4- Fear of the DarkDon't let the darkness overwhelm youDon't let it touch your heartFor if you doNot once will it be seen againBare to the dark your soulAnd at once it will be takenHide it from the othersFor what is best for themThey know not of the battleYou fight with everydayYou know to keep it from themThe secret's safe with youBut don't let the darkness closerFor once you loose the fightYou'll loose more than you offeredAnd mercy he shall not takeYour heartYour soulYour lifeYour goalThe darkness shall consume them allWhen the day comesAnd you forgetThe promises you have madeLooming up aheadIs that shadow stalking youYou turn you head in fearAnd once again they can't defeat youWaiting, watching, wandering patientlyDarkness knows no timeIt will sit and wait untilYour time as servant endsOne day you slip upYou mentioned to your friendOf the dreams that haunt your shadowsConfused and scared they run offAnd darkness overcomes youConsuming all it can reachOne, you
3- Out of the DarkThe brightness blinds herAs she walks slowly outOut of the darknessShe had made her homeWincing at the lightShe blinks and tries to seeBut in her years hidingLocked awayShe had lostThe sense of beautyMany minutes laterThey say she can returnAnd yet she is afraidThe warmth has comforted herWarmed her soulAnd brought her thoughts backShe is reminded of the monstersLurking in the darknessShe stands and walks awayHumming softlyShe looks aroundAnd finds the lightHas taught her to seeOnce againShe can live her lifeLike it once wasNow she laughs and livesDrenched in the sunlightThat helped her once,Chased those shadows awayAnd now in the light she looks to the doorNot remembering what came beforeAnd turns her back,And runs off towards the sunChasing a sunset.
2- Her Silver WingsShe flew upon those silver wingsFor many years was she freeThat little girl loved to liveI wonder, then, what happenedHer wings were rippedThen faded awaySlowly she sunk into the darkFrom the rays of light that used to beamWhere she wentNo one knowsHow they found herScared them thoughDark and depressedAlone in a cornerAs far from flyingAs can beThey tried to helpBut still she criedTerrified of the lightShe began to fade againShe saw them from a distanceThey really tried to helpOnce thenShe came aroundAt the sight of something new it sparked again,Her light withinAnd as she watched himHer wings regrewNot too longAnd soon she wasFlying highWith him again
1- My NameYou know my nameYou've seen my faceI've shown you my soulYet when you see meI receive a blank stareOne of confusionIn response to my friendly smileI walk right upUnafraid to askWhy don't you remember me?It's been yearsNow I only have a faceBurned in my memoryWhen next I see youI walk right upAnd sayHello. I'm--This time you know meAnd I don't know whyI remember youThe way you laughThe shine in your eyesAll of it comes back to meBut only once your goneI never got to introduce myselfWe always knew each otherNo questions askedNone needed to beIt was you and meForeverWe promised each otherHow little did we knowForever was so shortWe grew up fastAnd left before goodbyeSo next time I see youWill you know me?Will I know you?Or will the introductionsKeep repeating?
The AshesThe Ashes of What Could Have BeenCrying silently,Hiding from the worldNo one knows,No one willEverything is better this wayIs what she tells herselfNothing can touch meIs how she reasons itHow little does she know,But a few miles awaySomeone else is crying, tooLeft alone, to be aloneHow sad is it,That they are obliviousTo each other;To fateTheir destinies are intertwinedThey just have yet to meetBut while they cry,They thinkTwo girls,Barely there to know each otherNeither can stand it-Being aloneAcross one town,One thing unites themThe knife they grabbed,Being slowly dragged across their skinThey wake in the hospital,Both wanting to cryFor failure meansThe others must find outRolling overOne sees the otherSleeping peacefully,But a bandage wrapped around her wristsShe whispers,Are you awake?The other opens her eyesThey begin to talkWhy they're there pops upBoth are hesitant to answerNeither knows what this will do,Or th
By the River A red-haired girl sat down next to the quiet river and gazed down at her reflection, trying to understand the meaning of the happenings throughout the past few days. With a glare she splashed the water, contorting the image and startling the speckled cat curled up next to her. "Is something wrong, Alicia?" She turned around to see her black-haired companion heading towards her, concern clouding his features. "It's nothing," She said, gently rubbing behind her cat's ears to calm him. The boy fixed her with a stare, his golden eyes shining with worry, and when he saw her lap and the ground around her splattered with water he sighed. "You can't worry too much about not remembering--" He tried to continue but Alicia had stood up, and again the power her presence gave off astounded him. "October, it has already been too long since I woke up here, not knowing who I was or where I came from. I know better than to hope to remember som
