The Sun Will Freeze Before I Do
















I promised a lot.

But never that I wouldn't get back up after you knocked me down.

Never that my broken remains wouldn't catch fire. 

Never that I wouldn't burn through the ice and snow one more time.

And you can slam your glaciers into to me, so slowly, and even though they hurt, I will not go numb from the cold, I will not pass out from the pain, I will look up at you and the world and whisper through bloody teeth

"More..."

These icebergs aren't mine they were passed on to me from another.

Your fire burns brighter and hotter than any I've seen before. It is too hot for me to comprehend, almost too hot for me to believe.

This is a test to see if you can weather extremes. When you pass, I will I know I can trust you to be consistent...to be there for me...to know the real me.

Here is my promise to you. When my fire, my true nature, is exposed I promise to take on the world with you. Instead of begging for more alone, I will take your hand. We shall stand together, face the world with defiance, and command it to bring it. Knowing we can burn it to the ground on a whim.

Instead we will melt its glaciers, and show it love like it's never seen.

I am rooting for you. Hang in there. This won't last forever. The prize you are working toward will. though.

Your writing is absolutely eloquent.

I think this piece is my new favourite.
Sometimes, when pain does not subside,
We make more, want more. Need more.

USE ME AS YOU WANT
PULL MY STRINGS JUST FOR A THRILL
AND I KNOW I'LL BE OKAY
THOUGH MY SKIES ARE TURNING GRAY
I WILL NEVER LET YOU FALL
ILL STAND UP WITH YOU FOREVER
ILL BE THERE FOR YOU THROUGH IT ALL
EVEN IF SAVING YOU SENDS ME TO HEAVEN

Collect my hurt, pluck a shred of care or take yet another piece of my heart......... No. Thank you for pushing me away for the very last time. It was about time. Consider me a stranger. Consider me gone.

Stop writing to me on here!!!!! NO MORE. This the very last message to you. I'm done.
