Your Heart By Emily Bye

Sometimes, you have to sacrifice the luxuries in life, for the people who desperately need you. If I had noticed the passion and kindness of others around me, he wouldn’t have gone.

He was my world, my life revolved around him but I knew he was quickly giving up on me. He was not an object, you cannot love a materialistic object, they do not need love, living beings need love. I found out the hard way. That we’re not immortal. That everything we live for will one-day end with a sudden rush of darkness as the world collapses around us. Entrapment gradually swallowed me as he slowly began to leave, I would feel an emptiness flowing around my body as I, unwillingly, took another, deeper, step in to the world that we know.

Joy would flood the cities which are overcoming; poverty, disease and natural disaster. If only you had him. He was going to be the solution to our problems, he would beat the struggles humanity face today. He was only sometimes found in my life, but when he was, he made the world a better place.

He arrived and disappeared so quickly that I never had the chance to change the world, I was so selfish, arrogant, oblivious to the suffering and pain around me. He gave up on me because I didn’t make a difference. He left me becau
