These are but vain attempts to express, by one who wears her heart on her sleeve. Words, much like love, can be ever elusive... ever frustrating... like trying to paint a million stories on a single canvass. If you will read, please do not ask. Just feel. Or at least try to. The meaning is, whatever you have felt to be there, or the lack thereof :)

Let your heartbreaks break you

Let your heartbreaks break some parts of you -
your illusions,
your ignorance,
your pride.

Let the pain bring down walls, and force you -
into reality,
into maturity,
into growth.

Let the hurt break you where it matters -
but never your spirit,
your faith,
your heart.

How can it be that I can still grieve,
as I try to understand why you're hounding my dreams.
There is nothing here that you can still want.
Be happy with your choices. Live!

Think no more. Just let me be.
Or at least, tell me clearly
what else do you need,
how else can I set you free.

Waiting for my favorite song

Waiting for you... is like waiting for my favorite song.

I hold my breathe in anticipation of the joyous melody that is sure to come. Snatches of song echo in my memory, flooding me with emotions of moments past when the same melody has given me hope to endure, and inspired me to continue. My heart, for a moment, becomes still in reverence of the gift that I know is coming; of the hope that is coming true.

A second, then two. The opening hum begins.

And then... You (cue in music).

Lift me Up - The Afters
