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

Loveless - Act I
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

Loveless - Act II
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

Loveless - Act III
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

Loveless - Act IV
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.

Loveless - Act V -Made by Genesis-
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

I'm not sure if it's just me, but does Loveless sound like a prophecy when you read it?

This is nice :D I wrote this down myself a couple years ago when I first played the game! I couldn't resist! :XD:

Thanks so much! This will come in VERY handy for writing fanfiction!

Throughout the game, I actually paused at the parts when Genesis was reciting it and wrote it all down lol. So I have this somewhere ^_^

I never thought that I'll love a poem sooo much! <3<3<3<3
It's Epic. :'**
And Crisis Core is epic too. <3
---> Best Game ever.

This...Is....So..... EPIC!!! ^_^

You have one warring: "My friend, do you fly away now?"
It will be: "My friend, did you fly away now?"

But it's really good work :)

So after playing the game about 50 times, I have this whole thing memorized. I walk around the house quoting it all day and my siblings all yell at me to shut up :D lol It's hilarious!!

Thank you for posting this. I love these acts.

It's really great poem.
I learned it 1 year ago x)
Can you tell me, is it true that LOVELESS is an ancient English poem? Or i'm wrong?
Zaptrap105 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2011

I :heart: this poem =)

My favourite.
And Crisis Core rocks !! =D
EvanesenceSoul Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I remember when I started thinking about Loveless when Genesis restated the acts wondering what kind of story or mean these parts mean. Sometimes I still wonder. I think I need to replay Crisis Core :)

I just started playing the game a few days ago.. And I just love the quotes from the "loveless" play that Genesis seems to always go on about :)
Thanks for posting~

Square left little to the imagination with this poem. In the near end of the game they explain it verse by verse, leaving no room for interpretation. A waste...
Cactuar333 Featured By Owner May 20, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
when he died, he said "even if the morrow is barren of promises, nothing shall forestall my return...", right?
M65P3 Featured By Owner May 25, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
He did and he didn't die either. If you've seen the end of Dirge of Cerbuers he's seen there with the body of Weiss. That was the last act said before the end of the game.
Cactuar333 Featured By Owner May 25, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
i never finished DoC because i didn't really like it...
M65P3 Featured By Owner May 25, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh...Well you can see the cutscene at YouTube.
Cactuar333 Featured By Owner May 26, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
true, true...
LordAlzenDL Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2012
Ha had a PS2 but i never finished DoC soo...
Did genesis died at it. Cause i saw the ending of CC and i know he didnt die at it.
Cactuar333 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, Genesis dies.
vitaminanime Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2010
not bad by any chance how long ago before the game did these events happen?
Erix19 Featured By Owner May 2, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
To answer your question, Crisis Core took place about seven years prior to the original VII. I'd wager a guess that Crisis Core covers a two year period since the Nibelheim Incident was five years before VII.
vitaminanime Featured By Owner May 16, 2010
no i'm talking about the events of LOVELESS
Erix19 Featured By Owner May 16, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
According to Hojo, the LOVELESS epic is pretty ancient. It's not even part of the VII storyline.
vitaminanime Featured By Owner May 16, 2010
i was wondering because i need to know an exact number of years because i'm writing a crossover fanfic where the events of Fire Emblem take place long before the events of Final Fantasy, yet i need to know an exact number of years so i can give the OC who took part in the events of Fire emblem and exact age.

Hojo, yuk. if i had my way with him he'd be wearing an iron lung...
Erix19 Featured By Owner May 16, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Well, LOVELESS was only a plot device for Crisis Core so there is no set time for it. You may just have to go backwards from Final Fantasy and go from there.

As for Hojo, I'd have a Hojo smack fest every year, using him as a pinata.
vitaminanime Featured By Owner May 17, 2010
thanks so i could make her as old as i wanted? i was thinking between 3,000 years and 10,000 years

*clap* lol THAT IS BLOODY FING RICH! but not painful enough. and btw, could i trouble you to please get me a sharp knife, some fava beans, and a nice chianti? i'm having hojo for dinner tonight...
Erix19 Featured By Owner May 17, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Pretty much. Literary devices like LOVELESS are pretty much free reign.

*hands over Pyramid Head's giant knife, fava beans, and chianti* No mere carving knife for Hojo. Must use the Executioner of Silent Hill's knife. >:D

I've been trying to find "LOVELESS". Is this seriously it? (i know the prologue is) Yer brilliant!
shadow0501 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2009
loveless is awesome but for some reason whenever i read the other loveless that talks about the three warriors i always think that the prisoner could be zack since it talks about meeting a lover leaving promising to meeting again but i really think thats its genesis,angeal,and sephiroth
