The Crossing Of Soldiers















I have been on this battlefield many times before. I have seen corpses rise like flowers in spring to face the fate you bring, to battle the same battle, time and time again. I have seen them rip off their shrouds and put on ancient armour, just to be struck through the heart, once more. To find peace in the earth. To sleep. Until they are called upon again.

yesterday you were my safe haven, my sanctuary, all i could ever need. today you feel like the thing that's been trying to destroy me for my entire life.

i'm lost and calling out to you, but you don't hear a single word..

The gap in my heart widens
Everytime I think of you.
I thought of you a knight in shining armor
I was just the target on your battlefield...

I knew they looked familiar. Each and every time, I just had that feeling.
