Wherever You Go...I know things are bad and you want to give it all up for good -
Every hit they give knocks you down even more.
I know that a future isn't so bright when it's getting pushed back -
Especially when it's hard to move foreward.
I know it's easy to forget the love you feel from friends and family -
Like when they fill your heart with hatred.
I know you'd like to get away from it all and try something new -
When your eyes are distant and glazing over with tears.
I know that it's not so simple to run away with all these reasons to stay -
Our distance is getting greater as we speak.
Just this once I want to know how to fix all of the wrong things -
To help you through all of these problems.
I don't want you to leave forever and never know how it would have been -
It's nice to think about the future sometimes.
The things you've promised me help me to make even greater promises for you -
And I want you to know I plan to keep every one.
Anything to keep you from being stupid and leaving too soon
You Love Me + You Dont Know MeI've been standing here my whole life -
Scared to move and breathe the contaminated air
Because it fills my lungs and drowns my words.
So how can you stand there and see me now?
I don't remember how you've seen my soul
Or how much I've lied to save my eyes and life.
With every moment changing and shifting the burning sands beneath us now
With every hope and dream that clung to my skin and dreams as I slept in my bed
With every look I gave you and hoped that you would be the one to understand.
Please don't try to help me through all my confusions -
I can pull through this since I got into this myself
It's my burden to bear this time around.
But you can't see me, when did you get the chance?
I've been careful with my choices and actions
Careful not to give it away how unsure I am.
How could everything change so much from those days we loved most?
How could I have become someone so happy and ready to live when I'm not?
How could you know how much I lie, and love me when you do
A Change of PerspectiveA slight disturbance in his peripheral vision made the dazed Hyuuga look up towards the door. His eyes lingered warily on the the frail little girl standing there. She was, of course, poking her fingers together nervously and her dark bangs covered her slightly painted cheeks. Really, she annoyed him sometimes.
"Hinata-sama?", he questioned. At the sound of his voice, she was startled into looking up at him. The look on her face made him feel flustered. Why was she always so nervous? "Was there something you needed?"
"H-hai, Ne-Neji niisan." Her eyes went downcast again as she continued to toy with her fingers. "W-we began some more t-taijutsu studies a-and well..." Her voice almost went out on her as she became more agitated and nervous. Really, how annoying!
"Hinata-sama, please just say what you need to say." Something about the way her body faltered made him feel bad. Had he hurt her feelings? Why was she always so soft and frail?
"U-um I was wondering i-if you would help me s-stud
Childhood LoveSomething strange and new that seems to flow like time:
missed, used, wasted, charished.
Of course I feel like a kid again, with all the memories refreshed
(like hitting a reset button?)
Back to swingsets and ice cream cones -
needing band-aids to cover scratches
gained from falling down one too many times
smiling through each accident.
How is it pain is so happy? Magic - a trick?
It's a memory most loved.
And with each joking insult I smile bigger:
