"Altar of Shadows"

Inspired by items on my pc desk. Thanks for reading.

"Altar of Shadows"

Near the highest peak yet far away from the sun
Are the steps of the king's lair to which we must run
Where no grass grows plentiful nor tree grows tall
Toward the Altar of Shadows we crawl

An elder spoke to us in parables so wise
But the words he was speaking were strangely in disguise
We'd not know their meaning until it was time for us to know
But then we would have wisdom where to go

A cavern that we had to pass was home to a beast
Shining silver, plated body wielding mindthoughts to each
That plotted his ruin guided by the seer's mystic curse
He tried to bury our thoughts in distortion perverse

The sky flashed from red to green to gray as we climbed higher
Exchanging words with the king our utmost desire
The beast reached it's talons and tried to scalp us from the ground
A well placed sword between its' armor, it sank down

Rays streaked through the darkness leading to the top
Guiding us through with recharged hearts not willing to stop
A sphere of purity the portal to what was within
The king brought us together to begin

The Altar of Shadows is where the slate mists roll
The king desires freedom, desiring to see the glow
Of sunstreaked daylight--something hidded so many years
The Altar of Shadows holds his tears
The Altar of Shadows holds his tears
And together we will find a way to take away his fear

Near the highest peak yet far away from the sun
Are the steps of the king's lair to which we have run
Where no grass grows plentiful nor tree grows tall
To the Altar of Shadows we no longer crawl
As the Altar of Shadows starts to fall
