Alone I stand among the dead,
Single survivor of the army I once led,
What went wrong, when it came
The end of my time, its end game .
Without her to hold me near
Years wasted for a fruitless search
Still she is out of my reach.
Fires still rage on the black peak
Fueled by the blood of both bold and meek
On top of it all she lives alone,
Inside the tower made of black stone.
I hear their cries, the clash of steel
Her minions closing in for their next meal
I feel the cold biting breeze
Causing all my senses to freeze
There she was, my lovely Ice Queen
Still like an angel, how long has it been
Her once lovely eyes are no more
Only crystals, frozen to the core.
A smile plays on her lips
Fills me with a familiar feeling of bliss
Her voice tears into my heart, sharper than a lance
Against that, I never stood a chance.
Words flowed into my near deaf ears
“Oh dear Ralph, it has been years
Have you come to carry me away?
Or is my life still in your way? “
Gathering my last breath I yell
With a voice that could be heard till hell
“It’s time for you to sleep dear,
And I will end my life here “.
Her cold voice shatters the silence
And her words confirmed that I lost my chance
“Why do you do this to me ?
Why can’t you just let me be ?
Times have changes, so did I
It’s time my dear, to say goodbye.
There was a time when I waited for a day
When you would come to take me away
Not any more love, your time is past
Here in these lands you will breathe your last. “
As I close my tired eyes,
All I see is her face wreathed in ice
Farther down into darkness I fall
Bouncing around like a lifeless doll
My heart burning with her last few words
“Oh but I still love you among all the lords”
A single teardrop falls on my scarred chest
At last I smile, perhaps it was all for the best.
