A Feast of EmotionThe feast had worn Landon thin. The preparation had been extensive and pulled at everyone's strings to get right. It was the normality of the event that drove most people; made them strive to make it seem like all was well outside of the walls of the colony by throwing a celebration. While this was technically a feast for himself, the newcomers and up-jumped commanders he had never met, he had no love for the work he put into it; it only reminded him of the waste, the cost. For what? For one night of spoils and singing? Would the morrow bring famine and the diseased to the joy-fattened people?A Feast of Emotion8 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

I'm not able to live in the present,
I'm in love with anxious dreams
Both under wet glimmer of crescent
An' solar fiery streams.
I'm not able to live in the present,
I'm taking the hint of a string,
Flowers, woods resounding pleasant,
An' tales a billow may bring.
For a greater desire forever I pine
I live in the future so dim,
At dawn in the fog I peacefully sign
An' with a night cloud I swim.
Often I'm covered by a sudden delight
Disturbing the leaves with a kiss.
I constanltly live in a tireless flight,
I live in a ceaseless unease.
Time's Great HuntTime's Great Hunt2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If time is a forest,
Both endless, and dark,
with diverging pathways,
drawn in leaf and bark,
And within this forest,
I'm told I will see,
a place for the two of us,
just you and me.
And so here I am searching,
through the infinite wood,
Some say I should give up,
But I never could.
For it's for you that I'm living,
For you that I'm here.
I'll find a place for us.
The future is clear.
Ironclad ReviewIronclad Review2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
In 13th-century England, a small group of Knights Templar fight to defend Rochester Castle
against the tyrannical King John. This is Rumor Control, here are the facts! Last year a
great movie came out, a great movie which no one saw: Centurion. Centurion is a great
(albeit historically inaccurate) period action film. It featured good acting, a good
characters and great action. Nearly a year later a similar movie has come out: Ironclad. I
find Ironclad to be very similar to Centurion, being that it's a violent historical
(inaccurate) action film. But how is it compared to Centurion? Is it as good or even
better? Or is it just rubbish? W

Are blooming 'neath the late may skies.
I know there's time this afternoon,
And storms are brewing in the gloom
So with a pen and greatest care
I'll gather all the blossoms there
And place them down upon the page,
For some young mind and distant age.
I know, that many years from now,
When winds have rent those petals down;
When bitter fruits will bend them low
Whose branches once were laid with snow,
This gnarled and old crabapple tree,
With fruits a sourful sight to see,
Will lack in sweeter public taste,
And plummet to the ground in waste.
But then, as so things are, my friend,

these fruitless porters void of pregnant means
impeach the cries that tether Ego's ties
to all the magistrate of Id's machines.
And yet, tho stars deride the mortal strum

the founts of Delphi shall my pen become
to scribe on Triton's waves with high refrain
O come, waters deep, swiftly from your keep!
Nel pozzo non vedo le stelleNel pozzo non vedo le stelle3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Dicono che se ti trovi sul fondo di un pozzo profondo
puoi vedere il cielo stellato.
Se cadi in un pozzo profondo, ma a testa in giù
le stelle restano nascoste e le lacrime
fanno riempire il pozzo di acqua salata.
Così nessuno butta più giù il secchio nel buio del pozzo
per venirti a raccogliere
e le tue ossa stanno tutte scomposte
e ti lamenti che se almeno ti fossi gettata dritta adesso vedresti le stelle
e il tuo volto non sarebbe schiacciato tra fango secco e lacrime di pianto
ma poi a che serve voltarsi per vedere le stelle?
Vorrei che questo pozzo non fosse tanto profondo

Il bosco della morteMary si era persa nel bosco. Vagava tra gli alberi ricoperti di muschio, ma non era preoccupata, al contrario. Per quanto lei corresse, alzandosi il bordo della gonna, il piccolo scoiattolo davanti a lei continuava a sfuggirle. A volte l'animale si fermava, guardando indietro verso di lei per poi ripartire appena la bambina gli si avvicinava.Il bosco della morte3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Very funny, SPOT."
"I... I'm scared..." Dennis shuddered sarcastically. "Not!"
"I mean look!" He turned to his surroundings. The perimeter was abundant with lush greens and brimming with all sorts of plant life. "It's all just great. I'm gonna take lots of photos of this place!"
But SPOT's warning replayed once again in his head as he took his camera in his hands, warning him of potential dangers ahead. There's no such thing as monsters. He insisted. It's all in the head.
"We're definitely going to get through this... right, mom, dad?" Dennis felt a sense of security as he held his lucky charm in right hand. His parents had never failed

Soon, the main gates would be down, and the rebels would kill the few guards left. And, of course, he would follow. He could hear their cries of outrage and self-proclaimed righteousness. The shouts of "Death to the Archbishop!", intermingled with others such as "Long live the Lady Loyse!" and such nonsense. After gathering the few artifacts he could salvage from the razed Cathedral, Brennus sat down upon his bed, priestly yellow of the jeweled robes contrasting against royal purple of the bed sheets.

My dreams had, briefly, consisted of us lying down, and for a few moments after I've woken up I mistake the blanket tangled around my midsection as your arm. I reach down to caress, and I realize I'm no longer dreaming.
Outside of my window, a tree is pushed by the wind, and it sighs.
Its five thirty and the house is dim.
The blanket is no longer wrapped across my stomach. I'm cozily tucked underneath it as my breath quietly disturbs bits of stray hair across my nose that, if I were awake, I would have brushed away. I'm not dreaming about you.

Forgotten by the inhabitants from above, yet, still alive in the minds of those who survived. There is nothing in this cavern but dust and spider webs, but as we move deeper through it, we find a huge room.
It’s filled with inscriptions and old paintings that somehow survived through time. The paintings depict an extinct race that no one even knows it existed. This was once part of an impressive building.

Hold me and hurt me.

Why I’m always cold
Why I like the unknown,

And grew up like this.
No wonder I’m the little dark angel
The one that always lived in the dark.

There's a whole new person
Someone that we never thought it existed.
Of course everyone has a mask
A mask that covers what we don't want other to see.
Some hide the beauty
Others hide the hate
But there's other that hide their true personality.
They change completely so they don't get judged
So they don't get trolled at.
That's not right.
People should accept themselves as they are
Not what others want them to be.
There's a mask in every person.
A mask that hides what they don't want others to see.

You need to know that I'm a very insecure person,
I have a very low self esteem and I'm not perfect.
I am everything but perfect.
I find it hard to trust people now.
I've made mistakes in the past,
And I've learned to live with them.
I've learned to accept people for who they really are,
It's not hard.
Sometimes, I can't be bothered anymore.
Sometimes I don't even want to be alive,
But, the thing is,
I have a million reasons to be alive
And I just haven't found them yet.
I miss the people I shouldn't even think about anymore.
And I've been hurt.
