Rust on a Razorblade (Art & Lyrics)

"Rust on a Razorblade" (c) Heather

Time is like rust on a razorblade, you don’t know it’s there ’til you’re bleeding alone, and the infection is seeping in, you’re feeling the sting, where did the rest of you go? And pain is like a clock on the wall, a constant reminder of all the times that you fall, Ticking and tocking, It’s never stopping, Were you ever happy at all?

You reach out, But nobody’s there, Clawing for more, Screaming a prayer, Feeling like nothing can ever improve, Nothing will ever be better for you,

Heartache is like the watch on your wrist, you carry it with you, like all the things that you miss, but you stopped believing in the good things you have, forget what’s in front of you, dwell on the past, Memories are the bane of your existance, you’re always reminiscing about the things that you lack, It’s time to step forward, Don’t ever look back,

You reach out, But nobody’s there, Clawing for more, Screaming a prayer, Feeling like nothing can ever improve, Nothing will ever be better for you,

You reach out, Alone and scared, Begging for mercy, Whisper a prayer, Feeling like something is changing inside you, You can move forward, Believe it it’s true,

Lyrics and Art by Yours Truly.

Happy Adventures,

    This is…beautiful and amazing. I can connect to almost every word. You are such an amazing drawer and writer.

      Thank you. I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to share it, and I’d been floating around with the lyrics in a Notepad file for about 9 months now. Finally I decided to post it, because sometimes the dark times that I go through and overcome can help others. At least, that is what I hope.

    I opened this post and was blown away by the picture, but then I read the words…

    It moved me to tears. I don’t know if I interpreted the piece in the way you intended, but the lyrics reached a place in my heart that has been shut down for a long time. I won’t go into detail, but please know that I am deeply touched by your gifts of writing and art.

    Keep pursuing it. You’re so special ❤

I’m Tweeting (Yikes!)

  • So, I started going by my middle name in college because I've always liked it better. Now I'm Renée, and can be tweeted at "teafaellana." 3 years ago
  • I keep reading fanfics to tide me over until #OUaT is back. I can't wait to see more character development of Regina! #EvilRegals 4 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 4 years ago

Heather loves hats that are designed to look like cute animals, fairy wings, cheese pizza, swimming in ponds, roller blading, taking silly self-portraits, learning, spending time with people, and just about everything else too. Heather does not love ... well, there isn't a lot that she doesn't love. You can probably figure it out after a little while!
