Your hand caresses my cheek,
fingertips trailing slowly down my neck to my sides, pulling me in close as you stare into my eyes.
Your look is as beautiful as innocence but hidden within is the seductive cries so malevolent.
I want to drown in the sea of your eyes while your hands guide me to…

To fall together or to stand as one,
The complexes of a heart unsold.
To invest for happiness
To sacrifice for love
To fall together unified as one.
But it is power that tempts
A swaying heart.
Empty promises dealt out
From the start.
To adhere to the force of greed,
Breeds only monsters it seems.
To hunger for vengeance
To yearn for destruction
Just to attempt to gain
Personal satisfaction.
It is for these temptations
Which some may fall.
An unsold heart can doom us all.

Freely we serve
Because we freely love, as in our will
To love or not; in this we stand or fall.

City of Heavenly Fire
—Cassandra Clare
We are all pieces of what we remember. We hold in ourselves the hopes and fears of those who love us. As long as there is love and memory, there is no true loss.
