Whilst roaming under starry skies amidst the barren Country side
twas there that I came face to face with a mountain
Its scowl was cold and shimmering
with plateau; Golden Glimmering
And in that moment I resolved to Climb

I bore into its silhouette
Traversing to the top
What riches lay beyond
I did not know

There were none I could attain
And so I Remained
There at the throat of the world

Figures in the mist Dance behind the foreign rocks
Strewn to and fro, lain by glacial springs
I stoked a fire in fallen trees, to keep the spirits back
Contemplative of what that night would bring

Divine Intervention
I had not been shown
No gods of men Above
and none below

With no comfort less the fire set beside me
my soul lingered on
There at the throat of the world

Awoken by the stench of smolder
The glow it licked my face
The embers danced from branch to branch
as the darkness melts away
Standing on the edge of oblivion
as I peered into the brink
To my world am an apparition
In a place were nothing links

And So I cast my story to the wind
In hope that it does not fall upon deaf ears
Though that night I felt the Darkness Set upon me

To this day I remain
There at the throat of the world
