Magazine, website & books written by teens since 1989


Why do I feel so alone
With everyone surrounding me
The silence over the phone
Constitutes the emptiness inside of me.

The fire inside has burned out
And the end is coming near
Tonight you’ll fulfill my doubt
That you won’t be staying here

Tell me you love me again
Just one more time before you go
Tell our story, how it began
“Once upon a time, not so long ago...”

You think I’m stupid but I know
Every little game you’ve played
‘Cause through your eyes it can show
How your love for me has fade

But it’s okay, it’s okay
I’ll move on one day
You’ll be dues I had to pay
To live life this way.

The LIne "You'll be dues I had to pay" reminds me of my own short story series. There are 2 parts still being approved as of 5/2/2013, but if you want to, check it out. A great song like this would go very well with the series.

I really like this piece. It's quite emotional and metaphorical and all that without being too over the top :)
