Macbeth Was Right

from by Alatus



When it all began I was ignorant to a possibility of a means to an end.
My heart aches cries and throbs with pain at the thought of having, just a friend.

What is romance? What is chivalry? What is love? What am I?

If I'm trapped in the future and you're trapped in the past, if we both pull ourselves together I'm more than sure we can make this last.

Fear is a reflex and drama is a goal. The inside me carries that goal and the outside me will do all it can to get rid of it. I know it sounds cliché but I feel at war with myself. I feel that no matter what I do I will always strive to undo my happiness. I tie the string neatly in a knot and as I fall asleep I begin to undo that knot. I wake up and the cycle continues. In this case I wish I was an insomniac. I wish things were so much easier…and I wish you were here.

Your beauty is my lighthouse, guide me home. Away from all these shady days. Stranded on the phone. Are we okay? Will we end this way? Your beauty is my lighthouse, guide me home.
