i don't often share my hobbies with friends, you see
I'm afraid of shame.
I'm afraid no one will look at me the same.
Because I'm overreacting, and that's all i do,
And I know that they're right-
I know that they're right.
So I ignore it when my heart's set ablaze
Because all i ever seem to get is half-hearted praise...

And all I can hope for is to be the same.
Losing my desire to strive for the best
No one can hurt me if I never speak
yikes.... so anywaysss we're back (2 years later) and this is my online melodramatic rant because god knows i could never say this to anyone in person lol.

Come with me, my friend
Come ride with me
Through the uphill of wonder
Down the downhill of doubt
Come on, don't stop now
We have so much farther to travel
Don't give up now
We'll go up the blissful twist of friends
Bravely make it through the loop of love
What are you waiting for?
Oh no, this downhill will be hard to bear
But we'll make it through
Come on, are you ready?

Cursed from yonder to go on,
Forever wandering on and on.

They say
"Never give up".
But how can I,
If the world has given up on me?
Funny how one sentence changed my entire life,
Spun my world upside down with a bang
Twirled the universe on its finger
Guess what it was?
I'm sorry.
Now I stand with my heart in a million pieces,
Limbs broken at impossible angles,
I'm beautifully broken...
You should have known that I would,
If I could,
When you stopped catching me,
As I fell for you...

To others, it's words on paper
To others,it's typed lines
To us?
To us,it's our whole heart
Poured out onto that page
To us, it's our whole life
In those few stanzas
To us, it's our words in a cage
Finally let out
Writing is magic to us.

Goodbye, my friend
Hold on tight
Don't cry
I'll see you again one night
Now close your eyes
Don't worry, now
I'll always remember
How you caught me before I fell
How you made me better as well
Now, just let go
And know
I love you.
Don't mind my horrible rhyming skills.

Notes drift through the air
Everything stops to listen
The violin bow drifts
Through dimensions of music
Carving a note into the earth
Miles away,
Fingers move across a keyboard
Creating magic
Real magic
Through music
Next to her
A gentle voice begins to sing
Creating a melody
Music travels everywhere
It's real magic
To those who can
