Pain Not Passing

(for hour 9—this too shall pass prompt—from Onweald)


Pain Not Passing

(by the character Nigel Taiman)



How can one body endure sorrow such as this

Not even when lashed by The Dragon’s claws did I know such pain

You were the one who was to live

to succeed

to outlast


How am I to go on without you

Mia tells me time will heal these wounds

She knows not the depth of the pain

from the memory of your fall

Kaylin tells me this too shall pass

She is a false prophet

to be protected from the caves of Tiurlang

Tell me who is to protect me

from the caves of my brain

when night falls

and the second moon reaches its zenith

and the Dragon comes for me

filled with anger at our loss of you
