"Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option."
A broken man, with broken dreams, trying to put them together with nothing but hope and prayers.

the way I’m
to be feeling
The only infliction you can cause on yourself is getting too attached to a person.
Be it a friend, a family member, anyone.
Anyone who earns a place in your heart, invariably also earns the right to break it in two. To cripple you.
And eventually, they will.
There was this couple I knew.
Never known anybody sadder, than those two.
Her wrists were weak, her ankles frail.
He popped too many coloured pills, and yet his skin turned pale.
Each day brought some form of despair. And they’d kiss each other, as if it was a prayer.
Each day brought some form of misery.
And they held on to each other, inseparable they used to be.
Each day tried to break them,
But love saw them through.
But I’ve never known anybody sadder, than those two.
His happiness was her frail, velvet touch.
When they lay in bed, and the days were too much.
He’d stroke her hair, gentle kisses on her forehead.
She’d draw him closer, kiss him back, with very little, left unsaid.
And so I asked him one day, begged him to reveal.
How in times of such suffering, could they still feel,
Love and joy?! When they should have been through.
And he said, “Why shouldn’t we?! I’ve never known anybody happier than us two!”
All I could do was smile,
And I smiled the longest I have ever in my life.
Even to this day, that warmth in his answer feels anew.
Truth be told,
I’ve never known anybody happier, than those two…
