“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”

 – Jack Kerouac, “On The Road”

Parting is such sweet sorrow
’tis a widely known fact
The hardest part to get used to
is wondering if you’ll be back

I can deal with last hugs
and the tearful goodbyes
But i cannot bear that look
the despair in your beautiful eyes

Hold on my friend
and hold tight
I shall see you again
We’ll laugh and drink and be merry
and be as close as we were then

Hold still my love
and let me hold you
Let me show you how much i care
I’ll put my all into this last hug
For you to remember when i’m not there

right now
your moment you’ll find
your life is but made up of these
no point in changing what you feel
only feeling what you see

take the risk
swan dive into that cold river
arch your back and live a little

take the leap
push yourself off that ten foot drop
feel all that you forgot

Deep castle shine
Deep worlds collide
Deep ocean roll
Deep goes my mind

World it looks and
World it sees
Within hidden nooks and
Rustling trees

Deep castle crumbles
Deep worlds cross
Deep ocean rumbles
Deep time is lost

World it looks and
World it sees
With open hearts and
Restless seas

Deep castle shakes
Deep castle cries
Deep ocean quakes
Deeper than my lies

You calm me down. Make me smile. I can breathe around you. Be myself
You’re like home. Closer to me than i’ll ever be. You know me better than i shall ever know myself.
You inspire and you seize the day. I hope you never change and i hope one day i can be like you.
You have my heart. It’s yours. Please never give it back but i hope that you can give me your heart in return because i’ll probably need it if you’ve got mine.

maybe we did move too fast
maybe we weren’t meant to last
maybe you’ll just choose to pass
this off as an accident

it’s a mistake
one we all make
one we were meant to break

like a firework across the sky
one bright spark and then we die
fast like the wind, soft like a sigh
give me time to say goodbye

it’s a mistake
one others will make
one others will break

like a candle flame between your fingers
hot to the touch but does not linger
the heat will make the world seem greener
but will not last all through the winter

it’s a mistake
one that will break
our hearts
one that won’t slake
our spirits
the kind that will take
our dreams
