Life is one amazing gift
but i'd give it all up for you
and then I'd come back and live
because dyings so easy when you believe in a happy place
but living hurts when all I can see is the tears on your face
but for you,
its worth it
to hold you in my roots
and know no matter how the harsh winds bend my branches
we will always be tangles together
the three of us, there for each other
Id give up death for that
like Id give up death to block the winds from you
to protect you from the cold that burns you
even if I can't feel it
Id give up my favorite dream
and break the only promise I can't not keep
to give you some balance
and a gentler breeze
how much easier breathings been
sense you arrived
how much it means to me not to be alone.
Doesn't my heart know I take pride in my independence?
Doesn't it realize I don't need anyone?
but its been beating so much steadier
sense I held your hand;
who told it that it didn't have to let go
just becuase we aren't together anymore?
What brought it to such treason
as to give a piece of itself away?
certainly not me;
without this strange warmth
where you willingly gave back part of your own,
Never mind how well it fits
into the hole I didn't know I had.
I don't need your help, alright?
Holding off this hurt,
fighting off the incredible burning in my soul
where my mind tries to make sense of the world
looking through the shattered glass of her pain.
here you are
beside me, as I gave up ever finding anyone but myself
and maybe, I'll forgive the traitor of my heart
because your hand was so tempting
I had to take it
I just thought I aught to clarify that Jacob Brent is a dancer that I adore in the musical Cats, which I also adore. For those that either have the movie or have been fortanate enough to see it while he was touring Jake plays the fabulous Mr. Mistoffolees, my favorite cat. That was the origional reason I noticed him, and then I realised how really good he is at the part; even when he isn't in the lead he just plays the character so well. Also the poems have nothing to do with him or the play. :p
