A/N: This is a poem, but written in song format (as in it has a four line stanza that repeats like a chorus). This is from Maedhros's point of view, and he's talking to Amras (just Amras. Don't ask me why.)

Disclaimer: Characters, Events, and Places owned by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Rating: PG because these are Feanor's sons

Summery: Maedhros grieves after the third kin-slaying. *Non-slash one shot*.

Title: The Little One Weeps

Blood on ivory hands will stain the soul

Innocent eyes don't affect a heart black as coal

Even icy hearts mourn for what can never be found

And tears of glass shatter on the ground.

Fire, ash, and tears of blood from the sky

Cannot stop the blinded when the goal is nigh

Lost in grief the little one weeps

As brother's blood upon him seeps

Never more to taste the rain

Never more to love again

Locked in ice my heart shall be

Until my soul again watches over thee

Bodies on the rocks there lie

As angel tears fall from the sky

Jewel of light forever lost

As red hair, like blood, lies on the frost

Fire, ash, and tears of blood from the sky

Cannot stop the blinded when the goal is nigh

Lost in grief the little one weeps

As brother's blood upon him seeps

Hearts we've broken, lives we've torn

Loss and grief we have born

Weary of this world we are

Yet we will never again go where no men are

Tears of the last cannot return

Escape from the punishment we justly earn

Lost to this world are those most dear

Tears will not stop from the last ones near

Fire, ash, and tears of blood from the sky

Cannot stop the blinded when the goal is nigh

Lost in grief the little one weeps

As brother's blood upon him seeps

Where is the innocence of the killers now by

Lusting after the jewel now lost in the sky

After jewel or after love?

Matters not, now both are above.

Hold them dear, though both are away.

Souls gone, but bodies stay.

Testament of their brothers' lies

Ever reflected in empty gray eyes.

Fire, ash, and tears of blood from the sky

Cannot stop the blinded when the goal is nigh

Lost in grief the little one weeps

As brother's blood upon him seeps.

Well, I hope that turned out okay. I know if I don't post it now, I'll reread it and hate it ^^;. Thanks for reading, and review if you'd like!
