Life Lines

We’ll never truly know when this is all meant to end. We walk and walk days at a time in hopes to position ourselves in a optimal form to take on the shadows that war upon us on a daily basis. Our army is of dwindling numbers, for some have been lost to the echo’s and others are now beginning to see nothing but uselessness in attempting to stay in the fight. I am still warring in all of this, but I too have grown tired of this endless cycle of pain and fighting – but even still, it seems that this was all I was meant to know. Could it be all I truly desired?

During this time I have begun to think back on the Cavern walls, and how during that time being sheltered in that treacherous and dangerous place seemed to be in essence, worse than hell itself.  Little did I know that here, outside in this grand scape, there is a violence much more sinister brewing that what had gone back back then, inside. With this in mind, I have quickly begun to think back to colder days, days when all I once knew felt distant, yet still in reach. For now, all that feels distant is either fading or has long since been no longer in reach. What curse have I fallen into? What waves will seek to devour me now?

Even during an hour like this, where the morphing’s begin again above, sheltering the violent and blinding brewing of a dangerous twilight – I sense that this incoming force matched with the growing aggression of these shadows will prove nothing but fates for us all, yet still we pursue against these forces. But as I make my way back to my feet after witnessing fading’s from all around me, I now realize that those who remained still hold tight to the life lines that are yet to be erased, the life lines that are yet to be cut loose, the life lines – I know longer have.

The Equality of Light & Dark

The Equality of Light & Dark

We are drifting in and out of time yet again here in this place. We’re no strangers to it, and while this happens we continue to fight our battles, day by day – accepting each defeat that is given to us; retreating with the hopes that one day we will be able to walk away from this all forever – that one day this war will be nothing but a lesson for posterity. We have learned to know nothing but loss here, and while you begin to seek flames of legend we now strive to start our own, against the very shadows that burn whilst marching against us now.

These shadows have grown bold, even during these brighter hours that scream of an era of twilight, that loathe this age of shadows. And now that the sun is dimming across this grand scape, they too know of a nighter much darker than the ages have seen – for it is then that a bend within this reality must take place to force the fates that must be made to finally settle in. Everything is like a blur to me now, I can feel the pain, suffering, yet see the hope and a newer light every now and then as beacons call out to me. 

Though I know that all of this must take place again, for as the cycles make their way in again – only one trial remains. My acceptance towards such potential sinister outcomes has now hit me like the same tidal waves which swept away all I once knew and held close. And though I will fight these battles and continue my place in this war – I will soon no longer be binded to the chains that has been forced upon me, nor will I accept to be held down by the darkened forces whose power dwarfs us to greatly. For I am the fallen.

Prelude

Prelude

Such a strange time that we dwell in now, you now at the forefront of your own crusade and the pain in your heart pierces like it never has before, your very soul burning full of desires that the shadows have once stole, and now I seem to find myself in seemingly the same position. It is a grand place here, this scape seems to be of infinite and never ending land, though, the shadows that march here seem to span even further – how that is even possible I have yet to find out. But it is with all of this in mind that I prepare myself for the violence that is yet to ensue once again, and these skies have begun to turn of a shade much more sinister than the blackness of the shadows that burn across these lands now.

Now I can see the hope fleeting from your core, I can see the fear fading from your mind, whilst all at the same time I can see the acceptance of a Fate all too familiar beginning to make it’s way in. The fates that dwell throughout this place also speak of an end to me that is wrapped up with lies and cycles, a sinister course with a hidden promise of what I have been searching for – but who now can I even bare to trust? Those who once proved to be close have long since been devoured by the seas, and those who would rise from the ashes of dark nights and early trials have now started to fade, fade much faster than I am able to reach them.

I now walk within a path of shadows, a trial that spews nothing but vicious memories, echoes of failures, and trials much more difficult than any I have once faced before. It bestows upon me a time in Twilight where all I had once fled from is brought to the forefront, where all I once fled from has now joined the army in which we are actively fighting against now. It is this very path that seeks to bring about a night that seeks to bring an end to all things, a fate which I have resisted for so long. It longs to see my dreams fade, and nothing but the void to replace them.

A Burning Shadow, The Fading Soul

A Burning Shadow, The Fading Soul

These trying day’s are now on their last breaths, for as this war wages on within these grand scapes, so does a fading which has now begun to take place. For while it is still unknown to me and my nature, I know you knew more about it that I probably would have liked. You have retreated back to core and now soon you seek to vanish into the being you once more, as you reconnect with the longing in which you’ve suppressed for oh so long.

My weapons have now begun to dull here, for the various enemies I have slain throughout all of this time has not only taken a toll of my weakened and tired heart, but also on the very tools which were made to keep me safe.  And now, as we begun to march upon the shadows which have spread violent flames throughout this place, I now see that the violent rays beaming from skies above seek to start chaos of their own. Though we may be in this war and this age of shadows as a whole, I still am a lone traveler. I still seek stars that hide from the normal eye, and I still long to reach that bend, that drift that shall provide me with the answers that I seek. I still dream of dangerous cycles and past exiles which have shakened the very foundation I had once built myself on.

But now, a shift which feels oh so familiar, yet at the same time much more sinister, much more foreign has begun to settle in. It is a shift that speaks of burning shadows of the past that will start fires which will lead me to the end. It is a shift that knows how with every passing hour I wander, the further I wander from who we were meant to become. The failures of the past have now begun to latch to me, it is a plague of this place, and now I can hear the echoes once more calling out to me. And now, though there is acceptance in the Fates that very well beckon over me, there is also desperation, a last hope, for a line that will lead me to where I long to be.

The Path of Shadows

The Path of Shadows

Right now, I am seeking refuge, in a place and during a state that is so familiar of the past – that I cannot help but feel like this is nothing but the cycles work once again. But it is far from that, rather, I believe this is all work of none other than myself, this time around. I cannot physically nor mentally remove myself from the state of war that we are on in right now. It does not matter how far into my mind I may journey, it does not matter how high in perspective nor conciseness I may go – the war is always there. This war is much more sinister than the Dark Day’s of eras past, or the struggle and strife which swept through my entire being within Cavern walls. But at the same time, it is what I believe to be the final product of what was to follow the exile which followed grand and towering Castles.

I now, sit here in solitude. You have long since been gone, though even still I ponder about when I will seek to tamper with timelines once again to gain the answers that I seek. And now another, what was perhaps one of the last of lifelines the universe would provide to me, may be fading away quicker than I can return Though, a sacrifice it had to be. And so now, all is as it should be. All is all that it once was before, long before all of this mess occurred. Long before the Cavern Walls, long before new lights within vast plains, all before the land of Castles which cast exile upon me. All before it all. But even before this all, there was one desire which sought me out, one desire that still remains a constant, despite where I’ve been lead today, and that desire still burns – much like the shadows that wage war against us now during this age of shadows.

Time after time, I ponder if I am worthy of this flesh, or perhaps at one point in time this flesh was not worthy for me. Had it served me? Or since my creation has it held me bound to a time much more disastrous and more chaotic than anything I have ever known – binding like shackles to the earth. I know there are bends and shadows which I have not even begun to dream of reaching – for in order for me reach these heights would require a drifting much more dangerous than what had lead me off lines course in the distant past. In the past we hid from shadows, and now we embark upon them. The echoes while vigorous and dangerous in nature seem to be our only refuge – for when we are injured we look to them, for when we are down are stare upon them, for when we reach our ends we reverberate to them.  Though despite this all, both Shadows and Echoes have become enemies of mine alike, enemies I must now confront to win this war, enemies that may very well bring about my end.
