Peace was slowly creeping

Peace was slowly creeping

The man with the ashen heart was back his eyes were glowing his shield was black. His sword was red with blood he has spilt, his soul was black with pain and guilt.

he can laugh in face of danger, shrug at certain death, fight off entire armies, until none of his strength is left. He rides from the east in glory, he will ride from the south in pride, he will challenge all his enemies until everyone has died.

But even as a warrior terrible and cold his burning anger had reviled itself as suffering untold. His eyes were surprisingly soft with a dark and defeated gaze my heart leapt as I saw a teardrop sparkle through the morning haze.

He smiled and shook his head, dropped his sword of red. He could not continue fighting, his fire had long been dead. The once fiery eyes were cold his destiny untold, and as we glared accusingly his story did unfold.
He told great of betrayal, of terror, and of death, Spinning us the story that took away our breath. He told of how his spirit had been broken years before, and of dreadful hallow lies and raging glorious war.

With that he walked away his sword still on the ground his steps were slow and steady as if peace is what he’d found. Peace was slowly creeping back upon the earth, but I never saw the man again, the man who had been hurt. His sword is still sitting upon the hardened ground, and in a peaceful silence the earth makes not a sound.
