Be What I Am Not

Title: Be What I Am Not
Play:   Hamlet
Pairing/characters: Hamlet/Horatio
Rating: pg
Word Count: 156
Prompt(s) used: legacy
Summary: Hamlet to Horatio - words not spoken.

    Be a burden I must bear, be the weight of the world on my shoulders. Be the sun reflected on the sea, the call of Nightingales at dusk. Be the sting of the rain and the heat of the sun. Be the world torn in two, be the glass broken on the floor. Be the body buried alone, be the words I had meant for you but gave to another. Be it all, the air, the water, fire, and earth. Be my life, my death, glory, and hope. Be my Brutus and my Antony. Be my hate and my love, my angel and my monster. Be what I am not so I can be what I am. Temperance to my passion, logic to my madness. Be my savior, be my damnation. Be my faith so I can have doubt. Be all that this world has to offer. Be my soul, my body, my life, my everything.
