The Prideful

5:11 AM

Same time

When lonesomeness decided to consume everything

Along with that cheerful disposition 
Letting it permeate throughout the tunnels of my consciousness

Like a knight in battle I waved the white flag

Took off the steel enveloping my fragile soul

Surrendered my being to the rightful

I was a chess piece 

Used to protect the honored 

I moved as expected for who it was fighting this war

Drained to the very last until I could no longer do

Injured watching from the sidelines as it finally surfaced

What it was you were truly fighting for
