You can’t have my heart.
+ “Do you hear that? It’s the sound of battles fought and lives lost. It once pained me to know that I am the cause of such despair. But now their cries give me strength. Beauty is my power.”
I once had a wife princess. When I came back from the wars, I carried with me the stench of death and the hunger of the lost. I loved her more than anyone and anything and she was just gone. And I became myself again, the self I never cared for, until you. You remind of her, her heart, her spirit but now you too have gone and you both deserved better.
I had a wife once - I let her out of my sight and she was gone. I became myself again, a self I never cared for. Until you. You remind me of her. Her heart, her spirit. But now you too have gone. You both deserve better and I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I’ve failed you.
