Claudia's Song

A lost soul trapped in a doll
Loved and admired by many in vain
Puppeteers come and take some pictures for inspiration

Kept alive by distant hope
Relying on the faint laughter that remains
Limited by the antique rules and restrictions

Soon enough the hair will grow
Revealing a young girl’s imagination
Beaded eyes adjust accordingly so
She’ll authorize each modification
Scissors will weep in her bleeding hand
Porcelain skin can’t stand this test
Once the ornament of pure innocence
Now a lost soul, possessed

A captured ghost with nowhere to go
To them it’s just a sick little game
Torment thyself with unnecessary anticipation

A mad man with a top hat holding the remote
Impossible to steal my freedom and run away
Too many strings to snip out of consideration

Soon enough the hair will grow
Revealing a young girl’s imagination
Beaded eyes adjust accordingly so
She’ll authorize each modification
Scissors will weep in her bleeding hand
Porcelain skin can’t stand this test
Once the ornament of pure innocence
Now a lost soul, possessed

A lost soul trapped in a doll
Loved and admired by many in vain
No mercy and no escape


If anyone else wants me to write a song for them, all I need is a line Very Happy (thanks for the awesome line, Claudia!!)

<3

btw, the line was "A lost soul trapped in a doll loved and admired by many in vain"

ohh okay Very Happy

I actually really want to make a book out of all the things I write. I think that would be pretty cool. I'm just not sure how I would do it.

Sometimes I wonder if it's possible to be one of those newspaper or magazine columnists but instead of writing articles, I could write poetry and lyrics. But I don't think you can do that.

Hmmm not many people are able to earn a living by writing. It takes some serious talent and powerful connections which I just do not have.

Still, a girl can dream.... I love you

So the past two weeks have seen a lot of drama and random emotions that keep switching and flipping, so there was no room left for the writing block!!!!

NB: Explanations are in italics.
Smile

Dear Jesus

I wrote this song because I'm beginning to feel like I've wasted so much time idolizing a man who supposedly claims that idols are wrong. Now that I think about it, I never fully believed that Jesus was the divine son of God. Of course I knew he was special, just not so special that I should be creating shrines dedicated to him. However, this does not mean that I don't believe he was a great man. I mean, the dude still knew his shit. And even if he is the son of God, I'm not gonna love him because of who his dad is. I just love him for what he has done for people.

I don’t love you for your parents or your name
I don’t love you for your pride or for your pain
I don’t love you for your winning streaks
I love you for what you’ve done to me

I don’t love your many statues and arts
I don’t love you for the shrine or the elaborate arch
I don’t love you for the books and theories
I love you for what you’ve done to me

Now don’t start thinking you’re the only one in my heart
If I’ve learnt anything from you, it’s to give everyone a fair chance

I don’t love you for your rise in power
I don’t love you the sword or shining armour
I don’t love you for every single thing you preach
I love you for what you’ve done to me

I don’t love you for the frankincense or the myrrh
I don’t love you for your well thought out words
I don’t even love you for sad Calvary
I just love you for what you’ve done to me

Dear Jesus, whether you are holy or not
I don’t care, either way you’ve still taught me a lot
Dear Jesus, even if you’re not Son of God
I don’t care, either way you’ve taught me a lot

Now don’t start thinking you’re the only one in my heart
If I’ve learnt anything from you, it’s to give everyone a fair chance
Please don’t expect me to believe in all that you say
Please don’t expect me to prosecute any Muslims or gays
Please don’t expect me to worship you in a crowd
I won’t perform for you or anyone else

Envy

Hmmm so I wrote this about my friend... I even gathered the courage to send it to her!!! Smile I'm actually quite proud about that. Umm... I'm not sure if I can go into detail about it lol pretty obvious in the lyrics anyway Razz

I tried and I tried to make you smile
Just to see the sparkle in your eyes
Just to know that you won’t be crying tonight
I tried and I tried to make you laugh
Just to see the girl I knew from the past
Just to know that you won’t be grieving tonight

But every attempt is doomed to failure
I start to believe that I’m just making you weaker
But then you see her

And your heart jumps over mountains
The scars heal as if nothing happened
It doesn’t matter what I say or do
I’ll never have that effect on you
Oh how I wish I was able to make you happy
But she’s the only one
So I’ll forever be Envy

I tried and I tried to make you dance
Just to see the joy radiate through your hands
Just to know that you won’t be hurting tonight

But every attempt is doomed to failure
I start to believe that your life could be in danger
But that’s when you see her return

And your heart jumps over mountains
The scars heal as if nothing happened
It doesn’t matter what I say or do
I’ll never have that effect on you
Oh how I wish I was able to make you happy
But she’s the only one
So I’ll forever be Envy

I promise that one day in a future life
I will be there to hold you
I promise that one day in a future life
I will be there waiting for you
Even though

Every attempt is doomed to failure
I start to believe I could only make you weaker
But then again, there’ll always be her
Oh how I wish I could make you happy
She’s the only one
I’ll forever be
Envy

Heathen

This song was actually inspired by Sinead O'Connor's song "All Babies". I encourage you all to listen to it. The lyrics are just so beautiful!! A lot of her songs inspire me a lot and/or make me cry my eyes out. I love her strong character and admire her strength and absolute belief.

A simple child
Just like the one you worship
Crying out
Just like you do in your service
But she will bleed at your hand
At the simple age of ten
Just because she asked you a simple question

A little girl
Following just as you do
Watching still
Waiting for the same salute
But she will bleed at your hand
At the little age of seven
Just because she asked you a little question

Send away the heathen who dares to ask
“Are you sure that he is God?”
Send away the Pagans and Wiccans
Who you claim to be mistaken
Be the bigger man and forgive after they’re gone

A sinful child
Just like the one you hold now
Staring up
And praying, “Why the countdown?”
For he will someday bear his own cross
You’ll say it is only Satan’s loss
But both his mothers will never recover from the shock

Send away the heathen who dares to ask
“Are you sure that he is God?”
Send away the Pagans and Wiccans
Who you claim to be mistaken
Be the bigger man and forgive after they’re gone

At night you can hear them still
Whispering across the hills
“They said we would be forever lost
Because we didn’t believe in their God
They said that we were wrong and that they were right
Which made them think they could take away our lives”

I thought persecution
Went against your religion
I thought unique perceptions
Were beautiful expressions

Please don’t send away the heathen who dares to ask
“Are you sure? Are you sure? Are you sure that’s God?”
Don’t send away all the Pagans and all the Wiccans
Because they’re so unbelievably mistaken
Or be the bigger man and forgive after they’re gone
Be the bigger person, Christian, whatever you think you are

Mother

Just so you know, "tapu" means "sacred" in Te Reo Maori Razz I kind of believe that there is a motherly energy within the Earth that has existed since the Big Bang and that that energy supplies us with all our inspiration and spirituality, like a mother. She's kind of like how I imagine Mother Earth would be like.

I can feel you now
Beneath this tapu ground
Beneath the sacred dirt
Lies all human birth

I drink my soul from within your roots
And I eat my soul from forbidden fruits

Father Sky gave birth to all in a moment of explosion
And the stars spread, ready to inspire the night
And Mother Earth, my goddess of thought, planted herself in devotion
Nurturing us all with love and light

I can feel you now
Breathing through me
Breathing life into my seed
Producing cherished eternity

I drink my soul from within your roots
And I eat my soul from forbidden fruits

Father Sky gave birth to all in a moment of explosion
And the stars spread, ready to inspire the night
And Mother Earth, my goddess of thought, planted herself in devotion
Nurturing us all with love and light

I can feel you now
Beneath this tapu ground
Beneath the sacred dirt
Lies all human hurt

Ocean-wide View

I'm not really sure what I was thinking when I wrote this song. It was the first I wrote coming out of the writing block. It doesn't even make much sense to myself soooo I don't know if it makes sense to anyone. Haha if it makes sense to you, please tell me what I just wrote xD

Bond tainted by a hole
Filled with charred feathered wings
Drenched in his best alcohol
Hid from sun, hid from tidings
Clothed in nameless armour
Studded with pellet fire
Seeking out her familiar
Sinking teeth, my evil desires

Chains, these chains
They breathe into me
Cling to my body
Love my every pore
Chains, these chains
They sing through me
Link up with my heartbeat
Never leave me, my flaws
Ocean-wide view
Of heaven, earth adoring you
But I don’t think it’s really you

Pages and pages of enemy divide
Seething babies wish to applaud
Like a scarlet memory of holy divine
Plant a breath to thy own accord
Maps change as mountains run away
Away from melting snow globes
That trap pretty pictures in a total cliché
Smashed upon his wildest dreams with tiny stones

Chains, these chains
They breathe into me
Cling to my body
Love my every pore
Chains, these chains
They sing through me
Link up with my heartbeat
Never leave me, my flaws
Ocean-wide view
Of heaven, earth searching for you
How will they know if it’s really you?

Set me free, set me free, say unto me
Blessed be, blessed be the ones in yellow
In the meantime I shadow the lifeless hallways
Debating with the thoughts I once kept in chains

Chains, these chains
They breathe into me
Cling to my body
Love me to my very core
Chains, these chains
They scream throughout me
Link up my heartbeat
Oh my flaws
Ocean-wide view
It must scare you
To hear how much you will lose

Retirement

This is another corny one lol Just another moment of feeling a bit... lost? I guess it's also a bit of a stab at the people who rely on a "higher power" to do the dirty work for them.

Millions of people are still waiting
Wasting their lives away
Waiting for something magical to show
It will drive them all insane

Love has grown weak
No one cares anymore

Cupid, where have you gone?
We see no trace of your arrow
Empty promises and broken hearts
Are all that we know
Cupid, where have you gone?
Where is your current location?
Everyone’s forgotten your gift
Please, Cupid, come out of retirement

Musicians now only sing of pain and hurt
Selling a thousand copies per soul
Authors now only write of a lover’s curse
Books fly off the shelves row by row

Love has grown weak
No one cares anymore

Cupid, where have you gone?
We see no trace of your arrow
Empty promises and broken hearts
Are all that we know
Cupid, where have you gone?
Where is your current location?
Everyone here has forgotten your gift
Please, Cupid, come out of retirement

Everyone believes that you’re to blame
They will always deny that love should be a human trait
Everyone believes that you have died
So they should bother trying to keep love alive

No one cares anymore
No one cares anymore
No one cares anymore
No one cares anymore

Cupid, where have you gone?
Where is your current location?
Everyone here has forgotten love
Everyone here has forgotten God

Stargazer

I couldn't get to sleep so I looked outside to look at the stars like I usually do but I couldn't see them. Being the drama queen I am, I started telling myself that the world is so against me that not even the stars will let me see how beautiful they can be. So I decided to write a song based on stars... again... if anything, I just reminded myself how little I know about space lol Razz

Syncopated yet constricted to the planets that underlie
And only come out to eat up the stars before they can align
In my eyes, you are so much more beautiful than you realise
You know that you are wanted
And you enjoy the cosmic attention
But do these stargazers know the colours of your voice?

The burning lights are energised
By some things I know nothing about
But they’re so pretty to watch at night
After the sun goes down

My batteries are solar powered but we live in a place
Where there is no sun or moon to reflect so I feel a little betrayed
They told me I’d live long enough to see the light of the next day
I know that I’m not wanted
And I have no cosmic reaction
Cos I’m just a stargazer that knows the colours of your voice

The burning lights are energised
By some things I know nothing about
But they’re so pretty to watch at night
After the sun goes down

Little matchbox, you are my last hope
Please continue the cycle and illuminate your home
Cos I’m a stargazer that knows the colours of your soul

I love all of these, particularly Stargazer, Ocean-wide View and Retirement. I myself can't decipher Ocean-wide View, but I love the mystery of it. I want to read it over and over again just to see what I can find between the lines. It makes me think of a fallen angel.

One of my recent works for uni is just a 400 word opening to a fictional story and the main character is a fallen angel. I think I'll have to extend it and make it a short story so I can post it on ToL. It has odd connections to Ocean-wide View, particularly the chains.

I'm so glad you're back and past your writer's block Very Happy

Candle

Macbeth, Macbeth....

Impulsive shadows are licking at my thoughts
They will never forgive my transgressions
Though I pray and bleed and scream and grieve
They still torment me relentlessly

Let’s just make this plain and simple
Life is but the brief flame of an alter candle
Some are strong enough to swallow the wind
While others are extinguished in vain
Why don’t you persuade me to look the other way?

Sundays bring me to the old, dusty pew
And I’ll kneel when the Rev tells me to do so
But I shan’t close my eyes in case my mask deceives
I wouldn’t want to give anyone false hopes before a fall

Let’s just make this plain and simple
Life is but the brief flame of an alter candle
Some are strong enough to swallow the wind
While others are extinguished in vain
Why don’t you persuade me to look the other way?

Communicate with me more than you usually would
Hope that it adds cushioning to the splintered wood
But tonight, after the bolt is returned home, I’ll be all alone again
And who knows what will happen then

Let’s just make this plain and simple
Life is but the brief flame of an alter candle
Out, out, brief candle
Out, out, brief candle

^ Ahh, Macbeth ^^ I learned to love that play at some point while I was studying it for A Level English Literature. That's a beautiful quote, and you've created a beautiful song from it Smile

Song: Conquered

Stranger, meet me
In that back alley
Send the earrings far away
Trial me, accept me
Bring me into light
Take me to your home and heart and mind

In the night
In the starshine
In the moon’s light
I cry
Be me blessed
Be me conquered
Be me Celtic roots
Held to ground

Sister, scold me
Tell me I am weak
Tell me I am wrong always
Lift me gently
Set me on brightest fire
Take me to the truth and warmth and inspired

In the night
In the starshine
In the moon’s light
I cry
Be me blessed
Be me conquered
Be me Celtic roots
Held to ground

Who am I to forget who I am?
Sinner in all, far from hand
Be me blessed
Be me conquered
Be me withered
Be me dead

Poem: The Humble Servant

The humble servant will someday come
Should he pass decrees or judgment along the way,
His title of humility shall be stripped and his reward destroyed
For no other may accept such divinity
Only the humble will return home clean from the wrath
Of misfortunate distractions that steal away the weaker, though not the weakest
The weakest will not be disregarded or abused, but treasured
Humanity feeds on weaknesses to expose
Perfection shoots threatening messages at our soldiers every day,
Occasionally taking down the bravest of all
Their closest allies dive down, but not for shelter
They throw themselves at the ground so that the blood of the taken
May not soak into the earth before one is able to
Sneak in a little taste of power
Power over those of equal line
Traitors come and go but none are recognised
For their disguises blind us and guide them into a new world
Where honesty is but a myth of cowardice
Where man misunderstands all and accepts inferiority as true
Misused until the end of their lives
By those unfathomable sequences
Patterned across the skies, far and wide
Hurry now, for the soldiers are thinning out
Men, run forth, and pray that the bullets hit you hard
For the next world in which you will meet the
One who never brings the law to dust!
And dust to song and song to the morrow
Fringes of society elope in secret hallways
With his eyes following their fingernail marks
Oh yes, the humble servant will someday come
Prepare yourselves, men, for he is our daughters and sons

Song: Treason

They’ve come to the conclusion
I’m a traitor to the nation
Just because I chose to wear blue
While the rest of the crowds
Were wearing maroon
But I refused

The policemen brought me to the
Council of law and order
And reminded me of why I was here
In front of many maroon coloured
Outfits worn by many maroon strangers
I missed my own blue dress

They asked me “why the protest?
You’ve caused a lot of distress
Don’t you know that you’re wrong?
With your blue attire on
You’re an insult to everyone
In the state of imagery
We do not like what we see”

I told them all quite plainly
That they will never make me
Wear the dull national colour
For it cannot be seen by my brother
When he is searching for me in town
Amongst all of the others

Plus, why should I wear that maroon
When my mother hates it too?
For she can’t tell whether dye or dirt
Is settling deep down in my shirts
It all looks the same to her

I do not wish to blend with the rest
For this baby blue does suit me best
I won’t tell you what to wear
Just please return the favour
For no one needs dictated colour
It depends on your thoughts on the day

This belief that I was holding
Bought me a millionth scolding
Bought me some brand new cuffs
And a following of hungry ducks
And a misunderstood cellmate
Wearing her own purple on the day

They’ve come to the conclusion
I’m a traitor to the nation
The enemy still wears blue
They thought I was one of them too
They broke me out and gave me food
But now I’d much rather wear that bloody maroon

I really like Treason as well. May I ask what the inspiration behind it was?

Well I was listening to Regina Spektor at the time and her music always tends to put a random image in my head. While listening to "Chemo Limo", I had the image of a little girl wearing a victorian style blue dress but she was surrounded by lots of children wearing very modern maroon clothing, shouting at her and pulling at her dress. Soooo... that was the "inspiration" Smile

I love them, Treason is my favourite too. I get vivid images when I listen to music too sometimes and I often use them, or parts of them, as inspiration for poetry or stories. Music is a wonderful thing ^^

Ever Reign

Where the faeries are
There’s a cave there
Far away
Where the faeries are
There’s a queen
Made of rain

And oh the clouds they applaud you from above
And oh the crowds they adore you from below

Crown her now and peace will ever rule
Crown her now and peace will ever reign

Where the pixies are
There’s a home
In the ground
Where the pixies are
There’s a castle for
The homeless

And oh the clouds they applaud you from above
And oh the crowds they adore you from below

Crown her now and peace will ever rule
Crown her now and peace will ever reign
Ever reign, ever reign

Where the humans are
There are bricks and stones
All around
Where the humans are
There a glass house
Protecting grief

Crown her now and peace will ever rule
Crown her now and peace will reign
Ever reign, ever reign
Ever reign, ever reign

White=Pure

(I found this half-written on my computer and felt the need to finish it ^^)

See the darkness makes me choke
And I forget the last thing you spoke
My lungs cremated by holy smokes
And dire breath becomes slow

Pictures will never scare my love
Warnings are just over-reactions
But I guess white jackets are clean
And their shine over-shadow me

See the light enters in from the west
But I prefer to avoid that obtuse mess
Especially on a Sunday morning my pupils protest
I don’t want to risk my soul

Pictures will never scare my love
Warnings are just over-reactions
But I guess white collars are clean
And their shine over-shadow me

See the colour plunges in too soft
It makes me wonder why you lost what I’ve got
Because in the end, everyone’s shot
With so many thoughts still to write

Pictures will never scare my love
Warnings are just over-reactions
But I guess white jackets are clean
And their shine over-shadow me


Sing Your Anthems

Wrote this a couple of weeks ago to follow the military theme Smile

Soldier, hold yer arms
Drop them, you’ll drop dead
Think of how the photograph
In your little pocket
Will weep in the mud
Underneath your blood

Simple rains won’t wash away this misery

Stand tall with your flag
March on and don’t look back
Sing your anthems of idolisation
Stand tall with your flag
The girls will wait for their dad
Singing their anthems of civilisation

Soldier, smouldering lies
They terrify you to the front lines
Make your leader proud
He don’t even know your name
He won’t remember your sacrifice
Just a number on his computer

Simple rains won’t wash away this misery

Stand tall with your flag
March on and don’t look back
Sing your anthems of idolisation
Stand tall with your flag
The girls will wait for their dad
Singing their anthems of anticipation

Save your breath
It may be useful in the time of your death
Keep it in your pocket with that photograph
And don’t look back
Don’t look back

Stand tall with your flag
March on and don’t look back
Sing your anthems of idolisation
Stand tall with your flag
The girls will wait for their dad
Singing their anthems of
Singing their anthems of
Soldiers

those were beautiful, especially the last one. the same thing happened to my mother, and here I am! because she was strong and did it all by herself, I am here today. That was amazing, and expresses everything all at once---you're a talented writer.

Sooo I figured out how to scare the jellybeans out of my friends. Today I had a friend over and when I left the room, she had a sneak peak at a poem I was working on. When I got back, she asked me why it sounded so serial-killer-ish. I told her that it was how I'd plan to kill my parents if I ever felt the need. You should've seen her face... haha I'm so evil xD. Sooo this is the poem:

Father said the sea was in his blood
So I thought that I’d return his blood to the sea
All it took was a curious word and
Instructions on how to feed fish to fish
With a map of where fossils like to swim
Now he is at home in the salty waters

Mother said home is where the heart is
So I thought that I’d return her heart to the garden
Where there lies the bones of her firstborn child
The only home that she could ever afford
I used her sewing kit to remove her internal home
Now it is reunited with its other half of soul

Neither cried at the sight of their dreams
Only gazed at me pleadingly
It almost took my compassion to cinders
Almost

Even if all beauty was to die
As Nick Cave had so predicted
We would not be void of any smiles
Our definitions would only evolve accordingly
For beauty cannot exist without
The rot to contrast and compare
Misused interpretations have led us to plastic
That melts and covets the air

Awaiting the loosened ribbons
Hidden in my little corner
And ladders tear up my legs
With a solemn visitor
Compliments my curls
Compliments my curves
Compliments my skirts
And reaches to bring them closer

It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay
The pills will take away the memory
I won’t remember what you’ve done to me
Although I can’t say the same for these guilty sheets
It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay
Everyone makes mistakes

I shouldn’t bother with the mirror
Vanity is innocent this time
For my most solemn visitor
Now only watches below my waistline
He compliments my scent
He compliments my bed
He compliments my sweat
And pulls me back into line

It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay
The pills will take away the memory
I won’t remember what you’ve done to me
Although I can’t say the same for these guilty sheets
It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay
Everyone makes mistakes

I know I’m not the only one
Who curses his name in prayer
I know I’m not the guilty one
Yet, before God, I still quake in fear
Hands wet from the task I’ve done
Weapon hidden beneath my skirt
They’ll say I am a sinful one
They'll say I am a sinful one

But it’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay
The pills will take away the memory
I won’t remember what I’ve done to his throat
And no one else will ever know
It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay
Everyone makes mistakes

I love your latest poem! You always write such beautiful, dark songs. I want to get back into writing poetry, I have done any in a while. My ambition at the moment is to write a love poem that is in no way cliched, and that doesn't include the word "love" at any point. I've set myself a real challenge there, but I believe I can do it.

I think I find it so daunting because my medium in most of my writing is dark. But hey, I'm sure I could write a dark poem about love.

^ I know what you mean, there. I try so hard to avoid cliches whenever writing, but then, it's almost cliche avoiding that, ya know? It's like when a friend asked if I'd get married in a church and I said no because that was too cliche but then she said "Don't you think that way of thinking is a cliche in itself?"

And, sometimes, it's good to embrace cliches because they're actually true. Especially when it comes to Love. It's the most corny, sickeningly cliche thing in the world, but it's REAL. And I usually feel like I'm trying too hard when I try to avoid using lines that are used in every song out there. Originality sometimes just takes away from your humility, you know??

I think it's good to keep a balance between the two. Good luck with that challenge, though! I can't wait to see what you come up with, sis I love you
