*Accidentally bumps into you*

-What I said-
Oh, I’m so sorry..!

-What I meant-
I just wanted an excuse to hold your hand
Cause even though I do the very best that I can
I can’t face this world alone
There’s too much I don’t understand

*Accidentally holds your hand*

-What I said-
Is everything alright?

-What I meant-
What should I do if I can’t tell between
The reality of life or if it’s just a dream?
I can tell the world is real enough
It’s just not as pretty as it seems

*Accidentally hugs you*

-What I said-
Are you okay?

-What I meant-
I guess I never wanted to believe
That something I helped create
That I thought was more than beautiful
Could be so capable of hate

*Accidentally kisses you*

-What I meant to say instead-
So prove me wrong
And say it’s not too late
Or too bad, or no good and that
There’s still room for one more clean slate

Because another second chance is what everybody needs
I know the world is ugly but beauty lies underneath
And if we can figure out how to set our differences apart
Maybe that would be a great way for amends to finally start

Just.
Prove to me that the world is still alive
And I’m not the only person who doesn’t want to watch it die.
This is an experimental piece. I doubt it's an original idea, but the style is what I'm experimenting on, as is the mood. I attempted to mix two things I think are very difficult to have together. That is, I was aiming for a mood of adorable and serious. So, tell me what you think? Is it at least an interesting concept?

Great story being told and I love the ending. "Just prove to me that the world is still alive, and I’m not the only person who doesn’t want to watch it die." This line definately means the most to me though out of the whole work "I guess I never wanted to believe that something I helped create, that I thought was more than beautiful, could be so capable of hate..." Just cuz of the experiences that I have gone through.

I like it. ^_^  I thought the mood was lovely, and it flowed nicely. The end is my favorite part, I found it touching [in the "I'll hold your hand and we'll try save this" sense].

I like it :3 I see the accidently parts as the evolution of the relationship the narrator has with the other person. It's kind of like when people get over excited and kiss or hug the person they like without actually meaning to because they aren't sure if the person likes them back or not. The what I meant to say part kind of makes it seem like it is between a parent and child, mainly because of the something I helped create part. It's different in a good way. I don't think that adorable and serious are difficult to have together though, it's relatively common in relationships. The style kind of reminds me of Ellen Hopkins' books, but it's not exactly. She switches perspectives and does an overall reality type thing as well.

This is so sweet! My only qualm with this is that the narrator "accidentally" hugs, kisses the other person. That doesn't seem plausible, but maybe that's part of the point and I'm just not getting it.

There was a long debate on whether or not to even include those lines, actually. I thought it a bit superfluous, but was convinced to just give it a go and see how it would be received. I know it doesn't seem plausible to 'accidentally' do those things, but it's supposed to be meant in a sort of cute and adorable way. I dunno. Like it says, it's just an experimental piece, so I'm glad that you gave your thoughts on it. It is very appreciated :meow:
