raven3113: Endless sky and horizons

Endless expanses and open spaces
Where roads lead to no where and no where leads to something
What possibilties lie out there for today
Right where the sun touches the horizon and the sky has no end
All we need do is take a step in a direction
See life's little surprises
Take a journey and see where it leads
What new dreams await us along the way

Zhyanthan: 'Genetic Heart'
By: currentlyinuse

Steam ensues
blown from within
metallic clangs
tings dings and beats
part heart part machine
genetically engineered
lessens the pain
lessens the burden
At peace.

Zhyanthan: 'Genetic Heart'
By: Loaded Gun

I'll be there in a second
Just a min, I'm busy
Nothing, I'll get to it
Are you ever HERE
Yeah, well I used to be
Don't like it?
What you see...
Well too bad
I am yours
This is your fault
I am your genetic heart
You molded me
I am your image

Zhyanthan: 'Say Calgery'
By: Loaded Gun

Destinations unknown
All signs say turn back
No matter where I look
I'm on the wrong track
Turn around or move on
leaving my life behind
Or, finding it this time
Find a hot date for tonight
Spinning in circles with hope
Blurry old memories
Oh, which way to go
I say... Calgary

Zhyanthan: 'Arms of the Cheshire'
By: currentlyinuse

A smile across a sinister face
Locked within that wicked embrace
The arms enfold and caress
The nails pierce as they press
Not to harm just to thrill
At one time known to kill
The Cheshire sees you as a prize
Hidden now from others eyes
Warmth and safety in embrace
A smile across a Cheshire's face

Zhyanthan: 'Reason Turned Rancid'
By: CocoRosieKitten

In a dream I was a werewolf
My soul was filled with crystal light
Lavender ribbons of rain sang
Ridding my heart of mortal fright
Broken sundown fatherless showdown
Gun hip swollen lip
Bottle sip yeah I suck dick
Loose grip gravity falls sky blinding crumbling walls
River sweeps away my memories of a child's things a young mothers love
Before the yearning song of flesh on flesh
Young hearts burst
Open wounds bleed fresh
A young brother skinny and tall
My older walls oceanward and somber
Sumber sleeping flowers in the water
But I'm just his daughter
Walking down to an icy grave
Leading to my schizophrenic father
Weeping willow won't you wallow louder
Searching for my fathers power

Zhyanthan: 'Metallic Falcons'
By: Amad3us

For a reveled grace, we didn't see
our dead; rarely coming home to
die in piece, but simply stay away
out there. In the cloud war
the war in the sky. Seldom

the phantoms come back to
speak their tales of gliding be-
tween the mists in the wind.
Shades fading in the mind,

have no graves, but epitaphs in
the gusts of smoke after
being shot from high
in the air, None but find ashes of
the few who fly. This

War has no name, as if
there was no death to be
found, only charred remains of those
who flew above the rest in
Metallic Falcons.

OUT_OF_ORDER: "Our Time is Fading" By RadioActive1 2009

Radioactive1: Our Time is Fading
Radioactive1: As summer passes to fall
Radioactive1: Death is in the air
Radioactive1: The twilight of our time together
Radioactive1: And as the autumn leaves dance around us
Radioactive1: lifeless
Radioactive1: I can sense the our death approaching
Radioactive1: Our Time grows short
Radioactive1: As the Autumn sky is replaced by chill winter's air
Radioactive1: Skeletal trees reaching for the heavens
Radioactive1: Our lives touched by long, dark nights
Radioactive1: Once our lives intertwined
Radioactive1: Once our lives touched each other
Radioactive1: But that time has passed
Radioactive1: And now our time together has faded
Radioactive1: And together, we're lost and alone

X: "Thunderstorms" by theeviljc

My heart beats through my chest,
feels exposed against the cold that threatens my window.
in my sanctuary i hide,
from the approaching storm.
inside i know my blanket will protect me,
but the nagging feeling of impending doom refuses to leave,
the lighting strikes and cracks,
like the wipe of a hidden reaper.
peace will only be restored with the sunshine again,
saving me from the thunderstorms.

X: "Oblivious By Nature" by Nicodemus76

The reign of man has risen like the tides.
To cleave unto it's breast all that it sees.
Our mother earth in shackles gives a sigh.
Determined of her yoke to soon be free.
We squander every rescource that we find.
We take, unmindful of the risk or cost.
And she has given everything in kind.
Determined to replace what has been lost.
The reign of man must like the tides recede.
We cannot long contain the sea and soil.
Our end will come, and swiftly will it be.
Our debt repaid for all our mother's toil.
For all our wealth, our power, and our stature.
Will be made oblivious by nature.

X: "Battle Songs" by currentlyinuse

ratta tatta tatta tum

it once rang out acroos the land
beconing come fight hand to hand
now as the drummer falls
no more drumming battle calls.

X: "Pick Your Poison" by Loaded Gun

Take this day and the fading sun
Ring out my heart, and run
Hang it up to dry, would you please
Since you soiled it with ease
My poison I chose, it was you
I'll die by my choice to per-sue
As the wrinkles fade from my heart
No longer in form, just a part
Hung up and dried out on the line
Blown away in the wind with time
Soiled with the earths own decay
Eventually, I'll decompose and rot away

X: "Failed Persona" by X

I'd like to be me
But I can't
I'd like to tell you how wonderful you are
But I shan't
I'd caress your cheek and speak words of pure sugar
But you'd suspect my motives
In this white room
I can be anyone or anything I choose
And none of them would work
Except
When I'm a prick
Then I'm believable
Acceptable
Normal
It works both ways

I ask you not to feed a stray
It's not nice to be nice
To me
I might get the wrong idea
I might suspect you give a f&%#
I might think you're real
We can't have that
I can f%y^ you a hundred times
But I dare not love you
We can converse a hundred times
But I dare not consider you a friend
This persona has failed
Just like the inert flesh behind it
When it's legal to be me
Let me know
And I'll finally climb out of the womb
And be seen

X: "Afterlife" by The_Southern_Gemmy

As The Days Come To An End
Full Of Joy It Crashed
Tunneling Throught This Portal
Ever So Long
Reaching For The Light
Life Is Done
Interesting Landscapes I See Before Me
For Mine Eyes Has Not Seen
Ever Lasting Life Has Came And Gave Me Vicorty

X: "Withering Thoughts" by X

Here you stand after eighty years
Swimming in a self-made pool of tears
What will you think as you draw your last breath?
Will all this shit matter at your instant of death?
For decades, you were cruel and crass
You told the world to kiss your ass
And now that your day is nearly done
The world has finally left you alone
But you did it your way, your tapestry
Threaded the hate into a tragedy
Spin your paranoia, work your lies
I can't wait until the day you die

X: "Art Beware" by Kindsoul

A splash here
A brush stroke there
the canvas strewn on the floor
cool moist paint
on their hands
in her hair
on his chin
to draw
to paint
was their goal
art's beauty
they intended
to unfold
but as she helped him
guide his brush
suddenly he turned his head
from that point on
it was a blur
greens and blues
pinks and reds
on their skin
and on the ground
when all was done
the canvas they saw
filled w/ differnt hues
they hung it up
for all to see
so please remember to beware
dont ask the artist
which method they chose
just enjoy the art
thats the end of this prose
