Your lips, cracked and chewed

Your lips, cracked and chewed, look like worry. I can picture only anxious eyes above them. Remember the morning they bore twin scabs from your unconscious gnawing? I almost laughed, thinking, Victim of an enamored vampire. You chapstick them compulsively, but I imagine they taste of small pains anyways.

Sounds like something from 'Speak'. Is it, or did you make it up? Either way it's a very good piece of writing.

No, it's mine. I forgot about Melinda's lip-biting...

Wow, that's really good! I actually thought "what book is this from?" until I saw your comment. Your tone is really vivid. :)

It is like speak, but I think a good small bit of writing besides that.

I like this! The voice is dark yet funny. It does remind me of Speak--but I could tell it was your writing.

Awesome.
U know, I thought it was Speak 2. *blush* :)
