The Duel

by Odie

You broke my heart 
Yet I hope
Tossed me aside
And still I dream

My mind knows the truth
Sees the boy in a man's clothes
Sees your faults
Knows your lies

My heart sees your soul
The sadness behind those eyes
The quieter, gentler side
Boiling with potential 

Scrutiny has found you wanting
Unsuitable as the rest
For a test that can not be taken
Yet failed none the less

Yet I yearn to know you
In ways no other ever did
To tame the rage inside
And silence the beast within

But I never got the chance
So heart and mind 
Duel on into the night
And the body grows weary with wait
