the empty garden

when you dropped me high above from all clouds, i don’t remember ever landing.. but it felt like a dream. you told me not to look down so i could watch myself slip through the dust of your skin and catch my breath each time you waved goodbye. the life you gave me was not one worth falling for.

sometimes you’ll go searching for happiness in all the wrong places, with all the wrong people and you’ll waste all that time and not realize it until you’ve finally found real happiness.

don’t settle for someone just because they have wild brown hair, dreamy eyes, silky skin and sweet lips. because in the dark they morph into the monsters under your bed, not the angels in your dreams.
