Description: I'd like to say this describes one person in my life...
but so far there are at least three..
Basically it's just more bullshit about trying to leave it behind and as The Who once sang I "won't get fooled again"
(I will though)
the one to fall -------------------------------------------
How long did you stare at my shirttails before forgetting my face?
And destroying the foundation of a life I set out for you
A life thought out for your sake, not for mine
I tried to be your hero, tried to ride in with my armour tarnished
With sin and scorn from self lost battles
Wars waged for knowledge, to protect those of my blood
Yet as my back showed so did the cracks
The small lies and promises unintended
And your eyes set sight on the fools
The ones who turned your mind from the truth, and towards their own gain.
I never thought you were the one to fall
So I turn from you again, to the nothing that advances
Not that the sparkling lies would let you notice
Nor the pit you now dwell, let you go
I shall leave with you my armour, now battered and rusted
As this will be the last battle I shall lose
You shall be the last family I shall lose
This was fantastic I love the idea of the armour being yours and then you passing it on when you realise they will need it more than you because they are so consumed in the lies. Makes me think of lots of family bull[censored] where you spend all your time trying to protect something or someone and keep it all together and then it gets thrown back in your face. My favourite line was: "A life thought out for your sake, not for mine" The unselfishness of that is beautifull I loved it. No criticisms here a nicely written piece ~Sunset
