alone again forever
upon this dark black night
yet even in this darkness
there is quite a light
it glimers in the air
it glimers in my hand
but this light is evil
it comes not from mortal land
it comes from elven blade
a thing no mortal needs
with a simple word of warning
that no mortal ever heeds
so I own this cursed blade
that turns upon my brain
it makes me go crazy
all I lose it shall gain
I lose my mind and heart
and all the things I love
I lose my clothes and sword
even my leather glove
then the blade takes my soul
as it delves deep inside
and I fall forever
into a place to hide...

Oo! Neato.. You're much better with poems than I am! I fear putting up any of my own in my section of the Library for fear of being laughed at! *L*

very bland. you need to put more emotion into it.

In the dark night of ignorance shines the light of knowledge. Yet what be the price of knowledge? (Okay, that was a bit cliche. Sorry!)

I thought this poem was great not bland at all!

This was a cool poem with a great concept. I can occasionally generate decent poetry... once in a blue moon. This made some really cool images pop into my head. The only thing you need to work on is the rhythm, which I know is hard and evil to get it right. It's a very nice poem, good job! =)

This sounds like it should be in Lord of the Rings series... written about the magical elven blades! Beautiful... i love your style!

It was great. Its hard to put anything to words. It was great.

This is beautiful. I love the theme and the words you've chosen. My only advice, to make it perfect, would be to either pay heed to the rhythm and don't try to make it rhyme, or craft and craft and craft until both rhythm and rhyme work. The reason for this is that, when read outloud, poetry that has rhyme and no consistant rhythm, just sounds sloppy. This is a goregous piece, so don't let inconsistant timing harm it!
