The Knight Who Stands Before Us…

A war of savage and cruel words
Begin to fly in this lovely place,
Too many left,
Vanishing without a trace,

Then he came,
Wielding his pen like a sword,
And wiped the smile,
From the evil doer’s face…

Stood before us brave and tall,
And many of us wondered,
Which would fall?
This man so brave and true -
Or the heartless fool,
Who tried to rule,
With a cold and evil heart…

I don’t know what to believe,
But I stood silently,
And watched too many leave-
Too many lovely friends left the den,
And I say now,
This has to end…

I can’t stand by,
And watch this beautiful place die,
Can’t turn away,
When too many friends cry…
It’s just not my way…

This knight stands before us all,
And guards his lady’s honor,
The beautiful heart of a wonderful soul,
Lies wounded on the floor,

I can’t walk on by-
Nor close my eyes any longer,
Together we are stronger,
And I feel one thing so true -
This glorious Knight,
Will soon put an end to you…

I don’t know who your name is,
Nor do I care,
But when you attacked the Lady,
The battle became unfair…

Never in my life,
Have I seen a more beautiful soul,
Nor have I ever known,
A knight so true ,
As you…

So fight on Brave Knight,
Win this battle for right-
I can no longer hide,
I am standing by your side…

Such beautiful sentiments and it's really sad that some people have to be hurtful, but such is life I guess. This is still a great family of poets who geniuinely support one another.

This is beautiful and from your
heart also took much courage
but that is what friends are for
and if not friends then what is life worth
living I know this one will touch the Knight and his Lady It is sad....
Take care

This is a wonderful write ... Bravo ... I'm proud of you dear. I loved this write a lot. Thanks for this wonderful write. I'm so happy you did it and i am so happy to tell you i am for you. Your words make it clear what you wish from AD and what you like AD to be like. I'm So proud of you. Thanks for this wonderful support to that knight who fight for the lady in his heart. I'm indeed proud of that man who strongly be with her. Bcoz i like that Lady somuch ...She is indeed a beautiful angel of romance and i like her bcoz she filling in romance in my heart for you. Her writes are really romantic refreshments. I like to stand with u ... and so with those lovely hearts. Wish this AD be safe from that rotten hands. But i want to tell u something : There are men and also women who support such people. Sometimes such supports are spoiling this DEN and not the man. Those who support the indecencies must understand by supporting a wrong person ..They are leting him do more wrong and finally they are responsible for the FALL of AD. Wish those who support the wrong stop supporting him and try to change him leting him understand what is good and what is bad. Hope he will do fine and help AD and the poets here to live a happy life. Spoiling one prestige is easy but to build it back is really tough and sometimes can't. Wish all in AD ... whoever he or she is ... Whoever he or she supporting the wrong ... First understand that they are wrong... Hope all be brave like you to come forwrad to support the good. Wish all do good ... Thanks for this wonderful write ...
Keep your tough for any response ... I stand for you ...

I wanted everyone to stay too, but if anyone wants to leave then it's their choice. They must think this is a bad place so they leave.

There is no such place as bad place, only people who's made it bad.

I'm staying, even if it is bad, I'm still staying.
