Silent But Deadly

One eye meets one eye unblinking:
Our silence cuts both ways.
You shield your face like I do
Slay sorrow with battle-rage.
I know how few words carry
More weight for the things not said.

And I know your secret, swordsman:

One of us is dead.

...or is it two?

They look to me for counsel
They look to you for a plan
Not knowing what's buried inside us
Can shatter any dream.
We can't avenge the dead
But no regrets can stop us.

We'll make the dying end--

Theirs, at least.

I am like you.
