Sacred Scriptures Ad#3

Hello, I am a Moderator at Username: Professor Frost
 If you are a writer of lyrics or poetry or rap then come check out the Sacred Scriptures League at the above website address. This is the sort of content that we post in the league. Enjoy.

Prelude: Amber is fossilized tree resin (not sap), which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty. Typically used to retain an object, frequently insects, for extended periods of time. "Nature's Time Capsule"..

 Chapter 1
 A golden gemstone flickers dimly in shade
 Paved the way for me to stalk-
 Walk & talk my way through to your heart
 Part of me wanted to move on but the light still shone
 Lone wolves even find a pack for support & love
 Above that, nothing pretty much
 Such is the life of the introvert with lovestruck vertigo
 Hurt to go away from you, & it took a while
 Smiles displayed happiness so I kept my distance
 Dissonance would spray if my sinful selfishness got to me
 A lot of me had packed these emotions--
 Oceans, with trenches deep
 Seeping lost treasures of glory we once held
 Smelled ripe till' the trails fell stale
 Pale gemstones with latent power
 Devouring time, so let's make up for it by the hour


 Time is devoured, so let's make up for it by the hour
 We're pale gemstones with latent power
 Old trails were ripe, till they turned stale when we smelled
 But seeping lost treasures of glory were what we held
 Irreversible trenches deep, locked away in oceans
 Wide bodies of water in our minds -- called emotions
 My sinful selfishness got to me, a lot of me sprayed dissonance
 Could I ruin your smiles of happiness? I couldn't so, I kept my distance
 It all took a while & it really hurt to go
 Such is the life of the introvert stuck with lovestruck vertigo
 Nothing else lasts, pretty much, that is above
 Even lone wolves like us need a pack of support & love
 With a light like a beacon that still shone for me, it never part
 I wouldn't be lost in the blind dark with ignition of spark
 So, I journeyed down the road to your heart
 The art of how I'd walk & talk,
 Stalk the same roads we once paved
 The golden gemstone gave brightness that stayed
 In the end,
 It was still there flickering dimly in the shade

 Chapter 2
 Memory banks grant thanks to her mind,
 She's harnessed the ability of time's feel
 Captured photos in capsules that bind,
 & camera lens that rewind movies of past
 Reels of yesterday display scenes that heal
 Amber can't find what's real when nothing seems to last
 Define erosion to divine steel,
 When God's hand & her clock clash
 Designed fate is set to reveal
 When life's hourglass sits in seal
 Images of defined future never seem to pass

 Chapter 3
 Amber is the watchmaker,
 Calenders flow so volcanic
 Will the blueprints of misery
 Miss this mechanic?
 She's trudging in isolation,
 Fasting the plight of panic
 Dark times rise as the moon lights,
 Reflecting her becoming manic

 Chapter 4
 Like the intricate details,
 On a slumbering snails' shells
 You'll spin in splendid circles,
 Before time's hard lesson tells,
 Of your existences enigmatic worth,
 And your end's chief eternity
 The last of your breathe is birth,
 When your problems cease in fraternity
