|fog twists our sorrow...|
she walked through the deadened forest in long, slow strides. her face was lowered, her eyes towards the brush along the brush along the forest floor. her mind was focused on his face, the eyes that searched her soul, the lips that so gently kissed her own. she remembered his strong arms that held her so tightly. she longed for them now. a single tear slid from her eye to her cheek and rested on her lips. in her mind's eye, she ran with him in the clouds. the fog gathered as they sprinted through it, chasing them in waves. they laughed and frolicked between the tombstones, occasionally stopping to pay respect to the dead. "rest in peace," he'd say after changing faces. "rest in peace." the forest finally cut away and opened to what seemed to be a clear field. the low fog lulled the scenery to one fresh with death. with her long black cloaks and bundle of daisies that hung at her side, she seemed to fit right in. she entered the field, her pace slowing as she sighed shakily. she made her way between the headstones, his own locked in her memory. she passed others that were familiar to her and paused to touch them with the tips of her fingers. she finally reached the row where her lover lay. she solemnly walked down it and approached the newest grave. bowing from sorrow, an old willow tree comforted her with its leafy tears. she placed her hand on the cold tombstone and sobbed quietly. she lowered herself to her knees and began to dig a small hole. she gently removed the freshly turned earth from its place in the puzzle and replaced it with the daisies. she covered the roots gingerly and made sure the flowers stayed upright. the daisies, wilty with her warmth, flopped over admist her hands protest. daisies had always been his favorite and she lived to please him, as he did her. she dusted her hands off and lifted herself from the dirt. she kissed her hand and laid it on the stone. the fog rushed in with the wind, making her long black cloaks and long, slow strides disappear into the forest.
