He bounds through the forest
Searching for companionship
Moonlight glinting in his eyes
Howling with the anger in his heart
A lone vagabond
Wandering the world alone
Glaring at the hateful stars
Howling at the laughing moon
Stops and listens
The souls of those past
Join him in his search
Forever guiding him
Never leaving his side

take a step into what lies beyond,
slam shut, I'm trapped,
can't stop now that I'm on.
Engines humming, growing louder,
tinny voice, Tannoy voice,
jets roaring, I'm flying,
facing my phobia,
this is my phobia,
I'm facing my phobia.

Do not fade
Do not die
Your light has surrounded me
Your life as always been within my soul
Your eyes are blank and white
Cold and pale as death itself
Your wings are my breath
If they are black and withered
On the outside

I will never let go of you!
As you have me
All these years...
You've held my hand
Through thick and thin
Through horror and Exilleration
So rest for eternity
You've led a painful life
You may rest now
But I shall follow in your footsteps
I shall hold onto you
I cannot revive you
So sing one final anthem

HeroDid I live up to what you expected?Hero4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Am who you wanted me to be?
Probably not but this is what I became,
What we became.
I am strong though,
You wanted to be strong didn't you.
I'm free also,
Well as free as the people want to be.
I fixed things with him too,
Well as much as I could.
We're close again,
In very different ways from back then though.
I hate being grown up,
What we you thinking back then?
Making us grow up so fast,
You weren't ready yet.
Now that I think about it.
We never would have been.
Did you grow up like you wanted?
Am I really that hero?
Red, White, and BlueRed: The color of bombs bursting in air, of British soldiers, of the fires of Sherman's March. Red was the color of battlefields, of ignited gunpowder, but also the color of passion. The limitless passion for freedom, that had pounded in his veins for two hundred and thirty-five years, the passion that never showed signs stopping. Nor would he ever allow it to stop, he had promised Franklin that much, in that sweltering room in July during 1776.Red, White, and Blue3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
White: The color of stubbornness, of snow, of the foaming sea, and the powdered wigs of those old men. White was the color ship's sails. He remembered several of his precious people and few of his children attacking a ship full of Artie's beloved tea before dumping it into the Boston Harbor. Whenever he remembered that he remembered, the boats packed to bursting with soldiers. Soldiers dressed in red, red like the bloodshed the caused. But he never lost his stubborn resolve.

The clouds ignore my cry.
I stare at this limp body in my arms
My eyes burn like fire
And my tears feel like rain.
Why did this have to happen?
Why to him?
Why not me?
Take me instead!
The thunder rolls
And lightning flashes
And rain pours down upon me.
The blood stains the ground
But I dont care.
The battle finished,
Take me instead.
What happened in a moment
Will haunt me forever
I will never forget
This merciless sky
That looks down upon me
As I cry
Take me instead!
I hold him close for this moment
He smiles before he closes his eyes.
Take me instead.
The angry storm rages on,
Telling me to stop my begging-
Its all in vain,
Yet I scream to the heavens
Take me instead!
A Wolf's LullabyA Wolf's Lullaby9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Looking through my opened window
Unable to sleep at all
I hear a wolf's cry
Full of sadness and pain
At the sound of it I start to cry
Running into the forest with only my pjs
I follow the trails of wolves
Looking for wounded soul that cried
Finding the wounded animal
Knowing it's about to die
I get on my knees and craddle it's head
Singing a wolf's lullaby
Several years later unable to sleep again
I hear the sound of wolves crying
Full of happiness and rejoice
I fall asleep at the sound of a wolf's lullaby
PrideCan you see me?Pride4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Do you honestly see me?
No you look at me fine,
But you can never see me.
Here I am stripped of everything,
You took everything but my pride,
I'll never let you take that from me,
It's all that holds me here.
Not just to the stark wasteland,
That once harbored my mind,
No it's deeper than that,
It's kept me alive.
If pride is a sin,
So be it I'll live in it,
I will not die because of you,
Not that you'd even notice.

Which do you prefer- Soft or Crunchy? Soft leaves less mess and lasts longer, but it still disappears....Crunchy leaves pieces everywhere and crumbles easily, leaving you with nothing- Soft is fun to eat and chew, Crunchy breaks, you barley get a taste- Satisfied yet?!
You act all sweet making me happy, comfort me through the hard times- fill my head with white lies, make me taste the salt of tears, makes me vomit just thinking about this....Lure me in with the delicious mess you left me- I wish this could of l

Pet name "The Pig".
That left handed wonder.
The best left handed bassist.
The one of the Nine.
Only Eight left behind.
The loved ones, friends...
They miss You.
The world will
never be the same without You.
You gave us a voice,
a place to go to get away
from the troubles in our lives.
You were a dear close friend
and a brother to us.
Who had a special relationship
with your band and fans.
You were a one of a kind person
who can not be replaced.
But. No matter what;
You might be gone but not forgotten.
You left us here but
Your soul is still here with us.
Please, guide us.
Lead us to the better world.
Watch us from the Heavens.
Rock the Heaven
with other wonderful
musicians who had left the World
and gone to the better place.
We all love You
from the bottom of our hearts.

"Yeah we're never never going to see each other again. After this." I looked at her. There were tears in her eyes, streaming down her cheeks. I bit my lip. She sniffled.
"I don't want it to be like this." My voice was quiet as I spoke. I looked down at my shoes beat up Converse. They, like I, had been through so much with her. I scuffed at the ground with the toe of my shoe. "Why does it have to be this way?" I looked up at her now, tears in my own eyes. She sighed.
"Because, it just has to be."
"It doesn't have to be! Listen to me, I-," I was cut off. Her father was screaming for her. She let out a sob, and jumped into my arms. She hugged me tightly, and spoke.
"David, you're my best friend, and I love you for that. You were always there for me, and you always did things with me that should've gotten you into trouble. You helped me when no one else would, and you have up until today. You were always by my side, wherever I wen

The feeling of bliss
The writhing in pain
The tranquil peace
The road to the insane
The feeling of high
The eternal darkness
The contented sigh
The verge of madness
The stress-free mind
The hurting soul
The joy on cloud nine
The burning cold
The exhilarating thrill
The road to jail
The happy pill
The agonizing wail
The start of heaven
Hell's dead end
The stress-free haven
Death's little friend
The wrong way out
The right way in
From the real world
To the misery within

You were 38 years young
but you've passed away.
You have joined the Rev,
Dimebag, Peter Steele
and Ronnie James Dio.
Wherever you are,
you are rocking out.
Together you'll make
one hell of a band!
While you rest in peace -
look over your wife Brenna,
and the baby
you were expecting.
as you were known
for your mask
resembled one -
you cannot be replaced.
Slipknot, have hit the knot;
Things will never be the same

Maggot cursed as sucked on her bleeding finger. Damn she thought looking at her cut finger. She kicked the piano and yelped at the pain that went up her leg. "Stupid dumb piano, makes me cut my finger and now it has to hurt my foot" she growled at the hulking instrument. "Maggot I don't hear any music" Maggot glared at the door as she heard her mother yell. "Maggot I don't hear any music, Mother I don't care" she muttered in a mocking voice. How she wished she could get away from her family. Maggot began playing the piano again as she thought about her life.

Existing is something not easy for me just a compilation of discared remnants

I won't truly smile cause I'm dying inside you cannot see it but I'm fading away
I'm tossed away discarded just like what was used to make me

I try to be a hero but thats not me......I'm utterly useless now I can see
When I smile im truly crying for I know this is my place, my hell, my fate
Don't try and save me just let me go, let me fall, let me fade
