I Had Slain the Innocent of All Celodia
I HAD SLAIN THE INNOCENT OF ALL CELODIA
I stand upon the Athsumek
remembering a time
when I destroyed Celodia
and saw the people die.
This is the last remaining church
that I had left to stand.
For by YahlĂ*rinâs will, it lives,
embedded in the sand.
So strong it is and had been then
against my possessed self,
withstood the storms of raging earth
that turned all into malth.
The land, it was stained red with blood
as far as eye could see:
upon the broken rubble vast
and all throughout the streets.
I fell upon this very sand;
my body lay broken.
I peered about over the wreck,
amazed by DĂ¨thshaiken.
There was nothing on which could I hold fast
and I was much afraid.
The people scattered all about
was all too much to take.
The dĂŠmon left me all alone,
it left me there in shock
to gaze upon the shattered stone,
the of rock.
âTwas then I saw DĂŠnahi there,
still as a calm, blue sea.
Alive, he spoke to ease my pain
âYasha, you can be free.â
âThe church on which you fell,â said he,
âso just happens to be
YahlĂ*rinâs house upon the earth.â
So I glanced up to see.
Then Kinsei looked and smiled at me,
he beckoned me to come.
âJoin us,â he said, âas family
and we will give you love.â
Alas, I went along with them
not knowing what came next.
As long as DĂ¨thshaiken had left,
could I write my own text.
So many times have I returned
to think of what occurred:
the time when I became possessed
and everyone slaughtered..
I rest here be this very church
to awaken memories.
To think that it had lasted here,
sacred and heavenly.
YahlĂ*rin saved this thing of old,
of some forgotten care
It is a beacon of freedom
as peaceful as the air.
I am a breath of candlelight,
a soul in solitude,
ever watching desert winds
graze the sandy dunes.
So quiet is the fresh, warm breeze,
so gentle is its song,
Like a feather I float by
across the desert long.
I find myself strengthened by love,
well-spoken and thought of,
though I had slain the innocent
of all Celodia.
Re: I Had Slain the Innocent of All Celodia
I just love this poem alot. The format is classic and the feeling is raw. The imagry is top of the line but use alittle more. But over all Great work! btw I've noticed but your one one of the few writers that even use metphors in thier writing. And like i know that you cant just come up with a good peom out of thin air. It seems that you revise it before posting it. I applaud you. ^^
