That is where I hope to fly
For you have gone where I cannot reach
A place only dreams can breach
But I know we will meet again
Because the end is never permanent
When we fall, we flyWe're spiraling down
Baby don't sell me out
Use the time that we've got
And we'll live it up loud
Heart on the line
Just one breath 'til you're mine
Hand in hand down we fall
Through this moment in time
Can't say it was wrong
Won't say it was right
But I know we need this
So let's light up the night
You're the oil to my fire
Heart burning in my name
And still you lift me higher
I'll try to do the same
So yeah we're spiraling down
We're both burning out
Flames turning to ashes
But burning sunlight as we drown
We begin anew once moreFlip over the page - a new story begins
A blank book awaits the ink of your life to trail markings down its binding
Winding your way across new parchment
We move slowly
One page at a time
Until the back cover closes on us
And the force of your life - that powerful ink
Your story flings open the covers and spills itself into the next book
Engraving new tales in empty pages once more
As long as there are stories to be told, a series need not end
EscapesAcross this heartland scars do run
That is why exists my dreamscape
Tell me love, do I burn like the sun?
Hold me while the light is fleeting
Across this dreamscape I take flight
Straying my thoughts from reality
Tell me love, am I cold as the night?
Touch me while the dawn is breaking
Between these two I wander lost
Unknown for what I'm truly yearning
Help me love, I'm fading like the stars
Keep me while the world is turning
And we will burnThe words are like fire in my heart and my throat burns as I give them voice.
A solemn apology to a grander time when you, a handsome outsider, called my home interesting.
You left earthquakes in your wake and I promise you they will remain.
Although fate does not have our goals at heart, know that I would defy the universe for you.
How I miss the days when we watched the lights dance just under the void.
Gone are the times where what I called normal had you grinning like a fool and praising the nature of existence.
I know that where you are is far away, yet I also know there is a door waiting for you to find it.
For the first time in so long I am allowed to speak the truth and oh it burns.
Fire is a potent weapon and also a symbol of hope.
To do both for the only place I have ever called home, I set my vocal chords alight.
A solemn apology to grander times long past.
Times never to return.
A thousand “I'm sorry”s to future promises broken.
Goodbyes never given.
OcarinaTell me the days
Show me the nights
Bring me back to when everything was right
You gave me a song
Your melody to keep
A sign that our friendship was ever so deep
It was simpler times
We laughed and we cried
But always together side by side
Now these notes ring hollow
They echo in the empty air
I have to wonder if you are still somewhere out there
The familiar landscape beyond recognition
The world I know has changed
I traverse it with desperate hopes to see you again
The lush forest draws me back
With the faint familiar melody
Yet the only time I call it home is in my memories
Time has taken us apart
And your music is all I have
Within the meadow I take your seat
And play softly your song
on the instrument you gave to me
Full MoonLonely is a hard word to define
Wanting others around?
That being impossible?
Or simply being on your own?
Maybe it's all of the above
But if you've always been alone, does it truly count?
How can you tell the difference if you've never had the opposite?
Darkness can only be defined by lack of light
But if you've never seen the light to begin with...
Apathy is poisonous
That you proved to me and so much more
What was it I said to you that night on the train?
"I'm trusting you to watch my six"
I consider the trust upheld
Though I'm not sure you do
Make no mistake
This fate was chosen of my own free will
After all, apathy may be poison
But so is caring
I know I picked correctly
And next time you see a full moon
Please think of me
But promise you'll smile
Like I should have done more
LiveDo you ever have that feeling?
The urge to just get up and go?
It's not because you hate your home life
It's not because you want to leave this town behind
The feeling comes after you realize that life is short
and you've spent all these seasons inside.
Start the car
It's a summer's eve when you ask your parents for permission
They ask where you want to go and you tell them you aren't sure but you'll be back soon
You try to explain the feeling and they don't quite understand
but they give you the keys anyway
Follow me to anywhere
Bright eyes focus on the road like you were taught
But from your peripheral vision and every single stoplight you feel it
The glow of the stars above you mixed with the aura of the evening air
A warm wind picks up and you turn the car to follow it
City lights pollute the sky
Come with me to a better place
You aren't a wild child
You don't stop the car at bars or parties
You certainly don't entertain the

The melodious voice fades with the end of the song. He doesn't want it to stop but it's how the game works. He hopes she'll play it again.
"YES! I got a perfect!" she exclaims from the living room. He can't see her at this angle because the figurine table is around the corner, but sound travels well in this house.
"All right, now turn it off so we can go." It's the mother.
"Kay, just give me a minute to quit."
Within ten minutes the familiar double-click of the front door locking can be heard. The house is silent for only a moment before there is hustle and bustle from upstairs, and a shout of "Movie night!" He tries not to look disappointed. It was only the other day that his owner moved him downstairs to join her other figu
Static Wind [Chapter 1]It's foggy.
That's not the first thing he notices upon opening his eyes, but it's a prominent factor for his first realization; this isn't the department store. He sits up and replays the scene in his head. The robot had packed way more of a punch than he'd realized, and he'd been off-balance to boot. Amy and Tails had come to the rescue, and bam, they'd been thrown into a shelf of televisions.
Had he hit his head on one? Crashed into it too hard? Got a concussion? It's beginning to seem like that's kind of the only explanation here. This place can't be real. An empty road stretches into the horizon, which is an ominous sky of jagged black and red stripes. He decides to ignore the weird scenery and try to wake himself up. Because really? He has to have passed out. This place is one heck of a wacky dream, but a hero isn't allowed to fall unconscious in the middle of a battle! He's got a city to save!
Well actually the thought of that city brings to mind the department store, and he hope
Live Life, Be BraveSo the morning has once again broken
Into shattered pieces of a brand new day
And I’m trying to avoid asking myself
If I’m here and if I’m feeling okay
You see, yesterday I fractured my mind
Now today I am avoiding the cracks
That pave my path towards recovery
But one day I promise I’ll get back
‘You will get back to where exactly?’
With puzzled faces I hear my friends ask
To a point where I feel I am capable
Of completing simple every day tasks
That each one of you will take for granted
But are the fabric of my sanity
That I will weave into a blanket of hope
To shelter my mind from misery
Now the evening has once again arrived
Bright lights ask if I am here or there
So long as I am where I am loved
My reflection and I don’t really care
Because I know I am stronger than this
I am more than the intrusions my mind craves
A 'no entry' sign now greets them at my door
It’s time to just live life and be brave
SeafoamI think that perhaps I will live life alone
And die silent and soft in my vagabond home
Outlive the people who still know my name
And through my departure, leave earth just the same
I'll leave no one behind me to cry in the night
I'll leave no great sorrow or absence of light
But if I end up leaving someone behind
And I sleep, uninvited in thoughts in your mind
I have no great wisdom to banish your sorrow
No special thoughts for a brighter tomorrow
But please, dear friend, if you find yourself able
Don't strap me down to a cold metal table
Don't paint my face or polish my nails
Or set me up in a box and peer in through the rails
Just wrap me in cotton and rock me to sleep
And lower me into the billowing deep
Don't let me rot in a box in a grave
I want to dissolve into seafoam and waves
Stand UpYou let them hold you down, with fear,
Their cruel words are all you hear,
And you wont speak up, from where you lay,
If you don't stand up, here you'll stay.
Were both survivors, you and I,
But you'll never be free if you don't try,
I know its easier to stay this way,
But you only have this one chance to break away.
Stand up, stand your ground,
Use the voice you just found,
This is all a game you'll no longer play,
Because if you let them win then you will pay.
They can't hold you down forever,
Use your brain, you're much too clever,
To let them walk all over you,
You're stronger than that, you know its true.
Because you're stronger than you've seemed,
And smarter than they've gleamed,
You're better than them by far,
Stand up, show them who you are.
TimeIf time had stood still
before our last goodbye
then we could be together still,
still by each other´s side.
I would tell you all the things,
I´ve longed so much to tell you.
We`d take each other by the hand
our precious love would continue.
They say time is a healer
but time itself won´t tell,
if broken hearts can ever heal,
when missing you is hell.
The time waits for no man,
it races by each day.
The days alone become lonely years
with nothing left to say.
Accept maybe thank you my love,
I was proud, so proud to be your wife.
Thank you for your amazing love,
the way it influenced my life.
Poetry by Suzanne Karbach. 22nd January 2015
Too ColdThe day is long,
the wine has gone...
I’ve nothing left to offer.
And outside there,
are trees stripped bare,
I think, with me, they suffer.
The cosy fire
retains your ire,
It does not warm me through.
The ashes shift,
as did the rift,
that widened as rifts do.
I count the hours
and icy showers.
Outside - chill winds do blow
thin and comfortless.
It’s cold enough for snow.
I wait for night,
to ease my plight,
to pile the blankets on.
But no amount
of blankets now
can warm me since you’ve gone.
MonsterThe light that shined in your eyes for me has been darkened forevermore
My mistakes have done more damage than my words can restore.
I wish that I could rewind time and stop myself from causing you pain
You tried so hard for so long to help me, but I threw it all down the drain.
I let one tear become more important than the millions of smiles you had painted upon my face
I took for granted the heart that you trusted me with, a precious thing that nothing can replace.
So tightly to me, did you once cling
And in return I made you feel like your sacrifices didn't mean a thing.
I hate myself for all that I have done
For destroying the heart that could shine brighter than the sun.
I wrapped my hands around it and squeezed until I felt it breaking
All that we had wanted and worked for, I was forsaking.
Had I not become this monster, I would never have to feel lonely
Both now and then, I have loved and wanted you only.
But I only thought of myself and didn't see you losing your smile
Burn My AshesI wouldn't say I've changed
Simply just rearranged
And in my heart I've moved on
But I gave up on the dawn
If I can help enough to move along
Maybe I’ll find a fitting song
One that shows the joys and the pains
That every day runs through my veins
They gave me meds to help me think
But every day I felt my heart sink
I can’t feel my own desires
Perhaps once more I’ll feel the fires
Rebuild my hope.I think I lost you..
Gone for more than 3 months, and still missing.
You were always there.
You wrapped up my blade before it reached my skin.
You lifted my frown into a smile.
You pumped fresh blood into my no longer beating heart.
The walls were crimson, the floor sapphire.
Hope was nothing, but a last name.
I was laying down on that cyber hospital bed, recovery slow to come.
Then you walked in with a gust of letters.
You knew me when I was of my last name, you know me as I am with my current.
Or do you?
I want to talk to you so bad.
I want to make crazy plans with you again.
I just want your speech in my inbox.
Just to know you're okay..
Just to know.
You dedicated your life to relighting the fires in the dampened eyes.
You dedicated your life to build the walls that have slowly crumbled.
I dedicated my life to become as great as you..
The world is cold.
It's now colder without you.
I just want one letter..
Just to know you're okay.
Just to know that you aren
Don't CrySoak your hands in blood
From my hearts final flood
After all of my pain
At last it can drain
I’m tired of being alone
But my heart has turned to stone
The doors have been sealed
I will never be healed
I know someday I’ll die
But I hope you won’t cry
You never should have cared
My pain should not be shared
It’s mine to carry
And mine to bury
But its hold was too great
I broke loose too late
