Everything that Catches my Attention

Be Still Your Heart (by Rylan Hunter)

Be Still Your Heart

The stars, in their jealous envy, hid like cowards behind the clouds when you gave me your heart. I don’t blame them. You were that last patch of unmelted snow clinging to life against the soil that would easily give you up. Foolish earth. I never wanted to see you cry but those tears were worth every salty drop when you finally let go and peace painted you a new face. Stunning snowdrift … you doubted my passion but I forgave you the moment you found the strength to whisper I’m sorry as your icy pureness gave way to streaks of scarlet shame. How could I continue to hold on to my rage as I held your heart in the palm of my hand, the steaming slick liquid dripping down my wrist as the final spasms melted away with your forever sleep. I knew that everything would be all right and, with a kiss to each closed eyelid, I bid my torment farewell and slid back into the shadows with your love. The earth can have the snow, the stars can have the night … and I will always have your heart.
