Where's your scepter?
Where's your crown?
You're not the king
when I'm around

I paid the debt
you set for me
and so gosh forgive
the things I've seen

Falling down like dominoes
The sky is up
the ground below

Wrapped up in her silky lies
You'll never see
her traitorous eyes

'Cause one two three
that's the count I see
the beat I walk to talk to
everything I want to

Pull my hand back
curl it close
send it flying
towards your nose

It's been enough
You're dying today
So let me say
it ends this way

Feel The Pain (Lyrics)

Never looking back
door is shut behind me
Turn the key and there's it's gone
(there it's gone)

Three foot solid walls of oak
blocking out the memories
a dam to the river of hopeless pleas

Feel the pain, feel the burn
Watch my eyes, as it hurts
Stretched out to
the highest height
Bungee jumped
through the night

And you dragged me back up to you
knocking down walls and bulldozin'
Careless shatters of heart of glass
The shards will cut you straight in half

And it's not even you, not really
You're just a memory, so silly
But just when they say you're name
it burns to say hello

So feel the pain, feel the burn
Watch my eyes, as it hurts
Loving at all the wrong times
Carelessness on all the wrong days
Dragged me back straight up to you
The window's glass and I'm looking through

Albums full of pictures
Smiles and kiss on the cheek
All of them are punctures
The lamp of kerosene
blow so pretty
(blows so pretty)

I'll close the door and lose the key
feel my pain, feel the burn
Throbbing chest it aches so deep
But come tomorrow you'll see me mourn

Messed up people in a messed up world
runnin' 'round like headless chickens

A smile turns to a wink then a lie
a teardrop falls through open air

Screams punches and blood galore
fly through the sky like a meteor shower

Noises made from behind locked doors
Close your eyes and say it's alright

Lies are flying through the atmosphere
Close the door and pretend you're not here

Turn the music up so high
maybe one day we'll reach the sky

Messed up people runnin' 'round
An atomic bomb is counting down


How do I know you aren't the same?
How do I know that you aren't the monster that hid under my bed for years?
How do I tell the difference between the charming smile and the perfect eyes?
How do I know you're not just like him?


Those words you read
that you always wished were yours
well what if you could have them all
what if you could be invincible
I never wanted to admit I loved you
But it led me here to saying 'I do'
I guess things never happen as we wish
But if they did where exactly would we be

RUINED: A NOVEL by Paula Morris

"Welcome to New Orleans: 
City of voodoo and beauty. 
Of hauntings and hurricanes.

Rebecca couldn't feel more out of place in New Orleans. She's staying in a creepy house with her aunt, who reads tarot cards. And at her snooty prep school, a pack of filthy-rich girls treat Rebecca like she's invisible. Only gorgeous, unavailable Anton Grey gives Rebecca the time of day, but she wonders if he's got a hidden agenda. Then one night, in Lafayette Cemetery, Rebecca makes a friend: sweet mysterious Lisette. There's just one catch.
     Lisette is a ghost.
     A ghost with a deep, dark secret, and a serious score to settle.
     As Rebecca is drawn into a web of curses and cryptic sustoms, she uncovers the startling truths about her own history. Will Rebecca be able to right the wrongs of the past, or has everything been ruined beyond repair?" (from the back of Ruined, a Novel by Paula Morris).

Out of the hundreds of novels I have read, this is the only one I have been able to read twice in one week. I almost got to three times before the week ended.There has been no other book like this, though a few that have come close. Morris weaves such interesting characters with so much depth and reality, that sometimes you forget that this book is fiction.The plot is strong and well done, with twists I never saw coming (and that says something).

Even though it has been about two years since I read this book, I still remember almost every detail. From the first words, you're captured as Morris' alluring voice drags you under the water like a siren might to a sailor. And when she finally lets you up to breath, you only want to dive down once more. Luckily, with her other two novels, Unbroken: A Ruined Novel and Dark Souls, you can. Or, like me, you can just read it again.

The characters in this book are strong and well developed, all having secrets and lives that you uncover one by one. From Lisette, the ghost herself, to even little Ashley, someone who was Rebecca's friend at some point. Also, unlike what seems to be a great number of books popping out along store isles today, this book isn't cliche, and the characters aren't perfect people. There is diversity like none other. You have your queen bee, the new girl, and the Mr. (Not So) Perfect, but you also have the half-crazed pyromaniac, and said pyro's little sister.

I would give this book about a nine and a half out of ten stars, the second highest rating I've ever given. The first going to Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine. So seeing that, you really know that, at least to me, this book is amazing. I definitely recommend it to anyone! Guys and girls alike. Any age over about eleven.

Rating wise, I'd give it about PG. Light cussing here and there is the only reason, but no more than two or three times. And it just takes more thought, being teen fiction and all.

Check out this book, like right now!!!

Just a little broken
Just a little beautiful
Just a little lovely
Just a little wise


We're stealin' stars and drivin' cars
we take the cake and away we make
like rabbits and the rivers and turtles and the hares
never hear a frinkin' sound, yet here we are, we're everywhere

We wake before the dawn
we lie under the moon
the stars look down upon us
little kids before our doom

But here we are
we're rising up
you see the sights untold

We're kicking butt
we're winning home
and no matter what
we'll always know

Me and You

I've reached a new page
a new beginning, fresh
the old subsided
forgotten, no less

One more start
with one less bruise
we all know the game
and we know how to lose

Rain, rain
it falls around
slipping, smacking
it hits the ground

We're like the raindrops
recycled and new
we hit this bottom
as me and you

Once upon a time
we were white as snow
the the war hit
and we weren't ready to go

But now we're clean
the cycle is through
for the final time
it's only me and you

A Confession

You walk both worlds, you've seen them collide
You can't always run, but you can always hide

The respect you have is never what you want
The wants you need are the things that daunt

What's this thing called 'good night, sleep'
When all you see is water so deep

You're like a poison with no antidote
You can't help but always be alone

You never seem to get what you want or need
When all you are is the diversity

You can't be labeled as anything but strange
You know no matter what this can never change

The pen is your poison, the writing your drug
No one sees through their feigned kisses and hugs

Talking isn't how you really communicate
but forever isn't always worth the wait

This person is you, deep dark and depressed
no matter what else you only want to confess
