"Happy is he among men upon earth who has seen these mysteries!
It is generally accepted among historical scholars that the cult of Demeter and Persephone, or Kore, existed in Greece and the surrounding Mediterranean islands long before the traditional Olympian gods became entrenched. Her origins are Cretan . Like Aphrodite, the mother and daughter goddess represent a matriarchal form of fertility worship in the forms of crops and nature, and through this the cycle of birth, growth and death. This myth, however, has taken hold of imaginations from its evolutions into the Eleusinian mysteries of Ancient Greece, to the paintings of Victorian Europe, to today, each with their own distinctive takes and emphases on the story. Perhaps it is the fact that we know so little about the original tale of Persephone the daughter of Demeter, goddess of fertility, snatched
Elegon FairytaleThe water was lonely. It ran from river to river, ocean to ocean, alone. Many of the creatures that lived in the water paid it no mind, continuing on with their own life, unaware of the water's. The water decided one day to make itself some companions, someone to flow and keep company with. The water watched many humans at its rivers and oceans and created, what the water called, Ulas based off of the females. Some were made of water while others were made of scales and flesh. The Ulas made the rain and took care of the sea and river life during the day, while they played all night.Elegon Fairytale3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
One night, the air passed by the river and saw the Ulas playing and dancing along the water. The air suddenly felt lonely, just as the water had. It blew through the lands all alone and decided that it could use companions as well. The wind called them Auras. The air, like the water, designed them as female humans made of air and flowing dresses. The Auras traveled with the wind and their domain was the sky

Eerie place for midnight play
Glow worms sit on magic leaves
Stage is set, time to believe.
Audience ready, moonless night
Creatures wait to see this sight
Wings flutter, sound like bees
Descend beneath guarding trees.
Into fairy ring they sweep
Beautiful dancing, soul could weep
Glow worms fall slowly to the ground
Dying light, made no sound.
Fairy music does not last long
Just like twilight come and gone
Look with care you might see
Fairies sparkling hilarity.

Gossamer wings glow under the moon
Delicate laughter tickles the ear
Creatures of magic start to draw near
Hush watch the fairytales of old come alive
Who on children's imaginations they've thrived

Enchantments lull you into a trance
The sun gives the horizon a gentle kiss
As they disperse, you know you'll miss
The faeries alight upon the 'shrooms
With gossamer wings that glow under the moon

Who needs rose tinted glasses
when you have
glazed eyes enamelled sighs
and sugarcoated insomnia.
I long for movie tomorrows
instead of these
xylophonic beclazone dreams.
I want to saturate the grey matter
without a hint of remorse.
I want to play the undersleeper,
pinning back my eyelids with
the idiolect of those I'd like to know better.
Do you want to hear my mind vomit or should I
just turn the page and start again...?

When I fall apart
I don't want you
To hear my cries
I will always push away
The ones who say they care
It's just sorrow and shame
They care only about themselves
It's just their morality
That makes them pretend
They never look in my eyes
Too afraid of what they might see
Of the empty stare
That won't go away
Scared of the darkness
Of the soulless face
And the hint of a murder
That is always there

I saw myself
Lonely eyes casting down
They showed me the beauty in the simplest of things
I remember the beat like a thousand kings
Who would teach me the song
Of a million birds
Who would leap through the trees
Looking for her
Nothing is kept secret
Through the walls eyes
You keep telling
Those awful lies
If I could only bring
You to your knees
So you could see
The inception in the prettiest of things
Caring and kindness
Go a long way
When you're singing the song
Taught by a thousand ways
Passed down throughout the time
Nothing is sacred
In these medieval rhymes
Now it is time, time again
Time to release
Time to end
The tears that have been keeping
A million years of peace
Crying won't save you
Everyone knows that
But if you start breathing
You might actually find
The truth in the floor
The love in my eyes
Telling you that it is finally time
To wake up.

I can feel the sun stroking my face, and then the life comes back to my body. As I open my eyes and my vision becomes clear, I notice immediately that Im not in the dome, as I normally would. I observe everything around the room, and my mind recognizes it as the bedroom inside Jumbas spaceship. Why am I here, instead of being in my warm bed up there in the dome? I cant remember anything from yesterday my head aches whenever I try to remember anything I dont have to worry; maybe my memory will come back to me in a few minutes. By now, Im only interested in knowing what I am doing here. My feet slide off the bed, and by first time I notice the wires stuck to my wrists, arms and my legs, and some advanced machinery beside of the bed, as if it was monitoring each one of my moves. I freeze: why do I have all these wires stuck on my skin? Before my mind can formulate any other question, the old sluice opens, and after

Everyone sat quietly in the choir room, despite their successful invitational's performance, the tensions were still high. As usual, the 'Nerd Herd' sat around each other, with Jordyn stealing an occasional glance at Alex, who sat on the other side of the room, his arm around Rachel. No one from the upper quad had spoken to her, not that it was an unusual development, but Alex had gone out of his way to ignore her. Nysha had tried to make her feel better about the situation, but it was no use.
I don't get it. Jordyn thought to herself. How did Principal Hamilton find out? I didn't tell anyone. She looked around the room at everyone, hoping to a suspect. Nysha? She hates Rachel enough, but there's no way she'd ever sink that low Maybe Alex told Lance or Daryn? She looked at both boys. Lance was showing Daryn some of the choreography. That wouldn't make sense.

"Sir? Look who's come for you."
The nurse spoke friendly as she approached the elderly man, who had been staring contently out of the window before. The man didn't react nor did he acknowledge her appearance; all he did was smile at the outside world.
The withered man turned around at the sound of the new voice. His vision became clear for a moment and his mouth struggled to find the words he had been repeating in his head for hours now. He grunted, frustrated with himself that he couldn't properly greet his visitor. Someone who he cared for so much. Did he? He wasn't sure. All he knew was that whenever that person came around, he felt alive again.
"How's yew doin', Nick?"
He saw the other man nod to the nurse who immediately went on her way and out of Nick's sight. The man, who he somehow vaguely recognized, squatted in front of him and he felt the warm touch of a hand on his knee. Nick stared at the man's face.
