For those of you who are reading, or have read Running With Wolves, the third chapter in the Ballad of the Emerald Bard Saga, you know that Aloucia of the Fae, and El'Mindeeya Do'Katal have a 'history' that's alluded to. The following poem is a song Deeya wrote for Aloucia while they were together, way back when they were first exploring a romance together. So please enjoy this glimpse into the beginning of their doomed relationship, long before Deeya realized that Aloucia was a being that belonged in the wild, that could never have any form of leash around her neck....

Humor is an amazing little trait. Its hard to say that its natural, when so many people work so hard at it, and achieve it. But it does seem to be something that some people have naturally. I personally have to work at it, just a tad, when I’m writing.
It seems that I’ve been writing far too serious stuff for me to calmly interject humor into just anything I write. Which is sad, because I’m pretty humorous in person. I partially wonder if it’s a thought process thing, since writing to me is so far removed from talking. Both are quite natural to me, but this writing thing feels a bit different because its more of a monolog.

Hate has been around for a very long time. It seems that since humanity has began, people have hated one another for whatever reason they can. One thing about society growing, is the fact that most of these lines are starting to blur or disappear.
Admittedly, I will always be able to stand by my friend David, and we’ll be able to be told apart by the different colors of our skin. The fact is, we both know it. We both know that not only is there a pigmentation difference, society sees us in different ways. He joking laughs how he’s the only black man he’s ever known that hasn’t been in the back of a police car. Its just a sad fact of being alive today, no matter how good the joke is
