Today I watch as
Another kingdom falls
Today I am once again
Lingering

The girl without a name
Without a purpose
All she does is
Linger

Century after century
I watch in the shadows
Feeling everything but
My own emotions

Given a curse
In the form of a wish
Everyone I meet
Is doomed to despair

I'm in school again
Repeating this nonsense
A girl's called things like
An "emo"

Someone reaches out
Tries to be my friend
Don't they realize
I only bring doom?

I try to change their mind
But they're impossible to deter
Before I know it
We're joined at the hip

Along with a boy
Who I often see blushing
We soon become
A team of "heroes"

So I use my despair
To gain information
For once maybe
This won't end badly?

They discover who I am
I try to run away
But they accept me
For who I am

A being without a name
For once finds herself attached
To the current moniker
Everyone uses for her

...Nothing lasts
I lose everything again
While time marches
I remain standing

I watch their descendants
Through the decades
I try my best to
Not get attached

Today I watched as
Another empire fell
Today I once again
Lingered

One day I meet
A girl of this ruined world
I know her eyes
I find myself lingering

Though I know it's
Impossible to achieve
I try to help her
Goal of a better tomorrow

You are the first You are the last You are the present You are the past You are my soul You are my light You are my life raft You are my knight New mercies each day You have given to me Because of You I believe Even though I miss the mark And sin pulls us Farther apart You make me strong You never let me go I know this because You love me so.

There are two things I Will never forget from that night: The horrible screams of people Running from their plight and The tears running freely Down my face. They told us nothing was wrong, Although their eyes were wide with fear. “Listen to me!” my father said, “Everything will be alright, Dear.” But the tears were running freely Down my face. “The ship’s unsinkable! This must be some mistake!” My mother’s face was grim And her hands began to shake. And the tears ran freely Down her face. I stepped into the lifeboat Not wanting to believe. I cried out to my father. He wasn
