Empty Suit


Cracks in the armor

reveal the void inside.

Turns out you are

a “Never Were”.

Sunlight warrior.

Moonlight child.


you have always been able to

keep that breastplate shining.

Tough love.

Tough luck.

This one rough road

tumbles any soul.

The day breaks,

just like the pike lines

before the cavalry charge.

That’s where you took your wound.

That is where we found you.

A boy,

in the suit of a man

who never was.
