Martyrdom

Published by at 2:35 pm under Sad Love Poems

I’ll kneel here, defeated, as they beat me.
I’ll be silent, strong as ever, despite how they treat me.
I’ll take on all their rage, their hatred, their pain,
Because I’ve nothing to lose and they’ve nothing to gain.
And should my god-hewn armor start to chafe,
I’ll rest easy knowing that your safe.

Because no matter the pain that I endure,
No matter the ailments without cure,
My only concern is what happens to you,
Because I love you and you know it’s true.
So I’ll face these heathens and all their bluster,
And I’ll take on all the torment they can muster.

As I suffer my final hours,
I will but thank the mystic powers,
That made sure you were spirited away,
Because they’d kill you to if I’d let you stay.
I will go unto my death unafraid,
Because while you’re safe, in the ground I’ll be laid.
