Shana landed silently at the gates to her dark and desolate castle. It once had its shining grandeur, but during these dark times, the castle was a gloomy and terrifying looking place to be. With a smile, her wings faded to shadows before disappearing into her back once more. She closed her eyes and took in a deep breath of air.
"Home sweet home," she said to herself with a slight chuckle. There was a creaking as the iron gates opened by themselves. As she walked through the gateway, she found the courtyard completely empty. Like always. She crossed the grounds to the stairs and by the heavens were there a lot of stairs. As if it was walking on flat ground, she bounded up them with grace.

I thought you were my one
Does your heart still beat for me?
Do you find yourself thinking of us?
Will your heart sting when you see me like mine does?
There are far too many questions on my mind
Far too many memories to hold
I gave you three years of my life
Three years of love
Three years of everything
And in a blink of an eye you tossed it away
You left me to cry
You left me to fall
Yet here I sit
Tears in pools around me
Blood scarring my skin and heart
And if I sit and calm my mind
I can say truly I still love you

My body's covered in scars
Scars of hate
And scars of pain
I can feel the warmth of blood through the wounds
Every breath my body is giving up
I can't stand anymore
I feel nothing in me at all
My knees buckle out
I fall to the ground
I'm crawling to try to survive
Each breath searing my weakened lungs
How have I been beaten?
Am I now done for?
But something feels different now
Something seems better
My wounds begin to heal
I feel my body start to mend
But Lo how is this happening?
What can be creating this turn?
I force my head to the sky
And above me is the answer
I see the faces of my guardians
My dear friends
Now I can feel my strength
I shall now rise again
This time I won't let enemies beat me
I will not fall again
