Fallen Hero - Poem by T.. Veronica

I wanted to save you,
And in all my heroism, I had not wisdom
To know that I’m the one who has fallen.

~~

My very core has been frozen
Ice cold, jagged and sharp.
Tears that cannot flow, if they cannot begin.

~~

I pass through here as a shadow
Upon judgement, I will be seen as the sinner.
For I have chosen exile.

~~

And now, I don’t want to save you.
For your apathy has consumed me.
Suddenly, I know exactly how it is to be you.

~~

Unscathed, Derailed.........Detatched......


That’s the true power of your Love.
