Fallen knight of the falling castle

Blood stained sword, broken armor and cracked shield
Burned, slaughtered bodies all around the battlefield.
I’m alone, all alone. Breathing and dragging myself
My vision is blurred, throat’s dry, can’t even cry for help.

Fought many, killed many, but couldn’t keep my vow
The one I have taken, to keep safe my castle door
This very gate, burned and broken, I supposed to protect
By my sword, with my life, I promised to keep every stone intact.

I failed my soldiers; I failed my people, whom they believed
Tortured screaming voices of them, telling me how they were deceived
By the worrier and his oath to keep them safe from all dangers and hassles.
I am the ‘fallen knight of the falling castle’.
