    A poetry thread, gathering what a certain someone wrote and left behind....

    "Even when this mortal shell is gone...My spirit...will live on..."
    ~Zemus, Final Fantasy IV

    Hello. The quote I posted may have come from an evil character that definitely meant something else, but the message itself resonated with my mind and heart all the same. Even after we die, even if we don't believe in God....all living things, especially humans, have the tendency to leave their footprints behind. Even the male black widow spider, cannibalized by its mate after mating, supplies her with the nutrients necessary for her to continue to live. Even though it didn't last, it made a difference.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that no matter how useless we see ourselves because of our lack of self-esteem or how great we see ourselves because of our pride, we can still make a difference in someone's life. Maybe that's something outside the comfort zone for some of you, but kindness does keep the world afloat. What you do in your lives can inspire people to do the same for someone who truly needs it.

    "You can't change the world without getting your hands dirty."
    ~Lelouch Lamperouge, Code Geass

    Riddel was that person for me. Despite everything the world threw at her, she carried on and did not waver. She continued to be kind even after finding out she was going to die. All I could be for her was a misguided pillar of support. Years went by after she passed away, and gradually I began to grasp the kind of person she truly was. And over the past few years, I tried showing the world what she meant to me. And some of these things came from unfinished fan fiction works. I gave up many times because I lacked the motivation but recently I felt its spark turn on again.

    I already posted her poems in other forums, and now I want to show them here. Depending on the feedback, I might post many times throughout the day, once a day being the minimum amount. Comments are appreciated but not necessary. All I want to do is post her works and hopefully someone would be inspired to write. Her legacy will live on.

    Here is the first poem I wanted to post. And I thank the PC administration for letting me and all writers be exempt from the double-post rule.

    [Redemption]

    Frail as I am
    My mind is more so
    Though life is confusing
    I am more so

    I spout off words
    Hoping to reach anyone and then turn away
    Before giving anyone the chance to speak

    So standing before you now
    My eyes water up as I choke on my words
    Redemption for the poor girl that I am
    Redemption is what I seek
    For all the words of yours I never heard
    And for all the words of yours I now never will

    My foolishness gets the better of me
    I, the weaver of words
    I, the child of literature

    Just me

      [Mistakes]

      Yeah I've screwed up bad
      Lied like it was my life
      And tried to get through
      Even though I missed you
      But don't forget
      I love you like my friend
      And don't forget
      No matter what
      I'll be there for you in the end
      Because I love you
      My friend

      Yes those mistakes
      They were quite rough
      I've lied before
      But not like this
      Because I cannot do this
      Cannot dismiss the feelings of woe
      The feeling I've wronged
      Beyond repair
      But now I give to you
      The promise that I'll do better
      Do it better for you

      Because I love you my friend
      I hope you love me through my mistakes

        Sorry for not posting one yesterday. I'll post two to make up for it...

        [The Fall of Icarus ]

        Calm

        The sun rises slowly
        The ploughman ploughs
        The sheepherder watches his sheep
        The ships sail on
        The port town wakes

        Chaos

        Unnoticed to everyone
        Icarus is in the water
        The sun had melted
        Those wings of wax
        His struggle with death
        Caused amazing amounts of
        Fear to surface

        Futility

        Screams in the distance
        The ship lets down its sails
        Screams in the distance
        The herder shrugs and looks away
        Screams in the distance
        The ploughman just has to finish
        Screams in the distance
        The port town lay quiet

        Closure

        Death approached like a shadow
        Stealing away Icarus's last breaths
        The boy went limp
        Sunk low into the water
        All that remains are feathers
        Light on the water's surface

        -----

        [The Unnoticed Beauty]

        The lighting played part
        But certainly not much
        For the beauty displayed
        Was certainly her own

        Those cerulian eyes
        Soft porcelian skin
        Amazing velvet hair
        Pale and Beautiful

        She was one of amazing grace
        The way she moved...
        Simply amazing

        But tore herself down
        With acts of pain
        She held the blades close
        And watched the blood
        Such disdain

        The beauty unnoticed
        He vowed to protect
        With light in his eyes
        He balled up his fists

        Never again did the beauty hurt
        Never again did she dance with blades
        Never again was she alone

          Once again I have failed to log in every day, so here comes two poems. Fortunately my vacation will arrive soon, so I'll have more time to post.

          But anyway, these two poems came from a notebook that was found after Riddel's death. I hope you enjoy reading them.

          [Miseries]

          Your dark eyes are stark and alarming
          Your words sound drained and dry
          There's misery in your bones

          In life so long yet short you live conflicted
          Questioning reasons quite obvious
          And truths you find to be lies

          In this state I ask you
          I beg of you quite humbly
          To close your eyes and breath deep

          Miseries are temporary
          When they seem quite permanent you must see
          They are only as permanent as you make them to be

          I hope one day to see you smile
          I hope to hear your melodic voice once more
          Someday I will

          Let miseries pass

          -----

          [In due time]

          Loving as he was
          He held her hand quite delicately
          The ring in his pocket reminded him
          He had something very special to ask

          Worried as she was
          She could feel the change
          The odd tenseness in his actions
          She worried he wasn't well

          In due time they join
          Surprised and loving
          They belong

            I'm a little late but here's the next poem for the 20th of October. I'll post the one for today later.

            Games

            A curiosity with death so alarming
            You play about it with a blade
            Knowing somehow you'll stay alive
            But you always come out bleeding

            Suicidal is a dangerous word
            Things are assumed if you say it
            If you think it
            But maybe it's just
            Curiosity of the game of life

            What will happen when you lose
            Is it just a restart
            Or do you just fade away
            You think it is just a game

              [Alone]

              You sit quietly
              Crying because of him
              I sit the same
              But I know no one will come

              You and I
              Should be together
              To comfort a friend
              In a time of need

              But I am here
              And you are there

              But let's try to visit soon

                  It looked so nice
                  The melting snow
                  The birds coming out
                  Sounds of wind were all that disturbed

                  Peace at last

                    [Gone]

                    Am I really awake?
                    Everything feels so real,
                    yet this seems so impossible.
                    Have you really left me?
                    You said you never would,
                    but where are you now?
                    Why is your name upon this grave?
                    I just don’t understand,
                    this must be a dream.

                        [Staring through the eyes of death]

                        Heart aching and pounding
                        She stepped forth
                        In the silence which once held screaming
                        She found herself dying

                        And you stood there

                        Quivering hands covered in blood
                        She reached out
                        She tried to find words
                        But her voice was already gone

                        And you stood there

                        To cause such pain was a pleasure
                        Your smile and gleaming eyes
                        It was apparent you did this
                        And even more that you hadn't cried

                        You just stood there

                        Strength failing
                        Life fading
                        And blood draining
                        She lay down to die

                        -----

                        [I watched]

                        I watched her heart break
                        As he said those words to her
                        I watched her smile fade
                        As he said he wasn't going to try anymore
                        I watched her tears fall
                        As he slowly turned and walked away
                        I watched her hurt herself
                        As he lived his life
                        I watched her life change
                        After she saw his grave

                        Suicide will solve nothing
                        But somehow she had to try
                        So no more are these two people
                        No more will they make each other cry

                        I love her as my sister
                        But now I am an only child

                          [Loss]

                          We fear it
                          We think of it always
                          But how many of us
                          Really expect it?

                          I feel it now
                          Deep in my soul
                          A fear worse than every before
                          The fear of losing her

                          -----

                          [Memory]

                          Just sitting around
                          Not a word need be passed
                          We were happy

                          Laughing at those jokes
                          That no one else understood
                          And knowing we held a bond
                          Unlike any other

                          These memories are fond ones
                          But somehow leave me sad
                          Forever I'll hold them near
                          Knowing they are your gift to me

                            [Time]

                            It was a silly time
                            Laughing at nothing
                            But laughing at everything
                            All at the same time

                            I wrapped my arms around you
                            And we both gasped for breath
                            Laughing so hard made it difficult
                            To get the air we needed

                            But somehow we didn't mind

                            It was a sad time
                            Watching all the pain
                            From each other's eyes
                            Knowing we can't help this time

                            I wrapped my arms around you
                            So we could cry together
                            Crying so much made it difficult
                            To see everything around us

                            But somehow we didn't mind

                            It was a loving time
                            Feeling our connection
                            Stronger than we had ever before
                            And staying side by side

                            I wrapped my arms around you
                            And in silence we felt
                            All of the emotions made it difficult
                            To find words that fit

                            But somehow we didn't mind

                              Something about her makes me uneasy…
                              Maybe it’s a slight fear or dislike,
                              But in searching for words to describe it
                              I manage to find none that work…

                              As time passes I’ve noticed
                              No one says a word to her,
                              Knows her name,
                              Or even seems to see her there.

                              I swear she’s just in my mind…
                              A figment of my imagination…
                              My guilty mind,
                              Perhaps,
                              Making up someone I once knew.

                              I see her when I turn away
                              Out of the corner of my eye…

                              She sits in the shadows
                              And watches silently…

                              Don’t you see her?
                              She’s…
                              The girl of my guilty mind
                              The girl I once was
                              The girl I left behind

                              [Nostalgia]

                              I’m drowning in them
                              But still I’m drawn to them

                              My memories

                              So close,
                              But never to be touched again
                              Never to be relived
                              They are only remembered
                              Only to be replayed in my mind

                              Seeing you reminds me
                              Of the times we used to laugh
                              We used to smile
                              We used to love to be together

                              Only memories now
                              I think I’m sinking again…

                                [The Happiness]

                                Happiness he’d never seen before
                                Rest in her eyes
                                Sparkled in her smile
                                And danced in her laughter

                                Such happiness he’d never known
                                It seemed as if it was unreal,
                                As if she was unreal

                                He wanted to pinch her
                                Just to see if she felt pain,
                                To see the smile fade away

                                Her wonder and beauty
                                Untouched by the world
                                And all of its flaws
                                He just couldn’t believe

                                Infatuation
                                Became
                                Jealousy

                                Soon he could do nothing
                                But tear her down,
                                Cause her pain,
                                And give her scars

                                All for happiness he’d never know

                                  [The Shadow Girl]


                                  Behind her I found my place
                                  At her side whenever she needed
                                  Whenever she wanted me there

                                  Desperate to be someone
                                  I watched her every step of the way
                                  To try and understand what set us apart
                                  To understand why she was someone
                                  When I was no one

                                  Day in and day out I observed
                                  I made myself useful
                                  And served as a good friend

                                  Often when she was not around
                                  People would come to me
                                  Asking where she was
                                  But not even knowing my name

                                  I became her shadow then
                                  For over a year I would be such


                                  Watch The Shadow Move


                                  On my own for once
                                  I had no one to shadow
                                  And I began to create myself

                                  At first I was lost
                                  Not sure what to do
                                  Or who to be
                                  But I tried anyway

                                  I made mistakes of course
                                  But they were my mistakes
                                  And I made sure to learn from them


                                  The Sun Flushes Out The Shadow


                                  No longer is there a trace
                                  Of the weak and forgotten girl
                                  In her place I now stand
                                  Making myself known as who I am

                                  But never will I forget
                                  The Shadow

                                    [Too Much]

                                    Overwhelmed by feeling
                                    Circuits fried and overloaded
                                    Too many feelings
                                    Too much pain
                                    Too much fear
                                    Too much hurt

                                    I just want to scream
                                    So everyone will know
                                    Just want to scream
                                    To let it all out

                                    But my voice is small
                                    And my lungs wish not to grasp the air
                                    So silently I suffer this overload

                                    The feelings burst
                                    And on tear soaked pillows I lay
                                    Waiting for someone to come
                                    And wipe the tears away

                                    Hated for loving
                                    Hurt for caring
                                    And yelled at for being

                                    I cannot take another scream
                                    Not another harsh word
                                    Not another glare from across the room

                                    I just ask that you leave me be
                                    And let me live as me

                                    I will always love
                                    I will always care
                                    I will always be
                                    So why not let me?

                                    [Heavy Heart]

                                    She held her hand to her heart
                                    The strings had begun to break
                                    And the feelings had begun to burst

                                    Overwhelmed so quickly
                                    By every little emotion
                                    She screamed and cried out
                                    Looking for some escape

                                    But her heavy heart would remain
                                    And the bonds in which it was once held
                                    Would prove worthless

                                    She was one of a heavy heart

                                        [Complications]

                                        Complications keep us working
                                        Our head spinning to think
                                        Of all that lies before us
                                        We'd like to believe that the clear road ahead
                                        Goes on until the end
                                        But somewhere along the way
                                        We find the branches have fallen down
                                        Maybe a tree or two
                                        And suddenly things look so overwhelming
                                        But through these complications
                                        We walk through life
                                        Looking for joy
                                        And we live off of it
                                        And while my life has it's complications
                                        Remember you are my joy
                                        I'll always smile for you
                                        You'll always keep me alive
                                        Even if thing get
                                        A little more complicated

                                        I could feel it
                                        Her eyes were on me again

                                        Then we made the connection
                                        My eyes and hers
                                        Locked together

                                        A color I'd never seen before
                                        And a sparkle in her eyes
                                        I'd only seen in the night's sky


                                        Somehow she had stolen the stars

                                          I've been reading through most of these poems over the course you have been posting them, but just really couldn't think of anything to say because poetry isn't exactly my forte. However "Stolen Stars" really stood out to me somehow. I think it was because of the last line.

                                          It's just what the poem needed and the perfect ending for it as well. It stands out on its own and the extra gap just makes it stand out even more. It just really struck me. I don't have much of an explanation, but there you go.

                                          I would love to comment on the others, but as I said before I'm still working on poetry, so I really can't think of much to say. Just thought I would drop by, give my two cents, and let you know that there is someone out there reading through these.

                                            An updated version was found in Riddel's notebook days after she passed away, so I guess I could go ahead and post it too. This was the last poem she posted on my forum, but her brother and best friend carried on her work and posted what they found so more will be posted.

                                            And thank you. It really makes me glad someone's reading them.

                                            Those eyes on me again
                                            I could feel her loving gaze

                                            We make the connection
                                            -My eyes and hers
                                            locked together-

                                            Stunning blues I'd never seen before
                                            And a sparkle so pure and beautiful
                                            That I'd only seen it once before-
                                            Shining in the night's sky


                                            Somehow she had stolen the stars

                                            To smile is to love
                                            To give a little piece of yourself
                                            And what harm does it do to you?
                                            But oh the joy it brings
                                            To the one who sees your grin

                                            I try to smile
                                            Even when I'm down
                                            After the smile is returned
                                            The darkness of my woe
                                            Is lightened

                                              Bring me those broken ones
                                              The fearful and frightening ones
                                              And somehow I will work through
                                              And salvage the happiness
                                              Through tears and screams
                                              You'll wake in a fright
                                              But that's the time of night
                                              You need just call me
                                              And I will mend those broken nightmares
                                              Into pleasant dreams
                                              Let me help you sleep peacefully
                                              Even if it means losing the sleep I need

                                              Oh dearest love
                                              The touch of which I know not
                                              I feel the pangs and explosions
                                              But why do you do this?
                                              I feel the connection
                                              The need, the want
                                              I feel the devotion, the emotion
                                              the commotion you cause

                                              To one such as I
                                              Who feels not the touch of love
                                              I live with other things
                                              Like the wishes
                                              The worries
                                              The wants

                                              Will we one day be...

                                                The lonely piano was silent
                                                A player at its keys
                                                Fingers waiting at the key tips
                                                Hands urging the player to move them

                                                A chord is struck
                                                And the loneliness disappears

                                                  Standing on the shore
                                                  The water drifting in and out
                                                  I watched as the soft light
                                                  And pale sky
                                                  Rained down its colors
                                                  And drenched the world in blues

                                                  I watched as the waters calmed
                                                  The sounds softened
                                                  And the world blurred

                                                  Thus was the dream

                                                    [The Tapping Of Inspiration]

                                                    Bleakly,
                                                    She wallowed in sadness at the typewriter

                                                    A sigh escaped her lips

                                                    The quiet room embraced the sound until it faded
                                                    Relieved that, for a moment, there was no silence
                                                    For the room had grown quite fond of the tapping of the typewriter

                                                    That sound was one of her inspiration

                                                    But today the room lay silent
                                                    Except for the occasional sigh

                                                    Inspiration was absent and both the typewriter and room itself missed it dearly
