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.
