a/n: please never say that no one loves you. because people really do, and i do, and all you have to do is get up and look around.
you've noticed her once, but you never said hi
for your eyes were so dull and you constantly cried
and she sat down beside you and wanted to stay
but you were always too sad to think what to say.
when she held out her hand you abruptly drew back
for kindness would just give you panic attacks
and she smiled with the light of a million bright stars
yet you would not even look on from afar.
she fell in love with you despite all your tears
and she'd give up so much just to have you near
but you saw her bright eyes as beacons of warning
and you were too afraid to tell her good morning.
day after day she'd come sit down beside you
and try to clear up that dark sadness inside you
but you never did truly believe you'd get better
and refused to write her so much as a letter.
but she'd never give up, as she'd been there before
and she wanted you to know what you have in store
but you never could see the future as bright
you refused to try changing, with all of your might.
she'd never stop trying to clear you of your strife
to be a bright light in your worry-fraught life
but you closed all your windows and replaced them with walls
and the sadness got to you and made you feel small.
and you'd never admit it, but she'd left a spark
right there, in your heart, where it always was dark
and everyone knows that sparks create flames
that glitter and dance and don't leave you the same.
and she lies awake hoping that you'll be okay
that someday your sadness will all burn away
and sooner or later your tears and your cries
will give way to stunningly bright starry eyes.
