Oh how we have messed up our priorities these days. So much emphasis on so much of the wrong thing. How can we get back to where we began? How do we fix all the time we’ve wasted on so much of the wrong thing? I’ll figure it out and let you know. All you need to know is that there’s so much more to life than how we are living it.
The escape that I need is the escape that I can’t have. There’s a place that makes everything negative instantly disappear. There is a place so amazing that you can turn off your cell phone, put away your computer, and just fucking live. I’m far from this place but I would trade so much to go there right now. There’s millions of people already there, but they are too busy with their lives to realize what’s there. It costs a lot to live in paradise and you know that no one else is paying that tab for you.

Dear you, never let your mind wander too far, these eyes were made only to look into yours. The hands I have been given were only meant to hold the ones connected to your body. There were never two more perfectly connected human beings. There will never be another person capable of lifting my gaze from you to themselves. This heart could never beat again without being a part of you. We are strong and we were made to be placed together amongst billions of others to be an example of something right and true. There will be tough times and there will be others that make their attempts, rest assured these eyes were made only to look into yours. When the times get hard and there seems to be a distance between us remember there will never be a distance too far to keep me from you. Our hands made to interlock perfectly, our lips created only to be placed upon eachother in the most perfect way. This is not a test and this is not a trial, this is real and real endures. It took so many failures to be cast into the correct arms. It took so much from me, but you built it all back up. Even on the darkest days you, I, we, endure, remember that these eyes were made only to look into yours. When the world has you up against the wall and you have no one, I will be your escape. This body, these eyes, this heart, these lips, all meant for one and for that one I will do anything. Do you hear me screaming this from the highest point to the entire world? There is nothing hidden and nothing wrong. There is no destructive behavior. You saved me and I saved you and the timing was perfect when our hands first interlocked and our lips first touched. These eyes were made only to look into yours.
This silence hurts louder than any words could. It’s everything that’s unsaid that hurts so much more than what could be said. I could call a million times and never hear your voice. I could text a million words and never get a reply. It’s so simple to push away the people in our lives begging to be there because we know they’ll never go anywhere. You know I’ll never go anywhere, you know I’ll never leave. This waiting game you’ve created makes a minute feel like an hour and makes an hour feel like days. Come back to where home is, come back to what you’ll always know. Don’t push love away.
It’s confusion at it’s finest how you’re dancing through my head there’s those moments where I’m so alive and moments where I’m dead. I’ve got the highest goals and the most honest of intentions but somehow it feels like these are simply mind inventions. I create a world so safe and comforting inside where I write the most honest lines and find a place to hide. I could write a thousand words without stopping once until the end about what it’s like to live and love and have a true best friend. I could stand up for everything that I find right and true and end up running circles across the earth still chasing you. I’ve got some big ideas and a notebook of fail proof plans all of which could not have been written to be held in anyone else’s hands. I live a life in secret leaving all the judgment up to jealous eyes hoping eventually that all the ill conceived rumors and unwarranted hatred dies. I’m focused on the ending of this story I plan to write in which two people stay together because it’s worth the fight. I could sit and listen to statistics and reasons the world is against me or I can keep writing what I believe and keep the world waiting to see. You’re foolish to think you can change a man who’s already so set in his ways you’ll find in the end you’ve wasted moments, hours, and days. I’ll end this now with a simple ending for those who read this far, you will never change us because an us is what we are.
I’m over everything and everyone. The world can be such an ugly place. Even at my brightest moments I see darkness. There’s so much ugly and so much fake. Clear it out, restart, and rebuild. The world is mine but you’ll never know my name or see my face. I’ve found hope in isolation and comfort in fear. Silence, that’s all you’ll hear. My life is again a puzzle and you’re not up for the challenge.
We are told to stand big and tall and give everything 100%, we are told to fight for what we believe in, to dream big, to chase our dreams, to follow our hearts, to do what is right, to be anything we want to be, and most of all to stay true to ourselves. So why when I do this am I greeted with so much adversity and hatred? The only logical explanation I can come up with is that I’m doing something correct and that jealousy is being shown by people that just don’t understand me. I refuse to believe the world is so simple minded and ignorant to just put down people trying to be successful, but who knows, it wouldn’t surprise me anymore. For those that support, I thank you, and for those that bring me down, you wont stop me. The amount of time spent “hating” on me is actually very flattering. Keep it up, you fuel me to try harder.
