Read an Excerpt:
we all walk through the forest and follow the river
past the grounded chariot
which still sits there silent and lifeless
watching us pass it by
we watch the river stretch out and expand
soon we will be home
a strange feeling
I never felt this way about the compound and the tower
at times, I miss the view
the one nice thing about being the Watcher
had been the endless expanse of the horizon
the world seemed endless from above
where the river ends is a compromise
my view isn’t as far up from the ground
but the water itself goes over the edge of the world
there is an endless sunset
into a distant dawn
only there is no abyss gazing back
I feel at peace with that view
something I never felt back where I was born
it was mine
it is great to not be alone
to know that at long last we will be safe
my meager stick of a home can now grow
become a small hearth where we share stories
dreaming dreams without dragons…
all is ruined at river’s end.
my home already reduced to ash
the sand around it changed to glass
all that was mine is no more
I grip my ebony blades in rage
who would dare do this to me?
didn’t they know that this was mine?
my blood boils
I want to make them pay
