For the one who makes my heart swell and tear at the same time;
I thank you today for what you've given me. I curse you today for what you've taken. You never fail to raise me up so high just as you never fail to tear me down just as quickly.
I should have known what I was getting into when I signed up for it. I sold my soul to your praise and you flex your power by taking it piece by tiny, burning piece.
I'm a fool, the jester in your court, but I can't escape. I won't, because you are intoxicating, blindingly technicolor in a monochrome movie. You are wonderful.
Sadly, I am a dandelion and you are a cherry tree, blossoming beautifully while I wilt in your shadow. Where my seeds may leave I will stay, right here, with you.
Even as your blossoms fall and you become less, I am here to catch your pink tears as they fall, smothering me until I am no more and the cycle repeats.
But I shall remain with you. I am gone and forgotten, but you are not, forever in my mind as I wither. To the one who makes my heart swell and tear at the same time;
