A Road to the SunI came to the roads end,
was blinded and could not see ahead.
The deserts waters ran dry,
my wings too weak to spread and fly.
Like a corpse I slowly aged,
in this fictional book page by page.
In my dreams birds would sing,
As I awake hornets would sting.
I needed to rise off to flight,
on my way to end this fight.
To seek the ocean's soothing bliss,
and salute the sun with a kiss.
One cold November it had been,
as I arrived in this house of Zen.
Then a sudden warmth I felt,
a force that made the coldness melt.
Upon her eyes I glanced across,
as I savored what once was lost.
She pierced me with a ray of light,
and changed my dark into bright.
She added honey to my tea,
and sprouted roots of a dying tree.
Should I ever need a hand,
Right beside me she would stand.
And as I lay my head to rest,
a mother's womb became her chest.
In a kingdoms entrance she'd await,
to finally unlock paradise's gates.
Lost WorldAwrong turn I must have taken,
Storms have steered me towards collision.
The walls have fallen, the grounds have shaken,
a loss I've suffered, within my soul - division.
Now with a compass in my hand,
Upon this rock I shall try to rest.
Silence fills this foreign land
where there lay a hollowed chest.
At my map I should glance,
collect my thoughts and navigate anew.
Rebuild these structures and advance,
to rhythmic tides of love so true.
I've sailed the seas only to master
the winds and the waves, the tides and gravity.
I shall pull my anchor from this disaster,
and embark toward my treasured destiny.
Although I can't bring back lost time,
I can lift my head up to stars in the skies,
They will serve as my guide to find,
my lost world seen only inside her eyes.
Soldier of MisfortuneCharging this battlefield, weapon in my hand,
Only enemies do I see, it's man against man.
Adrenaline makes me invincible, a warrior I've become,
I blast through walls, my heart a beating drum.
Bullets fly, people die, voices cry,
through this disaster I manage to survive.
Corpses surround me, but I continue, never looking back,
Up ahead my target, I am ready to attack.
Eyes locked, muscles tense, blood is burning hot,
I raise the barrel, pull the trigger and fire a round of shots.
I march on my mission,....one after another they fall,
Weakened, I drop to the ground, crawl, then pause to think about it all.
Silence overcomes, my body's cold, my vision blurry,
I struggle to get up, now tears take over fury.
Paralyzed,..... I can't move any more,
I realize what is happening, but why am I fighting this war,
What am I dying for?
My FearFrom my bed I rise awake,
Nightmares come and dreams they break.
To close my eyes I just can not,
For through my veins blood boils hot.
From my pores exuding sweat,
I gather myself and regain my breath.
Within my hands collecting tears,
This evil silence fills my ears.
To my senses I must come,
Face this fright and become one.
What is this terror which on me feasts,
For I fear no object, man or beast.
Contemplating this wicked confusion,
I finally discover one conclusion.
Stripped of everything, I would not care,
But one thought which I can not bear.
This my feeling I hold true,
This my fear...losing you!
Missing LoveOnce there was a girl,
who lived in her quiet, lonely world.
She cast a smile that shown with light,
Even though inside was not alright.
A sun-like warmth within her eyes,
She could deceive the world with her disguise
She survived sadness and kept inside,
A heavy heart and scars she could hide.
Shelter she'd find within her arms,
to fall into a dream, distant from any harm.
Awakened by the cold numbing her bones,
She opened her eyes to find she was alone.
She cried aloud and dropped to the floor.
This hopeless life she wanted no more.
She prayed that this emptiness could be filled,
and the pain in her heart to be killed.
She wished one day to be hugged.
She wished one day...
to be loved.
I Won't Walk Backwards AnymoreI've seen the shadow of my reflection, and wiped these footprints off the floor.
I've heard this song a thousand times, yet I won't walk backwards anymore.
I've befriended blue illusions, and opened eyes to what's in store.
I've laced my shoes up once again, yet I won't walk backwards anymore.
I've welcomed raindrops on my face, and spread my wings so I may soar.
I've felt the center of the hole, yet I won't walk backwards anymore.
I've seasoned life with passion's bliss, and designed grounds to explore.
I've tasted waters quiet delight, yet I won't walk backwards anymore.
I've envisioned a flower's youth, and picked up memories washed ashore
I see the sun come over hill, and I won't walk backwards anymore.
I won't walk backwards anymore!
