The Storm Has Passed…

The Storm Has Passed

And Yet I Stand here…

The Black Sea is Calm

And I can see you…

Far Away… Beneath this Winter Moon

You Look the same…

Though, your Face is Less Clear now

Your Red Hair Still Glistens under the Moon, and Starlight…

And yet… It looks more faded

I have Mourned the Loss of you for 8 Months now…

And yet the Thought of you… Gone now

Never to Love Me again

I Fall to my Knees

What Fate Does this oh so Cruel Sky Hold for me…

I am a Capture of my Own Beating Heart

The One that Knew you…

The One… Who Loved you

Our Fifth Year has fallen to the Wind

And you have Moved on

Yes… The Storm has passed

But how long shall I Last Upon This Broken Barge…

Once a Flagship… To Some Greater Thing

Some… Sublime And Peaceful Place

A Warm Home

And Will My Heart Ever Return to me…

And Fall within My Chest…

Like Ten Thousand Falling Stars…

Breaching Me

Filling me… With a New Love

Leaving My Past Like a Battering Sea

Upon These Broken Cliffs

I Am Not Yours… No

Not anymore

Not for a Long, Long Time

We are no more

My Green Eyes Light Flickers…

Softly now

Oh that they might be Bright Again

Tales of The Dark Rider – Kin

Posted in Blog Series, Dark Rider, Entertainment, Fantasy, Fiction, Tales of The Dark Rider with tags , on February 9, 2012 by darkjade68

THE MOUNTAINS OF EDECK

Some 7 or so miles from the Dark Cave where The Dark Rider is being held captive… The Grey Ranger Flynn Rider and his Party Track their way up the mountain…

With him, the Young Ranger Theliad Rider… Nephew to Flynn.

And his trained Wolf, Earqui.

And Bringing up the rear…

The Gentle Warrior, Axxafor.

“All of this climbing, makes Axxafor a very sad Warrior…” exclaims Axxafor as he trudges along.

“Come along Axxafor… You’re putting us behind schedule… Soon the Sun shall set…” replies Theliad.

“That is my intention…” interjects Flynn… “Send the Wolf ahead Theliad, we need not be ambushed by Troglodytes and such…” Flynn issues.

“GO EARQUI!!” Theliad Commands, and Earqui runs off ahead.

 

 

A DARK CAVE FURTHER UP THE MOUNTAIN

The Dark Rider tries his best to break free of his Magical Chains…

To no avail…

“WHY DON’T YOU KILL ME COWARD!!” he yells out, barely able to maintain his consciousness, as he has been wounded, and under fed.

“OR DO YOU FEAR THE WRATH OF MY GHOST, WHO WILL SURELY TAKE YOU IN YOUR SLEEP!!” he continues, but The Scarlet Bandit does not come.

THE SOUTHERN VALLEY

HOME TO THE BROTHERHOOD OF MEDUN

Ukorian and his Comrades of The Brotherhood of Medun, Eat, Drink, Sing and make Merry…

“Ohhhh… The Roads Shall Come… And The Roads Shall Go… The Nights Are Long… And Enemies Shall Come…”

Ukorian senses something, and walks away from the fire where he finds Iloh.

“ILOH! IS THAT YOU” he is very happy to see her, and takes her into his arms and swings her about… Until he notices her somber brow.

“What is it Iloh?” he inquires.

“Ems and Largoth are dead… Slane by Assassins from the North…” she replies.

“What… That’s impossible… Why me and my men just saw Ems a week ago… He was alive and well” Ukorian insists.

“Largoth was killed four nights ago, at his home… Fortunately he had sent his Wife and Sons away… But I fear for them as well” she explains, as Ukorian looks on in utter shock.

“And Ems was taken down within his Tavern three nights ago, along with the Patrons that were there at the time… It doesn’t appear that they’re shooting for discreet… This smells of Revenge…” she explains.
