when i die

i promise you’ll be okay. things take time. before you know it, you’ll be fine as if nothing has happened at all. just keep living as you would as if you’ve never met them at all. at the end of it all, your life is a life for you to live, not a life to live for someone else.

think about this and think about us

what do you think a relationship should be?
do we force ourselves to find a single topic to speak of?
i was under the assumption that things came naturally.
and i’m starting to think,
what we have isn’t as natural as i want it to be.

Changes Are Forever Lasting

It doesn’t leave you completely.
Moving in a state of past tense.
Doing the things that keep you reminiscing of before.
Keeping you covered with a sheet of security.
And we keep it as it is.
Unwilling to look for more.
But as time discretely passes us by,
we all learn to;
live more.
experience more.
love more.
Evolving every moment as the clock strikes seconds to seconds.
