Until Then, I Promise…


I watch you lying awake at night,

in your bed with your eyes shut tight…

And I wonder what you're thinking about.

·-—0—-·

If I could fix this cursèd mess,

taste the sweetness of success,

I wouldn't be troubled day in, day out.

·-—0—-·

"Go to sleep," I want to say.

I know we'll always find a way.

But wait for tomorrow, when it's daylight.

·-—0—-·

I hate our dad, I miss our mother,

and I miss your smile, little brother.

I swear I'll someday make everything right.

·-—0—-·

I'll do my best to reach our goal:

complete this quest, pay the toll.

·-—0—-·

What will I give? What will it cost?

Will both of us live? Or might one be lost?

·-—0—-·

You're stronger than I could ever be,

in mind and maybe emotionally.

But I can still kick your butt when we spar.

·-—0—-·

I was wrong, the fault is mine,

and yet you forgive me; say it's fine.

I wish you could see the blessing you are.

·-—0—-·

So please don't let it get you down.

There's good reason for your renown.

And I'll trust you to know what we should do.

·-—0—-·

I'm being watched, my movements tracked.

I think you know my slumber's an act.

So I'll sleep now; I never could fool you.

·-—0—-·

I'll work and fight 'til we reach our goal:

unite my body with my soul.

·-—0—-·

How much will we give? How much will it cost?

The answer allusive, my fingers are crossed.

·-—0—-·

Until then...
~

I promise...

·-—0—-·

I'm looking forward to the day…

Just be patient, I'll make sure…

·-—0—-·

…we get our bodies back.

A/N: Criminal author sneaking back, having gone AWOL. Reason? Combo of end-of-school stress, bad organization skills, and a little thing called Writer's Block. I hope this poem thingy will help clear it up. But I haven't abandoned TSTC, I swear. I've just been too busy/feeling guilty to get on recently.

Otherwise...review? ¿Por favor? ^^"


Eᴅɪᴛ 5/11/12: Thank you, Immortal Fallen Radiance, for the advice.


Nᴏᴛᴇ: "Cursèd" is cursed with two syllables. But the stress isn't on the second syllable, that'd be curséd. The same thing works forblessed and blessèd
