Never ignore someone who cares for you because someday you'll realize you've lost a diamond while you were busy collecting stones.

You want me to forget everything and leave it behind,

Like it never happened,
Like it never changed my life? You think it is that easy to let it all go,

To tear your heart out,

Throw all your feelings out the door?

Well, it’s not, and I just can’t. Even trying shatters my heart into a million pieces like a glass thrown against the floor,
No matter how hard I try to get these memories out, they remain engraved in me like a scar on my soul, a bridge to the past,
The memories just keep rushing back to me,

Then I can’t fall asleep,
Sudden nostalgia continues to bustle through me,

The world thinks it’s easy to just toss it away because they have no idea how it feels,

To pretend something that makes your heart race and your stomach flutter never even arose in the first place,

Something that fills the blank spaces in between with colors, so bright it seems like an illusion. So you know what, even though everything may be diminishing, I’m going to hold on no matter what it takes,

I’m going to try to rebuild everything that is slowly demolishing before me,

Because these memories with you are too precious for me to let go.
