Beneath the northern lights
Wind shrieks on dark shores
Here at the end of the world.
Beneath the northern lights
We gaze in silent reverie
Bank the coals and whisper
Ethereal dreams await.
Wind shrieks on dark shores
Icebergs glow ghostly blue
Forbidding desert vast
Wasteland of snow.
Here at the end of the world
Truth has been distilled
Amid the crushing roar
Of silence and renown.

The Brightest StarThe Brightest Star4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The brightest star is you.
You used to be a dim star, becoming overpowered by sin.
All of those failures turned into stepping stones of success across a long, winding river.
And you took courage and crossed it.
Look where it led you.
It led you to where you are now, this moment, this second;
You succeeded in so much.
No more of that sin is within you.
You're full of light.
A time in in your life, your heart was full of sin.
Now it's filled with love,
And thanks be to God that you are a wonderful person that came into my life to make it better as well.
You make me happier than I can imagine everyday.
You're NOT a failure.
Never doubt or forget that,
Because I believe in you without a doubt in my mind.
You WILL succeed in New York and will be able to pursue those goals.
You just have to believe it yourself.
Like I said before,
You are not a failure.
I love you.
Dream StormCrashing waves of tides uncertainDream Storm5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A safe way out, hard to determine
Rocking softly to the violent lullaby
Of an awful twisted rebel cry
That makes my boat tremble in fear
No longer can these weak hands steer
Against the ever growing might
Of a vampire-esque bite
With water long waiting for a meal
A meal of flesh, wood, and steel
I'll rest upon a sea of sand
Never to be again on land
Love song museIn the dark of the predawn a man steps into an open spaceLove song muse3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Pensive, reflective, he turns and gazes out toward the East
To a mystic wellspring, for the lyrics of an unsung song
To be transcribed onto the parchment placed before him
Soon a Northern breeze caresses his ear, a gentle whisper
Carrying echoes of secret words from a woman far away
They mingle with his own as they flow through his mind
Until meaning is birthed within his heart, and so spoken
Words tumble forth as shapes, a creation, a dream realized
Pages are darkened, written, the way such songs are sung
But this is a new love song, made existent, love manifest
And his dream now realized, he pauses, mindful, caring
Turning now, he faces North, imagining that far off place
Feelings of passion flow, desire inflames the heart’s intent
His love song transformed, now a living letter, given flight
An eon of timeless moments, as if borne on angel wings
For the woman, completed by startling moments of love
The letter falling gen
Shades ChangingIn the light of the fire,Shades Changing4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
to see your eyes reflecting,
pale embers in the cold night.
We listen to the waters lap at the shore,
tearing it down,
the perfect metaphor for you and I.
Remember when we slept here?
We would watch the ships come
in the cold grey of the morning;
waiting for the sky to ignite.
Waiting for the world to die.
you exist in my memory,
and in the arms of your beau.
You lay somewhere far from here,
too far for me to let go.
As the shades of grey blossomed
into vibrant worlds of red and orange
I whispered to you that you were my only one,
and I meant it,
every time I meant it.
It's only you,
or it was...
Times change as people surely change,
and emotions run as dry as desert rivers.
I'm tired of fighting the shadows at night,
screaming at them to stop haunting me.
They almost make me feel as old as I felt when I was young,
young and in love with you.
Here I go,
tossing this note into the ocean,
hoping the sea or the sky will swallow it,
and with it go
Tonight: The Sad StoryIf I told you I love youTonight: The Sad Story6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Would I overstep those bounds
That we've set without trying?
Would you take my hand
Look me in the eye
And say the same to me?
Three little words that carry so much
That mean everything
And I mean them for you...
Let me stay with you
Caress your cheek
Hold your hand
Taste your lips
I'm so tired of being alone
And now that I'm with you
I hope to never be alone again

The real lesson: don't trust people who tell you what your future will be.

The way she laughed.
The way my arm brushed against hers...
So far gone,
I still remember it all.
I don't remember it the way I experienced it, though,
Now I just remember it the way it really was.
She is so flawed and far from perfect.
Back then, though,
Every flaw was perfect on her.

Call out without a sound,
But is there a point in screaming now?
You are helpless, can't you see?
You lit the match that set this free
So watch the world around you burn
This time it will be your turn
To join the flames as they close in
And feel it overcome your skin
Play with fire, you'll get burned
Those who yell will never learn

All the troubled thoughts of my day,
Pull me down within your clutch
With your sweet embrace I won't fight much
For nothing else can quite be compare
To the effortless feeling of senses impaired
And nothing stops a wandering mind
Like the rough taste of air, impossible to find
So I'll clasp my eyes and sink away
Every so peacefully making my way
To the soft silky sand while I'll finally sleep
Where the downers of life can no longer seep
And once I feel rested, my sanity regained
I'll climb back out to where I once came
And smile with confusion at all that I see
Sweet chaos above, there will always be
But this chaos, this chaos, I do love it so
A place free of unrest I could never call home
And I'll disappear into the screaming as one
A world that makes sense could never be fun
Daddy's girlWhen I was a little girl I loved my Daddy more than the entire world.Daddy's girl5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
However it was my Mother who was the constant in my life. She was the one who picked me up when I fell and kissed the pain away. The one who read me bedtime stories and sang to me when I had nightmares. The one who walked me home after school to my dance rehearsals and spent night upon night sowing together outfits for my shows, in which she came to every single one, clapping louder and with more passion than any other in the room. Never was a child loved so much by a parent and I knew this fact. I took it for granted.
On the other hand my Daddy was a rare existence. He was always busy with work, shut away in his office at weekends. While my Mother threw lavish parties for my birthday with homemade banquets, my Daddy's appearance was a treat that made my day complete. I idolised him, and each time I made him smile I felt as if I had achieved a very great thing indeed, because he did not throw around his affection lik

As a moga tamer, Adrienne was almost a master. She had basically every moga in existence even the limited ones. She spotted Nova sauntering up the road, petting her pangolin scarf. Adrienne waved and ran up to her. She showed Nova the moga she was to catch for her for a quest, a Sweetish. Nova nodded in approval." Nice job Tamer. Now, the last one you have to catch is a Shen. It's an epic so it'll put up a fight. It's located at Rankwallow. After this is your reward for completing the quest. Good luck Tamer!" And with that, she continued down the road.
A day later, Adrienne had caught the epic Shen at Rankwallow. It took her about ten starseeds but she had about fifty left that she had saved for this quest especially. Nova again came down the road, carefully avoiding the blackish goo that was splattered on the ground.
"Excellent! Now your reward is . A new moga to catch! It's at a new area, Citadel Atrium, just above the Citadel Entrance. This moga is super rare, but
