"If live gives you lemons throw them people you dont like. There problems solved."

I saw you again,
All broken bones and paper skin.
The girl who always jumps,
From her launch-pad-porch-swing,
Grasping at stars.
You dream of astronauts in concrete jungles,
And holding planets beneath your palms;
Dreams of vivid colors,
Dancing in the reflection of your eyes,
As the world crushes your limbs, and peals away your skin.
Swing, swing, swing away
From those suits
That swallow your dreams.
Break your limbs but never give in,
As the stars ache to burn your fingertips.
Swing, swing, swing.

This is good, and sends a good message, though it seems a bit confusing to me.  I wouldn't have known what it meant if you hadn't said.

Love is a two way street. If you find yourself on a one-way road, it's time to take the next turn off.

This is really good(:
