The Danger of Falling in Love July 29, 2014

Fingers laced

Hearts paced

About to kiss, my mind slips

My heart skips

As the truth nears

And all my fears disappear

When you pull me back

To the reality I lack

As your thumb traces my chin

I can’t help but grin as you pull me in

I admit defeat and our lips meet.

The magical sensation

Of instant gratification.

I must have hit my head falling for you

In this world that is brand new.

 

Silence July 22, 2014

Silence screams static into my ears

Every minimal sound

Is a bomb interrupting monotony.

Yearning for interactions with others

Even if they are not my own.

 

The dull glow of the silent television offers no comfort

The thumping music diminishes-

Not welcome at this time.

Visitors are welcome

But none come or go.

 

Right now, the only comfort

Comes from my own sanity.

But how much silence can I take?

How much silence can this room hold

Before it breaks?

I’ll seduce you with my words

A conversation made of cards

Tell me what you want

What you’d like me to flaunt

I’ll give you a piece of me

Reveal myself for a fee

Give me your most valuable possession

Pay me attention.

Searing pain

Surging through my body-

A toxin tainting my lips.

I can’t speak…

My tongue

Like an anchor

Attached to a ship

That’s been destroyed

By your cannons.

 

The Motel Room June 2, 2014

 

The Motel Room

 

 

Despite the haunting front cover and the subject matter within, “The Motel Room” is not a horror story. Alyssa Cooper delivers a wonderfully crafted short story about life, and how even the absence of life can be seen as beautiful.

A tragic accident has occurred, leaving a man’s soul stuck inside the Motel Room where he and his wife used to spend their anniversary. Nobody can see him, so his days go by in a blur. Every day seeming just like the one before it. Through a series of events, he begins to discover his true power and realizes how freeing “living” without a body can truly be. He discovers happiness by abandoning his sadness and rediscovering the beauty that the world holds. Truly a heartbreaking tale about the journey of a soul!

I can’t wait to read more by Alyssa Cooper! 10/10

She wanted to see the world

See the ocean crashing on foreign sands,

The architecture of religion,

Accents in the cafes.

 

She promised to see the world

Dine with the Queen

Safari, Sahara, Sayonara

A journey from North America to anywhere else…

 

But her passport was expired.

 

 

Runaway April 10, 2014

Running away to L.A. under the shadow of the clouds

A day that I will never forget

I’ll be a runaway in L.A., my mind is set

I’m leaving today, a cloudy spring day.

 

I’m leaving today

Before I change my mind,

Before you realize I’m gone

And I see what I’ll be missing.

I’m leaving all of it behind.

 

Hollywood is dead, the stars are diminishing

The audience sits waiting, criticising, slowly killing them.

They need something new on the silver screen

And I’ll be the bright and shining star.

 

Hand me the script, I’ll captivate the crowd

Standing alone in the spotlight

Solitude- the way of life

For the runaway.
