“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

I beg your forgiveness, beau
Flood back to me, like a tsunami
The melodic patterns of my tears, or
is it cinder gushing from the eyes of me?

I drowned you in a sea of wounds, dearie
Then I did not think of the outcome I'm through 
Now, fire freely flows from my eyes, I'm sorry
The shade of this pain has only one cure; it's you

Our roads might have been meant to part
So did all my mirth, after your absence 
Still enamoured to you, love, wails my heart
Forgive me, for I really miss your essence

If I'm Winter, you're the warmth, dear
Take my hand again please, with your eyes' light
which would brighten my darkest fear 
Without you, I'm like a blackless night

And to your night i become day
because of this stay far away
you hurt me so once or twice
breaking me down with tears and lies

Im sick of listening to your broken song
as you tell me we can go on
you cheating, lying, daughter of night
can go and take a peter pan flight

our roads divided long before you knew
I saw you drift away my moon
and not that your gone I can finally see
You drained my essence and watched me bleed

so as you I shall flood back
as a wave of fury, anger and regret
fighting my demons and slaying them with pride
go home little girl, its time for me to rise.
