To love is to destroy, and that to be loved is to be the one destroyed.



we love.

The apparition trapped inside ourselves pushes up against metal bars,

their transparent hands reaching between the cracks,

trying to grasp onto something,


to feel alive...


A passion so strong was locked away inside a house,

bodies fit like puzzle pieces against each other,


aren't we all?

That missing moment,

when we lose a portion of ourselves.

We're all cracking mirrors with different reflections,

throwing a fist against a shiny surface,

as we whisper,

"That's not us..."

But to love is to be destroyed,

and that to be loved is to be the one destroyed...

Is it not cold?

The red liquid that flows from these hearts...

Oh destroy me! <3 I'd pay

Oh destroy me! <3 I'd pay those prices at tbed worst of times! Love is not at all for the faint of heart, and only time ever tells if its true. What a twisted agreement to have with love, infinity and  chance a tricky trinity! Loved it hugss 

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

I concur,

It 'tis not for the faint of heart,

and God forbid if it had a stroboscope attached with it.

Thank you. <3
