Short Story Saturday

My idea and thoughts take on the form of words on a paper. As I bring down my pencil, more words appear and new sentences are formed. Mistakes are made, erase marks are made. For I’m a deal at a quick mistake, and when I make one it takes the form of Lead. My pencil takes control, writing down words without my consent. My mind runs mindlessly as words begin to fill up line by line. My eraser is down to the nub and the dulled tip of my pencil has left me with only a few words to spare.

In exactly one hundred words, you can create a short story. A beginning, middle, and end, all in one hundred words. “Quality over quantity.” You hear it all the time, but you never take it accounted for. When writing an essay for english, your mindset goes to filling up those lines with words. Whatever it takes it fill up those lines…You add words here and there. You begin to babble about a topic entirely different from the one you’re supposed to be writing about. You incorporate vocabulary words in your paper that you don’t even know the meaning to. It’s a bad habit that you’re not willing to break. You’re so hooked on standing out from your peers that endless pages of words that go together like two mismatched puzzle pieces, seems to be the only solution. Break your bad habit. Begin to write from your heart and soul. Write what you feel and voice your opinion along with it while you are writing. Don’t fall into quantity…but quality. No one does you better than you do.

“Someone Else”

[Chorus]
If you’re looking for love
Know that love don’t live here anymore
He left with my heart
They both walked through that door without me
If you’re trying to find pity well, you need to look somewhere else
‘Cause I surely can’t help you
I’m hurting myself
I’ve turned into someone else
[Verse 1]
I used to believe love conquered all
‘Cause that’s what I’ve seen in movies
Come to find out it’s not like that at all
You see real life’s much different
[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t wanna see you go
I only wanna see you smile
It hurts so much just thinking of
Felt like this for awhile
I can’t stand to see us fail
We cried, we lied
Cannot pretend to take us back
To what we had, to make us feel alive again
Hold me close, don’t let me go, I hope
Tell me now is not the end
[Chorus]
If you’re looking for love
Know that love don’t live here anymore
He left with my heart
They both walked through that door without me
If you’re trying to find pity well, you need to look somewhere else
‘Cause I surely can’t help you
I’m hurting myself
I’ve turned into someone elseI’ve turned into someone else[Verse 2]
I used to believe love conquers all
‘Cause that’s what I felt when you held me
I thought you’d catch me if I fall
And fill me up when I’m empty[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t wanna see you go
I only wanna see you smile
It hurts so much just thinking of
Felt like this for awhile

I can’t stand to see us fail
We cried, we lied
Cannot pretend to take us back
To what we had, to make us feel alive again
Hold me close, don’t let me go, I hope
Tell me now is not the end

[Chorus]
If you’re looking for love
Know that love don’t live here anymore
He left with my heart
They both walked through that door without me
If you’re trying to find pity well, you need to look somewhere else
‘Cause I surely can’t help you
I’m hurting myself
I’ve turned into someone else

[Bridge:]
[2x]
Love is patient
Love is selfless
Love is hopeful
Love is kind
Love is jealous
Love is selfish
Love is helpless
Love is blind

Love is patient
Love is selfless
Love is hopeful
Love is kind
Love is jealous
Love is selfish
Love is hopeless
Love is blind

Yeah, yeah
Ooh, yeah
I’ve turned into someone else

On Miley Cyrus’ new album, Bangerz, this is her longest song, clocking in at 4 minutes and 49 seconds. In the past I’ve been required to write short stories and have them be in an exact amount, the hardest part of this is to be able to get across the message in such a small amount of words. I feel like this is what makes songs great. They are usually no longer than 3–5 minutes and they can get stuck in your head and if they do mean something to you, they can help you get through whatever it is you’re dealing with. Of course, all songs are open to their own interpretation, but the obvious message in this song is after going through the relationship, Miley has changed into “someone else” and although is sad about the fact things are over, she knows she’s become stronger now and can stand her own ground. Tell me what you think about this song, and leave your favorite song in the comments
Thanks! – Sebastian
