Ode to Sarah KerriganOde to Sarah KerriganOde to Sarah Kerrigan8 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I met a snarky ghost
who was prettier than most
her name was Sarah Kerrigan
and no one else came close
She could make herself invisible
and hide from prying foes
she'd spy on them for hours on end
how my love for her did grow
But one day fate swept down on her
and said her time was near
I cursed and howled and threw a fit
'Not a chance!' I yelled for all to hear
Oh Sarah, why'd it happen
Sarah, why'd you go
Sarah, how I loved you
but I never told you so
I put her in a dropship
in the corner of the map
to protect her and to keep her safe
from enemy attack
The zerg rushed hard
they came en mass
foul, smelly, ugly beasts
all pawing for her ass
But my defenses stood their ground
all through the day and night
battle after bloody battle
a grueling, gory fight
Finally the violence stopped
and victory was neigh
the mighty zerg had lost this time
with Sarah safely in the sky
But what was this?!
A voice cried out
'Help me, help me, someone, PLEASE!' Sa

Imagine a rat.
A cute, furry, pet rat.
Now, that rat is picked up.
It sits for a minute...
But that rat will eventually want out.
The rat squirms
the rat wiggles
the rat tries to bite
but the hand holds it there still.
Unable to move, it gives up.
Then, the other hand raises to pet the rat.
the rat is happy.
The rat is no longer scared.
the rat feels at home.
the rat couldn't be more at peace.
Now, who is that rat?
...that rat is you.
...that rat is me.
Who's hands are holding the rodent?
...those hands are God's.

"But why not? You do realize that you brought this up, right?" Jesus asked, dragging the question.
David looked at the ground and frowned. It was very idiotic to bring up to Jesus that he did not trust Him...now Jesus was "making" him do a trust fall.
"Jesus, You do know that this is not useful at all...right?" David asked.
"How do you know that?" Jesus asked, smirking.
David sighed and turned around.
"Jesus, that's the thing...I didn't know that you were going to do this...You know that I hate trust falls, the person behind me always drops me. Even after they catch me, they just drop my head after my fall. Remember how I had to go to the hospital because of this stupid stunt?"
Jesus did not seem moved by David's almost convincing arguement.
"Do you want to trust Me or not?" Jesus asked, stretching His arms out.
David sighed frustratedly and turned back around, crossing his arms again.
"How do I know that You won't drop me

And I'll give Death a persona. A face and a voice, so I can watch him as he watches me. So I can hear him whispering in the corner. I'll give him a hand to hold, so he can give me a touch to feel. And I'll keep him in the cellar, with all my other friends..
So I can look him in the eye and say,
"It never, ever, ends."
I had a bad day today. And you're always still so far away.. They're coming for me, I know, but I can't see them. We never are as good as we pretend. But I'll shelter you with my storm, we are disasters of our own design..
Death, my old friend.. Come to keep me warm again. Time wrapped me in your second skin.
You've come home to me again.

And with my eyes standing on the sky,
waiting that my white wings
return to caress my silky skin,
I'm seeking a sign of your
dark presence upon me
remembering with burning longing
all those soft kisses exchanged
during the warm summer nights...

Sora: ♫ As I travel far in my journey
Behind my shadow, always by me
Your hand in my hand...
You were there to help me grow
When things are lost and I don't know
Our world is grand
Lift your face and hear me say
Wipe those salty tears away
Even I cry when you are gone
Your existance was no lied
You're my heart from the other side
We are what we are
You're my one ♫
Roxas: ♫ Why is it hard for you to see?
You are you. I am me.
Sora, don't you understand...
We have live worlds apart
You are you with your own heart
I'm just one man ♫
Sora: ♫ Roxas you're my one
The dawn to my never setting sun
Without you I am none
I feel your pain, I feel your joy
Our bond cannot be destroy
You're my heart from the other side
You're my one
When your sad, even I cry
Together, we are always unify
No matter how far I try to run
Alone I cannot proceed
Roxas, without you, I cannot succeed
I am you and you are me
You're my one ♫
Roxas, without you...I

Breathe in, breathe out
Don't be afraid to scream
Don't be afraid to shout
If you dare to dream
Then don't you ever doubt
Don't you ever doubt
When your world is turned on its head
Be strong, young one
For your journey has just begun
If you give in to fear and dread
Then you let your enemies win
Don't let them get in
Don't go easy, don't settle for less
Because if you know what's best
You'd take the path of most resistance
You have to fight fire with fire
You gotta take a chance
Take a risk or two, lay it out on a wire
If you just go through the motions
Then you're not truly alive
If you want to survive
Then you need to swim
Swim against the current, let your heart be your guide
When you reach your destination
You'll look back at your trials and tribulations
Don't be afraid to smile, you made it through
You're a fighter, tried and true
Life has many hurdles and obstacles
But at last you know now that nothing is ever impossible

Oh Captain, my Captain! I say it to mock,
You're lucky as hell but to me you're a c***.
Please spare me the missions, I've no head for heights,
Balloons and big lists lead me only to blights.
Evading the probes of an alien race,
Then having to witness your > : ( angry face...
But what choice have I? I'm involved in these fights,
With Cancerous space-monsters full of red sprites,
And Lemonade weirdos and God knows what next,
Just how can you stay so serene and unvexed?
What price should I pay for your simple delights,
Be eaten by whales after soiling my whites?
I know you won't listen, but you'll come unstuck,
And one of these days you'll run right out of luck,
Your empire will fall, and your ego besides,
It's karma for sure, like the turn of the tides,
And then I will lol, sitting in my own muck,
Coz after all this I just won't give a f***.
My Box of SecretsMy Box of Secrets9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Everytime I get my hopes up
They are shot down with a bleeding bullet
So I sit behind a locked door
In hopes that someone will find the key
I wish to tell you everything
And for you to just hold me while I cry
But I am afraid
Afraid that you will leave me alone again
Im afraid that you will walk out of that room
Pretending you never knew it existed
that's how it always happens
No one knows what to say, So they walk away
I want to believe you'll stay with me
Too many times Ive swept up the shards
So when you find the key that will give my release
Be prepared for what you'll uncover
Ill be sitting there, waiting
With my box of secrets resting in my lap
Just dont open it unless you're ready
I don't want to be let down again
Six Words for a SlumpSix Words For A Slump:Six Words for a Slump1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
You're tired, unable to create anything.
You feel angry; the anatomy's wrong!
Why won't these words come together?
"Nothing's right anymore, my hands tremble..."
Yet the solution is fairly simple...
I'm showing it to you now;
Break up your ideas, smaller sized.
They come together, like in Tetris.
Rotate the blocks; shape your art.
Draw chibis and stick figures too.
Instead of epics, try a haiku.
How about a six word story?
If your mind is blocked, overheated.
Let it cool; take it slow.
By attempting all the smaller things,
Your art is sure to grow.

Running out of words
Cant express my thoughts
So much emotion
Losing my mind
Trying to find solid ground
Paper is so blank
Ink is so full
I cant think
No feeling left inside
Dont stop moving your hand
Let it out
Tell the world how it is
No holding back
Theres no way out
Everything is crashing down
Faster, harder than an avalanche
Clouded thoughts filling my head
Poison to my heart
Bleed it out
Hidden box of secrets
Swallowing me whole
Swept by a toxic lust
Im not your pretty prize
Excuse me while I break this pen on my wrist..
