THe burning Candle

Updated on November 8, 2009
drifting like the flames of a candle
drifting like the flames of a candle

Your body shakes with the winds as it drives it fangs through your skin

Through the imperfection of your life, one marked with death and sin

The flames lick your body top to bottom making you melt

The life fades from your eyes as pain you have felt

The inferno of what lurks inside makes you shed tears around your heart

They leak all around the scars caused by life right from the start

You hoped you can live a normal life, yet a shortened version you’ve got

You have been drafted into combustion; your desire is just like an inkblot

Yellow and fragile your eyes have turned, grappling with the world up on top

Yelping and thawing with time, losing the grip but the soreness you can’t stop

Fading as moments feed on your flesh like a cadaver

Lost in the ember of the past, a slave forever

Numbness in your solid acidified blood veins

Makes the throbbing plunge upon your skin like rain

A soulless creature lost between the dead and the living

A victim of the treacherous time barely growing, nor existing

Flesh combust to flames as the past haunts

As the little droplet of wax as time proceeds rots

Drafted to live under life’s boot of disgrace

Falling sulking in the dark as the light fades for this race

Choking by the glorious moments of a luminous past

Yet losing hope in good and sanity so fast

Drifting downwards towards the land of doom

As the little biological clock tick-tocks boom

Sounds echoe in the ear making it hard to believe

The calamity that approaches death, hard to perceive

Unable to stop the precipitating of the pain, lost to the nothingness

September promised a new flame of life, yet as you believed in forgiveness

The wind of redemption walked away

and let your hope astray

The pale complexion makes you on of the undead

Constrained by time and frozen by the cold

With nothing to hold one to and your soul outsold

Shadows keep falling and demons keep on descending

Say goodbye, walk to the other side broken for no one is listening

      Well Ultramagnus, i have to say that we all would wish if Muramasa was Zaraki's zan but we all know that the episodes we are watching now are fillers and not originally part of the plot writter by Tite so simply it can't be. I would say that i was a huge fan of the idea of muramasa being Zaraki's zan but i had to cross this hope out after muramasa said he KILLED HIS master!"

      I totally have to say i love kenpatchi even without knowing his zan's name. THe beauty in his character is his huge power regardless to his zan's. He is able to achieve captain level with out even tackling his real power. The QUESTION that many of us await to be answered is :"WHAT happens to zaraki's power if he achieves or becomes able to listen to his zan and use its power. The result would be total brutality and KICK @SS. I hope it is revealed in the coming stories.

      hi uriel. i dont know how to message because your messaging system is blocked i think so ill just send it to you here. ive recently thought of a great idea that noones probably thinking right now. i was gonna write about this topic but im gonna let you write about it so you can benefit from my idea. why dont you write about youre thinking Muramasa as Kenpachi's zanpakto. i think everyone is gonna like it. it makes sense right because kenpachi was gone for a while and the possible reason for that is he was dealing with muramasa.
