I was looking up poems and I found this one in particular that caught my eye. Also I wanted to do it for my favorite couple in particular. Cloud and Tifa in FFVII! I love Final Fantasy 7 so um yea. Here it is! :P It's in Tifa's POV. I DO NOT OWN FF7 OR THE POEM!
I was cleaning up the bar after a long day. Many customers had come by and left a mess. If they just had the compassion to at least clean up after themselves. While scrubbing some tables, I couldn't help but let my thoughts wonder about Cloud. He was off who knows where once more.
But for some reason, I wasn't very mad at him this time. I missed him in fact. I missed him so much. I missed his pale face. I missed his blue ocean eyes. I missed his blonde gravity defying hair.
Deep in thought, I didn't realize that my towel slipped off the table, causing me to fall. I cursed under my breath and got back up, patting my regular attire black dress.
I continued to clean, this time trying not to think about my childhood friend. I knew that I loved him. But the thing I didn't know was if he showed affection back. I sighed. I can never stop thinking about him.
I finally finished my work and glanced at my watch. It read 8:47 p.m. I sighed and turned around to do the dishes. I continued miserably scrubbing off scraps of food. I soon finished and started to mop. I saw a droplet fall on the floor. Then another. I felt my cheeks and realized that it was me crying.
Then I couldn't hold it any more. I started balling my eyes out. I really missed Cloud. It just isn't the same without him. I don't know how I kept my emotions bottled up inside. He's been gone for three months now.
I looked to where the voice came from and wiped my eyes. Marlene stood at the stairs, clutching her teddy bear, looking at me worryingly. When I smiled she turned and went up the stairs. She stopped and turned to face me.
"He'll come back soon. Please don't cry."
She then scurried up the stairs leaving me to ponder in thought.
I had finally finished mopping. My watch read 9:23 p.m. I glanced outside. Maybe a nice night stroll would help. I checked upstairs to check on the kids. Both were asleep. I closed the door quietly and walked down the stairs to the main entrance door.
I opened the door as the wind greeted me. I locked the door and started to walk down the sidewalk. I decided to walk to the park. As I walked, He came into my thoughts again. Those blue ocean eyes. The blond spikey hair. I stopped walking as tears welled up in my eyes once more.
"Cloud…" I mumbled
That did it. I knelt down on my knees and started to cry once more. I put my hands to my face and cried my eyes out. The wind was cold and I was shivering. I didn't care. It wasn't enough. My mourning for Cloud was stronger. I looked up at the sky and screamed out his name.
"Cloud! Why did you have to go?"
"So I could protect you from people that would harm you."
My eyes widened as I saw Cloud. It was him. I ran up to him and clutched his chest, crying. His arms wrapped around me as well.
"It's… really y-you…"
"I know. I'm back Teef'"
The sound of him saying my nickname brought me reassurance. But then I knew.
I have to tell him.
I looked up at him as he looked at me with his blue orbs. I have to tell him.
"Do you think I'm pretty?"
He stared at me.
I thought my heart had cracked. But I had to continue.
"D-Do you think I'm fat?"
"Yes of course."
H-How could he? I was mourning for him and he's insulting me!
"Do-Do you want to be with me forever?"
I felt tears well up in my eyes. I had one more question left.
"Would you cry if I left?"
I escaped his grasp as I stared at him with my eyes showing hurt. Tears fell and I screamed at him.
"I can't believe you Cloud Strife!"
I turned to walk away. But Cloud grabbed my arm and turned me around to face him.
"Why should I Cloud? You really hurt me!"
"I'm not done."
I looked up with my tears still flowing. I stared at him with my eyes still showing that I was hurt. His response shocked me.
"You're not pretty, you're beautiful. The only thing that's fat is your heart. I don't want to be with you forever. I NEED to be with you forever. And if you left, I wouldn't cry. I would die."
"Do you love me?"
He looked at me with his eyes once more. He smiled and pulled me into a hug, caressing my hair.
"More than anything in the world. I love you so very much Tifa."
I hugged him back. We stood there for a long time just hugging each other. I looked up at him as he pulled me into a kiss. I think I have never felt all this happiness well up inside of me in my life. A gust of wind blew and I heard a woman's voice. You're very lucky to have him. I mumbled to myself, smiling very happily,
"I know Aerith. I know."
I asked you if I was pretty, you said no.
I asked you if I was fat, you said yes of course.
I asked you if you wanted to be with me forever, you said no.
I asked you if you would cry if I left, you said no.
I had heard too much, and needed to walk away and,
As I walked away,
You grabbed my arm and told me to stay.
You're not pretty, you're beautiful.
The only thing that's fat is your heart.
I don't want to be with you forever, I NEED to be with you forever.
And I wouldn't cry if you walked away…
I would die.
