Lost

A Poem

By Linda Heuer

In darkest night there is a sound
A shriek, a cry, a plea.
I look but briefly all around
But no one else I see.

I shudder long and tremble more
Not knowing what I hear.
A dog? A Horse? A beast of yore?
My frenzied thoughts do jeer.

How came I here, I do not know
But curse the bitter cold.
The wind doth cut the spirit low
Which used to be so bold.

Alas I do not know the way
To leave this Nightmare land.
I try to keep my fears at bay
And take a lonely stand.

All night I say upon the hill
As terrors 'round me leap.
Around my eyes the monsters kill
What e'er they find asleep.

For now I understand that sound
The shriek, the cry, the plea.
The knowledge sends me to the ground;
The cry echoes through me.

I know I'm here forever more
Within these woods of ill.
Trapped in the darkest depths of lore,
Tears from my eyes do spill.

Alone I stand against the cold.
Alone I'll always be.
Alone within my heart I hold
But one last shining key.

For tho I stay within the night
No others need do so.
For I alone can choose to fight
And land a winning blow.

All tears are gone new resolve rings
I'll win before I'm done.
Once more with laughter my soul sings
I'll fight and see the sun!

That was pure poetry ;) I'm glad to see you post again I really enjoyed it.

Thanks Dwayne. I've always enjoyed writing poetry. I do ever so love to rhyme. ;)

We finally get a glimpse of what it is like being married to Weston...

Oh, aren't we the funny one?

Wes!?! Was that Weston? He actually read something on the blog. I believe that is the final sign of the apocalypse. Nice knowing you all.

To be honest, it was pretty short, and his wife did write it. Until he finishes Terra Mortis I, then we'll no the end is nigh...
