OH MAH GAWD. <3
Ode to the Lovely Violeta Peralta
Raindrops fall on a hopeless soul
Drenching her with sorrow
Worry is a heavy burden on her heart
Her love hasn’t returned home
He’s behind bars, captured by the evil men
Military eyes follow her every move.
The feeling of paranoia envelops her.
“Have you seen my husband, Pedro?”
Everywhere she went she carried these words on her lips.
The passionate pain of her longing
An absence of a man whom she may never see again
No one left to house her loneliness
All caused by a man whose intentions were ever so bitter.
As tears fell, an everlasting search begun
Hopelessness, and uncertainty murders a soul,
More than being aware of his death.
Alas, the agony is inescapable
Thoughts of her husband, inevitable in her mind,
Eating away her innermost thoughts.
Past her fear, loneliness, uncertainty
Fighting in her own war among others
Sang a song,
Danced a dance.
Intertwined in her melodies was a message of resistance.
Her love as deep as the sea
Shall be written on a gravestone, as permanent as ever
Never be forgotten, always remembered, and always celebrated.
An inspiration to all,
Oh dear Violeta, such a remarkable woman you are!
Might as well..
