Doctor Who by midnighttopha

35 (who?)
The gyre of Time holds it's sway,
The moonlight ridding high on decay,
Colored Blue, colored true
Whispers pause to ask 'Who'?
If you know the rules you'll see they're only tools

The blood cloth folds around a sword
They all follow blindly that dazzling cord
Lock pick magistracy, framed decency
The geometry of sacrifice hilts the logic of mercy
Caged instead of flesh is the honest reflection of self

Shadows dance when a Good Man goes to war
Fear will surge over a last chance when a Good Man goes to war
Chaos's spiral gate, with it's maw agape,
Calls on friends of old to face their fate when a Good Man goes to war
But blink and it's all for naught as always athwart is what was sought

Out from the final tower's lonely bell
Toll the moans of living hell
Lost is the moon, lost is the tomb
Blackened claws pluck fire from the womb
Reaching out across the stars, as war that crackles only far

From candle to cradle burnt out
This child is stolen, so without a doubt
Space will roar, dead gods abhor
As the last face of Gallifrey soars
Look beside the horrid surface, there it masks a darker purpose

Demons run when a Good Man goes to war
Night will fall and drown the sun when A Good Man goes to war
Friendship dies and true love lies
Night will fall and the dark will rise when a Good Man goes to war
Demons Run but count the cost, the battle's won but the child is lost

Time drops down in the sand
Counting out the clock's long hand
Innocence shakes, bones quake
That which is, is what we make
A leaf may float or fly and give hope to read by

Cried to apotheosis by Weeping Angels
Nightmares, the most hideous form, in you now tangles
Dissolving deep, death's hands seep
And shatters a Good Man's heart to keep
This is the worse death than a body without breathe

Space shudders when a Good Man goes to war
Hope writhes and despair flutters when a Good Man goes to war
All seeds born and all souls torn
To witness now what Time does scorn when a Good Man goes to war
Because look at what you've done but look at what you've become

(there needs to be a Fan Art - Fan Poetry gallery...)

River's poem felt like it was just a was part of a bigger poem, so I started trying to write it...

I tried to keep it vague enough that whatever happens tomorrow it will still's hoping.

This is
Part of me doesn't fully understand it (^^;), but the part of me that does is absolutely stunned! There should be more fanarts for River's poem, like this one!!

haha, it doesn't actually make sense. part of it is because I wrote most of it before the ep aired so I had to be vague, obscure, and random.
