Default An interesting discovery...

I was browsing through my files trying to find a story, and I stumbled upon this bit of prose that I had forgotten I wrote. The reason I'm posting it here and not fluff/stories is to give it some exposure...

Enjoy?

[hr]


Yellow desert flowers,
I walked the path of Death.
In the sun, I found her there,
Naked and alone.

I took her home, tended her wounds.
And that night she came to me.

We danced in the summer moonlight,
danced on the lifeless ground.
Pounded the dirt into nothing,
And into the Underworld we fell.

We danced, and danced,
Whilst the fires of Hell
Raged all around us.

Oblivious to the flames
We danced the dance of Eternity.
Until the fires were no more.

She laughed, then.
A hearty laugh, that it seemed
Came from everywhere,
And nowhere at once.

Then she spoke to me,
She said: "Everything is eternal,
Until it ends."

She left me then, alone
In the Summer Moonlight.
Just a vision, a dream perhaps,

But I still wait, here among
The Yellow Desert flowers.
Waiting for my Goddess to return,
To take me dancing once more,
Through Eternity.

*applause*

Very good poem, with a sort of Warcraft/Fantasy Elf feel to it IMO. :rockon:

Nice indeed, have a sort of epic feel about it. I wonder how wil this poem sounds like if it was some sort of power rock song?

I agree.

That was a fantastic poem.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.
