Don't burn the moonlight.
Leave it rest on the Earth,
Let it refract off the dew-drowned leaves.
Jacob, Jacob, don't kill the moonlight, Jacob.
Don't paint-wash the forest,
Not with the colour of the stars and of the sun,
Allow the night its rise and let her see out her silver-clouded eyes.
Jacob, Jacob, don't waste the night's beauty, Jacob.
Don't stop running though the trees,
Make the ferns sway as you run past,
Let the forest echo your hard breathing and your passion.
Jacob, Jacob, don't ever stop, Jacob.
Screech and call for me,
Cry and laugh for me,
Run after me,
Jacob, Jacob, whisper sweet nothings and fantasies in my burning ears, Jacob.
Never stall me,
Never catch me,
Not until the dawn breaks,
And the dew-drops reflect rainbow flecks in our eyes.
Please Jacob, please don't ever stop.
Let us grow old like this,
The way they used to,
When societal values were mere guidelines,
And young love danced lives and loves away.

in their cage
they paint their nails not
that the sun is watching
from his trap door
in the cloud ceiling where
whales can't swim but go
and drop down their weight in rain
not measured in pints
but lives overflowed
in lost archipelagos full
of automatic islands
that catch the eyes like needles
when viewed from further away
than the end of the world
Eternal WarfareI know I dissapoint you when I say that your wrongEternal Warfare10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To witness my defeat you've been waiting so long
And yet I'm standing here
Now I laugh in your face
And yet your lying there
Now you wallow in disgrace
You dare to let our war step out of line
The theories may be yours but the hatred is mine
I'm aware of all the things you say behind my back
To avoid it face to face its courage you lack
And now I come to you
Let the battles begin
Now that I have found you
Lets discover who will win
Threats are over lets see if you speak true
I don't care what happens next pain is nothing new
It seems I've gone to far to ever be forgiven
Now that this is done there's only pain to live in
No return no regret
I'm proud of what I've done
No more time to reflect
You'll no longer call me son
You seem a bit surprised that I've done this
I'm sick of having ignorance vengeance is biss
Angels No MoreIn her embraceAngels No More9 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I can live
With her caress
My heart is warm
And through her love
I have found freedom at last
What is more pure
Than desire from heaven?
To willingly fall from its grace?
What have I done
To have earned such a blessing
My soul cries for joy in this embrace
Closing my eyes I pray to god
Repenting for my life
There's no hope in the words that I speak
For I have not place on earth
Then through the tears of heavens gates
The answer that I seek
My Angel is coming to me!
Somehow mercy is shining bright
Reflected in her eyes
I'll never know what she sees in me
What I see in her is pure
I taste the truth upon her lips
She will always be mine
My Angel now loyal to me!
I am not worthy of this place
Blessings I don't deserve
There is no joy surpassing passion
And now despite all my sins
I hold eternity with me
Crying as I smile
My Angel has fallen to me!
Within my arms
Then by my kiss
Her mind can rest

but sitting here
I feel nothing
is it me?
Is it what I will become?
will this world end before I see the best part?
Never mind the worries
I fear if I worry I will forget to live
Live this life
without knowing why
without knowing how
I feel like the answers will only hurt me more
I feel like knowing the truth
will fill me with hate
will break my person
will destroy me as a human
still the longing remains
to know the truth
so why is there nothing?
why can I not feel?
Am I already dead inside?
Or am I just dying?

It's in your eyes
It's no disguise
Not the way
You'll never say
This is how
Than a self war
It's in your head
You could be dead
Be holding you
Safe from hate
I'm not too late
I'll rescue you
You want me to

"Please! I didn't do anything!" She screamed. Tears were welling up in her eyes. The figure approached her and leaned in real close. She could smell the dried blood on his cloak.
"You can't escape me. You will be mine for all eternity." He smiled the most wickedly beautiful smile she had ever seen.
She got lost in his eyes. His blue, blue eyes.....

Bad HabitBad HabitBad Habit8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I came home late today
You were there in a way
I had that same thought
It makes my insides rot
I thought all about you
About just what I should do
Should I throw it away
Forget about yesterday
Should I never look back
My mind started to crack
I don't wanna hear you anymore
I just wanna know what it was all for
So I can end this life with a little respect
Start a new one tomorrow but in retrospect
I figure I'll just pick up the phone
Because I don't wanna be here all alone
You'll just come over again with that evil grin
You'll make me give it all in to the original sin
I know it'll just happen all over again
Because somehow I always seem to give in
But one of these days I'll get over you
But until then I just guess you'll do
Because one of these days this habit will die
And on that day I hope I'm not the one to cry
The TorchHere I stand,The Torch10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
On the edge of what was,
And what is to be.
I have nothing left,
But hope in one hand,
and a burning torch in the other.
Here I stand,
Where she once stood,
So many times before.
Now I feel the harsh winds of uncertanty on my face,
Now I know how she once felt before,
Now I see what she means, now that she is gone.
I can still see her,
Up high, with all her beauty.
Just out of reach,
so close, but so far away.
Will she ever return?
That I cannot say.
Will I flinch and fall in the winds,
That is to be determined.
Here I stand,
Just as she so readily did before.
Waiting to pick her up,
Should she fall.
Here I stand,
On the edge of what was,
and the edge of what is to be.
I will remain here,
holding nothing but this torch.
May the roads rise to meet your feet.
May the sun shine brightly on your face.
May the wind always be at your back.
Untill we meet again....farewell love, a peice of my heart will always be yours.

and I learned one thing
the taste of blood
quiet similar to mud
though I blame you not
I do not wish you rot
you did what was right
that is in plain sight
though it pains me to say
I can and will go away
holding back this flood
this horrid taste of blood
The End of EvilThe End of Evil3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The fears of our world,
Starvation, maladies, war,
All like a group of soldiers
Attacking our world, our home,
Taking the innocent away,
Making their loved ones grieve and despair
As if their hearts were ripped out of their chests.
But, one day, these soldiers,
This burden on our shoulders,
Will be uplifted.
For we will come together as one race,
And will make these fears disappear.
Not only to avenge the innocent,
But to mold a better future for our next generation.
Then, parents will no longer stay up at night,
Worrying about where they will get the food for their family's next meal,
Children will not cry themselves to sleep
Because of being made fun of at school,
And a family member will not need to pray every second of the day,
Hoping their loved one was not killed in the line of duty.
Because, for once,
Each and every one of us will stand,
Hand in hand, side by side,
To stand up for justice, hope, and joy,
And our home will be filled with peace at last.
