Breathe No More
by Amy Lee of Evanescence
I've been looking in the mirror for so long.
That I've come to believe my souls on the other side.
Oh the little pieces falling, shatter.
Shards of me,
To sharp to put back together.
To small to matter,
But big enough to cut me into so many little pieces.
If I try to touch her,
And I bleed,
And I breathe,
I breathe no more.
Take a breath and I try to draw from my spirits well.
Yet again you refuse to drink like a stubborn child.
Lie to me,
Convince me that I've been sick forever.
And all of this,
Will make sense when I get better.
I know the difference,
Between myself and my reflection.
I just can't help but to wonder,
Which of us do you love.
So I bleed,
And I breathe,
I breathe now...
And I breathe,
I breathe no more
The Real You
22.) Do you consider yourself shy or outgoing? both depending on the situation, but usually, I'm pretty outgoing.
23.) Are you generally a calm/laid back or hyperactive sort of person? I wouldn't say I was either.
24.) Do you always speak your mind or do you often hold your tongue so as to not cause conflict? Well, I don't like confrontation, but more often than not I'm sort of thrust into it and well, it's usually because I ended up speaking my mind after holding my tongue for what seemed like forever.
25.) High school...cliques--they go hand in hand unfortunately. Describe the place you think you held/hold in those four…wonderful years. Any particular label (goth, prep, jock and so on.)? My high school was a little bit strange. It was a performing arts school that carried itself more like a college. We didn't have a varsity and everyone in our school was pretty diverse, so we didn't really have your average cliques. The closest thing we got to a "popular crowd" was the dancers and the actors who were in all the school plays, but they weren't like "Mean Girls" type people really. I mean eveyone still had their neat little groups like "band people" , "Musicians" , "Dancers", "Actors" , "the Japanese people", "JAPS" (who thought they were pretty popular but only on paper, no one really gave a shit about them unless they were maybe freshman and didn't know any better), "The Russian Kids", "The Music hall people", stuff like that , and the little niches weren't exclusive , like plenty of different groups intermingled with each other and I remember that I was friends with or at least knew different people from different groups. It's funny though, cause I still felt like an outsider, never quite good enough for what I wanted to be and do.
26.) In your current circle of friends, what hat do you wear (leader, listener, comedian...)? Um, I'm not really sure, it depends which group of friends I'm around. In some I'm the mother figure, in others I'm comic relief, and in some I'm the village idiot and the one that the leader pics on (I guess in that particular situation, I'm the "wormtail" of the group). I don't know, I don't really like titles.
27.) In an ideal world, where would you like to live? Anywhere and everywhere. I'd be well off enough that I could travel all over the place. My fav. locations are Egypt, Indian, Israel, Morocco, Miami, Salem, and New Orleans.
28.) What is your dream career? Well, I always wanted to be an actress, but then again, recently, because I like hospital so much, for some insane reason, I wouldn't mind working in the E.R. , another job that came to mind was working as a parapsychologist (Nope, not the ones that help kids with disabilities, I meant paranormal researcher, a type of real life Talamascan of sorts), Mostly, again, I just think it would be pretty groovey to have a job where I can either travel, have the means to do so, or get paid to travel.
29.) If you could meet one person (historical figures, famous person, living, dead, legend, myth...anyone) who would it be and why? That's a tough one. I would have loved to meet Dracula if he existed, I also would have loved to meet Joan of Arc or someone who had been on the Titanic or was around during the Salem Witch Trials. Living... I would really love to meet Angelina Jolie and Milla Jovovich and J.K. ROwling. I think they're all awesome and kick- ass Women, I would also love to meet Adrianne Curry or Tyra Banks.
30.) I grant thee three wishes. Use them wisely (Well? Go on, use them.) I don't wish and tell.
Post images of yourself here if you’d like.
Finally, do you want to be stamped a Hero, Villain or Both?
Either one is fine, but I'd prefer Female.
