Begin Again

Climb the building, take a look
The wind is calling out your name
The final curtain call, the lights turn out
There'll be no more pain
With every breath there is a memory
With every tear there is certainty
One step ends the game

Here you lived a life of black and white
Lost inside the gray
No colors painting starlit nights
No sunrise in the day
Where were you when you lost your faith?
Where were you when we ran from this place?

I could paint your life beautiful
Erase every fear, every tainted memory
I could paint your life beautiful
Turn the page, turn the lights back on
Take the center stage

No more tragedy need be grieved tonight
No suffered pain, no fallen tears
Here is where the players come to dance
No forcing through the years
Here we wake up to the colored day
Here is where we players come to play
No ending to be made

Take one step back, erase the words
And write a happy ending
No more lies or doubts
No more pretending
Here we lie in wait, wash away the sin
Here we find our faith
And begin again

Find the colors, find it all
Step away from the stage
Say 'the end'
This was all pretend
And tear away the page

I could paint your life beautiful
Erase every fear, every tainted memory
I could paint your life beautiful
Turn the page, turn the lights back on
Take the center stage

Life could be so beautiful

As a heads up, I don't do follow for follow. I follow author's books I love or member's I frequently interact with in the clubs.

I only read contemporary forbidden romance that is complete with at least one round of editing. I only read completed books because I have a terrible memory and read in one or two sittings. Only the forbidden because I'm just that closed minded.

Writing is my passion and my escape. It's where my heart's always been. I truly hope you love what you decide to read as much as I love(d) writing it. And keep in mind that a reader's comments make my day so much better, so don't be shy!

Part 2 of the last chapter has just been released! I know some of you wanted to punch me in the face for ending it where I did, but this scene I definitely needed some extra time for and certainly ho...
