Chapter 1: Power is Everything
Peace was a concept long forgotten in the cold and dismal hearts of those that inhabited earth. In order for one to achieve such ideals, blood had to be shed in the name of the righteous as victory screamed and howled through the hollow darkness and void. Even with the idea that peace could be achieved, there would be those who strive for much darker deeds with cruel intentions. Those with power ruled with an iron fist and did not show mercy to those that sought out to achieve their dreams. It seemed that those with power, always craved and hungered for more, seeking out to destroy and crush the bright eyed and weary hopes of those that believed with their hearts that there was good in everyone.
Power is potent. It is an invisible source that granted those who were strong enough to handle it, infinite possibilities. Though in essence a wonderful, thriving achievement, power can turn a hopeful pure heart into a

under her weary eyes.
Like the couplet
strung around her necklace
with teeth marks -
jewels impressed into
the vast expansive sky
of her laden shoulderbones.
The bruise darkens
and the stars seem impossible.
Too far away
and smiling a long dead smile.
But somewhere a pomegranate lip,
swollen with the disdain
that he made her swallow -
somewhere, those lips
find the courage to say

If Truth had a tongue
All your armies, all your men
All your hate, against a pen
Cold still coffee
Against a boy- stone in hand
Tightening hands on rubber band
In his eyes see brightening hope
To strengthen (still) the breaking rope
Of justice, rights and human love
As airplanes hover up above
And I wonder, hands are shaking
Faith is crumbling, words are breaking
Torn up hope and spirits broken,
Muting people when words are spoken,
Time is racing against a pen,
And I wonder once again,
Who is weak, and who is strong?
Who is right, and who is wrong?
And I wish, whilst blood is dripping
Chains are beating, whips are whipping
See the image- bleeding men
Hear the clock chime- broken pen
Again I wonder and I wish
If only the truth had words to speak
Words to tell when days are bleak

if I watched me bleeding I´d know I´m still alive
-but this is definitely not being alive
this is just inhaling something which
is called oxygen but feels like water,
just opening and closing a pair of empty eyes,
this is just unsealing a mouth
and pronoucing meaningless syllables
and this is just distorting my lips and
labeling it a smile
I am just too
rational to give up because
that would be what the world wants
and there is a rebellious rest inside of me left
which just wants to protest
scream my head off till the deafs will pay attention
and laugh so hard I won´t feel a tear anymore
like it´s my first breath
because when you smile like this,
I feel like I could even breathe

you're a dirty liar.
You seemed plenty ready yesterday...
a measly four weeks later.
I wanted a relationship...
you didn't even try 'er.
You kept flirting, eyelash batting...
a dirty instigator.
I believed every single word...
you hid the truth so well.
No "I don't like you that way..."
very much obliged.
And I can't cry, and I can't feel...
locked in your satisfied hell.
I hope that you'll be happy now...
parts of me have died.

for who takes the blame, who've done what was said
But all I hear,
is silence instead
I look at my hands,
they're painted with red
I pray for a sound,from those of the dead
But all I hear,
is silence instead
On my walls, the days are written
There are none that haven't been said
I look up, for a sign,
for the tears I've cried
But all I hear,
is silence instead
I take an object to my head
Whisper my final words
I pull the trigger
Silence is heard
The Only ReasonA thousand reasons to cryThe Only Reason4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With the tears rolling away
Each and every day
Reasons to live and die
A thousand reasons to smile
Could it be something that could never break?
Maybe it's just a mask; something so fake?
It's hard to tell, it's been awhile.
A thousand reasons to fade
The unwillingness to go on
The motivation is already gone
I stay in a place they forbade
A thousand reasons to feel this flame
An emotion that could never die
An emotion that makes me ask "why?"
Why is this all the same?
A thousand reasons I do not need.
The only reason I need is You

don´t rest for long on the reflective surface
but they return to the black mountains and white fields,
like a painter, looking at the virgin canvas
untouched yet, but soon bursting with colours
In complete silence
he takes a breath,
lowering his gaze, humbly,
his slim fingers falling onto the keys like silk scarves,
before they´ll fly like the wind-
he´s focussing his concentration for a few seconds
sharpening his high-precision mind like a knife blade
Before letting go
Symphony takes over its eternal reign
filling the halls with coloured light
and crystalline symmetry makes
the stars start singing
He lights up rainbows, enlightening the domes
every note like a sunray flooding the air
It´s raining glassy pearls
like a waterfall in the valleys of harmony
And the world
stops rotating for a moment
to listen to
while he´s floating above the skies
And when the dance is over
The sound died away
Everything rests for a mom
Love is..Love is not all that it seems,Love is..4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's less of a reality and more of a dream.
One big illusion to blind your eyes,
and all it brings is heartbreak and demise.
It troubles your heart and makes you feel sad,
and despite all the joy it still turns out bad.
The one single emotion that breaks down your heart,
you may think it's special but it'll tear you apart.
It plays with your mind and muddles your brain,
but despite all the torment you'll love yet again.
Another bright soul left alone in the dark,
a victim of love with a scar on their heart.

It's something in all of us,
different but still the same.
It's a way of expression;
some times normal,
well some times strange.
It's a feeling that you have;
or sometimes sad.
It's a curse,
or a blessing.
It makes you lose yourself,
or helps you discover who you truly are.
It's something that will always happen,
whether like it or not.
But something that can't be controlled,
or be freed.
But always be happy,
that you can love.

Dying HeartThe silence screams so loud I can't hear myself say:Dying Heart4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I loved you with all of my heart.
I cried continuously, I wanted you to stay,
But as I wanted you more, we fell apart.
So far from each other, we don't talk;
Barely look at me as you pass me in the hall...
You make as if you don't see me walk,
Walk right by you, you don't notice at all.
Now I've moved on, I guess you did too -
I don't want you so bad no more.
The butterflies are gone, they left with you;
My dying heart beats one last time on the floor.

Flowers and bows.
A long time ago.
Blue in his eyes.
And stars now, too.
So far away.
He begs me to stay.
But I'm already gone.
Always something wrong.
Forget the tears,
Forget the smile.
I will die
Forget the laughter,
Forget the pain.

You know you got it,
As I succumbed to your beauty.
Living in your dream.
Each word, Rapturous;
Cuz I wasn't listening.
Each blow, pleasurous;
Cuz I had stopped feeling.
The mystry finally unfolds.
Your dreams were nightmares all along,
That I failed to see.
Shielded from the truth,
Due to my misjudgements of your fantasy.
Each word, filthy, tainted;
For now I heed to them.
Each blow filled with anguish, agony;
For now I start to throb.
I gave you everything,
But after all I've done,
I still can't get through to you.
So now I take a step,
Pick up the pieces lying on the ground.
Now the truth so clear before me.
I'll be gone in a blink of an eye.
It happens all the time...
DepressionThe pressure inside building,Depression4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Forcing against the cranial wall,
Too many thoughts of degredation,
Self abuse and longing to fall.
Distorted images of goodness,
Twisted into pain and torment,
Relentlessly pushing forward,
Closing the mind to this lament.
Darkness sheilds the soul,
Refusing to release it's grip,
Drawing deeper into despair,
From the chalice of the damned now to sip.
The depths of this world grow cavernous,
Harder to scale the sides each day,
But from the underworld of depression,
I will conquer and find my way.

when my legs are broken
i am grendel and like some monster under
the bed my soul is shunned from sparrow songs
and cleaner groves
will my footsteps kill trees and river spirits?
i am a birdman with vocal chords that were hung
from a thousand trees and now i cannot speak
so i just write
sad words and sewer words and animal words and evil words
and soon my wings will be clipped so i cannot fly
and i will instead have to crawl and shed my skin
in the middle of road with my words trailing behind
me before i slither into a lake
i am a beast with claws and animal grunts and growls
and screams and an inescapable need to destroy prison
bars that are melded around my feet with my tail hiding
between my legs
and my wings are gone and my chords are missing and
my legs have been torn off and now i'm searching for
something more beautiful than planets and moons and

And a cheap plastic light,
I pull my coat closer,
I'm cold, but I'm alright,
You see my mommy promised,
She'd be back when she could,
To pick her little girl up,
And told me to be good,
It's been hard to stay hidden,
Since I don't belong here,
But my Kitty taught me how to hide,
How to disappear
So I'll sleep here at the playground,
In this little plastic cave,
With my Kitty right beside me,
And the promise that she gave.
