Thank you for always answering my now probably creepy daily "asks", Mike! Is it okay if I call you Mike? It's so amazing to read what you have to say now that it's directed to me and my curious musings. I hope you fall (all in) in love again.. Or if you already are.. Then please don't ever stop what you're doing now. Thanks for making this world a nicer place. PS If you ever get stabbed, in the heart or whatnot, my medical assistance is always free for you. ;)

Once! You've fallen in love ONCE and look at the person you've turned out to be. It's true though.. If you knew then what you know now, maybe it would've "worked out" and the Joyeuse wouldn't have been pushed through all the blood-filled chambers of your hungry heart. But darling,look at you now. Look at the way you've turned that massacre into something so painfully beautiful. It's like flowers grew out of the stab wounds she left,leaving gardens of scars and bruises you're not ashamed to hide.

The Darkest Ashes (From My Broken Body)

And I have declared that feelings are first
I hope you pay attention to what matters
As with the small things will never kiss you
And a fool will never see you through

If my body approves and my kiss a foresight of fate
With all the falling petals
That came from the flowers I sent
There’s no wisdom greater than
My heart’s beating torment

I have declared that feelings are for me and you
And if you decide to not love me so I will not love you
For everyday you do is another day I have forgotten you

I have reached up to the moon
The dead stars and the curious black crow
I have put my hand through fire
And saw the darkest ashes
From my broken body

And as far as I can reach to the unknown
I am carried by the dashing aching wind
Feeling your flaccid hands that brings me back to you

And here I am again curious by your heart’s decay
Of not loving me anymore but you insist I should stay
And little by little I will wander away

You're welcome, Michael :) now it makes me wonder.. Just how much heartbreak could a person ever go through to be able to write as beautifully as you do? How many times have you ever fallen in and out of love? I know this is cruel to say, or even think, but I'm glad you've had your heart broken just enough (or too much) because all of it led to all of THIS: your poetry, you words. <3
You make it to the birthday party and you don’t tell her what has happened. You’re exhausted, you just say you had a busy day at work, she will smile and she will never know what extent you went through to make it perfect for her.
Excerpt from First Impressions By Michael Daaboul
Don’t capture my heart when you don’t want to keep it. Don’t consume my mind when I’m not the one consuming you. I don’t want to think about you, when I’m not the one you think about. Don’t let me fall, if you’re not holding my hands, falling with me. Don’t let me, if I’m not with you.

I don’t know anymore. It’s like I’m dreaming, and it’s like I am waking up from one. I obsess so much over you, I spent years pondering while you lived your life. All my thoughts, my feelings and ideas of you in a constant rewind inside of my mind. That’s all you are. A sequence that’s played over and over driving me mad. Exposing unhealthy emotions, ridiculous trickery of a fake fairytale. That’s all you are, inside of my mind; you’re make believe.

It’s always the little things that no one gets to see.

When you have run out of credit you drive down to the petrol station in your boxers to recharge your mobile phone to send a happy birthday message just before it hits midnight.

Excerpt from First Impressions By Michael Daaboul
What if I can’t find you when you disappear? What will I do when my wounds are cut through? Will I become needy; will I become poor to you? If I can’t get over you, am I desperate? Is it right to say I lost hope, when hope was you? Believe me, it’s not that I can’t find someone else, that someone else is not you. If you were to say that what I was to you was magic, when did you see that it was all an illusion? When I was next to you? When I fell for you?

I would refuse to let you walk with me on a calm day when it’s not raining. That’s not emotion. I want the winds raging like they do on failed stars. I don’t want to walk on soft ground or straight roads; I want them hard, winding and steep. I don’t want to talk to you, I want to sing a melodic tune that moves the sea at night and brings lost mermaids to the shore. We have been taught to fear the storm, as our hearts run dry, we embrace the calm and become empty.
