Sleipnir's GiftAs frost glistens on a winter's night,An ashen form prances where stars resideThough fear not, darlings, for t'is butDear Sleipnir on his Yule-time ride!Flecks of white dot his charcoal mane,As Father Odin guides.Dashing across land, sea, and airWith his sure eight-legged strides.He comes to all the young ones.He loves them and the treatsLeft for him, our favored stallion,Who joyously whinnies as he eats.Flying high on a starlight sky,Sleipnir, steadfast and swiftVisits us all for each new year,And that, child, is a gift.
Home on the Shivering IslesIf you're feeling wearyIf you're feeling pretty downThere is a place to change that faceAnd turn that frown aroundA place where sad is happyA place where right is wrongA place singing with blinding colorAnd painted in melody and songA place where flaws are usefulThey protect you from your fearsA place where unusual is normalAnd adored by all your peersCreativity is nurturedThe impossible is made realYou are wonderful just as you areAnd have no blemishes to healYou'll find it here on the Isles, dearSo awaken from your dull sorrowsSmile and grin for you're safe withinThe chaos that brings tomorrowsNow if you're lost and lonelyAnd the truth just makes you runRemember what the Madgod said"Cheese for everyone!"
BetrayedToday I found the truthBuried in a casket in my mindI was afraid to open itI was afraid of what I'd findThe words you spoke to meBack when I was youngWhen my cheeks were plump with smilesAnd my hair the color of the sunThose words you spoke to meThat left my heart withered and greyWishing to be someone elseAnd hating myself each dayI loved you endlesslyYou were my idol, my friend, my sisterBut then later I found outYou didn't want me to exist eitherWhen I first played that instrumentThe very same one as youYou told me I was a wretched failureI cried but never hated youOthers said I had a beautiful soundAnd were ripe with jealousyBut I still cannot play to this very dayAnother thing you stole from meWhen we went on that roller coasterAnd you told me I could dieWere you expecting me to laughOr hoping I would cry?You have lied to meMore than I can rememberBut your glares that fill my memoriesBurn like glowing embersI told you all my secretsYou laughed and
Sacrifice to a Mad GodThe madness swells and fills meThe edges of my mind are frayedBut without it I'd be colorless,And of that I am afraidThe chaos that thrashes my sanityA hurricane in my mindBlows away the horrid silenceAnd the truths I wish to hideThe darkness awaits alwaysFor storms, they do not lastAwakening my tears with realitiesI wish never came to passSo take this from me, MadgodTake my perception awaySo I may see your bright vivid colorAnd make it through today...
Nianire's Nightmare - SomberMist swirls around my feet,I can not scream.I can not speak.A voice calls "Are you alright?"But he is out of touch,And out of sight.Coldness creeping upon my skin.Longing for your presence, where inI can find comfort a little longer,Before returning to this world so somber.
