Default Hypocritical Paradox - Asterus' Blag - 07-04-2013, 04:37 AM

Seems like this would be the best place to post this.

So, after realizing my journal was kinda easily lost, and writing on random pages in random notebooks was surprisingly hard to keep organized, I moved all my works to a word doc (now at 90 pages, single spaced, calibri 8pt)

After almost losing the document, I made backups on my two flash drives

After misplacing one for a while, and having problems actually updating the other, I started posting everything online.

So... this happened: [edit: On further reflection, posting the link seems like it's toeing the line of that "no advertising" rule. Link is in my sig.]

It pretty much ensures something will certainly survive, and I'm starved for attention anyway ^.^;

Catching Sparks
The flames of inspiration that burn brightest here
Are often sparked by other flames
The greatest work that drives you forth
May bear another’s name

Ideas can spread across all gaps
And catch upon one’s mind
As long as you bank the fire here
Others will respond in kind

One spark of inspiration lights
A chain of unbound flames
And over time, far past their prime
That glowing light remains

Within the embers of long spent fuel
Sparks still glow warmly here
As long as one has just begun
This flame won’t disappear

I went a little stir-crazy and hit some MAJOR inspiration last week, so these Adaptation lyrics happened:

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
Please tell me where you are
Are you right here, right beside where I stand?
Or are you gone somewhere
Living on in that distant sky?
As I stand here waiting
Standing alone with my own memories
All that I remember is how we used to be

In those days forgotten we all knew how to live our lives as one
Taking each day as another gift under the sun

What we had back then was a time that had no pain
Of all the friends we had, right now only I remain
I see those days as a dream we could have had
Yet somewhere, it broke and now I stand, alone and sad

What we had, what we felt, what I believed in those strange days
What you chose to show me to cut through the haze

I remember how we fought and we were matched as equals on that field
I remember how we both stood our ground there, refusing to yield
You were a challenge, someone who could keep up with my fast pace
Now that I’m alone here there is nothing I have to replace

If I could go back to that day it first began
I’d tell myself to trust everyone. They’re understand
These are the five people who are always by your side
Among each other, there’s nothing to hid

I believe you’re out there living among the clouds up in the sky
Finding a good answer for the question I had asked; “Why?”
Even if I stay here, wrapped up alone within these memories
I believe I’ll find some meaning floating out on the breeze

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
Though prayers won’t reach you,
I keep on sending them out into the sky
I still hope that someday they will find you where cicadas cry

How many times have I found myself ripped to pieces no matter how I prepare?
Has all the hope I once held deep within turned to despair?
I promise that next time I will grow stronger and understand
Because if I could do that, I am sure I can reach for your hand

The opening of this story is given once again
I dance the dance that I’ve been taught the same way I did then
This story connects all the worlds that I’ve been fighting for
So I can’t stop my efforts, I must dance again once more
To reach the end, a place where you can go to find
Some happiness and inner peace of mind

Though there may be limits to how many times I can dance
Still I will protect these precious things if I’m given the chance
For that cause I’ll defy even the Gods to attain my one goal
I swear I won’t wander or forsake this hope in my soul

Though like the summer cicadas my life is now short-lived
My only wish is something simple only you can give
Please stay beside me till the end and let me see your smile
That one image will last for a while

So let us now start once more, go to the place back there
This time we can wish for some ending we can all equally share
At the least our final moments can share something with how this once begun
In that at the end of it we are all here, smiling as one

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
I found I can’t tell you about the wounds lingering in my heart
I can only kneel down before the pain that tears me apart

Two people we once were happened to share the same mind for everything
But we didn’t realize what that same state would surely bring
Two people so different living as one isn’t what we wished for
Echoes of sorrow still divide us forevermore

The heavy weight of that burden that crawled upon our back
Was the sin that caused the bleeding wound you lack
I can’t go back to the past now if I tried
I can’t reach the days when the Higurashi cried

Please show me that smile I saw once in the breeze and sun
I remember thinking that life seemed so fun
I want to keep trying to protect that place that once seemed so warm
I’ll do what I can to change anything before it’s torn
Because we all live here searching for ways to make out own “tomorrow”
We always pursue joy and happiness in all that we know

I simply need the 35 degrees of warmth
That I can feel right here as we walk hand in hand
As long as I have this strength I won’t shed any tears
All I wish for is that you understand

I found I can tell you about the wounds lingering in my heart
I swear I won’t kneel down before the pain that tears me apart
Because as time passes the season fade until they’re long gone
Let’s walk past the pain and find “tomorrow”, a way to move on

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
Although I may believe in all the words I have heard from everyone
I can’t deny I still have my doubts about the truth

As I always know that this faint warmth here will always stay beside me
I’m also aware that there are some things I cannot see
I promised I’d hide tears, bury sorrow as I would move along
So I could say some day that I have learned how to be strong

Please tell me the warmth here in your hands isn’t a lie
I recall that far place where the Higurashi cry
Please call out my name in that warm tone you used back then
My wish is that you won’t ever leave me alone again

I’ve shouted and cried out my wishes to the sky so blue
But I feel that somehow it hasn’t reached you

Though I cannot yet face you I always know you are still here for me
Because I am aware that there are things that I cannot see
Your kindness melts into sunshine that I can sense beside me like a warm friend
Because this stays with me, I know happiness cannot end

There were so many things I once took for granted here
I didn’t notice them until they had disappeared
I hadn’t realized their value until they were gone
I want to always stay with you and sleep in your arms

So when the day comes when you will return and pat me on the head
I feel that on that day I won’t hide tears any longer
Though I am still dreaming of that day you will smile and draw me close
I still can’t wait to show you how I have grown even stronger

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
The steady scent of the coming summer fills the warm breeze anew
My desire is to feel that warm breeze right beside you

Though these moments feel like they truly have no worth, no value for all to see
They are my own treasures, memories precious to me
Let this moment always be enveloped in that soft warm sunlight
And always be sheltered even in our darkest night

Even though those days showed the darker side of me
You always believed in a “me” you couldn’t see
So now it’s my turn to have firm belief in what you do
Even if that’s unforgivable to all that I knew

Please always stay smiling before me where I clearly see
Your faces that stay here in my memories

Please don’t ever cry for things that may allude what you can understand
Don’t be afraid. I will do everything that I can
If sorrows overtake you, I’ll be right here, crying right by your side
Please don’t be scared, here we can find someplace we can hide

The cry of summer call to me as this breeze passes by
The sound of my voice is drowned out when Higurashi cry
Though we shed tears, I feel that they should no change how we live
We have to just move on and learn to forgive

Though cries of the cicadas seem to imply that it is too late
I’ll reach out to you and say there’s no meaning to words like “fate”
Please believe in me, stand up and find what tomorrow has in store
Listen to what I say “You don’t have to cry anymore”

"Trust" and "Kizuna" will probably happen at some point as well.

And this one happened today:

Tobira no Mukou E English Adaptation
Even now we are screaming loudly in the dark

As if to confirm something, you tightly clenched your hand on your heart
If these rules just annoy you, just go and break them all apart
If you considered resting with your ailing legs from all you’ve tread
Just take one more step forward and keep on moving on instead

Even if we were to push through distorted winds
Even if we were to outdistance the pale sky
Even so we would still forge on ahead past you, pass on by

Even now we are both screaming into the dark
Just continuing to pray won’t lead to answers that we need
Exposing your weakness and your wounds for all to see
Won’t begin something anew, we’d only struggle futilely
So let’s break on through, pass forward ahead at full speed

Society’s entangled with more complex problems everyday
If those issues obstruct you, feel free to blow them all away
If you let lies and slander affect who you are within your head
Just let free your desire, move on selfishly instead

Shake your head side-to-side to dislodge confusing noise
Shake free the gazes that look on with apathy
Continue from here to reach the next stage of the path you now see

Even now we are both shouting within the dark
This accelerated speed is something we can never slow
Bind your strength and resolution here within your hands
If you don’t continue to run there won’t be a place to go
So just move on forth, beyond the gates of all you know

Even if the pride within your heart is a mistake put out on display
Even if the ideals you once held crumble and fade away
Even if it all turns to lies and wear you down, and leave you here with no place to hide
I’ll be at your side

Even now we are both shouting out from the dark
It is not through faith alone that you can find all that you seek
Just expose your wounds and weakness for all here to see
Let them see and know the truth within the words you cannot speak
And just break on through and pass the darkness completely

Can you hear use calling to you across the dark?
This accelerated speed determines how we both move on
Bind your purpose and your goal to set your target there
Hold to your heart memories of places that are now long gone
And just pass on through the door that blocks your way now here
Let all obstructions disappear…
