In Respects to the Fallen

A little late but a poem in respects to the fallen.


With every storm, with every rage

We managed to simulate a warlike stage

Revealing your tyranny

Exposing my vulnerability


The repetition of the vicious destruction

Always reinstates the pain

And the nightmares never end

Because I always dream a different ending


I would have died for you

Sacrifice myself for you

Lead the line to

make sure nothing touches you

But a soldier falls only

For what’s worth falling for

And you are not that


So I retreat

But not in defeat

So don’t overthink this behest

It’s simply in my side’s best interest
