I promised a lot.
But never that I wouldn't get back up after you knocked me down.
Never that my broken remains wouldn't catch fire, that I wouldn't burn through the ice and snow one more time, never that my crippled bone won't rise back up, never that my unarmed body won't shoot them down, never through gritted teeth that I will not remind you how much I care.
And you can slam your glaciers into me, so slowly, and even though they hurt, I will not go numb from the cold, I will not pass out from the pain, I will look up at you and whisper through bloody teeth...
Through all of those pains, pause your doings and look up the sky, the constellations are speaking our language, it's written in the stars, miles away from us, yet they understood us more than we'll ever understand our presence.
Should one day you look up and your star has fallen down, you will find mine lying beside yours. The whole world is watching, but this territory, this territory will take you. And this place I'm standing in, beside you, it's worth dying for.
You know what I would do for love. But no one ever asked me how far I would go, for loss.
