quinara: Buffy standing at the back of her house, looking grumpy by a tree. (Buffy Flooded)

I wrote a poem for [livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends (the DW site for which has somewhat died, I fear; sing out if you miss it and we'll try harder!). We're on Sumerian Proverbs this month, after [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni uncovered a load, of which the the summary for this poem is one.

G; free of stuff needing an AO3 warning (but gloomy); Buffy POV in S6-ish; free verse with a slightly concrete edge, because I was experimenting.

I looked into the water. My destiny was drifting past.


Fluid Dynamics.

I used to stare at falling water – stare and watch it fall
I used to hope I wasn’t anywhere
                                                            at least not here
                                                                                  not now
I didn’t have a destiny
I couldn’t have
not dead                   and still
                two times
                                                  brought back.

So little did I know.




You used to stare at me when I was falling
                                                                            here
                                                                            still here
                                                                                    and now
Each night I fought you fought with me
                                    the falling, rushing parts.
We were awash and bright with steel.


                                                              Now
I feel your eyes on me – blue water
                                                              now
                                      a dark, wide blue
the gravity
is rushing me
                    to this

Was this my destiny?
To fall
                    and find you here?

Have you looked into DW's community importing feature?

I'm not sure I'm happy with the idea of copying over everything (and all the comments) on the basis of a modly fiat, when it might be that people don't want their stuff carried over.

Excellent point, and one that was at peripherally behind DW's hesitation in enabling the community function, as I recall.
