fortress sustained through
debased memories
no lover or enemy
can overcome

 faced with blood-stained territory
 a mind ill at ease
 feign ignorance
 at your complicity

those aren't the scars she left
but the ones you forged
reciting fairytales nightly
tears you didn't cry
dust over your eyes

 all you recognize

as lovers try to pry
the lack of her disguise
it's not your inability
but your wont to be
