Weakness

You say I am your shining beauty, the sparkle in the rust.
But when you love me, darling, your diamond turns to dust.

You say I am your sunshine, the light which blinds your sorrow.
But remember, love, the sun sets today, yesterday, and tomorrow.

You say that I’m your hero, but my strength is unreliable.
I’ll always fight to save you, though my powers are not undeniable.

You say I have honorable strength, but your theory is very untrue.
Because I fall apart when it is beyond my will, but my only weakness is you.
