I tried to depict the story of the lovely Taylor Swift writing her song "Haunted". I read up on the story of the song and I think I did a pretty good job...
And, oh, I do NOT know who the guy is, but I have a feeling it's Joe Jonas, or Cory Moneith...

  "I'm sorry, Taylor.  I can't go tonight.  I have that...um...hockey game with the guys.  Sorry.  The party can wait, right?"

"No, it can't.  This is a once in a lifetime thing!"

  "I'm sorry.  No."

  He'd hung up then, leaving an eerie dial tone.  What was this, the third time in a week?  And every excuse was stupid.  There was no hockey game, I knew that.  Unless he was planning to fly up to Canada with "the guys".  He didn't even like hockey...

  I sighed.  I knew it was completely hopeless to even try to stop this, to rebuild the relationship.  He was fading fast, and I was even starting to prepare for the dreaded word.

  Goodbye.

  That moment, the moment I realized that the person I loved was drifting away from me, well...it sucked.

  A lot.

  So I'd grabbed my favorite sweater, my guitar, and my notebook, sat on the ground and wrote a song.  That was what I did best, as screaming and cursing just wasn't my nature.  I loved putting my thoughts and feelings into rhymes and melodies, and then putting it out for the world to see.

  Putting it out to embarass the guy it was written about, too.

  So I started to write.  As I did, tears splattered onto the page, and I started to sob.  It was moments like this that I thanked God for giving me my own apartement.

  It took me about three hours.  Once I was done, I wiped my tears on my sleeve and read my words.  I smiled proudly.

 

  All of it was true.  I knew that visions of his colorful green eyes would haunt me forever, even if I was happy with someone else.  And the chaotic feeling of confusion that I felt inside of me was captured perfectly.

  I kind of felt bad for him.  I mean, I was guessing that tomorrow or the day after I would get another phone call from him, this time saying that it was officially over...

  And boy, would he ever regret picking up the phone in the first place.
