@emberynus-the-dragonslayer Ooh I really like yours! Lyrical is absolutely right… I was imagining music along with it as I was reading. I may end up writing a few chords into it – If I do, I’ll link the audio file somewhere for you!

I have a contribution as well. (We’ll see if this even posts – I had issues posting on another topic earlier):

Knowing How to be Alone

I got scared, I got unsure
Stretched it out and caused us pain
Broke it off and went my way
Stood outside in pouring rain
Partly healed and partly broken
Not knowing how to be alone
Knowing it’s something I need to learn

Found comfort in another friend
Slowly healed a little more
Realized how much I didn’t know
Learned the past isn’t easy to ignore
And still unsure and hurt
Not knowing how to be alone
Knowing it’s something I’m learning

Slowly, surely, hurting less and smiling more
Thought I was getting there, lesson learned
But he needed something different – that’s ok
We parted on good terms, no bridges burned
It still stings, there’s ups and downs
But I’m slowly learning that
Knowing how to be alone
And wanting to be alone
Are two completely different things

“Enough! Be quiet! I can’t hear myself think! I can’t hear my teeth chatter!"
