A Deathless Prison
Recollections of my days are becoming blear, Or maybe it's the blood loss? I recall when the idea first crystalized, The fatuous endeavor before we inevitably die The toil, the tragedy, the momentary triumphs Humbled under the heel of time Studying sorcery I found way to survive, My soul entrusted to beast and bird, both buried under an oak Unburdened by mortality my morality decayed Whatever or whomever I desired I'd just simply take Victim of my own conceit, I was caught, shackled, and in defeat, With sorcery ensured hundreds died brutally, before being bound and pacified When efforts of execution failed to deliver me to death, I was immured by Marya Morevna Besieged by darkness, rats, rot, and irony My prison was a poetic reminder of a disadvantage of immortality Twelve chains restrained my neck, hands, and feet Ten years of isolation, while I wailed and screamed Then one day, my hoarse pleas of perdition, were finally answered A man named Ivan, unlocked my cell, and I was given water Revitalized, the sturdy restraints holding me were easily broken, and bust Marya's army would perish and she'd be my bride until the day she died Conjuring my power my rage became a tempest manifest The warrior princess and her army in route step, Would be destroyed slaughtered, by both whirlwinds and thunderstorm Bol'she nikogda Bol'she nikogda Bol'she nikogda!!! Then one day I was astonished to see, the young man Ivan attempt a rescue, foolishly Three warnings followed by three attempts, and I dismembered him disposed in the briny currents She escaped, again!? Tracking their trail, I was surprised to see, Ivan!? Though I dismounted and had approached cautiously Their steed suddenly bucked, striking my head violently Stunned, and beaten burned, my ashes were distributed and dispersed Enraged yet alive, my soul still separated I couldn't die Eventually I resurrected and returned to my castle I continued my life of hunting Some trophies chose to stay, some not, no one left Except Vasilisa who showed true fondness I witlessly shared the safekeeping of my soul Someone smashed my door, a rescue? I've dealt with these before A swordsman, named Bulat, claimed he would take my life Dismayed when his strikes failed to fell me Vasilisa took my side, and I felt an egg crack on my back Sharp agony overtook me and I fell to the floor Reinstated with mortality my constitution deteriorated Bulat and Vasilisa gone, my blood flowed onto the floor Victim of my own conceit, I was callous, stubborn, and recalcitrant With sorcery delayed when I'd die, undignified, ultimately forsaken and ostracized
