PostSubject: Lying in the Hands of Time   Tue May 01, 2007 7:22 pm

Another poem I just made up on the spot; the rhythm is rather off at certain places. (I will be posting them separately from now on...) This is a bit about of my dragonkin life. It is not told completely right though.

When I gazed into that mirror, that dreaded mirror that told all,
The image, was exceedingly clear, and I was surprised at what I saw.

I did see myself, that is for true,
However, with my heart, I saw a figure anew.

Where I was he stood, on the other side of the mirror,
Could this be me? I thought, as I stared in fear.

He was more mangled, more twisted, and much greater in size,
And he wore a thick, blood-stained band over both his eyes.

I turned my head right, then left, with my mouth gaping wide,
He did the same, only breathing fire at each of his sides.

These surrounding creatures, I did not know what they were,
Burned by the flames, of my reflection-like blur.

I scanned the area, there was nothing around,
The creatures only lie on his side of the ground.

I stared at him, at the bandage, where his eyes should be,
As he did the same, I could tell, he was able to sense me.

We faced each other silently, for a very long time,
And as we finally did part, my heart was sublime.

I got older and wiser, as my future became,
Although when these creatures returned, I got badly maimed.

Though I was able to escape that terrible fight,
I hid, defeated and scarred with the loss of my sight.

I grew determined to find out who was responsable for this,
However, no matter how hard I tried, I ended up amiss.

I had to train hard, despite my disability,
Until on my torn feet, I had gained stability.

I practiced and fought hard, every day, and every night,
I knew I had to overcome this horrible blight.

I became used to using my ears, and other senses,
Having perfecting these quickly, I was ready for offenses.

I spent the lot of my life, fighting for what was right,
Ever since that attack, I had made that my plight.

Then one stormy night, as if it were planned,
I had been battling in a rather familliar land.

In the midst of the melee I could sense a mirror,
And finishing up, to it I drew nearer.

Blasting fire left and right, to finally end this fray,
I turned toward the mirror, with a long delay.

A little heart I could feel calling, came from the mirror's face,
And suddenly I remembered that long time ago, and through my mind, thoughts rushed apace.

I could sense my past watching my present, time seemed to go by slow,
As I had once saw my future, I now faced my past, and thought: He was me, a long time ago...

And we faced each other silently, for a very long time,
As we finally did part, our heart was once more sublime.
