Fic, While We Live, White Cortina, by DorsetGirl

Oh my  God, guys, I am so embarrassed about this: I wrote a POEM. I’ve never done one before, and this is so NOT what I sat down to write 30 minutes ago. It’s horribly Hallmark, and like I say, I’m embarrassed. But I figure, if it wanted to be written so much that it hit the paper despite my cringing and going “Oh shit this is such rubbish” – well, here it is. Sorry.

 

Title:                While We Live

Author:             DorsetGirl

Fandom:          Life on Mars

Disclaimer:      I don’t own these characters or their universe. BBC/Kudos do. I’m not making any money out of this.

Rating:             White Cortina

Word Count:   140

Pairing:            Sam/Gene

Spoiler:            None

Summary:       It’s always us.

Author’s Note: Sorry. Really.  I think this must have been inspired by several of the things I’ve read in the past few days, although it's definitely not anyone else's fault. Certainly what I sat down to write was a sort of follow up to trollopfop’s amazing Rules

 


While We Live

 

 

He doesn’t say, he’ll never say the words that dance here every day.

He puts them in my heart to keep them warm between us while we sleep.

 

And when we wake, we touch and hold; he smiles at me, his eyes so bold.

I hold him tight, my love, my heart, forever safe and never part.

 

And when we rise, we kiss and hug, move round each other warm and snug;

I touch his lips, he kisses mine. He smiles again; it just takes time.

 

And while we live, it’s always us; I care for him – he says I fuss.

He takes me in his arms to stay; I’m glad I came back. Every day.

 

And when he dies, I’ll still be there, never parted, hope and care.

I love this man like he loves me, forever joined; true harmony.

Bloody hell, the title's a bit huge, DG.

But enough of that. This pome of yours - it's a real pome with rhyming and everything. :D It's cute and fluffy, and I think it's lovely.

And you're not allowed to say your own work is rubbish... I'm sure it's in the rules somewhere ;)

I haven't got used to people coming here instead of Lifein1973 - not complaining though.

It's cute and fluffy, and I think it's lovely.

Actually, though I'd never say so anywhere else, I kind of do too, even though it's very corny.

you're not allowed to say your own work is rubbish It saves other people the bother. No, seriously, it's a device - so people know that they don't have to be incredibly complimentary, that the writer will be pleased if she gets comments that don't actually have vomit icons attached. You get more of a debate that way, rather than people averting their eyes and maintaining a tactful silence.

I post mine in my LJ, then put a link up on lifein1973. i like people coming over to my journal :)

vomit icons - I hope they are a product of your colourful imagination. I never want to see one of those ...

You get more of a debate that way... Well, yes, you certainly seem to have sparked a debate or two, so it worked ;)
