Stop setting yourself
on fire for someone who
stays to watch you burn.
My problem is that I fall in love with words, rather than actions.
I fall in love with ideas and thoughts, instead of reality.
And it will be the death of me.
I prefer this version over the one on the album because you can not only see Drake’s emotions , but actually FEEL it through his voice and gestures . Just , powerful .
This will forever be my fave Rihanna song & her best song , in my opinion .
James wrote his ass off with this one .
Writing this in-class essay about him was therapeutic for me in ways I did not expect & fully grasp until I read it again after I got it back .
My English professor told us the prior class session that we were going to have an in-class writing assignment . She didn’t mention what the theme would be , so we had to think about it on the spot after she told us .
She revealed that we were to write about a person that has had an influence in our lives .
Naturally , he happened to be the first person (outside of my family) that I thought about .
So , without hesitation , I wrote down what having him in my life has taught me & how he’s influenced me .
I often wondered why our paths crossed , but now when I reminisce , the more I think that it was fate .
He was meant to be in my life for a certain period of time to help me grow and learn .
Those lessons were both good and bad , but I’m thankful for them the same .
I needed to go through those growing pains in order to learn more about myself and what I wanted .
All in all , I’m thankful that he was a part of my life because I honestly don’t know who I would be without the lessons that he’s taught me .
For that , I’m forever grateful .
So , thank you .
What if there was a machine that slowed down time & allowed us to linger infinitely in a moment of our choice ?
Don’t be so vain to think that you ruined me,
that you wrecked me,
I am the only one who has the power to do that.
I loved you, and I ruined myself,
I wrecked myself,
I destroyed myself.
And I will keep doing so for as long as I am breathing.
