Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desire can be won. It exists. It is real. It is possible. It is yours.

Never before have I felt that I’m
gonna go mad in this way.
Give me something to hold onto.
You hold my heart, but
up through now, you did not know that

never did I believe that I was
gonna get someone as perfect as you to
let me into your world. Only
you know me
down to the very soul.

Never would I have thought you were
gonna make the move you did. Thoughts
run through my head constantly, circling
around the complications that arose
and the confusion that ensued. I prayed you would not
desert me or give up on me. I wanted
you, and I promised myself that I would

never stop chasing you, even though it was
gonna take months, if not years to
make you realize that. To me,
you are my stability; the one who can make me laugh when I
cry. The one who would

never lose faith in me, and the one that I am
gonna love until the day I die. Some
say love is forever. How can people say
goodbye to a piece of their heart?

Never let go of something you are
gonna treasure for the rest of your life.
Tell me but one thing. Do you love me, too?
A bit of my soul gets poured into every poem. I
lie awake night after night reminiscing
and re-savoring every moment. Never are there any feelings of
hurt or loss. Only memories. Only bliss. Only
