In a massive arc
that seemed to encompass…

all that she was
all that she had lost
all the universe had ever known of her
since the first time her soul was born

her blade carved a deadly path through the air

its edge trailed light like the tail of a comet
leaving an after-image
in my field of vision

heaving a war cry
into the din of battle
her weapon cleaved the crown
from a demon’s head

showering bright orange sparks
into the night air
to rain down like falling stars

with watering eyes
and a weeping heart
she summoned
and ember of hope
from the blood soaked ground
at her feet

and for once in her life…


…was afraid

…of her
