"I know" replied a man with a deep sigh laced with worry, her father. Zaria hid in the shadows, peering through the small crack in the semi opened door. She didn't dare to breath, or she would be ushered away to her room. She squinted straining her to make out the other person in the room. Her father a swayer of a vast kingdom sat at his desk, frantically drying the drops of sweat from his round face. Tugging at his collar in a effort to cool himself down.
Zaria's mind raced in a effort to make sense of what was happening, her father was usually a calm, yet jolly man though now he seemed flu

"It's-She is here in-"
"Where?" He stepped forward swiftly and spoke with urgency. "Speak, man."
"Side chamber off the hall," the servant said quickly. He swept out of the room leaving the servant standing there. He strode down the hall and onto the side room. She was there. He stopped abruptly. She had heard him enter and turned. He inclined his head, his face stoic.
"Lord." She curtsied.
"You have the reply I presume." He walked to look out the window. He clasped his hands behind his back. She spoke from behind him.

Where was I?

I was suddenly aware that the bed (I assume it was a bed) that I was lying on was rock solid, almost like a table and the pillow was thin and barely offered any comfort from the solid surface beneath me. I could hear a soft beep of what sounded like a heart monitor in the distance but this was accompanied by the tick of a clock or cogs moving.

I may not be anything extraordinary I'm nothing new,

A shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. That's the kind of girl I am.
And if that is not what you want then it's plain to see.
You simply can't have me.

Sold your Mustang for a wedding ring.
You got married in a church,
Though I've never heard you say a prayer.
She floated down the isle,
Though she wasn't the one who caught your stare.
I sat in the gallery, hid myself from view,
Though I knew you could see me, you and only you.
You moved from the city, to live in a country home,
But in this big old house, you're bound to feel alone.
Two years on, you got the big news,
You should be happy, yet you're singing the baby blues.
She sold your records to buy a crib,
The last thing you had of the life you once lived.

He was dark and handsome, I couldn't help but stare.
And yes again I would be dreaming, in a far away kingdom I lay.
Only I wish it was real, I wish I could stay.
I could stay with you, my angel of the night.
Because when I wake, my dear you're long gone out of sight.
And I'm sad to say I missed you, for I wish you where always there.
But when I arrived in danger, you where the one to save me, I didn't need a prayer.
Your soft blue eyes were calming, even when nightmares stuck
Your sandy hair was magical; with

There is light on the other side,
To just keep on moving,
It'll get easier with time.
These people do so,
Like to lie.
What they don't realise,
Is they have been figured out.
There is no light,
What happens is...
We learn to cope.
We find the courage,
We find the hero,
Inside of us.
We learn to live,
It never becomes easier.

To be anyone,
Do you know how to be me?
I don't know how to be you.
I don't know how to be,
Any one but me.
I can't act like my best friend,
Nor can I pretend to be my teacher,
For i do not know how to be,

I have to be myself,
I have no choice you see,
For every one else,
We are all unique,
Which means we are all the same,
And each and every one of use,
Doesn't know how to be the other.
I don't know about you,
Or everybody else,
But I don't know how to be,
Any one but me.

Hoping that one day that would be his story.
All day and all night he worked himself to be the best,
Put his passion to the test.
Then one day he got a break,
A unknown fighter, against a flake.
With the dodge of a punch and the flick of the hand,
For the first time he was a winning man.
Notcied by a guy who looked like a bum,
Told he would train him, to be the one.
With the nod of a head and a shake of the hand,
Could there be a champion in this young man?
Blood, sweat and tears went hand in hand,
With new found titles, 'he's our man!'
He rose higher and higher on his winning str

Tell me boy, what exactly are you worth,
If you can't even remember his voice?
He was with you since the day of your birth,
So explain to me why you made the choice
To forget; to erase everything
And anything that you possibly could?
I still remember how he used to sing
For you on your birthdays, and how he would
Pick you up and plant kisses on your cheek.
Why would you want to lose the memory
Of how he took you to the park each week?
And I beg you to think of the times he
Took off early from work, just to see you,
Or those many nights when he stayed awake,
Cheering you up whenever you felt blue,
Or fed you if you had a s

Is it wrong to want someone all to yourself for just one day....
Just one night...
Under the moonlight on a secluded beach.
Or a day spent in Paris or Nice?
Maybe I'm wrong to be wanting something I can't have,
but I'm still dreaming of a life we could of had.
I've seen my dreams shattered when she's around,
My heart ripped in two, and I'm left feeling like a clown.
And I'm left thinking to myself is there nothing I can do,

A tonne of suncream, which never works, burned to the core and boy it hurts.
But no one cares when your in the sun, having fun, with the people you love.
Long runs down the beach, dip your toes in the ice cold sea.
Feeling free and happy, I couldn't ask for more.
Picnics at the shore line, with sand in your socks, no care in the world you have when you climb over the sand dunes and the rocks.

But I'm fooling no one not even myself,

The beggar on London square;
She is old and frail and has grey hair;
She hobbles to her lair
On London square.
Her eyes hold a wise twinkle;
Her face is full of wrinkles;
She still survives there
On London square.
In her hand, she holds a hat;
When a coin drops, she's happy like that.
Age is meaningless there
On London square.
With some joy as she ends her day,
She buys her bread with the coin that lay
In the hat she holds there
On London square.
With bread in hand, she sits and sings
Of how sweet grace gave her the things
That she was given there
On London square.

When Jeremiah woke up from his seemingly long nap, the first thing he expected to see (besides Hex and Nolan or some other people arguing like usual) was the hotel at their resort.
Instead, he found himself not at a nice hotel, a resort or even that disgusting bus for that matter, but a classroom complete with neat and even desks, a chalk board, and at the front of the classroom, a teachers desk and a pile of grey bags.
What ?! He jolted up in his desk and looked to his left and right, where Dai and Luca were sitting. They, too, looked confused. This isnt the hotel. Where are we-!

See the light, but as I walk it gets further away.
You are golden, but I'm scared to touch you incase you break like glass.
Why do I feel alone in a room full of strangers, why do I feel like the only one to walk this earth?
Inside my heart feels heavy, but my body feels hollow, one breeze and I might break.
I feel lost, I feel alone but yet I know you are there.
Please always be there.
