They were both
            strangely attached
            to each other,







In arms length,
            nothing more, nothing less.

There's a limit to your love  |  There's no limit to my love
Like a waterfall in slow motion  |  Like the floodwaters in motion, or
Like a map with no ocean  |  A vast and placid ocean
There's a limit to your love  |  There's no limit to my love
Your love, your love, your love  |  My love, my love, my love

There's a limit to your care  |  There's a limit to your care
So carelessly there, is it truth or dare  |  I thought it was there, is it truth or dare
There's a limit to your care  |  There's a limit to your care
There's a limit to your love  |  There's no limit to my love
Like a waterfall in slow motion  |  Like the tidewater in motion
Like a map with no ocean  |  Adrift on this calm ocean
There's a limit to your love  |  There's no limit to my love
Your love, your love, your love  |  My love, my love, my love

There's a limit to your love  |  There's no limit to my love
So carelessly there, is it truth or dare  |  You had it for years, these are my worst fears
There's a limit to your care  |  There's a limit to your care

Modification of James Blake's song.  Needed a retort from the other side.

don't look forward
don't look behind
don't dwell on things
and don't be blind
stop to think
but don't get stuck in your mind
use necessary force
but don't become unrefined
find a route
but make sure you are not confined
know your limits
so you don't find yourself disinclined
don't blame yourself
especially if you find yourself inevitably intertwined
and most of all
find time to unwind

just a couple tips for life (-:

Going through a life filled with pain,
Thought Being born in this life was a shame,
In the making it was love I always wanted from my family
and friends and a girl to call my name,
cut a human being off like a speeding limit,
Only to be pulled over with a speeding ticket,
learning to do right in an economy that doesn't care
about your well-being, or your soul and spirit,
You were in it,
honorable mention,
linked up all your limits,
and the feelings, well,
they just left and did some feral shifting,
Stuck in a dark fantasy or maybe a death stranding,
i was here from the beginning and when you took your last standing,
you were,
misunderstood in a world full of impurity,
lived for the love of another in this monstrosity,
serve a near purpose for people you'd die for in eternity.

I had to drive through NE Colorado and it was a real struggle. So boring. My best friend and I played I spy but it was a very boring and easy game.

We were higher above the entire planet,
And maybe you are afraid of heights.
I tried to conserve the relationship,
But so scared you jumped off it..
Come, hold my hand again,
Why scared of the pain...
Come where sky is not the limit.

looking around seeking help,

seeing nothing but shadow below your feet,

trying to move another step, but being strong has its limits,

if i could just stay still for a moment, without worrying about not achieving,

but tis not something i afford to take.

A ring is round
and has no end.
It has no sharp edges.
Nor will it bend.
Love is precious.
It has no limit.
You can reach the top.
And still can't beat it.
Your high is your addiction.
Feeling so confused.
Is it real or is it fiction.
Can you handle my
love affection.
Your heart feels my
soul connection.

Inspired by The Lord of the Rings.
Love that movie.

It is a road less traveled yet even a
long abandoned pathway has to end.
As I tried to slowly raise my foot off the ground, I caught my breath in desperation to pause the moment
only to find out that time is a moving picture playing continuously without mercy.

There will be this one fascinating thing which will come to take over most of who you are only to pass,
Fluttering its wings to an escape,
Dissolving into air.
I try, withstanding all my will to resist, to anticipate the arrival of the dark reel of film where the closing credits will soon roll in.

My body shivers as I wish to preserve the remaining last few pages,
But shivering might break my bones and I know
That it is a terrible, torturous thing
To want someone who wants someone else.

Everybody says "It's your life, take control of it."
Yes, quite indeed it's my life
And naturally, the controls comes with limitations
I keep falling back into bad habits
And each time I fall in I only get worser
"But Chalsey, you shouldn't let life limit you."
Limit me?
Well, I don't know how much of me there is.
Maybe this is all anyone gets
Maybe there isn't much more to me
Maybe I am at my limit

I think I'm pretty close to my limit.
