As soon as my eyes open, the world spins into bright color

Flashing into motion that pulls me along

As if I have been caught unintentionally in this frantic riptide

Crowds surround me on all sides in a crushing push of people going

Moving and swirling in their own separate...

Here I sit upon my tower

My health 100, my shield full power

I've braved through 90 other deaths

'Til 10 remain, to face the test

I see two morons by the Lake

They see each other, but hesitate

Two victims of a sniper's slaughter

Another base...

The breath of Autumn,

Sweeps across the metal.

Dry blades,

Brittle and crackling,

Are cast across and up.

back at you with nothing but butterflies mapping out

the way I envisioned the night ending in my mind

with your red dress and our red flowers

beaming in the lights of music

danced away with unquenchable tensions

that I thought were coming...

Although but a tree, a little something more to me.
Of many merry memories, needless to say,
the best from my childhood took place in the evening.
Not a single night would ever go by,
that without fright I'd climb up my cottonwood tree.
I'd sit up there for hours, alon...

A rainbow spreads its colors

Across the face of a bright blue sky

Unique and vibrant arcs of light

Shimmering against the floating water

But then the rain or the clouds take it away

Because it isn’t dark like they are

It’s too different to be accepted

But then comes another d...
