Sometimes the sun goes ’round the moon.There isn’t a lot left to do, He’s been found again and again. Even more ripples in the sand, growing and growing and growing. Before it all they’d been so close, Even apart they’d known they were united. Siblings in all but blood, Their souls knew one another as soon as their eyes met.
You wondered how you’d make it through.For years and years they fought side by side Only for it to change in the blink of an eye; Right and wrong changed in his mind. Lost and confused, he didn’t know which way to turn. A far away dream or the life he’d always had? Silly though it may seem, he found this life was not The one for him; he chose to drift away.
But now we’re standing face-to-face.Years went by and she did not stay his hand Only stepped in after the damage was done, Undoing what she could and mourning what she can’t. When finally she was there, catching him in the act. Events slowed to a crawl and his face morphed from glee to disdain. Not going to stop me? he asked, taunting her with her inabiltiy. The moment passed and steel encased her heart.
Just when I thought our chance had passed.Anceint responsibilites flooded her mind and she knew she could Never let him complete another actions like this. Don’t think, she spoke with ice, that inaction equals inability. Silvery light tinged red flooded her hands And a sword sharp and ready grew within the plam. Vengence was not on her mind as she swing the blade Even though this man in front had killed her brother before all else. Deadened eyes still wept as the dance of death began.
You go and save the best for last. -Vanessa Williams
Inspired by the song “Save the Best for Last” by Vanessa Williams running through my head all morning. It would not leave me alone and this story/poem demanded to be written as a result.
Also, I’m slightly mourning the lack of Trifectra prompt/challenge for this week even though I understand the reasons behind it closing.
