Last Ghost Rider

All day I rode long and hard,
Across the secret path;
The warning signs were everywhere,
Yet still I spurred on past.
Broken swords, hanging dogs;
Now this severed head,
Stuck high upon a bloodied pole;
Before the Bifröst Bridge.

All my other friends are gone,
My clansmen also died;
In one great final battle –
They now lay, by Odin’s side.
But how did I survive it all?
I should be amongst the dead,
Or am I the Last Ghost Rider,
Before the Bifröst Bridge?

        There is no need for any picture to go with it. The poem paints one in the reader’s mind. The imagination is often a better artist. That is why we often feel that a book is better than a movie adaptation of the same. So my suggestion is leave it to the reader 😀 all the best. Keep writing,
