I Loved

Work Text:

I loved it when you put flowers in my hair. The soft summer breeze, the scent of spider lilies dancing in the dust.

 

I loved it when you called me your princess.

 

I loved it when you called me your Queen.

 

I loved it when

 

I loved you.

I picked a corpse flower and wove it into your hair.

 

It was beautiful.

 

You were beautiful.

 

You adjusted your glasses and you laughed. “Doesn’t this make me look silly?”

 

I took your hand. “No. I think...I think you look cute.”

 

Then, silence.

 

“Akira…”

 

“Hmm…?”

 

“Let’s stay like this forever.”

 

...

 

But you chose someone else. You chose him . The artist; the one who painted his love onto a canvas. The one who, in the end, both built your palace and stole your heart.

 

You chose someone else, and perhaps I can, in time, forgive you.

 

The one I’ll never forgive is myself.

 

Because, in the end, I didn’t steal your heart.

 

You stole mine.
