Icon Two shots in the dark

Something i was mucking about with on my laptop during my latest bout of writer's block:

"Two shots in the dark ended the lives of three people.
Only one lived, the soul destroyed.
Two shots in the dark created a monster.
A monster born in darkness.
A monster born in suffering, and pain.
Full of rage and hate.
Tempered by love and compassion.
Then the monster became a knight.
Clad in armour and wings.
Riding a roaring iron steed.
A knight in shadow.
A symbol of hope for a ruined city.
A beacon of light.
The knight became a hero, and sacrificed himself.
But the hero will rise again.
The bat will return.
The Dark Knight Rises..."

What do you all think?

"You get on my nerves, and I don't like your hat. Now put the gun down."

Default A haiku?

Interesting little bit. When, exactly, will this knight return? I await another tale.

A good reputation take a long time to build, but only a moment to destroy. Wow, that's deep! Check out the H.O.E.S. short story competition.
Other stories from Adrian.
Look up Adrian in the "Compendium" to find them. Thanks
