I recently went on a poetry jag and I have a big new body of Star Wars poetry. Most are related to my Land and Sky AU but some are random Vader pieces that could honestly work for canon or either of my published AUs. I'm going to post them all as separate pieces of writing rather than as chapters in a collection because, especially with the Land and Sky ones, they're not written chronologically, and I'm sure that I will write more, so I'd end up having to edit the order of the chapters each time anyway.

Vader related poems thus far are:

Is This Goodbye


Once an angel alit in the desert
Silver wings and silken smile
Softness in a sea of coarse grain and anger
She held a secret
Guarded by a sage
Championed by the light
You gave your dreams to her in trust
For a future that was not to be
And your fingers shattered what they could not hold
Your grasping threw it all away
Now you stand alone in a sea of blackened velvet
Seeing only pinprick glimmers
Of a life that used to be
A hope that you abandoned
A truth that you denied
The angel has flown from the desert without you
But not alone.
