Nothing [A Poem]

You told me I was beautiful

I guess that meant nothing

You told me that you wanted to dance, out beneath the stars

I guess that meant nothing

You told me that you liked me

I guess that meant nothing

And then you told me nothing at all

I guess that meant something

And suddenly I wasn't beautiful

I guess that meant something

And suddenly you didn't want to dance

I guess that meant something

And suddenly you didn't like me

I guess that meant something

And suddenly you didn't want to talk to me

I guess that meant something

I know I'm supposed to move on and act like nothing ever happened.

But how can I?

Because while you did not like me

Guess what?

I liked you.

I guess that meant nothing.

Pictures pictures everywhere...

and not a one of them is good.

Well that failed. I was trying to allude to the lines from some poem. "Water water everywhere and not a drop of it to drink." ...or something like that. I never was a poet.

Anyway! Right now I am searching for photos of my beloved MMC and FMC. My favorite writing software extraordinaire, PageFour ((just the trial version, but it has all the perks and no expiration! Check it out)) does not like pictures, however. I must trick it into thinking that they are just text. The result? It's locked up right now. -_-

That's the reason I'm writing, I guess. Waiting on it to either work or self-implode. Which ever comes first. I just realized today that I could start writing! I've been trying to iron everything. I'm still a little unsure about the ending. The beginning, however, I can do. The first couple of chapters are to be from FMC's POV in the Greek Myth. The Greek Myth I have chosen is the one of Cupid and Psyche. ((I'm thinking of naming my FMC some name that sounds for 'soul', as that's what Psyche stands for. Just for a bit of fun;))

The story starts off with Psyche being this very beautiful princess. Very beautiful. Men ignore Venus (aka Aphrodite) in favor of her. Which, of course, makes Venus rather mad. Anyway! In the beginning she is being admired. Not loved. Just admired. You see, there's a hitch. Yes, men think she is the most beautiful creature alive, but they don't love her. They are more than content to see her, and then run off and marry someone else.

At the beginning, I think, is going to be some admirer reciting a Shakespearean love poem to her. See, it's a hint. If any smart Shakespeare person is reading this they'll go 'wait! this Greek myth took place waaaaay before Shakespeare!' Which is true. You see, there's more to this story than just a Greek myth.

Just kidding? and I'm baaaaaaacccck!

In an effort to push myself to write more I have revisited my old writing blog. Ah, memories ;) Anyway! I tried to move to that website, but I didn't like it, even though it did offer some perks.

So. It seems that I am back here for now. I haven't written in a while! Wow. One whole NaNo has passed. O_O ((Which, right there, shows you how much a geek I am)) On a random side note, I hate it when people call themselves geeks as if it's the coolest thing to say, when they are obviously not a geek. Please. -_-

Anyway! I've been expanding a plot idea had recently. I'm not quite sure what I'm gonna do with it. I don't want to wait till NaNo to do it...but I don't want to do it for JulNo. Perhaps I'll do my own modified JulNo-- with a smaller word count. Perhaps...

Anyway, it took me a while but I finally have a one sentence summary for my story. Have you noticed just how much a one sentence helps?? It gives direction to your novel, and clears away all the rubbish that surround the golden plot line. It forces you to really think "what is my novel about?" So, without further ado here is the summary:

--After witnessing the death of her entire family, one woman escapes into her mind-- and into the false reality of a Greek myth-- losing all touch with reality and the one doctor who is trying to bring her back.

That's the best I have so far. Even so, it doesn't paint a full picture. Eh. It's okay :) I'm really excited about the story, partly due to my love of Greek myths.

So! For right now c'est tout. Hopefully I'll go and flesh out my beloved plot idea a little bit more.

Au revoir :)
