I reckon it was the falling of the chains around my wrists that alerted me to the dawn. Slow steps that led to the gallows seemed to echo in my head as I was led outside. Except I was still alive, even when the sun burned its memory onto my eyes, engraved forever as a sin. I did not worship it, nor do I fear it. I stare it perhaps longingly, the only source of warmth in this world. But I am still cold and the chains still dangle on my wrists.

How long do you have to live? They asked me.

How long indeed.

But you weren’t like me. When you woke up from the cacoon you were born in, you saw the moon. Did you see something unfriendly, something dark lurking there? Something that did not make you feel welcome? Is that why, when that solitary golden light came into your world, you clutched onto it?

It’s the same, I suppose.

I will never be the one person you long the most. You will always be the one thing I need. We are bound, you see, by those invisible chains. You may ignore them, but you know they’re there. You knew the minute you saw my eyes and they were your own. I promised you the world and I haven’t changed that promise.

I count the hours for the light where the fulfillment of my dream becomes more than a shadowy haze and when you will come to me out of your own free will.

Perhaps it will always be a dream, but I count the hours to dawn nevertheless.

Son Goku, will you not heed the moon?

More of a drabble than a fanfic, but I wanted to test this out first. Comments, sticks and stones, chocolate are appreciated.

Beautiful, right down to the last line. ♥

I dont' think this was made clear at the beginning (which I'm really sorry about, since we just started) but your unique tag goes into the 'tags' section of the post, so that it'd be easier to find the fics later on. ^^ I'll go add this to the info right now. Sorry for the inconvenience. ♥
