Title: baby Mina Molly (Some Kind of Boy poem 2)
author: Tara Ann
summary: This is a poem based on John and Jill's relationship in the
future to come. It deals with love and loss. X2
Rating/warning & pairing: G. Pyro/Jill
*Characters do not belong to me except for Jill she is mine and
looks like Claire Danes.
** I've liked Pyro from the first moment I saw him in X2. He's
complex with confidence and vulnerability. I only hope I give St.
John Allerdyce the respect and understanding he deserves. He is the
boy with the soft edges and the palest pout.
baby Mina Molly
baby Mina left us today
you said I couldn't have her
because of what you are
and didn't want her to be
I don't know why I listened to you
I love you, I loved her
you said you couldn't keep her
for the same silly reasons
not so silly, just the same
you didn't hold my hand
I went in with her
I returned without her
she was gone, we were gone, it was gone
and I cried, I hated you, I hated myself
I had never felt colder than I did that day
my insides and my flesh
I couldn't feel my blood
I know you felt the same
looking at me caused you pain
you were supposed to keep me warm
was that too much for you to do?
I guess it's really not that easy for you
later you cried and you told me you really did want her
like I wanted her
and I hit you, I screamed
I said, "You didn't even touch her and she's turned into ghost
ashes . . .
why don't you trust yourself?"
I even said your name to make you understand
you tried not to cry, you cried all night
you'll never forget the taste
the dulling glimmer
your smile silent in pieces
you see our baby in the candle flame
baby Mina left me
