when it was hope's loss.
when you stood tall, and my memories stood right next to yours.
when i refuse to turn you into a sepia-toned memory.
when i dreamt of places to go, sights to feast my eyes on, food to experience, music to fall in love with, only to wake up and realize that my wings were clipped.
when you needed answers, and i had none to give.
when all that glittered in my memories was golden.
when a gradient towards infinity acts like a closure.
when risky business takes on a whole different meaning.
when you've been feeling like an ice queen.
when you meet anxiety meeting creativity.
when sometimes rocks just don't do it anymore.
when you all can do is clamour to be still, as still life speeds you by.
when i sighed, and i knew you'd understand why.
when i could hear your laughter through all the lights.
when you buy pretty things for no one but yourself.
