I'd been doing my coursework, then suddenly I was struck with the image of an immortal being in caves glittering like diamonds, singing a lament for his beloved, passed away fighting for her people... and then this monstrosity of a poem was spawned.

My first-ever time publishing anything not fanfiction, so I am very nervous... D:

But anyhow I am rambling. Please, enjoy! :)


Lament of Stone

a poem


I wrapped you up in glittering jewels

Gems forged of starlight; from the bowels

Of the earth

.

And I set you free

Whorls of smoke which, in glee

Escaped

Fluttering into the sky

Bluer than my

Tears...

.

History does not remember

For nothing lasts for-ever

But I

Am older than these mines

And you've my heart wrapped up in binds

Oh, my Love

You deserve so much more

Than the riches I lave you

With

.

For what have you died?

To me it seems as if you abide

Still in these

Still

Halls

Hewn of stone,

And of gems lit like starlight...

.

Those you have died for shall forget

And I am left

Wishing for some amnesia

And finding

That I-

Cannot

.

So I shall sing your lament

I'll set these caves ablaze

Until the Earth does shudder

And belch out umber flames

Oh, I shall remember

And I will sing your tale

.

So worry not, my love

Of renown found then lost;

Find your way across these

Cloud-stroked glossy shores

We shall never meet again

For I may never fade-

.

But in these halls of fallen stars

I'll ever sing your name

So go, now,

And rest, dear one

Eternal be your fame.
