no one knows how deep our scars run and sometimes not even we do until someone comes and traces the marks and to our horror, the wounds open up again too soon
far sooner than we were prepared to staunch the flow of not just blood, but memories and shame the very ones that kept us scarred and broken, long after we’ve forgotten their names
but for your words and the sound of your voice, this time something was different for together with the stigma and the blame that may have accompanied them, there, too, was redemption
an acceptance that none of it was my fault or my own doing, nothing i deserved or asked for. and i can finally move on because you saw something i long forgot, that i am worthy and i am worth fighting for.
no more questioning. no more doubts. believe me when i say that you are the one for me, or do i need to shout it out just so you’ll know how much you mean to me, for you are my sun, my moon, my stars and right next to you is where i yearn to be through hell or high water, near or far.
tell me the things you dream of when no one is looking whisper them in my ear so only i can hear about the things i do that make your heart go a-flutter tell me everything before this moment between us disappears
for nothing can last forever not even the moments we treasure inside our hearts believing them safe from envious prying eyes who want nothing more but to pick our love apart
and fling everything we once shared in the cold and dank wind laugh in our faces and say, oh those poor souls so tell me now those secrets you’ve long kept hidden before they rip apart two hearts that were once fully whole
catch yourself, the little girl said,
before you fall too far and too deep
for those feelings you feel are nothing more
but a quick high for those who fall asleep
and lose themselves in their dreams
of love, passion, and utter devotion,
a promise that he's true only to you
when you know too well
it's but a hopeless notion
for his heart belongs to someone else
and you knew that from the start
so catch yourself before you fall deeper
and lose what little is left of your lonely heart
but should you continue to play,
know what waits for you in the end.
dreams shattered, hearts broken,
and that emptiness that no words from any man
can ever mend
there’s nothing sexier than the honesty you bring to the table as to what you can give me and what you cannot, or where the boundaries between us lie so nothing we do is an afterthought. for what we have is the raw deal. although complicated, what we have is real.
days like this are made for smiling, giggling at the sound of your voice, the words you say making me happy, giddy, your messages of hope rising above the noise of a world that wants only to distract me from all the things that don’t matter in the end for the most precious thing right now is the sight of your soulful eyes the moment we stop to pretend that what we have is temporary, fleeting, and gone too soon for you are more than a wish I whispered upon a falling star. you are my sun and i, your moon.
