Mind's TormentIdeas are always just out of reach.
Just as they come into your mind's veiw, they fly away again.
I can't seem to ever grasp hold.
It's like trying to catch a butterfly.
Always just out of reach.
Always a finger's breadth away.
Why do I even bother sometimes?
It's so hard to communicate just what my soul wants to say.
It's so hard to open up.
Like a cage around the words I need to say.
The words I want to say.
But it always eludes me.
Dream's Insanity: Part 16Peri walked at a solemn pace beside Leo.
The graveyard was right underground.
"Leo!" A voice came from behind them.
"Mike?! What's wrong?"
Mikey huffed slightly from running. "Rhi... said that... she couldn't be left alone."
"Why not?" Peri asked in suprise.
"There are too many mourners here that will not hesitate to kill you." Leo said.
Honestly, Peri was getting sick of it.
But she didn't blame them.
"We'll go down together." Mike finally said, his breath caught up.
They kept walking until they reached the chambers.
There were headstones and crosses everywhere, each marking a different person's name.
Some were women, some were men.
Some of them were even children.
Peri's eyes filled as she read each name.
Husbands, brothers, neices, nephews...
They were all there.
"Hey..." A man's voice said.
They all turned.
"It's... it's you..." His eyes widened in realisation. "It's you!"
Mikey stepped forward. "Now, Haile, we don't want any trouble..."
"Why are you protecting that thin
All is not as it seems...Somehow,
A picture is always more creepy,
When drawn by a child.
Horrors spring off their pages,
But their innocence knows no bounds.
How is it possible?
It's in their very souls.
They see more than we do,
They feel more than we do.
But they keep their optimism,
Their total trust.
A man with no face.
THE man with no face...
Our eyes see some things,
A child's eyes see more.
Innocent eyes see most,
But no eyes see all...
Dream's Insanity: Part 15Rhi heard a pair of footsteps behind her.
Mike had to follow, didn't he?
"Commander! Commander..." He called after her, getting slightly out of breath.
"What is it, Mike? I'm busy..."
"Look, I don't know why or how you lost it like that, but it's not-"
Rhi cut him off. "We'll talk in here, if you have to..."
They went over to a small room that looked like it hadn't been used in a while.
The door opened then closed automatically, like every other door in there.
"What?" She said, looking up at him.
"It's not professional. This isn't like you."
"What isn't like me? I'm just a sad, hollow shell that only knows anger and hurt."
"That's ridiculous, Rhi, you're the strongest person I know."
Rhi stopped and shook her head.
"I'm not, though.
I never have been."
"What about everything that's happened? Most people would have crumbled by now." Mike said.
He was bewildered.
"If it wasn't for you...
If it wasn't for everyone else...
I would have crumbled years ago."
Rhi kept going, not bother
ThunderstormLight that fires the sky.
A shock that rends the darkness,
And sets the stars ablaze again.
Shadows thrown across the walls.
A fright that stops your heart,
And brings your fear alive again.
Sound booming through the air.
A force that knoocks whole buildings,
And leaves destruction in its wake again.
SolaceShe never slept well in the dark,
not without the children of the sun and moon
to guide her weary lids home.
Guided by the aftermath, she was always two steps behind.
What did the world look like to the girl who had been through it all?
Braved the heaviest of storms,
yet skipping over cracks in the pavement.
They said her eyes were the wisps of clouds before the storm.
To him they were reflections of pages overlooked.
She said it was like she lived the life of someone she had never met.
Laid out to dry, yesterdays news.
He knew her as the girl who was built to never collapse.
He wished he was too.
He loved her more than words could say, and yet her pain was such,
that at times, he feared she wouldn’t make it.
But on nights like these, even when it threatened to consume her,
he became convinced that somehow she would.
