The Unconquered Champion

My heart aches.

My heart breaks,

yet no tears do come.

Hidden deep they stay,

not yet called forth

from my soul of a dungeon.


My head swims.

No reason wins,

I don't understand

the incentive for my path.

What I do, what I've done,

tangled in my mind's wasteland.


My fears race.

My fears chase,

yet my hand stays,

my demeanor still unbroken,

though inside I rage.

No sanity in this haze.


My time does dwindle.

The days do swindle.

I hasten to frost

the uprising panic in me

as the dimension mockingly laughs,

unrealized potential forever lost.


My doubt bites.

My doubt fights,

yet my silent courage urges on,

peeping from a place

it's existence once unknown.

Never-ending battle dawn.


My wishes absurd.

The dream a flightless bird.

I childishly indulge without sever

the unconquered champion.

What they called love,

flees from all mortal endeavors.


But my heart will heal,

my head will mend,

my fears subside,

my doubt will fade,

my wishes forgotten…

yet time will never slow.

Mercurial._.Unicorn: The old style of writing is beyond good for today's modern writing styles.I loved the plot and the characters and I loved the way the character development was done.

Aki Trilee: This is one of the best books I've ever read. The author tells a story about a girl who goes through so much stress but able to find true love. Beautifully written, very emotional and romantic. I ended up staying up until three in the morning so I could keep reading. FLAWLESS!

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

aoifecollopy22: I loved how the author had the conflict come back later in the story. Also how they passed time without going over anything. That really helped move the story along. This kept my up for a few hours. YOU SHOULD READ THIS
