Through the endless tears I’ve shed
And bargaining with all the Gods,
I have been left completely alone
Forced to face my own façade.
With a forced smile here or there
And maybe with whimsical laughs,
I hide the ugly truth deep inside
For my family and friend’s behalfs.
They all say it gets better with time
But who will fill this empty hole,
Left behind by the man I loved
And who once owned me heart and soul.
They don’t know the emptiness I feel
Or the dark thoughts inside my head,
They see who I want them to see
Not the me who is decaying and half dead.
I’ve been told I can’t catch ghosts
And I know thi
Surrounded by the darkness
Of the eternal night sky,
The stars twirling around,
Trying not to die.
Souls always entwining,
In an unending plight,
Protesting their innocence,
As they continue to fight.
As the dust settles,
On the blood covered earth,
Oozing from the dark abyss,
Death giving birth.
Standing firm in her beliefs
Is a soul condemned to die
Knowing that her pitiful life
Has gone horribly awry.
She knows not of her crimes
Only the sentence of death
Predisposition is a curse
That will take away her breath.
With silky hair the color of gold
And shining emerald eyes
She looks into her enemy
And through the deceptive lies.
Many whisper in the crowds
Of her blackened heart
Not know that the courageous soul
Is ready to depart.
With tears streaming down her cheeks
And a gentle smile
She knows that it will be done
This self loathing trial.
So as she looks into the mirror
And steadies her nerves
She tells the voices in her head
Sometimes I look up at the night sky
And wonder if you see the same star
The moon shines so brightly upon me
And I know that you are so far,
My heart aches for you so badly
A pain that will never go away
Until you are once again in my arms
And with me, forever, you will stay.
I can still hear your soft voice
Whisper lovingly in my ear
Not wanting to open my eyes
Wanting you to stay near,
Even for a moment longer
Not wanting the dream to end
For even a split second is enough
For my broken heart to mend.
Now that you are gone from me
Time and distance do part
I wonder if you think of me
And the eternal ache in my heart,
I worry about you cons
Eternal tears of the final sorrow
Beckoning your last embrace
Silent cries in obscurity
And a soul to be erased.
Existence is a fleeting thought
Forever in the darkened heart
Lost desires and forgotten dreams
Broken from the start.
People say that life is a stage
for everyone to see
But I say that its a game
one that can not be beat.
For the world is full of injustices
and an enemy you must defeat
But once you fail at this game
there is no time to repeat.
No freedom to find, no extra lives
just pain and torturous levels
Where you do not get a second chance
to defeat the many devils.
If you are lucky enough to find the end
with many successful travels
You may see the higher being
That ends with your soul unraveled.
For those who long for understanding
For comfort and the pain
For all the lost loved ones
and the blood that stain.
For those who look for freedom
For who are lost again
For all who are forgiven
from all the pain and sin.
For those who strive for forgiveness
For acceptance of the past
For all the eternal love
that may never last.
For those who grasp belonging
For who may never care
For all that acceptance
is so very rare.
This is for you.
The night had ended too quickly for Shakaku, who had only slept for a few hours due to the night's adventure before. She sat up in bed, looking around and realizing that something was dreadfully wrong. Though she couldn't place it. She yawned quietly and pulled the covers off of her slender body and stood up. Then it hit her.
She slowly approached the veranda, her eyes locked upon the object lying in the very middle of the floor. A sudden intake of air passed through her lips as she crouched to pick it up, her fingers trembled as she touched it. She studied the bloodied rose, knowing very well where it came from. She dropped the ro
