misconstrued [man]ifestations

    † †  
side [A] be a man † † † †  
† † † † †
stock standard virulent beefcake † † † †  
uncouth † † † †  
king pawn wired for violence † † † †  
through war he yields peace † † † †  
† † † † †
look back across the mountain pass † † † †  
a forged foreign landscape † † † †  
i barely recognise my [broken] self † † † †  
† † † † †
she thinks the mechanics are simple † † † †  
loving him can not simply be † † † †  
† † † † †
hearts are tempered and minds honed † † † †  
† † † † †
he is unearthed † † † †  
transformed † † † †  
unhinged and hung † † † †  
he is dead buried and reborn † † † †  
† † † † †
threefold repetition † † † † †
† † † † †
unearthed † † † †  
transformed † † † †  
adrift and anchored † † † † †
† † † † †
he is stagnant † † † †  
he is crucified † † † †  
he is dead † † † †  
† † † † †
† † † † †
side [B] man up † † † †  
† † † † †
this is not an apathetic command † † † †  
not a toxic war cry † † † †  
this is trajectory † † † †  
† † † † †
a red beacon ignites on lupiter † † † †  
shatters silence from space † † † †  
a call to arms † † † †  
wrapped tight around my man pup † † † †  
can feel everything raw and human † † † †  
† † † † †
tears bleed through my shirt to kiss skin † † † †  
my lips draw words against his cheek † † † †  
nods once † † † †  
he is worried about school † † † †  
nods twice † † † †  
feels a bit better when he gets there † † † †  
† † † † †
blood truths cut and his hero unravels † † † †  
† † † † †
i am worried about work † † † †  
rather keep safe with my wolf pack † † † † †
but i gotta rise every morning † † † †  
front whatever is coming my way † † † †  
† † † † †
the world sometimes blesses me with flowers † † † †  
and other days i get pelted with bricks † † † †  
† † † † †
taps temple tremors † † † †  
[trigger ancient murmurs from a soldier] † † † †  
thoughts of coming home transcend † † † †  
muscle threads and delicate bone † †
† † † † †
no man can survive this life alone
