once in armour

once
I was the man
inside

once
I wore defenses

still
my presence lingers
still
my shape
is in the place
I was

my mould
fills out the who

suggests
the what

I am free of that
free of him

I am done
with all
the trappings

worship
if you will
my suit
not me

I am gone
the green
left
behind me

once I wore
my armour
out

once
the knight
I
wore it
