When we were Titans

Written by: Jayne Eggins

once upon a time
 we laughed 

clutched hands
 and loved shamelessly
 fearlessly protective
 when her back was turned
 
I caught every arrow
 dodged every snare
 swallowed every poison
 until I gasped for breath
 
reaching for a hand
 that is no longer there 

once we were Titans
