Favorite Quote:
Never give up on love, cause when you do find it. It won't give up on you.

I always lived like I was preventing hurt.
From whoever it may be.
I would make it hard for those to dive in,
For them to really see,
What moves the gears,
What lives down in the deep parts of me.
And now I realize how lonely that could be.


Cause you're my heart of hearts,
You're what conquered every day,
You would lead me with safety into the fray.
You guided me, and took care of me,
And yet, I still led you astray.


And how dare I,
How could I,
Want to even attempt to run away from something so pure,
And I don't want to be on my death bed,
Keeping myself away from my cure.


Cause I love you,
Out of all the love I keep alive inside of me.
From the crease in your nose,
To only the things that I know.
And the twinkling in your eye
That makes me believe that magic is alive,
Cause god damn, I have never seen a black hole implode to create something so otherworldly.


And this isn't all of what I have to give.
Words thrown together trying to define how we live.
But I will know that I adore you, like the first day that I saw you, loving the first days I could call you,
Late night conversations that we ain't all been through.
Just loving you is what I got to do.
And I think I was scared that I always knew.
And your roots have grown so deep seated within my heart.
And you must jump down the rabbit hole,
To see what really lights up my dark.
