I love to laugh. They say comedy stems from deep profound sadness. They’re half way right… I do love to laugh.
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, I say a glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away. Or maybe a bottle.
I had a dream about you last night. You were looking at me like I was the only thing that mattered. I woke up and stared to cry… because I realized it wasn’t real.
I want to change the world,
help people who have no one else
I want to be the smile surrounded by tears
I want to be the courage, that drowns out fears
I want the broken and the bruised
the destroyed and the abused
the depressed and the confused
to come and listen
to this story all my own
I’ve been ripped down to my bones
stripped of all I ever was
taunted and tormented by the thoughts of what he did
what he does
The guilt, it eats my soul
surrounds my being,
swallows me whole.
I did nothing, out of fear
and now everything seems clear
what I should have done and didn’t
what I could have done but wouldn’t
I guess I use this lame excuse
that the sexual abuse
clouded and took over
but from that day I’ve known the truth
I’ll make something good come from this
help people like me
see that they are in control,
stand up, smile, and believe
you can still change the world
Yeah that’s my hope…my story,
in all its sad and beautiful glory
I saw a ghost today. I’ve seen them here before. Sometimes they haunt my dreams, but today it was real.
I’m over you. I promise, I despise you…or something of that nature. I don’t want to be yours… I’m not lying. Pretty sure you love someone else so I’m no longer trying to see why you gave up on us. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt your arms, your love, your smile, and I swear I’m truly over it. I’ll waste no more time, crying out my eyes. I think I’ve paid the price of trusting. and yes maybe when you walked by just then and gave me that slight smile, I flashed… I felt your lips on mine, all over again… And I realized the truth, probably a fact of life, no matter who you love, or even I , there will always be a part of us that will love each other till we die.
I don’t want you back. I don’t even miss you. But yes, when I see you, the echo of love… it just gets me.
Every day I’ll be posting. Short stories, poems, quotes, or even random Alice thoughts. If you have any questions, feel free to comment on any of my Go Ask Alice posts, including this one. My goal is to help people who need some advice, make someone feel better, or just write about something you want to hear about. So feel free to ask any questions about anything and if I can help or write about it, just let me know.
Alice is my way of getting out all these crazy thoughts inside my head. These lyrics and rhythms and words, and stories and day dreams and hopes….hope. Try to remember, if nothing else, that it will eventually get better. Even if it sucks now. And YOU are strong enough to get through anything. So stay strong, and if you feel weak, lean on friends, like me.
Have a great evening and remember, life is beautiful…
Just ask Alice
