Men stand amongst the storm
Robed in their pseudo strength
Which dupes them into thinking
that their discontened hearts
are protected.

Not realizing that the storm,
created by the antagonist
Forces the soldier into war
with the collaborator that he needs
to weather him through.

His ally now becomes his foe
Beauty now becomes lackluster
Love now becomes a weapon
which he battles with and against.

He becomes the frontrunner
because the Genesis affliction
for his feminine opponent
keeps him as such.

His victories
bring despair
and triumphs 
become defeats of the heart.

Caught in the vacuum
of oppressed thinking
he fears to seek after
what he wants the most...
