When she was alive, Sloth had loved books. No matter what the weather was like outside, she could always be found in her town's local library, sitting in a corner with piles of books surrounding her like the walls of a castle. Some people had felt it strange for a young girl to spend so much time in the library, but as she got older people stopped caring.
With such a deep love of books, it was only natural that she would start to want to write a novel of her own. Sloth would have loved to write a book just as wonderful as the fictions she had spent most of her life reading. However, fate did not seem to share her wish as she died at the young age of eighteen; burned to death, surrounded by the very books that she loved so much.
After that, writing a novel had been the very last thing on her mind. Between training, fighting the Virtues, and exploring her new boss' massive library, she had almost no time to work on her own personal writing. Once,

from the darkness and hurt
from everything that scares you
keep going and it will leave you
just keep running away from it all
until you come to realize something
you can never run
never get away from your problems
from everything that causes you pain
it's always there, eating away at you
until you face it head on
confront what angers you,
what hurts and leaves you alone and hurting
don't run away from it
stay and fight it until it goes away.
9 11 poemMy tears fell9 11 poem in Free Verse More Like This
Wrapped up in memories...
I lost track of time
I felt so lost
And my tears fell
The day was cool and clear
All was peaceful
I remember it all to well
I miss you so...
And my tears fell
Wrapped up in memories
Now I think back to that day
And how the first crash looked like an accident
But now I know,
It was an attack
Now I know the truth
And then the second plane hit
Your panic-stricken face looking down at me from the 100th floor
It was almost as though you knew,
Knew that the end was near
Wrapped up in memories...
The explosions I remember all feel so real
Like they keep happening over and over
And my tears fell
I am lost without you
But you are gone,
Gone with the Twin Towers
And my still tears fall
Wrapped up in memories...
I will never forget you, or the terrible attack of 9/11,
You will always have a place in my heart,

The cold wind ruffles my fur,
The icy wind stings my eyes, is out searching for food
I shiver, and fluff out my fur.
A mouse searches for food.
I stalk it,
All my numb paws meet is cold snow...
That had been the only prey I'd seen in days,
And I missed it...
Suddenly I haer a crack.
I look up in fear, rooted to the spot.
I tried to run but I felt petrified.
The branch fell,
All I felt was immense pain all throughout my body,
The last thing I heard was a snap.
Then there was black.
Behind the MaskFor a while now,Behind the Mask in Free Verse More Like This
There's been a mask.
A mask to over my face,
So people wont see the real me.
Wont see how broken I am.
How broken my life is.
There was one day,
That I thought it was the right time to let go of my mask.
My security blanket.
I let myself feel.
I let myself care.
I let myself get hurt.
I've learned to much,
To be this stupid.
I guess old habits die hard.
Maybe one day I'll actually be happy,
And not wear my mask to cover it all up.

Listening to music,
Is like therapy.
The lyrics speak,
Class is in session.
As we listen,
We relate to the lyrics,
We fall in love with the songs.
This love will never let you down,
Music will always be there for you.
It will hold you late at night,
When you're crying your eyes out.
It will hold your hand,
When you're in love.
It will be your best friend,
When you are happy or sad.

God I hate myself, I wish I could pull trough
I hope your happy
I hope you're in love
I hope you hate me
I hope you move on
But I'm stuck here
All alone and cold
Hating myself, so much fun
Loving you, that pain goes on
Last year I held you
In my arms
Nothing could be better
god my heart was warm
But this year
I'm sitting on the stairs
holding a single rose
And that rose is bleeding
That rose, the rose you took
you promised to keep it
and cherish it all of your life
But those days are forgotten
That rose, was my heart
It's bleeding, it feel apart
I can't go on without some love
And when I read what you sent me, I just, fell apart.
The rose has its thorns
and they do sting
But I can't throw it away
I want a new rose, and someone who stays!
On this Valentine's Day
I learned that for me
And I love you

Cold as death she sits alone
A fallen angel still as stone.
People point and stop to stare
About her no one seems to care.
As years pass she stays the same
And taunting her became a game.
Then the blows and kicks rain down,
In their hatred she starts to drown.
Bruises spread like spilled ink
Still she doesnt even blink.
Time has numbed her, dulled the pain
They wonder if shes gone insane.
Suddenly time seems to freeze
She feels a warm, gentle breeze.
The people part to make way
None of them know what to say.
A young man with raven hair
Doesnt seem to see them there.
He walks with a certain grace
That belies his angry face.
Why does she deserve such hate?
they reply, It is her fate.
And as his eyes rest on her
His face becomes kind and pure.
His warm hand cups her icy cheek,
She asks him What do you seek?
Then he replies, I dont, Ive found
As he lifts her from the ground.
Suddenly shes no

Before I try to explain what I think the song means, it is necessary for you to know several metaphysical concepts. I got almost all of this information on this page from a book the band recommended on their 1994 newsletter called Nothing in This Books is True, but It's Exactly How Things Are by Bob Frissell. You can get more info in the Books section of this web site. The fine piece of literature explains that human beings are entering the next dimension or "Christ Consciousness" in which they will have 46 and 2 chromosomes. (Currently, we have 44 and 2.) This is the third level of five of consciousness according to Frissell. The fourth and fifth being 48 and 2 and 50 and 2. The book also explains in vivid detail sacred geometry and the future of earth. It is intriguing and a little unbelievable, but there is a lot to be gained if one reads it with an open mind.
The most important concept Frissell explains (He learned it from one Drunvalo Melchizadek.) is sacred geometry. Sacred geome

You don't know me but when you figure out who I am, I bet you well be proud and happy!
Today you told daddy about your little tube that appeared a cross after you urinated.
You seemed to be surprised to me!
When you told dad he seemed angry.
I don't think you noticed though.
You said later that night that you enjoyed and loved me so.
I love you too Mommy!
The next day, daddy had a weird smell in his mouth... He punched you.
And he hurt you. I heard your heart that soothed me to sleep, is now beating really fast!
I got scared. You jumped back and put your hands on me to protect me.
I don't like daddy. He is scary. The other day he came up to you and apologized.
I still think he is a bad man. When I grow up, I will make sure no one will hurt you!
Tonight, you didn't talk to me or touch me, or even sing. You usually do,
