Title: Holding On
Author: trialia/Trialia
Word Count: 69
Fandom: Battlestar Galactica (2004)
Rating: PG
Character/Pairing: Laura Roslin
Spoilers: N/A (post-mini-series)
Summary: Suddenly, the one is a part of the whole. [poem]


Still slide, slow fall;
as your fingers grip the edge
you can feel the strain
on your mind, your composure
pulling, ever harder.

Solitary in the centre of the crowd,
frozen in perpetual motion,
doing your best to help others
while knowing you can't help yourself;
holding yourself in contempt for being human,
and as you're told the truth,
you breathe, and you realise
that you need to hold on to this,
if 'this' will get you through.

Survive - keep them alive.

Aww, thank you! ^_^ This one came a lot more easily than most of my fanfiction. I think I'm going to have fun with Laura. *g*

Oh, that's /lovely/! It's so very her... the whole thing, but especially the last two lines... and solitary in the centre of the crowd / frozen in perpetual motion are such strong images!

Thank you, darling! :) I'm glad of that. That bit especially was very much a synaesthetic sound for me...
