Life is either a great adventure or nothing.
Helen Keller (via girlwithoutwings)
This obsession with the ground
I wouldn’t say it’s new ..
Maybe a recent observation that suddenly struck me
I’m constantly laying on there
But I’ve come to the realization that maybe it holds a reasoning much deeper
Than wanting to entertain my daily hobbies there
The unconscious thought that there’s no where left to fall
It’s my safety blanket
I’ve gotten up and fallen so many times I’ve lost count
With each drop .. picking up bruises and cuts along the way
I’m damaged and scarred
The result of a brave soldier who’s been on the battlefield one too many times
This emotion we call love
I’ve never seen so many people fall so deeply in but so quickly out of this so called ‘thing’
They say that through the years we’ve translated the most important words through this muffle
Losing its real meaning along the way
Twisted and misinterpreted to the point where it isn’t the same word at all
Using them so loosely and without care
And sometimes even hate
So here I lay
On the ground
I found the end of this ‘bottomless pit’
Is it unjust that I feel safer at the bottom than the top?
That after the fall I’ve lost all motivation and the will to even try and get back up?
Who has to shed another tear?
Mend another heart?
Who has to lose in this never ending game?
So here I lay covering myself with the sand of despair
Burying myself deeper
Never again will you hurt me
For I’m already hurt
Never again will I lose myself in someone I thought was my whole
For I am already lost
We’re not able to say the things we feel
Not because we don’t know how we’re feeling
But because sometimes
They’ve been said already
Said better than I would have ever thought to construct it
We find these things in song
In a glimpse
A tear …
Somethings don’t need to be explained
Sometimes saying nothing at all

Why Do We Do This?
I’m here wondering
Should I call?? … Or shouldn’t I??
Am I being too open??
Do I let down my guards??
Will you hurt me?
Will I hurt you?
What are we? .. And when is it O.K. to ask?
Can I call you on the phone crying because the day was just too much? .. And all I needed to hear was you just to bring it right back?
Can I tell you how much I missed you every time the second hand struck?
Is it too early to call you baby?? Or is it just my luck?
Cause I’m sitting here wondering
When is it that you’re gonna be my baby
These thoughts they’re driving me crazy
Our situations getting that much hazzy
Why do we do this?
Settling ourselves up for the fall
When it’s likely you didn’t care for me at all
How will I know?
I can’t ask .. because I don’t know when is right
And I cant risk loosing you by moving to fast
But when I’m looking in your eyes
And it forces out a smile that causes you to grin
When you hold me tighter just imagining
What life would be like if this was our forever
Then that kiss on my forehead makes me realize
This is why we do this
Sometimes worrying is the hardest part
As I open up my wings setting up to take flight
your hands meet mine and its just a leap of faith
Taking me ..
Taking me to the cottons in the sky
As I look over at you my heart it’s melting too
Have we hit it??
Oh, Yes I’m there
Perfectly in Love with you!
We have trouble
Choosing between yesterday and tomorrow
As much as it sucks we can’t choose both
We can’t truly experience tomorrow with yesterday in hand
This baggage that we seem to enjoy carrying around not noticing the effects
But the thought of letting it go seems heavier than the weight
Look to tomorrow
Because you’ll find that no matter how hard you hold on to yesterday
It will never come back
So get up and start shaping your tomorrow
Cause this is life
Don’t ever stop living it because of regrets that can and never will be altered
