Still the Same Girl (Revised)The Abyss was singing her to Its bedside tonight, unfolding black sheets into soft and smoky wisps. Let go, It hummed. You gave so much already. Come rest, Nami. There’s no sense in fighting it any longer.
A few steps away from Bell-mère's grave, Nami’s body stood in the moon’s pale and unflattering glow. Her mind, however, wandered elsewhere, opening fragile memories she swore she’d never touch again.
She drew in a sharp, cold breath and hung her head low. Nami was as worn as an old sail flapping limply on the high seas. Those fierce winds, once filling her with joy, now seeped through holes that had been torn through her spirit. Many had knifed Nami, but none so much as her sister. Nojiko’s last words weaved in and out of her head: “You're still the same girl.”
Nojiko. She couldn't have been more wrong than a rock with an eye patch. That so-called “girl" had perished with her mother, Bell-mère.

Night has fallen over the world
Turning it into silence and echoes
Lamp lights create a soft light around the street
Shading every single corner
Where all the black cats law low
In the waiting for the sun
To disappear from the sky
So they can jump and roam
From verandahs to verandahs
Without ever being noticed by the people around
Softly the fall to the ground without any harm
They are the felines and shadows
They are the furs and claws
Beware or they will hurt you
With their overwhelming number
