A lonely, unbeaten warrior.
Like a warrior home from his last battle,
I piled dented shield and dulled sword
in an old dusty and locked room,
where only memories and loneliness rattle.
"I will fight no more, forever," upon my lips.

I piled dented shield and dulled sword;
to love no more was once my master plan.
Scars upon my heart would heal in time.
There were no more dragons to slay,
no more maidens to steal across the land.

in an old dusty and locked room,
“I will love no more, forever," upon my lips.
I lay alone in the dark shadow of a lover's moon
destined to remain a lonely, unbeaten warrior.
Oft offered heart slowly hardened, calcified.

Where only memories and loneliness rattle;
"Maybe it will stop beating, and none too soon.
I will know pain no more, forever," upon my lips.
One day into my life a young beauty wandered,
peering, through the long unused keyhole.

"I will fight no more, forever," upon my lips,
that lead into my carefully secured soul.
Slowly, as awakened from a dream, I pondered,
"I wonder if this is the end of forever," upon my lips.
I lifted door bars and disengaged rusted latches.

I piled dented shield and dulled sword,
slowly, carefully widening the oak-hewn door
that had been my heart's savior and salvation.
Could this be one of Cupid's unexpected matches;
"I will love you forever," upon our lips.
