Reminder…

Whenever you find yourself
doubting how far you can go,
just remember how far you have come.
Remember everything you have faced,
all the battles you have won,
and all the fears you have overcome.

-Unknown

Something to fuel that fire burning within.

Thank you to whoever thought of this quote. 🙂

Mouthful Of Forevers

I am not the first person you loved.You are not the first person I looked at with a mouthful of forevers. We have both known loss like the sharp edges of a knife. We have both lived with lips more scar tissue than skin. Our love came unannounced in the middle of the night.
Our love came when we’d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle.

This is how we heal.
I will kiss you like forgiveness.
You
will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book
.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
of your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you
.

And I will not be afraid
of your scars.

I know sometimes
it’s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether it’s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions,
you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane.

 

– Clementine von Radics

I really love this poem. 😊 I hope I can write something as beautiful as this, I’ll try composing one during my spare time. 😀

Lost Stars – Adam Levine

Please don’t see
Just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies
Please see me
Reaching out for someone I can’t see

Take my hand, let’s see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans sometimes are just a one night stand
I’ll be damned, Cupid’s demanding back his arrow
So let’s get drunk on our tears

And God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

Who are we?
Just a speck of dust within the galaxy?
Woe is me
If we’re not careful turns into reality

But don’t you dare let our best memories bring you sorrow
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer
Turn the page, maybe we’ll find a brand new ending
Where we’re dancing in our tears

And God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
We’re searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

And I thought I saw you out there crying
And I thought I heard you call my name
And I thought I heard you out there crying
But just the same

And God, give us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

And I thought I saw you out there crying
And I thought I heard you call my name
And I thought I heard you out there crying
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?
Are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

Will watch the movie Begin Again. Keira Knightley’s version of this song is also amazing. 🙂

Two is Better than One – Boys Like Girls ft. Taylor Swift

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life and I thought hey
You know, this could be something

‘Cause everything you do and words you say
You know that it all takes my breath away
And now I’m left with nothing

So maybe it’s true that I can’t live without you
And maybe two is better than one
But there’s so much time to figure out the best of my life
And you’ve already got me coming undone
And I’m thinking two is better than one

I remember every look upon your face
The way you roll your eyes, the way you taste
You make it hard for breathing

‘Cause when I close my eyes and drift away
I think of you and everything’s okay
I’m finally now believing

Then maybe it’s true that I can’t live without you
And maybe two is better than one
But there’s so much time to figure out the best of my life
And you’ve already got me coming undone
And I’m thinking two is better than one

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life and I thought, hey (hey, hey)

Maybe it’s true that I can’t live without you
Maybe two is better than one
There’s so much time to figure out the best of my life
And you’ve already got me coming undone

And I’m thinking, ooh, I can’t live without you
‘Cause, baby, two is better than one
There’s so much time to figure out the best of my life
But I’ll figure out with all that’s said and done
Two is better than one, two is better than one

This song still gets me tho. 🙂

Into Your Arms – The Maine

There was a new girl in town.
She had it all figured out. (Had it all figured out)
And I’ll state something rash.
She had the most amazing….smile.
I bet you didn’t expect that.
But she made me change my ways. (She made me change my ways)
With eyes like sunsets baby.
And legs that went on for days.

I’m fallin’ in love
But it’s fallin’ apart.
I need to find my way back to the start.
When we were in love.
Oh things were better than they are.
Let me back into.
Into your arms.
Into your arms.

She made her way to the bar.
I tried to talk to her.
But she seemed so far. (She seems so far)
Outta my league.
I had to find a way to get her next to me.

I’m fallin’ in love
But it’s fallin’ apart.
I need to find my way back to the start.
When we were in love.
Oh things were better than they are.
Let me back into.
Into your arms.
Into your arms.

Oh she’s slippin’ away.
I always freeze when I’m thinking of words to say.
All the things she does.
Make it seem like love.
If it’s just a game. (Just a game)
Then I like the way that we play.

I’m fallin’ in love
But it’s fallin’ apart.
I need to find my way back to the start.
I’m fallin’ in love
But it’s fallin’ apart.
I need to find my way back to the start.
When we were in love.
Oh things were better than they are.
Let me back into.
Into your arms.
Into your arms.
Into your arms.
Into your arms.

One of my favorite songs during my college days. 🙂

When You Feel Like Giving Up On Love

There’s always this one time when losing a significant part of us forces us to learn the tough way.

But, there’s also this time when struggling gets easier day after day; when getting by doesn’t hurt as much anymore. One day, tears naturally dry up and fears start melting away. And then the next thing we know, we are beginning to be whole again.

We hurt not because of love… but because we forget what love is. 🙂

Thought Catalog

At least once in your life, have you ever turned your back on love? Have you ever felt love demanded too much from you, or too much of you? Ever felt love plays favoritism and you believed you weren’t one of it?

Sometimes in our lives, we can’t deny that our stars are arranged that way — when we purposely force ourselves to leave love behind because at one point, everything hits beside the mark. No matter how we try to put our shattered pieces back together, nothing ever fits perfectly again. We try so hard to move on with life having a beaten drive. We go on with a figuratively dying self, crawling with the very last strength we have. There’s always this one time when losing a significant part of us forces us to learn the tough way.

But, there’s also this time when struggling gets easier day after day; when getting by…

Young Blood – The Naked and Famous

We’re only young and naive still
We require certain skills
The mood it changes like the wind
Hard to control when it begins

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Can’t help myself but count the flaws
Claw my way out through these walls
One temporary escape
Feel it start to permeate

We lie beneath the stars at night
Our hands gripping each other tight
You keep my secrets hope to die
Promises, swear them to the sky

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

As it withers
Brittle it shakes
Can you whisper?
As it crumbles and breaks
As you shiver
Count up all your mistakes
Pair of forgivers
Let go before it’s too late
Can you whisper?
Can you whisper?
Can you whisper?
Can you whisper?

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

This song gives me hope, been listening to this since yesterday… I’m still trying to find the in-betweens while hoping to fall back in love when the right time comes.  As of now, I’m enjoying every moment as this young blood rushes through my veins. 🙂
