98 (who?)
The day you signed the recruitment forms
You said you felt like you'd sold your soul.

But you cried the night before basics
So I knew it was still in there

But somewhere in the marching
And the running and the shouting,
The gunshots and the dust and blood—


It was lost.

You were lost.

Show me the contract
And I'll sign away my soul

Because we used to say we'd brave hell together
If it meant we'd never be apart

And I won't risk heaven
If you might not be waiting
I choose this.

"All because of you, I believe in angels. Not the kind with wings, no not the kind with halos. The kind that bring you home when home becomes a strange place. I'll follow your voice. All you have to do is shout it out,"

your writing always gives me chills down my spine and up to my hair because its so... i'm wordless.
:)its taking me a while to get through all your poems - i'm sorry i'll get there soon!
Please take your time! They're not going anywhere, ya know ;)

It means a lot to me that you'd take the time to read through all of my poems. It's quite an endeavor ^^

:) well you're poems are something special and i really, i dont think like or enjoy is really the right word but, is i have said MANY times before, they're powerful and they make me feel that perhaps some of your power may seep in to me, although that sounds weird and rather selfish.... thank you for writing them, they mean so much to me and im sure everyone else who reads them!

but dont worry i'll grab my plith hat and set out on this endevorous quest with full spirit!
I have to say, your comment really made my day. I'm so happy that my writing makes you feel strong. I love that, actually, and it's not selfish at all :tighthug:
Oh good! i had a bit of trouble deciding if i wanted to post it or not and in the end figured i might as well because its always nice to know that your helping someone right from the horses mouth :) so i'm very glad i did! and even more glad that i made your day ^-^

At the time, it was terribly romantic. Now it's a bit romantically terrible :shrug:
