Immortals: Amissus CorPlease forgive me if I cannot speak the words you so dearly wish to hear. The dead have come into my household and there is no safety in the sanctuary I call my mind.
Really, don't mind my ramblings, they mean nothing; I highly doubt you would find any worth within my smooth and melancholic voice.
I, myself, would find none. I have grown to be stone cold, death, and I enjoy the numbness that began with my fingertips.
I will not cry for you at your funeral. My love for you has turned to dust and the scent of human ash. So many human bodies burning, can you not see them, darling? They're watching you, with their eyes and jaws wide open. Waiting to eat you.
Forgive me if I frighten you, my words are said with light heart. Though, should a light heart be allowed to say such sinfully nerve wrecking words? I suppose not, but despite the fact that I live within light, my soul is devoured by their darkness.
Don't fret. I like them. They gave me the life everyone so desires. Immortality, I dare

And you tried to pick them up one by one
Did you not care that you cut yourself?
Drops of blood fell from your fingertips
As I watched you pathetically, laying on the floor
Why did you love me so much?
A single stumble - you fell breaking the shards even worst
But you, my beautiful darling, kept on going
Are you not tired of me?
Try putting me back together
And I come back
But what is life without you?

Filled with ever changing Colors and Lights
People would Evolve, becoming Miraculous
But then I saw a Change that was far from Greatness
Everything became Nasty and riddled with Disgust
It all grew into something Wrong and Impure
My Hatred for the People I used to Love started to Grow
Just as their Filthiness Grew
And I thought of ways to Light them All on Fire
But like Armored Knights they came
My Friends I had previously Abandoned
And they showed me the unfiltered light within the

I'll laugh and cry
Meanwhile she'll die
The music is in her mind

Immortals: Insulsum LibraI have contemplated 'Love' for the ever long duration of my never ending life. It has yet to become a concept that I can comprehend, and for one simple reason: In all the years that my heart has beat and breath has continued to be an unconscious action, I have not yet felt the overwhelmingly warm emotion. I have felt the affectionate emotion I deem to call love toward those who share my blood – though it is a small number that I say so to truthfully – but it hardly feels as if it were a complete version of the emotion.Immortals: Insulsum Libra1 year ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Everyone who has loved has hated. Love does not exist without the malicious emotion of hatred. In all my days, I have not yet learned to hate. It is a foreign concept to my body, mind, and soul. I will not hate in the life I am to live, and if that keeps me from knowing love, then so be it; that shall be my tragic Legend.
The Immortal who knew neither love nor hatred.
Both emotions are incomprehensible to me. How could one feel such feelings? Love, complete love, comes w

As we were sitting on my bed
His bright eyes gleaming
I had swallowed my death
In my nightmares
My skin is splitting
My face is shriveling
And my bones sanguine
My hear is ice
My lungs are fire
My body burns
As my breath freezes
A blood-curling scream
Scratching at my soul
God, help me please!
There goes the Devil's laughter
For my tongue is gone
As is my final breath
I drank the Devil's wine

Your feelings are what have been given
Your wishes are a disarray
I will be here for you until the day
The day you stop telling me to go away

But in the end, there's nothing left of him

That's all she can say
As she stares into the dark moor
Into the emptiness
And she's dying
But no one can save her
She tells me words that pierce my heart
Words that take turn in stabbing my soul
"You can't save me"
Murmurs said so sweetly
Do you know who you are in death?
"I love you"
I love you too
But saying so will kill me with you
2. Love, Shadows, and the Sun He had no idea how great her love was, and the second he realized how great her love was he lost her.2. Love, Shadows, and the Sun1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And he had loved her just as much. What was he to do with love that couldn't do anything? He left it to die in the Shadows, and there the Sun never came.
His love stood frozen and numb. So long had it been in ice that when the Sun shined again the love cracked and started to destroy itself; to break.
Only the Sun's fire could melt the ice, but the Sun was so furious, sad. And so, the Sun stopped shining until the day love continued to live between them again.
Who knows when the day will come?

Red and black and white
Splattered across your lips
Your eyes are painted in green
The witch eyes of a queen
Empty black pupils
Your hand is painted with soft cream
Nails the color of your soul

Curling over curves
In a lonely dying embrace
Your soul is painted in ribbons
Of your hopes and dreams
Of all the fallen

My throat was itchy. I coughed. Maybe I was thirsty? Was I dehydrated? Was I getting sick again?
I looked at the cold, bare trees outside. It was winter and it was cold outside. The twins' birthday was just tomorrow and I still hadn't picked up their present from the store. It was bought and wrapped, just waiting to be taken home.
I shook my hair out with my fingers.
"What's shaking, oh darling niece of mine?" my uncle Callum asked grinning and rubbing my head as though I were a toddler.
"What did you get the twins' for tomorrow?" I asked looking up at him.
All Royals were breathtakingly beautiful. My uncle stood tall with his dark looks. The Dark family had darker looks. He had
Immortals: Querensque Avitum HorologiumMy musings have lasted for far too long. In the time I have taken to think about the world, I have lost everything. My blood has fallen; body bags of blood and bones buried six feet below the ground. Either that or they are burned to ash and dust, off to be set free in the wind. I inhale their remains.Immortals: Querensque Avitum Horologium1 year ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I have lost everything but the coldness in my heart and my cold coin. How I wish I had lost myself in the insanity that became time. An Immortal shall never awaken from its nightmare.
I regret my decision to become something I was not, something I am. How monstrous the true meaning my existence has become. I would much rather end my only life and join my ever holy dead. But I can neither die nor join them. I shall pray to my beloved.
It should have been so easy to see my downfall, but I became entangled in the magic and miraculous turn I believed my decision to make. I did not predict the consequences, as I should have. And now I am stuck between an island of memories and never ending ti

Their brown fur ruffling in the wind
They sway side to side
Swinging on a tree
They jump on the bed
As I read them a book
A book about other monkeys falling off and hitting their head
Eating their bananas
Clear joy in their faces
They fill my heart with warmth
Because they're not really monkeys
But they might as well be.
They're my baby brothers, my own monkeys.

Rotting ThroneThere were many people who fell that day. I was not one of them. But then the rest started to break, like aged puppets. I was not one of them.Rotting Throne2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
But then I looked around at the residue. Straying souls, empty bodies, black eyes, and the smell of lost hope in the air.
One person pushed their self over the edge, to fall and to break. Like an aged puppet with broken strings. But it was not just a puppet, it was a marionette.
That person was me.
I fell to fix the cruel sadness. And I came back. We all did.
But we had forgotten.
Never forget your scars. They will grow. You will forget to heal them, mend them. And so they grow. Grow. Grow. Grow.
They grew. Grew. Grew. Grew.
And again, many people started to fall. A second time. The rest to break. A second time. But I was not either of them.
They were imbeciles.
I stayed on my throne. Ruled all of nothingness.
Then the impossible happened...
I started to rot. Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot. Rot.Rot. Rot.

The corridors were quiet as I walked through them. The only sound was my heels clicking on the foyer. I steeled myself to be ready for the chaos that I would meet once I reached my destination.
I wouldn't think of the blood I had coughed up until later. I already knew it was very stupid to not tell anyone about it, especially since as far as I knew this hadn't happened to any other Royal before, but the twins' birthdays were so important to me. I had already missed more than I wished to have and I wasn't going to dare mess up one (and therefore, in my own mind, missing it).
I paused at the door I was supposed to go through. A small business meeting could last a while and I had stupidly forgotten to ask Cassandra who the meeting was with. I could only hope that it wasn't the Greek or Egyptian Gods, or even the Christian or Catholic God.
I jinxed myself, I realized, as I opened the door. The Greek and Egyptian Gods were here as were the Christian a

We came from home
And now we've all lost it

Of how they grew to be
Into something horrendous
So stay tuned
Because introductions last forever
