In the Sydney Q & A, Richard Armitage said he is going back to New Zealand to film The Battle of Five Armies, or should he say, the Battle of Six Armies, which includes The Armitage Army, of course. As we should be, the Armitage Army stands by our man. We will be there with him in spirit, and he knows it. He has seen us in the 700+ women and men who came to see him on May 1st in Sydney. He has met over the years in real life several of his Army troops, the latest being Meri & Lady Oakenshield in Sydney. I’ve been thinking about what that means to him. Whether he thinks about US as we think about HIM. I like to think that he does. That we are a tantalizing mystery to him as he is a tantalizing mystery to us. Imagine it.
And I thought of this sort of poem, dedicated to RA and his fans.
Dream lover, who are you loving tonight? Is your love real or are you dreaming?Dreaming of us?
We are part of each other now. You know us and we know you but we are dreams to each other. Each with our role to play in this dance of the unknown.
We put you together picture by picture, part by part. You tell but you don’t, you share but you won’t. But now that we’ve seen you, looked in your eyes, you have told us what we need to know. You are real.
Dream lover, you are always there for us we can count on you. We hope your lover is real we hope you are happy. But when you dream, you know you sometimes dream of us. As our lovers are real, but sometimes we dream of you.
We are part of you, you do not deny our existence. You have seen us and touched us and smiled at us. Do you wonder who we are, as we wonder who you are? We know that you do, that you wonder about us as we wonder about you.
Dream lover, we will dance, we will dream, we will forever be unknown to each other, yet know each other intimately, as only lovers do.
