The world is a crazy circus and we choose whether we hold the whip or hide in the cages. We can decide whether we want to entertain or be entertained. 

I’ve always wanted the best of both worlds. 

I want the hugs, the kisses, the warm whispers in the night.
I want the fresh air, the freedom, enough space to feel just right. 

I chase after mistakes as if they’re the only substance able to sustain me. I let myself fall deeper and deeper till I can’t find my way back, knowing full well there’s no one on the other side to catch me. 

There’s no happy ending. There are no happy endings in life. There’s only death, and what comes after.
