the first time i heard the words "greater than the sum of its parts" my mind drifted to you, of course because of your shattered soul and misplaced mind always too much or not enough of everything. but soon the branches starting tap tap tapping at my window, owls waking me up to whisper your secrets in my ears. the first time you looked at me with your cerulean eyes and made me a promise you soon broke, i eagerly forgave you, for i could not resist the sugar trickling off your words. then it happened a second time, a third a fourth a fifth and now, i can't remember what it's like for you to actually make promises you'll keep. the owls visited me last night and with their words, it was the first time i thought that maybe your whole is less than the sum of your parts.
love this quote "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts" also experimenting with different writing prompts which is why some of my titles are like this
