One more sequel to 'Riding into the dark'. Past is already left behind and the future is not started yet. And you sort of hanging between them...

Night before the battle


Old blade in my hand shines faint blue

Reminds me of battles we won.

Waiting and watching is hardest, true,

When nothing can be done.

Wind howls like a hound from hell,

Something is coming, I canít be wrong.

Will none remember how we fell,

Or our story will be in a song?

The future only Goddess knows,

The past is washed away by rain,

No matter which way the story goes,

If it casts me down Iíll rise again!

One of those dark-heroic poems! I like how you do them. This should be in the "Dark Roads" collection too. (Or how'd I call it then?)
Anyway, awsome job.

This is awesome. I like how you show what the hero is feeling. It could almost be a speech he's using to rouse his comrades.

Just one spot that bothered me a bit: "Will none remember how we fell, Or our story will be in a song?" I'd delete the second "will" to make it flow better.

Anyway, I'm enjoying your "Dark Roads" poems.
