|"Somewheeeeere out theeeeeere, I dreeeeeeeeam of Kaaaaaaage tonight."|
I've become impossible
holding on to when
when everything seemed to matter more
the two of us
all used and beaten up
watching fate as it flows down the path we
you and me
we're in this together now
none of them can stop us now
we will make it through somehow
you and me
if the world should break in two
until the very end of me
until the very end of you
~ Nine Inch Nails
Oh, Trent. When I saw you decked out today in your brand new winter gear, I couldn’t have been more proud.
You looked so gorgeous, so handsome and strong and ready for winter. I was brought back to that fateful day last year when I almost lost you. The accident that had nearly cost you your life, and the the emergency surgery that had followed.
I also reflected today on just how much you have been there for me for the past ten years of friendship; the long cold nights when we cuddled in the snow together, keeping each other warm when we had nowhere else to go; the miles and miles we drove across Canada together during the years I worked as a dancer; all the off-key singing and endless babbling you have put up with from me without ever judging me or criticizing my choices in life; always being there to protect me when I had no one else to turn to, when I was frightened and alone; the way you held me when I wasn’t feeling well and just let me lie there for hours, groaning and feeling sorry for myself.
The best part yesterday when I dropped you off at Canadian Tire was when the mechanic added that extra note to your file:
“Please Call Car Trent. He Likes This.”
And when I went to pick you up this morning:
“Are you here for Trent? His new winter tires look great!”
They sure do, baby. They sure do.

too damn cold to go outside and take another, so suck it up.
