She laughed even when she didn’t want to. She didn’t cry even if she wanted to.
She decided to give everything up for you. Her plans, her preferences, her loyalties. She could be happy any which way. So why not be happy for making you happy.
She didn’t ask for much. But then again, it never occurred to her to do so. She didn’t want things to be different. She didn’t want you to be different.
But you decided it wasn’t enough. She was exactly what you had dreamed of, but she had to be exactly like you had dreamed. To sculpt her into that goddess of your dreams, that was all you wanted. Without realizing that dreams flit away the moment once you awaken from your slumber; but by then, it was too late.
You had let her go.
And she, the creature of sacrifice, the goddess from your dreams, decided you were right. Once again.
So she didn’t even look back once. And you – you let her go.
Inspired by the lyrics of “You Let Her Go – Passenger”
“Will leave you in the morning
But find you in the day”
Then stay through the night
As you stare at the ceiling
These thoughts of me
A darkness deep
With no ray of light
Nobody to rely on
Nothing else to think of
Except these thoughts of me
All our time together
What could have been
But all that we had
Is all that you threw away
Except these thoughts of me.
No blood in your veins
No taste in your mouth
Everything will break
Everything will be lost
Except these thoughts of me.
Inspired from the song “In My Veins” by Andrew Belle
I am not here. This isn’t happening.
If only this spell would work. If only I could disappear forever. But I have lost my magic.
Just like I have lost my way.
Will you love me since I’m neither young nor beautiful?
Will you love me since all I have is my aching soul?
I know you won’t.
Because you don’t.
When there’s nowhere left to run? It’s time to stop hiding. It’s time to stop running.
It’s time to face the music.
No more questioning. No more denying. No more fighting. Just acceptance.
And taking the reins.
The Fray ask: “Where did I go wrong?”
Just take a minute to think on the following three simple steps.
1. Don’t speed up if the light changes from green to yellow. It’s okay to wait one more minute.
2. Use your car’s indicators when turning. You’ve already paid for them, might as well use them.
3. Don’t overtake just because you get an ego boost from being one car ahead.
That life you save? Yeah, that might just be your own!
So I must ask: will you walk around this old and empty house with me? Will you hold my hand?
Because then, the house won’t be empty anymore. Because then, my life wouldn’t be empty either. And old doesn’t matter. Pish! It could be crumbling around me for all I care.
As long as you’re next to me.
And maybe, just maybe, we could grow old together like this house?
And we can talk some little talks while we walk around the old and empty house. No more voices. No more mind tricks.
Just peace. And love. And a dash of happy. Lots of us.
So, will you walk around this old and empty house with me, please?
