Final Halo




















Finally I conclude the series of Alter Halo with this last piece of poem. I hope this last sequel suffices a satisfactory conclusion to the whole series.



Evan:
I think I love you. In fact I know that I have always loved you. And I'm not sorry for that.
Ariel: You fake bastard. I always thought you to be my friend.


Smiling through a piece of glass
Our fates keep begging today
The innocence of my kindergarten class
Has turned into a human clay
The day we made pain our best friend
Our lives started to decay
I'll keep waiting till the end
I'll keep watching in dismay
The snake tightly holds this red canvas
The angel keeps looking for ways
To whisper every single word of faith
But you can never hear it say

You are lost in complication
Your life is just as fake
You chase your dreams with pretension
You can never stop for anybody's sake
You find solace in those arms
That just seeks your soul for the day
Your ego has caused you more harm
Than my silent tears flowing in your way
Will you ever stop for once
And look back at the end of the road
Those arms will leave you when its done
You will have that pain bestowed

I was always a worthless lover
I have nothing much to confess
I'll always be your cover
Oneday I'll die without a trace
That circle of destiny has no start
Will I ever find some rest
Your indifference has raped my heart
Theres a hollow circle in my chest
I'm feeding through your hate
I watch the funeral of our love
Dont you know we are soul mates
We had a past in the skies above

Sometimes I put up a smile
Occasionally force my lips too wide
I have faked my life all this while
I died by the day, lived by the night
Sometimes I hold a picture of you
And glance through every pixel of it
And I wonder what happened if you knew
That my conscience was always clean and neat
Sometimes I wake up in scream
And scratch these walls with my fingers
Life is never as it seems
Beside my dreams a constant pain lingers

These days I fear to hope
But for you I always pray from the heart
Doesnt matter with whom you elope
I'm your end no matter wherever you start :)


Evan: I love you. I need you. I'll do anything to keep you happy and out of harm's away forever.
Ariel: You see thats your problem. There are three 'I's in that pathetic confession of yours and not single 'we'. Whatever , I don't care .

The catchy rhyme scheme is commendable.

The innocence of my kindergarten class
Has turned into a human clay

Everyone can possibly relate to this.

Your ego has caused you more harm
Than my silent tears flowing in your way

Deep. So very deep.

That circle of destiny has no start
Will I ever find some rest
Your indifference has raped my heart
Theres a hollow circle in my chest

Hmm that is *some* new way of depiction. I cannot refrain myself from using the word *maestro* ;)

I died by the day, lived by the night

So very profound

Sometimes I hold a picture of you
And glance through every pixel of it

Ha ha man that was another masterstroke!

Doesnt matter with whom you elope
I'm your end no matter wherever you start :)

//Sometimes I put up a smile
Occasionally force my lips too wide
I have faked my life all this while
I died by the day, lived by the night// - this was a phase some time back i thought i would succumb to before night fall...strange na..that never happens...coz the Spirit is the most resilient :)
