I am an artist bound only for the poet's glory....But only achieve half of the success that my dreams aspire to find, And to what do the whispers tell me of this failure...To what end to they haunt my eternal dark dreams...

They fought,
The others, they fall.
They slaughter each other And I just watched it all.

I’m sick, so sick.
I’ tired of all this.
Children killing themselves,
because they lack the will live.

I just sat back and watched,
As the children they fought.
Their cries of pain haunt me,
The one who tormented still is taunting…

I can hear the whispers from the dark.
“Its your fault..”
They whisper from that street..The field of battle…
“Its your fault…”

“Forgive Me!” I cry!
“I couldn’t do anything” I lie!
Knees bending, eyes sobbing and my soul dead inside...

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. -Bruce Lee

This is so intriguing(i think i spelled that wrong). It reminds me a lot about whats going on with my life. I really do like it. Love the flow and the words. *thumbs up*
