When the Heart is no Longer Everything by Nocturnaliss When the Heart is no Longer Everything :iconnocturnaliss:Nocturnaliss 3 2
Life is a wonderful balance
One day it hands you new chances
One day it sweeps them away
Abandons you to pray
for a better tomorrow
but oh how you know
that there will be no rainbow
at the end of the road
And you break beneath waves
As you stand and you witness
The storm's untamed rage
Tearing out pages
Ink all but fades
And there is silence
And silence
A deep breath
Breathe and believe
You're no longer drowning
:iconnocturnaliss:Nocturnaliss 1 9
You never said you care
You left me, bare
By the side of the road
With none but the crows
You looked back; I was still there,
Struggling to breathe
Their darkness all I could see
Didn't even care
To check my remains
For a heartbeat
Or a scare
... you should have.

Your voice drowns out the air
I speak but you're not there
Depuis mon silence je n'espère
Que de les voir te briser dans ta chair.
When did it all go wrong?
When did we lose our strong connection?
Depuis quand ne sommes-nous plus
L'unité que tu avais toujours voulue?
The call of light is faint now.
Darkness ripples along skin and brow
Tu me vois faible, fragile, quand bien même
Je serai le couteau, la main blessée qui t'aime.
Go to sleep now, everything will be alright
Close your eyes; for you I've cried
Un millier d'ombres à l'affût de cet instant
Plus qu'une larme, baignée de sang.

It has been a while
It has been a while, my friend.
How have you been?
Life has changed so much since you've been gone.
Do you remember what you said to me,
Five years ago,
When I last held your hand in mine?
"Don't miss me."
I'm sorry to have disappointed you.
Do you see the sky from where you are?
Are you watching the same fiery sunset?
Are you thinking about our time together,
When you used to knock on my head
Whenever I compared the sky to your hair?
Do you remember me?
Life is not the same. I am not the same.
I see you wherever I go.
I jump at the screech of tires.
And I remember the blank stare in your eyes.
"Don't miss me."
How can I not?
I have tried and failed so many times
That I have stopped trying altogether.
You know I have.
I think I saw you, that one time.
You didn't look like an angel at all.
"I told you not to miss me," you laughed.
But you were dead serious.
I'll try not to miss you my friend,
But you know I can't guarantee that.
Even now that my life is starting to make sense.
You'll al

It needs to stop
Let's talk about the stories we make up.
You've only written the dramatic bits, haven't you?
Admit it, you wrote the part about the girl sobbing in the corner and being comforted by her boyfriend, and that's it. You were on an emotional high from listening to your mp3 player and wrote it, but didn't give a thought to anything else yet. And probably never will.
People think that the dramatic parts are the deepest, but the truth is, they're not. They're the most shallow and the most obvious. They're the first, and most of the time only, parts that people write.
Anyone can get on an emotional high. NOT everyone can make interesting inbetween scenes, which have the important task of making us actually CARE about the characters that the dramatic things are happening to.
We think we're being "deep" and "dark" and it's just our "style" to write dramatically. THIS IS FALSE. THIS IS A LACK OF IMAGINATION. PERIOD.
A rich story is not made up of ONE thing. That's SHALLOW. The opposite of what you

So I made a new video. The idea was to replace the other one, but, after a dozen tries, I gave up. And as I had plugged in the webcam, I thought it stupid to not do anything at all with it.

(am I gonna post more videos? ... I dunno. If I do, chances are I'll post 'em here, too. Cuz I can! :D)

So, really: if anyone has any question, let me know. I really like to answer questions. It gives my mind focus. ... and I'm discovering I actually sorta like the whole Youtube thing (and I can't believe I'm actually saying that).

More crappy-sounding English and I totally misspoke when I said 'still' instead of 'yet' :D (you'll notice when you hear it)
  • Playing: At being famous. Cuz I can. Yay for Youtube! :D
