Lord of War!

Legions of humans,
And beasts of war,
Engaged in battles,
My mind they enthrall!

Swords clanging loud,
Amid showers of sparks,
Cudgels and axes,
Piercing cries at large!

My laughter rages loud,
Across the battle torn skies,
Bolts of Lightning,
Let loose from my hands!

The intent to kill,
And the thirst for blood,
Is a human trait,
Thats hard to ignore!

I fulfill needs,
Fiddle with causes,
Provide the means,
For destruction of races!

Peace makes me restless,
Tranquility makes me worry,
Moans of the wounded,
Are like a soulful melody!

Devastation, my food,
Annihilation, my wine,
Raise your goblet, get down on your knees,
Behold the Lord of War, "Azaraeth" they call me!

Good and Bad, Right and Wrong are a part of every person. Here I attempt to visualize wat It wld b lik to b the Lod of War! To see the world out of the eyes of an entity whose sole muse and passion is destruction! Just another perspective!

  3. Compelling...I could imagine him looking down upon mere mortals watching his devious motives gaining form.. He can see the mortal beings fall prey to his ideas which he plants. He gives them strength to fight each other. Which they use to destroy each other. If they would use the forte to fight him, they will no destruction...

    It is in his blood or what ever non-mortals have flowing..It is in his nature and this is what feeds him

    To Azaraeth, to force, to power!!!
