The Unrealistic Notion of A Hopelessly In Love Youth

why have I become so dependent on something so temporary?

why does my happiness bank on your warm touch

why can’t I smile unless you hold me

why does the outcome of my day depend on you

why does my heart beat so quickly when I see you

why do you make my loneliness dissolve

why are you the only cure to my stubborn moods and bad days

why have I become so dependent on something so temporary?

why do we promise forever when we only have so little

why am I only striving to make you proud in anything I ever do

why do I feel like at any minute all we have will vanish

why have I become so dependent on something so temporary?

why do I feel so empty when you’re not there,

why does it make me feel as if everything around me is crumbling down

why do I feel like you’re leaving, like i’m not good enough for you

why do I feel like this will end in a blink of an eye, in a matter of seconds

why have I fallen in love with something so temporary

   with something so perfect

   with something so beautiful

with something so unattainable

Me
