Do I Dare?
(I was reading t. s. eliot’s “The Long Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” and it inspired me. I took exerpts and wrote this piece that I consider more poetry. The poem is lengthy, but it’s inspired by the death and fear of war, the fear of growing old and becoming vulnerable, and the fear of truly being loved. I thought these all applied stunningly to Bucky. So I did a Bucky fic again.

Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.
It had taken the briefest of moments for your entire world to change and shatter. A simple choice, a simple decision, one that you could never have predicted the outcome to. But you had known that standing and doing nothing would have pained you more. In that moment where everyone around you had run desperately, you had stood and watched. You had watched everything fall apart in a matter of seconds and in those seconds you were defined.
