I have seen this city
inside and out
back to front
I have walked between its buildings
made my way along
its many paved arteries
I am almost too familiar with this city
But I can’t help thinking
it would look totally different
with someone walking beside me
“Now or Never”
What are we scared of
When the night turns into morning
And we’re still in each other’s arms?
Why don’t we give up?
There’s no reason for assuming
That we will do each other harm
I don’t regret a single day
That was spent in beauty
Why talk about “meant to be”?
How ‘bout what it meant to me?
Those are the moments I won’t trade
Not to live forever
Life is now or never
And I prefer it together
The morning after
I breathe into the shirt you borrowed
It still smells like you, my heart’s guest
Evenings of laughter
Drive out most thoughts of tomorrow
We’re both held safe in the other’s chest
So what if we’re not so permanent?
What if I’m not your destiny?
Is this just a waste of our time?
Or what if all moments are heaven-sent,
It’s right that you mean so much to me,
And it’s just good to feel your hands and lips with mine?
I noticed that she re-pinned,
"You will never have to force anything that’s truly meant to be,"
and shortly thereafter, I re-pinned,
"Do what is right not what is easy."
It’s like this worldview game we’re still playing without intent or purpose.
It is night.
Rain pelts the roof.
The soul awakens
to a flooded Earth -
a sea of storm
In that short moment,
shifting lines and shapes,
Before the passing moment tilts
and falls to melancholy,
in quiet raindrops.

Just realized my reblog of a Dr. Who 50th Anniversary tribute was my 500th post… And I’m pretty OK w/ that :)
