Get, Got, Gotten.


I smell chocolate covered cries
Falling from crystal coated eyes
I am blinded by the light
The light is blinded by the lies.
I can’t hear the phone when it rings
But I hear birds sing after they die.
Your tears run just like a river
These wounds run too deep to mend
I’ve tried my best to make it better
But you always break where I can’t bend
I sit amidst all my mistakes
I always learn when it’s too late
All the pieces erode in the weather
Chipped and brittle from the start
I try my best to out them together
That’s when everything falls apart


I smell crystal frosted eyes
Drenched in candy coated tears
I can’t see you through the smoke
And I can’t see you when it clears
And when these memories fade to gray
Everything else will fade away
Under the sun I melt into gold
Under the sun you learned to fold
And under it all we both pretend
That what we have wont fade away
I would eagerly fight off the night
If it meant that I could stay for a day
And even if you chose to forgive me
I would still be sitting here
Chewing on licorice flavored lies
Crying candy coated tears.

Nah, what makes me happy is dull and ununique, as it is almost what everyone else wants...though if I actually got it, I'm not sure what I would do with it...which is ironic...

Haha, I love you, too, but if you offered me chocolate-covered-mushrooms, I would take it.

Well, considering you're training to be Booslfash, then that would mean I'm training to be Dreamwriter, which I don't need to, since that's already who I am.  However, the captain is relevant to who I am BECOMING, and as such, I am still in training, though I'm learning quickly and from the best...

well captain, once you're done training to be the captain then you can be the captain. hows that captain? what do you do in training? this should be a natural birth thing. thats like me training to be boosflash,or you training to be...captain.
