Fallen Hero

I used a little from both the book and movie so it's a little combination, and I do realize that I didn't write about every miniscule seconds, so please don't be too harsh.<br /> <br /> ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~<br /> <br /> I know naught what happened, what caused sanity to flee.<br /> Its power was so strong; sickening was Its glee.<br /> So I do the only thing I can and save Pip and Merry.<br /> The orcs are rushing in, I really musn't tarry!<br /> <br /> I blow my horn with all my might,<br /> But to my woe, more orcs come to fight.<br /> I hope the others fare better as the first arrow sings.<br /> I feel a blinding pain from not one, but three of those things.<br /> <br /> I shudder now; the little ones are taken.<br /> Death comes close. Its cold leaves me shaken.<br /> I deserve to die alone, and yet I selfishly hope someone will come.<br /> He pull his bow back, yet I don't hear its inevitable, angry thrum.<br /> <br /> Instead I hear the clang of Anduril.<br /> Merciless in its strike, enough to make my head reel.<br /> I crawl backwards against a tree.<br /> I try not to despair as I tug an arrow free.<br /> <br /> I know Death is very near. Alas, my horn is cloven in two.<br /> Aragorn has won the fight; I'm glad I lived to see that through.<br /> &quot;They took the little ones,&quot; I say; and I must know<br /> What my madness has done: &quot;Frodo, where is Frodo?&quot;<br /> <br /> &quot;Be still,&quot; he replies as he tries to pull out an arrow.<br /> Alas, darkness now clouds my vision. Soon, I know I will go.<br /> His face darkens further as my vision fades.<br /> I have moments left; I grab for my faithful blade.<br /> <br /> I say farewell to my Brother and King<br /> As I welcome what Death's embrace shall bring. <br />
