I could not abandon my buddy Lance’s 100 Word Song blog hop two weeks in a row. And when I saw this week’s selection was a 90s gem, I knew I had to fire up my keyboard and bang out a quick 100!
I’m not sure why this song made me think addict, but it did. Here are my painful 100 based on October Project’s “Deep As You Go”.
I’d watched his eyes roll back, his jaw soften; his arms go limp. He called it taking a trip, a trip to a place where I could never follow.
Sometimes I’d place my cheek over his mouth and feel the tickle of his breath, my eyes watching for his chest to rise and fall.
Sometimes I’d lie on my back on the cold floor and count ceiling tiles or name state capitals.
Sometimes I’d merely listen to the clock tick and let the tears fall freely from my eyes; my soul drowning in sorrow. And he let me drown.
Stay positive & love your life!
