The Bargain






















He gave me that night back and this time, I told you the truth. We talked and held each other till the sun came up. And as I went to hell, the devil asked me if it was worth it. I said yes. Yes it was.

I also know it would be worth it...

I read this and cried because I know that if I had the same option I would take it, and I would tell the devil the same thing. I actually wish I did have that option

Oh the trades we make. Truth sometimes comes at the highest cost, but it's an offer you just can't refuse.

This saddens and confuses me.
My heart struggles with what my answer to the devil would be....

Sadly I would make this bargain. Even sadder is the fact that there are several potential nights to make it about.

This inspires me to be honest the first time around when we have that conversation both of us know is coming.

No regrets. I'm as ready as I'll ever be. I really hope you tell me what I long to hear.

For some reason, I remember a certain line in the film "City of Angels."

I love this post. It really is worth it.

the day i forgave you is the day i lost my soul

the day that you told me the truth
was the day you shattered my heart

we carefully put it back together again,
but it has never really been the same

the day that i gave you a second chance
was a giant leap of faith, of hope, of love

a surface wound is easy to heal
but an internal one eats you from the inside out

nothing is as burdensome as a secret
nothing is as hurtful as being on the receiving end

i don't blame you, i blame me
i'm the one who stayed

true love will never last here?
unconditional love will fall apart

i know this*

i took the trade off with the devil. stared at his eyes and even said, "see you later."

and so i went back to hell again and again. i did it all for love and will do it again.

it is worth it.

how i wish i could let you see
how you are hurting me now...
you kept on saying, we can't do this..that there's nothing i should really wait for..that i should just stop and let you go...
what else do you want me to prove to
you?..you know for a fact that there was never a second that you left my thoughts..
i always hope that one day, we could actually put these fantasies
to an end..and make it real..
and if ever that moment comes, i can't promise you anything but i'd give the best of my entire being..
the hurt that owns your heart right now may take some time to heal.............but i know in God's time it will..just please,
let's give this a chance..stop telling me about your hopeless premonitions for the both of us..
stop hurting me...don't push my love away...please*...='(

i tried.
it really was never worth going to hell and back for.

he lied to me anyway.

nina said...

I don't know... Why would you choose to go to hell when somewhere out there you can be in heaven?

Beautiful. One of my pleasefindthis faves.

How long can i go on like this?


I miss you. But i never had anything to miss, neither did you.

But then again, only one could understand. Because in the end, you only meet the right person once. So my answer to the devil would be "Hell yes."

This made me cry. I've been reading your blog for days, and I can't get enough. I love it. Beautiful.

The devil asked me if it hurt when I fell
I said: "It was worth it to see her."

So I climbed the ice caps
and ran through fire and soot
I tripped over demons who I was told were 'good for me'
I won a chess match with the gatekeeper and still fell deeper
It's not always a straight path
I kept my eyes on the light inside
I found new trepidation, in the eyes of doubt
Unfortunately they are one's I can't see without.
But doubt holds hands with hope, so we climbed together.

I saw my demons
They said I might suffer
I said at least it's worth it.

I kept walking.
I found the gate
The demons walked behind me; laughing, criticizing, reminding
me of every mistake. Screaming. Gleaming.
I said slowly and calmly.
"Thank you for teaching me."

They unzipped their jackets, and were angels I was always threatened by
but were ready to undertake, make, meet me, my teachers.

They open the gate.

I found you again. You were waiting with roses.
I noticed, for the first time, your scales and white, white wings.
