I've been scribbled out ~ lost it all in the fight ~
at one point I even forgot what I was fighting for.
But I do know this: they are all gone. I am not sure if I just misplaced my pencil or someone else won my words ~ as if they are stapled to some random wall with a pretty blue ribbon and I am left with an honorable mention plaque made from Paper Mache.
Or maybe it is me that is scribbled out. Someone has taken their dulled pencil in fist and rubbed the paper raw, rubbed it right through until all that is left is a huge hole and the desk is covered with a thick layer of lead.
Is that all I am? lead on plywood? Someone's stick figure to delete at their whim?
I dont know.

It couldn't be done.
Emotion, passion, you showed me none.
I'm through trying now, my efforts exhuasted.
The beautiful irony is now you want me in your life.
Now you love me, It hit you head on.
You show your passion, your fatal flaw is gone.
Why do I feel this wrestless disgust?
I should be happy, But leave you I must.
Im not fully happy, Im searching for more.
Maybe im destined to be dissatisfied, eternally bored.
What answers are there, I pray to the lord.
The saddness engulfs me, It tightens my chest.
I hate myself for hurting you, for looking at the rest.
Your a wonderful person, but maybe it is you.
Maybe you are the one, maybe I wont see it till your gone.
Im not sure of the outcome, but I know one thing.
This game is definitly through, You dident love me, Now I cant love you.

Painting dragonflies on your silver skin,
Falling deep in to slumber, darkness crawling
Possessing me, and holding me motionless within.
Cant you hear the moon shining brightly in my eyes?
Letting the light flow like a shattered curse,
Gushing as a spinning wheel of time
Bringing my soul close to the edge, I have no hope.
Cant you feel the words of the damned?
Blooming like golden writing on my stone.
Find me broken, cold and untouched,
Drinking venom from my acts, Im crashing alone.
Cant you smell these tears of sorrow?
Playing dead for a perfect love, a perfect dream,
All I have now is only what I borrow
Like a mute pretending to laugh and scream.
Cant you taste the heavy ground covering me?
In these eyes needing, Im calling for you.
Born in shades of hate, despised asking for revenge,
Wanting you here today, not gone by tomorrow.
Cant you love whats left of this heart?

If never we'd met,
i'd be the most empty of creations.
Base and damaged,
beyond the saving of love.
Lost inside a chain,
in all of eternity.
Down beyond depths,
a never ending night.
If you never could love me,
the loss would never be known.
Breaking inside me,
injury beyond imagining.
Lie to me and tell me,
we did not exist.
i would remain.
Shadows of what i should be made,
reflecting what i never found.

Then walk the ramps and climb it and tell me of the sights,
For I will never see them!
You see, Im uh
Quite afraid of heights.

When you scrape them together.
When you throw them
Or set them down.
Rocks are made by nature,
Therefore have a spirit
And a soul of their own.
In the imagination of a child,
The rock pet speaks stories.
Tells tails to play the mind.
Or to just be friends.
Or its that one special stone
In a basket of many
That calls out to the individual
For the special connection.
So listen well
And pay attention.
For rocks always have sound.

Creatures of the night, the epitome of grace, natures silent acrobat, the beautiful hunter the Cat is far too complex and independent to force into a small boxed categorization. To understand the mystical divinity of unashamed felinity, one cannot simply group cats into simple trait-based characterizations.
To organize through color that is ridiculous! In all colors from the Russian Blue, to the black Bombay, to the fiery Tabby, these could, perhaps, fit a rough category for blue, black and red

Yes! I want to know about you: a day in your life, likes and dislikes, that sort of thing.
Sayr: That's a lot to ask a dragon. We usually require some sort of sacrifice before we divulge such knowledge. I presume you have the virgin here someplace?

"Really now? All eight?"
Spyro nudged Pandora. "Mom, can I talk to you?"
"Sure, let's go to the kitchen." The two walked out of the room.
Cyndra frowned. "Dad doesn't really like any of this... he just wants to know why Grandma chose you as her mate..."
Malefor lowered his gaze onto her. "Well now, must all our decisions be justified to him? I love Pandora; what more is there to know?"

Three years later...
Malefor watched with interest as the two young dragons approached him. They were both fifteen. The one on his left was a black dragoness; Cynder. And the other was Spyro.
Malefor was impressed by the way the youngster's appearance has changed. Spyro was taller, and the childish plumpness was gone, replaced by muscle. His face was set with a fiercely determined expression.
Malefor stepped forward. "At long last, my guests have arrived. Please, come in. Such determination to get here. It seems we share other qualities besides that of our color." He addressed his words at Spyro, expecting the young dragon to realize the truth any moment now...

A voice broke through Malefor's rage. Gaul. Malefor, I have an idea that is guaranteed to free you. Are you forgetting that the Night of Eternal Darkness is approaching?
Malefor calmed down and thought about it. Yes, he could use that day to escape... and unlike the other spirits that would return, he would remain even after the celestial eclipse, since he is technically still alive. Not to mention, much stronger than any spirit. He still had the strength that was transferred to him from the guardians, and he could use that to free himself easily.
Yes, that would work... thank you for reminding me. How long do we have to prepare?
That will be more than enough.

The land was quite dreary and lifeless, and excruciatingly cold. The only place of comfort was the tall mountain overlooking it, where fires were kept going in almost ever cave that formed a network of tunnels running through it. It was a natural castle looming above its surroundings.
Outside, despite the frigid conditions, and army was well into their daily training. It wasn't a regular army, though; it was comprised of hundreds of apes of all different sizes. Some were only two feet tall while others towered to about six feet. These large apes carried huge swords and spears while the smaller ones trained in hand-to-hand combat.
Overseeing them all from the safest and warmth of the mountain fortress was a huge purple dragon with narrow yellow eyes. They had no whites and the pupils were mere slits. The could be compared easily to the eyes of a snake.

Those eyes of yours, judging all that they see
will never know the lessons carried within me.
Even if told, you could never understand,
yours is not the ability to see far past your own hand.
You are a cherished one who has seen few sorrows.
Your mind is a closed one that does not venture for a different kind of tomorrow.
So keep on sitting there, missing all that we can see

After all, besides me, who has their first childhood memory about a teenage boy rescuing you from something and handing you half of a broken necklace? Since then, finding that boy has been my quest, but to no avail. He must have either been a figment of my imagination or something, because he simply doesnt seem to exist! Also, I have never known my family; so really, I am somewhat shunned and teased by everyone.
Another reason for me to be different is that today is my first day of going to a Japanese school! What a joy this will be NOT! Although I seem to be at least half Japanese, I highly doubt Ill fit in, especially since to the majority of people, I am highly annoying and obnoxio

Who cares about my wants.

But at least smiles around me.
I wish to be in love,

Who wipes the tears away,
And brightens the sun that dims in me.
I wish to be in love,
With someone who doesn't judge by my looks,
Who actually loves me because their heart pounds,
And turns fragile,
Like mine does oh so much.
I wish to be in love,

Who is in love with me.
I wish to be in love,

Instead being crush,
My glass heart seeping its red liquid on the floor,
Cracking at every fail,
At every loss,
At every turn-away.
I wish to be in love.
