- LOVELESS Prologue -

When the war of the beasts brings about the world’s end
The goddess descends from the sky
Wings of light and dark spread afar
She guides us to bliss, her gift everlasting


Infinite in mystery is the gift of the goddess
We seek it thus, and take it to the sky
Ripples form on the water’s surface
The wandering soul knows no rest


There is no hate, only joy
For you are beloved by the goddess
Hero of the dawn, Healer of worlds

Dreams of the morrow hath the shattered soul
Pride is lost
Wings stripped away, the end is nigh


My friend, do you fly away now?
To a world that abhors you and I?
All that awaits you is a somber morrow
No matter where the winds may blow

My friend, your desire
Is the bringer of life, the gift of the goddess

Even if the morrow is barren of promises
Nothing shall forestall my return


My friend, the fates are cruel
There are no dreams, no honor remains
The arrow has left the bow of the goddess

My soul, corrupted by vengeance
Hath endured torment, to find the end of the journey
In my own salvation
And your eternal slumber

Legend shall speak
Of sacrifice at world’s end
The wind sails over the water’s surface
Quietly, but surely



Even if the morrow is barren of promises
Nothing shall forestall my return
To become the dew that quenches the land
To spare the sands, the seas, the skies
I offer thee this silent sacrifice
This is the poem that Genesis Rhapsodos, a mysterious SOLDIER 1st Class, reads in CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII-. It took me awhile to find all the pieces of the poem that he keeps quoting lines from it. My favorite act in LOVELESS is Act I... That's the prettiest, yet mysterious, act that I cannot help, but repeat over and over myself! :XD: I'm not very sure about Act V... They say that it was missing in the game and that people had to figure out what it meant... ^^;

:star:To Gacket fans who didn't know this!!:star:

:bulletred: Gackt-san does the voice-over and motion capture for Genesis in both CRISIS CORE and in DIRGE OF CERBERUS...

Enjoy and please comment!!

I love Loveless so much.
My favourite act is Act III or Act IV. Can't decide. It's so good though, my god.
I'm cosplaying Genesis. I'll read it all the time.

I love Loveless. I actually used it in a story I was making, but it's probably deleted now, because it was on my old laptop and I forgot the password so my mom had to restore the entire thing :(
Still haven't looked to see if it's still there though, so there's a chance it's still alive!

its odd but i keep repeating the third act aloud because to me the third act is the most important i see in my self that the poem is more then a journey of 3 friends to me its a promise that those friends made i love this poem for such reasons ive played crisis core and my favorite part is when genesis reads aloud loveless ive read this poem aloud to my friends before and i think that it has changed alot about me "there is no hate only joy for you are beloved by the goddess" this verse calms me when i am angry i dont know why but it does i love this poem through and through so you have my thanks for this

I've been looking for this forever! Now I have found it!
devinzo Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2011
The final act isn't heard in crisis core as far i know but i believe it's about the fact Genesis comes back in FF7 or the end of Dirge of Cerberus (i tink)

But anyways, nice done :D

LOL I know the hidden secrets to this poem ;P It's obvious if you take the time to translate it yourself... I might even post up my interp. soon just for the hell of it

there are a great many secrets hidden in the words of the poem my friend to unlock them all is to take mystery from the words and joy from its heart though one secret is known another lies hidden
