A/N: So, after the X Files ends, I'm sitting at home, bored one night, on the phone with my Girlfriend, and she's like, "Honey, you should watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it's a good show. And I'm like, "No." Well, guess who won that argument, just like every argument we have? She did. So here I am, now writing Buffy stories. Read and Review and if you feel the need to flame, do so, it doesn't bother me, as long as its constructive, and not just some stupid flame. And for those of you who don't know, Tara and Willow are gay, so please, don't flame me for liking Tara and Willow.

Dedication: To my Willow. I love you. Thank you for making me believe in myself when I think I have no talent. I love you.


Someday soon, we'll be together

It's the thought that keeps me going

What keeps me away from temptation

It was hard the day you walked out of my life

Walked away without a backwards glance

Telling me that you couldn't help me unless I helped myself

I came back to you, saying I had made a mistake

I was through with the temptations

I was through with the one thing that kept us apart

So, we got back together, with promises

We were closer, and more in love than ever

Until the day my world shattered

You were suddenly gone and I was left alone

So alone, holding only your shell in my arms

Depressed, consumed by grief and guilt for not being able to bring you back

I snapped

I avenged your death

Killed the person who took you away from me

Revenge was mine, or so I thought

Yet, I felt no satisfaction

Killing him didn't bring you back

And I knew you wouldn't approve

Me avenging your death

Even though your life ended in a single moment

So tragically, so senselessly

So, my soulmate, my love

I try to move on from the grief that I am enclosed in

That fills my soul with darkness

I can never forget you

Because forgetting you would be denying that you existed

And I could never do that

To forget that would be like forgetting myself

Someday we'll be together again

Together forever, never apart

It's the thought that keeps me going

The thought that keeps me away from temptation
