No need to thank me.
I mean, what are bullies for?

If not to force you
to face the unpalatable.
To confront you
with the cruelest kindness.

To unrelent with unfair truth
leaving you no choice,
but to fight for your life
and strengthen your defence.

What are best bullies for?
But to boost the beast
for when he's needed.

No need to thank me.
You'd do the same for me.
You need tough friends sometimes.

you placed a crown
upon my head
making me feel
like i was the queen
of your castles
little did i know
they were made
of nothing but sand
then the tide crashed in
and swept them away
hushed promises
forgotten by morning.
- my kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder.
i never wanted to fight
it never makes a difference
it never fixed my problems
i never bought into existence

but then we met
and for while there i thought i saw a reason
or felt purpose or sensed a future
yet never came to that season

and now you're fading
faster than i can delude myself
into fighting for what's left
or asking for your help

i never wanted to fight
and i don't think we can change what's coming
i love you and i wanted it to work
but sometimes all you've done is just for nothing

we lost
Deep within blue eyes
I see a constellation
I'll find nowhere else

I burned your letters
and finally
felt the warmth of your words.
I'm sitting here
on the darkest night
when a poem comes
and says, "stay there",
and silence will be your friend.
Let's pretend
to know each other
even though
we never remember
faces like the people
we once loved.
I'll say this
and everything you hate
shut up.
You are victorious
over all solitude.

As time passed by,
I've finally realized.
That you'll never be mine,
That everything we had,
Needed to be ended up.

I have to forget you,
You, that i love so much,
You, that i thought "my one less lonely boy."
You, that give me joy and happiness,
You, that brought color and symphony into my life.

Now that it came to an end,
I'll forget everything about you,
Everything about us,
Everything we used to do.
All the laughter and pain,
Troubles and triumph,
And all of the silly things we sometimes do.

And now is the time.
Time for me to let you go,
My BESTFRIEND, that i care  for,
My BESTFRIEND, that i fell for,
And my BESTFRIEND that i love so.
'Cause now,
You were just Somebody that i used to know.
this is for you, hoping that one day, you'll read this, and realize how important you were in my life, and for you to know how lost i felt when we parted.
thank you so much for everything.
I will send flowers
or a plane
if that’s what it takes
just come home
for another minute
