This month’s song fic is inspired by James Bay’s Need the Sun to Break. Here are the lyrics and video if you want to check them out. I hadn’t heard this song previously, but I really love it. And fair warning, this is probably going to be a really short fic, because as much as I love this song, I’m having trouble coming up with a story for it.
I’d given up on sleep hours ago. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to sleep. I did. Desperately. But, I wanted you more. Though, after last night, I wasn’t sure that was something I was going to get. Not after the way you left–dragging your broken heart behind you like a child’s pull toy with a busted wheel.
I needed the sun to break. I needed the dawn. I needed to know if it was just the endless night closing in around me, wrapping me in fear, making me want to chase you down, or if it’s just you I need. It’s not fair to you, this doubt. I know that. I need to decide in the cold light of day. I just hope that when I figure it out, it’s not too late.
That’s it for me. Be sure to check out the other bloggers’ stories!

Wow! Short, but intense. I liked it.
That was really compelling. Well done.
