Despite Everything...

Despite everything
Everyone says
About your creation
It still brings joy
To some.

Despite everything
Every crimson rose
Has it's sharp thorns.
It's beauty still brings
Some happiness.

Despite everything
The world does
Fights for a reason
Though some bring
Horrible damage.

Despite everything
The words may hurt
Hearts will break
But you will still
Bring brilliance.

Despite everything
You have inspired
So many people
To dream on
And accomplish.

Despite everything
Pleasure brings pain
Love brings hurt
Happiness brings sadness
Into life.

Despite everything
You have not let
Me down today and
Not tomorrow.
Despite everything.

Climbing the Ladder of Writing...Once Again

There's this song that I have been listening to because it really fits the feeling overall of my paranormal romance that I've been working on for almost a year now. Albeit, I was finishing my first vampire story, but this ghost story is my extreme love and baby now. I share tidbits here and there but I don't give away the ending.

But to refer to the song that has kept me going with this story lately is "Say Goodbye" by Skillet. Now I like ballads but this one I LOVE. It really fits the mood for my main character, Emma throughout the story once she finds something out.

I am glad that this song triggers the story into play. I know what happens and I can see snippets of scenes that I'm working on as I go. The horseback rides with Jon, and the special conversations and walks with Sam. Even the moments with Emily that make Emma and Emily more like sisters than strangers.
