Despite wearing armor

They were beautiful
Seeming to him
To offer
Hours unending in pleasure
Broken by their desire
Made to break
By upholding vows
And codes of honor
They enter damnation
Although covered in armor
Armed with weapons
Of the finest construct
Deeply wounded
Fighting battles
Of will and
Grotesque temptation
More is to be lost by a knight
For a soul in the combat
Of will and the lust of a man
One cannot dare lose
For he will be stained
Never able thereafter
To ascend and become
A king's arm
Or his shield
For he will be stolen
From his path
And never return
For the sins in him burn
