I wish reincarnation was true
So this wasn't the last version of you
You'd be born with different eyes
But have the same soul that never lies

See the colour of your hair will change
But that's just like you anyway
And we might be different in age
But we'd be the same as yesterday

To some yesterday isn't a lot of time
But you were in so many yesterday's of mine
I lost one of my best friends earlier this year and I still can't believe that she's gone... All I wish is that we had more time.

Understanding the stars to your galaxies
Made of past and future complexities
Is the path we took made of possibility
Which ended in us walking separately

Though we're broken and bruised feeling further apart
With moments that'll never silence my heart
I still look for you in the ocean of people
But I know it's your stars that'll only show

Though I won't forget the tune you played
When you tugged at my heartstrings
You brought the music back with memories we made
When you tugged at my heartstrings

Seeing shimmers of blue starting back at you
A reflection I will never unsee
With feilds of gold glowing in the dark
I hope they'll remind you of me

Building moments created by the smallest of things

It's been months since I was by your side
But love is a feeling that no one can hide
I miss the smile that you gifted me with
But your smile has become something of a myth

I still remember the ear to ear grins we shared
And all the emotions that left me so scared
To think that I thought we could be something
Has made me begin to wonder about everything

To all that have felt one sided love

I played games when we never knew each other
The me who I thought I was, would now stutter
I didn't know what it felt like to fall for someone
I always thought that they'd hear my story and run

But then you didn't at first. You held my hand
You took me to a happy never never land
You said my I'm okay could become truthful
But that opinion soon became neutral.

Where the games were once fun for you
It soon became too much for you too
You never thought you'd have to save a life
You backed away to save yourself the strife.

I've been found out on all the games I've played
Each one was just another brick I've laid
To build my walls higher for my own safety
I tried to lock them away but you found the key

Was I meant to understand the repercussions
That each turn would lead to these discussions
That with every act i once did would undoubtedly
Lead to the moment where we're no longer a we

The past shouldn't dictate our future of possibilities.

I've been roaming in shallow waters
Left my hollow footprints behind
Tip toed on the edge of the deep end
Afraid, afraid of sinking

Holding my breath in too tight tonight
Slipped off the edge, can't go back
The water's holding me far too close
Not letting my feet touch the ground

My thoughts have cease to exist
Not a single flash of life came to be
Nobody said that it would end like this
Looks like I'm not apart of your history

My breathes are scattered and alone
Reaching out for anyone's hand
Because I don't think I can
My feet don't want to touch this land
The past is a place my mind often dwells in... 2019 will be a year that I look ahead with the past pushing me toward my dreams rather than holding me back

You say I told a lie about last May
And if that's what you think
I guess there's not much to say
I'll untie the anchor, let it sink

Go to a place where you'd love me
Somewhere my truths aren't lies
Disappear so I can no longer see
These heartbreaking replies

No more attention seeking
That you felt I was up to
No more having this feeling
Of my heart ripped in two

I don't want to remember this
I only want the good moments
When you were proud
You even said it out loud

Smiles locked away behind doors
Tip tapping of feet upon the floors
A closed up room for two souls
A love seen only through keyholes

Laughter heard through the walls
As two hearts tumble down the halls
A slight change to the pace of my pulse
And an emotional reaction of convulse

I realize that my heart has speed up
My mind can't seem to shut up
Not sure if you and I are a thing
Or is this just a little something something?

- E.A.F
A connection is formed, but to what degree? We'll just have to wait and see...
