wandering thoughtI look to the sky, the clouds spread like a patchy blanket against the starry night sky, and think to myself about the beauty of it all. The chill night air, the stars themselves. We really are small compared to the massiveness of the universe. I being a lonely speck, a drop in the bucket. But it's okay. This speck knows what to do in life. This one drop has a purpose. That purpose is to live, to love, to know happiness.In a few short months, or maybe even the span of my entire life, I've learned about being content with those around you. Those closest to us are the meat, the sustenence that keeps us going. Without those people, there is failure to thrive, failure to be.We, are like stars...each of us shines brightly, but are nothing without the others around us shining brightly (or softly) as well.
starsI look the skyThe stars seem so coldWhy do I shiverThough the air seems so hot?Darkness surroundsCovered with pinpointsof lightI feel so aloneBlanketed by the nightWhere are youWhen I need you the most?Gone awayHelping someone else in need.Cling to meEmbrace meI need you beside meInstead you are somewhere elseWhile I am left behind.But still I remainHopeful I am in your heartWhere I can truly soarUntil then I waitThoughts of you to keep me warm.

Poison on the blade! He gave a slight laugh."Why do you laugh?" his attacker asked, tight-lipped and barely controlling the rage threatening to overtake him. Meanwhile his arm continued to feel as if it were on fire, and that fire began to slowly spread. But that was of no concern to the demon lord."Poison? I would have thought that to be beneath you. I suppose I was wrong. No matter. Your poison will have little effect on me," he explained to his adversary."Is that so? We shall see," was the response.Again, his attacker advanced and their blades connected. His arm still burned, but now it was lessening. He was absorbing the poison. He smiled again.

He shivered slightly despite not being cold and shifted his gaze directly in front of him. There, shrouded in shadow, was his enemy. His opponent stared fixedly back at him, hand ready to draw his weapon. He drew his sword. The other combatant rushed toward him, sword drawn and swung wide to strike.

the Beast WithinI pushI clawI will draw bloodbut I will not fallYou think me weakbut I can take youI will draw the life from youuntil you can no longer breatheSavage beastlies within my heartPounding at my ribcagewanting to burst outI have to bury itDeny it's even thereFor I know the beast I can becomeIt frightens meand excites meI thirst for bloodI ache for vengenceI weep because of the monsterI know I can becomeWhere is the calmI so desperately seek?Where is the silenceI need to quiet the rageScreaming deep within my soul?I will break youI will make you bleedFor every thing you've done to meI will make you beg and pleadThat I leave you with only a scarand nothing more.
