Just being you

You are wild in nature
And you're never still for long
You're free as the wind
Making your own choices
Being your own person
I love that about you
But it scares me
Because just when I think I have you
You're gone from my grip
You seem to drift away
Further and further away
We can never smile like we used to
We're not who we used to be
You and I were a match
A pair, one of a kind
But you changed
In such a short time
You were the sun in my sky
The laughter and the smiles
It was me and you
Against the world
Then before I even knew...
You changed like never before
Now we don't quite fit
I can't tell who you are
But it's alright
because I know you'll come around
And you'll realize that's not who you are
I'll turn around
And it'll be as if nothing happened
We'll fit right back to together
Just like before
We smile through the good times and bad
We'll go through Hell and back
I know for sure,
because it's happened more than once
I'll guide you back to who you really are
I'll hold your hand tight and never let go
because you did the same for me
Being by my side,
You made me realize
That life is about laughter and tears
It's okay to forget
It's a sign of self defense
You're protecting your heart
I'm protecting your smile
So keep on going
Until the day is over, and the show is done

I love your poem. It explains so well, how we need to keep holding on to people and bringing them back to reality, and themselves. It's so hard to do that just by yourself for yourself. And to do that for another requires a lot of strength.

Anyways, one Otaku to another, I love Skip Beat and OHHC too! They're making a Taiwanese drama outta Skip Beat YIPPIE ^o^

Keep writing :D
