Twin Furies

Had a character get mugged in Divinity’s Reach! It was my bard! So what does she do? Write a song about it, naturally! Enjoy~

Twin Furies

A voice breaks into my thought,
A greeting warm, with purpose wrought
Though I can’t feel it upon the weight
Of words offered to kindly bait

This way, come this way
Follow Dance where moonlight plays
See the quiet, peaceful view
We offer you, we offer you

Red waves on palest skin
A mask to hide the thoughts within
A hood drawn low o’er a pretty face
And who could know how small the space

It might take for winds to change
For fate to turn and hearts find strange
What once seemed simple grows complex
And here they dance and there they vex

Come and sit right here my friend
They gesture there, they gesture then
And towers standing tall and proud
Are bait enough as I kneel down.

Twin furies dance in the night
Setting awry what once was right
Making friendly while meaning to
Find a way to get to you

Twas the view that kept my gaze
As neck and hair a pistol grazed
And then words cut into me
As quite the fool I turned out to be

Twin furies dance in the night
Setting awry what once was right
Making friendly while meaning to
Find a way to get to you

All you value, give to us
Come now dear, how could you trust
In perfect strangers beneath the moon?
You shouldn’t follow our like so soon!

Glint of moonlight on silver shaft
The pistol’s end so close, so fast!
And how’d I get here so unaware?
It wasn’t just, nor was it fair.

Lively furies hid in the night
Your weapons gleam by firelight!
And who would notice from far away
The curves and swirls that dip and sway

In silver barrels leveled close
And grips of ivory missed by most?
And the strange block of the others’ pair?
And their bare skin, it was so fair

Lively furies hid in the night
Your weapons gleam by firelight!
And who would notice from far away
The curves and swirls that dip and sway

As lithe, spry forms work their trade
And not a soul is near to aid
A fly caught within the spiders’ web
Built so cleanly where streets did ebb?

And yet I found on that dark night
Not all was lost without the light
For patience given and patience won
My life’s work was not undone

Mercy, Furies, upon our souls
For each, I’m sure, has played the roles
Life is not wont to reward
No matter that we can’t afford

Another path we might prefer
But choices made, some lines do blur
So thank you, furies of the night
Who did not destroy this writer’s light

I’ll sing of you where e’er I go
That others here, might hear and know
Where there is danger, kindness lives too
A lesson learned because… of you

((Don’t forget, Divinity’s Reach is the name of a city in Guild Wars 2 and does not belong to me! :p))
