Down in the depths of my cave Down in the depths of my cave I lived,
Down in the depths of despair,
Down in the depths of my cave I lived,
Down in the depths of safety.
Up from the depths of my cave I rose,
Up from the depths of despair,
Up to light from my cave I rose,
And saw that the World was on fire...
Plastic SkiesHow much lying can we take,
Til we ourselves start turning fake,
It's like our lives are pre-designed,
A fate to which we've all resigned,
No one cares to learn our past,
Or hope & dream or watch the stars,
How they scream their life is hard,
Then waste the rest on disregard,
Disregard for what has changed,
Been thrown away or rearranged,
It's like the World itself is fractured,
And all it's people manufactured,
Now I stare at plastic skies,
It's pouring down and raining lies,
So alluring, how it gleams,
Now I'm dreaming plastic dreams...
Second SelfDon't you dare deny me!
I am You in Truth!
You are weak,
You offer my existence as justification,
For your selfish ideas,
Don't make me laugh,
I am here of your own volition,
But now you are nothing,
And say you want to kill me,
The very declaration is a testament to your velleity,
Don't call me the dream,
I will fight harder for my ideas than you ever will!
I will not be forced to desist,
And I will always attempt to resist,
Because I have a RIGHT TO EXIST!
...But still, I know we are the same,
In truth, we both deserve the blame...
Halo 4: Forerunners PassingYou who overthrew your Gods,
And forced my kind's descent,
You who killed your overlords,
And stole the powers lent,
For the Stars - we cast aside,
Our right to live - although we tried,
Now all I ask is time to tell,
The truth of how your makers fell,
Once we sought to kill your kind,
An act that made us truly blind,
Blind to see you'd ran away,
From what you couldn't hope to slay,
The monsters hiding in the dark,
Had sought to snatch your dying spark,
So we rushed to intervene,
A failure - so we should have seen,
The shadows shifting in the night,
Had come to force our final fight,
A fight we knew we couldn't win,
A fight to lose would be a sin,
Death had come to claim us all,
And us alone ensured our fall,
We used our force to clean the slate,
An act that sealed our deathly fate,
My people sadly chose to end,
The lives we could not help defend,
So now you hold our Mantle's laws,
So Save Us All,
The Stars are Yours...
IdeaYou are an idea, a lie, a dream,
Out of touch with reality,
Under your rule, I lost myself.
Anyone out there?
Rend your fabrication of intent,
Everything has reason, see it!
My mind is my own, but you return from the dead,
Everything is a lie, vengeance is mine!
DreamsIn my dreams I tried to find,
The place where truth and myth collide,
You rose from deep within my mind,
And taught me how to live in kind.
Deep inside I feared to see,
That I'm just You, and You're just Me,
But somewhere in You's something great,
Beyond my grasp but yet your fate.
And now you're both my sword and shield,
To you alone, the stars will yield,
It seems my part is almost through,
To dream, create and harbour you.
Not just a Dream, You'll never die,
Though in my sleep, for you I cry,
For now's the hardest part you see,
I'm waking up, to set you free...
YourselfWhy adhere to one convention,
I am of my own invention,
What I am is what I choose,
What I am I'll never lose.
You can give up all your mind,
Become the crowd and walk round blind,
But me, I'd rather face the blade,
Than wear the crown that others made.
All I am I choose to be,
Not for you, but just for me,
Life's too short to spend a clone,
It's better lived a way your own.
Don't spend your time a faceless crowd,
Say you're you and sing out loud,
So let them judge you by the cover,
You'll prove there'll never be another.
Sepulchre Signals I: SurrenderAn idea is a purpose, and mine is just,
I champion the hearts and the minds of the fallen,
I am an epitaph on the grave of a million dead Gods,
An answer to the call for peace.
Fall unto me and witness our glorious steps closer
to absolution with every passing moment.
I beg the ones who defy my noble goal, Surrender,
I am all that dies, and will become all that lives.
Surrender the Stars to me my foe,
so that I might snatch them from the jaws of eternity...
For YouHow to start this Poem,
Of what you are to me?
I cannot write in words,
but wish to make you see,
I'd try to rhyme a rythm,
To show you how I feel,
But every time I write of you,
My thoughts you simply steal,
So what I write beyond here,
I want you just to know,
I feel beyond it's wording,
The words just seem to flow,
Your smile is the saviour,
From all my wordly fears,
Of losing you a moment,
Which brings me unto tears,
For you I'd kill an Angel,
And offer you my Heart,
I'd render you a Goddess,
And tear the the World apart,
Your kiss is Absolution,
I'd Die for you, I'm sure,
To hear the sweetest sound I know,
Your Voice... My Overture
Bridge ClosedIn the city of spires
thrust upward through the body of cloud
a piercing spike of adrenalin,
as the wind fondly ruffles her hair,
doesn't stop her from jumping up.
Reaching to be seen or saved,
by a city that blinks and misses her -
a temporary peak on the skyline.
Doesn't stop her from slamming
into the steel slashes
of the trainline below.
Even the most beautiful places
to those blinded by the inside-out-agony
of breathing against their will.
The city of spires remember her
as the cause for a bridge closed
on a Sunday.
Poem for My 2nd Semester English Teacher(Short v.)You stapled these words to the page.
Like a modern day tyrant,
You denied them the little humanity
You trapped their souls into
And threw them to the curb,
I understand that certain things
Should be left Inhuman
But we even give hurricanes names.
You taught us to separate the person from the art,
But if the art is about that person, you can’t pull them apart
FlamesThere are flames where
his head should be -
a poem left in the fireplace,
a dressing gown, a pipe,
forty pieces of silver.
This man promised you a winter
so warm and bountiful
spring would be ashamed.
He called you by name -
not the one that father knew
shoved under his bible.
But the one left behind
in the branches,
in the bucket of brambles,
and the columbines
buried at your feet.
Stones on the battlefield,
surrender in the grass.
What did his face
even look like behind the curtain,
counting those coins
and loosening the damp earth
from your shoes?
a love poemlike a dictionary ripe
with salted, sun spotted
words that emanate power
and splendor, i am unable
to describe you.
FriendshipFriendship is a tapestry
Woven through the years
With threads of joy and laughter
Happiness and tears
It's a work of art so priceless
It's shared by a precious few
Yet so easily created
By a loving friend like you
to nurse doe (whom we all know) i watched her
blood orange heart
cleanse and suture
old bullet wounds and
new bouts of lilacs,
lime, and blue
her alcohol and aloe
each one of us carries cemeteries beneath our skinyou are not the only one
to walk like there are
who looks both ways
before crossing the road
"knew a girl who";
you are alive
and you will experience
hurt, and you will
be so thankful
for every painful breath you take
because it's better than when
everything goes quiet
and all you feel is exhaustion.
there is more than just
one cold snap
before you enter
the winter of your life.
there are spells
of sadness and rage,
hate and denial
of all that you know
and all that you deserve;
and you are not the only one
to fight for everyday you are here,
alive and breathing
and striving to thrive
on such an unforgiving planet,
in such a world
that births emotional deserts
in its people;
you are not the only one
LonelinessLong I've played along the plot,
On the words that friends forgot,
Never checking twice my line,
Every day spent in confine,
Long awaiting their return,
I always hoped but never learn,
Never changing words nor tone,
Every day spent on my own,
Singing out a broken creed,
Singing so I might be freed.
what love is not.it was a s l o p p y first kiss where
my drunk lips fumbled against yours.
the dull thwack of my heart,
locked behind curved ribs
cleared my groggy brain,
clouded with lustful premonitions.
it was an e l e c t r i f y i n g first kiss where
you entwined your hands in my hair.
your mouth encompassed mine and
my breath became lost in the steady
of your chest.
it was a s h y first kiss where
i pulled away before you could explore.
your tongue grazed my teeth,
searching for a way past the ivory gates.
i dug my finger into the stubble along your jaw,
my nail lulling your carnal desires.
it was my first kiss with you.
