This is connected to Finding a Dream.

When I was younger
I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart
And I watched
As he tried to reassemble it
And my momma swore that
She would never let herself forget
And that was the day that I promised
I'd never sing of love
If it does not exist

Durin leaped on her, and I backed away, cowering next to Raven.
"I hate you!" Durin screeched at Jazz. "You don't care!"
Jazz's eyes were wide. Her voice was hoarse. "I never did, Durin."
Durin unsheathed his claws. I could see him trying so hard not to claw her.
"I hate everything about having kits, Durin," Jazz meowed calmly. "Let me up."
Durin didn't. "You don't love them?"
"I do!" Jazz snapped. "Let me up, Durin, or I'll have to fight you."
Durin shakily obeyed.
I watched as Jazz stalked away, her final words echoing back to me. "I'll never forget."
Durin clawed the ground and screeched in pain.
And I swore to never fall in love.

But darling,
You, are, the only exception

I love him, and I know it.
I just have to tell him somehow.
I've broken my promise. And I like it.

Maybe I know, somewhere
Deep in my soul
That love never lasts
And we've got to find other ways
To make it alone
Keep a straight face

I am standing.
I know that, as soon as I leave, I break the connection. Have other cats had this ability?
I'm helping him, I know. I'm helping him love his Clan.
He has to. And I have to find Berry and love him, somehow.
Will our love last, mine and Berry's?
I'm not so sure.

And I've always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable, distance
And up until now
I had sworn to myself that I'm
Content with loneliness

I stand up.
It's normal for me to leave.
But why is this different? Is it because I'm going to be lonelier?

Because none of it was ever worth the risk

I walk towards him in a daze. What am I doing? I think. I'm supposed to walk away!

You, are, the only exception

I walk faster. Then run.
Run towards him.

And I'm on my way to believing
