Science Fiction

‪Science Fiction can’t “jump the shark”. Because it already does since it’s inception. That’s why it’s called, “science fiction”.‬

I’m Sorry

can’t forget the look on your face
When you looked at me and slammed the door
It’s just seemed really out of place
When you said you couldn’t take it anymore
You wouldn’t tell me his name
When I found his things in your car
But I guess I’m the one to blame
Since I was the one who let it get this far
Now it’s been twenty months gone by
But here you are knocking on my front door
I just don’t have anymore tears left to cry
And I’m guessing you’ve come back for a whole lot more
Sorry I replaced you with somebody new
Sorry I replaced you with someone who is true
And I’m sorry to announce I’ve replaced you 
with someone who loves me 
A whole lot more 
than you do
You’re begging and pleading with me
To convince me that you’ve changed and if I give you another chance I’ll surely see
But I just don’t want another dance with the deranged 
You mentioned that he walked out on you
And I tried really hard not to laugh out loud
Your story sounds so very sad, bleak, and blue
But my dear you really need to stop carrying that old black cloud
And you try again to sweet talk me with your charm
And I’m the first to admit that I kinda really like it
And my broken heart’s thought of you is still very warm
But I’ve just grown way too old for this shit
Sorry I replaced you with somebody new
Sorry I replaced you with someone who is true
And so I’m sorry to announce I’ve replaced you 
with someone who loves me 
A whole lot more 
than you do
So that’s my story since you went away
Sorry your hearts broken, but what can I do?
And I’ve said all that I can surely say
Maybe the next time you’ll treat someone better than you do
Sorry I replaced you with somebody new
Sorry I replaced you with someone who is true
And I’m sorry to announce I’ve replaced you 
with someone who loves me 
A whole lot more 
than you do
Yes honey
Someone a whole lot more
Than you

Give In To Me

You
You know you want me
You
You won’t let your self believe it
Just give in to me
You
You will set me free
But You
You want your hooks set in to me
Just give in to me
And you live in a state of denial
And you would rather make our love final
All because you don’t want to get your heart hurt
So you’d rather go first
Than give in to me
Don’t deny
Don’t defy
Don’t even lie
About what your heart wants
And what your heart fears
Just give in to me
You
You’d rather go it alone
You
You’d rather be safe alone
Just give in to me
You
You’d rather choose to make your own mistakes
You
You’d rather face it all alone than to
Just to give in to me
And you live in a state of denial
And you would rather make our love final
All because you don’t want to get your heart hurt
So you’d rather go first
Than give in to me
Don’t deny
Don’t defy
Don’t even lie
About what your heart wants
And what your heart fears
Just give in to me
Give in to me
Give in to me
Give in to me

Dirty Girl

I’m not saying that
You’re a dirty girl
But ooh
You’re a dirty girl
It’s a dirty world
And mud catches mud
But you just want to play in the dirt
Oh, you dirty girl
You want to get so dirty with me
And oh, you want to wrestle with me
And do dirty things
Oh ya dirty girl
You call me late at night
Telling me such dirty things
And how do I go back to sleep?
You dirty girl
Oh oh hmn 
I want to get dirty with you
But I’m so uptight, upright, well alright
I’ll play in the dirt with you
Just this once
So feelings don’t get hurt
You dirty girl
I’m not saying
You’re a dirty girl
But oh honey
You’re a dirty girl
It’s a dirty world
And you don’t need to magnify it
By playing in the dirty mud
You beautiful dirty girl
You say you want to get dirty with me
And you want to throw me down
And get so dirty
Doing dirty things with me
Show up at my house with your dirty mouth
Telling me your dirty thoughts
And I now can’t forget them
You dirty
Dirty wicked girl
Oh oh hmn 
I want to get dirty with you
But I’m so uptight, upright, well alright
I’ll play in the dirt with you
Just this once
So feelings don’t get hurt
You dirty girl

Maybe You’d Say

I never really took the time

To look and find
What I really wanted
I thought that all
I really wanted 
was for you to call
But you didn’t really want me
And all I wanted was you
And I couldn’t see
That that
Would never be
I sit alone
Patiently waiting by the phone
Waiting just to hear your voice
So all I can say is
I love you
And maybe
You’d say that too
I walk the streets 
at night when the world sleeps
So I’d believe I won this fight
I sometimes think I’m wrong
Because I just don’t ever
Want to believe I was right
So I sit alone
Patiently waiting by the phone
Just wanting to hear your voice
And all I would say is
I want you
And just maybe
Maybe you’d say that too
I crossed many rivers
I went so far away
From you
But it was never as big
As the divide between
Me and you
I always thought I’d knew
What I was chasing to
Maybe I’d one day realize
I never thought of it
As getting caught
Running from you
But I still sit alone
Impatiently waiting by the phone
Wanting
So wanting to hear your voice
So all I could say
Is I miss you
And maybe
Maybe
Maybe you’d say that too.

Words and Creative Writing

Here are some thoughts of mine I thought I’d share regarding words.

“Indicative”. That’s a funny word to say. Say it. “Indicative”. Should’ve had a dirty meaning, then that would have made it more fun to say.

To my knowledge, I don’t believe I’ve met anyone, or seen, or done anything that was truly “bodacious”.

When having an intellectual discussion, I like to throw the word “hellacious” into a sentence.

What words do you enjoy saying? What creative words do you enjoy using when you write your blogs?
