Timebomb love Essay

Tick.

Tick.

Tick.

My love for you was like a time bomb

I kept hearing it coming",

Tick.

I didn’t run away

Tick.

I kept hearing it

And the closer we got the louder it grew.

Tick

Tick

Tick

I learned to ignore the noise

But it never went away

Tick

I loved you

Tick

I was head over heels

Tick

And you were distant

Tick

Love couldn’t be our common denominator

But i kept on running the calculations

And everytime it came back with the same answer for x

That no matter what i did

Even if you weren’t in the equation

Tick

The only thing i was trying to find was your love.

Tick

Tick

Tick

My love for you was like the sunrise in the east

It only seemed like the beginning

And the pity i mistook for love from you was the sunset in the west",

Leaving the sky above with only darkness

My love for you was like a time bomb.

Tick

Tick

Tick

I kept hearing it

Like it was strapped onto my backpack

I walked the halls

Thinking it was gone

Then right before i got to class

Tick

Tick

Tick

It was wired into my brain

I could feel the current flowing through me

Hallucinations of your love

Carried me to sleep

And nightmares of reality woke me up in the morning

Tick

I started cutting at the wires

Trying to stop the noise

But little did i know

They were just for decorative purposes

Tick

I ripped it off my bag and threw it on my desk

Examining it closely

Tick

The time seemed to slow

I felt as though it was nearly gone

And then i saw you singing along to what i knew as your old favorite song

Tick

Tick

Tick

My love for you was like the moons love for the stars

No matter how big i thought i was

No one was looking to the black canvas of the sky at midnight to see me

They were in amazement of you

My love for you was like a time bomb

It blew my heart to shreds

Left me with shrapnel scars from the inside out

With a croak in the back of my throat

And the thunder clouds in my chest you can sense right before a storm of tears

There was only one way to put me back how i was

For the laws of time to be broken",

Allowing me to move backwards freely

My love for you was like a time bomb

Nothing can change the way it causes havoc

dealing with the pain of memories

Forced me to learn how to take away things from my love for you

That life is beautiful regardless of who’s next to you

That love is not something only achievable once

That no matter how lonely it seems with that ticking in my ear

Everyone has a tick for someone, and one day after many explosions

There will be someone who’s tick for me is as constant as my tick for them

That we can explode together and find beauty in the chaos

My love for you was like a time bomb

And speaking as the psychopath that created that bomb

I can't act as if i didn’t enjoy a single moment of it

I loved my love for you

I won’t ever forget the love unshared

But i can’t keep letting the tick control me so i must move on

sorry if it seems as if im leaving you in the rubble

But there's a life to be had outside of this bubble

I must let the idea be free swimming in the sea of all loves left behind

Time bombs can’t last forever

Yet as i conclude my song i can’t help but hope somehow it wins you over

Tick

Tick

tick.
