A filk about Mal's love for Inara.


CATEGORY: FILK    TIMES READ: 1669    RATING: 9    SERIES: FIREFLY

Every little step you take,

Makes my heart start to shake.

Every time you look at me,

I can tell I'm all you see.

So why, oh why, did you leave this way,

Leaving my heart with so much to say?

You knew I would have told you,

If you had only seen it through.

Now my heart is burning,

So much room for yearning,

When you're not here,

I lose myself to fear.

A fear so strong, it makes me weep,

In the darkest hours, I cannot sleep.

I know that you would calm me, were you there,

But you're off doing who knows what, in who knows where.

I want to tell you, so very much,

How I want to see you, feel your touch.

You wouldn't let me say it then,

It's harder, even, to try again.

But for you, I would have kept the sky in a ball,

Just to show you that what I feel for you, ain't small at all.

I'd keep the stars in a dish,

And ask them for my biggest wish.

What you wouldn't let me say to you,

I'm going to say right now:

I love you, Inara Serra, I know you love me too.

And if you'd let me show you, I'd prove to you just how.

Rhyming couplets are a tad simplistic...but I used to be an English Lit medial, so I have been forced to study, dissect and discuss a lot of poetry. Which means take my comments with the grain of salt provided;)

Still...I really think this is something that Mal could have come up with had he been procluded towards writing out his feelings during the period of time between "Those Left Behind" and "Serenity."
