It's dangerous you know, the in flight fall.
The waiting for impact
Not wondering if it's going to happen,
but when
My sense of self is a slight memory
Nothing this perfect can last forever
so you just wait, wait for immanent death
You were grown to think this way,
you where born in a world where true love is hard
it's hard and it's complicated
it's sacrifice
and it's pain

Nothing good in life comes easy

So you sit waiting for the plane to hit the ground
You hold on for dear life,
and remember everything good
Everything up until now was just waiting

Nothing good in life lasts

So you sit waiting for the plane to hit the ground
I bet I will wake up
I'll wake up and realize I never left my bed
It's dangerous you know, living in your dreams.
You don't want to be woken up,
but fear with everything in you, that you might have to
Conditioned that you never get everything you want

Beggars can't be choosers

So you sit waiting for the plane to hit the ground
Could it be possible it never does?
Can you get everything you want?
Why does it have to feel doomed before it even began
And why do we run when we don't really know what we fear
It's dangerous you know,

A thousand days feels like one moment with you. Life took a million times a million years, in that regard, to find you. It's just about the same as if I had just dreamed about everything that could make me happy...and then multiplied it a thousand times over.

Never [have I ever] thought these feelings existed at all, (put one finger down). Never [have I ever] thought these nonexistent feelings could happen to me, (second finger down). Never [have I ever] felt more then ever thought possible, (third finger down). Eventually I'm the first one with all fingers down.

It's a little bit difficult to discuss what took me to this place in life. All I know is I'm here, and now I know. Now I know why it takes your breath away, now I know how it stops your heart. I didn't understand before, I never got it. But I do now...I do and it's something I can't put into words.

I'm not sure anything could happen that would make me stop the world I'm spinning in now.

In other words

I run a restaurant, a restaurant with my family. My hands have heat blisters on them often from working the line. I put in 12-14 hour days, 7 (sometimes thankfully 6) days a week. I deal with customers, I deal with employees. I have a million dollars on the line, and plenty more after to worry about everything I own. I have three hungry, slobbery, attention needing dogs at home...not to mention a house to take care of. The list goes on

Let's just say...pressure...stress? No biggie. I can put a lot on my plate, and [possibly] not loose my mind. To say whether it's been lost or not already is the question. Anyways, the hardest and most terrifying thing I will ever have to do is fall in love. It's the easiest and hardest thing, all at once, a million miles an hour.

Time to catch your breath? Forget it. A feeling that you may not crash and burn? Nope, no mercy. The feeling of your stomach not being filled with bugs? Don't even think about it. The notion your feet are on the ground? Haha, cute. But Happiness? You bet. An overwhelming feeling of complete content? Yep. Smiling all the time, for no reason other than reading a funny text two days ago? Okay yeah...a lot of that.

It's hard for us as humans to admit our real feelings. I've thought about this a lot, being a psy major, why the biggest human flaw is not being honest, with yourself or anyone else. Fear of being recognized as a real person, with feelings. NO WAY! Can't be one of those!

We would rather do things that make us feel terrible than to do something that makes us happy. Take someone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol for a second. They drink or whatever because they are sad, and whether they admit it or not their addiction makes it worse, not better. But in order to get over addiction, they need to do things that make them feel good about life. Taking a nice hike, finding passions, finding love. Do they want to do those things? Of course not. Falling in love scares everyone, even the best. Or it's possible it's just the falling out of love that scares everyone, but inevitably that causes falling in love to be scary as well. Every person you meet you will either know forever, or you will part ways...there is no other option.

This is turning into a rant. Me for one? I'll pick being happy, I will pick being happy over being hurt in the past, and I will pick you...every time.

Sometimes life isn't what you expect. There are those times where life doesn't meet your expectations, but this isn't one of those times.

Sometimes your life can change in a moment, and sometimes a moment can change your life. You don't know how you know, you just do. Like the time you met your best friend. You didn't know you were looking, but your found him. You found him, and you fell in love with him, all you had to do was look at him and know you would never be without him. He's Oak, he's your great dane mastiff, and you haven't known a love so unconditional.

It was never hard for me to believe everything happens for a reason. Everything has always had a purpose. And purpose has always been a part of life.
