STORIES


Not all stories have a happy ending
Not all stories are worth mending
No I wish I could forget that fairy tale land
I wish I could forget the warmth of your hand
I want to fly through the roof I want to be free
Why Can't I escape from my reality
I want to erase you from my memory
I want to create a new fantasy
I want I want I want
To be To be To be
Nothing but happy
I want to look out my window see the sun
I want to look out and know a new day has begun
I want to run away
Into tomorrow
I want you to stay away
Don't try to stop me no
Let me be
Let me be free
I want to run on the edges of darkness and light
I want to fall I'm tired of the fight
I'm stepping down I'm not tough
I can't take it anymore I'm not enough
I'm dropping to me knees in surrender and begging for mercy
Please my mind and memories let me be free
Your torments are constant your driving me insane
I don't ever want to take a trip up memory lane
It hurts inside you moving on
It hurts inside you never noticing I'm gone
The silver looks delicious
Pull the mechanism it gets malicious
My fate is sealed This is my destiny
This is truly the end.. of.. me.....

SAYING I LOVE YOU


Saying I love you seems so plain
Since I love you more than numbers of the sands and the drops of the rain
Saying you mean the world to me doesn’t seem so grand or great
Since not even all the world’s riches could compensate
For just how much you mean to me
I want nothing more than for you to see
You are my light, my love, my treasure
Baby please understand nothing is comparable in measure
My love for you is deeper than the oceans and the seas
My love for you is my addiction my disease
I don’t want or need a cure
I have never felt this way before
I look into your eyes filled with beauty
I see your smile that I adore
Please don’t ever leave me
You warm me to my very core
I need you, I love you, and you are my life, my existence
Without you my life would cease to make sense
You are my passion my soul
Your very presence makes me whole
So I tell you again with these words so plain
As the moon begins to wane
With the sound of the morning dove
With all my heart, it is you, and only you, that I Love.

PLACE YOUR TRUST IN ME


I don't lie steal or cheat
I'm a rare kind of guy to meet
I don't break promises I am always there
I'm the kind of guy who'll sincerely care
If you need a hug or someone to talk to
You can always talk to you know who ^-^
I am never very far away
For within your heart is where I'll stay
If you start to fall dont be scared
My arms will always be there
I have stories and tales galore
I'll leave you begging for more
So place your trust in me
And see just what kind of adventure awaits thee.....

MEDIEVAL


Mine Fair Lady I wish to sing to thee a ballad

A dramatic song of courtly love, chivalry, and courage that mine father taught me as a lad

Lend me thy ear so I may whisper it to thee

A tale so beautiful it is only matched by thou eyes deepest blue as the sea

Dare might I have thou ears and heart with mine bequest?

Your time Malady is all I request



Ears of mine I do grant thee sir to hear thy tales

Listen I shall to thy story of bravery and fearsome gales

If thou manage to entertain mine heart today

Seven lands I shall give to thee if thou make me cheery as the jay

Excite mine soul thy good sir and mine good hand of Elise shall be yours I say



Dearest Lady then without fail I shall entertain thy heart and soul today...

Over the years we have seen many a troubling sight and way

The battles raged against our King Arthur were for naught

Heavens eyes doth favor the battles our valiant lords fought



I look upon the street sides and see the many guilds, shops and travelers vague

Nigh a place to see without the ravage of the deadly Black Death plague

Crusades are fought for the holy land where pilgrimage is a must

In the wars and struggles many tears are shed and many lives return to the dust

The French fought their Hundred Year’s War with the victor Valois

Everywhere thou look thy heart be incited by war and thou see no law



Everywhere but in front of mine eyes there is no beauty or grace

Valiant knights and lords would fight and die just to see thy golden glowing face

Every night I lay on mine bed recalling thou eyes and perfect stance

Reminiscing over our memories together... A perfect medieval romance

You will forever and always be in every mans soul but none so much as mine




Vast are the skies and the seas

Amazing are the midnight heaven lights that stretch further than thou eyes see above the trees

Lighting the heavens with shapes and intricate designs of the gods and heroes of old

Intersecting lights go by my face as the fireflies dance to tales, songs and fires bold

Anonymous and mesmerizing is the song of the rippling river its origin unknown

Numerous and nimble are the grey mice over the precipices of dark water stone

The valiance of warriors long since gone reverberates within this ancient forest




Abdicate I would mine deed to this fair land

Relinquish it I would for thou fair hand

Implicit it is to think that mine self would do such deeds just for thy heart

Sensuous though am I in mine decision, and art

Tell mine ears that thou would have mine soul

Open thou heart to my serenade let thy self fill my longing whole

Callous would I become if thou heart reject mine efforts

Ravaged and torn mine being would be, no longer would there be comforts

Adhere to mine heart, to mine soul, to mine self, to our song

Tell me mine Fair Malady that our hearts together belong

Sanction to me an aristocrats hand and grace mine Love



Let me sanction to thou mine hand good sir and mine seven lands

Oblige I shall to thy words of heart, of soul, of love

Vivid was thy story, touching to mine heart, perfect like the white mourning dove

Eloquence of thee good sir has won mine heart, mine soul and mine love, of Elise

LOVE OVER MATTER


They say love hurts, they never told me how much
They say time heals, but they never told me how long it takes
They say I am young, and don't know the meaning of such and such
But I promise I swear I won't give up no matter the stakes
I won't be brought down by their words
I won't be brought down by their swords
I won't give up so long as my heart beats to the rhythm of my life
I won't give in no
matter the pain and the strife
No pain no gain mind over matter
I won't let someone else help me shatter
I will make it moving forward taking my good time
In the end I will find
That which I desire
The burning fire
Of Happiness and Love
I am strong think you can take me
I may be young but if you could only see
Just what I have been through
Could you get up and do what I do
Smile each day
Don't let this ludicrous world get in your way
They say dreams are for fools but in reality
Dreams are all that I can see
You can't destroy my fantasy
So stop take a moment to look
Don't give up don't throw down the book
Keep your pen don't quit the story
The pages may hurt covered in blood being gory
But someday it will hit the shelves shit will hit the fan
That's when you'll realize this is who I am
I am strong think you can take me
There is more than what meets the eye here
I am strong think you can take me
I won't give in to simple fear
I am strong think you can take me
I am strong think you can take me
I will survive I will not die
I won't go down I will stand proud
So give up on me givin' up it will never be
I will stand up I will not change
After all I can be only me
And if that's not good enough
Then go back to your own fantasy..

LETTING GO


I told that I loved you, I told you that I cared
I told you whenever you needed me, I'd always be there
I told you that without you I wouldn't know what to do
I want you to know that I was happy every day that I spent with you
However I think it's time for me to let go, and keep in my heart the memories of yesterday
You may have left me for another, and I may have been lost for a while, but I think
I will yet again find my way
I won't lie, I was bitter, I was lost
I had no idea the kind of pain losing my heart would cost
You taught me a lesson, you made me a better man
And for that I, Thank ya ma'am
Yes I was lost where could I be found
I felt like the world had stopped spinning round
But I told myself stand-up be strong
My life is yet long
I'll be fine
I'll make some lucky girl all mine
And then that day I'll say in the sun or the snow or the rain
Thank you life for all the lessons thanks for all the pain
Thank you for the worries and the strife
Thank you for teaching me to be a gentleman, in this crazy life
So yes I was hurt yes I was down
But a man can't be a man with a permanent frown
So smile buck up get up today
The sun be shining, the moon be flying and that’s all there is to say...

I MET YOU NOT SO VERY LONG AGO…


I met you not so very long ago...
Yet I have known you my entire life...
I have seen you in my dreams before
Back when I didn't think life was worth it anymore
I met you not so very long ago...
Yet I have known you my entire life...
I used to think Love was only ever truly true
When it came to movies, and dreams and fairy tales
BUT
Then I met you...
I met you not so very long ago...
Yet I have known you my entire life...
I saw your eyes, so beautiful when I met their gaze,
And I saw your smile, so warm, and so wonderful, it sent me into a craze
I knew right then I loved you, My Heart told me so...
I met you not so very long ago...
Yet I have known you my entire life...
I wish I knew how to express that to you
This Love that burns within me
but because that is impossible to do
I will just have to show you
Each and every day for the rest of our lives
How can I do that you ask and wonder?
My answer is simple, my answer is true
I will show you every day, just by being there for you
I will be there for you when you need to be held, and have your tears wiped away
Sweetheart I am always here to stay
I will be there to smile with you, to tell you jokes when the sky is grey
I will be there to talk with you at the rising and setting of the sun each day
I will tell you "I love you" and mean each letter and word by ten times an infinity plus two
I will always be there with you when you don't know what to do
I could say a billion things added to the number of stars times the grains of sand
And even then I still couldn't make you fully understand
Just how much you mean to me.
You mean more to me than anything
The world could never tear us apart
And if they did I swear upon my living breath I will find you
And when I find you My Love..
I will take you away with me.. I will hold you close and gaze in your eyes...
I will show you how you mean everything to me
If it takes me all of our lives...
If I could explain I would how I felt and feel about you I would
but that's impossible
So let these words ring in your ears for now until the end of eternity
Let these words become a fact
Let these words be stated in my final act
Let these words mean something special
These words I mean every time I say them
These words:
"I Love You"

DO YOU REMEMBER


Do you remember
That fateful day in September
When those people died
And their voices cried
In agony
What made the men so cold, was it the publicity
Was it twisted religion
Just think of all the children
Who lost their parents in the stones and fire
Those loved ones who reluctantly retired
Now you complain about the fight and the economy
But remember it was you who called our men to duty
And now that things are sore
Our men don’t even know what they are fighting for
There is no support
And there isn’t any comfort
For those that give their lives and their will
Now I know things are rough but still
Remember what we are fighting for
They fought for your freedom they fought the Revolutionary War
They fought for desegregation they fought the
Civil War
They fought the world twice so far they fought
WWI & WWII
They fought communism for you and me they fought
Korea & Vietnam
But now that things are getting tough
You are all for leaving those men in the rough
They’ve lost their lives for what were they to leave right now
It would be just as bad if our president were Mao
Has your child come home in a body bag
Thrown by shrapnel like a rag
Mothers cry tears
Fathers realize their fears
All because people didn’t support didn’t believe
Those poor souls only grieve
For themselves and their possessions
No one cares about confessions
And now
As people go separate ways
And look back on those sad tear filled days
Will you remember
That fateful day in September?

Darkness & Light


Light is the Lord of Darkness
Darkness however can not help but be born of the Light
It is indeed within the center of the brightest shining Light
That the deepest most despairing Darkness dwells
I wonder...
Is my soul the Lord of Darkness..
Or is it simply Darkness bathed in the brightest shining Light?

ANOTHER NIGHT SLIPS BY…


The wind is roaring..
My mind is soaring..
Another night slips me slowly by...
And like tonight and the night before here awake I lie..
I just can't sleep..
My mind is reaching down way too deep,
As I am wondering why is this the way things are?
Why is this the way things had to be?
Why is it everything and everyone seems so far?
Why does my heart feel so damned lonely?
Why won't the pain just go away?
These tears don't even begin numb it half-way..
Another night, another day..
Someone tell me, why do I feel this way?
They said love hurts, they didn't say how much..
They said time heals, they didn't say how long it takes..
They said that I need to be strong that I will be fine,
But what is the point of that if the girl I love can't be mine?
Damn it why can't the truth be a lie?
Why did she choose some other guy?
What good can he do her if he ain't even there?
Why couldn't she see just how much I cared?
I'd give up everything and do anything just to make her happy
So what in this world makes me unworthy?
I worked so hard yet she tore me apart
Why did she ask for my heart
If she was just going to tear it to pieces?
Man the pain she gives me never ceases
Yet, for all it's worth I can't bring myself to hate that girl..
By and by she was always my world..
Yes she wronged me in so many ways,
But how can I erase all those happy days?
I can't, it's impossible, I don't want to, no not at all,
I guess all I can do is take these damned memories and start to fall....

AM I SO…


Am I so sick that I am dying
Am I so sad that I am crying
Am I so crazy that I've gone insane
Am I so numb that I can take this pain
Am I so weak that I can't stand
Am I so terrible that I raise my hand

Who am I, I just want to know
Who am I, I just want to know
Am I so kind that I brighten up everyones day
Am I so intriguing that people listen to every word I say
Am I so silly that I make the world a happier place
Am I so motivating that I help others finish their race
Am I so honest that you can always count on me
Am I so wise that I help you see

Just who am I?! I really want to know
Just who am I?! I really want to know
I am searching for this answer, I am searching high and low
Just who am I?! I can't make up my mind
Just who am I?! I thought I knew
Just who am I?! This is the question with an answer I can't find
Just who am I... to you....?

I am searching for the answer to a question only you could know
I am trying to figure out who I am because I no longer know
I am working so hard to be who I am and be that alone
I am trying to remove my chains.. and heart of stone
So who am I? I really want to know
Until I know.. Where can I go?
What’s my destiny, my fate, my name?
Will my life ever be the same..
Once I know....?

I’LL BE ALRIGHT..


I'll be alright
I'll be fine
I keep telling myself those lines
I won't give up I won't fall
Yet here I am waiting on that nonexistent phone call
I saved the pictures I saved the letters, and the memories
They bring me pain yet they they are my addiction my disease
I need them to live, yet they are killing me
I'd do anything to go back and make it right
I'd do anything to take back every single fight
I wish I could, I truly do can't you see
You are all that ever mattered to me..

Karma
By Storm Raven
(written for a friend with a cheating lover )

Yours is a song that pleasant sings,
Of beauty found on angel's wings,
But in my heart I feel a song,
As razor blades build puppet string,
For what you said is quite untrue,
An I was just a game to you,
But careful my lover: that game you play,
For I set justice in another way,
For this heart of fire and blood,
Shall see you begging in the mud,
Perhaps you did not know,
The death you brought with seeds you sow,
But I am old and wise enough to say,
You took advantage day by day,
So suffer ye my demon's wrath,
For games have killed my better half,
That lovely song that stole my heart,
I shall use to tear thee apart,
A true god's power cannot stay,
The blade of Karma as calls today,
I hope you find peace within the cell,
Where Karma placed ye and your blood fell,
Enjoy your stay and know well...
Ye have earned and shall live special hell.

Haha! Lillith, that cheater sounds like he is in for a pretty rough time, specially the, uh, special hell part

Cheaters aren't worth anyone's time of day though, a poem honors them too much in my opinion. Although, maybe the poem is kinda like a hex? You know, like in ye olde Ireland when bards could curse people and stuff

This is one of my poems from a forum game, I needed to create a poem using the image of a tree and a blue heart:

Heartfelt Tree Speech

Can you feel my eyes upon your soul?
Everytime I see you through the eyes of birds and insects?

Can you feel my breath on your skin?
Everytime the wind blows across your body?

Can you hear me whispering secrets?
Everytime you camp and listen to the night dwellers?

They all share my pure blue heart,
a heart created by rain water and sky light.

That morning dew,
upon your cheek.
Could it be evidence of a kiss?
Could it be evidence of a tear?

Sit under my branches,
only then,
you will know the truth.
