To the tower of pain he rode with haste,
Across the barren, burning landscape,
Through the wild and haunted places,
Through the wood of fallen graces.
Hooves on earth, thundering swell,
Pushing his steed over weeded dell.
Anger pushing his heated search,
To remove the evil from marbled perch.
A knight of old, a quest of good,
To save a land as any knight should.
Through a poisoned swamp’s wet,
He would repay his honourable debt.

He reaches the tower that shoots to the night,
He hears the Evil’s laughing bite,
From high up in Evil’s lair,
His sword drawn, it’s point to share.
The gate stands open to welcome the man,
No need for thought or awkward plan.
Brute force is the only rule to this day,
Launching from steed into the frey.
Swords clash as he fights the masses,
Metal on metal, sparks and flashes.
Red spills on the courtyard stone,
Breathing heavy he stands alone.

He climbs the stairway to find his quarry,
The man who stole the love he would marry.
Demons wait, another test,
He expected nothing less.
Howls of wraiths and claws of beast,
Wanting nothing more than a hero’s feast.
He dispatches them all with glowing sword,
Nothing more than an annoying horde,
He stands before the wickedest of men,
This man who caused his love’s bitter end.
With sword in hand he rushes the bastard,
The shrilling laughter was the last thing he heard.

On bended knee he catches his breath,
Contemplating what is lost and left.
Weary and tired, tears flowing down cheek,
Feeling alone and weak.
He stands with sword, and looks out to the day,
The clouds giving up their mantle of grey.
As the sun peaks out from that cloudy sheet,
Longing for his woman, and the day they would meet.
He removes his sword and stained gloves,
Holds his hands up, trying to remember his love.
He walks to the window, his love has been found,
Our hero smiles as he hits the ground.
