Where Did You Go?

Took a walk again tonight
Past your old house
Past our old hang-outs
Past all the old memories

Took a drive against tonight
Down that same old road
We drove down before
Down all the old memories

Where did you go?
Where are all the smiles we used to share
Where did you go?
Those intensely deep eyes are no longer there
Where did you go?
What did I do to make you not care
Where did you go?
Where did you go?


And, that's as far as I could get with writing that one. Maybe I'll go back to it some day and finish it. Or, most likely, I won't. I have so many unfinished lyrics and poems and stories and whatnot. And, once I lose my focus on them, I can't go back. And lately, this loss of focus has been happening quite often. It never fails - I sit down to write, inspiration having hit, and someone comes in and interrupts me. And it's really starting to get annoying. If I can't get the words out how I want them to get out, I'm going to lose it. My sanity is already starting to slip away. My patience is already gone.

I never did submit that short story to the contest. I finished writing it - but not editing it. And I really hated the ending I gave it. It desperately needs work before I show it to anyone, much less before I submit it to a contest. But, I was rather proud of myself for even writing it - a short story with no sex it in? I was very proud of myself. Although, I do have to admit, as I was writing it, I was thinking of where I could put a good sex scene. Ah well. Old habits die hard.

Went to Now & Then today - a 2nd hand store. My girls and I used to go every Saturday, until the weather turned really cold. Today was the first day in a couple months that I've gone. Bought a couple smut books. Came home, took a nap, then read one of those smut books. There's one problem with reading those though - every time I finish one, I think "I could write better than this...." And yes, that came to mind again today. I'm a sad, sad, creature.

But anyway, as I still have a sermon to write today (I haven't been doing very well at writing one every night during Lent), and I seem to have lost my concentration on my poetry/lyrics, and I'm sure no one wants to hear me ramble any longer, I must depart...

Tonight's Playlist:
Owl City - When Can I See You Again
3 Doors - Here Without You
