Okay, seriously my last entry before bed.|
You know how communities have all the little "getting to know you" quizzes? Well, I can fill those out till I'm blue in the face but they aren't me, really. They aren't what makes me tick.
So I'm having a conversation with a friend of mine. I noted that the last stanza of one of my recent entries summed up what I've been working on in my life. He noted that I've always had flair for the dramatic. A poetry in my words.
Yeah, my writing tends to be that way.
When you sing, do you feel it?
The lyrics, I mean?
Although I don't take my writing as lyrics, it gives me the same feeling as when I sing a song. A release. A flood of emotion.
When I write, I'm displaying the text of images that I feel.
Which sounds wholly fucked up and non-sensical.
But I get these images.
Much like movie frames.
And turn them into words
That's why I'm so completely into lyrics.
I put them into this movie in my head.
And sometimes those movies are simple little moments. 1 single second, but a 3 minute song fits that second so well.
It's an abstract concept when I think about it.
Yep. I live in words. Some people imagine things in pictures. I imagine them in a text only version.
So, that's a little trip into my brain. The inner workings of the Holly Monster. Enjoy!
