What was it all for?

The anguish and pain?

Your eyes accuse me...

Like flames in the rain

I slowly fade.

-o-

Why have we done this?

Blood is a stain,

Blood of my kinsfolk

Will always remain -

Never to fade.

-o-

I still see your face

The last day of all

You said, We do this,

Whatever befall!

We shall not fade.

-o-

Then your only hand

Was burning as mine,

We are not worthy

Of their pure shine.

Jewels cannot fade.

-o-

You fled to the fire

Like Atar, I think

Embers within you

Sent you to the brink...

You did not fade.

-o-

What was it all for?

The anguish and pain?

Your eyes accuse me...

Like flames in the rain

I slowly fade.

Another poem - I guess I'm due for one, but this fic just popped out of the blue in the space of about 30 minutes...
Weird. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed it. Just to clear things up, Maglor is first person and Maedros is second person. As always, NO slash. Reviews would be lovely. :D
