The NoldorMighty are the Second Kindred,The Noldor8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Strong and brave and fair;
Fierce they are and proud,
Tall and dark of hair;
Filled with passion and iron of will,
A two edged sword this can be.
Never do they turn aside from their propose,
From no enemy do they flee.
Ache their hands do to craft and create,
Beloved of the Smith are they.
Burn their minds do for knowledge,
But into folly they sometimes stray.
Lovers of hills and open lands,
The Watchtower their first home.
Many other glorious kingdoms did they build,
Seven High Kings they have known.

For there is no love in them. We're not good enough for them.
It is gold and jewels they care for, It is purity and beauty they care for,
While we are the ones they condemn. Whereas we are the ones they condemn.
Dwarves only dig and seek riches, Elves only sing and do nothing,
They care not for the troubles we face. They care not for the troubles we face.
Only feasting and fighting amuse them, Only forests and starlight amuse them,
And they're lacking in wis

Yet such was the cunning of Sauron, and the strength of his hidden will, that ere three years had passed, he bacame close to the councils of the king...And Sauron spoke to the king, saying that his strength was so great, he need not be subject to the ban of the Valar. Then the king harkened to Sauron...and in those days the fleets of the Numenoreans blackened the waters west of the land...and Sauron withdrew to the inmost circles of his dark temple. (Akallabêth, The Silmarillion)
Once he laughed,
In his dark hall-
The lord of all.
Twice he laughed,
For weak-willed men
Who fell, became
His servants then.
Thrice he laughed,
The shadows rang-
Though Doom upon
a thread should hang.
A final time
Would he have laughed?
But then Doom fell-
An iron shaft.
Seemed to frown
On Sauron Gorthaur,
He guessed not
The Valar's wrath,
Though long we walked
His Master's path...
Until the Void
Of Morgoth's crown

Travel through the lands,

Please watch over him
And bring him safe to me
Oh, beloved lights
Which shine in the dark night
Please warm his heart
So he can smile
Among you he shines
And with him
He takes my heart
Every time he leaves.
I wait on the cold shore
Every single morning
For him to come back
And only an embrace I wish
To keep me warm
Until his return.
Loved, yet lonely
I am, but who can tell
My bitter pain
Of knowing him so away
In the nights
And darkness so cold,
In a dreamless world?
The Breathing StoneYour eyes wander the forest,The Breathing Stone5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Brushing the murky green floor.
You see a stone beneath you.
A stone? Or something more?
A cry of shock bursts from your lips
As the stone takes a flying leap.
This stone is not a stone at all
But a toad alarmed from sleep!
How strange a creature, motivated
Into action all at once!
With pounding heart, he tenses up
And springs forth in a jump!
Your naked eye squints shrewdly down
At the heart that beats within.
Each pound thrums through his body;
Shakes the warts upon his skin.
Repulsed by him, you move on,
But the toad does not.
He's left alone in winter's grip,
Nestled deep within the rot.
Winter passes, then comes Spring,
A time for life's renewal.
Out comes the toad, warts unchanged.
Nature, too, can be quite cruel.
Resigned to be alone, the toad,
Still caked with dried up earth,
Waits for the skies to open up,
And rain down his rebirth.
The skies do grace him one fine day,
And he flies up in a leap.
So sweet is the toad's victory,
In the face of stark

Yes, I am a Christian,
But I do not believe that God will suddenly make things better, stop hunger, and end world suffering. I don't even count on Him to end mine.
Yes, I am A Christian,

Yes, I am A Christian,

I pray for peace, for love and hope,
that one day, violence and agony will refuse to show.

Carpathian LoveI have fallen,Carpathian Love7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I fell in love with you.
Nothing will stop me,
From winning your heart.
You will see me,
You will love me,
You will know me,
As I know wish you.
Nothing hurts me more,
Than seeing you in pain.
Crying over fear of life,
For threats have been sent your way.
I'll find them and kill them,
And the threats will go away.
I'll take my life before I lose you,
I'll end the pain of your loss.
For the many years I lived,
Have I once felt this strong.
I want to hold you,
Make you feel safe.
You gave me emotion,
And restored my coloured sight,
You have kept the demon at bay,
I've been alone for many years,
No emotion and no fears.
Then I met you,
And things have all changed.
I gave you blood,
You gave me yours,
And with this exchange,
Your life will change,
I will know what you think,
And the same will go for you.
Nothing secret will tear us apart,
I will be by your side,
I don't care what's in the past,
I only care if you are alright.

he's so twisted up in knots
tangled in ways you can't see
he comes to me this way
it's in me that he finds peace
he's never told me this
he's never said a word
but his eyes will always tell me

That BloodThat Blood4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Torn in two,
The state of which,
We all seem into.
For our souls...
Why treat this Son like He hasn't a use?
As the blood drips down,
Pours from His veins,
With crying and screaming,
He endures the pain,
Walk from the dark,
Into the light,
Open your eyes,
Look at the beautiful sight,
Fall on your knees,
Inhale the love He's given you,
For over and over again,
Mistreat, and hurt this God...
Watch as the fire around,
Dies, and fades away,
Watch as your life,
Just know that He loves you,
Won't ever forsake us,
Even when we live in lies,
Malice, and lust.
Fall in love,
One love that won't end,
Take your torn,
Broken, beaten self,
Kill yourself to God, this flesh is spent...

You know Merry, and Pippin, and Frodo, and Samwise,
Bilbo, and Fatty, and old Gaffer Hamfast.
But do you recall
The most creepy (ex) Hobbit of all?
Gollum, the former Hobbit,
Has some very grey-green skin.
And if you ever saw him,
You might think he was too thin.
All of the other Hobbits,
Used to point and run away.
They sent away poor Smeagol
To never see the light of day.
Then one dark and creepy time,
Bilbo came to say:
Gollum, with your eyes so bright,
Im gonna steal your ring tonight!
Then how the dwarves loved him,
But Gollum was furious.
Bilbo, you stupid fat Hobbit!
You have stole our precious!

Ingrained in him,
"Thy wisdom come
of fiction, truth."
Before her stretch the ponds
that lesser men call oceans.
There is no understanding
across the rift of thought.
I am a tetrahedron, ribs
of mercy spawned uphold the laws
and house the frailty of a promise,
lucid like a glowing eye.
Severity then strips my hull of bone
and drops her froth into my open skull
until I'm not transparent anymore,
put through this make-opaque-experiment.

As you drove towards the bazaar,
Old-new music turning the air sharp and crisp
As the fiery trees that flew by.
Then we walked a little later
Through still-green fields and tire hills,
Speaking of springtime blossoms
As a wintery wind nipped at our hands.
Sitting on what felt like a grassy observation platform,
We ignored the phantom stares of others
And found ourselves in each other
As a summertime sun beat against us.
This new world of ours
Can and will survive the seasons,
For now we two cannot be separated,
Filled to bursting with love and hope.

Miss, say a prayer for me,
For only God doth know mine fate,
And he shall not decree.
I am a ghost upon this earth,
And trapped upon it yet,
Until a kiss from one so fine
My freedom true and set.
Then even God shall have to sway
And let me pass from here,
To roam with others dead as me
With merriment and cheer.
And while I be a phantom lass,
Please do not cry those tears.
For death is not so cruel and harsh,
So put away those fears....
Now off I sail to heaven, love,
Until we meet again.
I'll wait for you as always, girl,
Just yonder, past the plain.
And when your bones are weak and old,
And mortal soul set free,
Go roam and search awhile, love
And you shall be with me.

Heart pounds... fleeting,
when yours is not in sync.
Flesh seems, useless.
When close you're not to touch.
Breaths are, fleeting.
breast cannot contain the air.
When comparing my love for you,
to a once empty lung.
In no confinement will it bear.
Always drawn in your vicinity,
as the compass points true north.
Every notion of my being,
toward your visage journeys forth.
As a constant flowers growth,
in the spring through to fall.
Thus you're majesty tenfold blooms,
piercing light to knees I'd crawl.
On all fours I bear any burden,
for a moment basking in your splendor.
A moment will that last eternal,
worth every trial of my endeavor.

So all you'll find

Stand and stare.
Take a breath.
A hint I'll drop.
It's me you'll spot.

And see what's there
And just beyond

Look very closely,
