When you feel too safe, when everything is secure, sometimes you forget about the danger. You become too comfortable and stop seeing the fire that once burned inside of you. Always remember. Always keep the fires burning. If the flame inside you starts to flicker, enclose it with both your hands and keep it warm. A fire that’s looked after will grow into a firestorm, nurture it and it will keep you away from peril and keep you warm. A fire that has died is engulfed in darkness and strangled by the cold to ever come back.

It’s better to show more than to say more. It’s better to say things in action than to speak of worlds you couldn’t reach that are seldom travelled. Too often lies find shelter in aspiring words but have trouble thriving when you show what you mean. It’s better for me to kiss you, than to talk about kissing you. Sometimes, words are not enough to show how you truly feel. You cannot expect words to carry a palpating heart.

It’s easy for me to catch you stabbing my heart when I look at you. I fear what you might do behind me, where I can’t see. It’s hard when your eyes can’t see that far, it’s harder when you have taken aim and fired an arrow straight for my heart that has pierced my back first. You see, this is why I need to trust you before we can continue, without trust, we’re nothing.

Love her, don’t use her. Don’t kiss her if you don’t mean it. When she cries, hold her. You know what to do, don’t play games, don’t be that person, the world doesn’t need anymore players. The world needs more raw emotion, magic, and it needs people to believe again. Do you really want to be that person for the rest of your life, always playing games? It won’t be cool or funny anymore when you’re in your late forties playing a kid’s game. Don’t give her false hope, when you don’t want to be with her.

We’re not so different. I think we all want to live a long life, be happy and healthy. We’re all striving for the ultimate goal, and I don’t understand why we can’t work together. Too busy fighting the wrong fight.

Where can I go, now that I know you exist? Before, I was so far from where I wanted to be and now, I’m as close to what I want that I have ever been. I’m worried, I’m not going to hide it, that I feel we’ll get so lost within our own fairytale magic that we might disappear. For what it’s worth, I hope you disappear with me and promise me you won’t leave me behind.

I don’t want you to change. I like you the way you are because everything you are is beautiful and everyone is taking notice. They can see the rainbow that appears after you leave, they see the light when you smile and you heal broken hearts with your kindness.

I think I have unrealistic expectations of what love should be and how you treat each other. I might be falling in love with the idea; it’s kind of like falling in love with yourself, but projecting a different image to confuse you so you don’t know any better. I don’t like that. It’s hard not to like it, but my daydreaming is consuming me to the point it might be damaging. I’m not sure if I should let go. I don’t know what’s worse, letting you go or loving you.
