What it Took to Realize & Voodoo

Standard

Well, I finally did it.

Many-a-years in the making and I published What it Took to Realize/ Voodoo in paperback and for kindle thanks to Createspace and Amazon’s wonderful self-publishing programs.

Please check it out, inspired of course by Alexz Johnson and her amazing song Voodoo.

What It Took To Realize
Morgan never really fit in at school. Besides her abnormalities due to the fact that she was half-human half-mermaid, she was the school’s biggest outcast. Her number one tormenter being the head cheerleader and a pixie. Other than being a mermaid who lives with her water-nymph guardian and trying to keep it a secret in a school of mortals and mythical creatures, she lead a pretty uneventful life. That is until Leroy, the school’s hot new quarterback and vampire, asks her out on a date. Suddenly life is becoming more complicated and all the new events in her life raise up old questions like: Who are her parents? Where did she really come from? What’s up with the nightmares? And why is the new girl, Emmaline, being so friendly?

Voodoo
She is immediately drawn to Morgan the moment she sees her reflection in the review mirror of her Volkswagen Beetle. “Voodoo” by Alexz Johnson was playing over her radio, and if not for Ginger’s whining, it would have been a movie-made moment. Emmaline doesn’t think much of it the first time “Voodoo” begins to take control of her stereo, but when she begins to hear the song every time Morgan is around, she knows it’s no mistake. Pretty soon she learns her and Morgan are destined; that she is destined to save Morgan, but how or from what she has no idea. How is she going to save Morgan if she doesn’t know what she’s up against? As she gets closer to Morgan will she be able to control the desires to be with her?

I Am Yours

Standard

You hold me under your spell
I know it all too well
The emotions gurgling inside
Bubble and boil
Under your command.

I am your puppet
A dancing little gadget
You keep me in your pocket
Pulling me out
Like your private little poet.

I am your voodoo doll
Life size and all
Even got an energy pack installed
Even though I can walk tall
For you, I just crawl.

You have my binded to you with magic
And I pretend not to feel it
To feel the technologic
Heart fluttering in my chest
The love I burn for you makes no sense.

Love Spell (2008 Re-Write)

Standard

Original written 6/22/08:
I see you in the hallway
I’ve got a secret to share
The reason you look at me
That way
It’s no mistake
I promise you
Our loves not fake

I put a spell on you
A spell of love
So that every time you see me
We fall in love
It makes you’re heart turn to mush
And you’re tongue gets tied
That’s how I know you’re mine

We are the green envy in everyone’s eyes
We have something they want but can’t find
A relationship so strong
Can only be conjured up in time

I put a spell on you
A spell of love
So that every time you see me
We fall in love
It makes you’re heart turn to mush
And you’re tongue gets tied
That’s how I know you’re mine

You love me and I love you
That’s good enough for me
This is more than a spell
You have over me
When ever you’re around
My knees get weak
I can’t believe you’re finally mind.
I’m finally yours
How lucky am I?

You put a spell on me
A spell of love
So that every time we meet
I fall in love
It makes my heart fall to mush
And my tongue gets tied
I can’t believe you’re mine.

I see you in the hallway
I’ve got a secret to share
The reason you look at me that way
It’s not mistake
I promise you our love won’t quake

I put a spell on you
A spell of love
So that every time we meet
You’re heart turns to mush
And you’re tongue gets tied
That how I’ve made you mine

We are the green envy in everyone’s eyes
Nobody else has stronger ties
Than us
A love so strong takes time
That’s why I’ve conjured mine

I put a spell on you
A spell of love
So that every time we meet
You’re heart turns to mush
And you’re tongue gets tied
That how I’ve made you mine

As long as you love me and I love you
That will always be good enough
This is more than just a spell you’ve got on me
Whenever you’re around my knees get weak

You put a spell on me
A spell of love
So that every time we meet
My heart turns to mush
And my tongue gets tied
I can’t believe your mine.
