95 (who?)

Aura: The Radiance

I wore this pain like a crown / I was so broken
I kept on falling down / I felt my soul shattering

I couldn't hear anything / listening to my own twisted thoughts
I was blinded from everything / witnessing my own tragic downfall

I stopped dreaming of better days / I ceased believing long ago
My countless nightmares wouldn't fade / I was left in this dark world alone

I guess this is how I really pictured my own end
I just want it to finally be over with, I won't resent death

To the end of this long, and lonely road
Dangling on my unfinished rope

Lift me up, lift me up, lift me up, and don't let me go!
Hold me high, hold me high, hold me high, and give me hope!
Revive the light
Inside the dark
Given a second life
Resurrecting my heart

Cascade of colors
Fade away the gray
Open up a new world
Where shame has no place

Standing up to society's face's
Takes every ounce of courage
Never damaged or discriminated against
Because we're all going through changes

I live life like it's mine now / I am not forsaken
I am no longer bound / I feel this sense of freedom

I finally heard an inner acceptance / acknowledged my human flaws
Bestowed a long awaited forgiveness / for another day to freely walk

Envelope in empowerment / the painful past is my protector
Finally feeling found in my reflections / becoming my own savior

I consider this a new beginning
One with very little suffering

A new light has been revealed
To help me fully heal

Live it up, live it up, live it up, and don't have any regrets!
Find the light, find the light, find the light, and indulge in the radiance!
Place your light in my life, this is your effect
Place your hope in my hands, so I won't be broken
Put and end to my suffering
Let me experience the radiance

Just out of curiosity, have you ever considered writing lyrics for a band (any kind of band)...Your poems are amazing and at first I kept looking up lines of them on Google to find the song they came from, only to realize that you made them up yourself...Amazing job, as always, I love all of your work and hope to maybe hear some of these poems in a song someday :D :iconfbloveplz:

Sorry for the late response.

Well, I'm not really sure if I'd find out how to submit lyrics....or....try and find a singer who would be interested in considering my work. But, I do think it's a really interesting idea. I would also love to hear my work vocally.

Oh and yeah, I have been experimenting with adding lyrics into my different styles. I'm just trying to fuse stuff together, add some spice to the mix in my poetry, that's why I hope its....working :P

I love free verse, because I can't stand limitations or rules with the other categories. People, readers are always like "You did it wrong, you wrote it wrong, you missed a syllable" and on and on. So, with free verse, I just love the....unlimited creativity.

I'm so glad you expressed your interest in my work. It means a lot when I read people's comments like these. <3 New work is coming soon!

Yea, I can't stand having a certain form I need to write in, it's too restricting and really cuts down what I can come up with using my imagination...I totally understand! :D
Yay! I'm glad, I'll always love reading your work c: Good luck!

This was wonderful to read through, like a beautiful song played on a lazy summer afternoon. Very lyrical and flowing, like lyrics to a song. I might have to use this as a muse to start writing piano music again...but we'll see. ^^

You write piano music? That's awesome! I love listening to piano music while writing for this account. This is one of the most listened-to songs when I write this genre.

Have you ever heard of Kyle Landry? He's basically the only pianist I listen to. You should check out his work if you haven't already. I love almost every piece he releases.

I do! I agree, listening to piano music (and for me, sometimes jazz instrumentals as well) while writing poetry or stories is an awesome way to brainstorm and get new ideas :)

I haven't heard of him but thanks for the suggestion! I'll head over to the amazon downloads section and see what I can find :D
