time heals the heart

I was a mess
with tattered
pieces of me,
scattered all around
my fragile body.
When you came
and stood in front of me,
you gave me a hand
and helped me to stand
with my own feet,
you said I was
a beautiful scar
that needs curing,
a stunning sun that
was crowded with gray clouds,
a moon that was blinded
by little shining stars.
I let you hold me for a while,
until I finally found myself
healing and falling in love.
When you came I realized
one thing that made me
glad and sad at the same time,
that a person can heal you
with their genuine heart,
yet there’s no assurance
that they will catch you
when you fall
for them so hard.
—  ma.c.a // When You Came, I Thought Love Was Meant to Last

Calm settles in
Where the heavy weight of anxiety
Has since vacated.
Stealing across her skysoul,
A shooting star of peace
Lights up her inner night.
Silence, once oppressive,
Offers contemplation of lovestruck dreams.
Time, gives the promise of healing,
For new life to spring from what once was broken.
Tingling fingers reach for tomorrow
With wide eyed delight
As they brush against unfiltered hopes
Cascading through unfettered desires.
“Dream of me,” she whispers
Sending her heart out into the night
To race along a moonbeam
Until within her love’s heart it alights.

Just imagine how differently things would have gone for the companions without Hawke there, though?

Aveline dies beside Wesley, fighting the darkspawn while protecting the tainted corpse of her husband to the last breath.

Varric goes down to the Deep Roads with Bartrand. If they aren’t all killed by darkspawn without Hawke there to defend them, then Varric faces his brother’s betrayal alone, locked behind the stone walls of an old, silent thaig.

Fenris continues running from Danarius, always looking over his shoulder, always living as prey to the tiger at his back. Eventually, his master catches up with him, and he returns to slavery as a memory-less wraith once again.

Anders goes to the Chantry alone. He fights the Templars there, and doesn’t care, doesn’t bother with healing this time when they put a sword through his heart, because all he can see is that fucking sunburst where it should never be.

Isabela goes to the Chantry alone, too. But instead of Templars, there are pirates, and no one’s at her back to keep the knife from sliding into it.

Merrill is sent away from her clan to Kirkwall, where there are no friends to keep her naivete with city-living from leading her to the Templars’ doorstep. Even if she does manage to avoid them, manages to rebuild her Eluvian - her demon-possessed mentor ends up killing her, in the end.

Sebastian hunts down his family’s murderers. But he is alone, and he is only one man, and he is cut down as he grasps for one more arrow in his empty quiver.

I just. I have a lot of feels about the Kirkwall crew and Hawke.

Can love travel back in time and heal a broken heart? Was it our joined hands that finally lifted Maria’s curse? I’d like to think so. There’s some things, though, I know for certain. Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Plant lavender for luck. And fall in love whenever you can.

It’s a small, broken family. But with the three of us, I know we’ll get along just fine. We still have each other.

Wanting to draw younger Hamadas turned into drawing Tadashi heavily struggling after the loss of their parents, since he was old enough to deal with it. He and Cass had to carry the weight on their own for a good while, since Hiro was still too young to understand (and Tadashi just lied, saying “They’re just on vacation, they’ll be back someday”). He vowed to shoulder it for both he and Hiro, so the poor kid wouldn’t have to be troubled by it when he was young. 

Turns out it was Hiro who ended up easing most of the pain though, huh.

Submission Selfie Sunday

It starts at daylight
I see him
Before my sad eyes
I hear him breathing
Oh lover, need you to lead me
No never thought that you’d leave
That was my veil
That was my time
Once held secret
But now lies
No words can
Heal my heart
Inside I’m broken
Now it’s done
Was she a pretty girl?
Does she have pretty hair?
Was she soft-spoken?
Was there a love there?

Thank you for your words and your selfie submission! We love them!

“Don’t be ashamed to weep; ‘tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”
