You can't fall when you're holding someone up.

"I can't tell you how it really is, I can only tell you what it feels like."

What's real is how it feels for your shirt to be soaked with someone else's tears.

What's real is to feel their trembling body pressed against yours because all they want is somebody to love them.

What's real is when you hold a burden larger than both of you, just so they won't have to.

What's real is when they grab your hand and never let go.

What's real is when you jump in front of death...just for them.
