Rurouni Kenshin Fanfic

Summary: It's modern day. The streets are rife with violence; corporations are corrupt; assassinations, commonplace. Himura Kenshin, known only as Battousai, is a shadow assassin for an organization so secret even he doesn't know who truly runs it. However, Battousai has an even bigger secret; one, that if it were ever discovered, would mean more than his death…it would end in his total annihilation. Battousai is not only the deadliest assassin to ever prowl the dark streets of night…he is also a vampire, one of the oldest still in existence…and a rarity among his kind.

He has a soul.

Tears of Eternity

By: Chiruken

Tears of Eternity

To weep silent tears
For sacrifices made
To hide latent fears
Behind a cold façade

Noble thoughts wither
Innocence wilts and dies
Tears of a killer
Hidden behind the lies

The grief is hidden
Within the sea of blood
Returns unbidden
A tide becomes a flood

And the blood rains down
Flowing rivers of red
And the blood rains down
Washing over the dead

Nightmares grim and stark
Humanity is stained
Guilt stabs through the dark
Eternal soul in pain

Feared, reviled…hated
Tomorrows faced alone
Hopes trampled…tainted
No one to welcome home

Frozen faith in dreams
No love to melt the ice
Cracks around the seams
Forever has its price

And the blood rains down
Flowing rivers of red
And the blood rains down
Washing over the dead

The need of a man…
The touch of a hand…
A yearning so deep…
A heart that will weep…
A passionate soul…
Given up to woe…
He's suffered enough…
Deserves to be loved…

And the blood rains down
Flowing rivers of red
And the blood rains down
Washing over the dead
