    oh wow, i really like this one. i dont completely understand it either, but that makes me love it even more. i love the emotion behind the words, like your so devoted to each thing, its just breath taking. i really like the style because its so simple that its makes the meaning stand out more. like the saying 'i love you', but with your style, you dont need to say much more because of the power behind the words.
