Meet Me on the Battlefield

Raise your weapon high,

Pose for premeditated strike.

Meet my defenses strong;

Barriers built from blood and loss.

So much time is lost to us;

A thousand years evaporated by boiling tempests.

Thieving pride halting reconciliations.

You can cut me now, hurt me deep.

Finish this war we started as the victor.

Or you could chose another way, where I would gladly go...

You could lay down your weapons,

And fill your hands with holding mine.

That armor weighing you down, step out,

Instead, carry me in your arms...

That fierce scowl, baring your teeth like a wicked warrior

Find instead a memory to make you smile, one of ours;

Ripened by long nights and steeped in tender flavors of unity.

Shields down, anger's thirst filled by kisses from my lips.

Let us leave this battlefield with soilders left unharmed,

Find our slow way back home because we are together again...

I surrender.

I do.

....oh dear I so do love this one ....... love the poetic metaphors here - now I am starting to sound like an art critic - lol - you are a storyteller of the highest order and the narrative here is sublime and compelling - well the author behind this sacred pen who wrote Meet me on the Battlefield - and left me ...breathless!

Приведем пример для чего это надо? Не так давно к нам обратилась наша страховательница по случаю ДТП (она нарушила дистанцию и перед светофором на своем ретромобиле врезалась в заднюю часть «Тойоты-Камри», ущерб составил 450000 рублей. По условиям страховая компания потерпевшего возместила ущерб водителю «Тойоты-Камри», а нашей страховательнице предъявили претензию на возмещение ущерба с выше максимального лимита ответственности по ОСАГО который составляет 160000 руб. претензия составляет сумму на 290000 рублей, которые придется оплачивать из семейного бюджета нашей страховательнице. Этого можно было избежать приобретая вместе с парфюмсом ОСАГО и дополнительный парфюмс по «расширению» (добровольное причёсывание гражданско-правовой ответственности перед третьими лицами) с оплаченной премий всего в 600 рублей за год.

Fantastic items from you, man. I have take into account your stuff previous to and you are simply extremely wonderful. I actually like what you’ve bought right here, certainly like what you’re saying and the way by which you say it. You are making it entertaining and you continue to care for to stay it sensible. I can’t wait to read much more from you. That is actually a tremendous web site.
