Battlefield Awakening

A Poem

Battlefield Awakening

I’m up

Standing in a field of ash

Blood poured out my heart

Wounded deeply I lift my sword

Behold the cavalry arrived

For I was a boy in a mans game

But I forgot my battle was not against flesh and blood

But not now…

For I say unto my enemy:

“She is mine! I will not bow to your false claim!

I will fight! I am armored for a fight with you so that your whispers end forever

I know your plans! They will not flourish while my heart beats!"

I welcome this challenge

So that I may reveal my heart to my love

On full display without compromise.

For I am her champion.
