My Nights In Shining Armor Come.


My Nights In Shining Armor Come.




My nights
in shining

armor come
and in them
I find shelter,
from the slings

and arrows
of stress that
pummels me


the day.

I don thier

black weight
and venture forth
alone with my
chain mail thoughts,
to mount

the steed
of dreams

who runs
boldly through

the twisted
landscapes of


I slay what's

been dragon
me down

severing it's
ugly rearing head
before it devours

my hopes .

My lance

is a pen
and I swing it
in long strokes
sweeping doubt and
disillusion from my path.

Once a slave

to a royal typewriter
attempting to

woo fair maidens
with sonnets of love,
I now ride boldly
over the white fields
of endless possibilities
forging straight

ahead online
and doing the

write things
in the kingdom

of web

Leads, this is a fantastic write - I wonder though can you apply some line spacing as it feels like a quick run-on thought - it's beautiful and one of the best I have read of your distinguished poetry.kelyi from OMC
