Lost Tales of Love and War

Tales untold,
Profound, bitter,
Curtained by shadows,
Veiled in mist,
Lost in dim expanses-

Now unfurl,
Before my eyes,
Unheard voices,
Speak over again,
Forgotten scenes recalled,
Neglected oaths considered;
Is elucidation to come?
Or are we to remain,
Shrouded in eternal darkness?
Once more…

Wars resumed over mislaid causes,
Aged romances roused,
Conquered fear is yet liberated-
Unimpeded, entering our souls,
But with it overlooked joy is reinstated,
And lost hope is found.

Fiery eyes,
Stare once again,
Evil without reason;
And Angels rise,
Untainted and pure,
Flowing like fresh water,
Spreading love as they flow.

One is all and one will remain,
Love is and love overcame,
War rises, from but love,
Hate would not be, but for love;
Love relates as love sees,
Love calls as love feels,
Love shatters as love builds,
Love confronts, as she shields.

These tales tell much,
But they achieve much more:
Memories can reduce you to tears,
Legends make strong hearts sore,
And soft words are sufficient to dispel most fears…
