Poem idea

First version of a sonnet written for my Reading as a Writer assessment. Based off a scene in the Fallen Wing anime scripts (episode six).


Haunted memories force us out, fleeing

enclosed spaces to greet the night and rain.

Sit upon this sturdy crutch, have the stain

of blood wash away and turn the unseeing

soul towards the living. We’re foreseeing

a future of struggle, put behind slain

loved ones and defend a war-torn domain.

Blood and magic mean nothing, break the chain.

But for now, in this moment, forget all

troubles and enjoy this new emotion

of first love, innocent and strong, just like

the woman laughing in the rain. The fall

will be saving, her devotion

complete, sharing truth with a deadly strike.
