We are the dead
Yes, we are the dead
Freezing, but learning.
So who are we now?
Those lost in savage Africa
On a quest for ivory
Our hearts full of
Oh, the horror, the horror!
We are without time,
Lost in time,
Or, rather, it is
The space-time fabric
Which is lost in us.
Yes, that is it.
And we, too, have our time
Just as the day
Or the night.
It is day by the blessed sun
Or, night by the blessed moon.
We say it is the moon,
We know it is the sun.
then god be blessed
For it has its time!
And winter has its.
To everything, they say,
There is a season.
A time to break down,
A time to build up.
A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak.
Yes, all that.
But what else.
Yes, we know now...
To be drunken off Soma
Or Victory Gin,
It is the best and worst feeling
We shall ever have.
And in the Golden City,
That is all there is.
And for a time, it is good.
And then they awaken us.
YouYour eyes see into meYou5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
like lightning striking twice
hidden beneath the depths of emotion
into the wake of a storm
whispered veils of silk and sensuality
summoned to dance the dance of night
passion steals through me
But still you see ..
You whisper into me
like soft kisses in a misty breeze
hidden beneath promises that you can't keep
into the ether of eternity
veiled temptation and discordance
summoned to the edge of understanding
sunset settles on my soul
But still you whisper..
You echo through me
like hate on a stormy night
hidden beneath the words of a sibyl
into the dying euphoria
blessed curses and swirling light
summoned to the side of the dying
blackness steals through me
But still you echo..
Mis-timedI look into your eyes, see the passions that you hideMis-timed5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So many things you'd say, if your hands weren't tied
It's always been the timing, that keeps us far away
When you want me closer, I'm afraid to stay
And just when I've changed my mind
Those hands that held me tight re-bind
And so the circle'd dance follows it's chosen path
The broken pieces of the heart, more then we both hath
Our hearts are always closer, then we like to admit
But the way things are now, perhaps it's time to quit
I'm tired of the fighting, and the way things seem to be
The soft look in your eyes hurts, when you see into me
It's like you fear our closeness, but long for it as well
Almost a painful ending, like a broken twisted spell
Your arms you wrap around me, holding on so tight
But deep inside, you push me back an internal fight
When sleep has claimed your eyes, you hold me so dear
But when you're awake, you push me back in fear
I feel drawn to protect you, and to run away so far
Chasing after you, is like chasi
The MelodyI could be your melodyThe Melody5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
help you write a symphony
succumb to the memory
live out the fantasy
like a song inside my head
remembering the dreams
folding into everything
As we rewrite the rules
I could be that melody
won't you write me that symphony
succumb to that memory
dreaming a fantasy
As reality repeats
Scared to approach
but I break all the rules
folding into you
I could be a melody
write for you a symphony
succumb to my memory
find my own fantasy
I'm on a roller coaster
The music pulls me closer
There's nothing left to say
better out of the way
I could sing a melody
backed by that symphony
broken that memory
created my fantasy
I could find that melody
a whole new symphony
let go the memory
I am that fantasy

His eyes pierce me
They see into my soul
I can barely think at all now
Bore into me
They draw me in deeper
As I long to be part of him
I crave their taste
Their soft sweet touch
Wishing for lingering kisses
A soft whisper
Into my very soul
His touches elicit loves hope
A deep timbre
Calling me to his side
Whispering wanton desires

I know what you truly think
Try as you might to hide your fear I see
I will push you to the very brink
You fool you believe you're so much better
Who do you think you really are?
Too long have I heard you titter
Rue the day, you fallen star
If death could smileIf death could smile, he'd have your faceIf death could smile5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
He'd offer the same fake embrace
Pacts sealed with blood
Broken before the final thud
No longer in this place
I've come to hate your face
Sterling intentions rusted out
Whispered lies all about
Spreading venom in your wake
Good intentions, oh so fake
It was always all for you
Nothing else would ever do
Slowly you stripped and mined my heart
As my mind was torn apart
Playing games with sweet desire
Waking up infernal fire
Driving me towards the brink
Making it so hard to think
Yet still I followed you, soul bound
Until the truth I found
I've found my way out of this hole
But all things have their toll
So you've yearned to be more?
Let me slam the final door
Love's loveI've always been the type to just loveLove's love5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I've been given many blessings for that love
I'm not capable of tying my heart to just one
Love to me is like the light of the sun
It chooses where it longs to be
And I just let that love flow freely
For this I have experienced great pain
But it's also been my own personal gain
Because if you can love as deeply as I
Sure, you may break down and cry
But you will feel a joy none can explain
Just feeling the tender caress of the rain
My heart may break in two
But I will always love you
Unconditionally, it's what I must do
Always, that way for you
I've learned that I am exactly the way I must be
And if you can't accept that, you can't accept me
So many things have happened between us
It feels like such a painful, wonderful rush
But the time has come for it all to end
It's time for me to let myself mend
I adore the curve of your smile
I'll always love your unique style
However, the price has been paid
The last dance has swayed
I close my eye
Beguiling wordsYour words you whispered ever so slowlyBeguiling words5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Soft sweet intensity Into my mind
Your voice thrills me beyond recognition
As my heart gives itself away freely
Beguiling me with simple words, just three
As I fall into your embrace again
Together we can face down anything
As our hearts finish crossing the boundary
Your touches seep inside as they thrill me
The depths of our souls, our eyes meet again
As words spill from my lips, sweet surrender
As we give in mysteriously
Emotions, that were kept pent up set free
As I finally speak my entire truth
No longer is this imaginary

His eyes stare intently into mine again
His soft wings wrapped around me
Seeing into the depths of my soul
The things that make me whole
The love I carry deep inside
For those soft moonlit covered eyes
I would give my life to touch him
To feel his warmth surrounding me again
His heart I long to capture
His wings always surrounding my heart
As he holds me so close
That soft sweet smile he shares with me
The touch that breathes the life in me
Freedom from FidelityIn the hopes of trust we feel freeFreedom from Fidelity5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Holding onto fidelity
An outmoded society
Seeming so true, seeming so true
We believe in simplicity
Feelings of love hidden away
Because boxes are too easy
Hide from our love, Hide from our love
Taught to repress it's expression
Only single exception
Within the bounds of sacred trust
Fidelity a word see
Refusing to accept loves truth
Lines drawn in the sand hold us back
Instead of seeing loves freedom
We hide away our passions hope
Not being true to our real love
Love is always a special gift
One we should share freely with trust
Not hidden in a box of myth
Running away, Running away
Free your heart and share emotions
Let your mind share it's devotions
We are not made to love just one
Loving are we, Loving are we
Remove the lines within the sands
Free your heart to loves true demands
Give up your insecurity
You can trust me, You can trust me
Let love remove the chains from thee
Love will remov
Love from BeyondI stand here waiting as I doLove from Beyond5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A mist in the winds care
My eyes searching for only you
But our time has begun to wear
The pain in my heart was already there
You've opted for something new
I've noticed yet another tear
I stand here waiting as I do
But your heart was ever true
There's nothing more left to share
For I am no longer a part of you
A mist in the winds care
The heart always longs to dare
But not the breath of life I drew
I was always dreaming of where
My eyes searching only for you
I know what we've been through
But I can't seem not to stare
A wispy apparition so true
But our time has begun to wear
My love for you I will always bear
Whether or not you knew
A love like ours is ever so rare
Waiting as I do..

Chapter 6: A man's point of view
We see everyone's favorite blue hedgehog blasting through Station Square at the speed of sound to meet up with his pals or Team Sonic as he likes to call it. He was carrying his gear in a blue sport bag. It seems he is in his regular upbeat mood. He stops on a dime as he approaches Station Square gym. Knuckles, Shadow, and Silver were waiting for him. They all had sport bags similar to the color of their fur.
"Hey Sonic. What took you so long man?" Knuckles asked while scratching his head.
"Yeah .It's unlike you to be late. Not a good example of a leader." Shadow looks away, not even trying to make eye contact with Sonic.
"What they said." Silver faceplamed knowing they beat him to the punch.
"I got a DVD in the mail, and the label on it said 'Watch out now.' I had to watch it, and you guys aren't going to believe it or like it." Sonic seems to be sweating bullets. This was an uncommon emotion

Sparks of memory between the nightmare
Leave me resting in a place of
It's just a simple question
A question that fills my soul
A question I can't even bring myself to speak
I can't broach the topic because it leaves me weak
to the simple rules
The boundaries that should never..
Never be crossed?
Breaking the rules
perhaps that's what this was
A way of rebellion in a world of disillusionment
Perhaps it was done to break the cycle of fear
that held me in it's insane grasp
something to keep me stable
and let me know I was alive?
wasn't there another way?
Did you think I didn't know?
I didn't feel?
I feel used..
As the memories slowly percolate through my mind
the memories, half asleep, half awake
drifting between this world and the world of dreams
but sometimes I was alert..
some things I remember clearly..
some of those things haunt me with confusion

Chapter 1: Lacing up the gloves.
Rouge led the group of ladies to her home. It was a two-decker house that was cover in black paint with pink dashes going all over the house from the outside to the inside.
"Welcome to my home ladies." Rouge opens the main doors of her home, and showed them the interior of her house. It was very beautiful interior. Everything had a nice black, pink, and white color scheme going on. Everyone felt this strong feeling from Rouge's house, it was a strange aqua that made see this place as another home for them.
Rouge let them look around for a few minutes, while she was looking for her basement door.
"Wow this house is so pretty!" Cream commented on the bizarre color scheme of the house's interior; she took a seat on one of the loveseats in Rouge's living room.
"Not bad for a thief that loves jewels," said Blaze, as she took a seat on another one of Rouge's loveseats in her living room. Amy, o

Chapter 2: Cute bunny vs. Sexy theft
Amy and Blaze paid Cream and Rouge no attention, as they tried to shake off their ring rust. They haven't box in three years. So, it's going to take a lot work to get back into fighting shape. Cream got into in the ring wearing an orange tank top with a star on it with orange boxing trunks. She finishes her attire with red boxing gloves.
"So how does this sport work, Ms. Rouge?" Cream asked leaning back in the corner she was standing in. All she knew about the sport is that only punching is allowed.
"Sigh I should have seen this coming," Rouge rubs her head with one of her white gloves before continuing. "I'll put it in a nutshell for you Cream my dear. Basically, we fight for a certain amount of rounds that have a constant time limit. For example, the basic fight can be three rounds long with each round being two minutes. Does this make sense to you?" Rouge finishes her short speech and s

the fears that drive you
keeping you apart
the mask that you wear
I don my own
fading back from transformation
dancing the dance of oblivion
curiosity refocused and caution ignored
as I lure out the truth from the belly of the beast
no more fear to whisper patience
calm sending waves of anticipation
as the gates of obscurity fade
taking on the lion
with an anvil
Inspired by the weakness
the emotions locked behind the facade
a fortress of inadvertent action
leading to parasitic obligation
inferiority and loss of direction
motivation fails to find me
yet recklessness draws me forward
as I tempt forth the beast
Why should the glory be shared?
when the weaknesses could be exploited?
using pure logic and reason I could seek a better path
emotions get in the way
Raw powerful and changing emotions
that long to sting and bite
the flawed heart
and restrained mind
Boxes and lines adorn the cage
tatters and ruins adorn the body
as still more is asked
redrawn for conveni
