The dark knight


Cities have born, cities have died and
everybody stares up to the savior, whose
eyes flat in unknown dimensions and
body without fear, the knight evolved
to save our nights.

“How are saviors born?”,the child gapes.
They are the men who walk upon fears,
they shout in the storm with their heads up
they are men of justice and fine judgement
We are those men when we know it.

He sacrificed his blood when the sands needed
to be settled and when the felony
demanded his love, he rose above his heart.
The man above ordinary, yet so ordinarily
blending in every of the city’s hallmark and
every of the man’s soul.
Risen the dark knight!

i LOVE this!!!!

They are the men who walk upon fears,
they shout in the storm with their heads up

We are those men when we know it....
and then...
The man above ordinary, yet so ordinarily...

gave me shivers while reading because it's just so good and because of the "we are them if we know it..." superheroes in many different ways... in the ordinary, everyday struggle...you painted my day magical with this one..
