(A poem that looks at the sacrifices that were made in order to keep the great Helen of Troy)

The Horizon, Now is Dark
Dark As Crimes That Brought Them'

Filled With My Impending Dread
My Foolish Actions, So Many Good Men Lost

A Thousand Sails Approaching
Sent Here In My Good Name

To Reclaim The One I Stole
And Destroy The Walls of Troy

Desire Leaves Me Numb
To All Pain Surrounding Me

Storms Will Arise To Condemn Me
Yet I Will Not Die Before Her Eyes

It Ends Tonight Tragically Tonight
I Must Accept Penance Earned

She Is Cursed And Tonight Love Dies
In The Dawn Of This, My Tragic End

I Hold Me Sword True
Ahh, I Must Let Her Go

It Ends Tonight And I Am Alone
Pain Filles Her Eyes, Still I Am Alone

I Must Save My Honor
Yet I Cannot Let Them Win

Blood Of Many Will Spill
The Sacred And The Profane

In Our Love. And In Our Death
