Bard's LamentMy steps are attached to the ground that holds your kingdom. I saw you once upon a time, when I first came with my humble lyre to play some joy and some pain, and I never left.More Like This
I wonder ; forgotten princess, could the comb you once held in your hand now untangle the torment of my mind?
I wonder; does the mirror that reflected your eyes still stand unbroken; and could it take me where wanders your mind?
I wonder; did the two thousand steps of your castle porch kiss your feet when you climbed them for the last time?
I wonder; do the walls cry at night seeing you forever asleep?
And I, the poorest of all minstrels, I shall destroy my instrument and use its strings to make a bow. And send my everything to you, on an arrow, since I cannot climb up to you holding on your locks, like Rapunzel, or fighting the dragon like Sleeping Beauty. I will send my most beautiful scores, and maybe the touch of my heart’s ink will at last wake you up.
I will sit under your balcony, on the very spot

Old Vanity could be grasping,

Your heart beats sullenly, but alas, it leaps!
For whom your mind knows not.
To save it however,

Lady of NoneRomeo is not my lover,More Like This
For I am Rosalie,
And Juliet is a mystery,
but I am no Ophelia.
Will I be Dorine,
Taunting and guiding Mariane?
Or should I be as Eponine,
brooding over Cosette?
Will I be the Phantom,
crying for Christine?
I am not Cinderella,
Will I sit on a stool with hay for gold?
A kiss will not revive me,
not a prince have I.
Catskin is how I am,
Without the dress of stars.
For I am a peasant,
with neither dowry
nor a beloved.
Wings Of IceMore Like This
Wings Of Ice
Lay down my enemies painfully
Release all the hatred heartlessly
Another layer of frost maimed
I've become one with this eternal winter
I've stopped the flow of time in this one frame
My past and future have been torn asunder
I've frozen the pain within my veins
Never again will I ever have to surrender
I am but a reflection
Of every aimless sin
A casualty of corruption
So let my thoughts of vengeance unhinge
I'll reveal the face-
That you forced me to create
I'll indulge in the screams-
Knowing it's not a dream
Tears will instantly become icicles-
Allowing the scum of the Earth to cry is hypocritical
You're the taint that fell from grace-
You don't even deserve these snowy graves
You were all too careless
Always hurting those around you
Now accept the consequences
For the damages you cannot undo
None have survived
The vortex of truth
Wings Of LightMore Like This
Wings Of Light
Upon me is the last dawn
Faded away has the last dusk
I leave behind all of the rights and wrongs
I don't deserve an afterlife that is also rough
Mesmerized in deep suspense
As I await the final arrival
My tears become so intense
These last moments of hope are vital
Allow me to break away
Accept the toll of my undying faith
I was careless as I fell
Mocking life itself
Every secret I held
Defined a broken side of myself
An inner slaughter I could not defend
A one-sided war that I could not fight against
My downfall is what I didn't want to prevent
I always lusted after the idea of my final descent
Because I knew that in the end I would ascend
All I can really do is live this divided life as best as I can
I realized that the only thing in perfection is being broken
And the only way to get rid of that is to wipe out my existence
Shine down and shine true
I will no longer be powerless
You don't know how long I've been waiting for you

Bind me within your embrace
Bestow me with your grace
I seek your help to obtain the unseen
I need you to blind me from the light
Never let me see my weakness again
Blanket my fears so I won't cry
Cease the false hope from shining in vain
Ward away the lies that hide behind my eyes
Morph this disaster into a calm night
Burn the dying sun out
Darken the nightmarish sky
Let the ominous clouds melt
Lock away this cursed gift of sight
I no longer desire it
Shut out the world from you and I
I yearn for the abyss
Rip away my self-hatred
Bring back my innocence
Obliterate the life I created
And color this reality obsidian
Let the void consume
Paint my essence black
Devour what was once called truth
My faith is in your hands
I profess it all unto you
I am under your command
Cover up my exiled heart

Wings Of Fire
Send me off to the fiery abyss
Free me from life's grip
Morals have been tortured
Strengths have been reversed
Desires have been submersed and purged
I plead for you to pass the torch
Hand over the destiny I've been waiting for
Let me finish off this unbearable dirge
Weep not for singed sins
Leave behind the memories
Mourn not for scarred skin
Forgive every tragedy
Set ablaze that darkness within
Grasp onto serenity
Fuel the flame for the ending
Cling onto clarity
There's peace after pain
Calm can engulf chaos
There's love behind hate
Freedom masks weakness
I've abandoned every promise
I couldn't complete what was said
My hope cannot rise from the ashes
Please, do not follow my footprints of flame
They only lead down a path where infernos cascade
There is no honorable life or even death for what I became

She Runs with BeastsShe runs with beasts that humans hide from,More Like This
Lives in shadows that all life fear.
All to keep from coming undone,
To keep her heart unclear.
Why do people shun what is unknown?
Treat all like it is worthless?
Life can be grand, unless you're alone.
Then it is so joyless...
So day by day she opens her eyes,
To wish they were still shut.
Hour by hour she thinks through goodbyes,
Her broken heart still cut.
No angels can save he who burns,
He who cannot see the light.
No devils can face she who wont turn,
She who refuses to fight...
But beasts dont judge,
They treat you like one of their own.
Even if your feet wont budge,
They will keep their love for you shown.
So to the souls bleeding in darkness,
Wander to the riverbanks end.
They will creep up in silence,
The beasts will be your only true friends...
I See...More Like This
I see shadows lurking in the corners,
I see demons hiding under the bed.
In the mirror, I see a torn girl,
Her mind alive, her soul dead.
I can see her bleeding,
Staying in the darkness.
I know she is believing,
That her whole life is worthless.
Her face looks like a dolls,
Her eyes look like the seas.
Ignored, she walks down the halls,
Not knowing what she needs.
She used to have a feeling,
A spark that shone so bright.
Someone who made her want to sing,
For whom she would stand and fight.
She thought their bond was everlasting,
Nothing could tear them apart.
The demons, and phantoms all knowing,
No darkness could touch her heart.
Years they stayed united,
No matter how bad the fight.
But then the girl was blind-sided,
And the gruesome end was in sight.
The girl only wants to feel loved,
To feel needed,
To know hope,
To feel joy again.
So now the poor girl wanders,
Looking at the world with tear-rimmed eyes.
Nothing to do but to ponder,
Why her love had to die
Yes, I see

Though your tears make me angry and rant,
It hurts me to see you going through hell.

You made me hurt since the day,
You chose to walk away

Why do we try so hard to hide it?
If it's for competition...
Why can't we stop it when the game is done?
If it's for popularity...
Why do we still feel so invisble?
If it's for love...
Why are we still alone?
If it's for peace...
Why is it a constant battle against ourselves?
If it's for happiness...
Why is sadness still the only thing that surfaces, and our smiles are only fake?
If it's for relief...

Inside of MeMore Like This
Don't believe what you see.
Look deep inside of me.
Inside I'm torn apart.
All because of a broken heart.
I'm drowning in these tears I cry.
I ask the stars why,
Why can't I be happy?
I wear a mask to fool you all.
Because I'm afraid to fall.
These emotions inside of me,
Drive me crazy.
I don't know what to do.
To ease this pain inside.
Maybe I should just hide.
Hide away from the world,
From the pain,
From the tears,
And all of my fears.
But then I'd end up hurting others.
So for now I'll wear a mask.
I'll hide what is inside.
Inside of me,
Inside my heart.
You can call me emo,
You can call me a freak.
It doesn't matter to me.
You don't know how I feel
Or what is going on with me.
So don't judge me.
I'm hurting so badly.
Can't anyone see.
These lines of poetry are a mixture,
A mixture of my emotions.

Its the razor blade under their pillow.
The end of a toothbrush covered in bile,
Even a loaded gun stashed in your closet that was somehow 'misplaced'.
Its only the name of a crush scribbled over and over on a crumpled piece of paper,
The quiet whispers of where you snuck out to last night.
How you really passed that test.
Its the innocent sayings that hurt the most,
Pent up emotion that cuts the deepest
Your kin by blood that deal the killing blows.
Yet you continue to let them close enough to see the pain in your eyes,
Under the false hopes that instead of pushing you away,
They would accept you for what you are.
A monster of your own creation.
Don't try to change a creature of habit,
Never trust the wind to break your fall,
Promise you won't hide from something that is truly blind to reality.

Sanity turns to SuicideShe was pinned to the ground, hands around her neck. This battle couldnt be won anyways. She had no self esteem. Why live, when you can die. Claws pierced her heart, her own blood flowing out in a pool around her. There is no fighting back when things are this serious. You get one last time of hope, and when thats let down, you lose it. You lose it all. Your sanity. Your hope. Your thoughts. Your heart. Your emotions. Your mind. Your life. For this wasnt someone else killing her. Heck, no.
