"Let them hate, so long as they fear me" ~Colligula

The world engulfs my flame and douses out my being
With never ending rain, going out as far as I’m seeing
I’m fleeing from this pain, and I can't get away
I can’t find a way to make it all okay,

Everyone stops to say
that the world isn't after me
but it may be

Lay my fears to rest as the rest of the best
See me as a mess,
I can’t be blessed because this quest
My quest, the mission of my life is vexed and
So depressed, I’m losing the pounding in my chest

I can’t move forward tied to a post
Making the most of this life, marosed
Just a ghost of what I used to be
Miles from the coast, lost at sea
Losing hope in my way of life
Losing strength in this painful strife
I can't believe that she’d leave
Like the tree dying because the leafs
Left him lonely in the summer
Forever forgotten, fever of a new comer
Naive and lost with nothing to gain
Nothing to look forward to ever again
Except pain, a world of unending darkness
No colors to see, no music to harken
It’s darkened made solid and sharpened
To pierce my heart and pull me to the ground
Trying to stand with the little strength found
I’m bound, too wary to care,

Do I give up? Do I dare?

Just close my eyes and step inside
The unfathomable phantom hold
That holds me tight and ends my sight
No longer a fight, just a current of no light
That lets me linger between worlds and thought
I’m here, I’m caught, nothing to fear, I rot
I whither to the nothingness that I was meant to be
The only destiny truly meant for me
I was the tree, but I burned and turned
To nothing more than what I’ve earned
And it’s not about what I yearned to be
What I learned to be,
I’m what people need,
Someone with dreams, someone who seems
Like a bright light in the agonizing torment
Who can jump start their heavenly ascent
To a higher plane of peace and understanding
It’s demanding and I can’t keep standing
On this hill from which I choose to walk away

Okay, the writing quality and craftsmanship is unreal, here and in Part II. I want to say you keep writing about the same thing, but... it gets better and stronger and raw-er and more and more heart-pounding with every piece!!! You may hate me for this, but thank you to that girl: she started something that is unlike anything else I have ever read, and to her I will be forever grateful. Also, if the Author's Note in Part II was at all a dig at my recent silence on your incredible-ness, I'm sorry! AP tests suck the life out of me....
