Maybe there is hope living somewhere in this world

In your laugh

In my laugh

In the glitter in your eyes

In the kiss I receive on the top of my head

In love, the one thing people are trying to get rid of in this world

But you can’t have a humanity without love

Because without love, we are only bare branches on shaking trees

Ready to collapse onto the floor below

And if no one is around to hear it,

Did it ever really fall in the first place?
