I thought much about it, and I've finally made up my mind.

We both know that we are like flowers waiting to bloom: two young, carefree people who are raw and fragile.

Somehow, our hearts' connected and tried to write up their own melodic song that would play constantly under the sea of stars and moonlight.

But, let's face the fact that it was all just another written fairytale.

We thought of trying to follow our mighty pens and they would just eventually have to stop because the ink's all dried up, thus the missing words would not complete ourselves as one leaving us even more apart.

More than being strangers walking along the streets, and less than what could have been.

That's why we needed to stop, something both of us cannot even name before it unexpectedly begins.

Or we'll just end up sticking thorns on each other, even if it's not on purpose.
