This poem was inspired by the anime Vision of Escaflowne. Romance plays a big part in that anime, and there's one pairing I especially like: Van and Hitomi.
Probably the main reason I like that pairing is because they're not immediately attracted to each other (as pretty much every other pairing is). They don't simply hate each other either, but Hitomi slaps Van a couple times and Van tends to be an insensitive twit towards the beginning. Nevertheless, since their destinies and powers are linked, they end up saving each other's lives time and time again, until they're nigh inseparable.
Originally, I was going to write a fan poem, but when I looked at what I'd written, I saw that it's not necessarily a fan poem anymore. It works perfectly with Escaflowne, but it could be for other things as well.
I took the title from the final episode of Escaflowne.
