(Post inspired by “The Vampire Diaries”)
Where there was once faint smoke,
Now burnt a raging fire
That blazed his heart
And scorched his soul
Every time he closed his eyes
Images of her filled up his mind
Refusing to give up on him without putting up a fair fight
He had told her that he knew nothing about love,
Yet she had decided to challenge his greatest fear
Part of him laughed, thinking that she would lose
Part of him believed that she would find a way
And as he sat down in the bar that night
Sipping on his bourbon
All he could hear was
Sounds of her innocent laughter
Maybe there really was something left inside him.
Something that was worth fighting for.
Something that would give him a reason to flip his switch.
Some “shred of humanity” that his brother was always searching for.
The fire inside him continued to burn wildly.
His heart began to beat a little faster.
He finished his drink and closed his eyes again.
And once he opened them, he found peace.
She had saved him.
And now it was his turn.
