Walking away

It just happened, a chance encounter
Different employers, the same job
Find the girl

We worked together, partners
You had my back, I yours
It just made sense

Traveling together, far and wide
Arid parching deserts, oppressively humid jungles
The world was ours

There were none better, at the peak of our professions
Mercenaries, guns for hire
Paid up front

You changed, all you wanted was to kill
I stayed true, helping those without hope
Tension mounted

We found her, after so many years
Dead, decaying and discarded
Our failure

The father, elated by our arrival
Our news, his soul wept
Time was our enemy

Our discord, failure triumphed
A change, it was overdue
Time to walk away

Cobbled together from bits of a dream I’ve been having over the past few weeks. No idea what its all supposed to mean, at least its out of my head now.
