Strangers in Paradise

(c) Terry Moore

Últimamente se me ha dado por leer Strangers in Paradise, así que estoy devorando ávidamente los tomos. La semana que viene no me quedará nada por leer... Así que tendré que pensar seriamente en importar los números que falten de USA, o morir de desesperación.

Terry Moore es un gran escritor, un guionista genial que sabe emocionar... Por ejemplo:

If You're Leaving Me

If you're leaving meplease don't tell me.
You're still pleasing me.
Do I fail you?
I will wonder today
If tomorrow you'll stay.
I can hear your voice turn cold
When you turn to me I know
I'm the one who won't let go
Are you blaming me for holding on
When you let me know

It's my last chance
And I know it's gone.

If you're leaving me
please don't tell me.

You're still pleasing me.
Do I fail you?
I will wonder today
If tomorrow you'll stay.

A Distant Scream

Somedays I think
I'm going to give it all away
Find a job that pays
Some letters behind my name.

Somedays I'll be
Standing at a mirror looking in
Your face starts fading in
The feeling comes again.

I guess I'll always be
The losing side of you.
Your mismatched other shoe
Your after midnight blues.
Love is a mystery to me
A loser's dream.

These days
Are spent in hot desire to be the way I was
To ride the magic bus
To try and stay in touch.
Afraid
My face is just a memory to those I knew.
An influential clue
To what they have to lose.

I guess I'll always be
The losing side of you.
Your mismatched other shoe
Your after midnight blues.

Love is a mystery.
To me a distant scream.

Es cierto que nunca había leído nada como SIP... Me sorprendió que el autor fuera un hombre, la verdad (imaginaba que "Terry" significaría Theresa, o algo así)
Pero tengo una curiosidad: ¿realmente existe un grupo llamado Griffin silver? No he encontrado nada en la mula sobre él.
Un saludo

Buenas,

en un principio yo pensaba que también, pero después de buscar, y leer en la web de Terry Moore, llegué a la conclusión de que muy probablemente es un invento suyo.

Estoy ansiosa or que hagan el último volumen recopilatorio *^-^*
