7 lights, 13 darknesses. One will know defeat.

Dawn approaches

Dusk will not retreat

7 lights

13 darknesses

One will know defeat


Scattered fragments

Sought after remnants

The ultimate weapon

The Final Keyhole

In the hearts of Maidens


Fall into an ocean

Dive to the Heart

A world within a dream

Stations of light

Swallowed in the dark


A key turns

Will the door open

A pure Wielder

A tainted Seeker

The Guardians bear coveted tokens


7 lights

13 darknesses

Worlds yet unlocked

Shadows without hearts

A Kingdom guarding precious fortresses


Dawn recedes

Dusk grows deep

7 lights

13 darknesses

The Wielder turns the Key






“The raging of the enemy doesn’t frighten us.”

7 lights, 13 darknesses -- that is some thought to play with. An enjoyable read, Jeff.

It's what sparked the idea for the piece. :) I've been a fan of the game series for fifteen years now, but it wasn't until I read that that the notion to write something finally came. There's just something about it that creates intrigue.
Thank you for reading, Hully! I'm glad you found something worthwhile in this piece. :D

Thank you, JMM! It's one of my favourite franchises. I have a tendency to write a lot about light and darkness in my poems and stories; I'm not sure if it's rooted in my love for KH or not. haha!
Thank you for reading! :)

Thank you, Sharief!
Yes, I tend to write about light and dark. It's a theme I cannot get away from, though it's a popular theme in all art forms, anyway: light and dark, good and evil, moral and corrupt - they're all the same.
Thank you for reading, Sir!
