Hope.
I can see you there, In my Mind's Eye.
A flickering light,
altogether you burn brighter than my dreams.
A beacon of solitude in a vast open sea
of despair.

Millions of hands outstretch towards you,
grasping desperately at your essence.
We want what we can't have,
and the whole of us can never have you.
You're an almighty power,
floating aimlessly through the dark expanse of the mind.
You hide yourself behind layers of pain and suffering,
like a twisted game of hide and seek.

Your words are mighty and the light you bring even greater,
but you are useless to me.
Your words are like tiny paper airplanes,
slamming against the window panes
of old schools who are in such disrepair,
that they are completely forgotten.
Your 'light', as they call it,
means nothing.
It's a match in a wet cave,
doomed to be snuffed out with each drip.

Perhaps they will all rely on you,
but not I.
I have no use for such an almighty thing.
Quite frankly,
who needs hope?

Poignantly beautiful.
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

Title
It's fascinating
How it all works.
Joy becomes a meaningless and unobtainable token,
something everyone else displays with pride.

I stare at my ceiling now.
I don't find happiness in what I used to,
instead I let my mind run blank
and my eyes dry.
I don't have any tears left,
but sometimes I can imagine I do.
When my imagination still works,
that is.

I used to love dancing.
Now I can't take a few steps out of my room,
without feeling like the world
has crushed me beneath it's boot.
Music becomes a jumbled blur of ugly tones
and mind-numbing beats.
I can't understand the lyrics anymore,
but I hope they sound nice.

The colors,
how they've all drained from my life,
drop by drop.
I can't even tell what my favorite color is anymore.
It's all-

Grey.

I love the rename!

Um... hm. Going off of your avatar, do something with the themes of space, isolation, and feelings of inconsequence in the presence of distant giants
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

Stars, Loneliness and everything In-between.
My eyes twinkle brightly,
reflecting the gorgeous lights of stars
that dance above my head.
How long have I been out here?

Perhaps I'll never know.
I don't mind it,
floating through an endless expanse
of twinkling balls of flame and-
steady planets.
My hands graze over their surface,
and I feel as if i'm powerful.
Is this how the gods feel?
Powerful yet-
Alone in such an empty space?

I feel my body grow cold,
The warmth of the stars blotted out.
Before me stands a giant,
his body built of gas and stardust.
He speaks in tongues I don't understand-
Have I been alone for so long?
His eyes twinkle like stars,
as I slowly float by him.

Does god feel so small,
standing near his creations?
I can't comprehend his size,
as he stays steady against the beat of time.
Giants of Gas and Fire,
they float around me in silent judgement.
'How pitiful.'
They're voices are bone-rattling,
yet I feel at peace.
'Alone here? In the Mind-space?
I don't know what they speak of,
but I do not care.
I feel like nothing,
my feeling of power and mightiness gone
as I slowly float back into the inky embrace.

The farther I float, the tinier they appear.
Still I can feel the insignificance,
as I watch them float in silence.
I'm not alone out here;
I have my thoughts.
Gas Giants have only the patter
of diamond rain to keep them company.

Maybe I am alone out here.
But every God is alone,
once in a while.

That end is chilling.
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

Title 2.0
How many times will this happen?
I can no longer speak my own mind,
for my thoughts become yours.
With your mangled hands,
wet with the tears of my words,
you meld them
into weapons to wield against me.

My words become yours.
I speak my peace,
and yet you turn my roses and hearts
into swords and arrows.
You turn them against me,
and yet I welcome it with open arms.

Perhaps i'm just lonely, and that's why I stay.
I have no escape anymore,
aside from the sweet embrace of the cold unknown.
My thoughts and words will never be my own,
My emotions are discarded
and became nothing but a joke for you.

I can taste the poison on my lips,
as you force my own twisted words back down my throat.
Can I never be the same again?
No, I think not.
It's poisonous,
but it seems that my mind has melded into Antitoxin.
