Unfinished Business

Sit still under the sheets
I’m on the wrong side because we know you sleep better to the left.

I’m counting eight from 1 on fingers,
brushing a vacancy I can’t coordinate when the sun shines divergence
and you can catch dreams under a different light.

Willed sentiments haunt beneath lamp posts
as consequence hums from the street
and I’m trying to find a harmony for the footsteps up to here
but all I hear is now
and the hum
as it’s undone.

For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one.

Favorite Battelstar Galactica season 3 Episode: Unfinished Business

I have a lot of favorites of the whole series and a few for each season. And this happens to be the one for Season 3. I just love it as a whole, for all the quotes, the scenes, that peek we have into something that was “unseen”, how their minds go back there from time to time and when sun light plays with Mary just gracefully! This episode is the perfection for Space Parents.


unfinished business (a ‘work’ extra)

number five(ish)? four-and-a-half? we’ll go with the latter // blame Eliza @roselirry // read ‘work’ here first // more of Teyana & Niall here

“Niall, what is it?”

Groggy, Teyana resists the tug of Niall’s hand as he tries to pull her up from the mattress. She’s been asleep for what feels like five minutes, though it’s surely been longer since she drifted after she and Niall made love a second time, and she groans as she clutches at the sheets with desperate hands. But Niall is stronger, and seemingly determined, bringing her to her feet with ease.

Niall,” she whines, before leaning into him, unsteady on her legs, “what time is it?”

“Midnight,” he replies. He wraps an arm around her waist to steady her, presses a kiss to her forehead.

Teyana lets out a heavy sigh. “Why are we up at midnight, Niall?”

There’s a pause. Teyana tilts her head up to search for Niall’s eyes in the dark.

“Unfinished business,” he replies.
