Lviv Art Palace
I’m always by your side. That’s me shining through your window in the morning, that’s me blowing your hair while you talk on your phone rushing down the street. I give you all I have and you take it for granted. Even my all is not enough for you. You steal the last pieces of me without asking for forgiveness. You’re always busy building the life of your dream. But you don’t realise that one day I’ll get sick of this and I’ll take back everything. Stop. Look what you’re doing. Please, open your eyes.
