This is Day 2 of my New Year's Project to publish a oneshot or poem every day during the month of January. Lots of Doctor Who, lots of other stuff as well (details on my profile). Enjoy!


I met you in my normal way

I grabbed your hand and told you "run!"

I thought I'd only spend the day

You wanted to know more. You won.

.

Fantastic Rose with searching eyes

Who never hoped for what she craved

The girl I couldn't leave behind

The girl who couldn't stay away

.

I showed you every burning star

And took you to the ends of time

You showed me how to mend a heart

And told me when I crossed the line

.

Fantastic Rose with fearless eyes

Who never hoped for what she craved

The girl I couldn't leave behind

The girl who couldn't stay away

.

The end was near, I took you home

I told you "live, and think of me"

You would not let me die alone

And let unfathomed power break free

.

Fantastic Rose with burning eyes

Who never hoped for what she craved

The girl I tried to leave behind

The girl who wouldn't stay away

.

I would not take your sacrifice

Fantastic, foolish human child

I praised you as I paid the price

And as I burned away, I smiled.

.

Fantastic Rose who dried my eyes,

I never hoped for what you gave

You weren't meant to stay behind

I wasn't meant to stay away.


If you enjoyed, I'd love to hear about it and I'd love to see you again on later days in this month. Thanks for reading!
