You get what you are given, you only receive to yourself what you deserve.

im just glad you told me you needed one
so ill wait for you.

There are different kinds of fragility
One that bends,
And one that breaks

Step on a flower,
It withers

Step on a bomb
It explodes
Be careful with both,
a bomb may be dressed as a flower,
but you won't know until it has blown

Once you let some random human being  into your life just because your heart beats faster when you look them in the eyes, you should accept the fact that one day theyโ€™ll try so hard to get into the very center of your life and then .. set it on fire.

I love you
even my heart breaks.
I love you
even you don't love me.
I love you
until someone reaches the earth's core.
I just love you my love
p.s I don't know, I'm just bored because of this quarantine

I wish I was clueless again,
that I could go back,

go back to a time when it didnโ€™t hurt,
a time that wasnโ€™t so black

I wish I could see the colours
of the sun and sky at day

now, everything is so dull,
every colour I see is grey

I wish I didnโ€™t know,
that rejection hurts so much

I wish I didnโ€™t know
the strength of coldness clutch

I wish I didnโ€™t know,
that a broken heart breaks you

I wish I didnโ€™t know
but sadly, now I do.
Wouldn't it be nice to return to when life was easy?
then again... was it ever?
The clock sounds lost moments with a snickering tick-tock.

As the pages of the still and empty calendar gather dust and wilted pages.

So much time, however, no one to **** such withโ€ฆ

Insanity is the money paid for lifeโ€™s burdens as wages.

The mind drifts back to memories of loves that have have come and that have gone.

The empty rooms echo with old songs that you play to relive such cherished moments

To keep the feeling alive

Until your heart forgets how to receive or find love and it is worn out to the bone.

Beating so hard for that missed someone.

Beating in excitement for that fresh look from someone you adorre

Quickly, you must catch her, before she disappears out the momentโ€™s doors.

Love seems so hard to find.

Women you feel are interested in

Failing to see you thereโ€ฆholding open a kind door

To open your soul to them

Even if the relationship never lasts past one tick of the clock

At least you stood tall and showed a rainbow of warm colors

As she disappears on the arm of another

A tear fills the eye for one short second

Then you disappear within the moment and you cheer on your victorious and beloved brother.
