In happier times

Together always, and also apart

Smiling on the outside, crying inside

Holding hands, mile high walls between us



In happier times

Joined by paper, by properties

By kids, by work, by bills,

By love, by hurt, by hate, by hurt



In happier times

Music throughout, wrong music but music

Watching tv, wrong shows, but together right?

Dinner together, one ate and one cooked cleaned served

Happier times??



And now – alone and yet not alone

Friends, family, strangers

Sometimes crying outside

But then .. smiling on the inside



No longer joined by paper, properties

Work, bills, love hurt hate hurt

No more bad music, no more wrestling

Dinner together – with kids and two goldfish

Finally –happier times

Nothing you said makes me happier
Not “I love you”
Not “I miss you”
Not the sweet words,
The secret language
You used with only
The girls filled with hate
Now I think, to this day
That nothing you say
Could ever make me happier

Nothing you said makes me happier
Not “Come over”
Not “Come closer”
Not the proofread lines,
Carefully exacted
For the time you just left
Me to wander, distracted
Alone in a crowd
We no longer interacted
That didn't make me happier

Nothing you said makes me happier
Not “We need a break”
Not “I'm moving away”
The looks that you gave
Or the way you berate,
Not even a whisper
Of lie and debate
Will make me happier
Than when you told me
“I'll be dead by forty.”

when we kissed there was a spark,
you kept my heart calm,
your smile was my art,
i was happier,

wondered about your scar,
i am broken and in parts,
remember when we watched the stars?
i was happier, way back with you,

ain't nobody hurt me like you do,
but i know nobody could love me like you,
promise i won't fade away, not because of you,
if you do find someone new,

because i was happier with you,
your sweet words echoing my mind,
and i will smile to hide all of my pain,
but you don't know that i was happier with only you,

baby, are you happier without me?
does that someone new kiss you like i did?
but if she leaves you like all the others,
just know i am waiting for you to come home to me.

She told something funny
You both smile so wide like ours
You look happier
You look her in the eye
As if she is the sweetest thing
you ever know, right at that moment
I know you deserve someone new
You look happier
You pinch the tip of her nose
And kiss her forehead
You are so deeply inlove
aren't you?
You look happier
Spending your life
Falling deeper inlove with her
You look happier
I'm happy too, seeing you smile
But during those time
I'm watching you from a far
As my tears falling freely on the ground
As I watched you falling to her
As my world fall apart
The man I love
Married a girl, and he's not mine anymore
While me
Dancing alone in silence
At the backyard where we first met
Those brown eyes, those boyish smile,
Those eyes that penetrate my soul
Those lips that never lies
The one who I cherished the most
Is the one who
Broke his own promises
I was happier when I'm with you
But the key word for us is
"Was"
Realization that we can't be together
That I can't be her
That you and I is over

Slow kisses turn into dust
It should be me, the one you praised
The one you kiss and the one you marry
I miss you so much, and even we're not
Together I still want you back
I want to hold you
But I can't
I'm dying
Not having you here
I can't move on
Sorry
Sorry for grammatical lapses anw good day peps!

the happier rabbit drenched in sweat
the language of his contorted face pulls at me
something approaching repentance in his fuzzy eyes
but trickster he plagiarizes puppy dog eyes to ****** his way free

the happier rabbit is a ***** of the profane tongue
and like a smooth jesus walking on the waters of verbal jive
he just walks your wallet like he's walking the dog
he's got nothing but fur but might as
well be wearing a brooks brothers three piece
and living bankers hours

the happier rabbit
making fast tracks for the dark woods
with the equivalent of a rolls royce and a roll 'o' dimes
living is easy in the forever summertime state
long as you got the endless supply of sheep
looking for greener pastures comin south for the winter
the happier rabbit lounges by the pool catchin a tan
sipping a long island ice tea
there may be something seriously wrong with us
but we are happy just the same
i just wish...for one moment...it could just be like it was supposed to be

I'm happier,
I promise.
I'm doing better,
okay?
You don't have to this,
please.
I'm sorry that I'm hurting,
and I know,
you are too.
But what I don't understand,
is what I mean to you.
You say I'm your best friend,
but you don't act like it.
That night we hung out,
you made me feel things again,
and as much as I hated that,
I loved it all the same.
I'm happier,
I promise.
Now that you're not sad,
even though,
it hurts me,
I love seeing you smile again.
I care about you,
in more ways than one.
I can't escape it,
I wish I could.
Believe me,
I wish I could.
I'm happier,
I promise.
Even though I'm lying,
I know it's what you want to hear,
so I'll just fake it.
When Ed Sheeran makes you fall for your best friend
Yes, bright the velvet lawn appears,
And fair the blooming bowers;
Yet blame me not—I view with tears,
This scene of light and flowers;
Strangers possess my native halls,
And tread my wonted ways;
Alas! no look, no voice recalls,
The Home of Happier Days.
The gay guitar is still in tune;
The greenhouse plants are rare;
Glad faces throng the wide saloon,
But none I love are there:
Oh ! give me friendship's cherished tone,
Give me affection's gaze;
Else my sad heart can never own
The Home of Happier Days.

You two seem happier than ever
When I saw you that night
She seemed very thankful
But still reserved
When I saw you that night
You were physically attached to her
But still reserved
Just hanging there
You were physically attached to her
But said nothing as I spoke
Just hanging there
As I talked
But said nothing as I spoke
Just kissing her on the neck
As I talked
She tried to ignore it
Just kissing her on the neck
And saying how you loved her
She tried to ignore it
As if this happened often
And saying how much you loved her
She didn't say anything back
As if this happened often
She just continued
She didn't say anything back
Just talked to me
She just continued
As if you were a tick
Just talked to me
I saw you hiding
As if you were a tick
Or a ninja
I saw you hiding
With a straight expression
Or a ninja
Like face
With a straight expression
You seemed you couldn't
Like face
Anything else
You seemed you couldn't
Be happier
Anything else
Meant less than her
Be happier
Because I
Meant less than  her
I was in those arms too
Because I
Am totally over you
I was in those arms too
But I couldn't be happier
Am totally over you
To me you're a lamp
But I couldn't be happier
Seeing you kiss my best friend
To me you're a lamp
If I'm into spotlights
Seeing you kiss my best friend
Makes  me happy
If I'm into spotlights
You're into shadows
Makes me happy
Cause she is the main thing
You're into shadows
Hiding behind her
Cause she is the main thing
You are just a purse
Hiding behind her
Taking care
You are just a purse
That someone could steal
Taking care
You treat her like a daughter
That someone could steal
Away from you
You treat her like a daughter
A princess
Away from you
Is unacceptable
A princess
In another castle
Is unacceptable
She has to be with you
In another castle
You have to be there too
She has to be with you
You never separate
You have to be there too
Whenever I  talk to her
You never separate
Even if we speak badly
Whenever I talk to her
I see your face
Even if we speak badly
Of things
I see your face
Against her
Of things
To imagine
Against her
Your hearts beat in time
To imagine
Life forever after
Your hearts beat in time
To a confusing metronome
Life forever after
Till you die
To a confusing metronome
I try and find a pattern
Till you die
But remain alive
I try and find a pattern
I find your past till-death promises
But remain alive
Just to make another
I find your past till-death promises
And I have a feeling you won't keep
Just to make another
And leave her hanging
And I have a feeling you won't keep
Up with all this
And leave her hanging
When she needs you most
Up with all this
Maybe I'm being a bad friend
When she needs you most
I can't be there
Maybe I'm being a bad friend
But that is a best friend
I can't be there
And I don't know if you can
But that is a best friend
To try my best
And I don't know if you can
Ever live up to this
To try my best
I promise I won't fail
Ever live up to this
I bet you can't
I promise I won't fail
And so do you
I bet you can't
Keep this promise
And so do you
You've done this before
I bet you can't
Remember
You've done this before
With the other girls
Remember
Their names
With the other girls
They always came to me
Their names
All on my phone
They always came to me
When you done goof
All on my phone
I learned what you did
When you done goof
I helped them
I learned what you did
And taught you to stop
I helped them
Rebuild their walls
And taught you to stop
Knocking them down so hard
Rebuild their walls
To learn to love again
Knocking them down so hard
They got battle scars
To learn to love again
After someone like you
They got battle scars
Another guy will heal
After someone like you
Took so many hearts
Another guy will heal
I can't believe you
Took so many hearts
Only to steal hers
I can't believe you
And your jar of hearts
Only to steal hers
And put it at the top
And your jar of hearts
Might spill over
And put it at the top
Of your list
Might spill over
And break again
Of your list
Of important things
And break again
She's at the tip
Of important things
You have in life
She's at the tip
But she might fall to the bottom
You have in life
One chance to live
But she might fall to the bottom
Die so young
One chance to live
Love
Die so young
Cause she lost her touch
Love
Kills you
Cause she lost her touch
You killed her nerves
Kills you
To see her so sad
You killed her nerves
You did this to her
To see her so sad
I hope I never do
You did this to her
It's your job to fix it
I hope I never do
Have to **** you
It's your job to fix it
Before I find out
Have to **** you
For breaking yet another heart
Before I find out
Run
For breaking yet another heart
It better not be hers
Run
Let her love you
It better not be hers
She seemed very thankful
Let her love you
You two look happier than ever.
Yep, two months now.  I'm so happy for her, but I don't trust him with her heart.

I would have taken the easy path
But that would leave no room for glory
I would have picked out a comfortable life
But that isn't God’s kind of story

I would have followed a prettier road
But missed the most beautiful way
I would have clung to familiar things
But lived out my days in the grey

I would have chosen what’s stable
But grown cold, apathetic and bored
I would have sought out earth’s riches
But lost all that in heaven is stored

I would have liked more successes
But not learned so quickly of grace
I would have seen myself praised more
But given up knowing God’s face

I would have tied all my loose ends
But not known it’s He Who brings peace
I would have wanted for happier times
But traded a joy that can’t cease

I would have opted for normal
But not tasted rare delicacies
I would have preferred a man’s love
But been robbed of Divine intimacy

He’s chosen for me the high road
More jagged, more narrow and steep
So now I must travel this difficult way
Ever knowing it leads to the deep

Now I must choose to cherish His path
And trust Him to walk with me there
Now I must hasten to take up my cross
The fellowship of His sufferings to share

For one day this life will be over
And all my afflictions will end
It is then I will see what all this is for
In my Bridegroom, my Savior, my Friend
~~~

"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
~ 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Thinking about the loves of the past,
All the loves that didn’t last.
All my loves of yesterday,
I wonder where they are today,
The close moments that we shared,
The loving words that said we cared.
I think about the ones that slipped on by,
I sit by myself and I wonder why,
One day they‘re here and next they‘re gone,
I understand that life goes on,
But still I wonder if it was meant to be,
Are they happier without me?

And if we ever meet again,
Could the passion be the same?
Would the old fires start to burn?
Could loving thoughts ever return?
Or are unspoken words left unsaid,
Should the past be left for dead?
Are they happier in their new life,
Watching the kids, being a wife?
I have to realize the die is cast,
Nothing can ever change the past,
But still I wonder if it was meant to be,
Are they happier without me?

My body is my body
I will do whatever I want
I will pierce whatever I want
I will get a tattoo where ever I want

I will do anything I want with my body if I please
Body confidence is the best thing
You start to feel better about yourself
And you are happier with yourself
With body confidence you will be happier

— The End —
