northern downpour // panic! at the disco

You had asked me
“What did I do to deserve you?”
And I simply smiled
Telling you that it was a discussion
For another day


And that night
I wished that I had told you


That you were the one
Who hung the stars
And painted the sky
You guided the wind
And calmed the sea


That you were the one
Who grew dandelions
In your heart
And raised walls
Around them

That you were the one
Who taught the birds
Their captivating melodies
And created a symphony
For mother nature


That you were the one
Whose love was as deep as the ocean
As raging as the red flower
As wild as a hurricane
And as infinite
As the universe


That you were the one
Whose face is my favorite sight
Whose voice is my favorite sound
Whose lips are my favorite taste
And whose touch is my favorite feeling


That you were the one
Created by Grandmother Earth
And the waves became
Your golden tresses
And the soil became
The temple
That I worshiped


That you were the one
Who sheltered me
Within your open arms
And listened to me
With an open mind


That you were the one
Who saved me
From drowning in the abyss
Of my thoughts
And breathed life
Into my dreary lungs

—  A poem, for the one I cannot love

Nothing grinds my gears quite like people comparing Beauty and the Beast to Stockholm syndrome. The whole point of the 1991 film is that she doesn’t develop a friendship with the Beast until he learns to be a better person. AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, as soon as he tells her that she can leave, SHE DOES.

Silence is her favorite sound,
from the way her eyes lit up
when the smooth air
follows her around.
She chooses
her friends carefully,
knowing them
even more personally,
for she doesn’t want
to get attached so easily.
Fairy tales taught her
that soulmates does exist,
not only on books
she used to read,
and on movies that made
her heart beats.
He is a man
who showed her
how a knight
in shining armor—
an extraordinary prince
on reality looks like.
None of them
can ever tell,
how time manage
to push them
on a single situation
at an unexpected place.
And from that
very first time
the moment
their souls met,
two universes
stunningly collide,
with the stars celebrating
as they sprinkle
tiny lights and
glittered across
the once gloomy
night sky.

A fan musical of the book Carry On by Rainbow Rowell using songs from many musicals (and a few non-musical songs). Each song is annotated with a quote or reference to the book to demonstrate where in the book the song is taking place.
