I’ll never let you go

I finally understand the phrase ‘if you love someone, set them free. ‘ There comes a time when fighting for what you want just isn’t enough. You’ve been fighting for a long time just to keep them content. keep them happy.But what if you woke up one day and realised, being in their life is the reason they’re unhappy? What if you realised it was because of YOU that they’re now unhappy. You swore to yourself you’d do anything to please them.Anything to make them happy, just as long as they don’t realise they need to find someone better. How do you live with that kind of fear? The fear that one day, they’ll wake up only to realise all that time was time wasted? Would you be able to hear those words? Are you strong enough?

Today, I finally understood the phrase, ‘If you love someone, set them free’.

I’ve also heard, ‘ and if they come back to you, its meant to be. ‘  Is that a lie just to help us cope?

Yours truly,

Painted Shadow.



I stare at walls hoping that something would guide me to another dimension where everything makes sense. I take life as it comes. I reside in which is now known to be the fastest growing city in the Middle East, Dubai. Surrounded by fake greenery and dusty air, I long for rain. I long for rain to drench my very being, untill i feel nothing but clean and revived. I dream of happy things and i know for certain that Peter pan and pixies and fairies and Santa exists. I know. Because theres no point in not believing. Im a child. I am a grain of sand. I am a speckle of dust in this polluted world. I am a spirit roaming the end of the earth, trying to find that wall.
