A Promise dies as petals burn

You do not love me                                                                                  
Love is more than just a word                                                                
Thorns have reached their depth

Enemy at the Gates

sent to the slaughter
caught between levels of hell...
neither one he chose

he lay amidst death
destiny arrived on time
alive…it chose him
