A Knight's View

An Anonymous Submission

Do those aqua eyes hide lies as you enter this castle?
Who will be the champion of your heart tonight?
Not me. I am too tall or my hair is too long.
I am not the one for whom you write your love songs
I will not forfeit my favor to you or play the game
I doubt you even know my name
You with the penetrating eyes and golden hair
Something of suffering shows in your face
I watch you stare at him as you sit and wait
Why are you here again, dear lady?
Are you a glutton for punishment?
Like me, you have seen love come and go
You won't find a knight here to be your Romeo
Our hearts are hardened from swordplay and dirt
We won't take a chance and risk being hurt
But you do
