Frost Curse

It fades you know
That feeling of love that consumes you
It's nothing new really, even got a name for it now, infatuation... 

You are not to blame
You became accustomed to loneliness that when she came knocking on your front door, you invited her in and threw away the key, your 'love' was like a tornado, safe on the inside but made a mess of the outside, you are not to blame, she noticed you when no other person could, and now u wonder if you should... tell her how you felt isn't how you feel or just... wait and hope she eventually feels the same about you...

It's nothing new I tell you
Only if you knew
That love isn't the fairytale picture portrayed by movies...
Here you are
Troubled by the Frost Curse
'Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both.'
