Beautiful things come out of horrible situations. I know for a fact. Out of sadness you get a new found wisdom on how the world can look with a haze of gray clouds, how people can be senseless, how you can see the whole universe in a whole new way. And that may be hard to handle, hard to cope, hard to accept, but it is so damn beautiful if you really take the chance to realize. Out of anger, you can feel your heart beat race, with every beat it is shaking your whole being and not only the heavy steps you take. It is when you, your whole self and some power is telling you that you are alive. And that is amazing in every angle. Out of anything there is something in there that makes it incredible. Something that makes it shine. Whatever you feel is potent and it is such a blessing to be able to feel what you feel. You just have to think about it.

I see the face that once hovered over my own, breathing deep, body increasingly curious.
These years have made you a stranger to me, the mind I once fond of is now a mystery.
As I watch you across the way I remember the day we laid together on the floor with your hands on my stomach and my waist, holding me as if to make me stay still.
We didn't make it more or even share a simple kiss. You used to be my best friend. Now, you are just a boy across the way I wish I could know.
