Literature
Soldier Song
Today seems slightly grayer
Than the radio has said
Hazy echoes of your voice
Play games inside my head
And people laugh and glibly say
Don't worry, just be strong
And melt into the mindless crowd
And the world just carries on
The empty consolations float
So numbly through my ears
From those who never walk this line
The daily fight with fear
That all our times together have
Already flown away
Wrap my head inside my arms
And hear the Father say
'Love, soldier on
For I number the days
He was never yours alone
So sing a song of praise
Because I love you, wrapped you up
Within each other's arms
Though harm may come and pain befall
The time you have is worth it all
And sing your soldier's song
For I will give you strength to soldier on'
Some days my eyes are glowing
With future dreams of you
Some days it doesn't seem that I
Will ever make it through
But God is ever faithful
And in my weakness, lifts me up
'My child, I know your sorrow
For I first drank this cup'
'Have faith for I am He who

Tonight
Gonna shout it like there's no more time
Hey dance with me
Believe, believe it baby
It's the only way to live
AND HOW WE'RE GONNA LIVE
We shine tonight, we scream inside
All the joy that has no words
The knowing makes us so alive
Dance with me, dance with me
Our souls are glowing, light exploding
Radiating from our eyes
No more darkness, no more night
Give in and give it up
All your shallow dreamings-of
And understand that this is what you've wanted all along
You just never knew, we were too afraid to tell you
But I'm tired of normal
And I'm tired of lying
Twenty years just to sit and watch you dying
So here's the scoop, and here I go
I LOVE YOU AND I LOVE YOUR SOUL
Gonna shout it like there's no more time
Hey dance with me
Believe, believe it baby
It's the only way to live
AND HOW WE'RE GONNA LIVE
We shine tonight, we scream inside
All the joy that has no words
The knowing makes us so alive
Dance with me, dance with me
Our souls are glowing, light exploding
Radiating from our eyes

The Perfect Crime
It's been so long since I could have
What I'm hoping for today
So warm, so warm
It spreads across my chest
Along my arms and down my neck
Quiet joy from your caress
Rain, rain please go away
Don't delay the smile I crave
The winter's cold
But I'll be warm within your hold
Raindrops falling in the snow
Build prison bars or castle spires
Together, they hang all alone
So beautiful, so deadly cold
Now I'm here and I can have
The toxic wish your eyes betray?
So warm, so cold
It spreads across my chest
Along my arms and down my neck
Panicked, fearful, in distress
Rain, rain please go away
Please tell me this can still be saved
Your eyes so cold
They whisper of the lies you've told
Raindrops falling in the snow
Build prison bars or castle spires
Together, they hang all alone
So beautiful, so deadly cold
It's taking more warmth than I have
To melt the evidence away
So cold, so cold
It spreads across my chest
Along my arms and down my neck
Water-soaked and bloody mess
Rain, rain don't go away

Don't You Know
Maybe it doesn't hurt as much
With my senses overloaded
Maybe baby, maybe
Do you wonder why my mind races
And my pulse wins
Don't you know, don't you know
What it's like to be this cold
What it's like to be alone
When I'm all that keeps me company
Love might just wilt and die
Maybe baby, maybe
I wonder what you'd see inside
If you took the time to look
Don't you know, don't you know
What it's like to be this cold
What it's like to be alone
Drop the glass
Drop the glass
Can't see the sand draining away
Time means nothing to you anyways
You wonder why I can't hold still
A moving heart's too tired to cry
Maybe baby, maybe
Did you remember to forget
What this cost us both
You don't know, you don't know
What I'm so desparate to find
Why I'm so desparate tonight
Drop the glass
Drop the glass
Can't see the sand draining away
Time means nothing to you anyways
Drop the glass
Drop the glass
Can't see the sand draining away
Time means nothing to you anyways
Someday reality will dawn
And shape you

Literature
Breaking
Staring at the inside of my eyelids as I'm waiting for the call
Praying that the echo in my mind today will be a bit less hollow
Alarm is going off
Time to spend another day
Living with the aftermath of stupid choices made
You'd think I'd learn
You'd think I'd know
How to break the cycle
How to let the aching go
I'm sorry we believe
That belief can be enough
Insisting that my God exists has never helped me feel loved
We think that we're ok as-is
If we admit He's there
And I think the thing that scares me is how often I don't care
We're rats mocking the cat because the dog said it was fun
We're worms too dumb to comprehend the death brought with the sun
Oh, this pain's routine
It might just keep me going
If scars it leaves can keep my broken heart from ever showing
You'd think I'd learn
You'd think I'd know
How to break the aching
How to let the cycle go
I'm sorry we believe
That belief can be enough
Insisting that my God exists has never helped me feel loved
We think that we're ok as-i

Literature
Kerosene
Lighting jars of kerosene
To smash upon the bloody streets
Amidst these children's empty screams
For monthers who don't come
Why we play these games of death
Is something that I'll never grasp
To create worlds from rape and theft
And death and blood and bones
(C)
These
Are the times
When up is down and right is wrong
How
Will you Stand
When gravity is gone
These
Are the days
To cling fast to all you believe
And stand
Through the storm
And never surrender your dreams
Lighting jars of kerosene
To glimpse the darkened, empty streets
And hear the echoes of the screams
For those who never came
Life's worth so much more than this
Souls aren't a currency for trade
What gives the right to second guess
Life's value when it's not our own
(C)
And though I'm one small voice
Standing through the storm
I'll never stop screaming
I'll never stop screaming
I'll never stop screaming
Until someone hears me
(C) x2
Can you hear me?

Larina
Swinging at the park
Down the street, round the bend
Thinking it would be so welcome to be free of life again
'Cause you grow up
And you grow away
And you learn as you live
And you fight for the day
That you'll be all you wanted and you'll find all your dreams
But you come to these points
Where you long just to see
(C)
A minute in time through the eyes of a child
A second of freedom in her dandelion's flight
A moment of joy as she dances and sings
A shadow of hope in her vibrant dreams
So I'm swinging at the park
Down the street, round the bend
Watching her float on her sunbeams again
Soon she'll grow up
And she'll grow away
And I'll long for her song
And I'll beg her to stay
She'll become all she's wanted and she'll find all her dreams
But she'll come to a point
When she longs just to see
(C)
She's the closest to an angel that I've ever been
And I'd die just to spare her the heartache life spends
But I know she'll live on through whatever it brings
And I'll wait in the park for her un

Renew
Tearing up my mind
How can this be real
Blinded by my tears
Overcome with guilt
Is this all my fault
Naked on the floor
Soap can't wash away
The filthiness of force
Some scars last forever
Some things time can't heal
Some moments change a life
But One is greater still
If you're really out there
Please tell me why I'm here
Wishing I was dying
Truly knowing fear
Heart so full of questions
Soul so full of shame
Mind so full of memories
That I can't bear to face
If scars can last forever
If maybe time can't heal
If seconds rape a soul
How can You be real
How can You be real
Forgive me
Or I can't live
Hold me
I want to die
How
Could You use
Your Son's
Blood to buy
Forgive me
Or I can't live
Hold me
I want to die
How
Could You use
Your Son's
Blood to buy
Me
Some scars last forever
Some things time won't heal
Some moments change a life
But One is greater still
One is greater still
You
Have purified me
You
Have set me free
You
Have sanctified me
You
Cry for me
You
Have purified me
You
Have set

Clay
My friend, so short
I barely knew
All the dreams
God gave to you
Here and gone
Just like the wind
To fight a war
Consumed in sin
I'll wonder then
If you still live
To see the anguish
Terror gives
We lost so many
Lives that day
Are we throwing
Yours away?
My soul is in a mire
Of sorrow and despair
I can't control the tears that fall
Not knowing if you're there
Fighting with my shadow
As grief controls my day
The answers to my questions
Are about as clear as clay
A bloody dusk
To darkness falls
How can this be
A Savior's call
Is this service
Meant to be
Or are you fleeing
History
A void so deep
You'd jump to death
I cannot see
Life so bereft
I'm helpless but
To pray this song
Father God
This can't go on
Your soul is in a mire
Of sorrow and despair
I'd cry an ocean so you'd see
That someone really cares
Fading to a whisper
Are the comforts of that day
I pray you'll find the answers
'Cause I know they're clear as clay
Mud doesn't make a window
Clay doesn't build a mirror
But put in fire

Search Me
You search so deep
Inside of me
Beyond the lies and pain
And what You find
I can't define
Its presence is my shame
A shining mirror
That shows the truth
Of what I can become
And yet the image
Staring back
Is but a blackened sun
Send the will to live
Make me so much more
I'm floating in the pain
And I can't find the floor
What is up and what is down
When gravity is gone
I know what's wrong, I know what's right
But I've been dead so long
I know I'm blind
So lead me on
I'm sightless through these tears
Send Your love
To cleanse my eyes
And wash away my fears
I'm stepping out
I'm jumping off
Of all I've ever known
So catch me up
On eagle's wings
And bear me to Your throne
Send the strength to fly
I want to be Your dream
I'm floating in Your grace
You are my everything
With all I'm not and all You are
I still don't understand
Why You should die for such as I
But I cling to Your hand
So bless me Lord
In all I do
And when the heartache comes
I pray You give me strength to stand
Until Your wil

It's true, the world may be ending ... I actually drew something again today. It's been ... goodness, 3 or 4 years? Maybe longer? A lot has happened in that time - started college, got married, expecting our first baby, whew. What a ride. Expect more updates in the next 6 months to a year, because I am actually taking a drawing class next semester for my Fine Arts credits. /gasp!

I also actually enjoyed planning out pumpkin carving pictures today, so maybe I'll even do some more artsy stuff earlier than next January. >_>

not all pictures are flashy and shiny. Don't fear your talent, when you left we'd all had great hopes for you. You should get into school, your drawing would only grow! I'd love to see more of your work. I cant believe you moved to the Carolina's. I know you left but I thought it'd be in the complete opposite direction.Good luck on your journey Akane! Oh! speeking of which, do you still have the Akane/swan painting I gave you? Wow, that feels like so long ago. ^.^

Yes, I do, somewhere. ^^ A lot of my stuff is still in boxes in Montana, until I figure out where I'm headed on a more permanant basis, but I know it's tucked away somewhere. ^^ How's Colorado? And super late congrats, I knew you got married, or were planning on it, I just forgot. xD
