I wish it would go away, the trembling of my nerves when I wake up and her face is the first thing on my mind.
I remember those days when I first met her.
She was a gem. A Rose amongst Dandelions.
Little did I know her thorns were razor sharp.
I’d’ve seen them had I not been blinded by her smile, luminous in its deceit.
The kind of smile that hides her sad eyes.
The eyes that have watched her heart break a thousand times.
The eyes have watched her hands build a wall so massive Mongols couldn’t get through.
I tried to bring it down but I couldn’t.
I tried to bring love to her doorstep. Tried to help her feel again, but I failed.
She’ll be hiding behind that wall, like her eyes behind that smile.
Forgetting what it feels like to let someone in.
