Chapter 2~Black and BloodthirstyNathan had always been haunted by nightmares, for as long as he could remember. And most of them didn’t even make sense. Fighting monsters, wielding blades, being sucked into the earth. And this night was not an exception.He was in a large cave, deep underground. It would have been completely dark, but the large, jagged crystals that protruded messily from the cave floor emitted a turquoise light that illuminated the cavern. Large mushrooms, black in color with light blue spots dotted the cave and parts of the cave floor was mossy and wet. in the back were two massive thrones, able to sit giants as they towered ten feet tall. It wasn’t the warm, golden thorne you’d find in a little girl’s story book. They were dark and twisted, made out of pure obsidian. It looked like something out of a fairytale. That fairytale soon turned into a nightmare as a figure began to manifest inside the room.He was made en
Chapter 1~Who Let the Dogs OutThe dark lantern swung dimly in the chilly ally. The wind whispered in hushed tones, picking up crumpled pieces of paper and flung them across the uneven slabs of stone. Haunting beams of silver light was being cast down by the bright moon which hung looming over the town, half shadowed by puffy, dark clouds. The young boy was crouched behind a stack of UPS boxes in the alley, a long black coat going down to his knees as he was curled up, nibbling off of the ends of a piece of moldy bread. His neck was covered by a thick black and green scarf, which wrapped its way around his throat, ripped and stained, it was a piece of junk, but the boy held it firmly in one hand, as if it was the most important thing in the world.He was just a kid. Seven years old, with ebon black hair that tangled its way down to the bottom of his ears. His skin was an unnatural pale, and his ribs could be seen through his wet, dark t-shirt. He didn’t wear any shoes
Why I Love YouYou always ask, why do you love me?I always say, how can you not see?If you've forgotten, I'll remind you,And maybe this time you'll remember, too.You've been there when things were rough,You've been around when things were tough.You've listened to my agonized cries,You've forgiven all of my lies.When I come home from a long day,I always look forward to what you have to say.Always right by my side,Always there when I've died.You've stuck through all of my bullshit,You've even taken a few hits.You've always returned to me,You've always held my heart's key.After everything we've been through,I need you to know how much I love you.The most important thing in my life,Taking away all of my strife.Your breath, the only thing I hear,Tickling up against my ear.Staying up with conversation very late,Denying responsibility and fate.Jokes with gut busting laughter,Crying and smiling after.All of your wit and guile,We can goof around for a while.For your age, you are so
Lux and NoxIt has always been a balance,The song of dark and light.Never free, always dense,Rising with the dawn and falling with night.Circling in perfect harmony,Sun and moon, yin and yang.Aiding the other to see,While the steel of war rang.Teetering on the edge of a scale,Leaning towards light, towards dark.One day, one's strength will fail,And their weakness forever marked.Their names are Lux and Nox,The embodiment of dusk and dawn.They make up the trees, river and rocks,The birds in the skies, the beasts in the musk.They are off balance and dazed,Their hearts filled with hate and rage.Our world their war has razed,They make up our earth, we are trapped in a cage.We can only sit by and see,As these titans wage their war.As long as they hate, we shall never be free.And they don't even remember what they were fighting for.
Descent into InsanityLooking through cracked mirror,It’s like gazing into another world.I see a boy who has shed not a tear,Before his entire life unfurled. Building upon his fantasy,Able to be knights and kings.Soaring over the bluest seas,Freedom came with those wings.Protected by a shield of light,Retreating into a mother’s embrace.Guarded from the darkest nights,No fears, never alone would he have to face.Last journey, I thought it would be fun.Blood red sun being shone,It ended with the ring of a gun,And suddenly I was alone.Crying out for them to stay,This was my first step into insanity.As the night took over day,The fears and shadows finally reached me.Swept away by shifting winds,I was brought to a living hell.Stripped down several skins,And down into madness I fell.There, I was trained not to care,I was trained to live as a machine.I was the monster in your nightmares,The one fated to take away your dreams.My first peace came with crimson
When Daylight EndsThe last light of a dying day,The sun's final golden rays.Casting shadow on the horizon,The hours have come and are done.Like the sun, we all come and go.Days always come to a close.Some die out faster than most,And it's just another memory, another ghost.A lot can happen in the time of a day,Whether the skies be golden, blue or grey.The world can be showered with frost,The leaves of a tree can be lost.There can be a sudden death,Or someone taking their first breath.You can meet lifelong friends,Or be shrouded in sorrow when a relationship ends.The sun looks back in reflection,The memories a swirling collection.Did it shine enough light,Did it fight hard enough in the fight.Fading beyond the horizon,It has finished its last run.And as the sun dies,It whispers its final goodbyes.
