Thread: Wizard and Glass poetry

  1. #1

    Default Wizard and Glass poetry

    I wrote a poem based on a certain scene in The Dark Tower IV. Spoiler warning: reveals the fate of a primary character.

    Spoiler:
    The Last Sunrise

    The silver light
    Casts ghosts upon her skin
    Upon her horse
    Anxious, she waits for him

    He cleans his guns
    Knowing this night, he can
    Never go back
    Once, for love, blood is spilled

    Ka is a wheel
    To deny it, a curse
    But forsaken love,
    Like death, is surely worse

    In this world that
    Has moved on, its said
    Ka is a wind,
    And so tears will be shed

    In their embrace,
    They know this to be true
    His quest is hard,
    Yet he must see it through

    He plants her face
    Into his heart and mind
    Not knowing that
    This is their last goodbye

    Betrayed again
    By the evil pink glass

    And though the flames
    Engulf most of her cries
    I love thee! she screams into the last sunrise

    Default i wrote this

    about 4 years ago after i finished the series
    its a little corny but it was what i was feeling at the time


    My quest

    I quest for the dark tower

    You say im insane

    that this is all there is

    but that just cant be

    there are other

    worlds than these

    open your eyes

    to the truth right there

    in front of you

    all things serve the tower

    all things follow the beams

    and if you dont know what i mean

    open your ears

    hear the song of the rose

    grab your guns

    you are now a gunslinger

    and we are ka-tet

    protect the rose

    quest for the tower

    follow the beam

    and serve ka

    those are my goals

    those are the things

    that haunt my dreams

    i want to travel

    farther than this world

    i want to travel to

    the dark tower

    niytemare and LastGuns1nger: thank you for posting! The question is: LastGuns1nger, don't you want to start a thread of your own? I mean, then you could post all your DT-related works there. Unless, of course, niytemare meant this thread for everybody who writes W&G poetry.

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hell, why not post your poems in the same thread? This way it will be easier to compare them. I'm glad my posted prompted someone else to share their ideas.
    Thanks for checking it out!

    Default Artwork

    There is artwork to go with this poem, not entirely clear how to post it. I tried following the directions in the sticky, but it wasn't giving me the option.
