Vengeance pumps through the hand
That grips my blade. Anger powers
The pistol in my other hand.
My face is masked by death and darkness.

I have seen a ruler have her breath stolen from her,
But did not wield the sword that took it.
But still, that sword was thrust into my hand,
And a killer I became.

Time passed, and quickly,
Life in the darkness gave me power.
I am seen, but a click of my fingers,
and I have disappeared to some few metres away.
Time and space is mine to command,
As I become one with the plague-rats,
Silent. Deadly. Unseen.

I am the dishonoured bodyguard,
The supernatural assassin,
The unsung hero of the city of whalers.
My duty is to bring death from the shadows
In the name of justice…

My muse is like an excitable dog. It catches sight of totally random things and starts yapping and running around and wagging its tail and WILL NOT STOP until I write a poem about it.My poetry is sometimes based on personal experience and sometimes on other things. Aside from that, I enjoy video games (My favourite game series is Mass Effect) and the popular television show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
