    I STAND ALONE the poem

    I Stand Alone,of all things shorn
    on a dreary forsaken plain forlorn
    no hope.my dreams at my feet lie
    like shattered gems twinkling at the sky.
    no friends.no one to cry an alarm
    and welcome me home with open arms
    no one to whom i may implore
    for rescue from this PLUTONIAN shore(pluto is the God of the Dead,his realm is hades)
    Westward following the River Styx
    Stride I,the Damned.Stride I,the Damned.
    How much can i stand? i'm just flesh and bone.
    Forsaken.Forgotten.I Stand
    ALONE

    Heartbreak is now my intimate
    pain attends my every step
    how can i have joy for one instant
    when tears wrack my each and every breath?
    betrayed by the woman held in my arms
    so many betrayals the number is legion
    my heart is wounded,yes,severely harmed
    by the trials and travails of TRUE LOVE seeking.
    why should i go on? 'tis best to cease
    this useless pursuit for love fulfilled
    like a carcass attracting the carrion beast
    let Love be devoured.Let Hope be killed.
    Let my soul harden;let hatred bloom!
    let Rage and Fury replace hurt and pain
    send those who harmed me to their doom
    they'll never cause a heart to bleed again
    "CRY HAVOC AND LET SLIP THE DOGS OF WAR!"
    what else could my combat skills be for?
    rend their flesh from their hateful bone
    while i cavort (dance) in their blood.I STAND
    ALONE

    deep breath.ALONE.TRULY ALONE
    no one can honestly want this fate
    i lie down upon my grave and moan
    denied entrance to the Pearly Gates
    i'm surrounded by hate,agony,and lies
    like the clammy caress of long dead flesh
    what demon in angelic womanly disguise
    wishes to rip my heart right from my chest?
    dear God! what sins have i committed
    that I,for years,am tortured so?
    whatever i've done,i shall repent it
    just please,God,let this agony go!!
    each new year brings new pain
    each New Year brings fresh wounds
    perhaps there really is nothing to gain
    and early death would be a boon (gift)
    life seems like unremitting cruelty
    what a trvesty is all of Man!
    when the death knell comes (and soon 'twill be)
    what relief from this brief painful life span!!
    medusa-like your heart must be wrought of stone
    as you betray my love.
    I STAND ALONE


    I STAND ALONE...yet STILL I STAND!!
    let the truth ring across this land!
    despite the best that HATE has done
    it has not conquered,it has not won.
    no matter the tears that i have shed
    no matter the pain Life has allowed
    i still proudly hold up my head
    battered,bloodied,but never bowed! (like BOW DOWN)
    if defiance is a sin,then i gladly commi it
    come battle me,Reaper,whenever you choose!
    your web of deceit i shred as you spin it
    and in the end,Death,even you shall lose!
    i "don the Armor of Faith" and the Sword of Truth"
    the mightiest weapon a warrior may wield
    unchanged by wise Age or impetous Youth
    all things to the Sword of Truth must yield
    i gaze deeply into the mirror of my own soul
    though i am flawed,i'm still a good man!
    though rain may fall and thunder roll
    I STAND ALONE...YET STILL I STAND!!
    i release this pain which hurt my heart!
    i've learned well the lesson which it has taught
    the only failure is to quit,or not even start
    for the search for love is never for naught!
    i laugh! fear flees my invulnerable being
    like shadows fleeing encroaching dawn
    once opened,my eyes can't be stopped from seeing
    sweet Hope,great Joy,and blessed Calm
    FEAR IS NOT WORTHY OF BEING FEARED
    hatred is not worthy of the hate it makes
    embrace peace that comes from a conscience cleared
    lessons learned,acknowledged mistakes.
    wisdom gained,intelligence blooms
    joy and happiness swell unbridled
    trials foretold in ancient runes
    give rise to the warrior-philosopher unrivalled
    behold,i transcend what came before
    ascend the mightiest mountain peaks
    sail the winds,cause the oceans to roar
    embrace wild fire, hearken when trees speak
    i stand,and face the rising dawn
    come all who would join me upon the spire!!
    with a gesture, i cup the sun within my palm
    and rekindle the moon's argent fire
    bless the heavens with kisses that become constellations
    my heart outmatches heaven's splendorous gleam
    bring peace to strife,understanding to consternation
    and Fire becomes FLOW,Deth becomes SUPREME
    now i laugh,and gently touch my heart
    which agony had once rent through the bone
    i cup this knowledge in my soul,an eternal spark
    i look my ex in the eye,and smile
    I STAND ALONE

    enjoyable read. I like the cycle from abyssal dejectedness to understanding and acceptance of the same condition. I stand alone! Nice spin!

    I loved these lines among others of course:

    no one to whom i may implore
    for rescue from this PLUTONIAN shore
    Westward following the River Styx
    Stride I,the Damned.Stride I,the Damned.
    How much can i stand? i'm just flesh and bone.
    Forsaken.Forgotten.I Stand
    ALONE



    so many betrayals the number is legion

    like a carcass attracting the carrion beast
    let Love be devoured.Let Hope be killed.

    it was great!!! a long read, but great non the less... so complex, vocab out the wahzoo... very strong and complex piece as stated before... i read it twice as two make sure i picked up on everything

    embrace peace that comes from a conscience cleared
    lessons learned,acknowledged mistakes.
    wisdom gained,intelligence blooms
    joy and happiness swell unbridled
    trials foretold in ancient runes
    give rise to the warrior-philosopher unrivalled

    this would def. have to be my favorite part!!! great great great piece :)
