HeartSleeve


And now in

The silence of

After I survey

The damage finding

Carnage and my

Own heart once

Again beating on

My sleeve when

Will I learn

Not to lead

With my heart

Using it to

Shield to strike

To hack stab

And scar finding

It there dirty

Bleeding and beating

I pick it

Up and place

It back into

The coffer of

My chest mount

The steed of

My respect and

Trot on to

The next battle
