Tale of the Tongues(Farewell Ning Edition) - By Capraicorn

Aldu-Ning's programming,

it did ruin our posts.

Scared off, the admins,

and frightened, the hosts.

Ben ran, and Tae cowered,

Sotek howled, and Malign whined.

We all, got mad,

'til a new site, we did find.

Then came, the move,

we all agreed with a nod.

Inevitable, as winter,

or a chapter of Straag Rod.

Then all heard, the music,

of Aldu-Ning's… Continue

One last time
My fingers outline
The stories told in the face
Of my mind's divine

Under palms I read history
Through your eyes we are glassed
Our lives lived in seconds
Through the pulse of our past

Though sewn at the soul
Padomay picks at the threads
Your touch, my last sense
Goodbye, my last breath

The End of All Things

We'll meet again, you and I,

Before we are reborn,

When black wings blot the sky

And we're called by Valour's Horn.…

Dark, Light, Dark

Cycles are endless and unbroken.


Such are many things.


From caterpillar to moth,


From day to night,


From Dark to Light,


The world is destined to…

Song of Sanguine - A Swordsassin's Oath

Sing to me Blade.

Bid me to Kill.

Beg me for Blood.

And Feed you I will.

The Blade is Alive.

It Hungers and Breathes.

It Hungers for Blood.

And for Blood it Unsheathes.

Sing to me Blade.

Bid me to Kill.

Beg me for Blood.

And Feed you I will.

The Blade is a Creature.

Flesh Born from the Earth.

And with Flesh does it Breed.

And 'tis… Continue

Empty Land, Emptying Soul

Sequel to The Man

Soul bound in chains,

My body my bane.


I don’t want this,

Only a taste of bliss,

Stare into the…

It means living such that others can say they were glad to fight by you're side.

To face your enemies head on, rather than sneaking, and whispers as you hide.

The gutter rats, in their halls of mire.

Not for honor, but for gold, is their fight of desire.

For others to raise their shield in defense.

To protect you from harm, in those battles intense.

To raise their swords, for the honor of your name.

To meet blood for… Continue

Midnight Sun

Flock to worship at the altar 

Of bones picked dry

By the hands of man 

Who opened the veins to bathe us in blood of kin

In the name of sin

The almighty I

Repeat our fate of nuclear fire

When we consume ourselves

For fleeting power

You held our fate without a clue

Held the broken reflections of self to be true

Now you are but scraps

And we pick through you too

Humanity is…

Mammoth Cheese

C: "Try it, just a mouthful."

T: "It smells like rancid meat."

C: "I'm sure the taste is not all bad."

T: "Well I'm sure it tastes like feet!"

C: "Don't be so picky!"

T: "Don't be so bland."

C: "I have excellent taste!"

T: "You'd eat dry sand!"

C: "Look, it's a small taste, just try it."

T: "I'm not eating cheese made by giants!"

C: "It's natural and tasty, and good for you… Continue

The Sobs of Old Soldiers


We Die a little Every Day

We watch ourselves Wash Away

We bleed,…

Arkay's Only Answer

Why do mortals have to die?

Because with heavy hearts they sigh

And in their filth they deign to lie

Or build to places far up high;

That is why they have to die.

They bring death upon themselves,

Grabbing it, as if from shelves,

Put it on walls in personal hells

With every story the old man tells.

The heavy heart of loss and pain

That shall never see it's love again,

It has nothing left to gain,

Except to sit and watch the… Continue

The Priest

So we drift on solar winds of time,

haunted victims of an intolerable crime

Into a future unknown and uncertain,

We do our best to pull back the curtain

Of fate which shrouds your vision and mine,

Before us each a mountain to climb

Laughing at destiny with feigned derision,

Doomed to repeat the worst decision.

The end is coming I think for me,

Like an answer to a heartfelt plea

To that final day with longing I…

Shadows Stay

Echoes resound throughout every hall.


Reflections fade, but not fast enough.


My house is so empty,


Whiterun is so empty,


Skyrim is so empty.


We fought off…

The Cage

A drag of a cigarette ‘cross the pain an’ wound,


I sit here wonderin’ what’ll happen.


The Wasteland…


I’m safe from raiders and invaders in here.


My own vault, nothing to…

Season Unending

Corpses lay scattered like autumn leaves,

As if blown from a tree in a cold winter's breeze.

Summer is a memory now lost in fall's freeze,

And spring seems as hopeless as man's futile pleas.

This is the Season Unending and mankind's disease,

And we stand at the vanguard with no words to appease.

I know the futility of our useless deeds,

Yet I continue to speak with growing unease.

Our actions are deafening and drown out the sound,

Of words…

All I see are echoes,

All I hear are reflections.


Light may shine, but it


Misses me.


Divines might bless, but they

Steel and Bone

Blood and honor,

to both of which you'll give due.

With rage and metal,

show our might to chosen few.

Steel and bone,

use one to crush the other.

With skill taught from your father,

slay him with steel forged by your mother.

Gore and glory,

these are the trophies gained in war.

Take only one from our foes,

and… Continue

Last Goodbye

Father, forebear, you hold our lantern's light

When son is risen and moon is drowning 

Our saint endures one last worldly plight
The journey is finite, firmly grounding
Heart and mind, deafen death to the pounding
The gods will wait for your final sunrise…

Chase, Chase

paws to ground, snout to sky

scent cross past, deer nearby.

chase, chase, play the game

sword aside, clothes the same.

earth, air, water, spray

follow markers straight to prey.

rip, tear, flesh to teeth

meal was fast, now quick and brief.


next, a man, but not like me

hears no wrong, to blind to see.

chase, chase, play the hunt

ram his chest, smash his front.

the meats he holds, I will not…

Vile Intent

Grand desires near,

hopeful for future, desired.

To gain untold power, wealth,

or even the love of those admired.

All these things, within your reach,

So close, just pay the toll.

Your wildest wish, just ask it,

but pay hefty price, your soul.

So paltry a thing, unneeded,

what possibly would you want it for.

You don't use it,… Continue
