Stability.Dreary days, simple ways.
What person pays, such a price?
As any man, with no plan.
Can't give a damn, or a care in the world.
Hear many pleas, while on sore knees.
You can not please, the beast within.
Held by a lie, a pronounced 'goodbye'.
We wish to fly, far from threats.
Halt, don't exalt.
At fault, I fear.
Now on this ledge, make your pledge.
And double-edge, shrouded no longer.
Begin to create, even elaborate.
A fate, a path, a story.
Cherish love and cast off dread.
Your light spans across all seas.
With open doors, even in wars.
I hope to see yours, will you see mine?
Reflection.I'm here now.
Now where we once were. Now without you.
Bonds between two can be made instantaneously
and will both strengthen and weaken overtime.
Our bond was like any other: irregular, stressed,
and at times looking as if it might break. It
never did though. We mended each others wounds.
It took time; although, everything goes along with time.
I can't help reflecting on those days.
Sometimes moments that I had lost in the back
of my mind are found so easily while I waste the
night away. Your face, your voice, your character,
I remember it all. But what I recall and cherished
so much back then were your eyes. The window to
the soul, or so they say. To me they were a glimpse
into your heart. A heart that had known oppression,
begged for answers, and suffered loneliness.
So I did what I could, and with only a glimpse of
something so magnificent I gave it what every heart deserves.
I gave it love.
I did not even know it at the time. Regardless, I had
done it. Whether intended or not, you
Diminished. Part Six.
Two tall boys strode past Leo as he walked away from the library.
"Let's see if the little nerd is here today. I need to pick on someone today," said one of them as the other snickered.
Leo's ear caught those words and watched as they walked into the same building he had entered. Bullies, and they were going to pester that girl he saw. He took another step, but an invisible string tugged on him. His conscience was kicking in. Wait, why should it? This is similar to when he trailed that other girl. Something old and forgotten has immerged inside him…
The sound of shattering glass brought him back to reality. With a deep sigh, Leo went back into the library.
Standing in one of the rows with several books in her arms, the girl had a placid expression as the two boys towered over her. It was obvious that alone, she would have trouble with them.
Plucking a snow globe off one of the shelves, the boy on the right sneered at it before tossing it up and letting it break into pieces on th
Hope.So long as this mask remains in my
possession, these regrets stay with it.
I wait for that light. The one light.
A light that will cast away the shadows
in my heart.
Reason and belief fulfill their duties; however,
it is your light that will bring the hammer
crashing down. Shackles will be broken and
restraints undone. Words will not be necessary,
the moment itself will make it perfect. Our eyes,
our touch, our presence; they will do the speaking.
But until then I must survive with one thing.
I shall live with hope. Hope for that day to come.
Wish.The slumber I take may steal me from this land.
The slumber I take may bring desperate clarity.
Or maybe I shall wake to find you waiting for me.
All of this time spent has yielded no answers.
I wonder how anything works in that realm.
Such a waste.
So if you don't mind, I would like the company..
Just for tonight.
Pursuit.This will last.
With another instance of self-analysis coming to a close, my eyes are now more frantic open than they have been closed.
All this pain. So much sorrow.
What produces such misery?
I could reflect on the fact that I continue to show blindness to my environment, but now is not the time.
These most pressing concerns simply can not be ignored.
But through what acts and procedures can negativity be erased?
It would have to be a number of ways, for each issue is unique.
There is so little time.
You, who is hurting.
I implore you, do not relent.
Your story will, in time, reach its glorious conclusion.
Whether it be predestined, chance, or another explanation.
You deserve to be happy.
You deserve to be content.
At some time, you will only be encompassed by love and joy.
For no one can take away that which is locked away in someone's heart.
