❝you started a fire in her soul
but tomorrow came
and you left her shivering in the cold
so she gathered what little embers left of her
as she carefully whispered love to her dying self
now she's a burning forest, as bright as the sun
and all you could is look at her with awe,
for you'd never imagined that a girl
looking so fragile and naive,
would one day become a fire
that you could never ever put out.❞

- cynthia go, forest fire

❝a day will come when your days will be unbearably too long, your nights will be too quiet, and the floor will feel cold on your skin, and you won't any other choice but to pick yourself up, kick your feet up, and rise up again.
because really, how long will you stay down, waiting, crying, and moping around when you're the only one who can decide to save yourself?❞

- cynthia go, rise up

❝i was taught young how to be stone-cold, self-reliant, to hold myself high and poised, with a ready smile and a subtle charm ready to conquer the world. so i learned from early on to only cry behind closed doors, on dim lights, without sound, to howl in pain silently, to break down without anyone knowing, and to never ask for help.
because when no one sees you suffering, do you really suffer? much like, when a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? i can always just pretend that whatever pains me never happened, and i can always go back and face the world pretending i'm okay.❞

- cynthia go, if a tree falls in a forest

❝you came to me armed with honeyed voice, and sweet words, and i couldn't help but fell for it. but lies after lies, and your once sweet words now taste stale on my lips and bitter on my heart. i should have realized that a long time ago, the devil came to eve armed with just a serpent tongue, speaking words laced with honey coated lies, and the whole world suffered when she fell for it, the same way i suffered when i fell for you. love, you were my secret sin, my own bittersweet destruction. i cradled you for so long, but not anymore.❞

- cynthia go, you lied more than you loved

❝the first time we touched, it's as if a whole new world of galaxies had opened up, the universe conspired, the stars approved, the moon stopped hiding just to peer at us from above, and for the first time, finally, finally, something felt right.❞

- cynthia go, the first time we touched

❝i find my place
in between your arms,
in between your tender kisses
and soft whispers of 'it will be alright',
in between the warmth of your embrace,
and the scent of your neck,
and the fierceness of your touch,
i find my place lost inside your soul.❞

- cynthia go, home

❝❝why do you never write about me?❞ i asked him one time while he was writing.

he looked at me and sighed, ❝you write about me.❞

he smiled sadly, shaking his head. ❝i never write about the things i already had. i write about things i never had, or will never have.
you know how we, writers, usually do that.❞ he looked at me, eyebrows raised, as if daring me to say something. ❝i never write about things i'll make sure to keep, forever.❞

he stood from where he was sitting, ❝and you, i will make sure to make you mine, and keep you mine, i will make sure not to lose you so i would never see the day that my heart needs to bleed the pain into words from not having you in my life.❞

he cupped my face in his hands. ❝i will never write about you. you are mine.❞❞

❝he traces tiny little circles on the lines of my palm, looking all serious.

❝can you really read palms?❞ i ask.

❝yes,❞ he says.

❝what's my future then?❞

and i swear, his eyes light up like a thousand fireflies, and a smile crosses his lips for the first time.
