Countdown to Mockingjay Pt.1: Black and Whites of Josh Hutcherson-Day 126/325

I don’t really like people knowing everything about me. I like being a mystery, and I even think I’m pretty mysterious to the people who know me really well. There is a part of me that isn’t available to the public, except in my songs.

When I’m writing I really do strive to be totally honest. I never make up a song. They either come right from my journals or straight out of my head because of something that is happening. It’s always been important to me that people think of me as more than just a ‘tune-sayer.’

Stevie Nicks, interviewed by Steven P. Wheeler, Music Connection (July 1994)

The Milk And Honey Route

Vicious breaking points,
the noise is getting to be too much.

I don’t belong here,
and if not here, then where?

Bouncing between souls and bodies,
desperate to find a home.

The vessel’s been shattered for years,
not once did I try to repair it.

This used to seem like it made sense,
how did I become this lost?

Living day to day in isolation,
aching for a sense of companionship.

The view was better looking back,
so beautiful, so pure, so happy.

I’m trying to take a picture of it,
but I know it’s already gone.
