They always seem to win,

 

Stealing away my show,

 

She gazes away from my path,

 

As sacrifices to gods of old,

 

Bleeds me of my life,

 

Fresh blood gleams on their swords,

 

As one more failure gives rise,

 

The hate is wielded so black,

 

Blacker than the soul in me,

 

To die on my cross,

 

A messiah to the end,

 

In the fen of shadows,

 

Where things gather to spin fate,

 

He takes her hand,

 

To lead her to all that is holy,

 

As I burn in the flames,

 

Of a Hell of my own making,

 

She looks my way one last time,

 

Hesitation the deadly crime
