"She knows your mind

Is not yet in league

With the rest of the world

And its little intrigues"

Depeche Mode, "Little 15"

Remember that first i…n…k…l…i…n…g

you had to join T_H_E_M ?

(it's okay; she remembers, too)

You hadn't given it much

thought before

But you had all the

reasons

for joining y-e-a-r-s ago

%%%%%%%%%%

Everywhere you look, there's

the family

Bella&Cissy& (distantly or by association)

LuciusRodolphusRabastanEvanMulciberYaxley

&& a few whose faces have just

f_a_d_e_d away

And, suddenly, that stupid phrase—

peerpressure

taints you because

you've SUCCUMBED to it

%%%%%%%%%%

There was one last chance you had

a sliver of

l*I*g*H*t

& a sparkling laugh

Really, it was kind of funny

that her hair is the color of a…

maltedmead

(go on, chuckle; you know she would, too)

That memory is

imprinted

in your brain &…

%%%%%%%%%%

Her attention

(affection)

was n_o_t enough

The laughter in her eyes faded

as your thoughts

D_A_R_K_E_N_E_D

for she ended up knowing you well

(you wish you could've known each other better)

& she fretted about the

pit

into which you were about to fall,

from which you'd never

return

More Regmerta! :D I love these two; they just mesh and I think that they're one of the few sad pairings that I really enjoy reading/writing. And the song helped, because it painted a pretty clear picture in my mind. Try listening to "Little 15"—as with most Depeche Mode stuff, it's excellent!

Thanks for reading, and please review!

Thanks as always to Morghen for beta'ing! :]

2017 note: Ahhh, Regmerta, doomed from the start (as with many Reg ships). *sighs* Whenever I wanna write something angsty, it's always a good bet to write Reg. TT-TT
