i'm souled out.

Message from Writer

they ask you to be the hero, their precious chosen one, to be forever captured on a twisted throne of gold, draped in a cloak that's soaked with blood, crowned with a circlet of bone. to accept their praise, their prophecy, their hopes and dreams, is to allow yourself to be shackled to this plane of existence for eternity. your life is no longer your past, only the expectations of others. to be the hero is to put lives above your own, the greater good above those you love. there is no winning for a hero. for a hero, there is only pain.

every message you send is a small blessing

you send me messages at 4 a.m.
and i wake up hours later,
pouring over the way you cried
when they told the man his son died.

and i shoot you a text at 8:09
as i drain a cup of hot chocolate,
asking how the killer's doing.
he's fine, you reply. but not for long.

our conversations end at 11 p.m.
with me finally saying goodnight,
knowing you well enough that
you'll be awake for three hours more.

shoot me a text;
i promise i'll be there.

    i love the casual love in this... could be a song
    reminds me of "Tuesdays" by Jake Scott (it's such a romantic and sweet and simple song, and he's so aesthetic, and he's my latest discovery—hesitate and t-shirt are amazing and his cover of all too well is precious)
