This poem is the very first one that I have ever made. It is based on the point of view of Zavier Cross, the main character of a story I am developing in both game, and novel form. Originally named One Last Time.

I walk on through this war-torn world, searching for you,

I soar throughout the sky, with hopes of seeing you,

I sail through the seas, looking for a mere glimpse of you,

Alas at night I can feel this pain, building up inside of me,

I struggle through this torture, day after day,

Never to realize that it may all be in vain.

 

When I think of my past, I feel absolute malice,

The pain others wrought upon me never left my tormented mind,

I sought true safety, a sanctuary from all life,

Yet in my misery, I saw you in a different light,



You were the one who spared me from that agony,

You were the one who brought me joy,

You were the one whom I gave my promise,

And yet you were the one who had left me to wallow in past torment.

 

Forever more, I shall walk alone,

Dreaming my pathetic dreams,

Cherishing my ancient memories,

And remembering my promise.

 

As the wildlife dies, forever I walk on,

As the liquids of life fade, forever I drift on,

As humananity pass on with death, forever I live on,

As the world brims with chaos, forever I look on,

As the universe ceases to exist, forever I continue on,

As the winged angels rejoice, forever I weep in sorrow,

As the horned demons wail out in pain, forever I share their pain,

As the great armies of heaven and hell collide, forever I strive forward,

Forever in this miserable state, I walk on,



Forever more, I shall walk alone,

Dreaming my pathetic dreams,

Cherishing my ancient memories,

And remembering my promise.



I walk on to fulfill that promise,

The promise to be with you one last time.
