Into Your Eyes
I gaze into your eyes so deep, so deep
you show me a world almost cosmic
I feel like I've been waiting forever
I've never felt like this before
I think I'm falling; I can't let go
now that I'm here, there is no turning back
into your eyes I perish, into your soul
baby, let me show you, let me show you all the love I hold
A vice with a price
I was not ready for my twentieth birthday. Even less ready to celebrate it just two weeks after my father had passed away. I expected a book, a movie, the odd gift card. But, the present I received from my boyfriend was the most unusual. It wasn't a present adorned in bows, ribbons and frills. It wasn't stashed away beneath layers of crinkly paper. Nevertheless, it was no less valuable and under the circumstances, no less perfect. Never did I expect the two words "I quit", to be the cause of my smile.
Neil shared the same vice as my father, a vice that displeased me above all else. He was a chain smoker too. My father was diagnosed with lung cancer five years ago. After undergoing extensive chemotherapy and radiation treatment, he finally lost the battle, leaving me to grieve alone in the world. Smoking became one of those things I detested on a knee-jerk reaction; and when Neil quit, it was the biggest comfort anyone had given me.
My father always promised me the same
Of Halos and Horns
Do not be fooled by the halo
It is your crown of thorns
There is no such thing as saintlike
Only Evil disguising its devious horns
Where is your virtue ?
What more is there to pretend ?
Do you even see yourself
Through the web of lies you spin ?
This damage, how will you undo ?
For this deceit, how will you amend ?
Your spite, you deny
Your sins, you defend
Wallow in your pride
Serve none but yourself
The rest is sordid means to an end
Thriving in a world of your own devising
Conspiring in ways 'unique'
You are a pawn of your own game
The venom you incite poisons your heart
The soul is barren when it is weak,
You reap what you sow, not what you seek
The touch that withers and fades
Aspires the Phoenix at its rebuttal
With its last tremor, it erupts in flames
To sire a new dawn on the edge of the precipice
On fragile wings and shivers of subtle
You come alive in my dreams
You come to me
Together we fight my nightmares,
And you belong to me
Even in my dreams
I know this is untrue
I know I'll be awake,
But for now I want to be with you till I do
My nightmares are fringed with angst
The demons in pursuit, they lie
Together we shall conquer my battles
Release me from my bane,
You and I
I waited all my life for you, my savior
And now I know why
You have my heart, beloved
Without you, I shall die
I try to stay away
I try to stay out of your way,
But you are already bound so far
I never knew
Love could be so bizarre
Forever is a long shot
When February's won't fade
You mean the world to me
Despite what I said
I tell myself that it doesn't hurt that bad
That it's all in my head,
It only hurts 'cause I want it to
I'll be over you,
But before I will be dead
Maybe it's true
Maybe I don't want to go on without you,
But fate won't undo
Because you and I are not meant to be,
Because you are my favourite fantasy
Transformers: We Came in WarTransformers: We Came in War
Setting: Sometime during the Bay films
Characters: Optimus Prime
We came to this planet because ours was gone.
The quest for power consumed our home. The need for domination destroyed us. Still we live, and yet there is a piece in each of us that has been decimated forever. We will never recover what we have lost.
I look down upon this planet, and I wonder why we try.
It is evident by now that we have lost the capacity for peace. War follows in our wake. We came to retrieve the AllSpark, which has long since been lost, and we are still here. All that came of attempting to revive our planet was the relocation of the war from our planet of death to this planet of life. There is so much life on this planet. All of it we have sworn to protect. This is the promise we have made to them. But the promise would not need to have been made if we had never co
