You are not Alone.




Words that describe one which has no other

In a world of six billion, so many describe themselves as thus

For even in a crowd, the feeling of being alone

Permeates the fibers of our hearts

And every beat slowly takes us into sorrow

For none understand this pain

This sadness

This loneliness

That drains away the life from our limbs

And makes our hearts frigid and dark.

But, with six billion others that could be feeling the same way, are we really?

Are those that scream out into the void of their frozen hearts truly not heard?

Truly, this I say to you

That no cry may go unheard,

No tear fall in vain

I make this vow

You are not alone.

Reach out your hands beyond that barren, windswept plain of your heart

And you will find


Reaching back to grasp yours

And pull you back into the warm of the sun

Though your darkness, reach out, reach out

For there is already a hand waiting to grasp yours.

Reach out

Find that light once again

And become that hand that reaches into the darkness of other’s hearts

So you me be the the proof that

You are not alone.



The Shattering of Lies

Ephemeral wings

Soaring above all

Seeing the world for what it truly is

Beyond the doors of perception

Beyond Good and Evil

Beyond Love and Hate

Beyond Hope and Despair

It exists

Silently affirming

Silently breaking

All that we hold dear

Forcing open the eyes that gaze upon it

Eyes that can no longer look upon lies

Now look with sorrow on the world they knew

A world covered with deceit

Of those who live with eyes shut

Ears deaf

Mind closed

To the truth that surrounds them

For their lies hold their pain from their fragile hearts

So they will not shatter into a thousand shards

That tear at the hearts of those around them

Under the light of such truth, all lies are wiped clean

So then how can human hearts endure?

What can heal the pain it brings?

For we all shall are already the broken shards of the mirror

Letting off a million shades of light

When that day comes, all we will have is that web of tiny threads

That connect each heart to another

And that shall become the frame from which the new world will be born

For when that day comes, truly, that may be all we have

So then hold each heart closely, tenderly

For any among them may be the one

That saves you from your darkness.




When you have no one left to turn to, when the darkness comes to claim you and

all you have is yourself…what will you do?  Would you cower in the face of it,

cursed only to tremble and weep before being consumed?  Would you avoid by

becoming the darkness itself, consuming those that refuse to submit to it? Or,

even knowing the risks, would you fight against it?  To you, the choice my sound

clear, but to face that darkness is to face to the deepest fears, sins, and

desires of our very souls.  Do you have the power to face something that

powerful?  As this life is your life, this choice is yours, but it is not one to

be taken lightly.  Once you have stepped down a path, you will find it

infinitely harder to step back.  That choice may make you, or it may break you. 

The only thing that will save you is your own determination.  So I ask you, what

is your choice?
