Hahaha I just realized that I put the same poem in twice. But now it is fixed, and this one is one of my favorites so now it is first! It's centered around the whole concept of " The Promised Land" and, well you'll see when you read it! Now a reviewer (to lazy to look up name, sorry:) I know it's Shadow something) said that I could add on their poetry, and I just thought that was a cool idea!
So any poets out there who want their poetry put on this fic, just email me at and I'll be happy to post them! As long as it doesn't suck... lol but I'm sure it won't
Well... Read on!
The Losing of Paradise
Strands of chestnut hair
Ripple in the wake of her grave
Emerald eyes, wide open
Is it Paradise lost or Paradise saved?
A frozen smile foreshadows frozen dreams
A string knotted around the neck
A promise...a reminder
To never, don't ever, forget
Someday we may find peace,
Where is the land that was promised to us?
Overflowing with flowers, brimming in hope
Has bliss been deemed too good for us?
Enshrouded in sin, and so many regrets
Doomed to experience all except,
Dead and gone, dead and gone
A candle smothered by fierce, infinite winds
Promises still linger on cold dead lips
A whisper dies on cold dead lips
"Alas, is this Paradise?"
Clean and soft, the pink hem of her dress
Strays across my vision and I almost forget
That I am alone, yes,once again
And... there is no Paradise
Drowning in lugubrious guilt
I wallow in her bottomless crypt
And my voice cries out, expressing
Longing and lilt
"Without you, there is no Paradise!"
Oh, how I want to be saved
To be loved
For once protected and never afraid
No one is alone
Engulf me in sweet, incessant light
Illuminating the shadows
That veil, my eyes
Bathe me in welcoming warmth
Burn my cold and sinful heart
Lead us, lead me
Lift me above my own suffering
Resurrect my soul
Forgive my flaws
Free me of reliving past woes
Crying, together we'll walk
And our laughter will chime
Like a bell
