I dare to dream that falling in love is more than what I've experienced.

I dare to dream that broken families always find their way.

I dare to dream that angels watch above me as I write.

I dare to dream of beauty that will take my breath away.

Outside the world, inside of peace, dreams thrown over my shoulder.
Weighing me down, lifting me up, waiting for this to be over.
Sniling, frowning, laughing, silence..surviving one more day.
I dare to dream that dreaming is a dreamer's only way.

Life is like music - You can make mistakes so you try again. But when the piece can't be helped you try again another time.

this is amazing, you have a real talent. the last line really ended it well. I'm sure angels do watch over you because your poetry is brilliant:)

“maybe I can help”

“Ah, yes, you want to be a writer don’t you?”

“You say that as if it’s a bad thing”

“No, no. just a lonely thing. Sometimes the world you create on the page seems more friendly than the lives in the world you actually live in.

This is really amazing!!!!!

Everything makes sense if you think too much about it.

The last line is like a deep flame out of ashes.

The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.

two words: loved it
