Unleashed and anticipating an empty promise
I ignore the red flags and crossfire
stepping passed the barrier in order to delve in
You welcome me, which is a relief
to say the least
yet it is a false pretense
a surface embellishment and a creative façade
You endeavor to be my adversary
though I am in need of a companion
the truest ally, simply speaking
or so I try
You make it so damned complicated
to offer to buy you a drink
only a brave man marks his course
and this is what I prove myself to be
as you accept
