Venus in Capricorn

50 seconds

I always laugh

And say that I’m over love

And pretend not to be sad when you agree.

But the truth is that you make me laugh,

And I might be in love

With you for a long time already.

It’s not your intent,

And I’m willingly in it,

Too scared to lose that precious thing we have.

But if I’m so intent

On keeping us both in it,

Then how will we ever know what we have?

Because I didn’t let you know,

And I never let it show,

And you don’t see us through my eyes, do you now?

But what am I supposed to feel

When everything I feel is real,

And yet you don’t see us through my eyes at all?

Commitment, they say, is a virtue.

But personally, I think that’s true

Only for people like you,

Who don’t see ghosts where there is nothing.

For people like me,

Who are the only ones to see,

Commitment is merely curse and redemption.


Hey there, I'm Nat! I'm the author behind princesandfrogs, and as you can probably guess, I really love writing. So I thought why not share some of my original content here, in this quiet corner of the internet :3 If you'd like to take glimpses through the keyhole of my world, you're welcome to stay! Get yourself a nice cup of tea, and here we go!
