He remembered the forceful hand that cast him to the earth. He’d fallen like a shooting star, his flesh burning until his wings fell away. Pain was something he had never known before. But even worse than the physical affliction was the knowledge that he would forevermore be denied Heaven.” (J. C. Burnham)
This music, That smell, These words, That look, The glimpse, A suffocating happiness, That letter, Friendly fear, Unstoppable indulgent, This Acceptance of failing sneaking in, A soul that weight too much to carry, These words again, Whispers that has no echo, These words, That smell again, A Snowy fire burning the trees, I see smile, What with these words, A deadly humour screaming, laugh up, man up, Ravens, Wolves, pretend, That feeling he had that everything he was going to say was either too loud or too strange for a world in which people did normal things, he didn’t like having to convince anybody that he was good. That was where they were supposed to start.
Do you think he is easy?!, Same words… Guard up, Wake up, and he is board, Here he is, Where is here?! Guard up, Same words, And he is bored
Is he happier now?! He doesn’t know, Ask him in another decade!”
