Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
My idea of the coming of sorrows.

before the blood falls

by thoughtgame2

i am the carrier of this curse
i did not! want it to hurt.
every loved one in my path
even those i knew from birth!
when they look i look away 
as if i dont know what they mean.
when they shout! i grow unworthy
and try my best to leave the scene. 
its important to my muse that i 
leave more  than i keep.
another  form of forward motion
like the  dog that herds the sheep.
far remove from acts of glee
from those composers of life too be!
no longer cuffed around this tree
i can look away, finally! allowed to flee!

A Milestone Post

I have tried all my adult life to make it easier for those I deemed lost. Only to fail over and over again. Or am I looking at this wrong? Is it I that's lost? Only living will allow me to truly answer this question. Thank you fan story family once again for lending me an ear.
