A boy masquerading, half-face sweet.
Poison behind the mask, secrets beneath
A captivating night in brilliant steel,
Reflecting faces, concealing the beasts.
A maiden fair or a maiden scared.
The beasts emerge from their knightly lair.
Lobes boil, the half-face tears,
The beast in armor wonders if he dare...
A boy stuck between the beast and the knight,
Grizzly tendencies threaten with strife.
Torn by morals, steely knives,
Will the boy ever feel he's alright?
A maiden oblivious, a maiden smitten.
A boy teeters, now righteous, now wicked.
Heavy hearts breed throbbing heads,
And a tongue stained with sickening dread.
It is the tears we shed;
That make our smiles so sweet.
And the loves we bleed;
That put worth to heart beats.
