Total Surrender of the Heart Total Surrender of the Heart
What have you done to me?
My heart thunders in my chest,
My legs grow weak..
I feel myself falling...
Your breath caresses my ear..
Sweet, wicked, sensual words;
Drifting through my soul -
Wrapping me in your fire...
You tempt me like no other -
Leaving me on my knees, begging
A proud warrior I've always been,
Until I met you....
Then I surrender -
To you, to the love
To the passion that burns within,
Threatening to engulf me in flames....
Never Fade Away From Me Never Fade Away From Me
Broken and bruised,
I was used to pain
And all the things that I'd given up on...
You give me hope.
A seedling perhaps of a foolish notion
Blossomed within my chest
Robbing me of jaded breaths
..That were second nature....
Dreams were nothing but fantasies -
Out of reach, out of time,
That I yearned for eternal sleep..
To never awaken....
But you were my guardian come to life...
You protect me...
Fight for me...
My light in the darkness...
Never fade away from me....
In A World So Far Away In A World So Far Away
In a world so far away,
A dream waits to be realized;
A memory longs to be remembered -
And a heart that wishes to feel once more...
In a world so far away,
A hope is waiting for its faith;
A love slowly begins to bloom -
Even as the leaves fall from slowly dying trees...
In a world so far away,
A glimpse of the sun is sought;
A life amongst darkness is norm -
While the stars wait to fade into the promised dawn...
In a world so far away,
I, too, wait -
For everything that seems forgotten;
Buried underneath scars left to heal...
With time never on my side....
In My Memory In My Memory
In my memory,
You are painted red -
Blood, passion, pain...
Vivid across what once was beautiful...
In my dreams,
You are my shadow -
Some days, I hate that I love you
And that you were my ruin...
In my eyes,
What was seen -
Cannot be unseen;
I often long to wish away the visions
That swim before my mind's eye....
In my heart,
My poor, broken, yet still beating heart -
Lies an emotion...
That one day
Will be my downfall....
The more I want to forget you,
The more that I remember...
But, I need to forget....
I once lived without you...
So why now does it seem so hard to
Now that you're gone?
Never Again Never Again
I want to hurt you...
As badly as you hurt me -
I want to scream at you, "Why?"
But it will never change the fact it happened;
Nor erase this throb in my chest...
I was a fool for believing in you -
Hoping too much...
Baring too much of my heart and soul
Only for you to crush it like a flower
Left alone in the rain....
I was just a game you played -
A toy you got off on using,
I want to forget you ever existed
But right now, I can't...
The tears are my mourning period,
For the person I thought I knew -
The one I willingly gave my heart to,
That I thought I could also call friend...
The Broken HeartThe Broken Heart
I guard my heart for a reason..
Now you remind me why
I had to protect myself...
For fear of falling,
And being broken....
You can just leave;
I don't want any more promises -
Of hollow words and praise
That built me up,
Only to leave me hanging...
If you were hoping that I would stay,
The truth is, I'd rather be left -
Because I no longer want to be hurt
And killed by kindness
To a punishment I didn't deserve....
....Just for loving you.
You call meYou call me a freak
I say I'm unique
You call me crazy
I say sanity is overrated
You call me a sissy
I say I'm sensitive
And proud of it
You call me depressed
I say it's true
But I'm not ashamed of it
Five AMPre-dawn darkness again, seething, quiet
A monster hugging the city
How heavy, how suffocating it is
The clock has run down on time for dreaming
A void between night and morning
Ready to swallow everything up
A time for old men's reflections
On love, and loss, and sorrow
Oppressive black sky, you eat everything
But the all-night diner
Where lonely old men sit
Drinking coffee at five AM
QuicksandYou trapped me
Dragged me below the surface
And held me there
You chained me
Put brass around my ankles
And left me struggling
You broke me
Beat me with whips made of hate
And hurt me more
You changed me
Made me who you wanted
And killed me inside
You hid me
Stole me away from the light
And made me blind
You crushed me
Blew my dust in the wind
And danced on my grave
surrounding my body
And now I'm twenty feet under
With no chance of being saved
From Your 'Secret' AdmirerHeaven,
this is not a love letter
I will swear to God,
with a halo on my head
and a hole in my heart.
But the fact is I revere you
more than I have any right to.
After all, we are nothing except
who have awkward conversations.
So why is it that every time the line
falls silent I panic, worrying that your shadow
will make my efforts nothing but a distant memory,
when every word you speak strongly marks my mind?
Simple: I fear having something to lose
and losing the nothing I have. You are a
treasure to me, and this note becomes my confession.
Sincerely- I typed this, but I'm sure you'll recognize the handwriting.

Death, Judgment, RebirthLast Time in the ICU
Shadow rats, beady red eyes focused hungrily
Stay still too long and they’ll swarm
Sharp little teeth rending flesh
They know the sick and weak
They can wait
Tenth floor ICU, down with the disease again
He’s resting quietly, the nurse says
She looks like a huge black rat
Does she know what’s happening?
Closing the door
She walks away
Sweet childhood dreams are interrupted
Rats gnawing away at the edges
Toothy little kisses all over
Cleaning, cleansing scurry
Down to the bone
Sentenced to Live
Firelight, poker-faced patchwork man reading aloud
An old but vaguely familiar tome, his tone is somber
Was I one of the wicked? Weren’t we all?
Who can say that they were good?
Sentenced to live yet another life
I cry; I’ve had enough living
I want to sleep forever, leave my shell behind
To crumble to dust, useless, I won’t need it
Every door opens to the same world
Is this hell, then? The onl

that warms my body,
that stokes my heart.

Between Dawn and Dusk Between Dawn and Dusk
Standing in the darkening shadows
I await Night to wrap her cloak across the sky
As the Sun kisses the clouds sweetly
It is at this time that I understand....
That Light makes way for Dark....
They have a partnership, the Sun and the Moon
Each agreeing to beautify the sky with their glory
The clouds belonging to Day and Night
The stars ever present...
I also stand and watch the Night give way to morn;
The Sun's sleepy rays poking through...
Swirls of purples, pinks, oranges
Each beautiful color heralding its arrival...
And just as the day before....
The Dark makes way for the Light....
The beauty of the sky doesn't lie solely with the Sun;
Nor does it rely upon the Moon;
They make a blissful merger between dawn and dusk
And paint the world with their magnificent rays....
Now I see how you and I are meant to be...
As I am the Light, and you are the Dark
Relying upon another, willing to let the other shine
When it is our time to glow,
We will burn the brightest
Twenty-three years before the crippling of Crown Prince James III
He was fourteen and she was probably aged about the same, give or take a few years. It had been an hour since he'd met her.
He hated her already.
She scowled behind him and likely shared the sentiment as they scampered up the hillside in a desperate attempt to escape the roaring mob that seemed to be growing perpetually larger and coming ever-closer. Gabriel would have liked to say that it was all her fault he was in this situation, though it was his careless nicking ofwhat was it? A chicken that started the first old woman running, but how was he supposed to know that she'd stumble and fall and everyone else would think he'd assaulted her?
He hadn't. He'd taken the chicken, snapped its neck and run, because he hadn't eaten meat in weeks and he was starting to feel the affects on his already weak limbs.
This is what happens, he thought. This is what happens when you live like th
