You have some really nice imagery here. :) I particularly like the line "Bella, we danced with the stars as crows." It's a lovely description. And the wordplay of "gutter, gutted" appealed to me. It was quite clever. Nice work.

Darling, I don't even know what to say. I thank you, a thousand times over, for having the heart to write something about me. I'm unworthy.

"A belladonna among the dandelions." First of all, I love this opening line, particularly because of its ambiguity: it can either mean 'a beautiful woman among the dandelions' or 'deadly nightshade among the dandelions.' The latter interpretation pretty much rocked my world. :D

"Gutter, gutted." Clever.

"We admired the same moon." I'm glad you chose the moon and not the sun. Two sisters, separated, knowing that they see the moon with the same eyes.

I like the star/crow imagery; it feels very Native American to me.

"We are a rare breed." Indeed. We've been through Hell and managed to come out on the other side with an inch of our integrity still intact.

"We will lose ourselves in a velvet universe." I almost cried at that image. It's breath-taking.

"With a smile that could break and angel." -smirk- I'll take that as a compliment, love.

"Dear heart." That and "Dear one" are my favourite terms of endearment.

Three final statements:

1. -HUG-

2. We're warriors!

3. Ciao Bella. ;)
