From a funeral to paper.
(#) xXHeavenHelpUsXx 2007-09-02 11:40:24 PMthat was amazing and reminds me of when i lost my cousin.someone sold his some Xanax but it ended up being something else nd he OD'd.It was the first time I had seen him in 6 years. I saw him once.I fell asleep on the couch and I woke up on the day before Christmas Eve and saw my mom crying her eyes out.I asked her what was wrong and she yelled"Micheal Barnes is dead!"It broke my heart.The funeral was dreadful.His friends that let him lay down while he was in pain.His so called friends that told him to sleep it off.His friends that let him die when they knew something was wrong ,dared to come and act like they cared.sorry i'll shut up but thank you.it was beautiful

XD but really. that is just so...gah. damn my lack of vocabulary. (sad thing is that english is my first language...oh well...~sigh~)
i'm seriously in awe at the amount of emotion that you portrayed through your words. its quite amazing if i do say so.
i really like the fact that you showed how gerard and mikey are really only human; that they aren't some "super-beings" who dont feel pain or anything...
shall i state the obvious by saying that gerard was writing the lyrics to "Helena"?
right, so i'll shut up now, but i wanna thank you for this beautiful work of art set in writing that you had put up.
- Oh man, that just broke my heart. I've never had a relative die but I often find myself putting myself in the places of the main character and I would hate to see anyone that broken, not just Gerard.
I will definitely be adding this one to my favourites.

I came home from school and i remember how everything that morning had gone great for me- A on my history test, no mean teachers biting my head off, earned a cardio pass in PE... I just opened the front door and my dad was kind of sniffle-sobbing with his head in his hands and the phone on the floor where he'd dropped it. So i picked it up and i remember my uncle was still on it and i was only about 7 so i was just like "Why is daddy crying? Did he get in trouble?" and my uncle was like "no, sweety.... your aunt died."
I spent the rest of the evening consoling my dad.
Only time i ever saw my dad cry was when his mum died and when his aunt died. Heartbreaking.
ANYWAYS. Great, well written, touching. High marks!

When my grandmother died, I wasn't allowed to go the funeral, my family thought it would give me a bad memory of her. But she had Alzheimer's and a heart condition, so I can only think of her as the woman who once forgot how to turn off her oven, which led to my mother driving panicked towards her house to make sure she didn't burn her house to the ground.
I can't really see how that is a better memory.
I hope this wasn't true, and that Gerard knew that his grandmother was proud of him.
I feel like crying, luckily I haven't, but this was amazing. And I'm practically speechless for ways to describe how brilliant it was.

He can't take it, can't take the pain and he can't take the realisation that his grandma is gone. That in a cold, dark, white painted room her unmoving body lies, her soul long departed. He can't take the fact that while she was dying he was drinking his problems away, singing to half the world and laughing with his friends. He can't take it that while she was breathing her last he was driving home, singing madly with his brother to some shit on the radio, on top of the world. He can't take fact that he'll never be able to tell her all the things he wanted to and the fact that she'll never live to see what he wants to become. And he hates the fact that she never really lived to be proud of him because for all her life he was a failure, some fucked up freak in a basement drawing. She'll never see him save the world."
That hit me. Hard. This is amazing. Beyond amazing. I don't even have the words to describe it. Great, grreat job.
(#) MadiLuvsGeebear 2009-07-21 01:02:36 PMthis made me cry. And I don't cry. Well, not a lot byways. I'm speechless. This reminded me of web my Nana died. It took me a while to realize that she was gone and I seriously started crying my eyes out. I hugged my aunt and justcried and cried until no more tears came out. This story moved me.
I'm going to cry some more now.
