Life in Armour

We fought in our Armour,
We loved in our Armour,
We lived in our Armour – together,
(apart.)

We talked in our Armour
We made love – still in our Armour, together,
(apart.)

Eventually,
We broke our own hearts,
Because we could no longer ‘connect’,
Through our Armour.
We cried – inside our Armour, together,
(apart.)

.

It is how we live today, after all.
It is how we love.

.

Is it any wonder then,
that we smash the world to bits?
beating at it with our fists?

Is it any wonder then,
that we feel the need to Explode in Violence?
So that we can break through our Armour:
– Just to be Seen?
– Just to be Heard?

Is it any wonder then,
that we feel the need to Explode in Violence?
– just so that we may,
finally,
connect,
without our Armour,
(no longer apart.)
