Favorite Quote:
The perpetual pursuit for an unattainable freedom

I want to be there
For every leap and every fall
For every time you laugh and smile,
Your jokes that last forever and
Be there for the smile that makes you open up
And I see within you
Or I think I do
I want to be there
For every time you face contorts
In agony and anguish
For every tear that drips down your freckles
For every moment as you crumble
And slowly flicker out
I want to be there when you rekindle
But I can’t keep lighting your candle.
When mine is burning out
I want to laugh beside you
But I don’t know if it’s a joke
I’m different around you
When we’re together I’m alone
Like a spider web I’m stuck to you
You were someone I thought I could protect,
But you were really behind the gun,
Holding the bullet
And now I’m sitting confused and lied to
Because I wanted to be there
I wanted to help
But I know now that you didn’t need it
And that you wouldn’t be here
With or without me

Now matter how many Poems I write, I always come back to this subject and I can't get it to be what i wan't it to be, but I gues that's also  what the poem is about.
