The Celestial Companion






















Still, courage, my friend.
Still, all is not lost and you are not yet done.
Still, there are fires to burn in the darkness and light to cast amongst the shadows.
Still, there are moments that must be taken, fighting and spitting to the ground.
Still, nothing has killed us yet.
Still, the sky smiles on the brave.
Still, have the strength to try and hold the sun in the palm of your hand, once more.
Still, ever burning.
Still, the most beautiful things come from beneath the ground.
Still, the light is cast from the darkest of places.
Still, we labour on under the cover of stars.
Still, we know the truth rides high in our chests.
Still, the world has yet to end, no matter how hard any of us try.
Still.
Until we are still.

I don't know if you ever read any of these comments... but I got a tattoo this morning (10-20-2010) of "Until we are still." I'm in love with it. I think I will send you a picture once it heals nicely.

My boyfriend and I have been going through hard times, due to his mother and her need to control him at all times, added with her absolute disliking of me and her constant hope that he will leave me (even though we're certain that we're soul mates). He turns 18 in May, and on his birthday, he is moving in with me and we have plans to go get tattoos together, and I'm going to get this line: "Still, nothing has killed us yet."

Thank you for the perfect words to sum up my delight in the idea that we will soon be finished with these hard times, and the relief we will feel when our lives are ours, entirely. (:
