The moonlit path (2)

"

someone once said that life and love are what we make of them…so what if i have mad my love nothing more than a memory…a past existence of a mysterious and beautiful landscape of flowers, trees, lightning bugs, and our love together…we used to dance on that moonlit trail until we couldn't stand…or at least until our alarms would wake us and remind us of these things called lives that we lead…this is no life…and this is no home…this is an establishment made to set me up for my own disaster, whether it be in love or in school, this household has done nothing but hinder me…my brother is nothing more than a beneficial backstabber who acts too much like his father…my sister nothing more than a spoiled brat…my parents nothing more than the hollowed shells of a slave driver and an overprotective instigator…and the boys?…nothing more than burdens placed upon this household and a bunch of attention whores at that…then i sit at the back of my own mind and think of how i was put here…or better yet…how have i survived thus far?…
in life i am a geek to some…an ex-football player to others…and then to some i am a knight…who i truly am…the protector of the weak…and that's exactly where i want to be…between the deadly blow of an attacker’s weapon and the defenseless victim…but over the past week i have felt less like a knight, and more like the damsel in distress…around every corner i find nothing but dead-ends and trouble waiting to happen…each day i wonder when i ad my secret lover will be discovered…though we have been found by some…it isn't enough to stop our love…this weeks events have weakened the armor that protects my lover, but even more the armor that covers me…
tonight i call upon Hephaestus, the smith of the gods to repair my armor and make me whole again…because when the attackers come for my love, and the time comes that i be a martyr for what i believe in, and the men of both houses come to crucify me for what i have done…then i need the strength and courage to do what it is my duty to do…stand up to all those who question our love…
i pray that what happened to our moonlit path wont repeat itself upon the flourishing field we shared today…
keep me in your thoughts, prayers, hopes, and dreams
-Thomas(the knight)"

The End
