hope - part two

sorrowed and sullied, averting his eyes with a half-hearted smile making his way down from her loft, on creaky steps, into the rain over his shoulder, her fireplace casting a warm glow through her window and the ember of hope residing inside him finally rekindled stoking the flames, she did for nearly four annuals until one evening, by the song of a siren, her spectre did disappear without warning, without reasoning, without expecting return openly she wept for his return, quietly he wept at his newfound pain lost and tortured, he screamed - both from inside and outside himself only his memories of the lady in white keeping him tethered to life nearly a full decade, his persistent persecution echoing over ages his memories of her all but gone, she now a spectre in his mind released and relieved from the rack, his broken mind and body rest the cool floor against his chest and cheek comforting to his soul fragments flashing of the one, the only one, who he met so long ago peeling his broken body from the floor, his wounds barely healed his trek back a mirror image of the one taken from years past taking him back to the land where his entire life went up in flames hanging his head, he speaks to his maternal and inamoratal ghosts finally relinquishing that pain, carrying forward, hopeful of his new life lady in white, unsuspecting when the spectre returns her loving embrace, warm smile and sincerity in her words melt over him worry of her loss escaping through his first expelled breath relief and retribution entering as his breathes her vanilla scent once more ---------- m, thank you for all you've done for me throughout the years. even when you weren't there physically, you were always that angel on my shoulder, making me question my negative actions. i am so glad to have you back in my life after so long. and i promise, i will never leave you hanging again. hugz & kisses - Raven
