Its not needed
What is not felt
Is not understood
No one is 'me'
So no one will know
What even I cannot fully
How it frees
Separates me from the world
Yet I'm bound
Fire ChantMay the words I mutter at my lips
Ignite thy will at my fingertips
And through your blazing, guiding light
Set fire to all within my sight
Your enemies shall burn aflame
A fate for all who challenge your reign
As is the duty of a faithful soul
To cleanse the world for the realm of Ra'tol.
Sweet DreamsIn an endless dream I loved you
When you were next to me
For the rest of our days
When your heart was still beating
In an endless dream I loved you
Where your love would never fade
Until I open my eyes
and the truth I cannot escape
In an endless dream I loved you
From which I cannot wake
For the fear of life without you
Is more than I can take
ConfessionI didn't think you could take more of me,
that of what was left could be so quickly,
made helpless from the words you said,
as I resign to the tears I shed.
To think thats all it took to break,
all that I had worked to make,
the walls I built to hold me fast,
have finally given way at last.
This wasn't at all what I had planned,
and now it's more than I can stand,
theres nothing left that I can do,
but to admit I miss you too.
MemoryThough endurance all but owns me,
time marks its nearing brim,
you're still so far away,
our brief moments feel so slim.
But nothing could replace,
our every moment spent,
the mark you've left on me,
I could never forget.
Every smile for you was real,
every care sincere,
every feeling as true,
as every parting tear.
Embracing what's between us,
may make our journey long,
but every day is proof,
our feelings are just that strong.

Love Haiku #2It may not mean much,
but this heart is proof to you,
that you are my love.
to see you as I awake,
I need nothing more.
Wherever you are,
is the closest to a home,
I will ever know.
There is no such night,
to which you cannot be seen,
my dear guiding light.
Now that I've found you,
like an ever-burning flame,
you brighten my world.
What you alone see,
it will never part from me,
my last and only.
Tea with Sugar'I like tea sweet',
though it may seem benign,
it threatens their design,
of how what they like,
will always be right,
what they dont like to see
No one but me,
will understand this taste,
but somehow its misplaced;
I was dealt the short straw,
who would have foresaw,
I wouldnt like my coffee
To feel guilty,
of a preconceived notion,
that this single emotion,
makes me among sinners,
given certain factors,
were pieces broken in me
Theres no apology,
what I feel is owed,
to some moral code,
when being divided,
and so one-sided,
I've lost where I truly
this mutual fear,
wont quickly disappear,
when love is a charm,
used to justify harm,
but love can never be
Quotes To Live ByQuote 1:
The opinion of others matter not compared to the opinion of oneself.
Embrace that you have absolute power over your opinion, and absolutely none on others. They will perceive you how they like, but only you can control what they see.
The words others say are just what they are: words. What makes them hurt or heal is what you allow them to do.
How can one expect others to understand you, when you cannot understand oneself?
Expect the best and you will be disappointed, expect the worse and either you will be prepared, or pleasantly surprised.
Dont let the grievances of yesterday dictate how you treat others today; they hold no responsibility for the actions of others before them.
Suteki Kafe | Lovely CafeSuteki Kafe
Kono shiro-i yuki no hi,

"Konnichiwa, ogenki desu ka?"

This white snowy day,
ikemen-kun is drinking coffee,
you do not notice me,
in this little cafe.
"Hello how are you?"
I want to boldly say,
but I do not find the words,
no voice escaping, scary.
I'm surprised to see it,
just your smile,
gives me butterflies,
by mere chance, I'm falling (in love).
The future is a sweet mystery,
between you and me,
but when I see you recently,
already, I dont want to wait.
MonsterThat bony smile across his face
a sight to take your breath away
as time erupts and slips its pace
a noose of stars that went astray
slips down the sky to find its place.
He said he roamed too far afield
that all his pleas were spurned and shunned
the hands of god refused to yield
They only left him dazed and stunned
with fleshy wounds that never healed.
So now he haunts the fields and fens
and calls the narrow ways his home.
The secrets that no man can ken,
the buzzards bleat a wretched drone
and turn their backs on drowning men.
The World Within My CityThere's another world within my city,
Where people cry and sleep on stone,
They scavenge and beg for food and water,
But in the end they always die alone.
I think once they were just like me,
They didn't deserve to end up like this,
But now they're oppressed and I'm free,
It was taken out of their hands it wasn't their choice.
However, it was their life that was stolen,
In the blink of an eye they lost everything,
Most can hear that old, rotting bell tollin',
For now they sleep broken, and on the streets.
They rolled the dice, and got snake eyes,
We hardly feel anything towards them but pity,
As we pass them by and they silently watch,
I hope they find the world outside my city.
MankindWe’re all just worthless,
Careless type of people,
Who wants to be consumed by evil.
We could ignore the chances of being equal.
Hating is what we choose, knowing it’s lethal —
A virus is within a needle.
We pierce it into our skins, expecting some sort of sequel,
Wanting our drug to make the world peaceful,
Forgetting that the world will only be hateful.
Wars against our neighbors are frightful,
Expanding our pitiful beliefs of being fearful.
How naïve are we to be so hurtful?
Yes, just let us murder children with words but say “we’re being insightful” —
So blinded but we can still see.
We can’t develop sympathy, empathy
For the possibility
Of eventually being able to see
What cannot be seen by humanity —
Mankind is just ugly creatures,
Monsters of the past and the future with new features
That created these procedures
To hate, to rage, to fight,
Blocking the weak sight.
When will we learn
Little Desert TownWelcome to our little town, in the desert deep
Where strange lights pass over us, while we all pretend to sleep
Where creeping dread and mystery is everything you feel
Where angels are like mountains - as in, they're both not real
Let's first head to Big Rico's and have a slice to eat
Or we have something else for lunch, if it doesn't contain wheat
Do you see that helicopter? If it's black, then it's okay
But if it happens to be yellow, scream and run away
Do you see that house nearby, the one that isn't there?
It once swallowed a scientist with perfect, perfect hair
Let's visit Tamika Flynn, the bravest girl in town
She once vanquished a librarian, completely on her own
You want to see the dog park? Good God, what's wrong with you?
Nobody ever leaves alive, except maybe one or two.
Our weather here's the best thing that you will ever hear
It has the finest melodies, so soothing for your ears
Let's go visit Old Josie, and her friend Erika – with K
Her cookies taste angelic, her s
I belongI am feeling love deep inside my core.
Tenderness, compassion, what else could be more?
All this makes me gentle yet strong,
and believing here I rightfully belong.
The Haze Between UsFormless underneath that cape
All the scars I inflict
Will you look at me?
Take my hands with your blood upon
Or hold me at the nape?
So I can for one last time
Let you see me
Stains in rivulets you cleaned
I can still remember
So does the earth underneath
My nails cannot ever be pardoned
Covered another theme
They clutch at piteous pride
Slip as quick as I breathe
I plead by eye to blinded cowl
Take me back inside
Have I not been punished?
Drowned in the bone dust you cried
When our romance went afoul
And I took the part of you
From my piece of mind
Spectre of my scenery
Transparent as the rains
Yet forthcoming the travails eschew
Darling have I behaved so cruel?
To make this existence dreary
That when I smile
You can only forget you knew?
I write the testament and scribe
With those sins as ink and pen
Trying to atone this finger paint
On a canvas devoid of elegance
Make the colour grey sigh
Instead of tearily
Reflect my longing visage of late
Witness by the passing days
Can you see m
BiblioclasmPeople burn like pages
Bad memories with good.
As ash covers their faces
They do what no one should.
Like blank and blackened corners
We never had a chance.
And so we rip
This city fills with mourners
Who shrivel at a glance
While they rip
Flaming books that once were vessels
Burning with them all our pasts.
When they rip
How is it that a loss which was the baneHow is it that a loss which was the bane
of life, and made you limp, becomes your cane?
Your sorrow, pampered like a pet! You deign
To honor something low and mean, you feign
Dislike but stroke it daily. See, its gain
Grows faster now, for when you sleep, you’ve lain
In hollow hours, mopping tears, its mane
Draped by your side. You like familiar pain.
Yet I would send you storm clouds, heavy rain,
To roust and drown this pet, to make you sane
Again, for life is never lived in vain.
If life will grow, of course a life will wane.
So when a heavy loss becomes the bane
Then honor high and bright and love and gain.
