POEM FOUND ON THE BODY OF VICTOR HARTMAN

As we waited in the wolf hour
For the men we were to kill,
You whispered, like a lover's confession,
Of your dream.
How with gentle hands an angel
Freed you from your pain-wracked body
Sheathed your soul in shining mail
And gave you the weapons
With which to slay such evil.
Of your heart - the only organ salvaged
From that frail and wretched frame -
You cut in two, and offered me the greatest part
So I could taste its' sweetness.

I said nothing of my lonely vigil
Outside the operating theater
Not trusting the bastards
Since their first deadly betrayal.
How once in the night
Wrenched from the drug's subtle grasp
You cried for your mother to save you
From the bloody hands of the Hacksaw Men.
We stole your youth, your innocence,
Your past, your future,
Your body; now even your dreams
Are as artificial as your love.
For how can you truly love the man
Whose arrogance killed your angel?

I've decided to change the name of this one to "Clockwork Dreams of the Warrior Princess" before posting it to FF.net. Wasn't quite happy with the previous name (a good title - just not appropriate for this poem).

'' We stole your youth, your innocence,
