the-penance-and-the-patience

The best penance is to have patience with the sorrows God permits. A very good penance is to dedicate oneself to fulfill the duties of everyday with exactitude and to study and work with all our strength.

#i loved every single thing about this moment #that cat knew #that kara was surprised #that the boys melted into the background as cat spoke #because this isn’t about their friend barry #this isn’t about cat showing off to the people around her #this is about kara and cat #about the secret kara has been keeping (badly) #about cat’s increasing frustration that kara doubts her #doubts that she can put it together (which is bad enough she’s a journalist ffs) #but mostly it’s frustration that kara still doesn’t trust her #that she doesn’t even trust cat with barry’s secret #doesn’t trust her with a secret that’s leaving #a secret that can’t really hurt anyone #cat is FRUSTRATED and she’s hurt #and i love that she starts casually and just wants to let kara know she knows #wants to call her out as much as she dares #because cat is TRYING to give kara space #she wants her secret and she wants it to be given not taken #but that doesn’t mean she can’t push a little #that she can’t punish kara just a little by making her uncomfortable #and so she does #she lists her reasons and lists her facts and tries to shrug it off and in the 3rd gif shakes her head #because it’s silly and barry was transparent but his secret doesn’t mean anything to her #kara’s does #so when she pushes a little too far #makes eye contact and steps closer #and has to look kara in the face as kara continues to lie to her #she gets ANGRY #visibly angry and frustrated and literally snaps at kara #because it’s been weeks of this #weeks of waiting and of being patient and not taking #even though that very thought goes against all of her instincts both personally and professionally #but she’s trying for kara #she’s TRYING #and so she snaps but she pulls back #says ‘now.’ and grounds herself and moves past to something innocuous #tells her ‘feel how good it feels to dial’ #because that is her penance to kara for pushing her too hard in blood bonds #her penance for pushing her away in bizarro #her penance is kara’s job #it’s kara’s safe haven and it’s space and it’s time #it’s the normalcy and comfort that cat knows kara needs to feel secure enough to trust her #cat’s penance is her patience

Closure In Moscow-Dulcinea

I still see your face, you’re safe in my sleep again
(I’m starving for you, but you will never know)
I still see your face, you’re safe in my sleep again
(I’m starving for you, but you will never know)

Closure In Moscow - We Want Guarantees, Not Hunger Pains.

Currently digging this band. Awesome jams.

Dulcinea

Each sporadic time I see you,
I get lost in your embrace,
your embrace is just a greeting,
but I hold you none the less
It’s all I have, and I’m dying for this.

Dearest Dulcinea when your heart’s already full,
where does that leave all the love I have?

I still see your face,
you’re safe in my sleep again
(I’m starving for you, but you will never know)
I still see your face,
you’re safe in my sleep again
(I’m starving for you, but you will never know)

I’d like to hope
But I’m cut to the bone
Let confirmation die and break this engagement
Is it your fault?

I still see your face,
you’re safe in my sleep again
(I’m starving for you, but you will never know)
I still see your face,
you’re safe in my sleep again
(I’m starving for you, but you will never know)

To put it simply
my heart is racing unobserved
You’ll never know.

As your world keeps turning
As your world keeps turning

I can see you bathed in golden light
The rays a final dawn
Touching you in ways I never could
and you’re exalted

I still see your face,
you’re safe in my sleep again
(I’m starving for you, but you will never know)

Each sporadic time I see you, 

I get lost in your embrace, 

Your embrace is just a greeting, 

But I hold you none the less

It’s all I have, and I’m dying for this.



Dearest Dulcinea when your heart’s already full, 

Where does that leave all the love I have?



I still see your face, you’re safe in my sleep again

(I’m starving for you, but you will never know)

I still see your face, you’re safe in my sleep again

(I’m starving for you, but you will never know)



I’d like to hope

But I’m cut to the bone

Let confirmation die and break this engagement

Is it your fault?



I still see your face, you’re safe in my sleep again

I still see your face, you’re safe in my sleep again

As your world keeps turning

As your world keeps turning



I can see you bathed in golden light

The rays a final dawn

Touching you in ways I never could and you’re exalted



I still see your face, you’re safe in my sleep again

(I’m starving for you, but you will never know)

I still see your face, you’re safe in my sleep again

(I’m starving for you, but you will never know)

I still see your face, you’re safe in my sleep again

I still see your face, you’re safe in my sleep again
