"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but my the number of moments that take our breath away."


A tear rolls down my cheek
As I think about
How no matter how many
Good times there are with you,
I'll just get hurt in the end

I cry when I write this
Because I know it's true
And a sad song is playing
Reminding me of what happens
When love dies out

I can't help but weep in my hands
As I say the words out loud
The words that tell the truth

There's a tear on this page
Because even if love is wonderful
While it lasts,
Everything has an end
And no one lives forever

And now tears are racing down
As I delete all your texts
So I can't focus on the good things
And then I won't be destroyed
When they only turn out worse


The author's comments:
written when i liked a guy, and realized, that someone would always get hurt in the end, somehow. even if you stay together with someone your whole life, they're still going to die in the end. I know that's very pessimistic but those were my thoughts when writing this
