It was like an aphrodisiac
How you stir your tea and gaze into my eyes
I was love struck
Like a flow of electricity ran through my veins
And our eyes connect like constellations in the sky
And yet my father said,
When my mother passed
If you would ever love
Know you will lose it all at once
And for a moment,
How scared I was not to be alone
But to be left in solitude
and without a doubt
This won't be the start of a happily ever after
So I'll be the side character
Scared of losing the war when it hasn't already happen, remember to try to win against all odds cause regret will be the only choice odft
It was a tenacity
She was emptying her bowl of pasta
As he looks unsatisfied
At what exactly?
The dim lights of the restaurant
Or his formal attire of
perfect fitted suit and trousers
Or could it be
The discontented taste of wine
or perhaps his unfinished steak
But what baffles her was
He found everything menial
A display in the trophy section
Just a casual glance in the art gallery
She was just something
He just found aesthetic
When they only wanted the thought of having you, but never actually loving you.
Love was never between
Love was between
The ugly experiences
Love was never about
How happy you were
Love was about
How sad you can be without them
Love shouldn't be
Love should be
Love is bound to nothing perfect
Ageless with wrinkles
Love is bound to flaws
And that's the uniqueness
Love varies in different people
In different ways
Of showing " I love you"
This is how I view love.
Soon the world will know
What's hiding behind every closed door
The smiles that weren't true
The lies of "I love you"
How everyone would say "I'm fine"
Only to be left behind
But the truth is you'll never really dare
Once they are broken you will then
You will start to care
Why do we let things be when we know those who need help.
You were chaotic
Like the ocean's rage on a stormy night
You were also harmonic
Like how birds synchronize in flight
You were silent
Like how a butterfly would flap it's wings in air
You were deafening as well
Like a how bomb would explode and shatter my ears
You were lonely
Like how your anxiety creeps in when you're at a party
You were friendly
Like how everyone looks at you brightly
You were everything I never would've asked
You were also everything I would've wanted
You were Mine
And I was Yours
You destroyed me,
Like how you hugged my depression away
You built me,
Like how your smile makes my day
You were what I had prayed for
And I'm thankful that I did.
I asked of no name but I had wished so what was given I must cherish
"You lied to me"
"Why did I trust you?"
He looked in my eyes,
Those ocean shores began to become waves I've never seen before
His voice was a sound my ears never heard but was familiar like something from the past.
He answered. "You knew me.
And you didn't"
Two reasons someone would do treason, You knew them, or you didn't
Our hearts are
that's why our ribs are cages
Our hearts are
G O L D E N
that's why we protect it with our chest
We should never let it go.
We release a beast
We lose a treasure
It's never a win a win with your heart locked forever... rather an all for nothing chance
