The Ramblings

Postby Kaome Sky Deathand » Fri Oct 03, 2008 1:24 am

I don't expect you to understand, so don't try if my mouth sounds hurt your head.
Something for a few I think. You will enjoy it at least.
Post if you want...if you think it will help.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Without honor, nor shred of taste.
Falsehoods, fairs, all fall from grace.
Broken image in the head.
Of the living, kill for the dead.
Told me once, scold me thrice.
Take a gamble, roll on dice.

Presented here, before the fall.
Throw the body against the wall.
Rook to Bishop, swords slung sing.
Round the Knight, Pawn checks King.
Murder backwards, red rum nigh.
Cast out scorched earth, the blood shot sky.

Traitor branded as a fool.
Puppets sit, uncouth/uncool.
The power of the 'people' shall come to believe they do rule.

I sit and simmer, seethe my rage.
Spread the blood, like ink, on page.
Watch as everyday goes by....
Another moron on mountain ply.
Every merchant dull and bland.
Scratch out a living in the sand.

I'll cut you quick, now here's the deal:
Hold no valor, keep no zeal.

And yet I see a glimmer quick, a sparking thing intrude.
It writhes within my banded thoughts, my secrets that I brood.
Is this what they call hope? I discard it lightning fast.
Play out your hand, call my bluff, pray as die is cast.
Players in the game you see, we wear a scarlet sash.
I'll send you my salvation love, in scales, in dust, in ash.

Chant the Anthem, Sing the Hymn, each epic lyric thrice intone.
Walk my darkened path dear friends, walk with me alone.
Cruor Vult

Hope, it is the quintessential human delusion,
simultaneously the source of our greatest strength, and our greatest weakness.

Soon we shall be One...joined in the Word.

HAH!
The demons pull the veil over your eyes.
I see clear through their lies.
You lash out at time and space.
Learn to sift, reflect, displace.
Burning hands and burning brands.
Through my fingers let slip the sands.

It is within my powers vast to stop your troubled land.
To seek and guide, cut out the cancer, craft with my right hand.
Yet I feel a certain something stop me, it bids me take my place,
Among the ancient, buried dead of that long forgotten race.

Within this vial, craw crimson rain!
The juice of sorrow, drink of pain.
Blasted here since His First Fall.
So rest assured, my dearest friends, I know the pathways all.

And all shall know in this due time,
The rule will be a dark one, but it will be mine.

Here lies a living legend, cast before the feet of man.
What shall they do with him? What makes them think they can?
Take down this note false one, write it in the sky.
Put your hand upon your head, and turn it your blind eye.

Take a pinch, a pit of woes, a pot of golden aches.
Burn the heretic for his lies upon your silver stakes.
EXCISE! EXCISE! BURN IT OUT! Each steel backed doctrine thrice intone!
Cast him in to your uncaring, cast him there alone.

With heavy heart and heavy pack, I step out into the sea.
The dunes roll this way and that, dust and ash the only sight for me.
My travel will be lonely, my trek an arduous one.
Perhaps I will find my answers...
Perhaps I'll be undone...

The Ramblings

Postby Kaome Sky Deathand » Tue Oct 14, 2008 2:07 am

Needless to say, another day has passed away.
Yet everything, and nothing, has changed.
Awake I lie, my thoughts get lost up in the sky.
Needless to say, nothing will change...

Maybe a mystic - with fortunes to tell...
Surrender my coin at the old wishing well...
Maybe the stars will light in the night...
To show me the path that is right.

'Would've beens' and 'could've beens' they waste my days away.
The colors of my life dissolve and fade to gray.

So many paths of promise...
Indecision poisons my mind.
If only I had seen the signs - so blind.
Yet I must journey on - on and on.

A haunting vision torments me...
It smothers and steals my dreams.
I see an old man in the mirror...
cold and bitter starring back at me.

Here I am - at the crossing of life I stand.
On my own - looking down the road.
Hear my cry - answer me!
Still I'm searching - yet the truth is unknown - though the night is cold.
I walk the road alone...

No, I didn't do this.
Yes, this does seem a coincidence doesn't it?

On the edge of paradise, tears of woe fall, cold as ice.
Hear my cry!
Renounce, have you, thy name?
Eternal is my pain.

Eternal is the pain that leads me to the thrones of temptation.
Eternal is the pain that leads me to the thrones of temptation...

There was a time, when nine choirs sang the endless melody of light.
Music of the spheres...
There was a place, where mortals embraced thunder and majesty.
Their fate lay in our hands.
I feel my wings slowly fading - forever lost in time - I cry.

The burning conflict I'm feeling...
It summons me to descend into the other side.
And just beyond the stars blazing a beam light from a red, velvet moon illuminates me.

I will devise, from perfect skies, a dark and vengeful day.
Faith and mercy gone astray.

With strength of infinite measure, the mighty sword divides order from chaos in the kingdom below.
And from the mansions of glory, this empty soul cries out one final plea...
The end has begun.

Our worlds collide, now in disguise, you'll feel the Wrath Divine
Tears of woe fall from the sky ...

The prophet cries!
Vast battalions rage on in the sky.
Rising from the north - the bringer of war.
Eve of destruction.
Summon all who have 'power over fire'
Impending doom from shore to shore.

Standing on the edge of paradise, I sacrifice my truth and loyalty.
Seven deadly sins consume you all, a dance with death - I taste the victory.

(Eternal is the pain that leads me to temptation)

Rising from the north - the warrior prince.
Judgement without compassion, eyes of fear.
Like the river Styx, the gates of hell -
"Abandon hope all ye who enter here"

The prophets cry!
As armies fall from the edge of the sky.
The Prince of truth, now the bringer of war.

The day of wrath!
Banish all kings from the face of the land.
Dominion for strength is my name.

Looking out on a blue sky...
I can see a new world arising.
Like a prisoner unbound, I feel the power and the majesty again.

Looking up to the heavens, I can see what I left behind.
Beneath the stars, moon and warm sun.
And all I know, is my paradise has begun...

Truth be told, I hate this part.
Nevertheless, it had to be done and I took a moment to collect my thoughts and data-streams before reciting the Catechism of Computation under my vox synthesized breath.

"Omnissiah protect thy circuits, let this unworthy relay speed the electrons of thy great computation, preserving us from burnout. May your humble servants blessed Mind Impulse Unit be free of shunts and be spared feedback. Grant this one a quick download that his time may be better devoted to things not as frakked as this."

True enough, that's not exactly how it goes, but either the Omnissiah would shine on my endeavors or I'd spend the next few cycles cleansing my cogitator unit of corrupted data and hydra-viruses. I stuck the exposed wire into my wrist mount and connected to the system with relative ease. It was only then I felt the sickening lurch as the data washed through me.

Too much. I resolved.
I began the arduous task of sifting through the data and deleting anything that proved to be useless.
Which was just about everything to be honest.

Need Thrones fas- *Purge*
Find a local f- *Purge*
Logues brothel extrava- *Purge*
Enlarge your p- *PURGE*
For a good time send con- *FWD: INQ Dusk*

That should be worth the reprimand.
I dove back into the stream of data and got down to the business of hunting hereteks.
If there is one thing I hate more than mindless aliens, it's cultists that think they know how to use technosorcery.
Ah well, the Omnissiah never rests, how can we as His servants do anything less than that?
Besides...if I don't find a lead soon, the Inquisitor will probably cut my stipend off.....

I hope not...we will be getting to know each other for a very long time... I take my leave of you... Willingly you came here, your first mistake. Willingly you let an outburst escape your lips, your second. I do not allow my visitors to make three mistakes foolish wretch. You will leave when I deem it and you will speak when spoken to... ..!..

The Ramblings: "Her"

Postby Kaome Sky Deathand » Sat Nov 15, 2008 9:17 pm

Her eyes would be like a sea of jade, her lips the color of freshly spilled blood. She could look at me without moving her eyes and dance with me without moving her legs. To say she is not a special woman because all women are special is a travesty. She hugs me from behind and breathes against my neck every time she wants me to know she is there. Her smile would be radiant, but I'd love her far more for her pout or frown. Her stance would tell me what she wanted and her fragrance would bring tears to my eyes of a thousand promises of tomorrow. I'd be able to talk to her about anything for any amount of time. She would know in an instant if I was troubled and know in two instances how to fix it. She wouldn't have a problem showing off her body to me whenever she wanted to tease. She would flirt to rile me up, but a draw the line plain and clear, knocking some poor fool into the next world before I could even lift a hand. Any woman that approached me had better be family or long time friend, for her wrath would destroy worlds and people would die in my name under her baleful gaze. She would have me, and I her.

The silencer would make a whisper of the gunshot.
I'd hold her until she left me....

If only she was real.

The gunshot seemed to echo between the brick walls.
Another fell dead.
Four seconds....three seconds...two seconds...one...
Another retort as the weapon in his hands barked and another joined the first at his feet.
Four seconds....three seconds...two seconds...one...
The third one seemed slightly muffled, probably due to the ringing in his ears.
Still, the desired effect made itself seen as a third body joined the pile.
Four seconds....three seconds...two seconds...one...
Not another soul. He turned and ran, the alley clear of any moving bodies and that kept his heart rate steady.
Five round clip...three rounds...two rounds...reload...can't stop...RELOAD...
He fumbled, taking shelter behind a refuse can and unlatching the clip. The old rifle had held up good, the .32 making short work of the unarmored fleshy heads and chests. He had a bandoleer about himself, very old school, but functional.
Three...two...one... a small click for each number that ran in his head.
He smacked the clip back in and fled further into the cities interior.

Higher ground...gotta...find a shotty...gotta get....higher ground...
Leaping a still smoldering wreck of a cycle, he stumbled around a corner and could scarce believe his eyes.
One on the ground, one on each side of the narrow alley WALLS.

"GOSH! Are we having a ball or what?" muttered one, brandishing a knife.
The rifle was already up and the trigger pulled.
Four seconds....three seconds...two seconds...one...

The Word brings Hope.
The Word does not bring Punishment.
The Word brings Forgiveness.
The Word does not bring Conflict.
The Word brings Peace.

I am the Word...and the Word is Zivyral."
