Blade Of Doom

Dreams Of Sanity

A flashing blade of ancient times

my hands were clenched around its heel

an evil wizard's spell would leed

my life to bitter endless nights

For as it was cursed to drink the blood

of any human living thing

for once a day or even more -

or it would slay the keeper dead

So I was bound to keep clear of those

I loved for I could never know

when the blade returns to life

and guide my hands to harm a friend

The last words I tell to warn you now

sre not to touch the blade

so it can never drown the blood

from any living man

The fights were many that I won

but never did I know

Whom my way might cross again

and whom I'll lose by sword
