Lament of Betrayal

Post by Melnerag on Wed May 30, 2012 3:17 pm

A short 'song' Gwen wrote while sitting in jail after Aldric betrayed the Chapter and framed them for most heinous crimes (true story!) Nowhere else to put it. So suffer Aldric, your name will be forever synonimous with OATHBREAKER! *contacts the Chapter Linguistics Department to implement a new noun: an aldric, a new verb: to pull an aldric and a new adjective: like aldric.*

O Light, receive my tears,
For I have little else to give.
My soul is seized by dread,
And my heart bleeds within my chest.

I shed my tears,
For I have little else to give.
When a brother’s dagger,
Sought out my back at night,
What remains in me,
save the warmth of Light?

Let my tears wash away his sins,
Resurrect his oath from ashes,
Cleanse his bloody hands,
For my tears are all I have to give.

Your mercy alone,
Can uplift me from gloom,
Brought about by a heart,
Pierced by an oathbreaker’s blade.

Liked the first verse but the rest make it seem like you are not going to repent and abandon Anethion at all!

A religious character doesn't abandon faith at the first sign of trouble.
Spoiler:

*deals the pokercards*
*checks his cards to find a seven-two from different kind*
"Screw you Light! I'm going Shadow."

When willing to face death and horrors, staring them in the eye in the name of your religion.. then betrayal may be a hard blow to deal with but it'll take more to change religion. We're not a bunch of DK's who go "boohoo in tears" and run off to the enemy after their leader made them attack something that presented a bit of a challenge. Razz

But yea, when you are a member of an evil cult Holy Order whom every reasonable man hellbound sinner hates, and there are a lot of those, and only understanding you find is from your brothers and sisters....then betrayal sucks!

JP Why! You made the list! XD

I only wanted Anethionean faith to waver so it can be replaced with the Lexadins teachings! Anethioneans will be saved and will pay for Lexys ticket to the here after!
