WishmasterA whisper, in cold skies of old, dying stars
Is heard, and their lingering death
With not one regret turns and scatters in waste,
As realms of shattered humanity haste
To live and to burn out their breath.
Yet soon there's a scream, a small cry of despair
That binds all the skies to avail,
And one daring soul stands behind to convey
His wish to unravel all living dismay,
To bury his past and prevail.
And thus it begins, as no man can escape
The sweet domination of want,
While stars burn and shine, for so he allows,
The master of wishes that hastily vows
To bring forth desires to grant.
But no man can endure the cruel truth behind,

Do I talk too much?
Do I listen too little?
Are we just

Doomsday is coming.
We talk so much.
I hear you, I hear everyone.
But do I listen?
Little by little
we're losing contact
and the world is coming to its end.

unforgivably mapped by the hands of time
While placing heart shaped kisses on your thin lips
Caressing my spine with tap-dancing fingers
fine-tuning the strings you skilfully attached to my forlorn heart
The knot in my stomach only protests briefly
as I listen to the whispered sighs
which form subtle verses that remind me of lost poetry
entwined with a yearning
that pleads more than I can give
And I murmur that I love you
without any words
as I leave the imprint of my teeth

The long forgotten roses of decay
Have turned from life and now in death they lay
And make me want their misery to unfold.
The beauty that a minute they all shared,
The mesmerizing innocence filled day,
The sudden walk on roads without a way
And laying on a dead man's chest, they bared.
But all their glory faded as it came
With just a sweet remembrance as a gift.
Their iron curtain now will never lift
And all will be forgotten but their name.
I shall now mourn a minute for them all,
Their beauty and their weakness, their perfume,
A heavy burden they could not assume,
The sweet and bitter life

No idea where my loyalties lie;
I've been outcast by the people I knew:
I can't find anyone who will stand true.
I fought beside them for so long
I don't know where I went wrong
Now I'm left here alone
Never have I been so far from home.
Walking by myself in the dark
My soul is tearing apart.
Feeling longing for what I lack
But I know I can never go back
Even as the darkness closes in,
This is where I'm supposed to begin
I cannot live, yet I will not die
For I'm divided against a blackened Sky.

Who would've thought all this could be mine?
So long had I dreamed, of these days to come
These things that don't happen, they happen to some
So I favored the chance of impossible things
Of which the wind whispers, of which the birds sing
Far off in the distance, I could see it shine
I only wished that it could be mine
Deep down inside me, I must hesitate
So often I miss it, so often too late
But I couldn't resist it, could not stay away
To reach greatest heights, you must seize the day
So fast I ran towards it, so eager to see
That light that enchanted and beguiled me
I could almost touch

Beyond a cage of flames and frogs

Sing not to me a coward's tale
With sparkling eyes and living breath
Leave a heart like mine to steal
And let a silent message hold
Shield those eyes with ruby gems
Seek not for what is mine to steal
For in the night I'll surely give
A golden helm and silver spear

And sleep compels me to retreat
I grin upon the thought of my blanket's sweet embrace
As I slay the dim candle I earlier lit
Shortly, I am severed from all
To see light once more
And then I spot her, grinning widely,
Composing giggles of four
She invites me in her welcoming home,
Her hands, opened wide toward me
She tells me how fun it is inside,
She tells me it's something I'd love to see
I grin in anticipation,
And lift my hands to reach her
I think of all the wonders I'd see
Stretching my arms further
Then suddenly we are afar in countless kilometers
When we were only a foot away

In a place i'll know forever,
I will never leave behind.
But then cobalts call me, sky.
Life in blossom, firefly.
A smile once appears in me,
In rainbow palette,
With a wondered look,
a small sihouette.
Happiness, a burst of sweetness, joy.
Dash of love, and i am just a boy.
A spectrum, imploding heart,
there's no side to back.
Just need breathe, and be alone,

Beauty at day, shining arc.
Fades out away, It's a dream.
When it's not, during night.
Raises upon neon beam.
Now i am able to see.
Not what is, but what will be.

The girl picked up her palette
And retrieved her brush
Before watching closely
She saw her creatures gather
But without communication
She splashed a shiny brown
Onto her canvas
With small pieces of black
She added fine lines for string
And gaping holes for pipes
The girl carefully painted
Something on their faces
For sound to come from
With a delighted laugh
She created letters
And painted them into her books
And upon the minds of her people
She gave her creatures voice
With each careful stroke
And tentative creation
And hummed song
She painted whispering gossip

For the chance to be alive she said
That we battled it out till morn
A trade, she to be alive and I to be dead
But this deal, I mocked it with scorn
I fought with fluid accuracy
And she with jerky desperation
A pathetic thing, she did not wound me
While to hell I gave her quick transportation
I flopped back onto my bed
And sighed with casual relief
A pounding, pouding in my head
I gasped with utter disbelief
Demonic, satanic, a damned soul
For she possessed my mind and body
