A girl from a beach town very far from Timbuktu. I love my jumpy English-cream dog-ish creature and the words flowing from my fingertips when inspired. A romantic by heart I love to read a good book or fly to a country across the seas.

You Were Gone, Yet You Stand Before Me

You were gone
Dead at my feet
I saw you fall in that battle 
And yet you fight me in this one
You were my partner
The man with his eyes on my back 
Just in case
You were my brother
My father's son 
You stood beside me as I cried 
At the sight of our mother's blood dried into the ground 
Once we fought together 
Now we fight each other
