“If you’re looking for love, you can look for that door.”


In most cases, doors will lead to nowhere.

This is a call to arms. Arms being desensitization, weariness, being jaded.

A call to stomp when asked to tread lightly. Having the disturbed disturbing.

A call to check your romanticism at the door.


Just because your excess of emotion tips and overflows, I feel compelled to believe you.

But I can’t say much of a downpour that’s desperate for my tears to complete the metaphor.


Risks are declared calculated only when you get out of it alive.

This is another call to give them a run for their money.


Refusal doesn’t necessarily mean an abandon.

And love isn’t everything, but I find it most in its lack.
