This is a little work inspired by DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow. If you aren’t watching it already (and why the heck NOT?!?), this could be an internal monologue for the lead female character, who DC & CW allowed to be a lesbian – so any “she/she” references I make are gender correct, and not just my legendarily fat fingers. Enjoy

What Shall I Be?

Leader Or Lover?
Sister-in-arms or girlfriend embraced?
The tough captain or the soft, warm other half?

How do you decide between two heartaches, knowing that both will remind you of what you’re setting aside, and of what could have been? Both choices leaving you to wonder whether the love each brings, will outweigh the hurt they will cause.

So you look into her eyes, seeing your own torture mirrored, and you both make the conventional, the reasonable, the logical choice – and then go your ways quickly.
So she won’t see your tears, and you hers. Once again, you’ve chosen against love. Once again, you ask those words that will endlessly haunt your thoughts:

Why can’t I choose love?

    Welcome back, yet again!!
    Lovely little piece.
    As for Legends of Tomorrow…. We’ve given up commercial TV for Netflix, YouTube, and now, Amazon Prime, none of which are carrying it locally. In the wilds of rural Ohio, you get better entertainment than I do, here in civilized Southern Ontario.
    For REAL entertainment, we’re going to visit BrainRants in August. All non-redacted details will be available on my site. 😀 See you there.

    My daughter watches this show so I read this to her. She loved it, and thought it was very touching and fitting. She also told me she will disown me if I don’t start watching it with her asap.

    I like the tone of it, and can relate to it from a human point of view. I’m glad you’re back!

    John! John! Come out and play – or at least drop us a line to tell us that you’re okay. 😀
