Drops of rain

if i am your strength

don’t make me weak


if you love me

for this and/or that

then to try to change those?!

it will kill me and your love


it hurts

tearing love apart

but when we bind up the wounds

it hurts, less


i tell you everything

i tell no lies

now i understand everything

she said. Β it was true, i knew

but as for me

i don’t, do, don’t


i do

do you?


then i do, too

take, give


screaming silently

can it still be salvaged?

not easy

tread gently

and carefully

grass is beautiful

we should not trample –
