The Last Battle

A moment in time
Above them all I rose
In the passing hours
Thorns delve deeply into my mind

Conflicting battlefields
Built for digression
Blinding tears give way
To fogs binding the emotions

Strength to fight subsides
Will to live collides
With the desire
Of lying down in peaceful fields

The darkest places in my mind
Crystal iced palaces
Tame the infuriated furnaces living inside
Quieting the battles one last time
