Hades and PersephoneThe king of the underworld
The daughter of life
His eyes dark cold and icy
Hers light and airy
Light flickers through
Enhancing her innocence
Darkness surrounds him
Shielding his heart
What happens when these two cross?
The king of death and the daughter of life
Does she wither and wait
to accept her fate
or does she warm his shielded heart?
What happens when these two fall in love?
Can happiness reside where light cannot?
or will it slowly flicker away until it is no more
and give into the darkness around her?
They say even the smallest bit of light
Will shine in the darkness
Until it finally gives in
and flickers away

The word so nearly incomplete
What a remarkable feat
To see the one you love
Ice cold with white feet
A mirror to reflect the tears
Of a love you once found so dear
Remember the time
When the flower met the dust
But the time faded
Ever-so-slowly with the stars
Mystery lies clear beneath the bones
To shed of the love you replaced with fear
But when all grace came, you made yourself fame
And a million light years away
You met her, walking to your grave
A curious being
A curious feeling
Had she not been the presence
You were wishing for?
Taken from the fairy
A tale whispered so murderously

Out of season,
Out of place,
That soft,glowing warmth
Delicate and easily broken
The very harshness
Of oblivion and winter
Lean over that flower,
Frigid eyes lingering
In the warmth
A touch, so close-

Forever there to bring a stop to the cold
Scent mesmerizing, warmth intoxicating
Always wanted, always wished for
Always wished away
Tries to hold on, tries to steal the warmth
Always whisked away by the warmth of Spring
But always there
Wanting what it can't have
Grasping what can't be reached
A weapon in the night
A shield in the light
Always so near
But always destined to be apart

Giggling with glee
Persephone gently pushed Hades away
Ignoring the curious arch of his brow
She slid away from the tree
Following her slowly
She continued to back away from him
And after a moment
She stopped in a clear opening
Once he made it to her
She placed her hands around his neck
And kissed him so passionately
That it seemed as if
It would be the last time she'd see him
Though she knew better
As for Hades
He was happy
For the first time in a while
He finally got what he wanted
Without having to make it happen
Though the kiss struck cold
When the footsteps in the snow
Were lighted by ones of unknown

"Just before darkness hits,"
The words echoed in the forest
The words so graceful
To reassure the lives
Of the ones she cares for dearly
How wrong she was
For that casual gaze
Turned at once into a burning flame
She was never back before the darkness
Not even when they called her name
For the fire surrounded her
Opened into a darkening flame
A crack murdered the pit of nature
And down she fell
Like she was the stone
Thrown down the fall of water
A troubling nature
To be where the underworld lay
At once she was alarmed
What sick joke was this?
She needed to be back
Before the sun fell
At once she searched

So long, Persephone had stayed
In the dark, where the king laid
Distant, distraught, oppressed with the emotions
Leading her to bed
How sad he was to see her
So sad, so stricken mad
He tried so hard
Just for her to love him
Oh how he wished for it to be true
Innocence and beauty
Peace and love
The Goddess was pure
So pure he was not
But still he felt for her
Just as he hoped she'd
Someday felt for him
Someday, she would
And though it took so long
She soon fell for the man
Who wished to only call her his own
And soon the bright spark
Started to return
And eventually, one day

What does it mean?
What is it?
Will it ever happen to me?
All the questions and more run through their mind- since they have been able to think for themselves and distance themselves from the realm of apes, that one eternal question lingers-
What is love?
Such a swift, fleeting, eternal, painful, wondrous thing- it cannot be put into words.
Yet mortals have put it into flesh and blood- Aphrodite and her son Eros.
Ridiculous, I say.
How can such a malicious thing be called love? It is a disgusting mockery.
Then again...I am hypocritical. Once I thought love to be something best

Persephone shook her head. She wouldn't think of that. She would make it. She would.
The thin garment she wore seemed to do nothing to stop the cold from seeping to her very core, but if she concentrated really hard, she could thaw out some of the cold with the envisionment of making it to the edge of the forest, and finally being able to rest at peace.
Without warning, the thought of her mother, and how disappointed she would be, filled Persephone's mind. She shivered, and all warmth was gone from her body in an instant. Her mother
His Outstretched Tentative HandHe hesitated for a second with an outstretched tentative hand. She lay motionless on the ground as if sleeping soundly. Her auburn hair lay around her and the air became colder. He didn’t mean to startle her but now she lay before him, unaware how close he was to her. Her mother had always told her to be careful and be alert while by herself. There was no way her mother would approve if she stumbled upon this scene.His Outstretched Tentative Hand8 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Oh yes, being in the art room, with a pad and a pencil, accompanied by that beautiful golden silence, was absolutly amazing. Well, it was silent, until the door was violently thrown open and the clack of three identical hot pink high heels echoed through the nearly deserted art room.
