Watercry - Playing PretendJoseph stopped. Had he just heard what he thought he heard? What the he--? He reminded himself he was ignoring the other person, but he'd already stopped too long. He backed up a few steps and eyed the girl sitting on the bench, looking at him smugly.
"Excuse me?" he said.
"A queen never repeats to those she desires not to deal with," the girl answered, turning away in an almost pompous manner. Joseph raised an eyebrow. She didn't look much younger than him. Was she seriously playing 'pretend' right now like a four-year-old? Nevermind that thought. He'd grown up with people with the maturity of four-year-olds. So she should be perfectly normal to him. But, really...WHAT?
"Sorry to be rude, but you don't even know me and you're already telling me you would lock me up? Do I really look that suspicious to you?"
The girl turned back to him with a sassy glare. "Oh, so you feel suspicious, do you? Got a guilty conscience goin' on?"
Joseph shrugged. "So what if I do or I don't?" This girl was
Watercry - InvasionInvade my kingdom, will you? Sophie huffed internally to herself, furrowing her brows and pushing several wet strands of her coppery hair from her face. It'd be straight to the dungeons with you if I were a real queen.
The girl crossed her arms, then continued walking. This person a boy, she thought, by the shape of the silhouette would most likely be too preoccupied with his own world to notice her, just like everyone else. Like mother and sis and nana. Just like everyone. The girl crinkled her nose in distaste, the streetlamp above her casting dark shadows across her face.
Her shoes sloshed noisily through the puddles as she trudged across the street, eying the boy (for she could tell that was what he was now) the whole time. He looked young, possibly around her age, though he could've been years older. Sophie sneered, shaking her head. He was ruining her rain, and he didn't even know it. She bit her lip and her shoes squelched loudly on the pavement as she came to a st
You asked.You asked how I was doing.
You want an honest answer?
I'm as swell as a black eye from Chuck Norris.
Just Checking...It's been while
It really hasn't been too long
But, for me, it's been a while
I really don't know what to say
Because I'm afraid anything I say is going to be stupid
How do I admit to you that
For the first time
You actually hurt me
I don't want you to know that
Because you wouldn't understand it
But it hurts more not to talk
Not to simply see how you're doing
You should see me in person
How I'm looking helplessly around the room
Biting my lip
Trying to think of what to tell you
Without telling you a lie
Or telling you the full truth
Friends don't break hearts
So how could I say I've been sick
Like my heart is nauseated by the thought
That we have a rift between us
A rift you don't even know exists
I keep being told
Just let it out already
Put it in your face
But you wear these sunglasses
These sunglasses like you wouldn't see through them
And they protect you
I could imagine you're happy that way
Why make you take them off?
I know I'm not the kind of art that draws your atte
Mazel TovSo this is the end of my ramble
But it's not over quite yet
I just have to tell ya
Dogs are waiting to get me
And I taste like a chicken in the pouring rain
You gotta spill the tip jar and catch all the pennies
Back flip on a bar stool for your daily bread
No one seems to notice that the paper is slipping
And the records are burning, yet the stove is dead
So if I get it right the next time
Will you mop for me, alright?
Punch her in the face and fly outta here
I'll throw you a bar mitzvah
Mazel tov tonight
I just wanna go home
But you were spinning in the streetlight shining
And my head landed in the stars
Mazel tov tonight
No one is leaving
Still we were gunning the windows shattering
And my heart landed on the floor
So I'm almost done with my ramble
But you ain't heard it all
I just gotta tell ya
Cats are after my money
And I smell like a pig in a frying pan
You gotta wash your apron in the sewer of Denver
Balance all the plates on your right ankle
You'd rather wear a tie around your
A Crack of LightSo this morning I felt like a crab with too much sand stuffed in his ears
And I wanted the salt of the ocean to just pour from my face
I lugged these pounds of sand tied to my hands and feet
Like a hot air balloon without a course
I was drowning in my own air, ungrounded
And I had somehow swallowed my fist as I went through the numbing motions
It seemed like I couldn't handle the little things
I was plaguing myself with my own pain
And the angry syrup flowing through my brain was like
A diabetic low on sugar, yet it was thick with the stuff
When you can't imagine climbing out of your heartbroken cell
Time seems to run all tortoise-like
Everyone hares in circles about you
Neither dream nor nightmare nor wake is your wake
In truth joy and discovery is simply slumbering a little longer
Peace works so hard that his muscles are fighting the lactic acid inside
Because the reality is
Peace can't exist without lots of pain
Without all of that, none of this purity could exist
The soundtrack sto
