A single tear vestiges on the raw face of a torn heart
Never offering comfort to the ever-bleeding soul
To most, the grip of death is strong and unforgiving, yet
In light of the burning torment, it would be most welcome.
An to have all hope washed to a pitiless abyss
Whose meager existence; from grievance it sprung
The fire of a warrior’s blood slows to a dieing ember,
Enclosed within an undying body

A wandering mind long left the heart
Reasons; no sweet hope left in reasons,
Nor shall reasons reach thy ears, only incessant pleadings of those seeking solace in the warrior’s outwardly strong presence.

Alas! The warrior eagerly awaits this abyss,
Beyond, lies an infinite depth
Where the heart is eternally doomed to sleep; tranquility

No sleep shall come; no death ever to dive gratefully down from the haven;
To wipe life from the still strong body, it too seeking succor
Searching, scouring the land for all that was lost at the tip of a deadly blade; where the fate of so many lay.
So fruitless a search

A mindless soul, a soulless mind, an existing shell;
Filled with sorrow


------
~The steel cage around my heart fell~
~Broken by your soft touch; your sweet kiss~
~I was afraid~
~Yet you took my hand and told me it was all ok~
~You took that knife away~

Oh!
Oh! Very good.

A mindless soul, a soulless mind, an existing shell;
Filled with sorrow'

That had to be my favorite line.
