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

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.

The Coming Flames

To all of us who continue to roam these great and vast scapes – we know not of why the ever-so fading, yet at the same time, violent light which rages on within these skies, now piercing these lands. These skies in and of themselves have become the very epitome of this age that has swept over us all, quietly and quickly. Now, I am no fool. I can see whilst you rest and seek to return to what you once were, you crave this very violent light that is now jeopardizing the path that I tread. A light that for some time, has been so forbidden here, until we stopped running, until we began fighting. Now, I am not going to sit here and begin preaching of prophecies and secrets of what has been said to come, but I do know that the skies above to not lie, and the shadows within have been screaming truths that we are all much to ashamed to admit to.

It is with this very dangerous state of cognitive dissonance, that this age was brought about all in the first place; and now, here you are reaching out for a lifeline that has not yet even been extended, here you are thinking flickering thoughts of flares and embers leading to something much more sinister, something much more great, but sinister. I know just like before, when the fates had begun to first settle in – the void began to find itself within you, it began to plant it’s seeds quietly, without you knowing. And now, since the day’s of the trials, that parenting void has vanished, been erased by the remaining light of hope that resides within you, that light of hope that has begun to fade once more. What you feel now is nothing more than the very void that has been present ever since the fall, yet a multiplied void, a void partnered with echoes and shadows of darker timelines.

Now as you make your way back to the base of who you are, and as you continue from there to start embers in hopes of fulfilling these long lost aspirations, know that you must tame this great force you seek to withhold, for otherwise it will surely tame you, bending you to it’s will. Know that as these skies become more and more sinister with each passing day, that it is all the signs one could wish for, when it comes to signaling the end. For as the fates begin extending their reach closer to these grounds, you begin to work faster, to extend what life you may have left to you, before a much darker night begins to settle in.

Intro the Trilogy

During these times of conflict and war I have felt the need to take cover, the need to step away from this battlefield, the need to continue to traverse while at the same time fighting the great fight that stands before me now. The war of trials that has now since unfolded across these grand scapes, is a war on many fronts. It’s giant hand has seized control of much I have yet to know, and the few things that I still dream of till this day. The whispers speak words of truth when they say that the end is here, when they say this will all be over soon – however they are never at will to tell when it shall all take place.

The violent light that I remember so clearly that once pierced across plains, spilling out a path to a more promising land, a more grander land, a land of Castles; has now seemingly began to make it’s return. Although, it is different now, it is more mature in it’s violence, it’s strikes more organized, and the shadows it leaves behind more sinister than they have ever been. For I have said it before with the intent to make it clear – this is the age of shadows, and escaping it I cannot do. But the journey that takes place now is not one of denying the darkness and troubles that are rapidly speeding towards my way, but instead a journey of what will take place when these forces clash with me, when a morphing and unfolding in the sky begins once again and reminds of a fate I still cannot shake.

I know not of your true intentions while you seek to start this fire, with the hopes of it to burn ever so brightly. I know you stand to close whilst you try to ignite the flame, ignorant of what pain it can bring, while at the same time what immense light it can provide to light the darkened path that we all fear to walk, the path that ultimately keeps us all at bay, keeps us wondering what in fact would truly happen if one day all of these memories just went away. For now, instead of cherishing the memories the coming of this light wishes for me to remember, I have instead begun to remember the secrets and whispers these winds are telling me, with hopes that I can find what I have been searching for – before this time runs out.
