fantasy contest

an ancient city plague by disease

the fields painted by fallen knights

skeletons in armour coved in debri

with a cold fog and lack of moonlight

i turn to leave this place of mystery

but the trail that lured me in has disappeared from my eyesight

what was once a trail of dirt and fallen leaves

is now a field of shining armour exposed to the moonlight

as the cold air licks at my skin i hear a voice calling me as faint as the breeze

it leads me to a scroll that tells of an accent foresight

that of a young boy that will one night find a city of deceased and the way in will be closed for eternity

and when the night sky has passed out shall come the sunlight

for today is the day that boy will die for certainty

    Hello Peter, I see you are Australian, well I live in Australia too, in the city of Campbelltown NSW, but I am actually British, I liked the setting for your poem and your storytelling is excellent, but watch your spelling as it is letting your quality down, please proof read your work for errors, but the rest is fine, all the best. John
