My only love sprung from my only hate. Too early seen unknown and known too late.

They tell you it's okay
They tell you that it's fine
Deep inside you know it's not
In your mind it's a crime
But the heart can change the mind
Now you're battered and scared
And you feel as if you might break
But you can't take back that one mistake

Take nothing but pictures,
Kill nothing but time.

"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"

Wow, this is incredably relatable! It's so true how one mistake, no matter how small, can make you beat yourself up so much. Very good, I don't have anything bad to say about it!
