“People are going to see right through this.”
“Really? All you need to do is smile and nod when talked to.”
“Others are going to think that’s weird behavior for a boyfriend.”
“People don’t care about you. I just need another bangle on my arm for decoration.”
Leaving it all behind was going to be hard
Everyone knew her name, her story
Giving up everything to save their nation and their world
Eventually losing her left eye and arm in the dragon’s fire
Now she quietly sits in the town square every day and enjoys what sun there is
Determined to let her legacy pass into myth and…
That time when you were it, yeah remember that time?
All you wanted to do was not be it!
Give your left arm to be it now, wouldn’t you.
Smelling your perfume on your pillow lingering with me in bed
Covers draped over my chest like your arm was
Every memory of you comes flooding back
Now you’re gone, so I get up and give your pillow another spritz.
That way I can wake up to you again tomorrow.
Fraser combed his arm hair against the grain
Unleashing waves of golden amber hair to crash back upon hardened muscle
Rays of sunlight danced upon the same golden coat covering his back
Really he figured he should shave some of it off
Yet there was the fun of the mystique of being part werewolf that he enjoyed
The desire from human contact
On the arm, shoulder, a full hug
Unties stress and allows us to feel like we belong
Critical to our wellbeing
He took it too far though
Even when I slipped him the twenty
Xavier didn’t let me in
That ticked me off. I mean it was a twenty
Rachel patted my arm and whispered into Zavier’s ear
And he blushed and opened the velvet rope for us
Kissing his new bride made Gene so happy
Now all they had to do was walk down the aisle
Offering his arm, he escorted his wife down the stairs
Too bad his shoelaces had come undone. He should have tied more than one…
Freedom to begin again greeted the Fox Battalion
Recent loses during the war had decimated their group
Even their commander, General Talli, had lost an arm and a leg
Still they had plenty of fight left in them
How could they not? It was all any of them knew how to do.
Staring at the assembled battalion
Talli began her speech
“Although peace has been costly, bought by spending many lives
Really the hard work now begins. They think they don’t need us now
They are mistaken.” Her troops fired their weapons into the air in response
