Re: To Those Bettas We Have Known and Loved

Under the chill of Michigan snow
Lays a piece of authentic joy
With fins that once fluttered and swirled
With eyes once so amber they burn
Always been too good to be true
A true blue fantasy

Under the whiteness of Michigan snow
Lays a figment of the loveliest dreams
Utopia was his land of origin
Painted in blue in honor of you
As pieces of hope cracks and shatters
He fought through one after another
Fighter, joy bringer, seasoned dancer
Long has he dwelled in the mind of this dreamer
Always been too good to be true
One true blue fantasy

Now sleeping under a blanket of Michigan snow
Frozen still on Earth and the heart of this dreamer
Soul now swimming free in the sea of time
Body laid here so the memory stays mine
Somewhere in an ocean in Utopia
His fins spread and flutter and swirl
His eyes so amber they burn
Fighter, joybringer, seasoned dancer
Long will he dwell in the mind of this dreamer
Indeed too good to be true
My true blue fantasy

--R.I.P dearest True Blue Fantasy, my first ever autolinking image splendens. This heart you left is as freezing as the snow you’re buried under. Within the twenty-five short days we’ve spent together, you’ve taught me so much about the world of aquarists. I wish we could spend more time in the same world, but I guess you’re just meant to be in a better place. I did brought you home because I missed my blue-eyed dog, but in the end I love you for who you are. Missing you now, forever and always. --

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something
