What if…

I’m a bit of a believer of life after death. I tend to think that there’s more to be experienced in a different life once this one is fulfilled. Being a writer with an insane imagination, my mind took that thought and came up with a what if scenario for those who are imaginative and weird like myself.

If you’re anything like me and you come spend 90% of the day daydreaming and having little stories in your head, then you’ve lived a ton of lives in your own imagination. Now, let’s say those stories and random thoughts are more than that. What if they’re actually memories from a different life on a different planet or in some sort of parallel universe? What if  you’ve already lived a dozen or so lives before this one and your soul has travelled millions upon millions of miles to get where it is today?

I don’t know about you, but I’m not exactly sure that’s a good thing. In my case, half of the stories I think of and daydream about are terrifying. I’d hate to imagine living in a world with zombies, vampires, monsters, aliens, etc. In my head, I’m the main female character. I get in trouble a lot and wind up in sticky situations. If, by some chance, my stories are actually memories (I’m doubting they are) then I’ve lived a lot of scary lives. I’ve been kidnapped, I’ve fought aliens and demons, I’ve travelled the world through hell and back just to save the one I love. It’s adventurous and wonderful, yet terrifying and exhausting to think about.

I’m sure my thoughts are nothing more than thoughts. That my dreams are simple stories created by the mind of a person who craves the abnormal parts of life. But, and this is a very bit but, if there’s any chance that they are more than just dreams and stories, I’m a little afraid to find out where my soul might head to next. I hope she’s prepared.

The Madman

Be still my dear
This won’t take but a minute
I promise not to hurt you
But you’ll have to stay with it.

For you see, I am a madman
I’m crazy as hell
I’ve brought you down here
So no one can hear you yell.

I know that you’re scared
And you want to know why
Believe me I’ll tell you
To you, I’ll never lie.

I am so in love with you
The kind of love that’s true
It pains me sometimes
And I just need to have you.

I can’t let you be out there
In a place so full of sadness
I can give you all you need
And not deal with all the madness.

I know you think it’s crazy
That I brought you to this place
But I just can’t let you live
Without me to see your face.

One day I know you’ll love me
You’ll feel the same as I do
And you’ll never want to go astray
Because I’ll always have you.
