A poem I just decided to write that goes along with my Misc. story, "Fate or Destiny". Any comments will be helpful, I haven't been writting poetry much, but I would love to know what I'm doing right and wrong. Thanks!


Bound by soul and weak by flesh

No more alive, I'm lifeless

My skin has rotten, I am undead

Green flames in my soul, my flesh I have shed.

A curse to my body, but this must be

I learned the grimoire and set the world free

I have paid a heavy price

Yet my soul burns with life

I am the color of green

It runs me like gasoline

I pray someday to be set free

From this hellish bind that enslaves me


Why did I do this?

To help mankind?

No, it was power

Unholy divine.


I was corrupted and consumed by the magic

But a light still shines in places ever so tragic

I had no hope of ever returning

Yet I found a way

A treacherous monster

That I must slay.

Learning to control this dark power

I sought out the Sword of a coward

He tried to defeat me in battle

I destroyed the grimoire

The Sword was shattered.

Still today I do not rest

I wait for my end

The final test.
