The Questions Buildings Ask






















Why did you build me, if all you wanted to do, was knock me down.

Why did you raise me, if all you wanted to do, was bring me low.

Why did you make me, if all you wanted to do, was break me.

I didn't mean to.. I did it out of fear. I can't afford to lose you again.. I'm sorry.

to build a newer one of your old bones that can stand tall when the earth again rumbles and quakes

You said...

I knocked you down out of fear.
I brought you so low out of jealousy.
And broke you out of anger.

And you know what? I don't regret a thing.

Why did you break me if all you wanted to do was make me? Why did you lower your standards and leave when all I ever wanted to do was raise you? Why did you knock us down when all I did was build us? Just us, only you and I. Look up and fill the hole in your heart. Miss me.

My heart has a flower on it, no one waters.

No reason, just fear of getting close to that glass box, fear of pushing that doorbell, fear of seeing you, fear of speaking you, fear of your question.... Who am i? I still don't know the correct answer... How do I get the courage to face you again? How can I be sure if you won't be on business trip? How can I be sure if he is there to take care of the kids?...

I know you want us to be great. I am living in my fears, I want a normal life. Me

One of my biggest fears put into words.

You just cant answer me...
Coz you never prepare one..
All you do just a part of game..
You thought i would never ask because i just another stone..

But i have a heart baby..
And im sorry im cant be part of it anymore..
Bring me down, and someday you will have no more stone to build a building..

I did not knock you down..
you were just too weak to stand on your own...

I did now put you low,
I just soar high when you left me alone...

I did not break you..
don't blame it all to me...

Danielle said...

I guess I should be asking you the same questions...

Why did you come here, when all you wanted to do was to leave?

Who can judge what is right or wrong,
when none of us know for sure,
the depth of thought and feeling
behind another's action.

Perhaps, the foundations needed repair?
Perhaps, our technology has exceeded our humanity?
Perhaps, now we get to see the magnificent view.

Perhaps, only you have the answer?

You have 100% permission to leave.
Please.

The best buildings are made underground. For sure you can't break them.

I will always find a way out. Because that is what I do.
Universe is infinite, so I am.

What are we? Secret lovers?

by any other name said...

"Who are you?"
The only correct answer is for you to show me your face, look me in the eyes.

Don't worry about courage; my love will not fail you.
It does what you need, not what I want. I suppose, I wonder, I wing it.
We swear we don't believe in fate. But, it has its own ideas.

You are there; I am not. But, I'm here when you need me.
We can skip the words until they're ready to spill on their own. Until then, just touch me.

We are not

Perhaps your own fear of being broken has caused you to break me down...

Broken

It's so tricky to fall into the arms of the one in a perpetual game of hide-n-seek. Much less build anew. Help me to find you. (I'll keep looking for you, meanwhile.) ;-) <3

You tried all this and I turned to stone.

I built you, because I was built by you.

I raised you, because I was raised with your affection.

I didn't make you, and especially didn't break you. You did that to your self.

I love you.

If you don't like something, change it. Tell me. You're not a building.

because in the beginning,
you were what i needed.
and what i thought i wanted.

and then you weren't.

"And then you weren't." You thought I wasn't.
