– Ponies with Ayreon

[Click here for the accompanying song]

Welcome Home

Bathing in prismatic light
Awaking free at last
Able to move on my own, I'm back in control

Only blurred memories left
Glimpses of the past
In my dreams I still walk the surface of Moon

I saw my home
From where I stood
What once was my home
From my thousand-year room
Isolated on the Moon
Locked within the abyss of time…

A voice echoed in my mind
A shadow reflecting life
Resentful thoughts enslaved my soul, my heart

How did it wish to break free
Torment the world once seen
How did I wish it to leave my soul, my heart

Long years alone
Friendless and cold
Alone with my thoughts
One tormenting soul
While my spirit roamed the Moon
Locked within the abyss of time…

So warm it feels to walk on earth
So much it heals to see living world
So much it calms to meet loved ones
So comforting it's to hear those words:
"Welcome home."

Free to return to land
But home is left behind
My yesterday's gone, olden history

Is this my home
It's all unknown
Everything is changed
None left of my own
Everything I knew and loved
Lost in the abyss of time…

Through my banishment's centuries
Gone the world of my memories
From the past I must step forward
Will I learn to love my new home…


Angsty Luna is best pony. And yeah, I'm more or less 12 months too late to write angsty Luna stuff, but what ya gonna do?

Actually one of the older poems I've worked on, "Welcome Home" was originally based on Leningrad Cowboys' rock ballad "Leningrad" [link] However, after some time I kinda dismissed it due to starting out MLS, and because the song was already distressingly similar to what I aimed to write, making it rather forced process to work with.

After the Sequel was finished, I got inspired to rewrite it based on one of my favorite songs of all time, Ayreon's "My House on Mars". Psychedelic progressive space rock may not be the first genre to imagine with ponies, but it has incredible melancholic atmosphere I yearned for this.

Edit 400 views in less than 12 hours? Unbelievable, people, unbelievable! :heart:
Edit2 Aaand now it's one of my most faved watched popular works so far. Thank you everybody, from the heaven of my heart.

My Little Pony (c) :iconhasbroplz:
"My House on Mars" (c) Ayreon, written by Arjen Anthony Lucassen and Johan Edlund. From the album “The Universal Migrator: The Dream Sequencer”
Song is used as a soundtrack for the lyrical content in terms of tribute, homage, parody and ponies.
