Temporary
Finding someone just to lose them soon after
Has become a common occurrence in my life
And though I try my best to break the cycle
All my efforts seem to be in vain
It's enough to make you want to give up
Any hope for a different outcome
I've spent too much time waiting for a person
Who is the polar opposite of all the others
But I still hold out hope that I'll find them
Even though all I've done is suffer
They're here one second and gone the next
It's almost like they don't even exist
Why can't these good things ever last?
Will my future always be a retread of the past?
This has all become too familiar for me
I want to break from the ordinary
I want a love that isn't temporary
Keeping a positive outlook is easier said than done
Just when all the storm clouds start to disappear
Someone goes and leaves my heart torn once again
Eliminating any chance for the skies to remain clear
I've spent too much time waiting for a person
Who will be the opposite of all the others
But I still hold out

Under The Waves
I walked in with no expectations
Just wanted a simple conversation
No one would give me the time of day
That all changed when I met you
Words flowed between us so effortlessly
You always put my restless heart at ease
When did everything between us change?
When did the sunshine turn to rain?
Why'd you let the ocean carry you away?
I'm slipping under the waves
With no one to rescue me
I'm slipping under the waves
With only the echo of my voice
Bouncing off the waves to comfort me
Before you I never opened up to anyone
But as I got to know you I took a chance
And let all my defenses melt away
I felt a kinship between us and I was right
We were one and the same, in perfect sync
No one could drive a wedge between us
When did everything between us change?
When did the sunshine turn to rain?
Why'd you let the ocean carry you away?
I'm slipping under the waves
With no one to rescue me
I'm slipping under the waves
With only the echo of my voice
Bouncing off the waves to comfort me

I'm Sensitive
We're taught to put on a strong face
Suffer in silence and leave no trace
Of our true feelings when we walk outside
We must never break this calculated character
Cause the second you do, it's all over
They will ostracize you for life
I've had enough
It's time to use my voice
And speak honestly
Just cause I'm sensitive
Doesn't mean that I am weak
I might shed a tear or two
But it won't be over you
Just cause I can empathize
Doesn't mean others can use me
My skin might rip and tear
But it will always heal
I once blindly followed their toxic mindset
As other people kept bombarding my walls
Until they became frail and paper thin
When the final stone was cast, they fell
And all the emotions beneath the surface
Swallowed me whole, refusing to let go
Until I acknowledged them as part of me
Only then did the error of my ways become clear
I've had enough
It's time to use my voice
And speak honestly
Just cause I'm sensitive
Doesn't mean that I am weak
I might shed a tear or two

Phantom Limbs
Lying alone on this old bed
I'm trying my best to sleep
But I can't shake this feeling of dread
There's an empty space next to me
Where your body used to lie
Each night I sense a presence come alive
You're no longer here
But I still feel you
You're no longer here
But I still feel you
You're no longer here
But I still feel you
I tell myself nothing's there
But it becomes harder to believe
Once the sensation washes over my skin
The more I try to fight it
The weaker my will becomes
I say I want to be left alone
But I know that's not true
You're no longer here
But I still feel you
You're no longer here
But I still feel you
You're no longer here
But I still feel you
My fingers move across my body
But I'm not the one controlling them
They're being guided by phantom limbs
I still feel you
I still feel you
I still feel you
I still feel you
I still feel you
I still feel you

Cold Shoulder
You were chasing the unattainable
And got your heart broken yet again
I told you this was gonna happen
But you refused to take my advice
So I bit my tongue and supported you
Even though you've never done the same for me
I gave you a shoulder to lean on
And you soaked up all the attention
But when I needed someone to confide in
You paid me back with a cold shoulder
As soon as you're done mourning
You go off on the hunt once again
Like nothing ever happened to you
And when it all inevitably falls apart
You run to me with tears in your eyes
Ready to drag me down so I can share your misery
I gave you a shoulder to lean on
And you soaked up all the attention
But when I needed someone to confide in
You paid me back with a cold shoulder
I gave you a shoulder to lean on
But when I needed someone to do the same
Your sympathy was nowhere to be found
All you gave me was a cold shoulder
I'm done giving all I have
Just to get nothing in return
It's time you learned
What it's like to go it alone

I Dream Of Ghosts
A friendly voice, a familiar face
You look so real I could touch you
But when I try to move in closer
You start to disappear before my eyes
Nothing more than an apparition
A haunting reminder of all that I've lost
I dream of ghosts every night
But are they truly ghosts
If I see them in broad daylight?
I dream of ghosts every night
But are they truly ghosts
If the people they resemble
Are still alive?
The imaginary have infiltrated reality
Everywhere I turn I see someone else
Someone who went missing long ago
I told myself to give up my search
Like they gave up on me
But now their shadows have come back
Intent on following me all over the place
Until I fall apart and straddle the edge
I can feel myself giving in to their illusions
Despite knowing that it's all a fantasy
I dream of ghosts every night
But are they truly ghosts
If I see them in broad daylight?
I dream of ghosts every night
But are they truly ghosts
If the people they resemble
Are still alive?
They're waiting for me to hand

The Lighthouse
The sun rises in the distance
Cascading over the open ocean
Until the rippling waves
Shatter the golden light
Into a million glittering pieces
And scatter them all across
The surface of the water
When night stretches over the sky
I ascend the lighthouse's steps
And shine its column of light
On the crashing waves below
Trying to recreate the phenomenon
That happens every new morning
But it just isn't the same
Before I know it, dusk has arrived
And I must switch off the light
I can always try again tomorrow night
And I will keep on trying
Until I successfully reproduce the magic
Performed by the rising sun
But for now all I can do
Is walk down the lighthouse's steps
And watch the spectacle happen once more

Altar
Take me by the hand
Everybody's waiting for us
Let's walk up to the stand
And write the next chapter
Let's lose our individual forms
And fuse into a single entity
We don't have to wait anymore
Our moment has finally come
I can hear the bells
I can hear the bells
Ring, Ring, Ringing
What a lovely sound
All that stands before me is an altar
Ready and waiting for it's sacrifice
So I offer up my bleeding heart
In exchange for a bit of solace
Even if it's only temporary
Cause nothing good will last forever
They're waiting for me to come forward
But my body is too numb to move
It feels like just yesterday we stood here
Reciting our vows before this altar
And now you're lying inside a coffin
As lifeless as a block of stone
Why were you taken away from me?
I don't want this to be the end
I can hear the bells
I can hear the bells
Ring, Ring, Ringing
What a wretched sound
All that stands before me is an altar
Ready and waiting for it's sacrifice
So I offer up my bleeding heart

Cycle Pt.2
No one wants to admit that there are answers
No human will ever be able to find
So they keep on searching the universe
For any shred of evidence hidden deep in the ocean
Or up high with the flickering stars
Life is nothing but a series of repititions
That keep us together and tear us apart
Everyone says that they fear the pain
But deep down we all know it's a lie
Cause torture on the wheel is all we know
It's the only thing that proves we're alive
Our race was condemned to repeat the mistakes
Born from the selfishness of our ancestors
As punishment for their rejection of knowledge
No one can escape this vicious cycle
Except for those who embody purity
A Catherine among Alexandrias
A Hypermnestra among Danaides
A Dia among Ixions
A human among savages

MPD
I'm just like any other guy out there
I'm attracted to certain qualities
Found within the female population
But unlike all those other guys
I struggle to find that special girl
And once I do, she is gone before long
Wait a minute....on second thought...
Maybe I am like most guys after all
I keep falling for those MPDs
That's Manic Pixie Dream Girls
In case you need some clarification
I wish I knew why I always go for them
But I don't have a single clue
Maybe the answer I'm looking for
Is the opposite of what I think it is
Maybe I'm a Manic Pixie Dream Boy
Who searches for my next pet project
Once I finish the one I'm currently on
I fall, fall, fall for MPDs
And they fall, fall, fall for me
I fall, fall, fall for MPDs
And they fall, fall, fall for me
Quirky girls are the kind of girls for me
They bring out the shining light
That hides amongst the darkness within me
Thereby improving my quality of life
If only they would stay once that light was found
Instead of leave once the excavation

Palace
Somewhere only he knows
Stands a palace
Made entirely of glass
He calls it his home
He's hidden
In plain sight
His every action
Is on display
Yet no one sees him
He calls it
Public privacy
It's the only way
To be ignored
By everyone
Inside that palace
There's nothing
Decorating the halls
He destroyed
Every memory he had
Of life before
He entered its walls
He wanted to start over
And be completely alone
He got what he wanted
And paid the price
He's hidden
In plain sight
His every action
Is on display
Yet no one sees him
He calls it
Neo-isolation
It's the only way
To be truly invisible
In everyone's eyes
His life is anything
But peaceful
He suffers in silence
With only his demons
To keep him company
He passes the time
By limping along
The corridors
Of his glass palace
And crying
The bitter tears
Of a man burdened
With lifelong regret
He's hidden
In plain sight
His every action
Is on display
Yet no one sees him
He calls it
Self-imposed exile
It's the only way
To feel abandoned
By everyone

Helike
When you call I follow
The hypnotic echo
That dances through the city
Until I find the source
And reunite with my love
Today is no different
But I can't help feeling
A destructive aura
As I walk through the city
Is it all in my imagination
Or is it real?
I have no clue
I just want to find you
All of a sudden
I see an old man running
Screaming this
At the top of his lungs,
"I have seen the unthinkable!
A sign from Poseidon
And his brother Hades!
Immense columns of flame
Have lit up the sky!
Imbuing it with
Every color imaginable
Before turning white
And disappearing!
The end is nigh!"
Once he disappears behind me
I can feel my heart sink
What if that presence I felt
Was another sign?
Is the end really coming? No!
It's all in my head!
Nothing's gonna happen
I continue on my search
Chasing after your echo
Through every corner
Of the city
When suddenly I feel
The aura grow stronger
I look up to the sky
And to my horror
I see the unthinkable
The columns of flame

The Dreaming Mirror
What have I become?
The face that meets my gaze
In the mirror before me
Is not my own
It's the face of the man
I never wanted to be
Mocking my failure
And I just can't take it
Something needs to be done...
When I look at the shards on the floor
I see a different version of myself
Staring back at me from each and every fragment
But upon further inspection
It's clear that none of them are really me
And I'm left standing there confused
Not knowing what to think
It's like I've stepped into a hall of mirrors
But instead of multiple distortions of the same image
Dancing along the walls as I keep moving forward
The mirrors have split me into many disparate individuals
Who each inhabit the unique world that lies beyond
The glass windows they are looking through
Twisted smiles suddenly appear on their faces
And they start chanting in unison...
"What is life?
A madness!
What is life?
An illusion!
What is life?
A shadow!
What is life?
A story!
What is life?
A dream!
And what's a dream?
A dream."

Disiecti Membra Poetae
A wise man once said,
"Aequam memento rebus in arduis servare mentem."
Little did he know what would become
Of the doomed world he tried to save
With the words of ancient times
Disiecti membra poetae
Everywhere I look
Disiecti membra poetae
Everywhere I go
Disiecti membra poetae
Is all the savages know
Disiecti membra poetae
Is all they can sew
I see blood on the hands of every faceless entity
That dares walk past his desecrated grave
Acting as if nothing of significance happened
When they know damn well what they did
To the last messenger from a civilization
They deemed antiquated and obsolete
Disiecti membra poetae
Everywhere I look
Disiecti membra poetae
Everywhere I go
Disiecti membra poetae
Is all the savages know
Disiecti membra poetae
Is all they can sew
Blood, blood, blood
Decorates the scene
Turning a blank canvas
Into a river of carmine
That leads me back to you
Your tombstone says "Ask me anything."
So answer this, good sir...
Was this world really worth saving?

Nothing Left
I have nothing left in my heart for you
I wish there was, but I must tell the truth
Even if some feeling was still there
I know it would dry up sooner or later
All I feel when I look at you is resentment
For wasting my time after I fell for you
I've packed your things, they're by the door
What are you waiting for? Get out of here!
I don't want to hear your pleas for forgiveness
There's nothing you can say, nothing at all
That could possibly change my mind
I have nothing left in my heart for you
It may sound harsh, but it's the truth
I've been running on empty for weeks
And my body can't take it anymore
Anger is in complete control of me
It's been that way ever since
We left that rosy honeymoon period
And came crashing back down to reality
You don't know what love is!
I don't think you ever did
But if this is in fact love
Then I guess love isn't for me
I have nothing left for you
Nothing, nothing, nothing
There's nothing left for you
Inside my heart
I have nothing left for you
Nothing,

White Tulips
I never thought I'd be here
Wiping away Maggie's tears
As the man reads your name
From the list of casualties
I came with a white tulip bouquet
In the hopes of being forgiven by you
But now I'll never have that chance
For you were taken away prematurely
Fate has given me a raw deal
And condemned me to a life
Cursed by constant regret
There's only one thing I can do
Lay these white tulips on your grave
And pray that you've forgiven me
By the time I join you on the other side

Tempting
Is something wrong?
Only had a bad dream, that's all
Oh.... do you want to 
tell me all about it?

It's nothing, really
If it's nothing, then why
do you appear so bothered?

.......... Because in my dream
I was forgotten and alone
Even if I have friends 
that tell me otherwise,
they eventually grow distance
and cold until we become
strangers once more
Hmmm, how interesting
You are not alone, yet you
feel that way

Yeah, it's stupid to 
think like that, I know
But it's not the first time
this happened either........
Hmph, I remember now
the things that occurred,
those inconsiderable wretches have done
They left you out
after you told them many times
you weren't able to go,
then learning they had fun
without asking you to join them
Despite the chitter-chatter
that they always produced,
they seem to have 
forgotten you were even there,
not noticing you'd left
Tsk, tsk
what a pitiable
little bird you are,
unable to produce

Sleepwalking
these memories fade
like how shadows
evaporate
in the morning light;
like wisps of smoke
that i can't hold.
and if i could capture it
in my lungs, would your name
still linger on my tongue?
it's not enough to cling
and hope that you remain.
my mind is in a state
of decay
and gradually everything
will be erased.
what once was, is now a dream.
and tears collect on my pillow
because i don't have
the will to wake up;
because i'm so afraid
to face my falling mind;
because nothing's worse
than the silence inside,
ebbing at my bones and
corroding my hold on
reality.
you can't call it an escape, when i still wear a ball and chain.

Legacy: A Samurai Jack FanFiction
Legacy
A Samurai Jack Fanfiction
Even with his life long mission finally complete, after all this time, there still was a void in the samurai prince’s heart. There was a shrine – a memorial of sorts – built for her quickly after the wedding had turned into what might as well have been a funeral. He would visit it every day of his life, for solace, for guidance.
A while after, as life meandered along as if nothing unspeakably evil had ever occurred, he had countless scribes help him document his journeys. Beginning at the first attack, following his years of training, up to his victory after his return from a now nonexistent future. An extinguished future with now negated souls, who all had loved him dearly. The manuscript would live in the land’s mythos forever.
His mother and father, even in knowing that his wound was deep and to never fully heal, urged him to consider someone for a bride. As a prince first and foremost now, and a samurai second, he had

Rain
I need the rain to come and wash away the blood,
I don’t want you to see.
It’s flowing in a flood,
Now that I set it free.
I’m caked as if it’s mud,
But it doesn’t belong to me.
I’m sitting here alone,
Looking up at the cloudless sky.
Without the rain how can I hide?
Exposed like this I cannot lie.
Is it possible to pretend they just died?
So I need the rain to come and wash away the blood,
I don’t want you to see.
It’s flowing in a flood,
Now that I set free.
I’m caked as if it’s mud,
But it doesn’t belong to me.
This drought parched land holds no remorse.
The warm dry wind blows teasingly.
As it whispered though my hair.
I watch the sky hopelessly,
I know nobody cares.
So I need the rain to come and wash away the blood,
I don’t wasn’t you to see.
It’s flowing in a flood,
Now that I set it free.
I’m caked as I fit’s mud,
But it doesn’t belong to me.

Angel
I’m an angel,
But I’m not coming down from the clouds above,
I’m clawing my way out of the ground below.
I’m an angel,
But when I appear, instead of telling the mortals to have no fear,
I tell them to run if they still can.
I’m an angel,
But I haven’t come to save the righteous,
Instead my mission is to damn them all.
I’m an angel,
But I wear no heavenly robe,
For I am clothed in nothing but black.
I’m an angel,
But I’m not clean,
There’s too much blood covering me.
I’m an angel,
But I can’t play soothing music on the harp,
My hands already wield a double edged sword.
I’m an angel,
But my wings aren’t snow-white,
They’re as black as my heart.
I’m an angel,
But you can’t fell safe around me,
Because I radiate Fear and Death.
I’m an angel,
But my halo is made of fire,
Because I’m an angel from Hell

Finding someone just to lose them soon after
Has become a common occurrence in my life
And though I try my best to break the cycle
All my efforts seem to be in vain
It's enough to make you want to give up
Any hope for a different outcome

I've spent too much time waiting for a person
Who is the polar opposite of all the others
But I still hold out hope that I'll find them
Even though all I've done is suffer

They're here one second and gone the next
It's almost like they don't even exist
Why can't these good things ever last?
Will my future always be a retread of the past?
This has all become too familiar for me
I want to break from the ordinary
I want a love that isn't temporary

Keeping a positive outlook is easier said than done
Just when all the storm clouds start to disappear
Someone goes and leaves my heart torn once again
Eliminating any chance for the skies to remain clear

I've spent too much time waiting for a person
Who will be the opposite of all the others
But I still hold out hope that I'll find them
Even though all I've done is suffer

They're here one second and gone the next
It's almost like they don't even exist
Why can't these good things ever last?
Will my future always be a retread of the past?
This has all become too familiar for me
I want to break from the ordinary
I want a love that isn't temporary

Give me a sign that better things will come
Cause all I have to cling onto is the belief
That I'll end up with a different result before long
And at this point even that is starting to fade

Oh, They're here one second and gone the next
It's almost like they don't even exist
Why can't these good things ever last?
Will my future always be a retread of the past?
This has all become too familiar for me
I want to break from the ordinary
I want a love that isn't temporary

Give me a sign that proves
Love can be more than temporary
I walked in with no expectations
Just wanted a simple conversation
No one would give me the time of day
That all changed when I met you
Words flowed between us so effortlessly
You always put my restless heart at ease

When did everything between us change?
When did the sunshine turn to rain?
Why'd you let the ocean carry you away?

I'm slipping under the waves
With no one to rescue me
I'm slipping under the waves
With only the echo of my voice
Bouncing off the waves to comfort me

Before you I never opened up to anyone
But as I got to know you I took a chance
And let all my defenses melt away
I felt a kinship between us and I was right
We were one and the same, in perfect sync
No one could drive a wedge between us

When did everything between us change?
When did the sunshine turn to rain?
Why'd you let the ocean carry you away?

I'm slipping under the waves
With no one to rescue me
I'm slipping under the waves
With only the echo of my voice
Bouncing off the waves to comfort me

I thought we would last forever
But that was a foolish pipe dream
I really should have known better
As this has happened to me before
But I thought you were different
I thought I found my happy ending
Until you decided to leave me stranded at sea
And now that everything is over
I have to pay the heaviest price of all

I'm slipping under the waves
With no one to rescue me
I'm slipping under the waves
With only the echo of my voice
Bouncing off the waves to comfort me

My body grows heavier by the second
It's as if I was slowly turning to stone
I can barely keep my head above water
My arms are bound to give out soon
I have no choice but to follow suit
And let myself sink beneath the waves
Under The Waves
This is a piece that I have been working on for quite some time. I first came up with the title months ago. I would start writing some lines but hated them and decided to scrap them. This kept happening whenever I revisited it and I thought it would remain just an empty title. That is until inspiration struck me today and I just knew I had to act on it. Surprisingly, this came together faster than I expected. I'm glad to have finally finished this one.

We're taught to put on a strong face
Suffer in silence and leave no trace
Of our true feelings when we walk outside
We must never break this calculated character
Cause the second you do, it's all over
They will ostracize you for life

I've had enough
It's time to use my voice
And speak honestly

Just cause I'm sensitive
Doesn't mean that I am weak
I might shed a tear or two
But it won't be over you
Just cause I can empathize
Doesn't mean others can use me
My skin might rip and tear
But it will always heal

I once blindly followed their toxic mindset
As other people kept bombarding my walls
Until they became frail and paper thin
When the final stone was cast, they fell
And all the emotions beneath the surface
Swallowed me whole, refusing to let go
Until I acknowledged them as part of me
Only then did the error of my ways become clear

I've had enough
It's time to use my voice
And speak honestly

Just cause I'm sensitive
Doesn't mean that I am weak
I might shed a tear or two
But it won't be over you
Just cause I can empathize
Doesn't mean others can use me
My skin might rip and tear
But it will always heal

I can hear their voices judging me
But I won't back down this time
They'll never defeat me so long as
They keep refusing to admit that
The wounded souls behind their dead eyes
Have complete control over them

Just cause I'm sensitive
Doesn't mean that I am weak
I might shed a tear or two
But it won't be over you
Just cause I can empathize
Doesn't mean others can use me
My skin might rip and tear
But it will always heal

Just cause I'm sensitive
Doesn't mean that I am weak
I might shed a tear or two
But it won't be over you
Just cause I can empathize
Doesn't mean others can use me
My skin might rip and tear
But it will always heal

I'm sensitive, but I'm not weak
I'm Sensitive
This is for all the people who have been in a similar place.

Lying alone on this old bed
I'm trying my best to sleep
But I can't shake this feeling of dread

There's an empty space next to me
Where your body used to lie
Each night I sense a presence come alive

You're no longer here
But I still feel you
You're no longer here
But I still feel you
You're no longer here
But I still feel you

I tell myself nothing's there
But it becomes harder to believe
Once the sensation washes over my skin

The more I try to fight it
The weaker my will becomes
I say I want to be left alone
But I know that's not true

You're no longer here
But I still feel you
You're no longer here
But I still feel you
You're no longer here
But I still feel you

My fingers move across my body
But I'm not the one controlling them
They're being guided by phantom limbs

I still feel you
I still feel you
I still feel you
I still feel you
I still feel you
I still feel you
You were chasing the unattainable
And got your heart broken yet again
I told you this was gonna happen
But you refused to take my advice
So I bit my tongue and supported you
Even though you've never done the same for me

I gave you a shoulder to lean on
And you soaked up all the attention
But when I needed someone to confide in
You paid me back with a cold shoulder

As soon as you're done mourning
You go off on the hunt once again
Like nothing ever happened to you
And when it all inevitably falls apart
You run to me with tears in your eyes
Ready to drag me down so I can share your misery

I gave you a shoulder to lean on
And you soaked up all the attention
But when I needed someone to confide in
You paid me back with a cold shoulder

I gave you a shoulder to lean on
But when I needed someone to do the same
Your sympathy was nowhere to be found
All you gave me was a cold shoulder

I'm done giving all I have
Just to get nothing in return
It's time you learned
What it's like to go it alone

I gave you a shoulder to lean on
And you soaked up all the attention
But when I needed someone to confide in
You paid me back with a cold shoulder

And now I'm finally ready
To return the favor
Cold Shoulder
This one isn't really personal. It's more something I created from situations I have observed.
