The Mage and the Swordsman

By Elmina


What do you hide behind that smile
What do you see when you look at me?
Why do you stay by my side
While you know I am not what you see.

* * * * * * * *

Why do you seem so distant
What are you trying to disguise?
Are you like the fire deep in your eyes
Or have you become as cold as ice?

* * * * * * * *

There's something strange about you, boy
But that something makes me like you
Maybe we could trust each other
Aren't you willing to try that, too?

* * * * * * * *

That mysterious look on your face...
Are you thinking about me?
No need to hide it away
This is where I want to be.
