My Suit Of Armor (Sequel)

I built my suit of armor
Crafted very well
Hid myself from all to see
Inside my metal shell

But in your wishful searching
You found a simple flaw
A imperfection on my part
That no one else saw

My armor unpenetratable
Or so I once had thought
You began to work your way into
Even though I fought

You started with the faceshield
Took me by surprise
Loosed my tears, bared my face
To look into my eyes

Next my arms so tightly bound
You unwrapped and set them free
Teaching me to hold again
By holding on to me

The legs that I had shackled
So I could walk no more
You unbound and led the way
To new worlds that we'd explore

Last there came the breast plate
The strongest from the start
But you worked your way into its steel
And touched my very heart

Now I stand before you
My armor at my feet
Youíve won this battle Iíll admit
But I donít claim defeat

Yes, in a pile the armor lays
Reflected in your light
Its metal strong, now is dulled
But I am shining bright

To Tyson, always my inspiration Hugs

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

If you haven't yet read "My Suit Of Armour" that I just reposted, please do so, as this will make far more sense, although I think it can stand on its own
Thanks
Ruth

But dreams - of those who dream as I,
Aspiringly, are damned, and die:

Beautiful Ruth!
Sigh, another bite.
It appears that the bug spray needs to be sentback to the manufacturer. Apparently it is not working at all!

I'd ask for a refund...
but think that I should pay them instead!Well written Ruth! And quite touching!

Christopher...maybe instead we should ask for a few more bottles...it seems to be doing alright having people inspired
Thanks for your comments

Hi Ruth,
What do I say to this except thank you? To know I inspire you in this way does more than I can possibly say. You didn't skip a beat with these two poems...as if you wrote them in the same day. I'm glad your sequel was as good, or even better, certainly in mood, than the first. Talk to you soon, Ruth. Bye.

Excellent Sequel...
"Now I stand before you
My armor at my feet
Youíve won this battle Iíll admit
But I donít claim defeat

Yes, in a pile the armor lays
Reflected in your light
Its metal strong, now is dulled
But I am shining bright

"

What better end to the narrative? So glad you don't need the armor any longer! :-)

Have tried skeleton keys-no luck.Am considering some kind of explosive approach which would blow off all the doors but not damage the rooms themselves.Must find the proper mixture so as to minimize potential fire hazards and not hurt the cat.

P.S.-this is how I think when I've had too much coffee.

Yer buddy,

Paul

Hoot, this is beautiful! Set free from your bonds by the gift of love.
