The phrase it’s darkest before the dawn means that things always seem the worst right before they improve.
I think a lot of us are going right now “Dear god, that darkest part of the night is taking a long time”.
I am refusing to let the darkness take me, especially since I’m asleep usually at that time.
This is going to be a short post, but it is darkest before the dawn. Sadly, there is something rotten in this world, and it is not COVID. It should be COVID, it really should, but it is not. COVID is not the worst thing on this planet, it’s us, it’s Humans.
There are good humans, there are good beings out there. You are one of them! And that, we need to remember and hold onto. I think the biggest problem is, the worst of us, have the biggest platforms.
We’ve all had one, haven’t we? That person that we want, that person we can’t have, the one that we can never have? You’re not in love with them and you’re not planning or are going to cheat on your current partner, but you can’t help but think about them. What would it be like to be with them, just one night with them? Even when you’re single and you still can’t have them, you want them, they’re the one you think of during the night, the one that “helps” you to get over your heart break.
I feel really terrible, with my fantasy guy, I could never have him. But I really want him, even for just one night. Even when we were both single and even before I met the guy I’m with now, I can’t have him and I really wanted him. You see, I woke up to hear him singing one morning and I don’t think he knew that I was there. He has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard and he plays the guitar…but I was lying there, completely falling for his voice, and at the same time I was lying right next to my partner, at the time.
I had laid there so still, as to not wake up my (now ex) partner and I just listened to this amazinginly beautiful voice signing one of my favourite songs of all time and strumming his guitar. Soak through the thin walls and into my mind and I haven’t been able to shake it out of their since. He’s been the one that I sing about in the shower, he’s the one that I think about in the darkness of the night and this will be the only time I ever tell about it to another soul.
There is nothing worse than a fantasy lover that you can never have.
The one who makes you feel like this… (the song that inspired me to write this post)
I finally got to see this movie and I really loved it! Dracula Untold is based on the story of Dracula. Except the difference is here it shows how “Dracula” become the monster. Something that I previously had no idea about, I had always heard about what happened with Dracula after the fact. I knew bits and pieces, I knew that the moment that pushed him over the edge was the death of his wife.
Without giving too much away, I really enjoyed this movie. It was one of those movies though that seemed to go quickly through one part and slowly through another without really a specific reason why they seemed too focused on one part. For example, where Luke Evans actually turns into Dracula I felt that it went far too fast for such a pivotal part. I felt like it was a movie that could have done better off it had been longer. Maybe not an epic movie, but it definitely needed to be longer than it was.
The acting was awesome, I have had such a crush on Luke Evans ever since I saw him “The Three Musketeers 2011“. I think he has an air of old Hollywood about him. Dominic Cooper (think Mama Mia, Captain America) plays his enemy, and plays the bad guy extremely well. You completely don’t like him and have no sympathy for him, but his last scene was another part that I felt needed to be more spectacular.
Expect to be intrigued in this movie, I wouldn’t say that it will blow your mind. You will be interested though, you won’t notice the time that has gone past.
