In case you never hear from me again, I’ve found heaven. Welcome home, Gretta James. (You can totally name a piano if you can name a car.)

My happy place.

Sixteen Going On Seventeen….Songs

                                       ………………………………..                                               

She’d always imagined love to be turbulent & volatile, an emotion that would sweep her up & break her to pieces & reshape her into someone she couldn’t otherwise have become.

                                      ………………………………..   

I may never understand why you left
I guess I just have to accept this is the way it was meant to be
Kind of like how I never understood how the ocean just stops at the shore
And why it doesn’t wash away the land
If only someone could hold my heart and my hand
And make it feel like you did, and not give up so easy
There’s no need to be angry, it’s okay to be sad
I just have to trust there’s something better for me out there swirling around in the universe
Someone who will believe in themselves as much as I do
And never take a wish for granted and always count the stars
Looking back, you’re always closer than you thought
There’s no point now in starting something new
The heart wants what the heart wants
And none of it matters in the end if you can’t love someone back
Love and truth are whispering, “you can’t start a fire in the pouring rain”
