even after all these years the sun has never said to the earth, you owe me... look at what a love like that can do, it can light up the sky

It kills me to see you dying,
So I’m digging out a grave,
But it seems you’d rather throw us in, than throw the past away.

I’ve been building up a haven,
Where you can smile again,
But your memories eat like termites, and the house keeps caving in.

The past, is like your teddy bear,
You latch onto it tight,
But you’re all grown up; you’re a big girl now, and it’s time to say goodnight.

So this is my last call to you,
To bring you back from the dead,
Because its way past due for you, to kick him out of your head.

I wrote this about my friend, who is recovering from her first big heart break. She felt so down and I wanted her to feel better so i wrote her this.

This was really good and I could really feel your dedication to making your friend happy in it. I hope that she's doing better now, but at any rate I loved it. Do you think you could give me some feedback on my work sometime?
