Wolf and The Day

NBI 2014 has already started off with a bang. Not only has the Havoc in Hearthstone tournament been running for the past week, people have also been pledging their allegiance with NBI support posts. The Indie Game Gala starts tomorrow, and the following weekend is the League of Legends night that I’m hosting. But today, something new kicked off. What might that be?

The Poetry Slam, headed up by Syl of MMOGypsy. Click that link to learn all about it.

This year’s theme is “Magic.” I haven’t had time to properly crank out some poetry, but I did have some lyrics I wrote for a band I was in a few years back. Magic isn’t strictly in play here, although I think Lycanthropy and Vampirism still have a magic sense about them. With that said, I’m going to post these two bits of lyrics today, and will attempt to write something more specificially about magic at a later date. The Poetry Slam last until May 30th, so get on yours if you haven’t already!

Wolf

Feel the warmth of the fresh kill

The life trickles out
The beat becomes still
The beast becomes me
I am the wolf
I am the night
I am your dream
I am your life

As the sun starts to fade
I feel my strength return to me

I am not like you

The change comes while out of sight
I am reborn in the moonlight

I am not like you 

Feel my power grow as I
Pile my victims high
I cannot control the hunger
I cannot spare your life
I am the wolf
I am the night
I am your dream
I am your life

As the sun starts to fade
I feel my strength return to me

I am not like you 

The change comes while out of sight
I am reborn in the moonlight

I am not like you 


 

The Day

End it all
There is no hope
He said I did not have to fall
I did not see
What he meant
He said that he would save me

Why
Did you
Take my life?

Now I’ll never see the day
With your blood inside my veins
Looking for a place to hide
So the sun won’t take my life

He explained
That he would
End all of my suffering
But now all that
I can do
Is destroy the living

Why
Did you
Take my life?

Now I’ll never see the day
With your blood inside my veins
Looking for a place to hide
So the sun won’t take my life

He offered unto me
This curse of immortality
Now I’ll never ever die
And I will feed upon your life

I can’t go back to the day…
