A Deadly Combination

What a deadly combination
A smile and a pretty face
How quickly a warrior
Will abandon his place

Standing firmly at guard
Protecting the castle entry
An enemy lurks in shadow
Threat real or imaginary

He yearns to follow
Something he knows
As his heart does tell him
There is something more pure

Yet all to many times
He reaches to touch it
An like the clouds
It vanishes
