INUYASHA/KAGOME/KIKYOU: The Gift of Letting Go
Note Spoilers - character death in manga:The recent manga arc that ended with chapter 465, left me wanting more of a final resolution between InuYasha, Kagome and Kikyou… so I had to go and write it myself. I love Rumiko, but sometimes, she's just a tad too sparse with the dialogue. This fic is Rated PG-13. If you prefer a (much) more explicit version, I've written an alternate ending, rated NC-17.
The Gift of Letting Go
The night I let her go
was not the night she left.
Paralyzed against a familiar prison
the hollow wound in my heart had to open
one last time, had to bleed itself out.
What fortune I received
Was not what I deserved.
My final release came in the claim of
she who remained to fill the void,
soothing me, moving me with her love.
The warm sun that rose when she lay in my arms
Was not the cool moon that found me alone.
Warm and safe, absent the emptiness,
a life within me returned to
wrap itself in her, the gift of letting go.
