    why am i here?..
    what purpose does my existence serve in the grand scheme of things?..
    or for that, in any scheme of things?
    i dont want to move the earth off its axis.. quite the opposite.. would be more than happy just living..
    i am not living.. i am just existing..
    i just am..
    unlike the little pebble on a shore, i feel...
    but again, just like that chip of stone, the waves pound me relentlessly.. again and again.. grinding me down with every blow..
    will i crumble?.. will i fade away?.. will i cease to be?..
    i certainly hope so...

    but right now..

    Im frozen.

    The castle of ice i live in
    is beautiful, cold, unfeeling.
    The barriers around my heart
    are delicate, strong, unyielding...

    Banished myself to solitude,
    i do not live but exist..
    like dew drops on a lily which
    an ice maiden has kissed.

    What warmth can i seek here, what love,
    when warmth is my world's bane?..
    These silent walls speak so loud,
    against any hope, profane..

    Extinguished thus in the dark i am,
    probably will be forevermore,
    Till i melt away into an ocean of sorrow,
    but am frozen by the lonely shore...
