Toast's NaPoWriMo Thread

Alright, here I'll be sharing my NaPoWriMo things.


First one (started today, a day late)


"Too Much To Ask"

Mom I'm stuck here in Waterloo
Car broke down sometime around 2
And yeah I know there's nothing you can do so far away
But could you talk to me? Help me to stay sane
I know I tore it all apart
I know that this is all my fault
But please oh please, could you just talk to me?
Is it really too much to ask?
All I need is just some company
Is that really too much to ask?
Dad I'm here in Silver Spring
Thought I'd call to see how you've been
Came out here to find some peace, and no,
I donít think I'll be coming home
I know you're disappointed once again
And I know I'm not the son you always wanted
But man oh please could you just talk to me? Is it really too much to ask?
All I need is just some company
Is that really too much to ask?
I'll never measure up
Never be good enough
Just another misfit son
World-class grade-A mistake
All I need is just some company
All I want is just some love for me
Is that really too much to ask?


/angst/
Okay so it's actually a song. But it counts, right?

"Reminiscence"

We meet again, you and I
Staring up at the same night sky
Though half a country apart
We'll always be near at heart
It's true what was has been
And it will never be again
We made amends and said goodbye
But I can still feel you in every sigh
You see, when you decided to go
You left a mark here on my soul
And the memory, though it may fade
Will surely never go away

"Cracks in the Ceiling"

Lying here, staring
At the cracks in the ceiling
Hoping for a sign of life
Turn out the lights
Throw my heart into the dark
Hope for a hopeful morning
What have I done today
I've got a head full of thoughts
But I don't have ____ to say
All I do is think think think
While life piles up around me
Maybe I'll just have another drink
Tell me if you find my mind
I think that I misplaced it
Somewhere I crossed the line
Now I just feel wasted
Phone light on my face
Clock's wasting away
I've got to leave this place
So much on my brain
When I need to fall asleep
I think I'm going insane
I've got to find a way
To make it through this day
I guess I'm trying to say
That I've got to get away

"A Piece of Your Love"

You showed me how to hate before I learned how to love
You taught me how to fear before I learned how to trust
You showed me how to run before I learned how to walk
You taught me how to hide before I learned how to talk
Nothing that I did was ever quite enough
All ever wanted was a piece of your love
You showed me how to lie before I learned to tell the truth
And you gave me reasons why I should never trust you
Nothing that I did was ever quite enough
All ever wanted was a piece of your love
Do you like what you see
Now that there is nothing left of me
Tell me do you like what you see
You made a skeptic out of me
Could I be enough
To earn a piece of your love?

"Christian Cynic"

Put your knowledge in your books and store them on the shelf
Put away your pretty looks and take a look at yourself
The love that you profess doesn't really look like love
You're giving so much less but your lies fit like a glove
Tell me He'll make me rich and I'll chase it like a bone
Name-and-claim is Osteens pitch, and we all can hit it home
Preach your gospel of hyper-grace 'cause all I wanna do is sin
Sell it with your smiling face; I'm ready to dig in
Lay me on a dead saint's grave to soak up his anointing
Necromancy makes you a slave, but that's where Johnson's pointing
Violent demon-worship cult, International "house of prayer"
See the compounding result of the sin that happens there
Red pill, blue pill, Matrix Christianity
All of it just makes me ill; I'm sick of the insanity
Gut the building, destroy the walls, strip away and see
In all the tangles of who we are, the truth will set us free

"Nicole"
(to be recorded)

Where was I supposed to go
When you left me there all alone
Where will I now find my rest
A place where I can get you off my chest
You left me there that day
A broken dream and matching heart
Call me up eight months later and
Say you're wondering how I've been

I won't do this again.
Not this time, not again

Now I guess I finally know
How a heart can grow so cold
Regret seems to last forever and
You're the only person on that list

I won't do this again
Not this time, not again

Nicole, open up your eyes and see
Everything you did to me
Oh, won't you just leave me be
I'm better off without your company

For every time I trusted you
To turn around and say we're through
Did you know (did you know)
That you'd end up alone?
