Prologue- Crashing

Something has been taken

From deep inside of me

A secret I've kept locked away

No one can ever see

Wounds so deeps they never show

They never go away

Like moving pictures in my head

For years and years they played

If I could change, I would

Take back the pain I would

Retrace every wrong move that I made I would

If I could stand up and take the blame, I would

I would take all my shame to the grave

Sometimes I remember

The darkness of my past

Bringing back these memories

I wish I didn't have

Sometimes I think of letting go

And never looking back

And never moving forward so

There would never be a past

Just washing it aside

All of the helplessness inside

Pretending I don't feel misplaced

Is so much simpler than change

It's easier to run

Replacing this pain with something numb

It's so much easier to go

Than face all this pain here all alone

The end is coming. The end of all good things. Justice, love, peace. And none of you can see it.

I saw it three years ago, when a demon claimed a child's life. When a betrayal murdered a soul. I saw the beginning of the fall of the Jedi.

I tried to warn you, tried to make you see, but you chose not to listen, chose to blindly follow a path leading towards your own destruction. That terrible day is close, so close that I can hear the screams echo, see the tears flow, feel the blood drip. The echoing, the flowing, and the dripping have imprinted themselves in my mind.

I will fight these images, and fight the evil that will metamorphose them into reality. I will kill the demon, and I will destroy the traitor!
