Air so crisp and water so clear
Lacking all that I hold dear
No point to life without fault
The best things locked in a vault
As I stand on this lonely pier
Nothing to do for a lonely year
On my cheek a tear of salt
It is only the imperfect I exalt
It is onlt the perfect I fear
The monontony of the eternally austere

New line
A sickening smell

A sickening smell
That stench of hell:
Not sulfur, brimstone,
But smells unknown.
That smell of fear
Will hurt your ears.

I somersault into the waves

I somersault into the waves
Hoping for sweet embrace
Too early as the peak caves
And slaps me hard on my face.

The archetype of a human

The archetype of human, was quite slow witted and dumb.
Luckily, what filled his rumen, was Nature's equilibrium.

The combo of malts, yeast, waters and hops, made everyone feel quite on the top. This utopia had noneed for cops, until one day someone had dropped!

In humanity's curiosity, one thing came to be. Learning why was all that mattered to he.

What a sausagefest..

What a sausagefest
All LAN parties are the same
At least I kick ***.

I always lied to you.

I always lied to you
And never felt bad
You kept coming back
And that made me so mad.
I never gave you a reason to love me
I always hated that you stayed
I wanted you to go
So I could be alone

I hurt you too much
The last time around
When I realized I loved you
And you couldn't forgive me
Because I broke your heart too many times before
You couldn't seem to find it in you
To let someone in
So I saw you shut your heart down
And store all emotions beneath the skin.
So this is a goodbye
To all of my family and friends
I just want all of this to end.

Yeah this sucks butt. XD

The rain poured down

The rain poured down
Always the same direction
Never returning to the sky
In the same form.
Evoporation, just a slow death
Torn apart by the sun

The singular, final journey
Of a raindrop
Ends in a pitiful pool

A Thousand million drops
race for the earth
Instead trophies, the victorious
win only eternal slumber

The discarded bodies of the drops
form puddles of death
Children laugh and stomp
in the graveyard of rain.

I'm gonna get Tao on ya'lls with this new line:

The uncut block

The uncut block
the uncrafted stone
a new hope
hope that something new
will bring back loss
the loss of a keystone

Try this...

the distant sea of green

Sorry for the double post... That was supposed to be 'will take away loss'

The distant sea of green
I thought I saw was but
A summer field of grass,
Waving slow, waiting to be cut.

Just a note: The first First Line Digest is coming soon...

Summer's day is both short and long
