My Love

by One Song

In the midst of so many passionately fought battles
We must not be distracted, nor forget our love.

Today, we commemorate the execution of a saint,
St. Valentine, who was amongst the most virtuous.
Often, it seems, valiant warriors are martyred
Unjustly defending a good cause.

Saints, unlike angels, do not live forever,
However, we are reminded of them for an eternity.
Angels, the most loyal servants of God,
Are not so without quarrel amongst them.

As true love is unworthy without conflict
And nothing worthwhile exists without love.
My love: You are all that the righteous desire
Laying my sword down here to rest for a while…

As I kneel you before you, my divine Lady
I must ask for your forgiveness
For all the times that I was neglectful of our love.

During this special day, I am reminded of you
I could not keep fighting so fiercely without my love.
As life without you would serve no purpose
I vow to cherish you always, and love you forever.

I must lead you safely through this obscure path
Beyond this dark forest where we find ourselves dwelling.
Yet, I feel hopeful as I sense that:
Clear days, green pastures are soon to come.

Your light is brighter than any celestial star
Like the moon, kindly gazing upon the heavens.
With such divine grace you must speak to God,
For he has chosen to answer your prayers.

An angel was chosen and dispatched from the heavens.
In haste, I am here now, and forever shall remain!
My apologies, for I could not be with you sooner,
Wishing you a very happy Valentine’s Day.

My Love by One Song
My Love – by One Song

[I was a little surprised to learn One Song is a poet, but after discussing matters with one of Second Life's most notorious early players it all started to make sense - pixeleen mistral]

One Song (circa 2004)

pixeleen mistral: this seems out of character for you

One Song: you gotta remember the media only covered 1 facet of One Song

Just the white suit wearing business man who wasn’t affraid to take miscreants down But the romantic side of One Song wasn’t really covered :P But was well known specially amongst One Song’s females

I don’t know Pixeleen never believe in the media, even alternative media… Most of the things I did in the past was all for a very good reason.. and they were all righteous Although by reading all the One Song stories on the Herald, all these things might not be so obvious – unless you knew the character personally

I don’t know if you ever noticed this… but when One Song left the public SL scene, you got vampires in SL, nekos, static dead like primed babies… Everything went downhill from the One Song era not that vampires and nekos are terrible 

Just the level and type of interaction got seriously depricated I don’t remember if you were around much in the One Song era. But I kept the whole crowd in good order.

I served the purpose of an almost "authoritarian" type of leader… not that I believe in Authoritarian societies… although saying that judging from how everything has gone down hill for the most part. I think One Song was the best thing that could of happened in SL’s early days.

    Referring to oneself in the third person is usually awkward, but this guy adds grammar, spelling and syntax errors to augment that awkward trope.

    “We need some MachineCode to apply a little more epic to the Ess Ells.” …I’ll get right on that.

    So I guess with him as the big bad internet tough guy cleaning up SL, miscrements like me would have been crowed out like the static dead and the vampiric nekos or whatever he said.

    Haha, funny man MachineCode! I’ve pointed out the typos I had made on that fragment of text to the editor hours before you had on your comment, sorry to disappoint you.
    Sadly enough, I think they were busy and didn’t have time to clean it up, or left them on purpose to mock me – who knows.
    The whole fragment block was typed out of a tiny goggle chat section, without the knowledge it would be turned into a mini-interview, or that I would be quoted upon.
    I hope yourself and the “grammar police” can accept my sincere apologies for any syntactical, grammatical, and spelling errors that you may find at that fragment of text as they were hard to avoid at the time. I was not aware my rushed chat session would have been turned into a mini-interview scenario.

    Still, I hope you liked the poem as you appeared conveniently careful to avoid any comments towards it!

    didn’t you write this to me back when we were doing sl by snail mail and had to wait 4 days to see if we arrived at some destination we were aiming for?

    Love the poem! Love the poem! Love the poem!

    (why three times ? cause when I tried to post it once, I got an error message saying “your comment is too short, go back and try again!”)

    Hey Marilyn, how do you do?

    It’s been a while since I’ve last heard from you I hope you that you’re keeping well!

    I’m afraid I don’t recall such event, although this may be entirely my fault.

    Speaking in SL terms I must be a very old grandpa, so perhaps my memory fails me.

    Happy belated Valentine’s Day to you my dear! :)

    i don’t know how many are around still from the time of your arrival. i am not really still around, i visit this blog now and then, but don’t remember the last time i was in sl.
    it was a joke about you sending me that poem. actually we were more adversaries than friends, but you were a very good adversary.
    some of the stuff we did back then was pretty freaking funny. in a strange way, (and how else could u do things?) you became much larger than i ever did.
    happy belated valentines day back at ya.

    I never considered you an adversary Marilyn, rather more like a confused friend. The only reason you didn’t become bigger in the sex industry back then is because you had no will to do so. I think you were very content with your small better manageable loyal dancers. If anything I always felt you were way better at managing those types of women than I ever was. Thank you for your comments.

    Scab and matter custard,
    Snot and bogey pie,
    Dead dogs giblets,
    Green cats eyes,
    Spread it on bread,
    Spread it on think,
    Wash it all down with a cup of cold sick!

    Peotry sucks. Come on, One Song, there is more fun to be had than this in SL!

    “There’s a girl in 3C,
    with a wart on her knee,
    and a pimple on her behind.
    I gave her 2p,
    and she showed it to me.
    Don’t you think that was awefully kind?”

    maybe because i never reffered to them as, “those types of women.”

    You missed the rest of my post, clearly, because I was calling you a narcissist or egotistical or something like that. You know, like virtues and stuff that an egoist would definitely misinterpret.

    I didn’t read your poem last time, but I think “hyperbole” and “reflects your personality” would be good critiques for a formal review.

    MachineCode: Clearly appears to be an anonymous internet handle as it does not relate to an individual in either Real Life or Second Life.

    Your conversational tone also indicates that you are someone who is making a futile attempt to instigate some form of conflict in order to make some sort of name for yourself. How pathetic and convenient that you would choose One Song as your target – considering the notoriety level that he possesses.

    I always found that such individuals who choose to hide behind such handles with such feeble intentions tend to be completely spineless and always full of useless destructive opinion. In fact, I believe there is a better and common term for that circulating the internet: “A TROLL”.

    You will have to forgive me you scrawny little troll for I could not care less about anything you ever say. Not now, not ever, nor for me to ever reply to any of your further comments.

    I eat my peas with honey.
    I’ve done it all my life.
    It makes the peas taste funny but,
    It keeps them on the knife.

    When I came to Second Life
    I couldn’t find myself a wife
    So then I thought I’d try and scare ‘em
    Went to Gor and got a harem.

    I think One Song was the best thing that could of happened in SL’s early days.

    I survived the vogon poetry, but this piece of smug self-satisfaction makes me surrender.

    It would be great if somebody like One Song’s typist passed his account off to a subordinate when leaving SL, to be handed off to another subordinate later on, and so forth, like how the name ‘dread pirate Roberts’ got passed around in The Princess Bride.

    Very nice poem indeed One Song…..

    You were truly a legend for Second Life from what I have read in articles. Why decide to come out and release a poem after so many years? Maybe the flames in which burned for this person you write about turned to dismay so you decided to make something unique to her public for all………………………….
