"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green

Peel back the tangled plight
Of broken promises and vows;
Strip down the bitter lies
I’ve hidden and tried not to rouse;
See through the translucent dreams
Never meant to fulfill;
Unveil the leaching envy
That courses through me still;
Shatter the false hope
Of yearning for something more;
Crumble the acidic thoughts
Of thick and viscous remorse;
Shed the oozing tears
Of lost despair;
Skin the part of me
That wasn’t there;
Expose the layer
You’d like to see,
For I swear
Love flows
The rest of me.
