Disclaimer – Don't own it, never will
A/N: Finally was able to get to this request, courtesy of Allen the Musician.
Ya know, I actually prefer poem requests more so than one-shots, but hey, that's just me. XD
Oh my, yet another request inspired by music; "Tell Me" by Story of the Year.
Gee, I wonder where the title and the idea came from… :3
Dark realms that can't be defined
You are welcomed as one of your kind
Demons in every shadow that hide
Tell me, have you already died?
Trying to struggle against the shackles of fate
Yet you're afraid you're already too late
It takes courage to fight your inner hell
Tell me angel, have you already fell?
Attempting to break the locks on the gate
All just to escape the darkness you hate
Yet now that you've already succumb
Tell me, what are you running from?
Howl to the sky with the roar of the beast
Less your hollow soul be part of the feast
You fear that feeling of running away
Tell me, what more have you to say?
With the single tap of a piano key
Your soul will never truly be free
Feelings that block you cause a delay
Tell me, what has led you astray?
Dreams left abandoned and torn
No one will be left there to mourn
A heart so broken, so dead inside
Tell me, have you nowhere to hide?
Secrets lie hidden within your keen eyes
Sufferance that impresses even the wise
When your faith is dying and in need
Tell me, doesn't every human bleed?
You've lost this battle and many more to come
That heart of yours must already be numb
There is a warning that you must heed
Tell me, will you one day take the lead?
The darkness that consumes you is heavy and deep
Though they say what you sow is what you reap
When everything around you is crashing down
Tell me, does your mask ever save you, clown?
Lingering behind you is the fourteenth's soul
Even as you struggle to learn your own role
You fear that you'll fail and that you'll lose
Tell me, which side of the fight will you choose?
Well, here it is, Allen the Musician…I really hoped that you enjoyed it.
As usual, I must point out which of the stanzas I prefer the most, and I'll have you know it was the 4th to last, AKA the 7th stanza.
…If that makes sense. :D
Anyways, I have two more requests to go do as of right now, so I am busy!
(Okay, not really, but still… XD)
AND YES, I DO TAKE POEM AND ONE-SHOT REQUESTS NOW! PLEASE GO TO MY PROFILE FOR MORE INFORMATION!
