Love is just a word.

Love is just a word that lingers in silence. It doesn't need to be said, It doesn't need to be heard, I can see it in your smile. So look at me.

To the boy who loves me next, I'm quiet, but when I'm not quiet, I'm loud. I play the piano four hours a day, so please don't get annoyed, it's the only thing I've ever really felt good at.

sometimes battles don’t make us stronger.

So I tried to make it better, But better wasn't enough, Your depression overwhelmed me, And soon it hurt to bluff. I can't handle it I told you, I could… Continue reading sometimes battles don’t make us stronger.
