Little BirdI dreamt of you last night, little bird,More Like This
And you sang to me your song.
We swam together in oceans blue
Before falling asleep in the sand.
When we woke at dawn, I smiled,
For beside me, there was you.
I dreamt of you last night, little bird,
And we gave to each other little gifts.
Something we'd both keep close to heart,
So even when we flew the nest
And we were worlds away,
We'd both still have these little things,
And we'd never be truly apart.
A Girl of AgeA girl of age,More Like This
With eyes that shone
With youth, and hope,
And dreams of a world
She would one day see.
A girl of age,
With hands that held
The sands of time,
Even as it slipped
through her fingers.
With hands that tried
To hold up the sky
Even as it slid from her grasp.
A girl of age
With dreams that swirled
In her head and in her heart.
Her eyes shone with hope
And passion, even as a
War raged inside her mind.
The RobotI am a robot.More Like This
My hands are cold,
metallic and lifeless;
but that is what I am.
I am a creation,
Though in my eyes,
the world, I have seen.
My veins are but copper
through which current flows,
My mind is a battery
which my mechanic chose.
He told me, "Do not fear,
for with mind so strong
you will never shed a tear."
I am not a normal girl,
whose heart beats with every breath.
My heart is a microcontroller,
that my creator made for me,
He said it would never cause me pain,
and I'd never know how
to fear death.
When the Sky Starts to FallWho will you run to when the sky starts to fall?More Like This
When the oceans divide and run red with blood,
And on your skin with a knife you scrawled,
"The worst things in life come free."
When the streets are too dead for even a shadow,
Eyes acherontic and mouth tasting of blood.
Breathe in the ash of the world around you;
Your time is running out, much too fast.
