Warrior Woman ~
Ah yes, she be a beauty…
never a finer woman did grace the land.
From the tip of the toes to the top of that pretty little head.
Ah yes, she be beautiful indeed.
But you would be mistaken my good sir at trying to take advantage of one such as her
whether in body, mind or soul, as she would send all three of yours straight to hell for the
devil to collect his due.
Flaming red be the color of her hair, burning much like her heart that beats in a warm bosom that knows no peace, nor solace in the silence between the madness that is always sure to come after.
Every turn of her blade is poetry…every dance a death sentence to her partner.
Care to be clever, to compel her to be contrite, or woo her with wicked words
and she shall simply cut your tongue out.
Yet, she hopes, endures for that day, when a compliment to her nature crosses her well worn path, fights through all her misgivings, deep protected fears, and wrestles her to the ground, flings her blade from her hand and drives the darkness away.
