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

Intimacy hits
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,
I realized

How scared I was not to be alone
But to be left in solitude

and without a doubt
I stopped

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
    Beautiful Faces
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
    only 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
It's either

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

Either way

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
