A look into the Black Knight - Prepare for Battle and Pray for Dawn

The Castle's Keep

Take my hand - Go ahead - I dare you,
Follow me into my castle's keep.
Thru crooked passages and hallways,
Beware the demons that you will meet.
~~~
These castle walls drip blood from my soul,
From years of anguish, torment and pain.
Staining the ancient morter and stone,
Dark crimson red is all that remains.
~~~
A flicker of light - a windblown flame,
Casting shadows - evil and macarbe.
The only guiding light showing the way,
Illuminates from my blackened heart.
~~~
If you dare to venture you must take heed,
Be determined and you must be strong.
If you plan to escape the Castle's Keep
Prepare for batlle and pray for Dawn.
~~~

Wow my knight, for surely you are the knight here in your castle. Absolutely loved the ending to a superbly written poem! If I may repeat, If you plan to escape the castle's keep prepare for battle and pray for dawn! This is awesome and no mistaken that your talent always jumps out and off the pages. Could this write be fiction combined with non? Ten plus from me my friend! Hugz
