The Fallen

So here we are once again,
All bloody and stained
From the skin of our enemies
And the hearts of our friends.

Confused by the blood that was spilt,
You stand there with you face upturned.
Toward the blue sky that you cannot see,
For your eyes are painted in red.

Slowly you turn towards the mayhem
That you have just joined part in.
Too bad that you can’t take it back;
Not that you would want to.

If only you had a heart
That was bigger than your hatred.
You need to leave but are stuck,
Stuck in all the glory of your pain.

You close your eyes slowly
And you hurt from the pain that you don’t feel
You don’t feel it because that would show weakness
And you, my friend, you are not weak

The weak cannot destroy the lives
That you stole today
Weakness is in the heart
And the flesh

We all know your secret
The one that you thought was forgotten
We know where you come from
We know you are hell.

You try to leave
But are condemned
To stay here in the wrath
Of all of your enemies.

Remember your death?
You should.
I do.
It was tragic.
You were almost there
To take the throne
But you failed
And are now unknown.

Although you are dead
You still roam the earth
In your spirit form
Where no one but the Others can see you.

They do not know you are dead
For they know not of their own deaths
Even though they relieve their tragic deaths every night.

That is the fate you have brought upon yourself.
To die each night
The way you died tonight.
Without your glory.

For it is your pride which killed you
That which was afraid to call upon another for help
Your pride has taken your life
And now you must suffer.

You are not Human
You are not Death
You are not Spirit
You are Fallen.
