Tribute: Legends of the Fall

Poetry By: julistar

Legends of the Fall is one of my favouritest movies.

It's a torrid love affair with Brad Pitt. His little brother dies in the war to prove he can be brave like Brad, his father suffers a near fatal stroke breaking his heart when Brad goes missing for a number of year and finally his brother's wife kills herself on finally acknowledging that she can never have Brad.

A bit over the top for real life but that's why this works for me as a movie.

Watch it some time. There are some cool lines such as "He was a rock they broke themselves against however much he tried to protect them."

Tribute: Legends of the Fall
ecstatic in the extreme
your eyes all agleam
do you love me as you descend
your passion burning down to the end
anger stains your cheeks
as you look beyond me and seek
your brothers two and adjust
your focus and distrust
he who brought me home died in the war
he who I loved, loved the cherokee girl more
and you who won my body in the spoils
jealousy tore into your heart and now recoils
bitter flavor of happiness lost stings
those who loved tristan most must bring
their crazy hearts to the final toast
to the legend of an unholy ghost
