Within The Dark Confines of My Heart

by Kurai Hitokiri

Disclaimer: I do not own the Legend of Zelda, Nintendo, or any of these characters.

Author's Note: This is simply a poem that I thought up while thinking of my past. It is basically Link and Dark Link's relationship, but I think that it sucks... Anyway, could you please review if you disagree with my opinion?

Within the innermost shadows of my soul you were there

I couldn't see you or feel your presence…

But somehow, you were there, a fledgling

When I was a child sleeping within my bed

You came out and played with my abused person

You haunted my nightmares as an unknown enemy

When I grew, I saw you by my side holding my sword

Somehow I held you within my heart and bound you with chains

It was your just reward for plaguing me like a pestilence

Still, whenever I looked at my reflection, I didn't see myself

I saw you grinning maliciously and mouthing your revenge

It was a foreshadowing of my fate

I think that by the time I was an adult you had forgiven me

When I made my first kill, I couldn't look at the blood upon my hands

You came out and caressed me in your shadowy embrace

Whispering sweet nothings to me

At the end you were by my side…

You held my bloodstained hand as tears of darkness dripped from your very eyes

They fell thickly to the ground and transformed to blood

As my end came, you simply smiled

"I'll always be in the confines of your heart."
