Walking along a well worn trail



My friends and family call out with love



Their song fills my old heart with joy of old



But ever shrunken their land has become



Ever shrinking thanks to Eru's latest born



Ever shrinking despite the warnings of Elves



For ships and war they fell, burn and fall



They need timber and wood and care not from where



The timbers come from me and my family born



We should clothe the Earth in growth and shade



Not burn, build and shred the temporary scorn



There must be a point where they've had enough



The progeny of Numenor and Men of other blood



Their insatiable thirst for all that is green



There'll be nothin left soon and no air to breath



My mother, Yavanna, the Queen of the Earth



Cries constantly at her gifts being wasted with greed



For they wont last forever these gifts from afar



Then even Fangorn will diminish and leave our world



Along with myself and my Love, the Rivers Daughter



For Old Tom I am and shall no longer be



The guardian of an ever a shrinking land



I once saw a Ring and thought nothing at all



It made, to me no sense, but now I understand



For I now know the meaning though missed It long ago



The halfling possessed it and gave it to me



For a moment I had it but didn't know why



Perhaps I had the chance to use it and save



The last chance to keep the forests alive



But nay, that is foolish, a trinket it was



But at that time and age my world was vast



Now it is spoilt and ruined and almost gone



Lets hope that what remains can preserve a time



Before the First Born were gone



And the Shepherds roamed



They're all gone now and so am I

I will probably upload the first chapter of my story, for anyone who's interested, tonight. It ended up longer than I thought so it's now a short chapter story.

I hope you are alright.



 



Just take your time;)

It seems that yet another month has passed by and I didn't even realize it..



But what I realized, is that during these past thirty days, I've barely been online on this glorious site.



So. Absent as always..



 



I have been way too lazy with writing, but I guess it's good that I've kept some break, 'cause I always fear that a day will arrive when I find myself suffering from a writer's block.



And I cannot let that happen.



 



Today, I re-worked two lyrics that I've planned for our band's forthcoming second demo/EP, but nothing is certain, since I need to show them to our guitarist/frontman first and get his approval to use them on the demo itself.



And those of you who have been waiting for something new will have that today.. or tonight.



Depends on how fast I get to work.



'The Blackened Moon' is the working title and it's going to be partly a poem and partly a short story.



 



PS. I'll strive to upload the work in time, but then again, I'm the master of delays..



So if nothing else, I wish you all a good evening!



- Oerath.

I guess I'll put some more effort into that work and write it as a short story. I haven't done those for a while, so..



Ah, but here's something. I found this one from my 08-09' archives and after re-writing the whole text, I'm quite satisfied at the result, though I must say it isn't that great.



Oh well, cheesy mind can only create cheesy things. I hope you folks will enjoy of it nonetheless.



Oerath bows and leaves.



 



The Lord of Unholy Light



 



A black raven flew across the dark sky



It was flying towards the ghostly lands, it was the messenger of night



And when the sky finally changed it's bright colored clothes to dim black



That raven arrived to it's master's den.. To home of the damned



 



There, it told to it's master about the strength of mortal men



And that sooner or later, they would march here to challenge his might



But he only laughed at the raven and ordered it to fly back to the world's end



To welcome these brave mortal men, who would so boldly challenge him.. The lord of unholy light



 



And fourteen days and fourteen nights later, when he was standing on the balcony of his castle..



He looked into the horizon and saw tens of thousands of golden spears



Upon seeing their vast army, he readied himself for the great battle



Which would finally show to this world that a true lord of the night does not fear



 



And then it finally began.. A night that didn't seem to end



But despite the efforts of the mortal warriors, the lord's minions finally managed to corner them



And with all of their shields, spears and armors broken, they had no other choice but to surrender



 



''The demon's kept dancing, mocking and laughing around the warrior's of men, but they all silenced when the lord himself jumped off the balcony of his castle and descended on the battlefield, almost breaking the whole ground in half. Wearing a dark and heavy looking armor and a burning skull helmet, he looked like death itself.  And he wielded a burning two-handed sword that seemed to have thousands of eyes on it's steel.. Eyes that kept blinking constantly. Upon seeing him, the remaining warrior's of men fled in terror and fear. The demon's seemed to fear him too, even though he was their master. And then he looked at those wretched and weak little mortals, trying to reach a nearby forest for safety.



And of course, he couldn't allow that to happen.



By thrusting his burning sword through earth and soil, he muttered a few ancient words and sent forth an massive earthquake that tore the whole land apart. And then he just watched, as the mortal's fell into the depths, one by one.. Such a sight made him to smile with great pleasure and when all of their agonized screams of horror had faded, he pulled his sword from the ground and spoke for the first time during the whole battle by saying:



'Such weak creatures.. Such arrogance.. But at least they're good at something.. They're good at dying..'



Then he looked at his sword, which flames seemed to fade a little and continued: 'My sword.. It hungers for more..'



Soon, he realized that now he had something to satisfy the sword with.. And so he shouted at the demon's: 'Come, my minions..'



And by laughing madly, he ordered them to fetch all of the corpses from the pit and declared a great feast by saying:



'Let the harvest of souls begin!'

I accept your apology durin the deathless. Oh here's one not involving smeagol, k?
Love is dark. Love is light. And thus a thing of the night. Kiss the jewels of souls. The dwarves eyes of gold. Elves oh so bold. Hobbits......yup, we all get old.

Thanks, Mellon and Elbereth.



And oh! Nice to see you again, Elbereth. It's been quite a while.



Damn it was a mistake to start playing Diablo 2 again. The game feels ever so great, but it's so time consuming.. That's why I have been offline for the past few weeks.



Anyway, I'll write something new in the days to come. For once, I am not going to give away any entitles or such, but what I can tell is that it's going to be a song lyric. :)

hi I'm new here and I'm writing a book here is part of one of my poems....



 



When good is gone and evil conquers,



 be a light to they that wonder,



though the road grows ever longer,



follow the brighter path.
