460. Yoshitakamura

Darling girl.
Do you care what they may say?

Sweetness and light. Shadows.
How it all comes together.

One last kiss ...
a cool firmness
slowly yielding.

Kyrie eleison.

You are so young.

Those tear stains on your cheeks.
That steadiness in your eyes.
Well, then.

Let us go into dark eternal night
together, smiling bravely,
holding hands.


This sort of thing happens over here quite a lot. Generally the lovers are married people -- not to one another, that is -- or else the very young whose families are adamantly opposed to the love choice of a son or daughter, usually the girl.
