Legend of RaikouKishi~PROLOGUE~
In a little town surrounded by nothing, but trees and mist, where no one dares to go near, nor leave, there is a girl. With eyes that burn like the hottest fires, are as cold as the icy wastelands, fiercer than the wild beasts, deeper than the depths of the ocean, mysterious as space, and as calm and hidden as a misty forest. Hair that flows like the sun, when unlocked, darker than the night, when caged, and as clear as glass, when hidden. She has an unbelievable ability. She is unlike any other person. Compared to others she is the black lily in a field of roses. She lives like everyone else, but holds the power of life and within. Her “parents” are nothing like this. She is as sweet as pie, while her parents are as vile as the devil’s heart. You may ask how this could be. Two ordinary, and mean people, have a kind, and gifted daughter. Well, I guess I’ll have to tell you the legend of Raikoukishi.
Too Many SidesShe didn’t ask to be
She didn’t ask to leave
She just was~
Shining like the sun
Warming with her touch
Happy and alone~
Rain takes her sight
Cold takes her touch
Lies kill her~
A mask is worn
Wings tied with thorns
A hollow heart~
Anger thrown in grief
Fear of lying love
Locked away rivers~
A broken wine bottle
Shattered pieces of glass
A wounded heart~
Happy, sad, angry, scared
Just like the wind
Ever changing directions~
She is trapped inside
Her mind controlling her
Too many sides~
Fighting to be real
She struggles from within
Trying to smile~
Listening to them all
Following what they say
She runs away~
Look into her eyes
Gift of LoveI know times are tough and
we can’t always get what we want
in a world that is too far gone.
I just hope that I can make you happy
like you make me every day.
I know I only have $1.87 but,
I still want to try, to make you happy.
I look myself in the mirror and
after little to no thought I got rid of
my most prized possession to get $21.87.
I looked everywhere to find that perfect gift for you.
I finally found it.
That night when I got home I waited for you.
But little did I know
that you would do the same thing too.
You looked at me in shock when you saw what I had done for you.
We end up with a platinum watch chain
for a missing watch and
fancy combs for hair that is no longer.
Not to worry though.
We can get those back but, as long as I love you
and you love we will be fine.
What You Left BehindSo close yet so far
We see the same sea
We wish upon a star
Still you are not with me
Your voice was so sweet
Not for the U.S. Navy
But for when we meet
With our hearts strong and heavy
I listen to the bells
Ringing and chiming and crying
To forget what your story tells
And watch them all trying
Hearing you speak back then
I would always listen enchanted
Now I count to ten
Hoping my wish has been granted
You served your country true
Though so many won’t know
So I will stand too
So that they won’t go also
Even though you have left
You didn’t leave me blind
And though you are bereft
Know grandfather, what you left behind
My Beating HeartMy heart is pounding… My voice is shaking… My head is spinning… Can’t you feel? Feel me trembling… Beneath your touch? ………
I look into your eyes… To find a piece of mind… When all I see is… You starring back at me.
What is it you could possibly see? I am alone, undefined by anyone or anything. So why is it you’re drawn to me? Please don’t be sympathetic. Please don’t cry for me. I don’t need anyone or anything. I’m okay living this way. You may say it’s not a life just a scene played over and over each day. Well I’ve got news for you.
My breath is leaving me… My lips quivering… My eyes flooding… Can’t you see? See me frozen under your gaze?
Your eyes have pierced my shield… You’ve stormed the castle walls… You slayed the dragons in your way and you’ve taken me away……………
