Wine until bottom
And pain of fame
He was my father
His anger like flood
We sealed our Oath
In fire and blood
The flame extinguished
By Oath we're still bound
Through tears and pain
No rest to be found
The blood on my hands
And my hand in chains
What was it for
When nothing remains?
The Light we sought, burns
So close, yet so far
We are not worthy
To touch a star
Burning flame, take me
And clean the stain
Take the cursed Jewel
And end my pain!
In fire it started
In fire it ends
Just like my father
The fire in my veins
The First SnowThe First Snow10 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
He climbed onto the tower top. Brisk, frosty air surrounded him. The landscape down the hill was covered with mist.
Winter morning in Himring.
And the first snow.
The floor was already well sprinkled with delicate snowflakes.
He wrapped his thick long shawl tighter around his shoulders and slowly put a bare foot on the snow. At first he felt nothing, his skin was still warmed with the bath. He followed with his other foot, nothing. A step forward. Still nothing. Silence. Calm.
Slowly he walked to the middle of the turret. Now he was starting to feel the chill and dampness under his feet but still it was not unpleasant.
Snowflakes were lazily drifting before his eyes. He wanted to reach out, to catch them, to hold them in his hand, but... He had only one hand. The attempts to hold his shawl with the stump nearly ended with the garment falling. All he could do was to reach out with the stump or...
Put his face towards it, as towards the Sun.
He closed his eyes. The first snowflakes gentl
The Song of Aragorn and ArwenHe:The Song of Aragorn and Arwen6 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Among the songs of waterfalls
in a valley green and fair
I sang the song of Lúthien
and spring was in the air.
Among the birches' silver trunks
I heard your silent song.
And I saw youth and innocence -
- and I felt something strong.
In that moment I lost my heart:
forever will it dwell
enchanted in your tender palm
in spring in Rivendell.
The wind sang in the mallorn leaves:
each leaf a small green gem.
I found no peace with summer breeze
in dreamy Lórien.
From distant lands under strange stars
I came weary, my feet sore.
I sought only rest from the war -
- and I found so much more...
You came to me like a king of old,
a white gem upon your brow.
And what I saw was a noble man.
And what I felt... was love.
Autumn has come to Rivendell,
the leaves wither and fall.
And I must go: to victory,
or to the end of all.
I watch you leave: as strong and wise
as a mighty king of Men.
And behind darkness, winter's chill
I hope we meet again.
The Sea LongingThe Sea Longing4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The smoke of Pelargir rose up around our company as the Corsairs of Umbar fled from the fallen men of Dunharrow. We stood silent, staring out at the scene before us.
Suddenly a memory came to me in the form of Galadriel's voice
"...If thou hearest the cry of the gull on the shore,
Thy heart shall rest in the forest no more."
My brow furrowed in confusion; why would such a thought come to me at this time? Moments later I heard a sound unlike any other I had ever even imagined. I froze, even forgetting to breathe for a moment, before turning slowly towards it.
There, on one of the remaining pillars of a past noble's home, sat a bird.
With the sound it had made, my ears were shown an entire new song, one of the sea. I now heard the tides more clearly than before and they pulled me gently closer with each new wave.
I could still taste the same salt in the air, but it now meant something completely new.
I now knew that with the sea I was free.
I was free

It was cold here, upon Taniquetil. The air was thin, and the snow on the peak never melted. The wind didn't blow. It was peaceful, serene a white silence stretching through the halls of Ilmarin. There, high above all, Manwë sat on his throne, and his sight was directed to the east. The threat to Middle-earth has been destroyed. The One Ring has been melted in the fires of Orodruin, and a new age began. Change could be felt all over the world. And yet the expression of the Elder King was not one of joy. His all-seeing eyes were half-closed, focused not on the happening in the world, but something else. A memory, maybe. Then h

All of a sudden he heard a scream of a dozen voices:
"Ah, look! It's HIM!!! Get him!" and the tramp of many feet...
Helnor looked back - from behind the corner appeared a man, running probably for his life - so desperate was his face. As he ran closer to Helnor, the latter recognized him as... Aragorn, the king of Gondor... But what could make the fearless and proud man retreat in such a way?
The answer came soon, as Aragorn's chasers appeared in sight too. These were several maidens, both elven and human, and one even a hobbit. Some of them were dressed normally, some - in strange garments, bearing the king's portrait on them and a caption below that could mean nothing else but "I love Aragorn!"
"Kind sir, please, help me!" Aragorn panted having reac
Love Immortal 3I rode for a fortnight, keeping north as oft as possible. Three days before I was to reach Rivendell, I rode upon Hollin which, before I was born, had been inhabited with the Silvan Elves before they had departed to the Havens. I decided to stop and rest before I went further. I dismounted my horse and lay in the soft grass, staring into the night sky, and soon I fell asleep.Love Immortal 36 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
I was sitting in my chambers in Minas Tirith, writing a letter to Elessar, my stomach swollen to the size of a melon.
I am writing to tell you I am with child. Some of the Healers say it will be only four months before the child comes. I feel that this is our long awaited son, and I wanted to send news as soon as I knew. I am overjoyed at this, and I hope my letter reaches you in time for you to share this blessing of ours. I love you Elessar, with every fiber of my being. I end this letter in hope, that I will see you soon.

From the leafy canopy
A thousand shades of green
As water glittered along its course
And fell shimmering into its crystal basin
A soft breeze whispered
Through the boughs of ancient oaks
And beneath these trees
Two lovers walked
And sang in clear elven voices
And vows they made:
Never to part

Though there seems no end to night,
Every day which falls in shadow
In its time will dawn in light.
See the Moon dressed all in silver,
Chasing stars across the sky.
He will keep your fears away
And leave sweet dreams for you and I.
Now the stars above are shining,
Calling you to peaceful rest.
By the shores the sea is singing,
Telling stories of the West.
When the chains of Night are broken
And the Light at last is free,
Then the world shall know the blessings
Waiting far beyond the sea.
Dream of hope, my stars, my darlings,
'Till the morning comes anew.
I will stay beside your beds
And keep a vigil over you.

Boromir, the mighty heir, of Gondor's Steward Line
Amidst the flow of Anduin, his brother standing near
Osgiliath - they broke the bridge and faced the nameless fear
The Pride of those who now remain so few
Which Morgul hordes so long pursued
Then there came repeated dreams, to trouble minds of men
As eastern skies grew ever dark, a western light drew them
Imladris seek, and there you'll find, a bane and broken sword
Doom has beckoned wisdom there, to draw the Halfling forward
These tidings brought to Denethor, nothing dared they hide
Against all hope, through countless leagues, he bade his son to ride
Though in the battles with their foe, his mighty arm they'd miss
Fate had drawn him from his liege, to span dark wilderness
The council formed - each heart then weighed
Before them all, the Ring was laid
They knew in time, all hope would fa

He feels he cannot walk another step, until he does. The next step is the same, and the next, and he has stopped counting the sunsets and sunrises because measuring eternity has no purpose. He has wandered an eternity already, carrying his small harp for some indeterminable, compulsive reason, because it will be years before he can play again, if ever, and the sand blows into his eyes and into his throat as he sings. His hands are burnt and scarred and his voice is hoarse, and he wants to rip the strings from the taunting harp and scream, but he is unable to do either because it hurts too much.
Every muscle that has been on fire begins to numb from sheer fatigue, and he feels that he will die without food but is too weak from walking to fish or hunt- but then, Maitimo survived thirty-some years without food, didn't he- and now he is thinking of Maitimo again and he swore to himself that he would not think of them right now.&

The glittering halls of Asgard did nothing for Thor's temper as he, for the hundredth time, flipped a table on it's face, scattering food everywhere. This time, the topic of his anger was his brother, Loki. The fool had to go and be reincarnated as a mere Midgardian...all to escape his punishment from Odin. Those would be years YEARS he would not be able to see his brother to touch him to he had to purge such thoughts from his head. He suddenly stood and calmly walked all the way to Loki's bedroom. He lay in his brother's bed, taking in his scent for what would be the last time for a while. He closed his eyes as began to disintegrate into small molecules in the air. No. He would be the one to teach his brother a lesson this time, Odin and Frigga be damned. He would not let them kill his beloved brother.

They were standing in a hidden spot between the many trees that surrounded 'their secret garden', as they came to view it. It seemed every child found this spot and claimed it to be his or her own, and currently their son, Findekano, was playing there with his cousin and friend, Nelyafinwe son of Feanaro.

The night is a river
carrying you there
where silver stars shiver
On streams of dreams
to a land without sorrow
where boys have fathers
and the mounds are hollow
Sleep, my child
the sun hides till morrow
Her last rays a way
that elven ships follow
There, names are not secret
that can bring a danger
And father to child
doesn't have to be stranger
Sleep, my Hope
and hope of your people
Than mighty oak
your roots are deeper
Once you will know
the pride of the humbled,
the value of honour
and hopes of your kindred,
Sleep, my son
while darkness is soothing,
while you can rest
from the call of duty...
Once you will ride
to hardship and danger
and like your father
you will be a ranger
Sleep, my child
like in a nest eagle
when the stars shine,
distant and regal
Sleep, gain more strength,
and courage and strong will
that you will need
to grow and fulfil

Can we sit here and grow into trees
And grow into trees...

The wind will bring the rain
And the flame will flicker
Into the night
Of blackbirds at night
And think of of the right
Things to say
When you can't say anything
Like this is all a dream
Or anything you need
It's here because it's here because it's here because it's here
And strum out
On a drunk guitar
You'll never fall so hard
As you did for that girl who gave you the world
There will be an end
To this disenchantment
But who wants an end to their own movie
Watch the water fall
Breathe a breath of winter
Feel the summer light
And spring... up.
