sing for me a song my love

Poetry By: solafidas

I thought i was done writing for a little while, but i guess thats when you finds thoughts that still need words. i'll keep the heart of this one to myself, though it is perhaps quite plain. something about love and love lost, getting it back to find you never had it. let me know your thoughts:) thank you.

I taste the blood in my mouth

My body lies amongst the rest



Proud we stood against the flood

A wall against the stars

Tall we looked against the night

Held in each others arms


Smoke was rolling in the hills

Fires brightly blazed through the wood

A war was on the way

Like a torrent moves on whispered feet

They poured from out the flame

Shadows scuttled far below

Cries of help, cries of hate

Tried to break our bond in two


Sighing, diving, I threw my weight

And launched into the fray

The whispers in the waves

That swam so close around our feet

Brought questions born on lies

Doubts on wings of truth


I fought that day against the world

To save my lovers heart

But each whisper that I slew

Left behind some piece of sense

A puzzle built of broken truth

A riddle of my soul


My guard had dropped unknown to me

As I gathered what had fallen

My mind had wandered dumbly

As I questioned what was done

And as I went to stand

My hands brimming with these thoughts

I felt the steel slide in my heart

The death flow through my veins


with my final breath I turned to see

To gaze my reapers face


Two tear stained eyes looked back at me

A face of stricken pain

Shaking hands gripped a bleeding knife

And my lover watched me fall


Questions tumbled at my feet That day

The answers buried with the bodies

I fell amongst them heavily

The sadness weighing in my soul


I taste the blood in my mouth

My body lies amongst the rest
