Glass Heart


Glass Heart

A little poem I wrote for Easter. 🙂

The world is a dark place
People gave it a marred face
And though in it I have no part
It still shatters my glass heart

I stopped reading the news
Full of all its tainted views
All around me is disaster
Faces have turned to plaster

People have all lost hope
In the lack of light they grope
Grasping onto slivers of joy
But it’s all an evil ploy

Our savior we murdered
See you not why I’m burdened?
And because in it I have part
It has shattered my glass heart

Of course it’s moody. What did you expect from me? XP

Swimming


deepsea-653x0_q80_crop-smart

I was inspired…

Two people told me to swim once, so swim I did.
Three others told me to dive once, so dive I did.
One person told me to float once, so float I did.
But one day I thought, why?
Why swim?
Why dive?
Why float?
There was no reason, so sink I did.
Then I heard a voice-
It called to me and gave me purpose.
So I swam
And dived
And floated
And I told everyone to do the same.
But they saw no reason in it, so sink they did.
This made me sorrowful, and I wept.
Then I realized I had purpose
And they did not
So I called.
I told them of the purpose-
They only had to believe.
Some did.
They swam
And dived
And floated.
But the others could not believe.
They wanted to rest
And to be left alone.
So they sank deeper,
And deeper.
And I saw them no more.

Persecution — Ash Philosopher Kohl


opisinacomph-journal-penmightierthansword

The pen is mightier than the sword

Hey guys, this is a poem I wrote for my fantasy series Taker. I might or might not include it in the story. It’s essentially lore— the perspective of an Ash Philospher, Kohl, looking on as the Humans turn on each other. The English/Common Tongue version is below, followed by the original (written in actual Sythh, the language of the Ash).

Hiding from everyone in the world
Once welcomed, now a thing of old
Hunters chase relentlessly through the cold
Once valued, now betrayed and sold

Heroes turned into monsters
Veterans with no honors
Through hatred they grow stronger
With bitterness they conquer

One by one they kill each other
Brother turns against brother
Blood of one makes them seek another
One man kills the son of his mother

In their fear they created mutants
They destroyed with amusement
We should have been more prudent
For such are these Humans

Fortress Ft. Anna Belmonte


Hey guys, so I realize that I’m gradually turning this blog into a multimedia blog versus a writing blog with all the videos I’ve been posting lately, but this is a project that is actually pretty close to my heart because it’s a song I wrote for my girlfriend, Anna (you can find her blog over here) and I actually convinced her to sing in it for me. 🙂 So, here’s the final song which I figured you guys could listen to if you’re interestedEnjoy. 🙂

Lyrics

*verse*
Now we go home
Carrying weights of stone
War- over now we know
Strife outside ceased
But our hearts need peace
Love- making bonds increase
*build-up*
I solemnly swear to protect you forever
*drop*

Let our song rise up in the night
From our fortress shining so bright
Standing strong in every fight
Come now, bring the light

*verse*
Two yet we’re one
All the battles won
Walls- keep us safe like none
Hide here with me
In the fortress lee
Stay- I’ll give you safety
*build-up*
I solemnly swear to protect you forever
*drop*
Let our song rise up in the night
From our fortress shining so bright
Standing strong in every fight 
Come now, bring the light
Hope in our hearts beating harder
Love in our veins flowing faster
Faith in God our Lord and Master
Fortress, shields forever
*bridge*

*drop B*

Hold tight to me
That I may breathe
Our love binds tight
Holds us high

Fortress shields us
God our Master keeps us
Candle in the night

Bring the light

*drop*
Let our song rise up in the night
From our fortress shining so bright
Standing strong in every fight 
Come now, bring the light
Hope in our hearts beating harder
Love in our veins flowing faster
Faith in God our Lord and Master
Fortress, shields forever
I hope you enjoyed this song, because I really enjoyed creating it. 🙂

Ache


Don't get it yet? *sigh* I did a bad job didn't I?

Don’t get it yet? *sigh* I did a bad job didn’t I?

This was an experimental poem. The first I’ve ever done of it’s kind. I’ll leave it up to you guys to decide how successful I was. If you see it, go ahead and tell me. If not, tell me that too, and I can embarrassedly explain what it is. XP Apart from that, enjoy 🙂

See, hear, speak… . .  .
Young, and yet body creaks
Healthy, but sans three senses
Seeing life through many lenses
Only one perspective matters
Time wrote many new chapters
Bodies aching for the absent touch
Keeping silent; voicing it is too much
Smells makes tears in our eyes
Empty walls ignore our cries
A thousand pixels are her face
Wanting another place
Time travels forward…
We move backward
Looking to cure the ache
Ignoring our tears’ bleak lake
