"After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul.

And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning and company doesn't mean security.

And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't promises.

And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes ahead, with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans, and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. .

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to leave you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure; You really are strong, you really do have worth. With every goodbye you learn."

AFTER A WHILE (Veronica Shoftshall, 1971)

Damage Done
About hurting someone. Sticking by your decisions can be hurtful. That hurt runs deep, despite confident appearances.

Ugly Truth
A dark room is used as an analogy of the ugliness of truth. Do we really want to know? Or is it easier to be oblivious? It can also be interpreted as being in a situation you do not wish to be in, where it is easier not to see. It could also be read as referring to the deliberate blindness of humanity as a whole. Or whatever else you can take from it...

Delicate Hope reviews
Someone who has been burned would be careful to place themselves in the same situation. But you showed me it's ok to dream. There is a glimmer of hope, but the softest gust of wind could blow out that candle.

Freedom reviews
About breaking a bond with anything you can relate to- family, a lover, a drug, a routine. Breaking any bond brings fear, pain and uncertainty. But on the other hand, it can be seen as freedom. Are you flying or falling?

Essentially, it's about recognizing that you are hiding beneath others' expectations of you, and hiding beneath harsh words and coldness to hide the damage within. We are expected to conform, but when we do, we are no longer unique, no longer original... and the words no longer come.

Love is undeniable, even though it's unseen. With all the uncertainty and doubt in this world, love is a belief worth holding on to.
