486 (who?)

She waits for him
at the gates that stood when even the world crumbled
She sighs
knowing that her own name will soon be forgotten

Where once she carried the weight of the world
now her strength is but the tiniest whisper
A single spark, left to crackle amongst the shades
until all is lost in the endless folds of time

It's getting colder
though she still continues to stand by the gates
She is getting older
and thus her memories must fade...

Angels gather to watch her in these final moments
and they bow their heads as a sign of respect
For even now, as the life leaves her body
Still she continues to wait...

-Chen Yuan Wen, 27th July 2012
Author's Comment:

Now that I have returned from the depths of Hell, I need a little bit of a warm up before I'm ready to start posting epics. I decided to go with some fairly standard fare tonight.

You all know what to do if you enjoyed it :3


Other Poems By Me:
Arguing With A Mirror Arguing With A Mirror:

Ah greetings mister Chen, to what do I owe this dubious pleasure?

Don't play around with me man, you know I'm outta material...

Oh? So it would seem that our mighty street thug has finally come crashing down
Have you come to apologise for putting me aside?
Perhaps you finally realised how important I am for creativity

Say whatever you want pal, but I need some juice and I need it now!

And what makes you think I'll help you this time?
If you recall correctly Chen, was it not you who pushed me out?
As far as I remember, you said you wanted to be "real"
You said that my "expertise" was not currently needed

Shot to Hell Shot to Hell:

You know, I should probably be angry about all this
I mean, I am dead after all...
Still, I suppose there could be worse things in life

Of course, it did hurt you know; when you shot me
Oh my god! I thought I've just been shot!
The bleeding wasn't the worst part of the ordeal though
Instead, the worst part of entire situation was the feeling of slowly dying
the feeling of losing the life inside your body...

Some might say that it feels like being buried in a blizzard
but for me, it was more like jumping head first into an icy sea
I couldn't move and I couldn't speak...
all I could do was to simply hang there limp and
Sudden Cruelty Sudden Cruelty:

He is a God, or so he believes
He judges others and puts them into stereotypes
Asian? No life! Hispanic? Brainless!

He thinks he has control over his world
A delusion which he has never been able to break
Me? I'm better than them, I'm smarter...

He sits alone in his room, ignoring the emptiness
He sits in front of his computer and passes judgement
Lol, you're wrong. You're stupid. Everything is stupid!

He laughs and smiles at his own cruelty;
He feels powerful and most certainly superior to all
But in the end, it's just a fantasy isn't it?

He curls up in his bed, thinking about tomorrow
Here, he's a king, but out

Ya know, he could have told her he wasn't coming back. But he knew that it was better to wither with hope than to vanish in sorrow. In the end he wouldn't have her cry. She died believing he never gave up on her and I'm assuming he didn't. If I was locked away from someone I loved and she died in my absence, I would endure knowing that even in death she knew I wouldn't give up on her. Hope is a beautiful thing isn't it? So is captain Chen's poem by the same name if I may say so myself. Tip of the hat to you Chen, keep it up!

Actually, he was trapped in a different hell and tortured for all was their twin fates to forever be lovers...with a lot more torture and screaming. She wasn't fated to go to hell though, she chose to wait there for him. He was stuck in hell and could never get out. So she withered away .___. Twas very sad indeed
