When you fall in love,
Everything seems to gain a deeper meaning.
Like when a song plays on the radio,
That you listened to with them that one time.
Just hearing it,
Can bring back happy memories.
Or when a simple word or phrase
Pops up in a conversation,
Or in your head
That makes you smile upon hearing or thinking of it.
Even an item in a store
That you go into,
Not planning on buying anything at
That calls out your name
Because you know that they would love it.
Going to certain places,
Also brings back nostalgia.
People might get mad at you,
For being so focused on the one that you love.
They might criticize you,
For not focusing on your future instead.
But deep inside, you know that you are,
Because they are your future.
Everything that you do,
Is for them, and for you.
All of your decisions,
Come not without thinking of them,
And how it would affect them.
Because when you fall in love,
Everything gains a deeper meaning,
And it feels good.

I miss living near the beach
Whenever I would get upset,
It would only be a five-minute walk
To my place of tranquility
Hearing the waves crash upon the shore
Calmed me instantly
It was like the waves were washing over my soul

So little time I have
To do all that I want
Even though I’m relatively young,
I cannot help but think about
How limited my time on this planet is.
Much time is spent worrying,
Either about the past,
Or what is to come in the future.
If only there was a way to stop
Thinking about this-
It makes me go mad

I have a lot of problems
That seem to get pushed aside
Because I’m “smart enough”
Or I’m “able to go through this”
I’m tired of being told I can do it
I’m tired of being told
Because quite frankly,
I don’t think that it’ll be okay
My feelings are raging,
And one expects to quell them using
That mean absolutely nothing to me
I just want someone to resonate with me.
I just want someone that resonates with me.

There's more hate in me now than there ever has been before.
Why do I feel so heartbroken?
Maybe because,
Once upon a time,
I thought that I knew my way.
I thought that I knew my purpose.
I have spent so much time building myself up,
And the leviathan has knocked it all down.
My strength has withered away to nothingness,
My feelings are not even considered.
This leviathan,
Has hurt me so deep,
For the sake of love.

I'm desperate,
At this point,
Give me a sign.
What do I have to do,
To get what I want?
You care more about yourself than you do for me,
That much has been made apparent.
I am filled with a bitter, intense regret,
I feel like I have made the wrong choice.
I have spent so much time,
Getting entangled in your trap,
And now I fear I cannot escape.
How can one be with someone else,
Yet feel so, so alone?
I have yet to find the answer to this question,
That is incredibly relevant in my life.
All of the love that I have felt for you,
I feel it going rotten.

Life has been...
Rough, to say the least.
I feel lost,
I feel like I have no use.
I feel like this until...
I am holding you.
Staring into your eyes,
Nothing going on.
Just us,
Looking at each other,
In the near-darkness.
And I realize, my purpose,
Is to be here,
With you.
