You grappled dragons and slayed gorgons;
you drifted on seas of sirens
to state your name.

Dominions were built with the strength of
mountains,
but moss-covered
limestone
crumbled at your fingertips.

Why is it you never expected
more than muscles to grow weary?

Fretting over fights;
jetties at night
full of skeletons piled high.

Hush the crowd with one word,
always unheard,
they continue to love you.

In your dreams, you wished for recompense.
Their defense: you deserved none.

Nightmares are now escapes from reality-
a quiet confidentiality-
not the other way around.

So wear that badge of courage,
badgered by the current
of the overflowing river of fame.


This is what you wanted.
OKAY, so a huge description edit is in order.
So, I logged onto DA this morning, just like I usually do, and I was like, "La la la~, checkin' DA~ I have 30+ messages~ ... :iconpetrifiedplz:" <-- Actual reaction.

A huge, huge thank-you to SavageFrog for suggesting this (I'm a big fan of the things you've suggested in the past, and I actually remember your username from when you checked me out a while back!) and GrimFace242 for featuring (also a big fan of the works you've featured, as well as your own works, and Ialwayslovelookingatyourprofile, /cough)

To everyone who faved, watched, commented, and featured me in a group, you guys are beautiful. :rose: It really means a lot that I can write something that other people like and feel something for. It's a pretty powerful thing, and I can't hank you all enough for that.

I humbly thank you!

Ooh searing. I felt that bite. I felt the lingering, sharp burn that it all ended on. Best part is the end. ^.^


Fascinating, Rosella. xx

more than muscles to grow weary?"

The edit didn't notify me (mentions are so special~ XD)

I'm glad you're happy about the DD; it's very well written with excellent imagery of a story that most would be familiar with. :la:
