5. Family

Additional Disclaimer: This poem was adapted from "Friendship" by Elanor Garton. If anyone would like to see the original please email me. And yes, I did have permission to slaughter it.

Written from the point of view of Aragorn, about Arwen.

Maybe love is a good thing
I wouldn't know;
I've never known it

But maybe that's a good thing.
Love can
too, right?

Love can cause you
the same way as
and hurt can.

What would happen if you fell
in love
with your sister?

What would that do you do?

How would all the pain that
your sister hurt you?

But then she would be hurting
and you couldn't love her, right?

And what if you were caught;

The only way out is through

But she cannot kill you.
She cannot harm you.

For that will
her more.

What is family but

What is family?

What is love?
