he closed his eyes and i wondered if i should kiss his lips i drew closer and closer to him but remembered, he wasn't mine to kiss he was just a distant dream not for me to miss
he smiled at me and i wondered why life could be unfair sometimes little did we know how love hurts so much till were finally on the spot we love, they love-- but it's not us and it's a cycle we can't stop.
For Marius... I hope you're happy with you're Cosette.
He sleeps. An enigma, his life bereft - He lived then died once his angel had left. It happened as simply as anything might, As from day there follows the coming of night.
The poem at the end of my favourite book. Presumably co.mposed by Marius Pontmercy to honour the life of Jean Valjean. One day I hope to translate Les Miserables in full, until then, here's a very small section of it.
i know that empty space the hologram earth she inhabits in what could have been what never was a hollow heaviness of that excruciating longing a waterfall of curses falling from her lips and disappearing into that yawning chasm that consumes her until she is no more than a shell containing a love she can't let go of for without the full weight of her entirely spent body is the only force which keeps her yearning pinned to the ground stationary real a love she can reach out and touch and fuse with it until it is impossible to disentangle her very being from a made-up idealized love that somewhere in her mind burns brightly and casts dancing shadows on the walls of her minds scenes of his closeness the feeling of his palm cupping her face melting
and it is more than that warmth that gushes forth from her chest as he holds her she's bleeding on his shirt and she imagines her red blood cells setting into the fabric the stain of her existence to be carried forever on his lapel
how she heard the people sing but could they have known that this entire business the fighting and revolution had nothing to do with politics or some misplaced surge for justice the fight was for her freedom to solidify her shadow world where she belonged to him
and somehow as she pulls her last breaths and watches her blood stain spread and spread she wished to consumed him his kiss on her face lingered forever her final memory the epitaph on a tomb that represented the ultimate freedom.
On my own Pretending he's beside me All alone I walk with him till morning Without him I feel his arms around me And when I lose my way I close my eyes And he has found me
In the rain the pavement shines like silver All the lights are misty in the river In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight And all I see is him and me forever and forever
And I know it's only in my mind That I'm talking to myself and not to him And although I know that he is blind Still I say, there's a way for us
I love him But when the night is over He is gone The river's just a river Without him The world around me changes The trees are bare and everywhere The streets are full of strangers
I love him But every day I'm learning All my life I've only been pretending Without me His world will go on turning A world that's full of happiness That I have never known
I love him I love him I love him But only on my own
"On My Own" is a song from the hit movie Les Miserables. This song is about a girl, Eponine (Samantha Barks), who has fallen head-over-heels in love with a boy, Marius (Eddie Redmayne). Unfortunately, Marius has fallen in love with another girl, Cosette (Amanda Seyfried). Marius begs Eponine to help him find Cosette, but because she hates to see Marius unhappy, she does what she is asked to do. She sings this song out of lost love... Later in the film, she ends up taking a bullet for Marius and she dies in his arms.
