Requiem to Bonnie

By ClareSusan

Requiem

Velocity (Valerie Elizabeth Lambert), the writer, is one of my characters in a Firefly and Serenity cooperative storytelling RPG. She lost her lover and love of her life during the war. She never really recovered, despite spending time in a psychiatric institution. She is out now and flying but she only functions on the bridge with the control column in her hands.


"Requiem"

"Requiem To Bonnie"



To war we're called

Two souls diverse

Friends we lose but

Never need to

Say

The one I love is dead



In Common love

United we

No future see

In which I would

Find

The one I love is dead



Between us lie

Both time and space

Time due long past

But still I don't

Fear

The one I love is dead



A Judas in

A trusted post

With self-serving

Deals he seals her

Fate

The one I love is dead



A missile hit

A raging fire

My lover screams

Over comm I

Hear

The one I love is dead



The missile leaves

Her battered ship

A shattered wreck

None live I thus

See

The one I love is dead



From shattered dreams

To broken heart

All reason dies

In dark despair

Know

The one I love is dead



From top of class

To jacket straight

By missile sent

Time and spare to

Lament

The one I love is dead



What's reason worth

Or Sanity

What value they

While in this cold

Hell

The one I love is dead



Months in a house

Of bugs I flee

A ship to join

In flight can I

Escape

The one I love is dead



The joy of flight

For oh so brief

A span of time

Indeed I can

Forget

The one I love is dead



Back down to earth

In life mundane

My mind has time

And leeway to

Recall

The one love is dead



No respite in

The hours of dark

Where nightmares haunt

And in sleep I

Dream

The one I love is dead



Bruised in body

Bruised in spirit

Unchecked I bleed

In grief in blood

Drowned

The one I love is dead



To lesson teach

A planet kill

All folk dead and

'Neath enemy

Shadow

The one I love is dead



To seek my death

Courage I lack

Denied its peace

Condemned to thus

Suffer

The one I love is dead



Of future twin

Dark void of space

No plans, no goals,

No dreams, no hope

For

The one I love is dead



Worthless, I should!,

Pointless I could!

What value might

And could have been

Now

The one I love is dead



I love her still

And in my heart

Remains her ghost

Bitter-sweet to

Remind

The one I love is dead



No hope I see

Despair complete

Now that I have

Lost my true love

Bonnie

The one I love is dead
