    love
    is like the ocean
    there will always
    be high and low tides

    but if you are patient
    enduring
    not seeking the quick thrill
    of a perfect wave

    like the ocean
    love is eternal

    four walls
    full of darkness
    closing in on me
    until i cannot breathe

    just me and my thoughts
    all the things i have done
    falling back on me
    in this empty room

    the only question left
    whether the emptiness is filled
    with love or hate
    whether i live or die

    in this empty room
    that is my life

    you stayed
    when i was at my worst
    scared, angry, lashing out

    you stayed
    although i pushed you away
    held me close
    and did not let me go

    you fought for me
    i don't know why
    for my undeserving love

    you stayed
    and saved me from myself

    life on the fast lane
    is escape from past pain

    time was running out
    and my life flashing by
    saw all the mistakes
    and missed opportunities

    too late to change anything
    i thought of you
    and all the wrongs faded
    because sometimes
    one right thing is enough
    to redeem a life

    my every fear
    belongs to you
    the anxiety
    of not fitting in
    the nightmares
    that wake me in sweats
    the jumpiness
    i cannot seem to shake

    i cannot rid myself
    of your hate
    but i can live with it
    and face my fears
    boldly
    every day

    you're in every long car ride
    all the toasts hawaii
    in the cheesy daily sitcom
    i watched for your sake

    but most of all
    you're in his eyes
    so sad and dulled
    since you left
    in his every move and thought
    until he'll be able to join you

    you are missed so dearly
    by many, but most by him
    whose whole world you were

    and will always be

    the fear of losing you
    is the bane of my life
    dragging me down
    like a chain around my neck

    yet i would never give it up
    if it meant not having known you
    at all

    being alone
    is scary, raw, vulnerable

    but also
    honest, true, and hopeful

    being alone
    is all there is

    in the end

    my heart sings
    when our souls collide
    on this slippery slope
    that is our fantasy life
    where love lives forever
