The Codex in my hand
Opened yet untouched
What a Knight I am
But Sister knows better-
“A-ya why don’t you call it a day?”
Sat down at the tavern,
Waiting for the usual,
“Boss, one fine Dandelion wine!”
Ignoring me as usual…
“Do Knights have time to come and idle here?”
Oh Brother, cold as ever,
Does this agonising heart not deserve a little flatter?
Thousand words uttered for the worst or the better,
But two kept hidden inside this empty vessel.
Alas! the fiery rage has blinded you forever.
Don’t you see that,
I’m a man,
But a boy with a stutter.
– Rtr. Chamodi Peduruarachchi
