Dismantling my dented armor,
The line dividing shame and honor
You could take me in your arms,
or you could take me down.
There I stand within your sights,
Spots exposed beneath spotlights
If you plan to to me harm,
You could do it now.
Waiting, wondering– what’s your move?
My skin to scar me or to soothe
Careful of the things you touch,
You might leave a mark.
End predictions start to tug me,
I should go before it’s ugly
How much of me is too much
for you to know my heart?
Debating closing/staying open
Be rebuilt or be re-broken
One false step, and I could blow it–
the painful plunge to spill me.
Ready for the looks and labels,
Any bullet will be fatal
Tense before the final moment:
Will you fill or kill me?
Can you rec any soul mark AUs where Steve and Tony actually end up together? I love pining and UST but I'm sick as fuck of these fics where some tragic circumstance (CW, misunderstanding, etc) keeps them apart or one realizes it and the other doesn't and just GIVES UP. My emotional state is so done w/ this. TIA!
