    Post And poems goes here

    Post away! But why is so much poetry of today so depressed? Pff. THIS is classical poetry!

    Mock on, mock on, Voltaire, Rousseau;
    mock on, mock on; 'tis all in vain!
    You throw the sand against the wind,
    and the wind blows it back again.
    -William Blake

    New fanfic quote:

    "I am indeed a spy, milord, but not for the enemies of Mordor or the Master. Instead, I serve a different master, a group called the Protectors of the Plot Continuum. Milord, have you ever heard of 'fanfiction'?"
    "Aye. A particularly odious form of sorcery, by all accounts."
    /.../
    "Yes. And have you heard of 'fangirls'?"
    "They are but a legend! A fearful legend, but a legend nonetheless."
    -Architeuthis of the Protectors of the Plot Continuum and High Nazgul of the Ringwraiths
    From "Intelligence Briefs for the PPC: The Beginning" by Architeuthis

    As such, to kick this thread off in fine style, I'll post a number of poems of mine:

    Fallen Flag

    The sky turned gray
    The air became stale
    Everything we seemed to stand for had just failed
    Over run with a thick black smoke
    Tears of pain and feelings of disdain
    Run rampant amongst our folk
    In the distance a star bright shone
    On a country torn to beneath the bone
    Radiating in the darkness this star did guide
    Our missiles as they wrecked another countries pride
    Day by day, night by night
    We take our vengeance with a helpless fright
    Ignorance is bliss, but pain is not
    Will this flood ever seem to stop?
    Can this river come to a close
    Crashing its final blow in the deathly cold
    Oh, how can we be so bold
    To be so hurt when we were told
    That our towers would collapse
    And our pain be sold
    Amongst villainy and evil so cruel
    That they would dare complete what we have fueled
    Nothing that has happened can validate the actions
    Of a few select men who can't bury the hatchet
    And on this day we remember those who were slain
    In the name of a cause we still fight for today
    Freedom of mind and freedom of choice
    All anyone wants is for someone to hear their voice
    Amidst the chaos, the yelling, the fear
    Hold this day close but don't shed a tear
    Those that deserve them will never hear

    Forever

    There is a room
    At the end of the hall
    Where the sun shines like spring
    And the air bites like fall
    In this room is where I lay
    Lifeless and dry
    In this room is where I say
    Forgive me or I'll die
    In this room is where I stay
    I can't escape the pain
    In this room is where I pray
    And where happiness is feigned
    Forgiveness is what I seek
    It's what I need to breathe
    I'll forever live in seclusion
    If you give me what I need
    This is all I have to say
    I hope you take it with heart
    I hope your days go well
    For mine have yet to start

    Sanitarium

    White washed walls with pillow cases
    Surrounded by unfamiliar faces
    A million places Iíd rather be
    Canít find a way to set myself free
    Needles sting like treacherous bees
    Poke Poke Poke
    Choke Choke Choke
    ďCroaked he didĒ one of them say
    But they just canít find a way to make me stay
    Over their heads I float float float
    Out the window and onto a boat
    Put on my coat, full ahead bloke!
    ďThis ones lost it, pull the supportĒ

    Entrapment

    Trapped in the midst of jungle twine
    Creeping death up and down my spine
    Drifting in and out of conscious mind
    Whispering within the wind, the spirit finds
    A soulless beast encroached in vines
    Forever shall he remain this way
    If only to keep the demons at bay
    Still, to adorn his humble youth,
    Nor wealth nor birth their treasures yield;
    But he who seeks the flowers of truth,
    Must quit the garden for the field.

    Kinda following suit with Sorc...

    <u>The Damnation</u>

    The darkness is calling
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;The damnation of my soul.
    Deathís hell is falling,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;While the bridge of life takes its toll.

    The wicked slaveís deception,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;His voice bleeds infection.
    The pure masterís affection
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Sheds the light of his reflection.

    The damnation of my soul
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Plays the wicked voice in my head.
    The darkness wonít reach its goal,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Until the day that I am dead.

    Deathís angelís calling
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Upon the meager faith set in my head.
    My world just keeps falling,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;For this day that Iím now dead.


    <u>Ending and Beginning</u> (Written for a friend on his wedding day)
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Dedicated to Mr. and Mrs. William Paul Purifoy

    Here comes the bride,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;All dressed in white,
    But alas, I must say,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;This is the end tonight.

    What once was, is no more,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;For today, the end is nigh.
    It can be seen, quite simply,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;If you merely look into their eyes.

    Pure dedication to one another.
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Through their smiles, and their strife.
    This is the end of his, and of hers,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;But the beginning of their life.


    <u>The Duel</u>

    In the silence of the forest,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As the storm winds blow,
    You stand there staring at me,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And say youíre ready to go.

    Your piercing gaze is blinding,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As my glowing rage burns.
    I slowly stand up to my feet.
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Finally, towards you, I turn.

    I glare at you angrily,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;With a cut across my eye.
    As the blood runs down my cheek,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I promise you will die.

    I reach for my blade,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And pull it from its sheath.
    Weakly, I raise it up,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;But it's getting hard to breathe.

    My head turns to the left,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;While my right eye stays on you.
    I smear the blood across my left cheek,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And I know that I am through.

    I turn back towards you,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And spit blood to the ground.
    With heavy breaths, I ready my sword.
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And you laugh and turn around.

    I look at you in surprise,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As the day fades into night.
    Angrily, I flare at you and yell,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Telling you to fight.

    You glance over your shoulder,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And look me in the eye.
    You calmly tell me that,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I'm not worth your time.

    I snap and raise my blade,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And charge you in a blind.
    As the cold wind burns my eye,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;It's your heart I plan to find.

    You thrust behind yourself,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Your blade pierces my chest.
    My blade hits the ground as I strain,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Saying you're the best.

    Standing over my corpse, you think,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;That some will find you cruel.
    If I could talk I would say,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;That you only won a duel.
    <ClothHat> My sister started rummaging through my wallet

    Since Weiila has been so nice in doing this for us, I think I'll put up my latest "character poem":


    Changes

    Itís been so long,
    Since we met
    That fateful day.

    Iíve changed
    In so many ways,
    Even if they donít see it
    I know you do.

    Your love,
    Your spirit,
    Has opened my eyes,
    To so many things,
    Even my friends.

    If I never
    Say it,
    You should know.
    I love you,
    For everything
    You've done
    To me.

    Ah, Whatever.
    He returns, like a phoenix, rising from the ashes...



    ...with DRILLS everywhere!

    I'm not much for poetry...I'm the kinda person that would go to a poetry reading and yell that the poems don't rhyme.

    But all the same...this stuff is pretty facinating.

    In order to contribue something, I'll slip in a short (and untitled) verse that I incorporated into the latest chapter of Ancient Wizardry.

    Seas are boiling, skies are burning
    Sands of time are swiftly churning
    Plague and fammine spread throughout the land

    Deep within the blackest night
    Seek the one last ray of light
    I will be there, holding out my hand

    I'm not going to post all my old ones here for two reasons: they were written in something of a bad time personally, and there were a heap of them; I don't want to clutter this with the old. I will, however, link to that thread.

    poems

    I've got a couple of older ones that I'll post after I dig them out of my old laptop (now my brothers) back at home.

    Also, I'd like to note on the wonderful quality of everyone else's poems.
    What sig?

    <U>Weak</U>
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<u>The Duel</u> - Part 2

    Fresh blood dripping from your blade,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As the raindrops start to fall.
    An over zealous warrior lies at your feet,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As you wait for his call.

    You turn around and start to walk,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Knowing I won't speak.
    You stare at the bloody blade,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As your soul begins to weep.

    Through the trees you go,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Heading back towards home.
    You came here with an old friend,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;But now youíve left alone.

    The vision of my face haunts your mind,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As you release a soft sigh.
    The anger towards yourself for your doing
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Releases a loud cry.

    Reaching the outskirts of your village
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;In the valley down below,
    You feel unworthy to continue,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;But you force yourself to go.

    The murmurs and stares start to flow,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As the children run and hide.
    But you just walk to the Elder,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;With him you must confide.

    The pain is overwhelming, you tell him
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;That you just want it to end.
    But he says you cannot do that,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;There is time that you must spend.

    The elder says that it was my time,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And the god of death consumed you.
    But you must continue living your life,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;For your time will come too.

    If I had one last breath to breathe,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I would use it to speak.
    To speak to you words,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Words that would make you feel less weak.

    hmmz allright a few short and simple ones then

    Hell

    I can't... No I can't
    Please take my hand
    Lead the way
    I'm too scared to stay
    You are my light
    My guide trough hell
    Inside...

    -----------------------
    Same old feelings

    I loved you so
    but gave it all away
    And watched you go
    Cause I was to shy to say

    "I Love You"

    I'm going home
    To lay on my bed
    And think of the things
    I never said

    -------------

    Loner

    What I am is what you are
    We're all the same deep in our heart
    Some have the courage to show
    Others don't. That's no shame
    But you try to hide it
    So badly, there's growing hate
    Hate against yourself
    And me

    What's the use? What did I do?
    Is it my fault you're scared
    Of you're own inner skin
    All I did was being me
    And here's my question for today
    Do You Really Hate Me For Being Me?

    ------------

    ÜtrustÜ

    You don't trust me,
    Cause I've done some things wrong.
    But how can I regain what's lost,
    If you pretend it has never been there?
    Like I never did good...

    Did i always hurt you?
    Where you always in so much pain?
    And if so
    Why'd you always blame me?
    Is it my fault i'm not perfect
    Like I never tried to fuckin please...

    You never gave me anything
    And that's what you're gonna get back from me

    ------------

    Part of me

    I don't know what's with me lately
    When I see you I forget completely
    I stop and stare in your eyes
    And totally forget about the times
    When i was all alone
    Left behind cause I refused to be a clone
    I'm not used to it anymore
    To being alone in my room on the floor
    I'd give up everything
    Just to have you with me
    I Realised something recently

    Loving you has become a part of me

    heh a poem an ex-g/f once wrote bout me

    "Too hard to handle"


    <<<>>>

    Sucker you treated me like trash!
    You said you loved me but didn't meant a freaking word of it.

    God!!! What am I saying? It's me that treated you like trash.
    I need you just the way you need me
    But you know it can't be

    I need a soul 'cause I've lost it
    Please tell me where it went to
    so you and I can be one

    I know you're too good for me I don't diserve you
    Maybe this is the reason why we can't be
    You're like a speedball in combination with alcohol........

    Too hard to handle...



    heheh very subtle huh? ,,speedball in combination with alcohol''

    ah ha i found another old one.. it's actually lyrics i once wrote for a hardcore song it once suited the feelings i had for this world

    Way Of Life

    Iíve done this before
    Knocking at some door
    Crashing it with a shotgun blast
    Murdering you lightning fast
    Running away stepping in the car
    Then my friends drive me far

    C-Blunt Chronic-T mates till the end
    Us three nobody can make bend
    Piss us off and your lifeís a crash
    Within the blink of an eye, a flash
    The bullet going trough your brain
    That doesnít matter you were insane

    Anyways, this is the story of my life
    I think killing you ends the strife
    But first you gotta know my name
    Iím Lord Abortion, Ripping is my game
    I feed on the blood, sweat and tears
    They made me grow strong trough the years

    This way of living, drinking smoking
    All what comes in my way will be choking
    Iím an open mind with closed hands
    Around your neck till your life ends

    Iím not trendy, so Iím not cool
    Iím just making you a total fool
    Rip out your eyes at first
    Then drink your blood and end my thirst
    What the fuck youíre dead already
    Guess you donít wanna go steady

    Iíll cut my way trough time
    Never committing some small crime
    Violence is my second nature
    Hate is another feature
    Iím never giving this up
    Cause I never had time to grow up

    My youth was one fucked misery
    But thatís the past, Flashbacks cause agony
    The future Iím not talking bout either
    Cause Iím not caring for neither
    The present is what counts to me
    Right now Iím all I wannabe

    This way of living, drinking smoking
    All what comes in my way will be choking
    Iím an open mind with closed hands
    Around your neck till your life ends

    Something I wrote in tiredness and fever (probably not good, too sick to tell)

    Empty bed missing flesh green beauty two buttons smile whiter than the evil Aryan cloud besides me gone once there fleeting skin melts melds folds and bends bleeds and sings she cried out my name and now there is only the silent noise you hear after being submerged in calm water would she suddenly appear after blood stains sheets she'll stay there alone and dead I cannot have this cannot have the two black shoes walk into the flooded marsh. Squish squash squish squish they can hear you coming. There is no escape from them or Fate or Truth or bonds that have not been broken Damocles' sword cuts you or them decide the black screen flickers. Stern face appears content will all that has been done. Wait. There might be another that can finally help me rest but I have either not found her or Fate has not found us. I want to make her happy feed her purple ribbons and orange gravy topped with cherries or strawberry death. Eloquent in your misery yet at a loss for words when miserable, you sit here lids drooping moon falling from the sky onto an unsuspecting ground coughing your heart out instead of sleeping, and yet I would not say it was folly. If she will not get out of my head through words she shall flow through the ink on my paper. Burn the witch and hang me too bless me Father for I have sinned confession confession I'm thinking of the Truth the Truth must be let out for all pain to seace but some things you cannot comprehend it doesn't sink in. Or you know it all too well. I could pick up the phone right now and cleanse myself of Sin bt I won't for fear you might harm the fellow conspirator. Romance's elegy is more bitter than that of a mortal man.

    Nobody close to me has died. Ever. Am I curst or blest? Can I know what pain is, at my young age? I thought I knew before, and now I know I don't. Pain picks up and throws me down, I only know part of it, but I know it intimately.

    Why can't things be different?

    Because they aren't. Go to sleep.

    Written only two days ago, this poem was as a result of a long story. Unfinished, but I hope it to have a happy ending.

    <i><u><b>Obsession</b></u></i>

    Silent staring, hidden,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;From across the room,
    A subtle, sweet light
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Amidst the worldís gloom.

    Silently, a screaming sound
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Resounds throughout my mind,
    Telling me to move swiftly,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;In hopes that I might find

    You, who feeds the insanity
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;That drives my mind's recession.
    You, who is the object
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Of my bitter, sweet obsession.

    Revised for readability :D

    I posted this above- but... I decided to give it a little structure. Let me know how you guys like it. :D
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Empty bed
    Missing flesh
    Green beauty; two buttons
    (Smile whiter than the evil Aryan cloud)
    Besides me gone
    Once there fleeting skin
    Melts melds folds and bends
    Bleeds and sings
    She cried out my name, and now there is only the silent noise you hear after being submerged in calm water
    Would she suddenly appear after blood stained sheets?

    She'll stay there:
    Alone and dead

    I cannot have this.

    I cannot have the two black shoes walk into the flooded marsh.
    Squish squash squish squish they can hear you coming.
    There is no escape from them or Fate or Truth or bonds that have not been broken
    Damocles' sword cuts you or them
    Decide

    The black screen flickers; stern face appears content with all that has been done.

    Wait.

    There might be another that can finally help me rest
    But I have either not found her or Fate has not found us
    I want to make her happy
    Feed her purple ribbons and orange gravy topped with cherries or strawberry death
    Eloquent in your misery yet at a loss for words when miserable

    You sit here lids drooping;
    Moon falling from the sky onto an unsuspecting ground;
    Coughing instead of sleeping

    And yet I would not say it was folly.

    If she will not get out of my head through words, she shall flow through the ink on my paper

    Burn the witch and hang me too
    Bless me Father for I have sinned
    Confession
    Confession

    I'm thinking of the Truth

    The Truth must be let out for all pain to cease, but some things you cannot comprehend

    It doesn't sink in.

    Or you know it all too well. I could pick up the phone right now and cleanse myself of Sin

    But

    I won't

    For fear you might harm the fellow conspirator...
    Romance's elegy is more bitter than that of a mortal man.

    Nobody close to me has died.
    Ever.

    Am I curst or blest?

    Can I know what pain is at my young age?
    I thought I knew before; and now I know I don't.
    Pain lifts
    It throws me

    I only know part of it, but I know it intimately.

    Why can't things be different?

    Because they aren't.

    Go to sleep.

    Part three of my only narrative poetic quadriad.

    <b><u><i>Strife</i></u></b>
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<u>The Duel</u> - Part 3

    The pain of the duel
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Surges through your mind.
    The agony of victory
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Makes you feel unkind.

    The feeling of the razorís edge
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Swiping across my eye,
    The sweat and blood, rage and pain come as one,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And unleash, through me, a cry.

    In your dreams, the duel and
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;My loss will haunt you.
    While youíre home,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Your blade with taunt you.

    You slowly make your way,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Your way to my home.
    For your feel my wife will listen,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Listen to you and you alone.

    You stand there staring at my door,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Pondering what you should say.
    The door slowly creaks open,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And then you see her face.

    At her feet, you drop your blade,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And then fall to your knees.
    You lower your head and say to her,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;ďYou may do as you please.Ē

    She slowly reaches for the blade,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And you fear for the worst.
    And then she speaks so soothingly,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;While you expect outburst.

    She tells you that whatís done is done,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And you should not waste your life.
    And my memory should stay strong,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;But do not live in strife.

    Hades is lame
    And can't play the rhyme game
    He doesn't have the mind to be serious
    To sit down and respect peoples effort and time
    What a chump
    I bet his booty goes bump bump bump
    Every night with charlemange doin the hump hump hump

    Don't diss serious effort. If you can't respect the work, then don't post.
    Still, to adorn his humble youth,
    Nor wealth nor birth their treasures yield;
    But he who seeks the flowers of truth,
    Must quit the garden for the field.

    Here's something, it's halfway mine, because half of the lines are mine, but my dad played connect the dots with what I had on the computer and turned it into a poem. It doesn't have a title though.

    The kiss that lingered between waking
    And the last moment of a dream,
    A farewell, from dream lover
    A parting of the lips and a moment of remembrance
    A love that exist only in the dream plane.
    Through a dreamers eyes love is all around,
    Yet most will never find it, for it is there out of reach
    In a place between sleep and the consciousness.
    Saddness dwell in the heart of those whose dreams were shattered.
    Perhaps it is the dream that makes us truly lonely,
    And not how we live.
    Can true happiness be found only in a dream?
    And what happens once you awaken...
    The kiss is forgotten.

    SWEPT

    swept from existence
    taken away from my safety
    indulging in wrongness
    the sky scrapes my face
    clouds suffocate my surroundings
    rain stings my skin
    air is wearing me thin
    tearing eyes, and brittle bones
    are reassurance
    I'll die alone

    unwanted, chase me
    unscathed, wanna taste?
    drenched, bitter
    soaked, sour
    dazed - crooked patterns
    film my eyes over
    sober - half a year to engage
    swivel, to be unstable, to live like me
    never giving, never wanting
    never wanted

    when good things
    pretend to be haunting
    step on me, stomp you out
    rub your eyes, scream and shout
    encased silence, free sound
    candied dreams eat your heart out
    shattered cries disturb the balance
    of soft footsteps, are we alive yet?
    peer into a mind, take comfort, take choice
    misguide you to selfish noise
    glaring eyes and wicked grins
    detached words of sin
    deformed act of punishment
    my mind is set
    convenience placed
    to take the shape
    of misgiving, forgotten ways

    My unfinished Lymerick

    The noob to rpgc was a female
    that didnt check all of her email
    by the time she got back
    she needed some crack
    when she saw all the senders were me-male.

    The Razielim

    With wings of flame and fists of fury,
    Unseen avengers fly.
    Apart from the world of men,
    Free like the wind, they soar and dive.

    Darkness fades in their wake,
    Demons run in fear.
    All becomes silent, the air feels lighter
    As the Razielim fly.

    Nobody knows who they are,
    Or how they got that name,
    But nobody cares, for everyone is too busy
    Admiring their wodnorous feats.

    These avengers don't care for praise,
    They live to carry out their task.
    Fighting with heavenly fury,
    They appear without warning.

    Silent as the dead, fierce like a storm,
    Pure like the stars.
    These are reborn dreamers,
    Back to fight for the Light.

    Seraphs of Dawn, radiant beings,
    They are the Razielim.
    Bringers of justice, warriors of legend,
    Avengers of the Fallen.
    "By dreaming, we transcend and surpass simple life and the boundaries of time and space, touching the essence of eternity. Our dreams release us from the shackles of daily life and sometimes empower us to change reality."

    The final chapter of my quadriad.

    <b><u>Hero</u></b> - <u>The Duel</u> Part 4

    A horseís cry echoes through the air,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Piercing the silent night.
    A warlord rides into the streets,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Looking for a fight.

    He sends his men forward,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;To start to burn the town.
    Your angers starts to flare up,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As you strike one down.

    The new blood drips from your blade,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As another charges you.
    You swing as hard as you can,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And slice him in two.

    The final one moves towards you,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Evil shimmers in his eyes.
    With your blade readied, you charge him,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Releasing a loud cry.

    You stab through his chest,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;While he cuts your cheek.
    Blood splashes the ground below,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As your rage reaches its peak.

    Crimson paint coats your edge,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And your memory flashes back.
    My death replays in your mind.
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;The warlord readies his attack.

    The warlord charges upon.
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Your mind is in a daze.
    You feel a hand touch your shoulder,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And you turn unto my gaze.

    My smile assures you thereís no grudge,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Then I turn towards the warlord.
    You turn, and then I step inside you.
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;You raise your blade and charge forward.

    You feel my soul flowing through you,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Giving you my strength.
    Your blade feels quicker than before,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Even with its length.

    Your blades clash and sparks fly.
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;The warlord loses his grip.
    His blade is freed, and yours moves on,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Making his throat rip.

    His body falls; you drop your blade,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As I step from within you.
    I grasp your shoulder, our smiles meet,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Then I fade into the blue.

    Your smile continues, though before,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;You thought you were zero.
    My appearance and assurance made you know,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;That you are a hero.

    silly...


    Use yourself as christ
    but you will reap what you've been sowing
    push the ones aside
    but you'll regret it when you're going

    severed... silly...
    alone... hell...

    Severed like jesus on the cross
    Silly you reject the loss
    Alone bearing all the pain
    Hell is all you'll gain

    and these times
    are turning
    darker
    than you
    could ever imagine




    ... heh this just rolled out.. guess this could be for someone I know

    Blah, I wrote this a little bit ago.
    It's not the best, but I think it means something to me because it's...
    more personal than anything else (meaning I don't expect anyone to like it.)

    <u>Kiss</u>
    <u>By Steven Sherrick</u>
    When I look into your beautiful eyes
    I can do nothing but fantasize
    The feel of your lips
    The pressure from your hips

    The thought of me beside you
    The color of your locks, a golden hue
    The smell of your hair
    Even now, roses hang in the air

    I don't want to forget
    But at this I do fret
    My heart shall stay like this
    Until I get that kiss

    I pick a rose to offer
    But alas, I feel it improper
    You know not much of me
    Or anything I have hope for... we

    Maybe it should stay this way
    My feelings may eventually go away
    But my hearts yells at me to press the issue
    And my mind keeps telling me I'll sorely miss you

    Should I let you go, slip away
    Like so many others disappeared into the fray
    That group that rejected me outright
    All because I gave up without a fight

    I feel that this may be something real
    But I fear my heart would not heal
    Which brings me back to my predicament
    Maybe I should tell you what this poem meant

    right.. let's go again this is a very fucking old one.. but i dug it up yesterday and added a few things

    Dark Embrace
    by Chris van Zetten


    As we embrace the dark
    with the desire of being together
    we took the darkness for granted
    as it had always been

    In our foolish attempts in the game of love
    we embrace
    darkness slips
    right between
    you and me

    Our own darkness
    The one thing that made us connect
    made us fail each other
    and our paths led astray
    as we depart on to the next chapter
    The hunger came back around
    and the darkness of our souls
    entered the next page without us

    Rebirth of an embrace
    destined to fail
    and history repeats itself

    In our foolish attempts
    we embrace
    darkness slips
    right between
    you and me

    But still, I've got this feeling
    high on the wings of my deathbed
    there must be more, because
    not since you left... have the waves come
    and even with closed eyes I see you...
    Feel your presence, surrounded by darkness

    How will I ever forget you



    uhm yeah right.. as you can see I was inspired by Deftones..

    I didn't write this, but I remember reading it a long time ago and Perc recently copied it for me saying "I'd like it" and I did:

    A Warrior's Creed
    I have no parents-I make the heavens and the earth my parents.
    I have no home-I make awareness my home.
    I have no life or death-I make the tides of breathing my life and death.
    I have no divine power-I make honesty my divine power.
    I have no means-I make understanding my means.
    I have no magic secrets-I make my character my magic secret.
    I have no body-I make endurance my body.
    I have no eyes-I make the flash of lightning my eyes.
    I have no ears-I make sensibility my ears.
    I have no limbs-I make promptness my limbs.
    I have no strategy-I make 'unshadowed by thought' my strategy.
    I have no designs-I make 'seizing opportunity by the forelock' my design.
    I have no miracles-I make right-action my miracles.
    I have no principles-I make adaptability to all circumstances my principles.
    I have no tactics-I make emptiness and fullness my tactics.
    I have no talents-I make ready wit my talent.
    I have no friends-I make my mind my friend.
    I have no enemy-I make carelessness my enemy.
    I have no armour-I make benevolence and righteousness my armour.
    I have no castle-I make 'immovable-mind' my castle.
    I have no sword-I make absence of self my sword.
    -Anonymous samurai, fourteenth century
