Give him a hot-shot of adrenaline,
for just a small added fee.
Make his eyes see again.
Bring him back to life,
no matter the cost in sin.
She needs him dearly.
His presence, his being,
the only thing she can see clearly.
Everything else beheld with doubt.
Locked in a prison,
his eyes the only way out.
Doctor, quick she has begun retreat.
Declaring love, while all he can see,
is the slow movement coming from her feet.
Complications abound here.
A constant battle to wage,
against the hate, pain and fear.
Abused ankles crack.
He hits the ground,
she follows, both under constant attack.
You are nothing.
The cunning enemy,
always comes up with something.
Crippled there, threatened by more,
he reaches for her,
finding the strength, deep in his core.
She glances his way.
Battered as she is,
she cries to him, begs him to stay.
So there they are, miles apart.
He feels her, she him, eternally connected,
by the heart.
With hope he looks to the sunrise.
For he has become immune,
to the constant lies.
He has died, a million times.
Yet still his heart beats,
still his lips spit poetic rhymes.
He was overdosed by the black.
His skull bashed in, throat slashed,
and still he comes back.
His heart thrown through a shredder.
He has reconstructed it,
so that it’s even better.
He fights on even after death.
Winning every battle,
even if it steals his breath.
Immortal he has become now.
This old soul,
never shall it fucking bow.
Never shall he break.
Thinking anything different,
was your first mistake.
He screams at the sky for more.
No reply is given,
he has already had all in store.
Perplexed, the enemy has become.
With a smile and a shrug,
he says here I come.
He has learned to fight.
His sword made from steel, blood,
and his own transcendent light.
The tide has turned.
He can only pray someday,
she will have learned.
