If your were labelled ' poison ' I'd still go for you over pizza, anytime... Call me crazy, but I mean it.
I mean I really don't know much about love, honestly but hey, every time I see you feels like the first time, every hug still gives me some goosebumps.
But that was then... When I first enrolled to the school of love...
Nothing's changed though, just that you somewhere else, making somebody else smile.
And, damn am I jealous just thinking bout it.
I'd still pick you over pizza if you reading this, ... And I'd still give up coffee so I could get addicted to you over and over and over and over, well you get the point.....
I think I lost track of time, lost sense for a while. Lost myself for a while.. At some point, I almost stopped brushing my teeth, I mean why brush anyway? The kisses were
gone... Why even bother?....
And then I saw you, your smile still blinding and heartwarming as ever... And you were happy, a bit more happy than I'd ever seen you before... And I couldn't even have the guts to just wave even if you wouldn't see it...
My heart broke a second time, more painful than the first, when I thought and remembered the times you were mine and mine alone... When I felt like the sky was all mine...
.. Stupid but true, you were the greatest person have ever met and I can't get you out of my head, and if I could, am pretty sure I'd breath you right back into my system.....

That's a nice thought.

I hope they do realize the importance of them when they are no longer around.

It's just sad that it takes that moment before they realize it.

Most of the times its not because people want her/him... I think people realise the importance of others when they are no longer around... And it hurts, i guess...

.. Thank you Brenda

These words are so heartfelt. I can hear the jealous regret that someone else is making her smile.

It's often the case when one doesn't realize what he has right in front of him.

Always wanting his cake and ice cream too. Never satisfied with what he has...too bad he didn't open his eyes.

Too bad he's not man enough to tell her how he truly feels...or does he?

Maybe he only wants her because others do.

Nice write my friend
