Knight

O white knight with your black heart

there’s a scab on the foot of your horse

And the rust from your sword

is staining your armor.

 

Shut down your visor

your eyes are as blue as your veins

that snake their way up your arms.

There’s a chill in them. I freeze.

 

O white knight with your black black heart

don’t whisper falsities and fallacies and lies

Your song is tuneless to the trained ears.

Your lips may move but there’s silence.

 

There was a trap that you named loved

I skipped over it, rebounded, fell right in

But gravity knows not sides to take.

You fell in the one I set for you.

  1. Loved it! Especially this part:
    “There was a trap that you named loved
