I am


I am the color red
On that bright pretty rose
I am the early morning dew
Or the water that just froze

I am the memory
Of the things to come
I am the glue
That binds things as one

I am the road
Which has no end
I am the force
That you need to defend

I am the art
Of a lovely dream
I am the shrill
Of a frightened scream

I am the madness
Of a day of fun
I am the heavy cloud
That can hide the sun

I'm the twilight
Of your midnight thoughts
In this life of strings
I am holding the knots

I am the breezing wind
Towards the painful fire
I am mother earth's
All forms of desire

I am the voiceless echo
Of an odourless scent
I am the agonised hate
I am what love meant

I am the temptation
That causes you to cave
I am the power
That you take to the grave

I am the close friend
That you want to know
I'm the one with piercing eyes
I am your deadliest foe

I am the laugh
Of a distant cry
In a series of attempts
I am your final try

I am the blood
Gurgling through your heart
I am the venom
That can tear you apart

In the perfect stone wall
I am the prominent crack
I am the white dove
Belonging to lady black

I am the love
Storming through the lust
When the mirror shatters
I form the shiny dust

I am the life
At the end of a rope
In a mindless journey
I am your hope

  1. It's not very related, but I was reminded of this fine song when I read this :

    You must have heard it, it's called "Gin soaked boy"

  3. Someone said
    We can put dope in their veins or hope in their brains.,

    and here I see the words dangling between bright and dark, but I like the ABABAB rhyming scheme.


    I dance in tune with what I fear
    To do adrenaline
    Completely rapt with what I hear
    When passion colors everything
    The songs I sing, from way out there to deep within
    The face I wear behind my grin
    The mess I made to the original sin
    Everything,

    ~Poets of the Fall.

    umm

    I am the close friend
    That you want to know
    I'm the one with piercing eyes
    I am your deadliest foe


    Positive and negative. Its like, if you wanna be bad then you gotta be good.
    Its like finding a silver line in darkest clouds and then trying to spot a cloud on a moonlit night.
    I say, don't try too hard, you can do wonders when you are at ease.
