Nonetheless

December 19, 2010
Compassion does swiftly mend 
Eternally dull and aching soul
One is full of fiery sky
To endure and grow in raw mistake

I found your
Light in
Nothingness
And kept
My pride 
Nonetheless but
Prideful waste
Makes us less

Created voice in rain is gone 
Dark lies pay their dues in dark
Now while solemn sorrow wakes
A painful truth takes it's place

We came to be
More or less
An open door
Out of distress
If once there was
A reflection of
What's to be found
Inside

Pretentious thoughts will set us free
Closing minds have yet to try
Another tale of the wind and sea
A boys lost dreams found finally

If after life
The end of day
An languid peace
Comes to stay
The long endured
And soundly based
Another time
To be faced

Sooner is solace found
Than lost lovers safe and sound
The curtain pulled reveals sweet closure
While a night silently fades to nothing

I found your
Light in
Nothingness
And kept
My pride nonetheless
Nonetheless
Laid down to rest

I GET FIRST COMMENT MWAHAHA.

I love this :D

It's really... I can't really describe it in words, because it's more the feel of it that I like.

It's....

The ocean.

Velvet.

A lantern.

The forest at dawn.

That's what it feels like.
