“I know everything I need to know about you,” she countered, taken aback.
“You do?” he asked, and peered at her, eyes intent. “You do, You have that look in your eyes from the forest, when you called me a monster.”
He came within a meter or two of Rey, and she wondered what would happen if she refused to move and they intersected. Would she find herself in his mind again, and have to endure his presence in hers? Could they actually touch, across a galaxy?
“You are a monster,” Rey said, remembering the terror of her paralysis on Takodana.
She stared back at him — and found his. eyes full of hurt. Hurt — and conflict.
“Yes, I am,” Kylo said, and there was no menace in his voice — only misery.”

How prophetic did this conversation between Leia and Luke become? Luke still a young man being advised by his sister that innocence is always under threat, especially when you’re fighting for a cause and against all the odds. At this point, Luke was still a little wet around the ears, a young man full of promise and ready to take on the Universe. It seems somehow more believable now looking ahead from this point towards what we know of Luke’s destiny. The Luke Skywalker we see in The Last Jedi has become precisely what Leia hoped he wouldn’t, and the force could not protect him from it.

Star Wars is Poetry has returned!

I doubt anyone will remember the little project I started on this blog called “Star Wars is Poetry”. I started it because I felt that Star Wars itself is a whole lot more than just the movies and people may not really know how poetic a lot of the star wars writing actually is. You don’t really get to experience much of it if any of it watching the movies but the books and the comics are actually full of hidden poetic treasures and I wanted to perhaps unearth and share some of them within my “Star Wars is Poetry” blog posts.

Star Wars is Poetry – “The Balance”

Star Wars is Poetry – here is a poem I put together using Rey and Kylo Ren/Light and Dark/The Balance of the Force as inspiration. Hope you like it!

The Balance Star Wars is Poetry

You
captured my heart
with a touch, with a touch
In a moment
lost in time’s embrace
We found our way to heaven

As darkness rises
In your light, I shall hide
until the pain, and the fear,
and the suffering
subside

For you
are the light
that saved me, that saved me
In that moment
lost in time’s embrace
We found our way to heaven

Star Wars is Poetry – The Emperor’s Warning

Darksider Blog Banner I can’t take any credit for finding this piece which I originally saw on a Reddit post. It comes from star wars comic Darth Vader #8 which might seem strange to use as a reference for Star Wars is Poetry, but when you look at the words and ‘feel’ those words, it doesn’t matter whether the source is a comic book, a film, a podcast or even a song; if the words have an impact on you, they are in my opinion, poetry.
