    From where does death follow

    and prey, tiptoeing around on pointed feet. No I do not describe decay, not at all in the -usual- way. I intend to describe a loss of self, when old egos do burn in effigy And I cannot describe the pain, which comes along with this terrible end But lo' behold! Rejoice and...

    Will He Be My Reality?

    Lost without a smile, Tears that flowed with the wind, Each night and day, I close my eyes and dream of hope, The shattered emptiness crushed my soul. The cracks in my fragile heart slowly slipped away, I look to the sky as my wrists cry, I find hope in the darkness, The...

    The Collective Eye

    We trek across an amorphous dream Vague shapes weave into obscurities Drawing me in Extending a hand behind a smiling guise. Spiral front and then back again In a barrel we spin in disarray Forehead sweats Reaching to wipe the tears from another eye. Mind eclipses everything...

    My quill on paper is like blade to skin

    but forbid the transparency of one that is paper thin. My heart is heavy with envy and droopy with guilt but even though my heart of precious metals is formed it can still be smelt. The furnace in which is your love and your compassion is one thing that no person has given me.

    Those stars on high, those sorrows stars.

    Not wishes to be granted, but tears of the forgotten. Wishes that didn't come true, ephemera to remind of ruin. Beautiful memories of pain. Sorrows shining stars.

    On a whim, I followed the sun hoping at last

    that love was won. Into darkness, far through space till I was lost, and out of place. Left or right, now up or down? Wherefore have I lost my crown? The cold embraces and constrains and I will slowly go insane. For did I loose my way back home? Meandering about the cosmos...

    wen i fall in love When I fall in love,

    I want to be with him always; In happiness, to smile with him, and be the one to hug him near. In sadness, to cry with him, and be the one to dry his tears. When I fall in love, I will spend my every waking and sleeping moments with him and catch each moment in its...

    An ocean of memories of you to whom of

    I did nothing wrong, To hurt you with my tongue,

    For the words I have sung, Surely they shouldn't have stung. To be honest, I loved you till the end, But now we are just friends. It ended so abruptly when your soft lips departed and spoke, And in the end I couldn't manage a croak, My life is bad but it was livable with you...

    We All Have Our Demons

    We can't forget our past no matter how hard we try. But the tears we cry ,can wash away the demons inside. It doesn't take much for our past to return. A sound or a song, and those memories burn. I wish we could forget the thoughts that haunt our soul. So we could look forward...

    In the blink of an eye I realize my motivation

    A link that lies beyond the world Its treasures are immersed in a part of the soul That's not of this world When the figures of Earth are Gods With futile force they slay As they're only in store as machines of pain.

    The Laugh, Loud, obnoxious,

    sometimes annoying, But! Contagious, none the less. It's like a disease, Only everyone wants this one. Laughter, truly is the best medicine. You can't be mad, or sad when you're laughing. It's almost impossible. Almost. So again, the laugh.
