Lorna

The Arrows of Time

When young and strong

The stance of men

Confident and agile

They could lift the world

Wanted you to believe it

Until it reflected back to them

From your captured heart

It was unassailable

Their assurance

But left you unprepared

For when the years rusted the armor

And the visor parted

To unmask the vulnerable eyes beneath
