Soldier of the Knight

I should’ve stopped it
before it began,
but you helped to soothe the darkness
eating away at this man.
So I showed you the ropes
and how to stand tall,
to always fight for justice
whenever it may call.
Then I stood by and watched
as each of you fell,
one after another,
into my personal hell.
So rest now, my soldier.
Give up the fight.
Remove the heavy mantle,
the curse of the night.

Prompt: Soldier
