The Word. The Beat.

"What...makes me tick?hmmmm"


"The word. The beat. the sound. the rhythm. 

The feel. The drive. The pain. The smile. 

Specifically your smile

The start. The end. The music in my head. 

The thought that I can change....


"Actually, it's a jumbled mess in my head, in my heart. 

But at least somethings there.

I'm young, and stupid. 

But I'm capable of change.

I guess this sounds silly. let me try again."


"ummm....Murmured apologies, erasing mistakes. 

The fact that I can try again. 'Cause I'm still alive."


"What's that sound in my head?

Sometimes it's so powerful. Sometimes it hurts.

Here...Come closer... I think I can hear it...




..I got it!!!

It's a heart."
