I live in the shadow of the moon. I have grown and sprouted much too soon. I will try with all my might To live in the bright sunlight. I close my eyes but yet I’m still here. Sitting on a branch next to a pear. My petals are white as snow Because of this fact I know. I will never be awake at day No matter how hard I wish and pray. For I live in the shadow of the moon And I’m slated to sing the nightly tune.
Lost and alone in my head, Can't fall asleep in my bed. Waves crashing in my mind, Death is all I can find. Take a walk on the beach I'm told To clear the cobwebs from their hold. But here I'm alone with the surf, Lost and alone on my own turf. The boat's fog horn echoes my grief, A loss profound beyond belief. The soulful sound takes me away To times more happy I can say. To times when you held me And told me you loved me. Those times are gone for good, Forget I know I should. At night when I close my eyes to sleep, All I can see is our love so deep. As hard as I might try, I can't let go and fly. So here I walk on the beach, Knowing you're out of my reach. But still I yearn and burn For a love I can't earn.
Anger burns in me so bright Like a forest lit on fire. The burning heat envelopes me, My arms becoming red swirls of smoke. My mouth breathes puff of fire, Turning the skies a blood red. I twist and dance in the raging fire, Longing to be set free. My bloodthirsty heart seeks revenge On the one who has caused me pain. The one who has taken my love from me Will know this pain at my hands. Come closer to me, my love. Let me wrap my arms around you. You will feel my love deeply As it cuts through your evil heart. Wolf has never known loss in his life For he has never really lived. He lives the life of the dammed Who have no remorse for their deeds. He has taken Todd away from me And he will suffer for this well. I will take out his bleeding heart And crush it between my hot fingers. My fire is burning brighter With each and every breath. I am ready to enact my revenge On one so worthy as Wolf. OUR GAMES HAVE JUST BEGUN THE DEAD GAME
The winds rush forth with open arms, Crushing me into a cave of sand. Darkness rushes to seal me in, Flashes of light retreating in defeat. I try to hold onto the reds and yellows, But they fade into the expanding darkness. The sand cascades in swirls of beige, Soft but firm it holds me captive. My fingers dig into the packed waves, Leaving evidence of my unhappy plight. I try to climb the growing piles That continue to rise in my mounting despair. My eyes focus on the hole open to the sky, Desperately seeking a way out. I am held tight in this evil creation, A force of nature and hell combined. A sound slowly creeps in from the opening, Gaining volume and force on its way down. It's the sound of laughter and glee From the creature who desires me most. OUR GAMES HAVE JUST BEGUN THE DEAD GAME
A simple evening walk. A time to breathe the fresh air. The streets beckon to me With their soothing lights. Yellow glows of love and laughter are Reflected in dancing spots on wet cobblestones. Spots of light that I can never call my own As they bounce away from my reaching hands. A peek in the windows confirms my suspicion Of lives lived to the fullest. Meals enjoyed and savored, Bringing family members even closer. I walk alone in the night. No one's hand to hold. No meals to share. My thoughts are all for myself. I will search for my friends, Each one of us lonely beings in a small town, Where family is the desired way of life, And loneliness is scorned upon. I am no longer alone. Footsteps are following me, The long strides of a man. Moving closer with each step. Soon he'll be upon me. I run down the slippery stairs, Desperate to outrun my stalker. He is right behind me. I shudder before I slip and fall. I roll down two flights of stairs To land in a ball at the bottom. I'm terrified to lift my head Or check my bruised knees. Someone squats down beside to me. An arm encircles my shoulders. I feel warm and sheltered. I peek through the mess of my hair, And I recognize Todd. A man who has saved me countless times. A man of few words and no fears. A man I want to trust but can't. He helps me stand up. I am wrapped in his strong arms. Soothed by his soft voice. It is hard to stay strong and aloof. It is so hard to be independent. He looks over my bruises. He leads me to the hospital. A few stitches and I'm free. Free to leave with Todd. Todd drives me home to his apartment. Few words are spoken between us. We don't need words to explain our thoughts. A touch, a smile, a wink is all we need. He puts me into his bed and leaves. I wait for his return. I hear him moving about the apartment. I'm left alone until the morning light. At midnight, I have an awful dream, Where Wolf attacks Todd. He takes me in his arms And we fly away to a place in the stars. Wolf has evil inside him. This evil drives him to do Unspeakable things to humans. To me, he's always been compassionate. Thank god it is only a dream. It is Todd who walks into the room and not Wolf. He asks how I feel and is happy with my answer. I tell him I'm ready to go home. His face fills with a scowl. "You're not safe to be living on your own. Wolf might return at any moment." "If he wanted me, He could've taken me at any time. But he didn't. I'm going home." I gather my clothes to get dressed. "No! I will stay with you. Todd stands firm with his hands on his hips. He must always get his way, But this time he won't. We walk by the beach to reach my apartment. The winds are playing their games again. The howling winds are shaking the trees so hard That leaves and limbs flee for their lives. Wolf appears before us, Circled by thrashing winds, Lit up from lightning strikes In colors of orange, yellow, and green. He doesn't appear human, But an omnipotent supernatural force. He raises his arms to increase the winds. His shouts intensify the lightning and thunder. I cannot move. I'm stuck in the sand. Todd is trying to move. Wolf laughs and blows Todd into the ocean. I scream and scream. Louder than ever before. In a higher pitch. He will not win again. Wolf saunters over to me. His swagger sickens me. He takes me in his arms And covers my lips with his. He is taking control of my mind. My strength is oozing out of my body. I don't want to fight anymore. I give in. Wolf lifts me in his arms And gives a hearty roar. He takes me to the skies, Where others of his kind wait. I look down to Earth For any sign of my friends or Todd. I can see no one. But I know they won't give up on me.

Black as night. Dark as death. The evil one has come For me this night. His eyes shine bright. He sees me and more. He walks the earth. At night he's the lore. I cannot run. I cannot hide. He knows my secrets. He knows where I hide. The roses are wilting. They crumple in despair. No colors to lighten their mood. Only black as they tear. He has no footsteps. He walks with the wind. His body whispers past me. His fingers brush my face. He has me in his arms. We take fight with the stars. The man in the moon winks. He takes delight in this game. I close my eyes in defeat. Wolf has won yet again. His cold lips crush mine As I yield to his touch.
Take me away in the soft breeze. Let your fingers flow through my hair. I want to see your warm smile And hunger for your loving touch. Time for that is long past. Victims of the battle we now are. Only hell is waiting for us both. I can see her boat drifting off shore. I will not let her take us. I want to share paradise with you. Warm breezes and soft winds To wrap us tight in its cocoon. No more glory to be had. No more wins for our side. Our losses are steep and many. The mighty have fallen this night. The sun sets for this evening. It has not brought you back to me. I will wait for all eternity Until I have you by my side. OUR GAMES HAVE JUST BEGUN THE DEAD GAME
