"Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can't, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it." Robert Frost

An empty heart struggling to beat in my chest
A mind quickly returning to the thoughts of old habits
Cold blood running through my veins
Never for long though
When it drops slowly on the pure white snow

I repeat the same process constantly
Picking up the same little pieces off the ground
Forcing them together so I seem whole
I never thought I would see the sun again
Doomed to always faking a smile

Then I met you
The clouds cleared
A weight was lifted off of my shoulders
For once I didn’t fake a smile
When I took a breath it didn’t hurt

You hold me
But not like I’m broken but like someone that is capable of being fixed
I look into your eyes and I know that right here with you is where I belong
You’re the light in my world that I’ve been waiting for
The wait is finally over

The author's comments:
Real love or puppy love? I'm not quite sure yet but whatever it may be I know I have strong feelings for this guy. I listen to him when he speaks and he seems to have a golden light surrounding him. He's a good friend I would love to keep but more than that is what I long for.
