*This is my second Legacy poem. Like the first one this too is about Sean and Marita. I stopped trying so hard and gave up on rhyming. I believe this one is like a 100% better than "I shouldn't love you." I hope you all agree.
Note: This can be from either perspective. When I wrote it I was thinking of Marita but I realized that it works either way.
The world is a strange place that I do not understand,
all is conflicted and all is at war.
The more of it I accept, the more I die.
Bit by bit, piece by piece, of me is lost in the war.
Out of the darkness you rise like a phoenix,
to lead me to the truth I have always known...
Love is the way, and you are love.
I breathe a sigh of relief-
piece by piece you give me back the missing parts of myself.
I am whole again-invincible,
nothing they can do to me matters.
Beat me, berate me, throw me to the dogs...
I will take it all and still more while screaming your name/
in rapture and in defiance of their foolish laws.
I pity them, truly I do.
They waste their time on us; our love cannot be destroyed.
Long after we are gone they will feel our love, our strength.
They may win the battle, but we've won the war.
