11. Boromir Speaks

From the movie scene that made me fall for Boromir.......... ~*~Boromir Speaks~*~ You give him no credit and yet he tries to do your will.... Father, why must you treat him thus? True, he is not my twin, my double he is unto himself, a different shade but none the less my brother for that, no less dear to me. He stands not in my shadow but rather, I in his light. I eat at his table, bathe in his being walk his path, read his stories; what he is becomes part of me his colors my own. Would you strike him down before my eyes if you care for me as you claim? Hew his beauty to fragments and you shatter mine as well. For each wound you deal him I bleed with his blood and my own bones splinter beneath my armor. I diminish with each shard that flies from his soul as you try to chip him into my own shape. Him alone I cannot defend, for you smite him from within. Why must you force me to rebuild his palace each time you lay it waste? .
