The Battle

In which I attempt to make limericks into something not entirely goofy

Where had Celariel gone,
With the Withering to the Forest now drawn,
Dread searched far and wide,
But her quest was denied,
The Princess still missing by dawn.

The Tatters ever did creep,
A new threat now seemed to seep,
And with Celariel away
entered a new type of decay
to bring the land eternal sleep.

The Forest was in quite the fret,
With no Princess and from all sides beset,
Though filled with worry,
for now Dread must hurry
To protect before they fell to this threat.

Dread gathered her kith and rode,
to where this danger now flowed,
to face this new beast
that threatened their peace,
though she felt her heart might implode.

She thought she would be alone,
Just her and the kith of her own,
But a stranger was there,
She knew not from where,
A knight from somewhere unknown.

Clad in silks and armor most fair
Helm hiding her inspired hair
The stranger readied her stance
tight grip on her lance
Her eyes with a determined glare.

Dread followed this new comrade’s lead
Astride her own ally steed
As they both turned to face
what they’d given chase
the tattered destruction now freed.

The pushed forward into the fray,
Lance and sword raised to strike and to slay
the beast bellowed and cried,
as the weapons pierced it inside,
but twas not enough to hold it at bay.

With a sickening twist of its hide
torn tendrils shot far and wide,
to pierce and to kill,
It’s scream oh so shrill,
as one found it’s mark in Dread’s side.

Silence, the screams seemed to quell,
A pause as she suddenly fell
a sharp intake of pain
no, the beast must be slain
She struggled up, but was engulfed in spell

The beast screeched as it drowned in light
It retreated, no will left to fight,
Her companion, unscathed,
In pure rays she was bathed
Her piercing green eyes burning bright.

Now those she did recognize
only one had such beautiful eyes
she stumbled forward and grasped
pressed their lips together unasked
A kiss for her Princess disguised.

Words and questions were left unsaid,
as they embraced, the Princess and Dread,
now to return, heads held high
beast defeated, defied
a bright new day to look forward ahead.

Excerpt
Spoiler
Now those she did recognize
only one had such beautiful eyes
she stumbled forward and grasped
pressed their lips together unasked
A kiss for her Princess disguised.

Woah, woah, woah, what happened to writing short poems?! This limerick is almost as long-winded as the fancy poetry that the Princess likes to recite! No WONDER she always gets such a twitterpated expression on her face when she hears that you're coming to visit!!!
