This was yesterday’s. Didn’t get it out in time.
You were my defender
My sinew, my strength
My shield against peril
Dare I call you a knight in shining armor?
No, that’s so cliche
Despite your momentary protection
Nothing about you was shining
Beset with gore and scars of war
I had long since exposed myself to you
Never questioned your allegiance
I didn’t realize you had turned on me
That you’d grown tired of fighting for us
You took your sword to my heart
I am slain
One more casualty of your inner battle
