To love is to destroy to be loved is to be destroyed~jace wayland
forever alone

They start as small and innocent as snow flakes easily brushed away
But for an unknown reason i let them stay
As they build one on top of the other they make it harder for me to walk
Until i cant move and I'm stuck in the cold
When I do oh what a mistake the snow rattles and shakes
It rolls rolls down hill and makes the earth rock
It grows and grows until the first snow flake is lost
Then it all seams pointless but its to late to go back

This is me trying to explain to my mom and well everyone that my feelings aren't caused by one thing its a snowball effect.

This totally relatable. Great analogy :) Keep writing just one tip maybe make the rhyming rhythm between the lines a little smoother. Otherwise great description and great topic :)
