Shall the Marring Be Amended?

Where shall the lords of the West come from?
Where shall their aid spring forth?
From the mountains, biding their time?
From the fields, soaked with blood?
Or from the great and immeasurable ocean
Where Ulmo Falmahír once dwelt?

Atari, why do you not heed their words?
Has Melkor thus hardened your hearts?
What is this deafness to ancient wisdom?
Where is the kinship that was once between
the Children of the Sun and the Children of the Moon?

Eruhíni, why have you strayed from the Road?
Arda Marred, all roads are bent
but the Straight Road lies before you yet.
Why do you fade?
Who am I to you? A name in oaths and vows alone?
Was it not I who commanded the Valar
And wrought your music before giving it unto them?

there are demons in your eyes, darling; fall asleep listening to their screams, fall asleep tracing your ribcage and wonder if maybe your heart is a ghost, maybe your heart is haunting someone, somewhere. fall asleep and dream of needles prodding at your mind, pulling out the weeds as if your mind was a garden, your mind is a garden but once the weeds are gone, there is nothing but dirt; dirt and worms and nightmares and screams. dream of fingers shoved down your throat, and they have found your heart and your heart is not a ghost, no, your heart is alive, because the fingers are clawing your heart and it hurts like fingernails o

We breathe heavily as we face each other Hearts at a race as the truth uncovers Down my neck Rolls a drop of sweat As I realize just where we're at Anxious yet nervous   Scared is not the word but, What would happen if someone heard us The thought quickly leaves As you come even closer to me My heart skips and I forget to breathe A quarter inch from you I can't run, why would I want to? You know I want you, and I see what you want too My arms slowly wrap around your waist Your sweetness I prepare to taste We tilt heads and our lips barely touch Slowly part, then back again, This time quenching tongue's thirst for lust

A Quenta Silmarillion based poem. I own none of this, as Tolkien already does.

This and the Quenya version are both very lovely. :D The language (both of them) really suits it, and even though I'm usually not into nonryming poetry, I really like this one. Arien approves :sun:

I already told you how I feel about this.. but I love it, and I don't usually like poetry, so that's a big compliment :heart:
