Lately, I’ve been increasingly inspired by writings much more so than imagery. This is peculiar to me as I’m normally a very visual person. Anyway, I wanted to share some prose that has inspired me in the last week. These works have, for some reason or another, really struck a “chord” inside.
Me I’m just a waitress she said.
I went and bought a new head she said.
I look at you and I believe in you she said.
Screaming into the eye of the lens.

Remember when I caught your eye?
You gave me rainbows and butterflies.
We did enjoy a happiness.
When our love was over, I was such a mess.
I smiled at you and you smiled back.
That’s when I knew, there’s no turning back.
You said you loved me and I did too.
Now though it’s over, I still love you.
You’re in my mind, you’re in my heart.
I wish I knew right from the start.
All my friends said you’d break my heart.
A heartbreaker right from the start.
I tried to fight it, I tried so hard.
And everyday, I prayed to God.
That you and me, were meant to be
But you had another, you had a lover.
And now it’s dark, I don’t know why.
I feel like crying, just want to die.
I can’t look at you and you know why.
Though I tried so hard, to catch your eye.
