The Next Storm.

He stands

Willingly

Sword and shield in hand

Fragments of armor intact

Battle scars exposed

Under the scorching sun.

 

He tells her to run

She refuses

“No, i’m not leaving you!”

He nods

Not in agreement

But in awe of her angelic presence

 

Perplexed by recent choices

A Kings-guard

Betraying a Kingdom

Out of love,

Was this selfish?

 

Dropping his armaments

He hugs her, teary eyed

She feels his emotions

If only for a second.

The ground starts to tremble.

 

A stampede of armored Knights

Approaching from a distance

He readies his arms.

Looking into her eyes

For what may be the last time.

 

He dashes off

hell-bent on winning

The plan?

Meeting the army head-on

 

For once,

He was not fighting for entertainment,

Selfish desires or gold

For once,

It was not for the approval of his King

For once,

He was fighting for what he believed in

He was fighting,

For ‘them’.
