“There was a time
I thought you would be the father of my child
The one and only I would love
Times change and now
We live thousands of miles apart
Hearts ripped into pieces
And one must like playing puzzle
To put them all back together
Our hearts still beat the same
Now different rhythm
And we slowly forget our songs we used to dance for
All I know is though
I have a puzzle piece of you here with me
That piece of your broken heart that so perfectly fit in with mine
And even after all this time
There is a distant melody of our love
Forever reminding me that you are still part of my life”
“I only left my panties on so you can pull them to the side.”
“Darling why didn’t you tell me you loved me. Somewhere deep inside I always knew.
But instead, you betrayed me and gave up your truth.
Darling why didn’t you tell me you were scared. Somewhere deep inside I always knew.
But instead, you put up walls and turned cold.
Darling why didn’t you tell me you wanted more. Somewhere deep inside I always knew.
But instead, you played games and made me look like a fool.
Darling why didn’t you tell me you were sorry. Somewhere deep inside I always knew.
But instead, you kept your distance and let our magic go.”
“Pin me down, flip me over and fuck me hard.
Then make me a cup of tea and talk to me about your dreams for life.
This is my idea of love.”
On the way to acting class, for the first time since I moved to London, I got off at Liverpool Street Station instead of Shoreditch High Street. I love the vibes in East London, and it’s funny to see how the scenery changes as you walk from fancy shops to more quirky ones, from one neighbourhood to the other. Trendy cafes, vintage stores, the modern architecture blends with the old one, and then as you walk towards Brick Lane, you get the more industrial feels. As I’ve never been in that area on a Sunday, I was in for a surprise. The streets were buzzing with some very talented street musicians and performers – and some less talented ones too. Market stalls everywhere, colourful fruits and veg, cool clothing and art. To me, this is like a blend of New York and Barcelona.
Anyway, to the point. I have been taking a few drop-in acting classes on Brick Lane, at the Actors Door Studio. Today we had a screen acting class to practice our on-camera skills.
