“So let me get this straight. I need to stay with you”
“That’s an understatement. You need to get even closer than you are now.”
“Until when exactly?”
“Could be a real long time. Depends on life. I can promise it won’t be boring, though”
“Knowing you, I’m not surprised. Okay, Reverend, I do.”
That time when you were it, yeah remember that time?
All you wanted to do was not be it!
Give your left arm to be it now, wouldn’t you.
Didn’t think he would say that
Under normal circumstances, I would be amazed
Here and now, it seems par for the course
Looking to try to change the past
And not living in the now
That is a recipe for disaster
Even if it would cleanse the bitter taste from your mouth
Pushing the limits of human endurance
Asking for more than the body wants to give
It lets you know when you’ve gone over the threshold
Now what you do when that happens is up to you
