The Nazgul... - A Poem

Frodo desperately runs...
longing to be free of this adventure.
The Nazgul search for him...
and move in on him...
He stumbles....
He falls...
He has no choice...
The ring is put on...
No longer are there hooded figures, but ghostly lords....
they grasp at him with their skeleton-like hands...
trying to grab the ring...
His ring...
He moves back...
A raging eye of fire flares behind them...
Whispers are heard...
Trying to lure him to surrender...
He is watched...
He feels it...
an evil glare that poisons his mind with temptation...
He is punctured sharply in the arm...
A white hot pain emerges and flows through his blood...
He cries out in pain...
He wants to give up....
Wants to give in....
But the ring is taken off and the eye is no more...
Pippin and Merry are calling...
Sam is at his side...
He weeps, sobbing for help...
But they are heard from far away...
He can only hear the pain...
Whispers of evil tempt him...
He resists...
Pain shoots through....
He screams....
He calls....
Someone is carrying him...
He sees Strider anxiously watching him...
Waiting....
but for what?
A leaf is crumbled over his arm.
he has found some hope.
A tiny amount of warmth comes to him...
it soon wears off and evil is back.
Shrieks are heard closer...
They call for him, but a new figure is seen...
An tall, slender elf smiles...
A melody is heard...
The song of love...
He hears hope...
He hears life...
He hears suffering...
The Nazgul chase again...
They want him...
They call for him...
They reach for him...
The elf takes him on horseback...
Swiftly galloping on his steed....
A river is seen....
The elf stops.
Silence.
The Nazgul stop.
The elf dares them to cross the river...
They move forward...
The elf speaks to the river...
The river listens...
The river obeys...
The spirit of the river is drawn...
and the Nazgul are no more...
Frodo can hear elvish voices...
healing him...
and the evil is gone...
He is warm and the frozen touch in his arm is thawed...
Light gently shines upon him and he dreams....
Of Elves...
Of the Shire...
Of Life.....
