Bleeding OutOne life, one world given to usThe tail of wrath in our reachHumanity is stupid enough to tug itNot just once, or twice, but many timesStill we know not of regret, but kick away shameCan you feel the dying beat of the Earth's heart?Fainting away, the wrath she hides is being unleashedCan you hear the winds' moans of warning?All too soon, the hell within will bleed out.Atlas's knees begin to buckleTo the weight of our iniquityToppling without our knowingThis world we build is a house of joker cardsSoon we will know of regret, unable to kick away shameCan you feel the dying beat of the Earth's heart?Fainting away, the wrath she hides is being unleashedCan you hear the winds' moans of warning?All too soon, the hell within will bleed out.Bleeding out on us.On us.
Reality Island I was walking along the rocky shore of this foul island. The waves smell of my dreams. The waves scatter them around my feet and then take them away, constantly tormenting me. Even the winds, my last comfort, have been warded off. They refuse to give me reassurance anymore. I look up at the sky and stare. A blackened tear rolls down the side of my cheek. I wipe it before the demons hidden in the leaves come to tease me. "I hate this place," I said aloud to myself, "I just want it all to disappear!" I run off into the forest as I could hear the demons catching up to me. I look up to see cranes flying up overhead. I hear the beat of the wings and my memories sweep me up into their domain.I look down and see the island far below me and realize I have wings. The winds are weaving between my feathers and the moon was painting my white feathers a blessed, ghostly white. The ocean spray feeds my wanderlust. I laugh in glee, a strange cackle coming fr
Purple InkThe music in my heart and the rhythm of my soulHave gone quiet and gravity seems to be working at full strengthThe petals of my worth fly to a place beyond my reachMy dreams took to the skies without meI try to fly, but my wings are brokenMy Escape is no longer an optionWho could rest while the beast of cruel reality stares you in the face?The phantom itch of my heart directing my pen, but why only then?My heart, a vibrant purple from the blood and sorrow,Seems to take notice of only its lamentsThe will of who I am gave up the fightA long forgotten sword, a beaten shieldGood on paper, but what of the person behind it?The pains and aches refuse to go, but fill the ink well for my pen.I try to fight, but my strength is brokenMy Escape is no longer an optionWho could run while the beast of cruel reality stares you in the face?The phantom itch of my heart directing my pen, but why only then?My heart, a vibrant purple from the blood and sorrow,Seems to take notice of only

Love is Not HereStars in the mystical skyMoonlight painting world in ghostly lightThe howling wolves have moved to a different mountainNothing there.Burning pillars in this fallen citySnowing ashes, from gold to greyThe eyes of the beast reflect these ruinsNothing here.Stairs that lead to dark treasuresEerie songs beg you to dance to your deathWraiths cackle at the footsteps of your demiseAre you there?Twisting, churning, this blackness of the worldSwallowing, devouring souls with easeGasping, weezing our last breathsScreaming, shrieking at the sight of our doomMourning, grieving for peace undiscoveredStaring, gazing before it fades awayChurch bell sings its miserable tuneThe mirror continues to feed our liesScale of Beauty has lost its balanceLove is not here
