Not Superman
I did my best
But I can't be your superman anymore
I fought until I was out of breath
Now with slit wrists I try to face death
I can't be your superman anymore
It's not for lack of want
Or lack of power
But lack of heart, and hope for tomorrow
Because today Lois dies and tomorrow it's our son
It's not as easy as it looks being me
Punching asteroids across the sky
Or saving the lives of everyone you see
Spending afternoons catching the bad guy
That's no longer me
I can't be your superman anymore

Forget My Name
The storm outside had been brewing for days, and he had stayed just ahead of it. He had made it to Greensville soon enough to get everything situated before the storm. His horse was in the stable, and he had made it into the bar just as the clouds began to block the waning sun, throwing a darkness over the streets.
His hat was black, though lighter than it had once been from the years of sun beating on it, and the weeks of dust that had settled on it from his most recent trip. His dark overcoat gave him a menacing aura, but that was fine with him. It tended to keep the fleas at bay.
He sipped from his glass, wincing as the liquid set his throat on fire, and sent a spike of pain through his head.
These damn headaches wouldn't leave him alone. They'd been coming and going since he was a kid, but now they just wouldn't quit. They grabbed just behind his eyes and reached around to the back, and just squeezed.
He took another sip, soon he'd sleep, and th

Cold. Black. Dark. Void.
There's nothing like it, nothing like the end. The end is something that cannot be touched by human description, not even by the most skilled of bards with the most powerful of the muses as his guide. The raw power of the stopping, the emotional turmoil of ceasing, it is something to be awed.
The feelings though were deadly, the feelings he had as he watched the end unfold before him. The feelings were infinite, unreal, crushing. He stood atop Brazer's Point, high on the hill looking out over what had previously been the city of Griggs, looking down into the fire. So bright.
His face was covered in blood from a wound in his head; his side burned from some kind of puncture wound, his exposed skin had been burned in many places, the rest had been slammed by the force of the explosion, and the heat was stifling, but he did not feel anything.
The explosion had taken his home, and thrown it miles into the air, had burned, and pumm

So it's been a while again. A looong while.
However! This time I have quite a few legitimate excuses lined up. Haha. The first and only real reason is we had a housefire in the beginning of December. So that was pretty whack. And since then I haven't had internet. So yknow, DA being on the internet and all...
Also recently I haven't been able to find my camera, which sucks a whole lot. I really want to find it.
On the happy side of things, I should be able to put up some new poems and stuff, especially since my awesome girlfriend TragicXpression has been a huge inspiration. I've got like a month of stuff written down in my notebook, so I'll have to weed through them and see what I can put up. ;)

See ya guys soon.
