Hearts aching with strain, screams of sickening pain,
Tear stained insane glares their cries pierce the night air.
'We are the things that run in the night,
The creatures of death that kill off the light,
Our screams are your nightmares, our faces your doom,
Within the shadows behind you we loom,
Here in this hell, forever to die,
Out of the darkness, on sorrow we thrive,
Bringing you anguish, we're desolate beings,
Shadows around you that aren't what they seem,
Caught in a warp of what we could be,
What we are and what we should be,
Making life's roads never straight,
We roam in the darkness, guarding the black gate,
Making you tremble, making you fear,
Making you writhe, while we draw ever near,
Warping your vision, haunting your dreams,
Chasing you down, making you scream,
Killing you slowly, you can't get away,
We hunt in the night and stalk in the day,
We are the fallen that you have forgotten
So we come like a plague leaving you rotten,'
These cries of the damned ring through the

I always was a good kid. I studied hard, and long, in my efforts to become someone. I guess I was successful, but for the wrong reasons.
My one true love, who will only be known as Sarah, left me when i was 17. I spent the greater part of 2 years with her. When she left me, I was crushed. Life just felt lacking in substance. I became a recluse, and when she left for another college far, far away, i saw my oppertunities for a blissful life slip away. And the fact that she never called again was the heartbreaker. I soon devoted my life to finding her, and making myself whole again. It all started right after I started leaving my dorm room again.
