7. Jasper's Song

Rating 0/5   Word Count 488   Review this Chapter

You could've bowed out gracefully
But you didn't
You knew enough to know
To leave well enough alone
But you wouldn't
I drive myself crazy
Tryin' to stay out of my own way
The messes that I make
But my secrets are so safe
The only one who gets me
Yeah, you get me
It's amazing to me

I remember the rain, how cool it was against my skin, and how fresh it smelled. How clean it was. I remember brushing the droplets from my shirtsleeves, knowing that I would have to feed again, and soon.

Stepping into that dark, crowded bar had seemed like a bad idea. It was warm, the sound of blood pulsing through veins filling my ears, like my own heartbeat. I remember scanning the room, searching out a victim. I remember my eyes landing on you instead.

How every day
Every day, every day
You save my life

You saved my life. I don’t know what would have happened if you hadn’t been there that day. If you hadn’t pulled me up out of the gutter, and shown me everything I could be. You just held out your hand.

“You kept me waiting long enough!” you said.

And I was so thunderstruck by that. You knew what I was, all the trouble I was in, and you still took my hand and led me out of that place.

I come around all broken down and
Crowded out
And you're comfort
Sometimes the place I go
Is so deep and dark and desperate
I don't know, I don't know

You know how hard this all is for me. How hard I have to try everyday. You’re the reason, the only reason, that I am who I am. That I can stay true to myself, and hold onto the threads of who I used to be.

You brought me to this place, where we can just be. Where a family can, against all odds, be formed. Each of us has a story, each of us is a broken link, but somehow we’ve made a chain again. You brought me to this, where I can keep a hold on the peices of sunlight that were so hidden that day.

How every day
Every day, every day
You save my life

Sometimes I swear, I don't know if
I'm comin' or goin'
But you always say something
Without even knowin'
That I'm hangin' on to your words
With all of my might and it's alright
Yeah, I'm alright for one more night-

One day at a time, you’re saving me. Through each minute, each kill, each breath, you keep me grounded, keep me whole. I thank God for you every day. I love you. You are my saving grace. I may be battle scarred, but I still need that shoulder, that strong place. And you’re always there.

Every day
Every day, every day, every day
Every day, every day
You save me, you save me, oh, oh, oh
Every day
Every, every, every day-

Every day you save my life

You save my life.
