Tribute: Legends of the Fall

Poetry By: julistar
Poetry



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
v
julistar
v
ecstatic in the extreme
your eyes all agleam
do you love me as you descend
your passion burning down to the end
v
anger stains your cheeks
as you look beyond me and seek
your brothers two and adjust
your focus and distrust
v
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
v
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
