Spoilers: Hakkai's backstory
Notes: written for saiyuki_time, Challenge #76, Sonnet;; time allowed: 90 minutes; time taken: errrrh, I totally lost track ... somewhere between 60 and 120 minutes, I guess. I'm not completely happy with it - a couple of the lines are pretty twee - but hey. at least it's a sonnet.
Summary: n/a, really
In my first home dwelt my sister, with my father and my mother -
And I remember nothing more: my time there was too brief
Why were we two torn apart, and taken from each other?
Why did our cruel parents choose to give us both that grief?
For years we lived in chilly halls, lone hearts among the crowd
Until we gained our freedom, found each other once again
To vow love was forbidden, yet that is what we vowed
Our shining joy made of us one, where earlier we were twain
But all too soon that flame was dowsed: she was reft from my side
I tried to buy her back with blood, and on that darksome day
I lost my love, my form, my mind: in truth, that night, I died -
Yet love and light came back to me, as life was poured away
Even if the sky's my roof, while at Heaven's whim we roam
As long as I am by his side, I find myself at home.
