       After watching The Last Samurai, I was deeply touched...so touched i wrote a poem -even if poetry is not my especialty.

    dotsDagger Dancedots

    Death before shame,
    Honor to be restored
    Into his chest he pushes the dagger
    As his lover watches from behind the translucent door.
    Biting her carmine lip,
    Tears staining her face;
    Blood pooling on the hardwood floor.

    Harakiri last resort.

    Now he is gone,
    She stays behind
    To bear the pain;
    He took the shame,
    Drowned it in blood.

    She understands why,
    She cannot help but cry;
    Because love hurts
    Especially when he is Samurai.

      Ahh... I remember that movie.

    Actually, to the Japanese, this kind of 'suicide', which not exactly to be fit into the category (to them), was a kind honor, a pride as a 'hero', a man.

    Well, that was what they were in the ancient time. As for today, I don't really know about it. Might need to bother one of my Japanese friends to know about the story.

    Either ways, it was good to know the true meaning of it, on why some culture did some things that we couldn't really comprehend.

    Great write;).
