You say things affect me easily

 

“You say things affect me easily

 You say I take everything seriously

 

 But darling how can I discuss weather

 when there are so many things to talk about

 like my fears, my imperfections and

things that make me feel strong?

 

 How could one not observe

 the shift in someone’s features and the

 sparks in their eyes when they talk

 about the things they love

 and the things that make them happy?

 

 How could one not think

 that it’s wonderful how something

 melancholic and dark could also

 be pleasant and beautiful after

 listening to a Lana Del ray song?

 

 You say things affect me easily

 You say I take everything seriously

 

 But darling how could one

 not admire someone for still

 being soft and warm in this world

 that is mostly hard and cold?”
