    MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 07-08 ~ Poems & Lyrics!

    I smell a fragrance in the wind blowing my way
    And ever further I run to find her
    I yearn to define my life
    Placing my faith in chance to meet me in half way

    Back row to the left
    A little to the side
    Slightly out of place
    Look beyond the light

    There's someone special

    Beloved Ones - "Beatriz" by TheBoss

    People may say
    That you will stay
    Alone...
    But You'll be okay
    Since I'm here to save your day
    My love.
    Girl for you I'll slay
    a monster everyday.
    I'll wipe you tears away
    and forever display
    my love for you.
    I'll won't let anyone lay
    harsh words on you again
    Because now I'm here to protect you.

    I just expect
    that you will never forget
    that nobody loves you
    more than I do.
    Cuz I'll never forget about you...



    - there Farf you asked a damn poem, there is your damn poem

    Its a poem about someone very dear to me, that unfortunately isn't with me at the moment...
    Well that is life right?

    Beloved Ones - "Princess" by Kaoinshi

    Where this light shines
    all night is day
    through work and festive play.

    It sits astride
    my tired heart
    deflecting all that's sharp.

    I found it when
    You - with a sigh -
    had me mirror'd in your eyes.

    I fell in Love
    before you said
    let us just be friends.

    As wonder went
    another grew
    through complexity and time.

    That through it all
    my loss and pain
    a far more precious friend was gained.

    I was there for her
    as she was there for me
    no matter what it took we always had eachothers back.

    From her wisdom
    I know success
    I am a loyal Knight, to my Princess.





    -Some beloved ones are worth taking a bullet for, this poem is about one of mine.

    Beloved Ones - "my secret lover" by scav


    sometimes i wish i could fly
    because she's like the blue sky
    she's out of range
    seems like we're separated by countless miles
    but it's strange
    just watching her is enough to make me smile

    whenever she comes the sun follows
    and my old me become a shadow
    leaving behind all the sorrow

    she's my secret lover
    to reach her i have to jump
    higher than ever
    but i'm afraid of the bump
    that might change my life forever

    Beloved Ones - "One Step at a Time" by Adorien

    One step at a time,
    closer and closer it feels.
    Reaching another line,
    countless and countless views.

    Don't jump, don't run.
    Just take it easy and let it in,
    one step at a time.

    Something will go wrong
    but soon after,
    full of laughter,
    everything becomes.

    Don't jump, don't run.
    Just take it easy and let it in,
    one step at a time.

    A trip, a fall,
    a hit and many more,
    and tears in between.
    It is never unseen.

    Don't jump, don't run.
    Just take it easy and let it in,
    one step at a time.

    Everything has changed,
    a new hour with a different face.
    And soon or even sooner,
    all again falls into place.

    Just don't jump, don't run,
    take it easy and let it in.
    One step at a time.

    Beloved Ones - Summer (A Peck and a Tweet) - By Devante Shawn Bennett aka RezzieThaRapper


    She got my love, she know that I do anything for her
    I'd even out yell thunder until my voicebox crumble
    Met her during vacation now I'm trying to extend summer
    Our conversations were intense and it makes me wonder
    She gave me energy, I wouldn't be beat if I fought drummers
    Lose myself next to her, I may act more dumber
    But if love lowers your IQ then call me Forrest Gump girl
    If there's truly treasure in trash I found my love in a dumpster

    Summer ends, Autumn winds blow me away
    Winter comes, Then spring brings the birds and the bees
    April Showers, starts blooming the May Flowers
    I'm a June Bug, and in July she greets me with a peck and a tweet

    Now we been running through the city together, and time has exceeded forever
    I met her mother and father, gave me blessing to marry the daughter
    But now that the wedding is thought up, and all the guest are all called up
    The energy from our first date to today is radiating like star dust
    I'm only loving her more, I couldn't fathom loving her less
    My mother tailored her dress, her father kept me from looking a mess
    As we read our vows, and kiss, the bliss of this is magnificence
    Honey moon on the last week of summer we watching it as the sun sets

    Summer ends, Autumn winds blow me away
    Winter comes, Then spring brings the birds and the bees
    April Showers, starts blooming the May Flowers
    I'm a June Bug, and in July she greets me with a peck and a tweet

    Beloved Ones "Sarah" by X3D2YFaust

    Sarah was her name
    I'm so happy ever since she came
    To my heart and life,
    To my soul and mind

    I always say I love her and not feel ashamed
    It's painful to see guys who treat her like a game
    While I'm here very lame
    Because she rejected me,
    And our relationship was not the same
    as it was yesterday

    Avatar Roku say
    When Love is Real it Finds a way
    But now my love is worthless
    No matter what I do she'll find it senselesss

    Maybe she is not the one for me,
    And we are not meant to be
    Someday someone will surely come
    And she will give me the Love I needed and seek
    and I will also give her some

    -------

    I did this poem while listening to the song "Aubrey" by Bread

    Sarah was my first love way back since High School (2007)
    I'm still having a hard time moving on
    She rejected me because she only view me as a friend and like an older brother
    Today she is still not comfortable when I'm around and she still doesn't talk with me personally

    Thanks to this contest I released the feelings inside me

    Beloved Ones "Please don't go" by kdowns

    They say that this shouldn't hurt
    But I feel like I should explode
    At the thought of you with someone else
    When you could be here with me

    Am I delusional?
    Is this what misery feels like?
    Why Can't I get my happy ending with you?
    Why... Why... WHY!

    They say that distance shouldn't matter
    When you're in my mind every day
    Corrupting and torment my mind
    With the sight of my beloved walking away.

    Please Don't Go.
    Please Don't Go.
    PLEASE DON'T GO.

    Am I delusional?
    Is this what misery feels like?
    Why Can't I get my happy ending with you?
    Why... Why... WHY!

    They say that love isn't measurable
    Yet I still tried to prove
    That you were my everything
    By you left me as a hollow shell of nothing
    Leaving me for someone else...

    Am I delusional?
    Is this what misery feels like?
    Why Can't I get my happy ending with you?
    Why... Why... WHY!

    Please...Don't...Go...

    ---------- Post added October 26, 2012 at 04:23 AM ---------- Previous post was October 25, 2012 at 10:15 PM ----------

    Generally when people think about their "Beloved" it is usually happy thoughts and I tried to go the Happy route but it was during that I realized, "Hey, Maybe I should write about the not so fun part of your "Beloved" ones/

    Beloved Ones "Looking back" by g0dzax

    Looking back at me,I can't help but wonder
    If there is such a thing as love
    And if love is supposed to be the most pure feeling in this world
    Surpassing every feeling and instinct
    Please,do please tell me,the reason as to why
    Love is the most common feeling that makes people cry...


    I remember all the days I spent with you
    And now that I have come to realize and accept who I am
    And all the things that represent me
    I can't help but chuckle and laugh at my old self
    I can't help but think and wonder how stupid I was
    Stupid enough,at least,for you to turn my world upside-down


    So no one can hurt me anymore,as I've surpassed
    I used to think of love as something that surpassed
    All the misery and suffering in this world
    As the key to happiness and the only thing in the world
    That only hold light to it and had no shadow to it
    The only thing capable of giving you true bliss


    So to the first girl I thought I had fallen in love with
    I decided to give her all my love,so that I can make her happy
    Make her so happy so that she can forget all the suffering
    Make her forget about the casual and boring day,
    I thought of my love as something that could warm her everyday
    So I decided to share my love with her
    As I then thought that love is also the only thing that
    When divided,gets multiplied


    I would really have done anything for you
    And blinded by this love,I just didn't see
    The way you were joking with me,playing with me
    Trampling on my feelings by your every word and action
    'Till the day you left me,when I was left with a dumb look in my eyes


    I had tried to tell you that I love you
    That I only mean to make you happy
    And the only thing that I required from you
    Was just to love me...


    But it had seemed that this word had no meaning to you
    I hope someday you'll come to understand it
    The same way I had
    And maybe,just maybe,you will know true pain too


    I've put way too much trust in you and your lies
    I only wish now I would have sooner realized
    I was just wasting my whole time and it makes laugh to think that
    I was so concerned of what you feel and think just to say how I feel inside
    I will show you that I'm not someone you can just step on
    I have my own pride,I hurt more than you can possibly imagine
    I only tell you to don't dare and toy with my feelings,'cause that's a dangerous game


    If nature would have taken the shape of my feelings
    When they were in their prime,when they were bursting with love
    No clouds would have been seen in the sky
    The sun would have shined everyday and warmed everyone's heart


    If nature would take the shape of my feelings
    Now that they have gone,when they have turned to bittersweat coldness
    Only clouds would be seen in the sky
    The sun would forever hide itself from our eyes,and coldness would embrace us all


    If we were to meet now,I'm sure you won't recognize me anymore
    I am no longer a stupid boy that you can sway
    Funny now,I guess I should thank you
    For the only one thing I learned from you : pain
    Has been my teacher every since,at least now I know
    That love has it's own,dark,murky shadow to it
    That it's greedy as hell and whenever there is love and happiness
    Lurking in the shadow,awaiting patiently,are hate and sorrow


    The moon glitters brightly in the night-sky
    And whenever I gaze at it,whenever I feel my heart ache
    From all the wounds that I unkowningly inflicted on it myself
    From all the wounds I received from people who didn't care about it
    I feel like crying,and then I remember that I mustn't shed tears
    Not for those who messed me,not for those who trampled on me
    So I keep my wits about me,and my tears remain within me
    A smile lights up my face,as I know that someday
    Someone,that special someone,will come
    And maybe,just maybe,true happiness and a true love shall burn in my heart


    Looking back at me,I can't help but wonder
    If there is such a thing as love
    And if love is supposed to be the most pure feeling in this world
    Surpassing every feeling and instinct
    Please,do please tell me,the reason as to why
    Love is the most common thing that makes people cry...






    -------------


    Lol I dunno how I actually managed to pull this off,I guess after 5 freaking failed relationships in which I met only girls who don't give a damn about feelings,guess you just get sentimental lol.
    Thank God there's beer in this world

    Beloved Ones - "Bonbon" by Shullbreit Portest

    En la niña de nuestros ojos,
    A través del calor de una comida, y la tranquilidad de un intercambio sensual,
    Estas palabras se verán transformar sus sustancias, para refinarse,
    Hasta que va a brillar nuestra verdad.

    El tiempo no cura todas las heridas...
    Se olvidan o se ven eclipsados por otras nuevas.
    Sin embargo, una respiración común, repentina o voluntaria,
    Y el ritmo de nuestros latidos se fluidificara.

    Así que nos evacuamos, entonces aceptamos,
    Así que creamos de nuevo.
    Si todo esto son unos ciclos,
    Junto con tu, el próximo me deseo.

    En cuanto a los pilares de la vida... ya que son, tanto están,
    Los que nunca se faltan.
    A mi familia y amigos, a nuestras futuras amistades,
    Propongo un brindis eterno!

    Beloved Ones - "Holy Spirit - White Pigeon" by Josef K.

    Part One- Eden

    A cherub fell from the sky,
    with wings galore and angelic eyes,
    he was so peaceful, the divine thing, he,
    little did I know he came to help me!

    Let all of history be erased,
    and cease to exist in our minds weak,
    let only HE the Holy one be praised,
    let all war stop, let it end with this shriek!!

    But as it is with all things great,
    that cherub fell for the passion,
    so the utopia of clouds and cherries has to wait,
    because the models are here for their fashion!

    Part Two - Decadence

    Wrapped in soft clothing,
    they jump up and down the stage,
    for I see the others loathing,
    and myself blistering with rage!

    Cars, guns, rockets and more!
    Wind, earth, fire and water!
    Nature and Material galore!
    Atom, computer, airplane and motor!

    Cries and curses heard from below!
    Is there no end to this malevolent sorrow?
    Will someone, anyone drop us hope?
    Drop us a line in this slippery slope?

    Part three - Salvation

    So I awaken! With mother dear next to me!
    Oh great are the skies that it was only a dream!
    A dream so vicious my eyes bled,
    Thank the Lord I am in my bed!

    With the love of my family, here again,
    I am so glad it was not the end!
    But I wonder who the cherub was?
    Who is he, and what he does?

    Does he have a family to love him and care?
    Does he have someone to help him, to share?
    Is there, oh Father help for that man?
    Has he fallen forever in the hellish den?
