Blade (acrostic)

by Ben Pickard   Jul 7, 2016


Be gone, or watch the easy
Levitation of my sword hover
Above your head that clings,
Despairingly, to a neck that is
Evanescent in its loyalty to it.

    Very cool write, I agree with Stephen, very Game of Thrones, which I love btw. The visuals were really well done.
