"If only life was as simple as writing with pencil in a notebook. You can erase your mistakes, skip the unimportant details, or even tear out the pages completely to start fresh."

Cross my heart,
And hope to die,
You've made my day,
You've made me sigh.

And silently,
I write your name,
All etched in blood,
Inside my veins.

A thousand words,
A sunset sweet,
A broken chorus,
Melodic beat.

Away from home,
So lost with wounds,
Found a comfort
To finally swoon.

No matter who,
You choose to be,
I'll still be here.
I'll still be me.

So remove your face,
And place it there,
And you run your fingers,
Through my hair.

"Don't wanna break your heart
I wanna give your heart a break
I know you're scared it's wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There's just one life to live
And there's no time to wait, to waste
So let me give your heart a break"

i really love your song!!! <3

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.

:O In love! 

With your poem ;)
