From the Skies Above
To the Earth Below
Through the Waves of the Oceanic Abyss
The Sands of Time Reminisce
-Chant of the Ageless Time
Dragon rise to raze our lives
We've no option but to dive
Our soaring scourge stalks us deep
Wings, talons, and fangs that make us weep
Oh roaring beasts that wedge open a gaping hole
They reach out and capture our aching soul
Wrath is what they deliver to our home
With Nothing left to us but to roam
The darkness is a wonderful place
where one feels no disgrace.
Its cold, dank air comforts the soul
and makes it easy to ignore this hole.
What once filled my chest?
Was it happiness? Joy? Hope?
I know such things don't exist
for the darkness tells me to resist
The darkness tells me the truth
and obey nothing so uncouth
However so, there's a piece of me that wishes the darkness to be a lie
and for me to say goodbye.
Oh where is my Beacon of Light?
The darkness holds me tight
but now I seek the light
I struggle and break free at last
though the darkness approaches fast
“Light, I wish to be taken in,
For I do not want the darkness to win.”
“What do you seek, stray child?” The light doth speak
“I no longer strive to be weak!”
“Then child, reach out to me, for I am your beacon of light you seek.”
The darkness grows weak and walks away
So the light rests for another day
I step into a void of nothing
Hoping I find something.
I ask again, what once fills my chest?
Pieces come together , yet I hope to find the rest.
I shout for the light once more
yet the darkness returns to settle the score.
I jump towards light but fall back to the darkness
The darkness encroaches and wraps around me and fills me
with lies that I know be false, until my Beacon of Light pushed away the dark.
“Reach out for me again, stray child and find your way,
for once you're by my side, you can forever stay.”
The light hath spoken,
to that I have awoken
I will now run until I reach the light,
and for once I'm there, I will hold forever tight
For the Beacon of Light is also my heart
That which we will never be apart.
