Laemos Poem

I’ve been trying to go deeper for my characters, creating meaningful memorable events.

Laemos is young shaper, and his life is changed after thousands of his men are slaughtered in an event of betrayal. Here is the poem he writes along the path his men walked, when they traveled together nights before.

Laemos’ Poem

O’

Lay your back behind me,

I will be your shield,

Blood and Sin defy me,

Through Art, We May all heal!

No love I’m bereft, so why must stars trickle down on me?

Unlinked myself, yet incapable of thine capital despondencies!

Scars borne, now dirt trodden, left to redden with blood the fields,

Men I mourned, nearly forgotten,

A score o’ comrades who lost their shields

O’

Lay your back behind me,

I will be your shield,

Though Blood and Sin defy me,

Through Art, We May all heal!

The Silver threads of dreamed hope, mirages in my distance

I walk the edge, faithless, rote. My cuts are basal bleedings.

For what is there to bring me from despairs so unrelenting

An unmet stare, a hero now? My soul is unrepentant.

“I must find solace”

But where to start

My heart is slowly ripping!

In depth dark ocean,

She came with Art,

calmed threads; her gentle, lonely pickings
