Horatio
you were there
on the field
that day
were there
when dear Ophelia
her death came to me
you see and saw Yorick
knew of my pain
the only one
my Horatio
to be everywhere
and nowhere.
poem thought of in a fiction writing class :3 or rather, i just wrote 'horatio!' on a piece of paper and found it earlier today XD

explanation:

the field: the battlefield hamlet's father dies at
yorick: the skull hamlet has his famous soliloquy with [obv]
everywhere: he is in nearly all of the scenes in hamlet
nowhere: but is rarely addressed by anyone but hamlet himself and when he is they are telling him to go away ^^;;

i love horatio <3
i also love shakespeare <3

Oh, I do love this, if only for those two final lines and the ideas behind them. I love that, so much - Horatio's always there, yet never really acknowledged.

Horatio's amazing. And this is lovely.
