citylove Posted November 4, 2011 Share Posted November 4, 2011 It's been three months since my boyfriend broke up with me. I miss him every day and I would be lying to say that I don't hope we will reconcile someday. This is one of the toughest things I've ever had to endure, but I've found some kind of comfort in writing-- I write him "letters" in a journal instead of contacting him, I write poems, I write angry rants about how much he's hurt me, I write and write until I sob and it's somehow cathartic for me. I'm a 19 year-old college student, so writing is already a pretty frequent activity for me (and it's always been a hobby), but it's taken on a new importance since my boyfriend decided to end our relationship. Anyway, I am home for the weekend so I've had some quality alone time with my guitar. Here are some lyrics I wrote about my boyfriend/our breakup. I'm working on setting them to music. I hope they aren't too terribly cliche or corny, but I figured it couldn't hurt to share them. Maybe some of you will understand what I'm saying. I scratched your name down in a blue-lined hiding place I left it lingering, purple pen and crimson face The glowing TV screen, white lights, knew I had found it “Minutes from 17,” I wrote But hey, look now, who’s grounded? And politicians never were your favorite crowd We had our secrets but I locked mine up too loud Heart on my sleeve, oh yeah, I swear that I was lucky Your shore still showed me years Was it my sand I was stuck in? And I scribed every moment Not in pencil but in promise I wrapped up my words in time To prove that you were wanted I folded sheets of paper Watched them float and bruise the air So can you tell me now What’s clearer elsewhere? I can’t remember now the way it feels to see you I’m sure that I would understand if I could be you But you’re away so while I climb I hold an anchor Whether it’s a chain or it’s the air It’s still a thank you Somehow it’s still a thank you Link to comment
