Its all about forever
It's all about forever, that's what we crave. That sweet sugar, that food for our souls. We need it, it drives us like a hunger that burns in our aching core. We fear permanence, but what is the alternative? Nothing, no one, being alone? You might wait for it to be that moment, and the moment may never come. But if you leap before you know you have a place to land, isn't that frightening as well? But what if what you feared could have been it?; that head in the cloud, foot popping romance, the life you only dream of, the one you see in the movies? What if that cloud rolls by and you never got a chance to feel the rain? To dance in it, to shower in it, to let the it pour and drip on our lips let our tongue collect the droplets. "What if?" is the question, that churns us like butter until the end of eternity. "What if?", is the thing that will ask until we have reached oblivion. So now if the world has placed this moment in your arms, and you don't know if you

Zauberspiegel by DerFaulePoet, literature
Prinzessin, fürchtest du zu vergehen? Denn klar und deutlich kann ich sehen, dass du vor dem Leben fliehst bis du im Spiegel siehst, dass dir die Schönheit, die du so bitter vermisst, schon unwiederbringlich entglitten ist; und dein Wahn wird immer wilder, du hörst schon meine Stimme aus dem Silber. Ich bin gebettet auf Mörtel und Stein und tauche deine warme, weiche Haut in meinen Schein. Prinzessin, was sollen die Tränen? Sie fallen zwischen deinen goldenen Strähnen. So fragst du mich: Spieglein, wo wird meine Liebe sein? Echte Liebe gibt’s an keinem Ort, denn Liebe ist ein leeres Wort. Meine Worte klingen bitter, stechen wie Spiegelsplitter, doch verzagen musst du nicht, viel wertvoller als Liebe sind Ehre und Pflicht. Spieglein, warum bin ich nicht ewig jung geblieben? In Leid kann niemals echte Schönheit liegen. Habe den Mut, deine Schönheit geschehen zu lassen, denn echte Schönheit wird niemals verblassen. Mich hindert nichts daran, mein Wort zu ehren, ich bin
