For him :) For the risks. For time. For the dare :P Will you still love me when I'm no longer young and beautiful? Will you still love me when time has passed and all that there's left of me will be my aching soul? Please, feel free to comment what you think and on how I am able to improve my writings :D Thank you for reading this :)

He was the summer when winter came,

Left dry footprints where it rained,

And grew flowers where only bones remained,

His lips were as soft as a petals on a rose,

And as addictive as coffee within the early rays of the day,

As stubborn as nature during a rebelliously wild storm,

Strong and unwilling to give up,

He preservers on, following the trail of the moon and stars,

Forever in search of a dream,

To live a life worth living.


He is the sinking daylight when the night is to come,

The sweet melody within the heart,

Words he spoke before remain in my ears,

As his feathery touch drifts gently upon my skin,

I travel deep within the depths of his mind,

As terrifyingly deep and as beautiful as the ocean,

I fall deep within it, 

Exploring its depth and beauty,

Amazed but fearful of what resides within the heart of the deep.


I plunge in ready to risk my own soul,

Ready to uncover the mysteries and treasures within,

Questions arise and doubt will come,

But still I will swim steady on,

Till my fears and doubts will be replaced,

And I shall be able to hope once again,

Without treading carefully upon the sandbed,

Almost like it'll be my watery grave,

This risk I take will hopefully not drown me,

But keep me afloat and away,

Away from my watery grave,

Where few pieces of my heart fell,

And pieces of them remain,

Hopefully this time,

The same thing won't happen again.

But am I fool to repeat my mistakes?

Or will I be rewarded for this chance I gave?
