A Flash Of Blades

on February 7, 2012


The sword floats in the air,
Its silvery blade gleaming.


The razor-sharp edge glistens
As it slices through the air,
Missing its mark by inches.


The ornate handle shows elegance,
Reflecting the weapon it adorns.


The clang of metal meeting metal
Rings like a toll of the Grim Reaper
At the end of days.


Scratches and dents adorn the steel,
Remnants of battles long past.


Crimson red liquid runs down its length
As it finally reaches its mark,
And leeches life from its victim.
