One Ring

Into the night I roam,
demons created in pain and malcontent
close on my heels,
my death they hunger
their master’s only edict.
So many sacrifices,
friendships forged,
only to be lost in the chaos
one piece of gold compelled.
Alone I go,
no one else will I lose
to this mission of futility.
Through war and greed
I travel on.
Into the fire
I must go,
for only then
will this madness end.

    1. Thank you. Listening to LOTR soundtracks while I write. So of course I get sidetracked with a poem that has nothing to do with what I’m working on. 😛

      1. Sometimes it’s hard. Sometimes when I can’t get started, I sit down with a pencil and paper and just start writing. Helps.
