Loveless

on

It’s been a long time but it still feels like I was gone just yesterday.

Nevertheless, I have something to share with you guys. Something that I have loved for a long time. Something that is not just a work in a game but also a wonderful piece of writing. It’s simple and elegant.

The poem is from a game called Final Fantasy VII – Crisis Core. It’s a very old game and I am sure many of you must know about this but still I would like to share this work. Piece by piece. Act by act. And I hope that you too immerse and enjoy in the beauty of these words as I have.

Loveless 

Prologue :

When the war of the beasts brings about the world’s end

The goddess descends from the sky

Wings of light and dark spread afar

She guides us to bliss, her gift everlasting.

Act I :

Infinite in mystery is the gift of the goddess

We seek it thus, and take to the sky

Ripples form on the water’s surface

The wandering soul knows no rest.

Act II :

There is no hate, only joy

For you are beloved by the goddess

Hero of the dawn, Healer of worlds

~~~

Dreams of the morrow hath the shattered soul

Pride is lost

Wings stripped away, the end is nigh

Act III :

My friend, do you fly away now?

To a world that abhors you and I?

All that awaits you is a somber morrow

No matter where the winds may blow

~~~

My friend, your desire

Is the bringer of life, the gift of the goddess

~~~

Even if the morrow is barren of promises

Nothing shall forestall my return

Act IV :

My friend, the fates are cruel

There are no dreams, no honor remains

The arrow has left the bow of the goddess

~~~

My soul, corrupted by vengeance

Hath endured torment, to find the end of the journey

In my own salvation

And your eternal slumber

~~~

Legend shall speak

Of sacrifice at world’s end

The wind sails over the water’s surface

Quietly, but surely

Act V :

Even if the morrow is barren of promises

Nothing shall forestall my return

To become the dew that quenches the land

To spare the sands, the seas, the skies

I offer thee this silent sacrifice.

So, this is “Loveless” from the game Final Fantasy VII – Crisis Core. It’s just a small poem I wanted to share. All thanks to the ‘Genesis’ … hehe …
