Walking down a pathless road, I prepare to face Her at last.
Gravel scratching my feet; to the winds, my cares are cast.
Fog in front of me thickens, skies above me change to gray
No silver lining to comfort me as I walk into the fray.
Silence is screaming within my path.
And the shadows tell me of foreboding wrath.
The time comes near; I can feel it soon
As I walk along my journey without the silver moon.
Screaming deafens me, but it’s not in my head.
It’s above in the sky that has been painted with lead.
Demons and devils and monsters take flight,
But not one is the One that I have to fight.
I take cover in the ruins, but they fail to hide
A creature above looks down and cries.
“You!” She screams then dives down at me.
I jump and I evade, but I cannot flee.
The fiend lands down so I can see Her face
And I recognize the one I took so long to trace.
Her empty eyes are still haunting and deep
Like a taunting abyss, daring you to leap.
Her skin is pale, but is nothing like the snow.
It is more like the ashes that showed only woe.
Her wings are as big as storm cloud and as ominous as well.
Her fingers were blades forged only in Hell.
Her clothes were a peasant girl’s, tattered and torn.
A slave to the flesh, this demon had been born.
I unsheathe my blade and I spread my silver wings
Like the lining whose song will never again sing.
“See who I am, ” She taunts. “Remember the pain.
You will never be good and your evil will remain.”
I smack Her in the cheek and then taunt Her into a chase
Where She follows upwards toward the stars. Towards space.
“You’re weak, ” She hisses. “You’re broken and more.”
“Maybe so, ” I reply, “but I can still soar.
“I can fight back at you and I will be fixed.
And you will soon exist no more. You will be nixed.”
She slices at my wrist and my blade begins to fall.
“What now?” She mocks. “Without your sword, you will give up all.”
Her haunting voice begins to echo in my head.
If I don’t fight back, I will surely be dead.
The wind rushing past me tries to drown Her out,
But She is still near me as Her voice begins to shout.
“You can never beat me! I’ll always be you!
You’ve reached the end! Your time is through!”
Nearer and nearer, the hilt reaches my hand
As I fall nearer and nearer towards the land.
You can never beat me, her words echo inside.
“This day will be remembered as the day your Light side died!”
I am the Light, I think. I’m not weak at all.
You are the Darkness, and I will make you fall.
Closer and closer come the earth and the blade.
I’m stronger than her. I’m not the one to fade!
A familiar sensation now has reached my hand.
The time has come for me to take my stand.
A split moment’s pause is all the time I need
Before my muscles scream as they execute the deed.
I open my eyes and see the streets, still gray.
My feet hover over gravel and I know that I’m okay.
My gaze soon follows when my arms leads on.
And I see that the Darkness I fought is now gone.
The jagged blade struck true, though not all the way.
It was halfway through her neck, but it was enough to slay.
Her abysmal eyes now burn as her body turns to ash.
And now no more will my Light and my Darkness clash.
