Walk Into the Light

I was shown the door, “walk into the light”
Peace it can be had, if one is contrite
I have many lives, and wish I could forget
But for all my wrongs, I feel I paid my debt
Into nothingness I go, finally at peace
But it will not last, I’ll never find release

The Chosen One

Wishing to escape, find a better life
All so mundane, with bleakness and strife
One day you find, you’re the chosen one
Whisked away to a world, wondrous and fun
Pull back the curtain, the horrors you will find
The magic turning sour, in this role you’re confined

Living Worlds Apart

Another poem about the third of my major role-playing characters, the bladesinger Zardilann Darhtill.

An imaginary friend, who’s always on my mind
Keeper of my heart, who’s always left behind
Once you may have lived, I doubt we’d ever met
Only sorrow grows, and I wish I could forget
We live worlds apart, never eye to eye
Take my heart away, and let us say goodbye

Cold Inside

A poem about the second of my major role-playing characters, the archmage Bhaerau Spellvein.

When the morning comes, I’m already awake
Always in the dark, after my mistake
The only thing I feel, is the cold inside
Ever since that day, I left my life and died
If my heart could talk, regret is all I’d say
Never take that plunge, and leave the light of day
