Death's DaughterEverything to lose, nothing to gain.
There is so very little that remains.
A soul of light has turned to dark.
It's now littered with cuts and scars.
Noting to gain, everything to lose.
Death is the only option to choose.
He walks by her...he takes her hand...
She looks at him and knows he understands.
Coldness rest upon the skin,
Only seeming to sink further within.
She sits by a fire, begging for warmth...
But she wont...can't...feel it anymore.
Now, there is nothing to lose...
Now is there everything to gain.
Death now has a daughter in his home...
And there...in his arms...she'll always remain.

My heart is full. My head is clear.
And yet, I panic when you aren't here.
I love the feel of your touch each day.
I'm thankful that you take my fear away.
You're the sun in my morning sky.
You're the light to my dark.
You're my wings when I fly.
And you have the key to my heart.
You're in my soul and I'm on your mind.
When you think about it, we're really two of a kind.
You've given me all these special gifts,
So I hope my love is enough.
Because I don't know how to say thank you
For being there when things get tough.
I've given you my heart. I've given you my soul.
I've given you my mind and love forever more.
Are you the moon or are you the stars?
For when I look upon the sky, you don't seem so far.
You've changed my world around, make it new.
You've given me many things, but I'll only take a few.
Are you my love, are you my "one"?
I'll never really know.
I hope I get to find out
Before it's my time to go...
But in my mind, three words ring with truth.
These words that ring are,
New Discovery Ever look at your life and begin to wonder?New Discovery3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Do you wonder what's left for you to discover?
Is there anything still there to create shock?
Or is everything boring like a grey rock?
But wait...this rock is of unique design.
You must look at it with a careful eye.
Look at the different bends, curves, and cracks.
Think of what you'd like to have back.
Look at the how, with every second, there is change.
Nothing is ever exactly the same.
It's like the feeling of each new day.
A good, warm feeling, wouldn't you say?
Everywhere you look, something waits to be found.
Take a gander inside the "Lost and Found" and listen to each voice, to each sound.
A new discovery awaits your curious mind.
That is, if you still seek to find.
New discoveries still exist within your life.
You really just have to open your eyes.

Dearest Angel, sweet Light Bringer...
you've been treated so poorly.
Everyone knows your story, Lucifer...
everyone knows about your fall from serenity.
But, is it the true tale of your descent and how you became fallen?
You are the angel heaven forgot, that heaven has forsaken.
Somehow, Lucifer, you don't seem so evil or bad.
Your tale is something that is truly sad.
Whatever words are said about you now, one fact remains.
You were an angel then...and still are to this day.
Dearest angel that heaven forgot and tossed away...
you'll find peace, somewhere, someday.

Rhythmic beating upon soft soil resounding throughout the lush green forest, hues of all colors splashing with each beat. Native birds warbled the song that only seemed to add to the magic already in play, making the forest seem more alive than it had been in many a year. In the center of this enchanted scene, stomping with the tempo, a nymph-like entity moved with complete grace and elegance. The sunlight shined on this rare beauty through the canopy above, making it as though she were naught but a transparent figure. Dancing by the river side, the rushing water going over smooth rocks made it as though chimes were playing. Of course, this was only transpired as such by those with a magic sort of ear.
With hair like the softest silk, the white tresses whipping around the slender face, it would cause one to think of this woman being in liquid glass, the currents playing with each strand of hair. With skin being soft to the finest of touch, eyes of lavender shades that glowed bright

An Angel of Stars that's place them in the air.
Angel of Stars, what would you look like?
Maybe, you could be a star, as well, in the sky.
But, what I see are wings of white and eyes that sparkle.
I see hair of navi blue and a smile that twinkles.
Angel of Stars, as you fly through the endless sky,
Each celestial body is given new life.
Shooting across the sky, she leaves a trail of star dust.
A comet could only watch in awe and lust.
"Twinkle, twinkle, little start, how I know what you are.
Up above the would you shine,
I am proud to call you mine."
She utter these words with love on her face.
Spreading more start all over the place.
When you look up at the sky tonight,
And see the start shining bright,
Make a wish with all your might.
The Angel of Stars will make your wish tak
The Silent BardThe rushing of water, the patter of raindrops, repeated chirps from a lark, and the brush of the breeze against crystal sounding chimes that hung from the branch of a yew tree. These minor things wouldnt mean much to many people, but they were pieces of a melody and so much more to a certain man. The lark, for instance, would become the soothing, sweet notes that came from a flute. The chimes were already serving their purpose with the simple beauty of their sound as the breeze moved through them. Lovely scented liquid in the form of diamond like raindrops are transformed into the gentle tone of percussion, making a steady beat that joins with the flute and chimes. As for the rushing water well with it passing over the smooth rocks that lay upon the shore of the river this was natures own way of singing, the son having no use for words. But, one man could truly strum together a harmony such as this.The Silent Bard5 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

They travel the world, blind, but looking and searching.
Searching for the life that the soul should be living.
Looking to live in a world that is slowly dying.
Eyes, wide open, looking around without pure vision,
Seeking for color, trying to make the right decision.
The ear, resting on the side of the head, wait for sound but cannot hear.
They strain and listen, but no noise reached them.
How can they have the experience of music?
How can the learn the melody of voice?
Ears to listen, to hear, to collect sound.
Trying to catch the slightly rhythm with deafness so profound.
The nose, doing its best to capture the sweet fragrance.
It draws in our life, our oxygen, the very breathable source.
However, what is accepted is tainted and foul.
It crawls deep inside, decaying from the inside out.
A struggle takes hold, pushing for clean oxygen.
It truly is a treasure what is free given.
The mouth, preparing the speech...the words.
Angel of DeathSilent as a dark, moon filled night.Angel of Death3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
No one is ever able to catch him in their sight.
Coldness rushes in with his every step.
A coldness that would suggest death.
His wings of black good and decay,
Only tell of his lifeless prey.
"Angel of Death" is what he's called.
An angel who appears after life's fall.
Like that of a banshee, he can sense death miles away.
"Angel of Death, I cry out in dismay."
When he's around there is much fear.
Death is his shroud, hanging in the air.
Angel of Death, how you wait in the shadows.
You take life, leaving nothing to follow.
What do you do with the souls you collect?
Are they part of some kind of debt?
Oh, Angel of Death, you are but a soul yourself.
That must be, for you, a difficult thought.
If you, young mortal, should feel an evening draft..
You may be in for one hell of a trap.
The Angel of Death has made you his next find.
Death is the one thing you'll have on the mind.
There will be no place to run or hide.

Keeping to the shadow's, your own isolation.
Hiding away from disapproving eyes,
Many think that you're just shy.
Away in silence you make no sound.
Not even a footstep upon the ground.
Away in silence, away from the world,
You smile in pleasure, a smile so cruel.
Evil lurks behind amber spheres,
Yet, the smile remains, nothing to fear.
When they come searching for you...
They will not even catch a glimpse,
For you slip back into the dark...
Slip back away in silence.
The Definition of JealousyJealousy what words are there to form the meaning of this simple, yet complicated, term? ToThe Definition of Jealousy3 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Define it from the dictionary is an easy task to those of common knowledge, but still what is
jealousy? The definite description of jealousy is: a jealous disposition, attitude or feeling;
zealous vigilance; resentment against a rival and being envious. However, from a personal
perspective, jealousy can be even more than what is defined in the absolute. There are two
things that I can think of when I put thought on jealousy. For the first one, every
time I see the new amount of money posted up for the Lotto Jackpot, my attitude becomes a
mixed cocktail of things: excitement, wishful, and competitive. Then, the actual knowing of the
new amount hits me like a ton of bricks. If there is a new sum already then a lucky individual
has probably won it by now. This is where the jealousy kicks in and I'm thinking about just how
much I want to be that person. Ever heard the saying "he

Imaginations awake and travel far.
Wishes start as simple fantasy.
But, within dreams, wishes become reality.
Soaring high, riding on a comet,
Dreams make anything possible, just like the dreamer wants it.
Grab a star and make a wish.
Nothing could be better than this.
Those who dream find happiness.
They find peace within the stillness.
Night covers them like a blanket of warmth.
Something that is not often found in the real world.
To sleep is to dream, to dream is to play.
Inside dreams it can be either night or day.
Those who dream are in bliss.
Almost as thought they've received a kiss.
Not one worry...not one care...
Nothing be harm them there.
Dreams exist for one simple reason.
So our imaginations stay alive and have some meaning.
Ah yes, those who dream touch the stars...
It's no wonder they seem to travel so far.
Unfinished PieceCandle of lavender and vanilla, sweet scent, delicious aroma. Soothing thoughts going through the mind for a minute or two, especially if this girl is someone like you. Young girl, age of 19 years, sits near the window on a sunset colored eve, gazing through the frost covered glass out to the snow. Tresses of auburn hair cupping around a sleek, slender face, cascading down her neck, shoulders, and back to end in soft curls. Her eyes were of purple variety, mixes of dark and light, swirling around towards the center, making the beauty stand out much more. Slender body, frame of elegance, hands like gorgeous sculptures, and features that would take away the breath of any man who happened to glance upon such rare, unique beauty. However, on this particular night, there was no man to hold her, no man to cherish her beauty, no one to whisper in her ear causing laughter to bubble, the sound being of chimes or of bells.

Like the caress of love turning into hate.
Like the brush of warmth going cold, making you shake.

Think about a world without a cheerful thought.
We take everything for granted, everything we've got.
Think about the Earth with oxygen to breathe.
We would disappear, not a human left to see.
Life is too short, this lesson well learned.
We must change for the better to make the world turn.
Think of a world where there is no music.
A world where all is lost and thrown into damnation.
I suppose the phrase "Hell on Earth" is appropriate here.
What do we, as humans, hold near and dear?
Always wanting more power, money, and things..
There doesn't seem to be time to count our blessings.
