The NoldorMighty are the Second Kindred,The Noldor6 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.

Not saying one word,
Sitting as quietly there as I could,
I cannot pretend,
It felt as if only you and I were there,
The awkwardness hung in the air,
Trying our best to breathe different light,
We have no longer been tight,
No communication any longer,
Not my choice,
But I'll take it even stronger.

Notte, amica mia oscura,
sovente mi perdo in te senza paura
dentro un tuo tempo
o attraverso un tuo spazio
istante di oblio e non di strazio
mentre cammino in ciò che in me sento
sospeso in un momento di silenzio arcano
in cui nessuno mi tiene per mano
e mentre il tuo buio m'inonda
la mia anima lo respira e vi affonda.
Chi sono, io che ora scrivo?
Posso dire con certezza "io vivo"?
Non lo so e mi soffermo, dimenticato,
in questo buio universo sognato.

And forever lost, you
To a suffocating oblivion.
I seek reminiscence not, yet here phantoms of "used-to-be"s lurk about and haunt even pebbles.
What am I but a forgotten, meaningless pebble? For on these streets lie a thousand broken bonds,
And I can't find ours.
Carves a shadow, your
Far-away soul -
no face lingers.
Winds, the echo of yesterday they are; but the buildings still, today, shiver and rattle.
Am I, now, to shake and hear only echoes? A lifetime of memories ago, you kept me steady.
But empty buildings, as me, grow old and forgotten too fast and too soon.
Always one day ahead,
Feet leading to roads

Fighting not so seldom
Peace used to come as easy
Weapons in hand,
But yours today holds a gift
Or treasure hunters
"Stealing for the poor",
And the dew on my brow-
What a most unusual treasure
Challenging and tempting;
Their branches our stronghold,
Do you remember?
Hay and grass,
Drums of adventure;
Our favourite scents,
Do you remember?
Survivors of a seabattle
Drying in the sunlight,
Do you remember?
Of silly, childish pleasures
I sing of summers spent to gather
And cherish all of them
Do you remember?

When you touch the flesh of gods and find that its stone
Just like everything else
You flay the dreams of those below as they sleep on pyrite clouds
Many times before it was so high up
Taunting mortality and reason with holy keep-away
The diamond tears of dragons and ghosts
Raining from nowhere
Freezing on the surface of faith
Upwards and outwards
Building a bridge into a staircase
And the first arrogant ape crossed it,
Hungry and knowing it for the first time ever

then I could count every star
that roams through our twilit world.
But if I were to take each second, each beat, each breath
and compare them to your shallow life,
I would instantly know what a mistake you really are.
When the night comes and I'm alone,
I hope that maybe cables and wires will bring you closer.
I wait for the oddity in your voice that I can't define.
I can hear your breath in my ear from a few nights ago.
And I can't stand myself for feeling this way.

Where ancient giants, fauns, that bleat in seas
So green, was once seen. Lusting for lost sheep,
The rag runes on their skin, the Wise chant in glee:
Hail! You have reigned on ocean minds so long,
We ride eroded shore of lore that you've drawn.
Hail! You have reigned on!
Hail! You have reigned on
The wisp of dragons, lost within woods so fond.
I listen to their breath, a cup of tea

Will soon heal. When it does, my Nature, so flawed,

slow sliding continental shift
one particle at a time--
our vantage point unchanged for years

and we will remain deceptively still

but we can cast back
explore the ages we contain,
kept safe inside ourselves.

In twilight, as sun sets on my last year,
A message draws my gaze toward the west:
A girl in black proffers to me a test,
A sweet confession whispered in my ear.
A sparrow's heart is beating in my breast:
To think that love from friendship's seed had grown!
A hand to hold, an eye to catch my own,
Tranquility upon a sea of rest.
The heartbeat pacing in its cage of bone
As if to burst forth to its calling twin
Itself calls out, invites a lover in:
Why let her spend another day alone?
But if her mouth should meet mine in a kiss,
Those hearts might burst, o'erfull with newfound bliss.

we will leave our trail

gathering fog and scents and

They spoke no words, so as not to ruin the effect. And, in return, no words found them. Their eyes drank in each other, greedily attempting to slake the unquenchable, before the door closed between them, slamming them each back into their own respective worlds.
