He left me burning with disease
That spells and potions cannot heal,
And in my life there was a void
No other man could ever fill.
I mourn my youth and curse the day
He poisoned me with a tender kiss,
Yet I don’t wish my wounds away,
For it’s the pain that brings me bliss.
I wish my foe was flesh and blood,
A lovely face that I could hate;
A mortal rival I would thwart,
But how can I compete with Fate?
Frail human voice cannot defeat
The brutal songs of turquoise sea;
Forever lady of his heart,
Britannia stole my love from me.
Time’s turned my hair to ashen silk,
My day has faded, so has morn.
But in the twilight of my life,
I can’t cease praying for his return.

Dasha, I love this poem. Who is a poet? You?
Yes I wrote it about 10 years ago. I usually find creative writing very hard and laborious, but I wrote this poem in about a day and it came to me very easily, for some reason.
This is actually quite touching. I never experienced this story in the game as I always played a female Avatar, but the themes are rather universal.
