Disclaimer: It all belongs to Tolkien. I just like to walk in his world.
My heart has been cold these ages past. We followed my lord in taking that dreadful oath. In horror we arrived on blood-stained quays as the Swan-ships departed. In anger we journeyed North on that long, arduous march. I hate the ice now, although I have never seen its like again. Flesh cleaved to metal, leather stiffened to iron, eyes froze.
And I lost you.
Sometimes I climb the mountains in winter; I lift my face to drifting snowflakes and remember the chill of our last kiss, your freezing lips on mine; before my hot tears wash them away.
