Nightmares are HereditaryYou cannot deny that a force started the universe.Nightmares are Hereditary2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I cannot deny that divinity is looking down.
We cannot deny what has taken place here.
Look down at your feet.
It is the ground you have always known. But something is not right. Can you feel it? Kneel down. Hear it yet? Press your ear down.
If you listen close enough, you can hear what troubles the soil.
Perhaps you don't hear the screams?
Yes, I said screams.
Draw a line right through the earth to the other side.
Someone is over there, screaming, someone is over there, in pain.
Wondering if anyone is listening. Wondering if they have any comfort.
Or perhaps they are listening fo
Dreamwalker-introDespite the many differences, both physically and culturally, throughout the eight Houses, one thing remains common: the idea and belief that everything begins in Fire, and to Fire it returns.Dreamwalker-intro3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Powerful witches - members of the houses with supernormal powers - were able to control Fire with enough practice, no matter what their starting element was. Mothers felt the Fire when giving birth. Corpses were burned, sending them back to the Fire from which they were born.
Even the eight Houses - or three, as they were in the beginning - began in fire. It was fire the kept the enemy at bay, and it was fire that formed the alliance between the Nort

How you cradle my shell in your hands
This strength is mistaken
I've confidence in you
This isn't a stone in your eyes but a
Dead and dried coral
Unwrap me from your cotton sheets
I'm suffocating under this packaging
We aren't a glass to keep in a case
You don't leave an egg in a carton to rot
Don't save a sea star from drowning
It dries up and dies in the sands
Undo this delicacy
And speak to me
Shred the wrappings from your fingers
Just say it
Tell me where you're hurt
I'll bring ice for you
Just say it and tell me
Because right now I feel like some sea star
Being saved by a drowning man
RebellionSince a very young age, I've been taught to be afraid,Rebellion2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To look down and, instead of seeing the opportunity of flight, see the fall instead,
To find an enemy in every stranger, instead of a possible friend,
To look at every opportunity and see the possibility of failiure.
Since a very young age, I've been taught that there were no happy endings.
I'm not a princess, and you're not my hero.
But I've never been a damsel in distress.
That at least, I knew from the start.
Since a very young age, I've been taught that I have no limits.
I've also been taught that testing that theory doesn't end well.
So here it is.
My teenage rebellion.

and then she clove in two
They took my mind and took her mind
and we then had one you
Then take one you and add one me
and we would have ourselves
Then take ourselves and add one she

The belles we shine and bells do ring

Why, don't you know? Tis no small thing

I tried not to come back again,
But something odd just drew me right back here.
Hello there, it's just me again,
I'm trying hard to write again
But it's not that easy now that you're gone.
But there's nothing I can do....
No, there's nothing I can do...
But sit and wait for you.
Hello there, I don't mean to pry,
But what is it that makes you cry?
Was it something I did, all those years ago?
Cause I've been locked up years and years,
And I just wish that I knew your fears
And write again, so I could write them all away.
But there's nothing I can do.....
No, there's nothing I can do....
Chapter 1Many years ago, there was a city. It was in the very center of the land of Queyven, carved into what had once been a great mountain. The entirety of the city seemed to be made of white marble, and, just as the sun was rising, you could see the city gleaming from afar. Many theories circulated historians about just how the city itself was made. Some believed it was carved by the goddess Oyen herself. Others believed it had simply always been there, and when the Queyvenites migrated from whatever lands they had first come from, they had simply taken up residence.Chapter 12 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

All this time,
I tried finding you something worth more than a dime,
Something to show you that you were mine
So instead I wrote you a song,
A song that'd make you sing along,
For once, I wasn't wrong
I think I've made A Day to Remember,
And I just can't wait for tonight.
We'll sing our lungs out, (we wont stop)

I don't want go to sleep again; nightmares about you fill my head.
It poisons me, it corrupts me.
And I can't get it out my head.
It haunts me, it wants me.
It calls out to me in the night.
I try to forget.
I try to let my mind wander, and every time I do you come back to me.
GET AWAY FROM MEEEEEEE!!!!!
Leave me be, you don't want me!
Secretly I obsess about you.
I hate it, I loathe it and yet I can't get enough.
For some reason I feel stronger, like I'll last longer.
Even though I'm drifting closer to the end.
You're killing me from my nightmares.
Destroying every thought, turning me into one of them.

We never can know can we?
Enjoying the time we have with others
Sometimes miserable without
Wishing sometimes to make it last forever
Sometimes to be the only 2 people in the world
So no one interrupts
No one is mad
No one is sad
You find yourself usually glad
You love them
And if you're lucky, they love you
And if you're even luckier
You both know it
When you're with them
It feels like you're the only ones on Earth
We don't like losing that feeling
When we do
We get sad
Nothing can make you happy
When you're with them
You should cherish it
And if you do
You might feel like you're on top

My eyes are open, but I can see nothing.
I am alone.
My first thought is a question, asking how I know that.
My second is a statement:

It is cold.
If I could see, I would have seen my breath.
But I can't so I don't.
It is..... wet?
I wave my hand around.
Something pushes back, like water.
I'm floating somewhere.
That's why I can't see.
My third thought is an emotion:

Kings demand marriage to their lovely daughters.
Enchanted princes howl like beasts.
Young men live quite penniless.
Tricksters roam the world at large,
helping themselves with silver tongues.
Entertainment comes with the price of pain, dancing in red-hot slippers.
Evening brings the big bad wolf closer.
Ashes stain pretty girls cheeks.
They all wait for ever after.

Such keeper innocent glance I cant stop staring at all night,
Lying over you,
Caressing your smooth cheeks touching my fragile fingers
My mouth outlines your sweet dry lips with a single passionate kiss,
Shuddering my spine,
I nibble gently your neck leaving your Adam's apple and signs behind,
Moving forwards your pumping in love heart as mine,
Im delighted as each beat I feel inside,
As one we stay,
As one we will die.

Without a minimum of dignity to be He or She,
Waiting for a hand that would softly caress its face
And heals the scars of a broken heart remains.
In that forgotten corner,
Thirst and hunger it drank and tasted,
Chained to a yellow thin dry rope as its weakening body,
Chained to our attention and will,
We did nothing to lessen such horrible painful display.
Viewers came and were
While It was always there, all the time, in that gallery,
Seated or lying shrunken on the cold stone floor
Enduring until it could no more,
Like a gruesome painting or a lifeless statue,
A real-like art
