Avatar Author: Blossom Ruoquen (LoA) Ficlets is back from the dead. Or shall I say Ficly..? Yes! Where there's a will, there's a way..apparantly (or so I was told as a child *stands brokenly behind McDonalds cashier*) More for my Bio later :) Too busy at ... Read Bio

On the anniversary of Her death, you lay on the lush knoll staring up at the sky – Your sky. You see lucid greens, surrounding you like the rocking waves of vast oceans; you observe majestic golds shimmering with the bond you share together; and you feel the intense reds in the pit of your chest-the passion in your core.
As it sets, the small globe of fire stares back at you, wishing it were closer: willing you to chase it. You feel your breath rising to give chase as the sky beckons you by name.
Hope, come back.
You clutch at the bowing grass by your sides; as if that would ground you from the bedazzling threads of light drawling you in. Laced with these glimmering threads, were swirling pockets of twilight – just dark enough to offset the scintillating reign of colors over an immaculately dark earth.
This earth where you were willingly bound.
Your sighing sun sets behind a sad facade of carefree gaiety, knowing you chose to be here with Her-in all her finiteness-than in the sky: where every Hope should be

    Neat sunset pic, but you’ve added so many more colors!
    Pet peeve, the text-type ‘u’ instead of you.. kind of irritates me. But I read around it and found some colorful imagery, an aching desire and regretful sadness. :) remorse.
    so, who died?

    Sorry about that :P I was trying to cut down on characters since I was 34 over :P Something had to go.

    Well written, except the aforementioned “u.” But I understand.

    Yeah, the ‘u’ thing bothered me enough for me to stop reading. Then I saw the comments, so I went back and tried again. This is definitely nice description, it’s a shame it was marred by the character limit. I guess the ‘u’ thing just bugs me too much.

    Ok, I did some editing. The ‘u’ thing was too big of a distraction for everyone. I always second-guess my editing, so I was reluctant to go through with it.. Hope it made this more enjoyable to read though >.<
