Inspired by my RLNT fics and the one-shot A Moment Like This, this poem is about the kinds of warmth Sirius experiences in Azkaban, in hiding after his escape, and in his lover Cami's arms.
Warmth in a prison cell, coveted, rare,
Found in sunlight streaming,
Shines through iron bars to reach the stone floor,
Each ray a mixed blessing.
Reminders of golden, halcyon days,
Memories of lost friends,
Replaced with the images fuelled by hate,
Clung to in the darkness.
Warmth on a sandy beach, lone, unfettered,
Revelling in freedom,
Floats weightlessly upon clear blue waters,
Healing scarred emotions.
Dives into a sea of forgetfulness,
Living for the moment,
An owl arrives to break the island's spell,
Returning to darkness.
Warmth in a lover's arms, soft and stirring,
Feelings once forgotten,
Revealed in the tenderness of kisses,
Pressed to lips in passion.
Uniting two hearts and souls and bodies
In a blissful embrace,
Dreaming of the future, entwined in love,
Defying the darkness.
