The waves are beginning to get bigger and stronger,
The blue water pushes and pulls and rises higher with each passing second, but it doesn’t touch me.
I sit on the shore, safe for now and stare in disbelief.
I know if the waves come closer, I won’t stand a chance, I will be engulfed in them.
If I squint my eyes enough, I can spot a ship in the distance.
The image is hazy but I know it’s waiting for me,
That’s where I need to be, I know I have to cross the waves,
But the rising water petrifies me.
I sit here, staring silently at the sea and it gently but sternly reminds me that time is running out,
For now the only thing I’m drowning in is my fear.
Little beautiful butterfly,
You’re such a tease,
You’re always flitting in and out of people’s life with ease.
Little beautiful butterfly I knew you would never stay,
Butterflies are inconsistent creatures…
They were always meant to fly away.
Love somebody more than they’ll ever love you.
Live every waking second wanting them.
Ask them out, ask them again, until you get tired of hearing no.
Go ahead, hand them your heart and the hammer that they can smash it with.
Stand and watch as they shatter your heart into a million pieces.
Love somebody who will love you more than you can ever love them.
Spend every waking second holding their heart in your hand and twisting it.
Say no to them when they ask you out. Keep saying no until they never want to ever ask you out again.
Smash their heart into a million pieces with the hammer they give you.
Stand and watch them fall apart.
Then find someone who will love you equally.
Unlearn all that you had previously learnt.
Ask them out and let them ask you out.
Keep their heart safe just as they keep yours.
Stand and watch yourself fall in love with them…
Over and over again…
Just like they do.
