Shallow Armor, Outer Skin

Shallow armor, outer skin
Your words cut to the core
Dare I ever attempt to win
Bathed in the bloody gore.

Your words cut to the core
Leaving nothing in their path
Bathed in the bloody gore
In the wake of your bitter wrath.

 

Leaving nothing in their path
You break this heart at last
In the wake of your bitter wrath
The final die has been cast.

 

You break this heart at last
Dare I ever attempt to win
The final die has been cast
Shallow armor, outer skin.
