    It was when I met you I realized the weeds inside me were roses waiting to bloom. It was when I met you my roses started to flourish even in the most deserted parts of my soul. But lately they have started to die, I keep plucking their beautiful petals pondering whether you love me...

    science class told me the closest star to earth is 4.7 light years away so when that star dies we will continue to see it shine for 4.7 years but I didn’t care about insignificant facts all I knew was you were a star that came down from sky and into my life. I tried so ...
