The moment you realize you 
have been checkmated, all your 
strategic moves have failed, the 
walls you put up weren't as 
sturdy as you thought, some 
how your warmth found my 
guarded heart, I thought an 
entire army couldn't reach me , 
it only took a beautiful woman 
with long black hair, she has a 
rocky past but so do I, why 
should that compromise the 
chance of happiness, we're two 
lonely souls that drifted into 
each others arms in this 
moment you got me in
