optimusprimus001: To be honest, I got bored, read about six or seven Rurouni Kenshin mangas, and got inspired to write this short Kenshin/Battosai poem. Let me know what you think, k? n-n Just to note, salvatrix means 'savior' in latin.

Disclaimer: (to be honest, do we even need one? This is a fanfiction site, doesn't that mean that we already have disclaimed all lisenced characters that we're writing stories about to begin with? I mean, come on! (coughs) Anyway, now done with my side rant...) I do not own Rurouni Kenshin in any way, shape, or form.

Where my blade goes,

Nothing is safe.

When my feet walk,

Ground becomes bone.

My very presence

Signifies death.

As the blood and rain mix,

It's clear I'm no salvatrix.

With war now gone,

What do I become?

Many look to me

As the best of them all;

So my sword I still wield,

To protect them from the fall.
