Who Knew

Who knew the changes would be so profound
That flying so high meant falling harder to the ground
What once brought pure bliss to flesh
Could make a being hiss with distress
Who knew the deception of young love
Sought to destroy the best of us
A lifetime of fighting for more
Would make one realize they're in the wrong war
Who knew the person that gazes back in the mirror
Could ever be a knight in tattered armor
That suddenly without warning love became lost
Damned to boil away and evaporate
With knowledge of what was truly great
Who knew that struggle was not a curse from god
But a blessing brought by the devil himself
A chance to prove you're not just a shell
But a fire fly dimmed by pollution of light
To fight to be seen and heard by grace
Who knew that falling was just another step in the race
One to concur with blood smeared on your face
That the taste of it would be so bitter at first
But as life pressed forward it mixed with sugar
Forcing a tongue to sting lips with fire
Caramelizing the bitter flavor into sweet desire
Who knew Once I was done with you
I would see what could be the best of me
