Well, since I'm on gaia now, I figured I may as well blog here too. I usually only put things on my MSN space, but thats only viewable by my contacts. So, here's a poem I wrote. Leave a comment and tell me what you think! 3nodding
The Battle For My Soul
The fire burns strongly before me,
giving me the warmth to press on.
The fire has always been there with me
burning brightly when I needed it most.
A creeping shadow and chill wind
have encompassed my world.
Together they threaten to take over,
but the fire fights it back.
The chill wind and blazing fire
battle for control of me and my soul.
The wind blows through every crevasse of my being,
slowly but surely taking the warmth from me.
The fire rages in the center of my soul,
contained there by the wind.
The warmth slowly leaves my body,
dispelled by the cool winds.
I lay in the darkness not able to move.
The battle enters the one place I hoped it never would.
Before the wind can do anything,
the fire quickly retreats to my heart.
There, it grows stronger and brighter,
in attempt to hold the wind at bay.
The wind howls outside my heart,
planning and plotting, waiting for the right moment.
Wisps of wind snake through my heart,
attacking the flame relentlessly.
The fire starts dying down,
realizing it has no chance of winning.
It burns itself out, into smouldering ashes.
The creeping shadow quickly seizes my heart,
claiming it as its own.
I lay there in the darkness,
breathing out the cool winds that now flow through me.
The dying ashes lie in wait for the moment
when the creeping shadow and chill winds
will leave my soul, my heart, my being.
The wind rages inside of me,
Giving me the strength to move on.
