(Amberous Light) – Trimeric

by Bastet

in a cavern an amberous light
shimmering ghostly shades – set off the night
chilling whispers echo all around
reminding me of lives long gone

shimmering ghostly shades – set off the night
the cold dank cavern came alive again
as here a battle rages and men meet their death

chilling whispers echo all around
lamenting the shortness of life and love
all wasted for a king’s avidity and his “noble”  cause

reminding me of lives long gone
this place lies hidden – haunted by useless war
but no noble king or sultan ever shudders – now or then
