Working seven days a week now. I might not update with the most regularity, but I'll be around.
Random fire words
Unheard often
Even if for nothing, I will never stop them
Never stem the flow
Rapids rolling through my mind
Sometimes ebbing slow
I know that it has to lead me somewhere
And even if detested
I know at least they'll always be there
The waters of my mind
Carrying away all the taint of daily grind
Repetitively pleading for forgiveness
The same old song and dance
I know you don't deserve this
To witness my every crash and burn
Piece me back together to end up feeling spurned
I've hurt you worse than I've hurt myself
How could I inflict that on my dearest in the world?
I hurled everything I loved
Cast into the nothingness that I had then become
Succumbing to vices, like hits of crystal meth
Wishing I could hide from you or find the peace of death
But they brought me back again
Flat lines without luck
No matter what I did they'd somehow wake me up
Something keeps pulling me back in
I've turned myself around of late
I'm ready to begin
Living with myself
I know I can go on without depending on your help
So let me lend a hand
Some extra love, encouragement and happy as just friends  
Mallory, Please Read This
Honesty feels like someone I've missed for a very long time.
I've lingered in the dark too long
I couldn't hide from pain so strong
Something wrong was finally righted
Decided to face, not deny it
Ripped my heart out of my chest
Squeezed until all that was left was regrets about you
And then I swallowed them
Down with my pride too
Nothing new comes of the rot of which I once was rife
At least I now walk freely
Still looking for the light
Searching in the Dark
I've been gone a long time. Sorry if I was missed. Alright if I wasn't.

I'm Justin and I write lyrics. A lot. I have some stuff published, recorded and what have you, but my aim is to make a living doing what I love. I thought that was becoming a Librarian. In retrospect, that was a stupid idea based on a paycheck and health benefits. Since I was a kid, I wanted to open a restaurant and I think it's high time I got the ball rolling on that one. Culinary school is my next step. I guess that really doesn't say much about me, does it? Let's do the basics. I'm 5'7... or 5'8, I'm not sure. Brown hair, hazelnut eyes and permanent angry eyebrows. I'm not always pissed, I just look that way. Also the reason I look insane instead of happy when I smile... I enjoy simple things, like music and cheap suits. Brown corduroy is pure comfort to me. Details, details.... I suppose I'm single, though I hope to ammend that. I live in Kingston Ontario. To be honest, it's not all that much better than the middle of nowhere. I spend most of my days reading, writing and daydreaming about mundane things that should be reality. I can't really think of much to say about myself, but if you read my work, you can form your own opinion.

I've been feeling a change in myself this past while. I find that the more attached to the one I believe to be my "soul mate" I become, the less I feel the need for others. I've started spending a lot of time alone again and I really don't mind it. I'm writing again, I'm starting new programs. I've even decided to have another go at working, as terribly as that seems to go for me. I want to be able to travel while I'm young and see her... She's the driving force behind my new ambition. There's something about her. Everything, really.

I miss you a lot.  I hope you are doing well.  You'll come back soon, I hope.  If not, I am always wishing you the best.

Better late than never, I hope. Sorry I've been away so long. I guess I fell off the grid for a while. I've missed you too. Turns out there are few people as kind in the real world.

It is great to hear from you again, truly :).  No apologies needed, I understand how life goes.  I do the same thing, sometimes.  People in the real world can be pretty shit, I must agree.
