I gave up everything, even my divinity…Yet, here I am finding myself with a second chance.
You know what I say to my second chance? F*ck it and F*ck you.
I don’t need it. What I need is to get lost, to forget. But the Most-High made sure that didn’t work.
The one attempt I had at changing my life. Giving it to someone else, you didn’t allow that, instead; you gave me the cruelest joke of life.
I told you; I don’t need it or her.
What the f*ck is your problem? Leave me alone. Let me be. I don’t intend on loving or apologizing to her, even though I caused her scar. I’m not saying she deserves it but f*ck sometimes, you hand us shit that we have to put up with.
I don’t like the way she eyes me. The way I have the potential of losing myself in her eyes. I am not for anyone. You hear me?
So, take this up with someone else. Not Me.
Nihility; It’s how I feel. It’s how I am. How I’ll always be. I no longer guard HIS precious Garden, I chose everything else but him and now… all I feel is nothingness.
– Gideon Del Rey.
