Black the night that closed around me,
(Now I see!)
When I listened as He promised
Long I waited; still she turned and
Looked on you!
Son of few years, quickly fading:
Shadows steals across the City,
I shall drown both star and candle:
Bring the Night.
See the furnace-glow of crimson?
Hear the roar?
To Doom I have brought completion:
Bloody chaos breaks around me,
I shall find her – she'll forget you:
But your arms are strong as iron,
Have no doubt;
Past the rail meant to save me
I spill out.
Seven times they jagged crush me,
'Til I fall no more but lie here-
Blood-stained rise the walls above me,
As light through deep water darkly:
Ragged, now, my cloak of glory,
Here in silence ends this story:
Here lies dead.
A/N: *peeking out* Hi all! Hope I didn't give you nightmares. This one was pretty disturbing. I hope you like it, Crackers - Merry Christmas. And just to clear a few things up, Maeglin is first person, Tuor is second, 'she' refers to Idril, and 'He' is Morgoth. This is also my first time writng in this meter.
~RandomCelt - she, who for all her creepy-and-disturbing-1-in-the-morning-imagination, is still not in possession of the Professor's lovely characters...
..and Maeglin did bounce seven times when Tuor pushed him off, didn't he? I hope it wasn't three times - can't remember...
