pink notebook

I hold a fancy pen, poised for attack, and tell myself words will come out like vomit.

I tell myself I can't help but write; it's what I'm meant to do.

I tell myself one day I'll wake up and my book will be written.

It will be perfect, I say, on the first try, like when I was born and I breathed --

It was hard, but I remember only easy --

been breathing too long to think otherwise --

yet breathing is hard. It's really hard.

The first story, I wrote in an office. My dad had an appointment in the other room.

I sat in a chair as a trained professional stuck needles in him to relieve pain.

It was dark outside and I was six.

I had a pink notebook and my mom helped me spell and I wrote about princesses sharing their food with their pets and their friends in a forest so deep you could swim in it.

But it wasn't that detailed.

It was a page, with a plot and a point.

I've lost both of those.

Now when I write I have neither --

I only have words, with no way to arrange them.

We are a labyrinth put through a meat grinder

Baked at 400 degrees above freezing

Boiled at absolute zero and melted

Sewn into clothing we like to call skin

Dreams thoughts arguments

Petty lies.

That's what I am.

I'm only words.

I'm only what you make of me.

Alice: The plot of the story was great. Loved both POV since I got an insight of what they both thought. The book is great for those in H.S. or college students since the romance is great. Literally made me cry and laughed in some of the story.

Jessica Hannett: I like the plot of this book and the shifts between the characters.The one thing that 8 don't like about this movie is that some of the sentences have words missing or mispeld and not very good punctuation.
