Desert

Lonely soldiers standing in a ready position;
Untouchable and indestructible.
A beauty floats in the wind,
Cowering at the burning of a monster's gaze.
Only she can puncture a soldier's tough skin...
Within lies a soul, waiting to be discovered;
Emotion waiting for a chance to bleed.
His beauty is so sweet,
So charismatic that it mends her wounds...
Those made by creatures of the night,
whom have souls of stone;
Those who are truly cold.
Save them... save the soldier and the beauty and the monster;
Save of from that grasp we fear so greatly.

Made a typo: I truly appreciate this comment! I really write for myself and to express my feeling about my environment and to see that others cherish and like my compositions really means a lot. You've made my day! Thank you! :)

Not a problem!  I surprised that more people haven't commented on it!  Maybe it's just that it's too deeply inset for words to appreciate.  I know my words were shallow in my feeling, after reading this, but I think it's still worth it.  Because, and I know this from experience, it's nice to know that your work is appreciated.  Keep on writing!
