The Silent Sword
Half the Fortress
The mirror reveals a twin core,
But no one can see anything more.
For only one core they're able to see,
The one part that isn't even me.
The one in the mirror is
Stronger and wiser.
The one who reflects me is
Warmer and kinder.
But he appears to be hollow,
A non-existent young man.
He's everything yet a shadow,
To see him only I can.
He shouts in the dark,
To let him out.
I'm sorry to say,
I don't know how.
Of me, he may be only a portion,
A part of someone cold and heartless.
Of me, he is only a different version,
The greater part of Half the Fortress.
