The Elegant Horses

Standard

Heroes on horses

Had rode my dreams

Their phantom love

All night I fought

The onslaught

Of their cupids darts

Against a rain of lovers

Missives I resisted

The kisses they fired

But still they came

And I with all my weaponry

Of molten iron hate

And steel beaten shield of fear

Killed only the horses

The elegant horses

Horses so beautiful

In sculpted form

Lay manes red in blood I shed

The horses slain.
