Burning PrayerUp to you I offer this burning prayer.
Let it be heard in the highest skies.
You were my angel,
You destroyed me.
And now I pray for the power to kill you.
Listen now to my screams of rage.
Listen well to the rage I feel.
You were my angel,
You left me alone.
And I will hate you forever.
My death will not be release.
I will hunt you until time ends.
And the day when you die
I shall smile again.
For your blood shall run
Over my hands.
My Only AngelWhite wings you had,My Only Angel5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Perfect and pure.
You soared among us,
And your smile brought us light.
But now those wings are bound and black,
In chains of blood and death.
You can fly no longer,
And you cry out, pleading for help.
But they watch, oblivious.
Smiles and laughs in their eyes,
They send no aid.
You sit and watch us.
There are tears in your eyes.
You are broken, bleeding,
Death is not far now.
But no matter how dark you become,
How far you fall,
How deep you plunge,
You are my only angel.
The Things I Must ProtectThese are the things I must protect.The Things I Must Protect5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
These precious things which lie in my hands.
Their weight is greater than their size.
And I must bear it well.
I must give myself for them;
They are more important than I will ever be.
At least to me.
No matter how much they will protest,
I must always guard them.
They will tell me to save myself.
But they must always come first.
These are the things I must protect.
Even at the cost of my own life.

From the horrors outside.
The shadows, they want me.
They hunt me, yearn for my blood.
My flesh, my mind.
They want all of me.
And they will have it.
Unless you hold me.
Protect me from them.
Save me now,
Where no other can.

Are you tired, my sparrow?
Don't cry anymore.
I am here.
Rest now, dears sparrow.
Sleep here, in my arms.
I will not let you fall again.
Fly with me as you sleep.
Watch the stars go by.
Hush now, my sparrow.
Wipe your tears away.
Fear no more,
I fly with you forever.
Cradled in my arms,
I feel you drift away.
Falling into slumber,
Fly on, my sparrow.
I will not say this
To your waking ear.
I love you,
But when you wake,
I will not be here.
Heroes of GaiaWhat would you do for the world?Heroes of Gaia5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
What would you do for Mother Earth?
What would you do for God's creations?
What would you do for yourself?
Would you protect it like others do?
Would you create a cause to save nature?
Or would you be tolerant, passive,
and continue to destroy the world?
The Almighty has given us,
everything we need.
He has allowed us to use it.
But we have abused it.
Man is greedy.
Man is restless.
But the truth remains.
We need to start.
We need to start now.
For we have limited time.
Let's start with ourselves.
Before helping others.
For if we are corrupted,
How could we help?
Our intention may be good.
But the method is bad.
Let's take away all evil.
Let's change our mind.
We don't need to be someone,
to do something.
We don't need to be popular,
to start a change.
We don't need to be grown-ups,
to start acting.
We, children, could affect.
We could influence.
Even if people don't see.
He sees us.
He knows what we did.

You are mine.

Until the end of my days.
We will fight the world together.
You as my slave.

My tears speckle the pillow
brilliantly like stars the firmament.
Every single star lets my heart
die in another part.
Outwards apparently in silence
but at the inside with a soul-shattering scream.
With the bravery of despair
I tried to face myself up to this pain
and to tear you from my heart
together with the root
that anchors you firmly there.
For some time I seemed to have succeeded
to accomplish this inhuman strain.
However, my damned heart has betrayed me,
it shows me my weakness quite plainly.
It almost seems as if you put a spell on me.
Because with one single look,
even with the lifting of an eyebrow,
you lift me in seventh heaven
or overthrow me in the deepest hell.
The tears of my pain and my joy
lie in your beloved hand.
I love you so much,
it seems nearly impossible
for a human heart to comprise that.
But the heart is a chalice
unmeasured in its capacity.
Who loves, doesn't forsake himself
in the love for the other.
He augments his self

Turn away from these shadows
Which will always haunt me.
Shun this life
While you can.

The prayer to stay alive,
While others are dying around you.
It is a dangerous hope.
It is a terrible thing,
To know that only some will live.
It is dreadful
To know that you will not be
The one who is saved.
More dreadful still
To realize that you will.
For to escape
And leave others for dead
Is the hardest choice
Anyone will ever make.
6996, Valentine's DayThe air bloomed crisp and white from between her lips, chilling her lungs. Her cheeks were numb from the wind. She had been running for what seemed an eternity.

Behind her, she could hear the voices and thundering footsteps of her pursuers. Chrome knew there just normal people; Japanese citizens who had lost control of their urge to drink. She didn't want to hurt them; she knew the boss would not want her to. But if she didn't find a way out, they were going to hurt her.
She darted around the corner of a building, and found herself staring up at a brick wall. Chrome had pinned herself into a dead end, and the men were too close behind to escape.
Clutching the box tighter to her chest, Chrome turned and pressed her back against the wall. Her uncovered eye widened in terror as seven men came careening around the corner; more than there had been at first; and stopped to leer at her

They stood at the edge of the stone floor, gazing out over a world of rosy clouds. He held her hand gently in his, the only hand that would be with him for as long as he would live; for he would never die.
"Lelouch," She whispered, turning her calm yellow eyes on him. He met her gaze evenly, scarlet bird insignias flaming where his irises had once blazed violet. One slender eyebrow lifted, "You have done a great thing."
Lelouch smirked. He didn't need to say anything. She wouldn't accept modesty, she would rebuke arrogance. Such was C.C.
"This world you have raised a strong child, Lelouch." She looked back out over the clouds, "I hope you realize you've spoiled it, in a way. You've taken such good care of it, the child can never live without Zero."
Lelouch blinked in surprise. This was not the sort of thing C.C. usually said. He opened his mouth to object.
"Will do well as Zero, in times of peace." C.C. countered his thoughts, "But he does not have your d

Of the four, I know Autumn deepest-
for I, like the leaf,
lose color and fall when my season comes,
in a cycle as old as rhythm;
old as rhythm and repetition.
Undulation is a law, I am reassured,
unbreakable as gravity.
(As though gravity were less hateful!)
The mightiest wave has the lowest trough,
and the greatest height the steepest fall, and
my greatest victories over Egypt

Is progress then a lie?
Is there any real change, or
do we pattern ourselves after our Sun, our Moon, our Earth,
traveling vast distances, to at the climax of some epic journey
end right where we'd begun?
Our waxing becomes waning the moment it passes its fullest.
Tell me it is false!
Prove me wrong! Prove me wrong!
Prove me wrong, please...

show me a stairway that only leads upward.

An ant ascended the first time from his hole
and saw nothing but gray,
the earth and its mysteries obscured behind a fog.
"Surely my tunnels are all the world," said he,
and returned underground,
and thought no more of it.
And this is man a hundred fold!
This is man, and this is me.
I speak of The Big Picture as what I see
in a mirror or a microscope;
I know only myself and the merest fraction
of knowledge there is to be known.
The grand tapestry of plans within plans
was not revealed to me,
I see one circumstance and declare "life is misery,"
determined to miss the splendor of a thousand miles of forest
for the decay of a single tree.
What nearsighted foolishness, to say
"The world is this," or "the world is that"
as though the world were anything but a world,
a sphere of light and shade fully owned by neither.
Let "there are no words" be words enough,
and let man's fickle tongue give no more definitions.

"Yes.." the boy barely squeaked.
"Good," the man concluded, "Run along now."
The young boy quickly fled the room and the man closed the door behind him. He then sat down at his desk, opened the top drawer, and pulled out a brightly coloured yo-yo.
With a delightful grin on his face, he began to play.

Do not look at me like that.

To see me walk away.

We survived together.
Alone, we would both be dead.
But now I have little choice.
I have been summoned away from you,
And I must go as called.
So don't cry,

I do not leave you.
I never will.
Instead I part,
For the smallest while.
I have faith in you;
You will find me,
And bring me back again.

"I want this one, Mom!" Cara pointed excitedly at a frilly pink dress with wings hanging off the back.
Cara's mother walked over to the costume rack. After examining the price tag, she shook her head. "This one's a little expensive, Cara. Ooh, how about this one?"
Cara stuck out her tongue at the skeleton costume that her mother was holding up. "No way. That's Anna's kind of costume." She accentuated her point by jabbing her finger in the direction of her older sister, who was examining a rack on the other side of the costume shop. Anna, who was one year Cara's senior, had always been the tomboy of the pair.
Anna's voice rang from across the store. "Hey Mom, I found one!" She walked over to them, holding up a furry w
