LonelinessLong I've played along the plot,
On the words that friends forgot,
Never checking twice my line,
Every day spent in confine,
Long awaiting their return,
I always hoped but never learn,
Never changing words nor tone,
Every day spent on my own,
Singing out a broken creed,
Singing so I might be freed.
We Are ForerunnerIn our riches you will find,We Are Forerunner5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The key to what we left behind,
Hidden deep within the dark,
A single final glowing spark,
Our perfect everlasting mark,
Buried safely on the Ark.
But first we had to end it all,
And death incarnate - had to stall,
So we stood there side by side,
To stop the unrelenting tide,
Holding back the endless Flood,
That sought to taste creations blood.
And so the rings we did ignite,
To burn it all and end the fight,
It purged the worlds and all their skies,
And brought about our own demise.
I'm sad I caused the decimation,
Of every species - every nation,
Yet I pray you stand our station,
Loyal guards to all-creation.

trying to get away,
trying to ignore what they do,
forget about what they say.
No move I ever make,
can ever be one right,
every simple thing I say,
always starts a fight.
I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
the way I'm supposed to be,
the thing is your slowly killing me,
why can't you see?
I'd really like to run away,
where someone would understand,
to someone who could see my pain,
and gently take my hand.

This wretched pain drowns me.
This heart may be bleeding
but inside my mind im truly dying.
Maybe you cant see it.
But these tears should surly make you see.
That this heart is withering.
Just dying to be free.
Wont you please let me breath?
Cant you please just set me free?
This war keeps waging on.
These scars keep opening up.
I keep losing my heart and soul.
Set me free and let me go.
This cage keeps getting smaller.
This heart keeps breaking more.
This white flag keeps burning.
But inside im still fighting on.
But these wounds you make are getting sharper …
how much could one bleed on?

In this hell of sacrifices
Like mules bearing burdens
Far too heavy.
Our knees bent
After toil and toil
Our bones to our skin
As we starve.
It's who we are
We wait for our day
A wait for eternity
With sweat and tears
After days under the sun
And nights beside the ice.
We can't turn back
We've waded too deep
Into this river
Of toil and sacrifice.

Only the glitter of happiness, behind sparkling frames.
My smile it shines,
With the apples of my cheeks
But no one ever thought that maybe,
They might glitter with un-shed tears;
That frames only hide a picture
Of sunken eyes,
Weary and without sleep.
That a smile so shiny and crystal,
Can only be made of glass, waiting to shatter.

As I touch my heart I feel every thing.
Your ghost haunts me
As I scream for you leave me
I drink to my insanity.
As you fade to just a memory
As you fade from my memory
I drink to pull you back
To feel your touch once more
To feel again
To be whole once more.
As the wind blows throw the curtains
I feel your icy cold touch
I feel your icy lips on my head
As I scream for you to leave
I drink to my insanity.
As you fade with the wind
As your memory blows away
I drink to pull you back
To feel you once again
To let the flame within my heart
To make you warm once again.
As the storm brings me silence
I can hear the soft patter of rain
I can hear your voice whisper to me
The rain increases and your voice surrounds me
Telling me sweet words
The ones you used to say
The one that tore at my heart
The ones I lost myself

this tortured soul feels so helpless
these dying words may not reach you
and this feeling may not be worth spilling
but im dying and I just cant help it
but what im trying to say truly is that I miss you and every day is so full of pain
and im falling like these stars in heaven
feeling helpless and so lonely
only wanting heaven to come save me
and these stars and moon burn my eyes tonight
and here I am still trying to reach you
even in your shadowed light here I am standing wanting to feel the peace of twilight
always falling short of rapture...
what can I say but im sorry to those I've hurt
to those I've harmed
but here I am fully seen by heaven
just trying to reach bliss
almost there give me one last push please!
I just need that one taste of that divine light tonight.

naive and simple
always thinking the best of people
only to be reminded time and again
how deceitful people truly are
promises , promises.
That’s all they can make.
Breaking them, breaking them
time and time again
giving new life to this dark part of me
distrustful of everyone, the world all around me
who am I really now?
When I look in the mirror all I want to do is tear that image apart.
This darkness spreads its poisonous veins
no smile can hide it
no mask can mask it
I don’t want your help
I don’t need your arms
because all I can think is when are you going to stab me with that knife

The warth of your hug,

I opened up to you, telling you everything.

you told me nothing.
Nothing worth knowing, anyway.
Whatever happened? Did you just get bored?
I'm not always cheery, not always interesting,
but I thought best friends was more than that.
Maybe I was too eager,
eager to believe I finally had someone,

almost the closest I'd ever had.

Pain and disease
Are only a tease.

Where I can be free,
Where demons wont chase,

And forced my kind's descent,
You who killed your overlords,
And stole the powers lent,
For the Stars - we cast aside,
Our right to live - although we tried,
Now all I ask is time to tell,
The truth of how your makers fell,
Once we sought to kill your kind,
An act that made us truly blind,
Blind to see you'd ran away,
From what you couldn't hope to slay,
The monsters hiding in the dark,
Had sought to snatch your dying spark,
So we rushed to intervene,
A failure - so we should have seen,
The shadows shifting in the night,
Had come to force our final fight,
A fight we knew we couldn't win,
A fight to lose would be a sin,
Death had come to claim us all,
And us alone ensured our fall,
We used our force to clean the slate,
An act that sealed our deathly fate,
My people sadly chose to end,
The lives we could not help defend,
So now you hold our Mantle's laws,
So Save Us All,
The Stars are Yours...

A brick removed from friendships built,
Yet still he tries to stand and fight,
Against whats wrong, and for what's right,
The walls of freedom break and fray,
But yet he fights throughout the day,
His body weak,
His mind astray,
Now comes the time that Zack must pay,
The three approach,
Their weapons aimed,
For what Zack lost,
Now something gained,
For in his Heart,
He sees Her face,
His final wish,
A simple kiss,
The bullets come,
Zack welcomes bliss.
