She came trembling up the stairs eyes wide hands clutching her hair, I asked “what's wrong, what's going on?” She said “nothing can be done.” The tears poured down her face, something had stolen her light. She looked at me and said “nothing can save us, it wants us dead.”
“Darling as the man who loves you I know what I must do...grit my teeth, clench my fists, and invite this Hell through our door.”
“YOU OBVIOUSLY DON'T UNDERSTAND, I'M THE DOUBT, THE FEAR IN YOUR HEAD. YOU POUND YOUR DRUMS AND SUMMON YOUR VALOR, BUT I SEE THROUGH YOU.
I SEE THE SHAME YOU LIVE WITH, A MOMENT'S REGRETS AT THE FOREFRONT OF YOUR MIND. I KNOW WHY YOUR HEART RACES WITH DISTANT VISIONS OF BETRAYING MANKIND.”
“I'VE BEEN WITH YOU SINCE YOUR SEED WAS SEWN AND I'VE WITNESSED EVERY STONE YOU'VE THROWN. I KNOW WHAT KEEPS YOU UP AT NIGHT AND WHAT KEEPS YOUR DREAMS FROM TAKING FLIGHT.”
“I EXIST TO DESTROY ANY NOTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE OF BEING A HERO OR MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD. YOU OPENED YOUR DOOR WITH ARROGANCE AND INSOLENCE READY TO SWING OUT OF PRIDE AND FEAR AND IN DOING SO SEALED YOUR FATE.”
“Since you know me so well, hear this and feel it as I do: you've threatened murder, you've wrought terror, you've tried to dismantle me from mine. With the conviction of a desperate man I have no other choice but to fight, fight.”
