‘You are my downfall
You are my muse
My worst distraction.
My heads underwater but I’m breathing fire.
Your crazy and I’m out of my mind.
Coz all of me, loves all of you.’
Do you think about that kind of love that people write about?
The love that makes you crazy.
Makes everything spin. Makes you do crazy out of this world things.
Gives you the strength to be whatever you THINK you can be?
Remember that love?
Then remember how you gave it up.
Some kinds of love are too hot to hold in your heart.
It exhilarates and sets free, just as much as it burns and hurts.
The types of love that makes you cry just as much as it makes you laugh.
Yes it exists.
Not exactly like the movies. Or the novels.
Coz memories and imagination likes rounded out curves.
But love is nothing LIKE rounded out.
Its jagged. And cruel. And kind. And beautiful. So beautiful, it hurts to look at.
Kind of like an Orchid.
Ever thought of how something so beautiful, is so ugly?
Ever look at an Orchid really closely?
If you look from afar, with a half-glance, you see the unbelievable beauty.
But look too closely, and you see the ANIMAL nature of the markings on the petals. The cruel patterns, that look like open, jagged mouths. Or faces of some kind of alien creature. And it makes you feel so uncomfortable your skin crawls.
Its animal. And its ugly. But its beautiful all the same.
Not for everyone ey?
Which is why most of us, we settle for puppy love.
The kind that warms your heart, and tickles your feet.
That other kind, it wants to crack open your skull and bring out the crazy.
And ain’t nobody got time for that
