Brighter DaysBrighter Days8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I look outside and the sun's too bright
I just want to go and kill the light
It's just too cheerful for this day
And a rain cloud is over my head now
It's around so much I don't notice how
It's getting bigger every day
And to you God I cry out now
Can't you bring her back somehow?
Why did you take her away?
And the aches and the pain
When I'm calling her name
And there's no one there to answer
Why are we the ones to survive?
Why was it her that had to die?
Why do I feel so bad without her?
Will I ever see another bright day
And be able to look at it the same way?
Will I ever forget that she's not here?
And to you God I cry o
The Undefeated KnightThe Undefeated Knight6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Gallant knight, brave and bold, forward go
Championing justice for both high and low
Long ago, parents did name him Bob
And raised him eating corn on the cob
For a peasant farmer's son was he
Until called to battle for both king and country
He went forth with pitchfork, weapon of a farmer,
And absolutely awful abstracted armor
So strange he looked that the enemy fell back in fear
Not wanting such a man to come them near
And so the battle turned into a rout
Without any real fighting to brag about
As a celebrated hero returns now the knight
Never having fought in this or any other fight

"Haha, I've got you this time, Yahweh!" The young man crowed as he rounded the corner of the garden path. Like always, his robes were slightly askew, revealing more of his muscular form than was necessary. Though he tried, he couldn't keep the excited expression from his handsome face.
"What is it now, Lucifer?" Asked Yahweh. He didn't move from where he sat, head bowed, eyes closed, white hair flowing gracefully around him. "You have disturbed my meditation once again, and for one of your silly extended metaphors, no less."
"I know, Yahweh, I know," Lucifer replied, his words fraught with frustration as he sat beside his master in th

the Stars look like new.
Bright and twinkling they shine,
surreal luminescence all that keeps
the soft, white world
from drifting into utter Despair.
Their glow dances upon the frozen fabric,
twisting the threads and weave.
Then, as if to stave off the night,
a star shoots forth from the heavens,
Falling to earth in splendor magnified,
and Why? And down in the lake, the sudden
star-burst of four kittens under a lid of ice,
heading to the four corners of nowhere.
King of DarknessKing of Darkness6 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Long winding staircase spiraling into infinity
Simultaneously climbing and falling into the void
In the nothingness, starshine absent always
Haunting memories of times now past replay
Only one, he and he alone, now and forever
Darkness reigns, Darkness reigns
All this pitiful realm of night
Swathed in stars and shadows
He descends, ever descends the stair
Does he know of his journey? Does he care?
King Darkness moves down his realm
Single, horrid, eerie spiral of decadent decay
Invaders of old bow at his dark cloaked feet
Never will they rise as slowly, so slowly
Such trespassers are absorbed into oblivion
And Darkness reigns,
