The Paper Champions - Ask Emma

from Chapter 9: Sad Songs Remind Me by The Emo Diaries



answer this puzzling formula. lives are all woven. bound to the ground. a current runs distant. humming. put your ear to the ground. all around you. it strikes us down. a wave. your hand. a heart. it's irony. thirty-five years fighting fire-fought blazes. he drowned today on a monday. tuesday the weatherman's pleasantly wrong. it's a sign somehow i doubt it. wednesday emma sits. her hands grip the hand of the man. she cries. waiting. too many stories. the formula breaks down in lives. sighs. lay flat on the ground. it strikes again. this time there's a sound. a wailing. a screaming. all-loving. a doubt. walk patiently. the answer will come in time. say anything. i know your faith is tired. hope for the best and hold tight. say anything. i know your faith is tired. seems to me no one's sure. where and when the code will break. i just say question the answers. ask emma
