Silk to Stone

Bruised, battered and scarred,

She cried to the Heavens while I kept guard.

I show her struggle, I show her pain,

trapped in the somber darkness she remains sane.

I am her armor, I am her pride.

She is my knight, alone in her forsaken stride.

Yielding, I am no more.

Together we are both stronger than before.
