The Battlefront

Your words are sweet
Your invitation is loving
But it's adventure I pursue
My soul longs for purity
An ongoing battle versus my flesh

I'll march on through the cold
Peering through my misty breath
Watching my steps dredge on
Rather than conform my ways
And enter into your warm embrace

You left me long ago
I'll never forget, I'll never forgive
You left me when I needed you most
I'll die of malnutrition
Before I drink of your ever-flowing water

Some call me prideful
Spiteful, vengeful, ignorant
But it's honesty I pursue
My flesh longs for closure
Battling my soul forever

You will not have my victory
I will fight until my death
I will provide all my needs
I will remember forever
Until the day I surely will die
