get to know me meme: [1/10] relationships: Charlie & Monroe (Revolution)
“Monroe’s deluded. I don’t care how many men he’s got, he’s not getting the Republic back. None of us are gonna be alive that long anyway. But until then, we stay standing, we keep fighting, and we do whatever it takes to win. I didn’t go for Monroe. I went for myself.” 

you think: “the world’s out to get me”
and truth is, you’re right, the world’s after you
it aches — wants needs screams — for your heart
you’ve filled it with such kindness
the world would like to tear it to pieces
spread your heart around until the world’s a little kinder
a little brighter

except that’s not how it works, your heart
was made so kind for only one other
they who touch your heart will find themselves
eaten alive by the thorns in your veins

but then; he dies.
your kindness’ bled out your eyes and behold
a garden of flowers for his grave

he dies. and your heart’s too big to handle the void
inverted, a negative of itself: hatred
deep and wild and hungry, it echoes the howling wolves

the world didn’t get the memo
it’s still out to get you and you’ve a mind to let them try
see who burns first:
the world or a wrathful sister?
