2.12.15




We run down with the days,
slowly easing into our grief.

Because it feels like everybody is dying now
and losing heart.

We make ourselves bitter.
We make ourselves cold.

Because it feels like everybody is dying now
and losing heart.

Under the excuse of growing wise
we tear ourselves away and die
in the shade of our hope
before we can ever grasp it.

Under the excuse of being careful
we stand at the edge of our cliffs
and stare at the sea
until we drown.

But I refuse to die now.

And I refuse to lose hope.

We run down with the days,
slowly learning to laugh again.


xoxo


p.s. watch out for a book review and a special valentine's day post this weekend!

  5. This is beautiful! The last two lines are my favorite because it shows that even though this world where everything can seem like it is dying, you can chose to still have hope. ♥

  8. "But I refuse to die now.
    And I refuse to lose hope."

    WHAT JUST HAPPENED TO MY BRAIN. *barfs the rainbow all over your feet* Between you and Cally I don't think I can even breathe when you both post.

    It's just too good.

    Keep writing forever and ever, my dear. And someday it really will make my heart explode but that'll be the way to go, y'know.

      At least the murdering was done with love.

      And I'll keep writing forever and ever, as long as you're there to read it.
