past present

it’s a perfect change of pace
from where we were
to where we are now.

I just want to let all my followers know. I’ve taken a long break but I am now back to write and write!

Just for you

I’m so in love with you.

Seeing me do the things I’d never do.

And it’s all just for you.

Being a better self of myself.

Thinking and doing things I normally wouldn’t do.

And it’s all just for you.

Misery Loves Secrecy

I usually never show anyone who I really am.
It may seem I live a life of nothing but glam.
But my heart’s been covered with nothing but thorns.
Damaged from how my life was before.
I promised myself I’d never live another day with remorse.
And my dear, your assumptions,
is most definitely wrong and will never be real.
You pretend to see me so clear.
But that could never be.
Because I’ll never let you see the inside of me.

Not A Prince But A Servant

I’m starting to realize,
I never knew a single thing about you.
I’m just a fairy tale fool.
Fallin’ in like with someone I hardly knew.
Saying pointless things that weren’t true.
You’re beautiful.
These imperfections make you, you.
And I wish,
I was the prince who got to rescue you.
But you’ve fallen for the one who truly deserves you.
