A Poem by Winter

A sword thrust
A bullet wound
A missing limb
For a worn nation
To the unknown king
I spill my blood
Enough to forget whose blood makes the river

Forever a sin
Forever at brink
Of destruction
My love for you
Is never at your hands' reach
Yet always at a weapon's reach

Whoa! Another war-themed masterpiece! Simple words, but put together in a powerful way. The last three lines are my favorite:

My love for you
Is never at your hands' reach
Yet always at a weapon's reach

My interpretation is the lost love has to be won back and guarded by the weapon - not sure if it is what you mean.
Thank you for your self-ad that led me to this beautiful piece!

Another eyebrow raiser Winter.
It's easier to cut down the source of the frustration - and the love - before it grows and makes a rose out of one's rapier.
