Kissing Wounds: I must have been sleeping Before I met you. My heart was unbeating. My eyes unseeing. I didn’t want to feel. Didn’t care to. I was deaf, and I was blind. I passed each day. Each day passed me. Just colors and sounds, time and amounts. I’m done counting days. Now, because of you, I’m making days count.
You’ve turned wounds into wisdom. Teaching me to learn from my mistakes. Which ones are mine and which were out, out of my control. I was a shadow. Cold and dark. Angry and alone. Until your lips found mine. Now I have a goal. You woke me from the nightmare. Made me feel more than pain and loneliness. I love the way you frighten me. I want your kind of scary. Every minute of every day. Bliss. I only count minutes now, until your lips find mine once again. Until your lips find mine.
Sometimes when I’m kissing you I forget. I forget there’s a world out there. I forget that I’m a part of it. I forget that I’ve been hurt. All I know is you. The pressure of your hands. The softness of your tongue. The scent of your skin stuck on my shirt. You hold the pieces of me together and I don’t want that to end. I don’t want to fall apart again. Not again.
You’ve turned wounds into wisdom. Teaching me to learn from my mistakes. Which ones are mine and which were out of my control. I was a shadow. Cold and dark. Angry and alone. Until your lips found mine. Reaching my soul. You woke me from the nightmare. You made me feel more than pain and loneliness. I love the way I’m not scared. I want you. Every minute of every day for forever. I only count minutes now, until your lips find mine once again. Again.
You don’t need to talk. There’s no need for words to show me how you feel. Your body does that for you. It’s the way you look at me Like I’m the real deal. It’s in your touch Warm and gentle against my skin. Against my skin. It’s in the way your mouth smiles When your eyes find me across the room. Your silence screams for me. For me. Again.
You’ve turned wounds into wisdom. Teaching me to learn from my mistakes. Mistakes. Which ones are mine and which were out of my control. I was a shadow. Cold and dark. Angry and alone. Until your lips found mine. Mine. My soul. You woke me from the nightmare. You made me feel more than pain and loneliness. I love the way you frighten me. Frighten me. I want your kind of scary. Every minute I confess. I only count minutes now, until your lips find mine once again. And again.
Find me. Find me. Wake me. See me. Keep me. Touch me. Until you lips find mine. Again. And again. And again.

The mind's eye is an amazing thing. As you were reading the books, your mind created images of what the characters looked like. Well the same was true for me as I was writing about them. These are the pics that best portray the characters as I envisioned them while writing their story!
Park (Of course, we already know what he looks like!)
And let's not forget about these two important Before Now characters! :)
And one of my favorite pics of Park and Lucy!
As I was writing Before Now, this song just seemed to really sum up Park and Lucy's relationship.
