You know, like, everyone’s saying ‘seize the moment’? I don’t know I’m kind of thinking it’s the other way around. You know, like, ‘the moment seizes us’. Yeah, I know it’s constant, the moment, it’s just like it’s always right now.
i wrote you a letter / asked your best friend to send it / but took to the sea before you could have read it / retreated to snowcapped waters of the unknown / extracted my heart while it was still beating / but glowing and red / and i swear that sweat would envelop your arms if you broke down and held it / i swear i’m a good man / so why don’t you love me back? / instead of twisting up words you just sat there in silence / in wind burnt homes sighing rays from a sunset / and all i could hear was the sound of the wasp nest / my head made a home for the hum of the insects / but my hands shake and shudder at the mention / of half hearted reasons why we’ll only be friends / i swear i’m a good man / so why don’t you love me back?
Jolene | Dolly Parton
You could have your choice of men
But I could never love again
He’s the only one for me, Jolene
Is it possible to love someone so much and have them break your heart to infinitely small pieces so that no one else can ever put it back together completely despite how badly you both want to?
