Life moves on
Even when you’re standing still
Hope dies
So lies develop in your mind
Kicking you forward towards doors
You’re not ready to walk through
Keeping you from staring at that picture on the wall of the two of you
Back when your face in her head
defined love too
She’s “happy you’re not together”
As are you
As are you?
More lies.
Or not.
The truth is buried beneath
Every little fragile part of me
Digging at the chance of getting hurt
So we’ll just leave the past
In the dirt
There’s another rabbit
Wearing your favorite top hat
I can’t compete with that
Smiles camouflage frowns
Fresh flesh helps in calming down
Newness keeps the doctor away
Things are better today
I’m totally…
Ok
More lies
It’s safer this way.

yesterday

I was watching a movie tonight and ended up turning it off halfway through…

I just sat there rolling my eyes the whole time, and I never do that…I love movies. They’re the one single thing I use to escape from my head.

But tonight…

Uggh.

I mean…really. Everything is NOT ok when you spill wine all over a $3,000 dress…in front of all your peers. Not only are you embarrassed but the dry cleaning bill alone would have given me a headache. Then..the mean girl that sabotoged everything you ever tried to do suddenly becomes your bestie? Um no. I would have had to take her out…just on principle alone. And last, but certainly not least, the boy who messed up begs for forgiveness…gets shut down…only to come back and grovel again. She shuts him down a second time BUT he doesn’t give up. Nope. Mr. Pretty boy who can go out and get anything in a skirt, with a simple smile, comes back not just twice…but over 5 times to win her back.

I call bullshit.

Hollywood wants us to believe in this. Yeah, well…not in 2011. Maybe in 1908, or 1912, 1943…etc etc. That’s when love was worth fighting for. But today’s society is too complacent. People don’t revel in the sheer impact of romantic rebirth. What has happened to our culture to make everyone so lazy? We want. We complain…we yearn and obtain…only to what…?

EVERYONE WANTS TO BE IN LOVE.

But nobody wants to do what it takes to stay there.
