Inspired by Hoot-Owl's Poem, Death of a poet

Death of Chevalier

Throughout my live, I could not see
That live was meant for me
I swore the oath to protected all thee
Never did I thought about me
Was blind along the craving lane
Soaring fights, so lame
Missed so much I could have had
Lost in thoughts, never mad
Hollow voices call out for me
Silence now, I lie there for thee
Moments risen out from rivers of Hades pool
A crying sound surrounds this fool
Once, a light flickering way up there
Now, no glimmer left to bear
I look up and use this heavy heart
Glorious once, so was my art
Dreams are shattered into the core
Nothing left of what I once swore
Horizons ahead dark, I cannot see clear
My eyes broken, dull they shine so near
Lonely the death of the chevalier


His sword once held up to fight
Crushed in his lonely heart that night
He served and protected his Queen
A dying chorus ode is within
Honor and Glory a fool's game past
His sword rusting, will never last
No soul cast it's eyes to him out there
This is the lonely death of the chevalier

Form heaven scrolls down a sword like leer
Taking the soul away of the dead chevalier

Wonderful

 Did Jesus laugh?
I think He did,
'cause He was once
a little kid;
and all of us
were made with joy
both sugar-spice girl
and snake-snail boy!

Helmut, my friend-
This is just wonderful !
I am taken by it's depth.
You are 'inspired' to a new height.

You managed to capture the flavor of that era and put it on paper. Well done
