Only said things when she HAD to.
She never had to say much really.
There wasn't really anything
She needed to say.
Until that idiot ruined her life.
He was an extrovert.
Living off adrenaline
Never running out of things to say
Always knowing exactly what to say.
He was just like that.
Meeting her, he never knew what to say.
On a school day,
She was reading.
He was hiding.
You don't want to know why.
The extrovert decides to grab the introvert
And drag her off.
Curious of why she wasn't reacting.
She was more curious of why
He was talking to her.
Day after day
They grew closer
His mind started only being for her.
Her heart started only being for him.
Where she was quiet,
He was lively.
Where she was calm,

I start to rust.
Seeing your face,
I'm blinded by dust.
I can't stop starring,
There's too much beauty.
You claim you're ugly,
Which I cannot see.
Hearing your voice,
Is like a chime.
I'd give you my world,
On the drop of a dime.
Having you in my arms,
Makes us the perfect two.
They claim I'll leave you,
Which I'll never do.
When I say it,
It's always true.
What I mean,
Is I love you.

swollen and creaking as

cracking in the heat. still as a statue,

Thing about love.
I'm just going to
Walk over and be lonely.
Cause yep, that's my life.
But love is confusing.
Relationships are confusing.
Everything is generally confusing.
But you know that's how it is.
There's liking and then loving.
Both of which
Are very different.
There's always wondering
What they think of you
If they think of you as often
As you think of them.
Do they notice the small things
And how you can't help but notice
The small things about them.
And then you're just lost
Because you can't find
One thing you love most about them
Because you love everything.
If you're that in love,
You'll feel different.
You'll know it.
Sometimes they end,
And you're broken.
But it's unavoidable.
And we move on.
Love isn't always where,
We expect it to be.

and i’m resting my head on your chest
as we stare into the infinite abyss above us
that the world’s been trying
to contain in a marble for so long
and i’m listening to your heart drum
just like it was designed to
even if you sometimes wish
its beating was something you could decide
to stop completely.
and it’s then that i realize
that what we have is finite
including the number of beats in your chest
and the number of moments
between here and the end
but i’m not worried about how it’ll end,
i’m worried about what i’m going to do
with all of the moments in between,
if they’ll even matter,
and, of course, if they contain you.

As I promise I'll never be too far
We'll always be safe in the hands of Love
But I know we won't be able to ever tame the dove
Capture all the warmth as we stand so cold

I'll save these memories through my fire

Down the bridge and through the crowd
Come with me to find a quiet place
So we can finally be safe in our space

Even the stars couldn't describe him
As darkness is so bleak
Like a phantom in disguise
Who comes out at night
But with his shiny eyes
He's so bright
Gazing into his soul
In the endless sea,
Makes my heart pounding
Through the infinite breeze
And gentle touch,
Are those things I like him
What could this be?
What does this mean?
What is this cupid arrow that
Has struck my chest
Is this arrow meant
For me and him
Or is this whole thing
Just a dream?
But does this really mean
In love with him?

louder than cannons from rooftops
