Gallant Knight

You showed up at my door step

Singing sweet songs about love

Making charming appearances,

Intentionally departing after dawn

***

Confidently distant

Consistently inconsistent

Mostly unavailable

Almost unattainable

Displaying your merits

Through honorable labors

***

Coming and going in cycles

Like the moon rising at night

Your temper seemed secure

Like that of a gallant knight

***

Unruffled by your fear

I offered a safe space

For your heart to find some rest

And explore a new frontier

***

Your armor slowly dissolved

To reveal a different soldier

One covered with scars

From many past wars

Waged in failed attempts

To make conflict become exempt

***

Hiding underneath the wounds

Was a kind and gentle soul

Longing to drop his shield

And call someone his home

***
