Beyond the path without you,
is a forgotten promise to keep.
We may have walked side by side,
but now we go on back to back.
And though our paths may not cross,
all paths are connected somewhere.
When I arrive at where you are,
we may not appear to be as we were...
But we'll make another promise to keep.
A commission for a high school friend of mine (who actually asked for it about a year ago =_____=;; ).
I figured the line of the poem "We may have walked side by side, but now we go on back to back," was appropriate for this picture (it's from the poem at the end of Reverse/Rebirth in Re:CoM). Although, the poem probably doesn't refer to Riku and Sora at all, I singled out that line of the poem and looked at it a different way.
Anyways, the story depicts Castle Oblivion as a defining moment for these two characters, with Riku dealing with his darkness and Sora acknowledging his connection to those around him.
