As a person who hates getting left behind, I think about leaving too much. I always wanted to leave everyone and everything behind. But recently I have been wanting to stay. And I’m afraid that I might stay for the wrong reasons.
—  i understand why everyone left now. and it’s too late
I’d like to tell you everything that’s on my mind
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to do so without the risk
I’d tell you about how your smile has crawled through my veins
That your voice sits in my ears
And at night you’re in my dreams
I’d like to tell you everything that’s consuming my thoughts
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to do so without the nerves
I’d tell you about how your eyes are the only thing in my sight
That your laugh is all I hear
But when I wake up you’re not here

“He shrank from hearing Margaret’s very name mentioned; he, while he blamed her - while he as jealous of her - while he renounced her - he loved her sorely, in spite of himself. He dreamt of her; he dreamt she came dancing towards him with outspread arms, and with a lightness and gaiety which made him loathe her, even while it allured him. …”

Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South

I want to be your favorite song that you kept on your phone playlist and being played on repeat. I will be the song your lips sing. I will create peace in the middle of your nightmares. Out of the blue my words are the one you tell everyone.I will be your wake up call and lullaby at the same time. Be on your head wandering in the secret paradise you hide, touching the wildest day dreams, dancing on the alluring imaginations.  BUT I’m not your favorite song. You hated the melody, the rhythm, the harmony and every pieces of music I got. I was being stock and skipped. So if I can’t be your favorite song I’ll just write you a song with the words I want you to live with, with the feelings I kept on my playlist. I’ll hide some clues behind this song in blues. So, please grab you guitar and sing this song for me.

How do you let go of the person you’re in love with?
