I was supposed to be stronger
To be able to protect her
And to keep the peace
In this modern world.
I no longer wanted to be used
For whatever needs my master could plead
I wanted to be me
While feeling the love of her human being
She’s beautiful, and she doesn’t know it
Dangerous, yes but in a peculiar way
She’s stronger than she could ever imagine
I know not only because the gem says it
But because I felt it
But it pains me seeing her in such distress
Being tested in the cruelest way
I almost could see her breaking down
But she grew stronger and let it all come out
At some point we were losing, the end was near
We didn’t traded lives and defended our will
There was no choice, she had to do it
Even though it was painful, there’s no other way
She complained in denial, that life wasn’t fair
I agreed to her statement, life is never fair
My love was so wide that I urged her to unleash it
And once she did, it pained me the way we finished.
I never wanted to hurt her
And she never did.
At least we fulfilled our destiny here.
I could feel how everything vanishes into nothing
There is silence, not even a voice hearing
This must be the true meaning of being alone
But at least she’s safe along with the entire world.
Wait, what is it?
Why am I being restored without hearing a word?
Then I see her, fear screaming in her eyes.
He threw her away as he held me up high
I struggle to break free, but he’s too strong
And I feel the gem responding to his imminent call
“Wanda” is all I think
As he pull out my source of energy to his will.
And there I fell on the ground, lifeless
Regretting the fact that I couldn’t protect her.
