Do You Not Know?

  - Lalaith

Do you not know?

You opened my eyes
You opened my heart
You opened my cage

In your eyes
The Sheildmaiden of Rohan
In your eyes
A Worthy Destiny

Have you not Seen?

Have I not looked upon you
My Heart in my eyes
Hoping
Waiting
for the moment it would be
mirrored in yours

But it is no Sheildmaiden
Reflected in your eyes

The icy grip of panic
clutches my heart
steals my breath
The ache of anguish echoes
in the bitter cold of my being

One look
has frozen my heart
Nevermore will it
burn in love

My heart
Followed you into life
Now it
Follows you into death


I have loved him
and I despair
