Hollow Victory

You stand upon the mountain top.
Foes vanquished.
A bloody sword in your hand.
A trail of bodies behind you.
The destruction you have left behind is vast.
But you are a conqueror.

You won.
You made it.
But the angels do not sing your praises.
The devils around your feet do not cheer.
The bells of victory ring hollow.
No better than sad silence.

The mountaintop is lonely.
This sadness you cannot conquer.
In this way you have lost.
And you can never win again.
