Resignation to Inevitabilty
Why are we so quick to wish a longer life?
What does a man benefit from living another 20 – 30 years?
His body weakens; his senses dull.
All he strove for all… his dreams – they were never to be.
He goes along thinking he can make a difference, that he makes the choices; he has no control.
The fork in the road is an illusion; he will always choose the wrong path.
That realization ever so slowly sinks in, after so many years.
To believe he chooses a path only leaves him to experience the suffering of guilt and regret when it inevitably turns out to be wrong.
It results in his shoulders sinking further, his chin hanging lower.
Outward signs of a soul that is far too weary.
There's always tomorrow, they tell him.
He hears and nods.
But he knows – no, there is only reliving today – the pain. The emptiness. The hopelessness.
Yet he goes on. Not towards a goal, towards a happy ending.
He knows there will be no happy ending; only a blessed ending to the monotony of ut

I Did This
I quenched the fire in your heart
Now I deserve nothing more
I earned your indifference
Now I deserve nothing less
I treated you like a fool
Now I now dance on your strings

A Beacon
Alone, adrift on an empty sea
No direction, nothing but the fog on all sides
With a heavy heart I sail on
Holding on to… hope?
Is that a glimmer?
It's faint, distant perhaps, but real
Maybe if I steer towards her…
Getting brighter - my heart swells
Where does it beckon? Am I… home?

... again
We'd meet for the first time… again
You’d be interested
You’d flirt and wear perfume
But I wouldn’t notice
One day, it’d sink in
And I’d find you intriguing
I’d ask if you’d be at the party
Hoping you’d say yes
We’d talk nervously
Then Bailamos would play
I’d ask you to dance
And you would say yes
We’d move with the music
And we could fall in Love… again

If you ever
If you ever
want me to watch you bathe
want to again be my fav
If you ever
want to perfume a bear for me
want a shirt that smells like me
If you ever
want to go see Le Mis
want to know what Love is
If you ever
want to dance again to Bialamos
want to hear me say “I love you most”
If you ever
want to whimsically give me a call
want to in love with me again fall
I am here, for you,
Forever, If you ever…

I smile
I smile…
I remember the way you’d greet me
…and I smile
I remember the way you chased me playing tag
...and I laugh
I remember how you sang to me
…and I blush
I remember how you kissed me deeply
…and I sigh
I remember the way you made love to me
…and I ache
I remember you said you’d always love me
…and I cry

I think about all the things
I should've said;
The words I whispered
That I should have shouted
And somedays
I think about all the things
I should've done;
The times I walked
When I should have run
And I believe in
Second chances
And I believe in
Once in a lifetime romances
And I heard the song
So why didn't I dance it?
I frown at myself
For all the times I should have
I sit, recalling
All the times I should have
Told you
The things
All those things
I kept inside
The one's on my sleeve
I tried to hide
All the tears I cry
For those I haven't cried
And I believe in
Second chances
And I believe in
Once in a lifetime romances
And I heard the song loud and clear
Why didn't I dance it?
I should have danced
I should have run
I should have called your name
I should have smiled
I should have...acted
And I believe in
Second chances
And I believe in
Once in a lifetime romances
And if you'll play your song once more
I promise I'll dance it...

Sound the Bugle
I've done myself in and I don't know where to go. Is this the end? The closing credits, armageddon? That's how it feels. I'm without a part of my heart.
Lots of things happened to cause it, and I could blame them on other people. I could say it was just a silly misunderstanding, but that would be lying. The very thing that I did to screw myself over. I could apologize, but what good would that do?
It's my own fault, and I know that. In time, that stabbing pain will fade to a dull throb, but it will never leave. No, and I will always have a seering hole that will continue to grow. A solemn reminder that I could do nothing about it.
I feel empty, emotionless. I can't even cry. I probably wouldn't bleed either. And I'm cold. So cold.
I fear this is it.
Sound the bugle now
Play it just for me
As the seasons change
Remember how I used to be
Now I can't go on
I can't even start
I've got nothing left
Just and empty heart
I'm a soldier
Wounded so I must give up the fight
There's nothing mor

Just Another Day Without You by Misty2007 Just Another Day Without You :iconmisty2007:Misty2007 27 61


Enemy at The Gate was, initially for me, a war movie. It had the Russians trying to save their homeland, desperately holding on against the Germans. It had action, tension in the sub-plot of sniper vs sniper, etc. But in the end, it was just a war movie.

Watching it again years later with my take on life so much changed, i realize now it was a story of life.

You are in circumstances beyond your control - things set in motion long before your arrival on earth.
You imagine you make choices - choices that seem logical or prudent. Choices that end in disaster.

One man was betrayed as a cold, calculating killer. Another as a cold, tyrannical man sending others to their death.
But they were motivated to act thusly based on life viewed in the prism of their experiences, good and bad.

The hero, his friend and the woman they both loved were in the middle of hell.

Yet, one found a way to use his grief at losing the woman to his friend to show his love for his friend by sacrificing his life for him.

The friend used his sacrifice to become the hero he never wanted to be. And he honored his friend's sacrifice by being happy with the woman they both loved.
