JourneyingI've gone away to that open placeJourneying by ~FreakMachine
where verdant hills roll on like waves,
and strong-branched bistre trees march across:
a pilgrimage of Christ-like giants,
frozen in time to guide me.
I hear the thunder of my spirit as
mustangs claim the open spaces, and
feel my own voice leave me as the hawks
above me call out.
I am set free to fly with them, to
pound the earth and swallow the wind.
I have forsaken my limits and dissipated
like a mist into the sky.
Mother, I have become the world.
There's a loving tug in the line and
I'm coming home to my feet and
my spine and the muscles that keep me alive;
to the handicaps and the blessed gifts which
balance into the name my parents gave me;
to my healer's heart and my warrior spirit,
and the constant push-and-pull they bring.
But nothing is forgotten, and nothing is lost,
for I have secretly tucked the trees in my hair,
the sky I've hidden in my mouth
and the hills are sinking undetected beneath the skin at my toes.
Horses thunder into my heart, k

The tortured palette, a windless plain.
The sky shook, aren't you there?
Have you forgotten what I promised?
Lonliness the color, pale.
Decorate my walls in despondency and solemnty.
Its all gone, or at least all coherency.
Why do I even stand here?
I've done the best I can to get you to listen.
Confusion. Boredom. Emotion. Solitude.
There's nobody to come home to.
The aeons seemlessly deny all my pleas.
Don't you know how much this hurts me?
Do you even really care about me?
We don't really want to be alone, do we?
But we always seem to do such damage...
Walking aloneWalking alone by ~TheSoleEmulator
Walking down the long dark street…
The shy moon looming over
Behind scattered gray shadows
Watching over the world…
Over us poor souls
Lost in the cold universe
My ragged breath
Stained the icy air
With sallow swirling ghosts
Dissolving into nothingness
My eyes suddenly fall…
On two beating hearts
A boy and his girl
Walking slowly before me
Smiling those hopeful smiles
Looking into each others eyes
The kind of look that can say
What a tongue can never do
They seemed gleaming
Tearing all gathering darkness
Warmth filled me
All gloom vanished
The power of innocent love
Drove the coldness out
I passed them swiftly
The lump in my throat growing
With every step away
A watery something slid
Down my face
And fell to the long dark street
With the tiniest splash
No one could hear
