Romance / Historical

We call them "knights in shining armour" perhaps because in the night we need "amour" or "love" to shine for us. Or perhaps it is that only love can find its way through the armour we all wear and polish, hiding the self that is so vulnerable and soft. Either way, when the joust began there was only ever going to be one winner for me, they could polish the metal and strut all they wanted, my heart had been taken, or perhaps I gave it away one starlit eve.

The armour was shiny, but in some places rusted. There were still cuts, scrapes and dents from when it was used. It was never polished, but kept in a glass cage, so it wouldn't rust anymore.

He felt like some kind of modern day knight, dressed head to toe in kevlar. He was better dressed than batman. All the protection and none of the silly pointed ears or cloak.

"The metal armor could protect him from the world, but it couldn't protect him from himself."
