Claymores Around Our Hearts

In light of a shadow
Cast over the runes
I am not positive
Our quiet war
Could have turned out
Any different
As all rings unravel
In the end
Sealed in
Self-fulfilling prophecy

Not certain
Anyone is to blame
For believing our bunker
Was anything more
Than a house of
Convenient cards

Not sure how a band of
Battled hardened brothers
Could break the bond
And turn their backs
Like dueling adversaries
Lost in time
But I have seen it happen

We answer
To our own devil first
Even when it means
Trading yourself
For a reflection too pale
And transparent
To recognize
And the endless mocking
Of ticking clocks
Reminds us
It has always been
Too late
