FC: Paige Langley | Things In My Heart
1: Once Upon A Time Once upon a time There was a dark, dreadful dream A sweet, loving princess A land far away A sly, sneaky cat A giant cheeseburger A little crumb A beautiful, sunlit castle A poor, humble chef A rich, handsome prince A big, scary forest A horrible, tricky goblin Your imagination Your one upon a time
2: Envy I sat as still as I could. Ishea’s slow pencil strokes finally stopped as she finished her picture. It was a perfect replica of Zero from Vampire Knight. There wasn’t a single flaw. Ishea looked up at my gawking, and probably very funny looking, face. “I’ve told you this a million times! You can always just look up on the computer how to draw!” Ishea said, shoving the picture on my desk. “Wow,” I breathed. “It’s just a drawing,” She huffed. “I know this is going to sound corny, but it’s really magical how you draw.” I said. “Just have self-confidence!” Ishea raised her fist into the hair triumphantly. “How’s self confidence going to—“ She cut me off. “You have to practice, work at it; you have to BELIEVE you want to draw. It’s not just something that comes to you overnight.” I thought about it for a minute, and then I pulled out my own sheet of paper. “You’re right! Self-confidence I can do that I think.” Ishea laughed and I was laughing with her. I knew in my heart Ishea was right. Drawing was something I loved and I wasn’t going to let that downfall-of-an-emotion called envy get to me.
4: December 7, 2000 Thornton, Colorado 5020 E. 127th Way Dear Dylan, How are things Cousin? Good? Good. Things aren’t the same ever since you left. Mom says you won’t be coming back for a long time and she says that you went to a place in the sky. I wonder what it’s like up there. Are there a lot of clouds up there? Are you staying in a big cloud castle, because that would be really cool! Mommy and Daddy started crying when they got the letter that you got transferred to the place in the sky. I don’t know why they’re so worried though. My cousin is big and tough! Remember when you threw that football straight over Auntie’s house. CRASH! Right through the neighbors window! I wish I had caught it on tape. Dylan, how come some people from the army came when they were delivering your transfer letter? Why didn’t they just let you come home and tell us that you were being transferred? Usually they let you go home when they have announcements. I asked my mom about that and she said that I wouldn’t understand. She thinks I’m too little. I’m not little anymore! I’m almost six years old! Maybe they’ll even let you come home for my birthday! Well, if you’re going to be away for so long, I’ll take care of Pete. I know how important your dog is to you. I’ll even clean the house! We can even play Barbies again! You always like to play as Theresa even though you SHOULD play as Ken. That’s okay though, Ken looks kind of like a girl anyways. If it’s okay with you, can I have a souvenir from the sky? You always bring me back something
5: when you’re home. It’s always so fun! Mom is telling me I have to go to bed now. Tomorrow we’re going somewhere, and I get to miss school for it! Love, Your Cousin Paige!
6: A Family A psychotic dog An annoying stepbrother An equally annoying stepfather A devil... okay, a little sis An insane mother A strange family My family
8: Time It seems like I woke up in the future Time swirled around me, Then, When I got up, It was my thirteenth birthday The clock ticking faster and faster Then I’m graduation, Writing my first novel, Getting married, Having a child, Then I’ll be watching my own child grow, Then my grandchildren Soon I’ll be on my death bed And it’ll seem like I was celebrating my thirteenth birthday just yesterday Then I’ll think of all the things I wanted to do But even I have to do Time is enemy to everyone So, I think, I have to have a good life Before Time takes my hand with an icy cold grip That us humans can only describe as death
9: Who Is ‘They’? Who is ‘they?’ Everyone says it But do ‘they’ really know what ‘they’ mean? Is ‘they’ Chuck Norris Or Michael Jackson? Is it that guy? The one that’s as crazy as a dog listening to a dog whistle? Or maybe it’s Santa. No? Who then? Who is ‘they?’ Me? You? Him? Her? Us? I just want to know! Who is ‘they?' | Inspired by my grandmother. She loved mind twisters. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART!
