Summary: The Ring ruled his life, like the depth of his soul, it kept hunting him.

Written for Teitho Feb theme: Good and Evil


The moment as he saw the shine through the deep water, he felt as though it was calling only to him.

Where once was light
Now darkness falls

And yet, he could not stop seeing in his mind the surprise look that shown upon Deagol, as he was the one that killed him for the one Ring, as it crawled into his heart, filling it with darkness and yet with emptiness.


Where once was love,
Love is no more

Nothing but anger and emptiness felt his darkened heart, filling his mind with an endless thought about someone trying to steal the Ring from him.


Don't say goodbye
Don't say I didn't try

Though Sméagol did try, as he took the ring while he killed Deagol.


These tears we cry
are falling rain
For all the lies you told us
The hurt, the blame
And we will weep to be so alone
We are lost
We can never go home

So alone, with no right path, knowing that if he returned home, it will be his death, for killing his best friend, and becoming a creature… thus the ring saved him, the Ring it was the only friend he had, but he can never go home.

So in the end,
I'll be what I will be

A creature, to their eyes as the Ring takes rule over my body.


No loyal friend
was ever there for me
Now we say good-bye
We say you didn't try

These tears you cry
Have come too late
Take back the lies
The hurt the blame
And you will weep
when you face the end alone

You are lost
You can never go home
You are lost
You can never go home

It was the truth, as he wandered around Middle Earth, kept going to where the Ring mysteriously led him, which was never towards home, that was forever lost to him now, as he was lost.

The Ring was the depth of his soul.
