So it's been forever since I've written anything creative wise on here, or at least posted anything. So, I tracked down some old things, cleaned em up and will post anew, along with some new stuff thrown in too. I'v written the musical accompanyment to a bunch of the following, but alas, RDINN won't allow it save for Doo dee doo dahs haha.
As ususal, comments, constructive criticism and all that jazz are encouraged and appreciated.

Tell me What I'm made of

Tell me what Iím made of

Verse 1:

I linger in the darkness, longing to escape

Wondering about this world that desperately tries to relate

I struggle to my feet, trying to catch my breath

Iíve fallen (to the concrete) and Iím trapped beneath a shroud of death



Look into the fabled hourglass, the grains of life stare back at you

Watch the time slip through my fingers, gone away before I knew

Itís an amplified emotion, like tidal waves across the shore

A new sense of locomotion, reminding me thereís so much more



Chorus

Am I made of silver? Cause the light reflects off of my skin

Am I made of charcoal? Cause the dark is nestled deep within

Am I made of ice so cold?

Cause I feel so numb time after time

Am I made of fire raging?

Cause Iíve forged a soul thatís finally mine

Verse 2:

I donít like looking in the mirror; cracks in the glass reflect my state of mind

The man staring back just seems so unkind

So now is the time, for me to look deep within

Where one lifetime ends, another begins



The man that I am, all that Iíll ever be

Is the same as the one staring straight back at me

So Iíll take a lesson from a like-minded soul

Today is the day, that I regainÖ control.

(And I ask myself)



Chorus

Am I made of silver? Cause the light reflects off of my skin

Am I made of charcoal? Cause the dark is nestled deep within

Am I made of ice so cold?

Cause I feel so numb time after time

Am I made of fire raging?

Cause Iíve forged a soul thatís finally mine

Verse 3:

Time and again, Iíve had my patience tested

Put on the line and then, halted, arrested.

Try me now, and youíll see Iíll persevere

Respectively the answers will be clear



You push and you shove, damnit leave me alone

It doesnít accomplish anything

So Iíve had enough, just shut up be gone

And ask yourself while you are leaving

Chorus:

Am I made of silver? Cause the light reflects off of my skin

Am I made of charcoal? Cause the dark is nestled deep within

Am I made of ice so cold?

Cause I feel so numb time after time

Am I made of fire raging?

Cause Iíve forged a soul thatís finally mine

(Repeat x2 to fade)

If only for a chance

If Only For The Chance (old)

The following is a song with written musical score I composed a night last week when I was unable to sleep, lyrics, musical innotations and all came really easy that night, so I share it with you. (*) are for held beats to try and give an impression of rhythm) f is for Fortť, Crecendo for increase in volume, and other musical terms.


Verse1:
A Millenium, has come and gone,(*,*)
Two decades don't seem that long;
I've learned so many things along, they way.(*,*)

And in the twenty years I've known,
I'm proud to say I've gone and grown;
From a boy into the man I am, today.(*,*)

I've had my share of ups and downs,
On life's big merry-go-round;
At the end of the day, I still stand here dazed.

And still I wish on the stars above,
To have and hold all I dream of;
And when I think, I can't help but be amazed.

Chrous:
Here I'm standing tall with pride
I've got no fears nothing to hide
Arms spread wide to the wind like a turtle dove(*,*)
I'll take that risk, and give it all
If only for the chance to fall
If only for a chance to fall in love.(*,*,*,*)

Verse2:
Up each day at the crack of dawn,(*,*)
last night's dreams have come and gone;
I'm ready once again to face, the day.

I'm walking through this world alone,
With no-one here to call my own;
Lord when will an angel come, my way.

Someone to love, forever true,
Someone to hold the whole night through;
Someone to dance along to love's , sweet rhyme.

With eyes I love to gaze into,
a smile to chase away my blues;
A love to last until, the end of time.

Here I'm standing tall with pride
I've got no fears nothing to hide
Arms spread wide to the wind like a turtle dove
I'll take that risk, and give it all
If only for the chance to fall
If only for a chance to fall in love.

Interlude:
Bridge: -build to crecendo-
I'm ready now to give it all
To reach those things that I dream of

Tell me what will it take to Fall
( f *,*,*,*)
(*,*)(*,*)
Tell me what will it take to fall in love(*,*)

Here I'm standing tall with pride
I've got no fears nothing to hide
Arms spread wide to the wind like a turtle dove
I'll take that risk, and give it all
If only for the chance to fall
If only for a chance to fall in love.
-repeat-
Here I'm standing tall with pride
I've got no fears no doubts inside.
Arms spread wide to the wind like a turtle dove I'll take that risk, and give it all
If only for the chance to fall
If only for a chance to fall in love.

(*,*,*,*)
If only for a chance...

To Fall in love
'Melody to Fade'

Because Vilyamar dared me to do something.. metallish...

Because apparently all I wrote were love songs, Our resident Vilyamar asked me to try my hand at something... heavier? here's the results.

Desolation

v1:
Condemning the life I havnít chosen to live
Siphoning away more than I have to give
Damning this world in the face of it all
Battered and broken unable to crawl
Chorus:
Bring down the ivory tower till itís rubble at my feet
Revel in the anarchy its beauty is complete
The time has come to act no need for further contemplation
Desecrate, eradicate till utter desolation
v2:
Order found in chaos this kaleidoscopic view
The panoramic diagram of life is hardly true
Today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday
Break down the walls when darkness falls no light shall find its way

Bring down the ivory tower till itís rubble at my feet
Revel in the anarchy its beauty is complete
The time has come to act no need for further contemplation
Desecrate, eradicate till utter desolation

Bring down the ivory tower till itís rubble at my feet
Revel in the anarchy its beauty is complete
The time has come to act no need for further contemplation
Desecrate, eradicate till utter desolation
Bridge:
Cast away yon wayward faith and rise from lowered knee
Stand alone, strong on your own the truth revealed to theeÖ

Bring down the ivory tower till itís rubble at my feet
Revel in the anarchy its beauty is complete
The time has come to act no need for further contemplation
Desecrate, eradicate till utter desolation

Bring down the ivory tower till itís rubble at my feet
Revel in the anarchy its beauty is complete
The time has come to act no need for further contemplation
Desecrate, eradicate till utter desolation(extend to fade)

Countless Roads, a Single Door (Ode to the Red Dragon Inn) (old)

To walk the thousand paths we walk
And end at one same door
To come from places round the world
And make new friends galore

To share in laughs of joy and mirth
To share the tears of pain
To chat under eternal sun
While outside pours the rain

This Inn has opened humble doors
To countless walks of life
To venture in beyond its walls
Express oneís cheer or strife

A Lair of Creativity
A Bastion of Expression
A Monument of Liberty
A Shrine of dark Confession

This inn has through its many tales
Brought countless hours spent
On expanding the imagination
Of minds weíve all forth sent

Lifetime friends by word of mouth
Romance between the lines
Give me hope that this dear Inn
Shall live throughout the times

To Innkeeper and faithful staff
From once wayward travelerís heart
May tales be spun for years to come
And friendships never part.

Broken (Because we all have 'down days') (old)

Broken

Time and time again
Patience tested
Put on the line and then
Arrested
Try me now, you see,
I'll persevere
And respectively
Answers will be clear.
You push and shove, damnit
Leave me alone!
It doesn't accomplish s***,
So shut up; be gone...
Lucky for you, I'm strong inside.
I'm in complete control.
One's like you have always tried,
Yet nothing's left of the fire but coal.
Help me to understand
Why you do the things you do.
Tired of my feelings on demand,
It's better now that they're few.

Just had a quick gander, and they're really good!


Of course it's still hard to know what they'd sound like without music.

Pushing the Envelope

This Poem was written years ago in my youth back when I was still fairly new to RDI and I wrote a rather empassioned poem that rose some eyebrows amongst the Admins. After a educational and much needed discussion with our own dear Vanadia I removed it and put the lingering creativity into the following as a thank you/ apology all in one. Enjoy.

Pushing the Envelope.

Feelings surge in a violent wave

A need for release I cannot stave

I bring such outlets to the inn

My words and prose bordering on sin

In no way are they meant to cause

Discomfort or distaste but merely give pause

Think over the small little joys in your life

And compare to the balance that's anger or strife

Not everyone has a sky free of rain

More often then not we are trodden by pain

The youth of today from what I've come to know

Combat day to day an invisible foe

Depression runs rampant through circles of youth

The adults in their wisdom are blind to the truth

"A swift kick in the rear" is all that they need

Yet to obvious warnings, they fail to pay heed

I've written on here grand poems of love

And other's of prayer to forces above

My writing is driven by passion or rage

So sometimes the odd word comes to the page

That when read might be deemed as distasteful

Though I say that nothing I write is disgraceful

So moderators if you feel I've ever crossed the lines

Send me mail of your thoughts and literary confines

I write to spare me from looked-down-upon routes

Using words to try and settle my inward disputes

But if my expression is overstepping my user rights

I'll take such expression to another site

Or edit it so that my feelings are still said allowed

But it's readable for this entire site's PG rated crowd.

There's a Dragon on my shoulder (New 09/24/2008)

There's a dragon on my shoulder and he whispers in my ear,
of strange and wondrous tidings only I can ever hear.
He tells me of his home off in sky atop a spire,
where rays of golden sun are spun from an angel's magic lyre.
He tells me that when faeries cry, is when the raindrops fall, and the quickest way to mend their pain is to play a white lark's call.

He said the woman sitting next to me up at the bar, was really a young princess from a distant fallen star.
He said I should be charming and that I could win her hand, but when I tried to tell her this she didn't understand.

I told her about my dragon friend her turn just made me think, for as she left I realized I'd had too much to drink.
The princess was a stuardess from flight 103, the lark's call was a jukebox song called "60's Jubilee".

The faeries were a leaky roof from which the raindrops fell, the golden rays were stars and dots as I felt my vision swell.
The spire was my barstool, which as I flew I watched fall over, and the dragon was the bouncer telling me to go home till I'm sober.

Random writings of 2009, An introverted thought into extroverted experiences

I have a dream of us in our perfect little world, you and I together not worrying about anone or anything; just us

Logically I know the bad outweighs the good, but in my heart the good gets counted double simply because I know this fact..
and somehow the good seems just about good neough for me to hold on to whatever it is we have, you see..

I gave myself to you, I held nothing back.
My heart, soul, and body was given to you, it's heart to let go because in doing so I leave my heart, sould, and body behind so I won't dwell or backtrack.

How do I let go without leaving ME behind and expect to have the strength to move on when I'm worse now than I was before you...

Before you, I had ME, now I'm simply empty.
So how can I let go of you, who makes me who I am, who possesses my anatomy and encompasses my mind and really expects me to be free when without you there is no me.

Why do I stay?
I stay because though your painful pleasures bring forth so much heartache I hurt even more when everything that makes you you is absent.

I would give up my freedom to be held captive in your embrace. You are my other half, my provider, my friend.
You hurt me, and yet bring me such joy at the same time... and still, I dream of us in our perfect little world.

My imagination gives birth to a pain free ME and YOU and that becomes my reality because it is my most prayed upon fantasy.
This is why I stay... Is that a good enough reason?
We'll see

No subject:

When I'm away from you I can still feel you near me
Your smile is to be my smile
The warmth of my heart is shown from the warmth of yours.

When i am in your arms I know love as a gift only you can give me
Yet in this time apart I am already missing you, knowing I didn't get to hold you long enough.

When i share my laughter with you I see someone special who lifts my spirit;
showing me that happiness is such a wonderful feeling, now more than ever before

When i hold your hand
I know i care so much
Everytime we are connected by this solitary touch it is a chain forever unbroken.

When i love you
I know i will love you now,
I will love you tomorrow,
I will love you forever for I know I will never stop loving you.
