My entry for the Singing (Filk)songs 'Round the Campfire Challenge at Camp Sick!Wilson

Original Song: Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper
A/N: This didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped, but I ran out of time to work on it, so I'm posting it anyhow.

Pain After Pain

Lying in my bed I doze and sleep through

the call from you

I pay now, broke wrist, contusions –

I’ve got a few

Flashback—movie nights—

All that left behind

You and me in memories,

Pain after—


And now I picture you—

What’s going on in your head?

How I wish I knew how you are

Are you alive or dead?

You only said, “Get out.”

I’m left behind—

Wishing time would rewind



If you left to find peace, it’s back here with me

Pain after pain

If you jump I can’t catch you, I’d be dying

Pain after pain


And when you forget me all my joy just

Fades away

I’m not enough now, not enough for you

To stay

Never told you what I felt inside

Now I’m out of time—



If you left to find peace, it’s back here with me

Pain after pain

If you jump I can’t catch you, I’d be dying

Pain after pain







Camp Sick!Wilson Drabble Challenge Entry

Author: lifes_own_light

Characters: Wilson, mentions of House.

Rating: PG-13

Summary: ‘Til all my sleeves are stained red from all the truth that I’ve said

Spoilers: through Moving On

Disclaimer: Not mine.  Never will be.

Warnings: Dark.  Depressing.  Content deals with cutting.  Could be triggering for some individuals.  Unbeta'd.  You’ve been warned.

A/N: Summary comes from the lyrics of “Secrets” by OneRepublic which inspired this double drabble.  Written for yarroway 's Drabble Challenge: 3) bat, red, echo.  Double drabble because I have no discipline and it refused to stick to 100 words.


Stray thoughts of House are batted away until he’s back home, reaching for the wooden box.  This is the only time he tells the truth anymore.  The only safe way remaining.  At work, it’s the everything’s-fine-smile.  Only here is the valve opened.  Only here the pressure relieved.  A temporary fix for a temporary life.  Hinges groan as the lid is pushed open.  Twenty years of memories spill out and go echoing around his head.  Eyes squeezed shut, tide delayed a little longer.  He takes the box into the bathroom.  A little calmer now that relief isn’t far away. 

The cuff of his left shirt sleeve is opened (the right stays unbuttoned now in deference to the ugly blue cast), but he doesn’t roll it up.  Red wicking up through fine white fibers is a beauty he was surprised to find.  He never could have guessed the variations in shape and form that occur as the liquid claims material.  The Bic is flicked, the flame applied to blade.  Only now does he allow well-remembered…well-loved blue eyes to become his focus as he moves the blade over once smooth flesh.  Trading pain for pain.  Truth for truth.  God, he misses his friend.
