Kitty Kitty

Kitty Kitty where are you,
I've looked up and down our home!
You're not in your favorite shoe
and you can't fit in that hole.

Kitty Kitty, don't you know
I'm carrying your favorite food.
Come here and I'm sure you'll
be more pleased than--

Ah! Ow! What are--
What did my toe do to you?!

Oh Father, Lord, I praise You in this storm.
The sun will rise again. Father, help me to begin.
This dark is noisy, full of fear and doubt.
Distrust. Hurt. All the soundless pain.
Father, please, bring us back again!

You know this storm upon us.
Saw it before it began.
Shield us with your mercy.
This can't be the very end?

Your choices are always right. Real. Just.
I beg the strength. In You I trust.
I will praise You in this storm.

Naareil's Plight

It is far too silent
too much is watching.
Not a one is here;
still no time for stopping.

Hours continue in a daze.
My thoughts spin as I walk.
Why am I in this cursed maze?
It--I should have Seen!

Have never been so afraid--
lost and cannot find my way...
it is so hot in this place!
Water drips off my face...

I wish I were back in snow,
back at home with the frost.
Yes, in that lovely cold.
Wet, I cannot really fly!

I am completely soaked,
too much like a wet cat;
my mind is getting hazy.
Sight is blurry...I want out!

Nothing to Lose

Caught, falling down that endless plain
how could one say they've not changed?
Everything, everywhere needs Your touch.

Father, please repair these broken hearts
though we're the ones who tore them apart.
All of these keys are returned to You.

So there's nothing to lose.
We've all got to choose.

What Good?

What good is a candle
when you really need flame?
And what good is a glass
when you really need rain?

What good is a storm
when you wish for a breeze?
What good is the pain
when all you want is ease?

What good is the thread
when rope is what you need?
What good is the hole?
The ground should be under your feet.

What good is a memory
when all they do is hurt?
What good is hiding
when life just will not wait?

Down in Flames

Everyone dreams in this small ol' town,
one settled at the bottom of the mount.
I can only look down through this path
counting the days until it's last...
They swear I'm about crazy;
keep bringing gifts to "calm" me.
I can't do anything here...

Warnings I do always give
before the mount blows again.
There's nothing I can do if they ignore
the ground rumbling under their home.
A thief? Sure, I won't deny.
But I've never liked claiming a life!
Yet again, I whisper a small prayer...

I can't know or care where this path leads,
y'learn to ignore this after an age.
At the end of the day, this volcano
will take back what it's owed.
All that's allowed and is right?
My volcano will destroy by tonight.

Testing by Fire

Please love, just wait for me.
I'll get this spell loose, torn by the seam!
...By the Fires, I pray that I won't be late.
Asking you to come here was a terrible mistake.
Please, please keep fighting what you see,
living without you is a curse I don't want to repeat!

The Mount's infernos, what must I do?!
To lose you now?! It--it's too soon!
Remember, we were going to tease him,
you know, Blsi, he bet me to ten?
I've already lost once, please,
don't do it again...use the wind's strength!

There's one who I have asked, h-he said he'd
check and see. One he knows may know this weave.
Your not being by my side has weakened me...
my flames even feel cold--MY flames! Please..!
Whoever spat this one out is going to pay!!
I swear this! And swear to you Mount Telei's flames!

...Why. Why is it only now that I can say
how much you mean to me, and not to your face?
Y-you must know! You have to! Hells, I bound with you!
Jivap, don't give up, please hold strong,
I don't want to have to sing your final song.
I'm going to get you out of this, give me time
to work with it. Please, my love, I...

If you wake up with this work being done
and find this letter, let it be known.
I may hate the flight, I may be odd.
But all I have to give to you is my love...
