Am I raw to the living?
Does abrasion seep into your ears?
Is it I who is the fantasy?
Or The Hallowed one of fears?

I've seen the world without a sight,
Vanquished more than fickle pride.
It lingers as it builds infection,
And turtles as it hides.

A dosset of perfection,
In a world that you can't live.
A gift of simple yester-year,
Which sadly I can't give.

If panicked they WILL run,
For shepards ARE in short supply.
And the ONLY way they'll cross the rivers,
ARE with carrot-sticked white-lies.

Destitute, the meak emerge,
To reign over all reins.
To grip the fear, they hold so dear,
From a god that lives off gains.

An auspicious aura creeps the air,
As nations take to rise.
And from horizon's fading breath,
The dragons close their eyes...

    I like the spice of mythology. It's rare.

    Fantasy is fun, but maybe all this is a mythological fantasy to another reality? Idk, thanks for reading though, lol.

    Very poetic and melodic, I enjoyed reading it through a couple of times. I am glad to see you somehow managed to get to post new poems! :) The fourth verse is my favourite, very skilful. I'm most certainly looking forward to reading more of your poetry. Keep it up, my friend!
