    Darkness Where Now Poe And Raven Reside,
    (Part Six) - Of Six Total


    Raven summoned up beasts from far below
    Sent them into all the now empty cells
    This was Poe's great genius, done just for show
    His pen, had set Raven under his spell.
    Poe brought gate-guards down from upper tiers
    Next ordered open, those levels cell doors
    Thus gave a chance to those fleeing with fear
    For Raven's might, he chose not to ignore!

    Poe saw his clever plan was going well
    An escape map he gave to Annabel
    Yet again his magic pen cast a spell
    And into a deep pit Raven then fell.
    Alas! He forgot dogs guarding last gate
    Those eight and each one as big as a horse
    Thinking and writing, he then challenged Fate
    By verse magic, set a new escape course.

    Poe ran with Hero and his Annabel
    Through secret corridor only he knew
    Freedom almost there, Annabel then fell
    For Raven woke, broke binding chains into.
    Up from that deep dark pit in angry flight
    Fury's swell, in devilish evil chest
    Raven cried out, Dark Lord resume my might
    I live in dark vengeance, I do not rest!

    Annabel now under Raven's dark trance
    She was unconscious, unable to stand
    Raven now standing at freedom's entrance
    barring way into another realm's land.
    Hero then cried out, Raven you are mine
    Your awesome powers will not save you now
    My shield and sword are blessed by Light's shine
    I will destroy you, tho' I know not how.

    Poe said, no friend leave Raven's death to me
    For I wrote its existence, gave its might
    Carry my Love away upon thy shield
    My pen will compose your successful flight.
    Raven laughed, saying, relax they are gone
    She is safe and your aching heart may rest
    Yes friend, now we both are doomed and alone
    Master, did I play my evil part best?

    Note... heard echoed as the gate closed.....

    Yes Raven, yours was a runaway hit
    And my acting was not too bad a play
    Yet we are both still in this gloomy pit
    Shall we wait, let pen, dance another day?

    Note:
    Robert J. Lindley,
    Rhyme, ( Into Dark Glass A Ray Of Light Once Fell )
    Part One ( Predecessor series that later spawned series titled,
    "Darkness Where Now Poe And Raven Reside")
    this is where Poe first meets Raven..

    "The tapestry was worn and torn
    but its welcome was deep enough
    within castle walls, a life born
    its first cry, a growl and a gruff,"
    Captured In Raven's Realm Before Poe Found It,
    Part One ( Predecessor that later spawned the series titled,
    "Darkness Where Now Poe And Raven Reside")


    He that invaded my realm, broke my trusty pen
    was a beast of Darkness, en-slaver of brave men
    titan of cruelty, author of my defeat
    sent forth by Raven, to this despondent heart eat.
    With soft whisper, set a glass-splinter in mine eye
    vowing greater pain until I would beg to die!

    It spoke to Raven, while under its claw I rest,
    punishing this poet fool, I do with great zest
    Master, he has no power with his pen now broke
    you told me he was brave, I see only a joke.
    Pray tell, what weapon send him, to give him a chance
    perhaps golden shoes so in defeat he may dance!

    Raven unseen, sent down most devilish command
    find his lover, torture her, cut off her right hand
    make him watch, while chained to evil's first heartbreak stone
    leave him begging to die in that dark pit alone.
    I order you, do as your dark master decrees
    gift regrets, make his despair live eternities!

    Agony, then a sound gave some bit of relief
    for it whispered, I am freed from my great grief
    hold on, as I plow the dark to come to your aid
    for your friendship, remember the vow I once made.
    Know this truth, my verse lives on- my pen is my blade
    Annabel sends Raven, her ruby cloak as trade!

    In shock, aching brain knew this must be Master Poe
    for none other would such brave, valiant courage show
    and his dear Annabel sent her prized ruby cloak
    for its mighty magic could any love-fire stoke.
    But why would Raven above all, it now desire
    does not Raven ever, from its vengeance tire?
