|A long forgotten ride
They galloped side by side
Fleeing through shadows and mist
Trying hard to avoid the graveyard list
A struggle for love and life
A love that spanned peace and strife
Born by hearts and bound by chains
Yet the darkness could not quench their flames
An ocean, a mountain, and a sea
Kept the two from being free
They rode where desperation led,
Pursued by the knowledge of what they fled
A roiling darkness, like a shroud,
Hide what was within, gaining ground.
Shining eyes and pointed claws
Silva dripping from crimson maws
A King, proud and full of spite,
Sought to keep the lovers apart that night
A daughter, fair, he had to lose
Of her, from the dark hoard, he wished news
Forgotten is the end
Forgotten is the legend, never penned
Forgotten is the question never answered and never asked
Forgotten is the love that couldn’t be masked
