TW Chapter 1 - Endless BridgeThe fire on the hearth flickered as if a wind blew and then died. Smoke hissed up from the hot coals for a moment, until they dissipated into the air. The floor was bereft of belongings, and swept clean. A bed stood in a far corner, opposite the fireplace. A small table rested next to the bed, with few belongings on it. The most prominent was a leather sheathed dagger. A young boy, Andar, lay sleeping beneath several thick woolen blankets. The dull sound of rain could be heard relentlessly pounding on the stone roof.
Andar awoke suddenly, gasping for breath. It felt as though someone had shoved ice down his shirt. A cold wind seemed to stir in the room, from no where at all. Disturbed, Andar grabbed his dagger and threw the covers off. As he stood up, his steps echoed through the stonework house. Again the air stirred from the unseen wind. A tor
TW Prologue - Gates of TimeMiranda awoke in twilight, surrounded by evergreen trees. She lay still beneath a canopy of trees, her black hair framing her face. The tattered clothes that covered her seemed out of place with her fair face. Her breath came slowly, and her heart beat rapidly. She tried to remember where she'd been last, but it was like wading into knee deep mud. Her memory was ethereal as fog, blown about by what seemed a stormy tempest. She struggled in vain to remember, but nothing came. Eventually, trickles of pictures and images came slowly fading in and out of her mind. At once, her mind was overpowered by a need for something. She knew it was urgent, but the thought was just beyond her reach. A painful image filled her senses, as she tried to fight back the thoughts flowing like water through herself. Image after image of senseless information exploded through her mind, with
RebellionWhat if they've shown me the truth?
Bout this rebellion your living
I'm living my life for her
So what if you did for me that?
What should I do?
I don't know the answer
I know everything but this
So what if you did tell me that?
What should I say?
Well I think I'd say no
I don't know the answers
I know nothing at all
So now that I've broken your heart
How should I answer you?
I don't know the answers
I know everything else but me
I believe in happy endings
For everyone but me
It seems a curseI stand a mile tall, and feel the whispers of the wind
They speak in silent melody to my thirsty soul.
The air I breath is growing thin, empty
Every second passed with a blurring line
Memories fade away, the future calls and I will go
Lift me down, and turn around,
Envious of you as you are of me.
You weren't thereThe air grew thick as she approached
My mind stirred in dark mists
As the terror came upon me.
I couldn't stand it, but could do nothing.
Left alone and worthless, I am lost
She begins to act, ruthlessly cutting away
Every fiber of self-worth is torn away,
Leaving heaps of ash behind in agony.
Though she knows it not, she is killing me.
Slowly, thought it may be, she is destruction.
Dark whispers of a blackened heart speak
They cry out, and yearn to me.
They say fight back, they say destroy...
Then at times I may move to action
I strike, but slow. Too late, and she counters.
Again my worth is stripped away
Leaving me bare in my darkness
Left to huddle in my defeat.
Despair darkens the deepest of hours
The black night seems a beacon of light.
Far away I can hear the truth calling out my name.
But it's voice is shrouded in fears and mists.
Again I hear the voice of death speak words.
They flow out of hatred and vile poisons.
Part of me wishes to give in, and strike
Is this all?Is this all?
All that you need
Are you ready to give up now?
Give up on the things that don't carry you
Carry you anywhere at all?
I'll never understand
Are you quitting on the people
Who just take you away?
Are you ready to trust now
Give the trust to us
We're the ones that still love you
And always will forever and again.
He's searching for your heart
You keep taking it away now...
Just waiting for the moment
When your lost the most.
Won't you ask for help,
When you need it so much
I just don't understand how
You can smile so brightly on the outside
Yet your soul is soaking in tears
Your lost, and you know it
But your never gonna show it
Broken and CagedI'm giving up on giving up slowly
And I'm quiting, oh I'm giving up
On being good enough
Cause I can't make it on my own
I'm lost inside the whirlwind of time
Stuck in the center of the storm
The thunder has come too soon
And the lightning is flashing around
I'm blind in the darkness
And I cannot see the way
Thought I try to look to you
I'm just lost in this world
So tell me what and how to do
Show me just the way to go
Don't leave me hanging on the edge
Come and take my hand once again
