Get, Got, Gotten.


I found myself in a dark empty room,
-The doors sealed and the curtains drawn-
trembling in the corner with a broken bulb,
That was casting shadows on the wall.

Each of the windows had their own face,
through the wooden boards they’d speak.
Each one had warned her not to stay,
And made it so that she couldn’t leave.

Every single night was a restless night,
For the figures lurking in the gloom.
Some of the floor tiles would awake,
And silently creep across the room.

For her this had become too much,
She needed someone with whom to talk.
Her and I had become really close,
By means of a mirror on the wall.

While she helped me reconcile with myself,
I helped her recover from her mental fall.
So she honored me with a broken light,
That was casting shadows on the wall.

I think it's funny when you don't know you're being awkward till the person tells you.

I can't remember the name, but it meant "orange" or something...and it was more in the suburbs than in the city...it wasn't downtown and it wasn't by the beach....I can't remember "Manderin" or something, but we only lived there for four years, and I was 4-7 years old, so...

Seven question marks take the place of a simple question mark and exclamation point, but I didn't feel the need to put and exclamation point when all I really wanted to know was whether or not you lived in Jacksonville, because that's just weird.
