Mor's Lament for Alessia

  • I see you still upon your star-patterned path

    A banner ever-burning

    On snow-dusted sighs I hear your laugh

     

    From Aetherius adjourning.

     

    You're like Secunda's light on my nose hoop here

    Unobtrusively allusive

    I withdraw more every passing year

     

    Under summer's sun, reclusive.

     

    If I could remake you from your stars

    Or form you of the moons

    To return to Nirn that joy of ours

     

    Would I soar so high so soon?

     

    To feel your breath just one last time

    Or taste you on my tongue

    For my Paravant, resplendent, fine

     

    Would I render every song unsung?

     

    To pieces I would smash my mail

    Or gore the world upon my horns

    To bear you aloft in blizzard or gale

     

    I would fly until life's final morn.

    This makes you wonder if Bethesda had kept a smut stash of Mor x Alessia hidden away from us. I don't mind a bit of ero content, even if it's just a tease like The Real Barenziah (Daggerfall Edition). :P


    @Karver So wait, does that me...  more

    So, how long until you just start writing a bit of erotic fiction starting Mor and Allesia? :P I don't read many poems Phil but you said Mor so, you know, I had to read it. I always do like your poems when I read them Phil, just gotta read em more often :)

    "taste you on my tongue" eh? ;) 
    Anyway, vivid as always, Phil. As always when you're writing about your favourite triangle. Maybe the Bull will see his Al-Esh once again. :)

        Most of these days I feel like "What is romance without a bit of necromany" is more accurate. (5/5 Windhelm's Butchers agree.) xD

          haha, karve, that made me snort, I laughed so hard. 


          Great poem, Phil. Those three are easily my favorites.
