What would happen if we both care?
We steer the wheel to chances
And break through faith with despair
What would happen if we both love?
We are over faking smiles and
Dodging glances at each other
We are in it for a reason
We can’t get out of it for a reason
Let’s not get our hopes up
Cause we’re never getting out
Of this two-way street of falling
Compelled desperately of loving
One way or the other
We’d like an escape
From this emotional suicide
Of humanity and we’re hurt
But one way or the other
We’d like to be stuck to each other
Hands chained with letters
Of admiration and we are fine
Love is traitor holding us back
But love is a creator of what we live for
Love is a chance of forgetting weakness
And we can all be screwed up but only to love
I’m supposed to do work stuff today but instead I got lazy enough to watch a marathon of vampire diaries. Quite distracted and inspired in one scene, paused it for a while and made this poem and turned it into a song. Not done yet, made a melody for the chorus part (on bold).
This is about falling inlove – a trap that we can’t ever handle and we never knew. It is what we want and don’t want at the same time and we don’t actually have a choice. Sometimes we love enough but if we get hurt, we want to turn off the feelings and only think of ourselves.. just so the pain will go away. It’s pushing and pulling of nature.
I got inspired with the series. I was watching season 3 when Elena was almost giving in that she also wanted Damon.
