The cold air blew me through
As I walked along the moon's path.
But nothing to be done
could stop this painful wrath.
I want to spread my wings,
to fall back among the clouds endlessly,
To be open to roam the skies.
I just want this soul to be free.
I stopped my strides suddenly
and saw before my very own eyes
A flash of my requiem destiny --
Fate and destiny about to arise.
I talk upon these gilded arms
and wield them for the sake of you.
Journeys of unrequited love,
Oh, hero, if only you knew.
I longed to be always stay by your side
and with a single tear rolling down my cheek,
I just couldn't look you in the eye
for a feeling I'd be weak.
I hold steadfast to my pride.
But I give my heart in return.
For when I forever leave you
these growing feelings will yearn.
I leave you this painful regret
but there's nothing else to hide.
Just only a single memory burning in my mind --
the night you had first cried.
She had died and meant so much
So, I knew I wouldn't last that long.
I tried desperately not to hold on,
but what can I say? I don't belong.
This childish hope is weary
and I wear to save my soul
But this, I never forget:
It was you who made me whole.
When I first saw that smile of yours,
I knew I fell in love with you.
Such happiness bursting within,
I hoped you felt it too.
I know from this sword's gleam
It's goodbye, farewell, so long my friend.
It's midway of my life's journey,
but not quite the end.
I keep you close to my soul.
When I leave, we'll be forever apart.
But I hold no weeping grudges,
For your kindness is engraved in my heart.
- Title: Twilight's Hero
- Artist: Dani Strider
Sorry if it's kinda bad... it's been a while since I've written a poem.
It's also heavily influenced by the ending of Twilight Princess, but it is it's own story entirely.
The story: After a long hard war in the name of another kingdom, a girl is reflecting on how her own destiny must be played out and how she came to know the revered hero that everyone loved. She eventually realizes how she must go off to fight her own battles and let her beloved hero lead a peaceful life without her.
