There's a certain tone set
as the sky trades places with the clouds
as rainy nights turn to clear skies
throwing blue across the sky like a painter to their canvas
The clearest nights come from the rainiest days
and the best days follow the worst.

My friends could tear down an empire
With adventures built taller than castles
and friendships stronger than steel

I will never be enough
that's something I now see

I will never be enough
or the person you wanted me to be

I will never be enough
that's one place we'll agree

But I am the person
that I want to be

And I will always be enough
at least for me.

We add on layers
To protect ourselves
To shield from the outside
And as we grow so does the number of layers
Sometimes life gives us the tools to rip off our layers
and expose our core to those who we need to see them
sometimes we find the people we can be ourselves around

Finally taking off our layers.

"I don't know what to say"

says too much

I would rather you said nothing

His face
The sight brings a smile to yours
His eyes
You can stare into them forever
His lips
You wish you can kiss them
His hands
You wish you can intertwine them with yours
His mind
It intrigues you
His soul
You can love it for eternity
His heart
It doesn't belong to you

We climb stairs to reach the top
                                              There is a goal in it
                                    reaching the end
                            but sometimes it feels
                 like there is no end
        and the stairs will continue
until you can't climb anymore.
