For waters of the dead, this was pretty nice. You know those movies where lovers go by a river and have a big scene about a whole romantic day that they spend frolicking and flirting on the banks, yes well this is probably where they filmed every single one of those.
The grass was long and lush making anyone want to snuggle up close to; the steady stream of a murky purple making that sweet sound of a gentle wee. A romantic's getaway dream.
But picturing me, a sleep deprived misery stricken woman with Daemon, a statue carved by toddler with a constipated glare on this truly romantic scene. Not pretty is it.

My dearest one,
with hair so soft and lips so red,
I must find somewhere for your corpse to rest.
Perhaps by the river, by the filth, where you belong,
how hard you struggled, yet I was too strong.
Aren't you beautiful? Another work of art , your body bruised and cold with absent eyes,
you had eyes as cruel as your life ,and as bitter as your demise.
yet alas no one will miss you, not even I,
and so I bid goodbye.
you were not the first nor the last,
for more bodies shall continue to bloom vast...

The thick woolen cloak obscures my view of Knavesmire. I try to push it back from my eyes without revealing my face to the day lit world. I will not cry today. Some unspoken motive in my heart tells me so and I trust its words. I trust few things; my life has taught me that trust was just a promise made with fickle hearts and well shaded eyes. The seventh day of April in the year of our lord 1739 will bring about justice for the world- that much I am sure of. I know there will be pain as well and after the day's close I know my future will be in the uncertain hands of fate.
The soft thud of boot on grass marks the last sound my friend will

I'd be so damn happy,
You bring a smile to my face,
That won't fade away.
The little things,
That you do,
Stay in my mind,
Whenever I feel,
A little out of touch,
You are there,
To catch me.
And I don't know,
How I could ever thank you,
For this thing you gave me,
I will treasure it forever.
If you give me forever,
I will be by your side,
Whenever you need me.
I know it's still the start,
But it's such a beauty,
Such a wonderful feeling,
When next to you.
And I'm not planning,
On letting it go,
Because you are all I wished for,
All I wanted and needed.

"August, she's having the dream."
Those words greeted him like cold water in his face. Ice froze his veins over as a withering sigh came from his lips.
He could almost picture Odette's worried face as he hung up the phone, his hand shaking as he leaned heavily on his cane. Shuffling towards his study, leaning to his left to balance himself out, August Savage moved into his bedroom, which was very dark and cave like. However his eyes were still as sharp as an eagle's, he didn't need anything but the low light that was coming in from outside the bedroom to see be as he shuffled around the bed and came to his desk on the far side

There was only dark, I didn't know where to go.
My demons were haunting my mind, they were screaming out your name.
I wanted to escape this hell, but there was nowhere to run...
How could I free myself from this nightmare?
If there was a sparkle of hope I could survive.
But no, I was left alone to face this cruelty.
You weren't here to pull me from my misery.
How could you let me die? Why haven't you ever cared?
Was I so bad to deserve this

"What do you want with me? Where is the child that was with me? What have you done to the family who lays here? Answer me," spat Katrina.
With a laugh that sounded like a loud sinister echo, the decomposing woman responded, "It is none of your business young one. It is our concern and no one else's. They add to our own collective power in the netherworld. Soon we will be able to break free of our bo

God, I hope I'm doing this right
I was never really one for praying
God, Please look at me in my eyes
I'm sorry, I'm just so sorry for everything
Even though I'm just another one of your creations
I wonder why I was born surrounded by destruction
I know nothing of your pity
But I still want to try and believe in thee
I crumble down to my knees
And I beg of you, please
Destroy every nightmare that I have ever slept
Break and shatter every mirror in existence
So I don't have to dream of what I've become to be
So I don't have to see what has finally become of me

They say that with your tattered words that you shall protect me. In this land of freedom shouldn't I be able to speak for myself? I sit here in silent prayer a hope for this lost nation that in the final hour the people shall have their say. I need not quote the constitution for the cursed pen that was driven by that accursed hand that wrote you knew of it already. Since when does freedom mean our every move is controled and every thought silenced. To arms my brothers to arms my sisters and fight against this injustice. For when the founding fathers spoke of free speech they meant it not for the privilaged few. They meant it for

'Don't go towards the light.'
It's amusing to consider how mankind always attempts a grasp at the unknown, pointlessly peddling their theories on one another in a endless struggle to understand what, simply put, cannot be understood. Perhaps we should consider that the mind is not yet capable of comprehending the concept of 'undefined,' just as it cannot truly grasp the idea of infinity or true nothingness
Regardless, the way we go about it, you would think there was a bright silver path waiting for us on the other side. That when our brush with death becomes more than a passing touch there must be

I despise what you do to me, and how you rip my heart apart piece by piece.
Sitting there, you watch me bleed eternally ,and yet I keep coming back for more. I feel the pain at my very core.
Is it the nostalgia, loneliness or your embrace I crave? Like poison, you slowly kill me from the inside out little by little. Is this what a familar taste of poison is? I've cried countless tears in your name and sake for what seems like an eternity. Wallowing in Agony and self-pity I continue to call out for you. Why is it that I keep coming back for more?
Someone please help me to let it all go, and pick of the shattered pieces of my soul you left

Young as a weed, I am.
Quick as a wink.
Hot as sunrays
Burning through morning haze.
Everything is fine.
Eyes made of sky, I have.
Blue, orange, and pink.
Irises of sunset,
Except the sky has no regret.
Everything is fine.
Soul cold as iron, I have.
Brittle as old snow.
Tired as a wide highway,
Stretched straight for states.
But everything is fine.
Time rushes on, I know.
Dark, deep, and slow.
Moving only forward,
Ignorant of sinking stones.
Everything is fine.
Hard to move on, I think,
When sky-eyes look backward,
Leaving my ass
To find its own way.
Everything is fine.
Up is still the clouds, it

Beware the darksome maid, Shavaughn,
Who stalks barefoot across the lawn
From her cold dark-veinéd marble tomb
To gnaw your soul and seal your doom...
She casts her spells of madness wild,
This strange and lovely woman-child
Whose long dark tresses and pale skin
Conceal the horrors that lurk within...
Her tainted lips part in such a smile
That would make Van Helsing run a mile--
O, linger not! Beware her eyes!
In love and dread her victim dies
As her impish laugh rings through the night
In macabre, wicked, pure delight...
