Well of course

Old stuff is still stuff! Ye don't think they don't write down new copies of older poems just because somebody might have already read em, do ye? *Smiles* Of course not! Especially since we've got new poeple coming to the inn all the time, I bet they'd like to read some good stuffs... Go for it, please.

Now, Can I Heal?
Wednesday, December 8, 2004

A spark begins down deep within,
A raging fire is soon to begin.
No time to think, no time to react
The fire consumes all in it's path.

Seconds have passed, the destruction is great
None could have seen what would come in the wake
Of the pressures and tasks heaped up to the skies
Jammed all together these reasons are why.

No time to think, I shove all aside,
Just shoving it all to the back of my mind
Depression will settle, consuming my soul
Will I be left wondering, or dead in some hole?

If I don't face this and take it head on
To my anger, and rage will I be a pawn
So face it I must, though the tears will then flow
I'll be crumbled and broken, with no where to go.

Lost in the night, alone in the dark
Try as I might, I can't light the spark.
The hope burns away, the fire burns bright
'Till not even ash is left in this night

Despair now deceives me, the lies ringing true.
Chained to my sorrows, who can I turn to?
Into my pillow, I cry through the night,
My frustration no longer can flee to the skies

Now that I'm Broken, beat down, torn in two,
Exhausted, tear stained, depressed and all blue,
The damn has crumbled from the weight of my tears
Leaving me Free of my anger and fears.

Another personal favorite, long though it may be...:)

I Will Overcome
Sunday, January 26, 2005

Just ignore this empty shell you see,
I’m not myself, I’m just a wasted dream.
I hate feeling like there’s no way out
There’s no where to go when I look about.

I’ve lost control, emotions raging high,
I struggled so hard, this I cannot deny,
To gain control of the broken me,
And bottle emotions like a raging sea.

Succeed I did for control was mine.
I bottled them all up deep inside,
And from my mind my cares did flee
Whenever they tried to torment me.

But all at once the bindings broke.
My emotions soon did take control,
And now I’m lost within their midst
No light now shines through these mists.

For so long I searched for the way out
Of the raging sea, and the rolling winds.
Damned emotions that surrounded me
I just wanted it all to end.

So conquer I did, these raging winds, and
The sea of emotions that controlled me.
And by the time I was out and free,
I was amazed at the sight that awaited me.

A drop of water in a tiny vial
That’s all my tempest was.
A vile so small my hand enclosed it,
And upon my face, a tiny smile.

Freedom was mine, the day was bright.
Life consumed me, no longer broken inside.
The warmth of the sun upon my face
Told of bright new days for me to face.

But now that vial, held tight in my hand
Has slipped through my grasp, and fallen to the land.
Shattered glass upon the earth
The sun is gone the storm re-birthed.

Consumed am I once again
The raging seas and the rolling winds.
I look about and see the night
No more warmth, now I must fight.

Now once again I stand alone
In the midst of the tempest, now my home.
Bound by emotions, no light can be found
Nothing but the cold, black night is all around.

My companion from so long ago,
Has found me and taken me home.
I never wanted to be found
By the torment to which I am bound.

Now I stand broken and alone
No path to see, no refuge my own.
I look to the skies, and my soul cries out
The torment inside echoes in the night.

I know I must fight, I must get out!
I cannot stay here to crumble and pout
The way out was found before,
Surely I can find it once more!

Where to look? Where to turn?
Never must I stop my search!
Outside my storm, my weakness strong
I know there’s a place where I belong

People do care, they do love me!
I must fight to be set free,
And return to the land outside my storm
Where my soul can never more be torn

But for now I am here, and I stand alone.
No hand to grasp, no peace my own.
The torment is tearing me up inside.
I want to lay down, to crumble and die.

But I know I can’t, I must stay strong!
There is an end to this night so long.
Outside these walls there is a place
Where I can find a friendly face.

As my body so weak, crumbles to the ground
I look to the skies and I make my vow:
I will never stop, never give up!
I will fight my way out, I will climb my way up!

I will find the place, I will reach the day
Where the night no more shall be the way!
I know there is something better for me,
So look out storm, and raging sea.

A NEW One! hehe

Now, just a forwarning, this one is entirely different than anything I have ever written before. I thought it was pretty cool, however, so I figured I'd stick it in here with my poetry. I wrote it for a post in CyrDraconis' game, "To the Faire, Redux!"

"Pirate's Gold"
Saturday, September 16, 2006

"Come and listen to the tale of old
Of pirates and ships laden with gold
'Tis a tale my mother sang to me,
But mistake it not for a tale of glee

For 'twas a night when the storms did rage
The swells so great, this ship was caged
Within the walls of sea and mist
These pirates could not but shake their fists

They wove a curse upon the ship
That none could find it, thus 'tis a myth.
Shall any find this ship of old
So laden with that pirate's gold?"

Well done

Kyle sat at his table as the words of the Lady DarkAutumn filled the air, between each poem some would whisper others would breathe once more. Kyle sat quite and still, they each struck a cord deep inside him. It was then she spoke one unlike any of the others and again the room fell silent when she finished her words. Kyle simply tapped his tankard and whispered, “Well done M’Lady DarkAutumn, well done indeed.”
