Met by Moonlight
Chapter 1: Hunted...
Running. We were running. I didn’t know where nor did I care. All I knew was that we were being chased; the predator had now become the prey. We were being hunted by those who had a hunger for blood and held murder in their hearts. They craved our deaths, so we ran.
I dared to glance behind. The drumming of hooves and cries of the men were getting closer. Lights from their torches hovered in the distance between the brambles and tree silhouettes. We tore through streams, bushes and the forest itself in an attempt to delay the inevitable, but they were slowly drawing closer and closer to us; so close that I could physically feel the huntsman’s breath on the back of my neck.
“Come on!” Fenris called from ahead.
“I-I’m coming!” I shouted back, barely able to keep my breathing steady. I was tired, so very tired.
“Come on men, we’ll catch these abominations!” The huntsman spat vehementl

On a temptress made of ice
It's cold tonight
Snow falls in her eyes
A winter of delights
Her lips are spilling lies beside
The northern lights
I remember the days upon days
I was caught in the gaze of a beautiful goddess
Worthy of praise
Keeping a man in the heart of a maze
Every turn meant 70 more
Whenever I open a door
I'd end up in another part of the maze
This would go on for days upon days
I remember the winter jacket
Here in the maze I wish that I had it
Dammit, my bad, how could I be
Stupid enough to forget it
I neglected, I regret it
But there's no way for me to get it and
I won't get credit, but I guess it
Wouldn't do much to protect me from the
Ice of your fingers touch
Excuse me I've said too much
Take a little moment to see
That you will be remembered as such
The same in the minds eye
As in my eye, and my lies
Are the memories of the little things
You lost in your crying eyes
The eye tries to get into the head
Of the man who is already dead
But the living have n

Anarchy And DemolitionStars fall from a darkened skyAnarchy And Demolition4 years ago in Other More Like This
Each torrent of salt water pulls me further out to sea
I'm surrounded by oceans, and yet my throat is dry
For the water's depths are those of an immense degree
The deafening silence is so very profound
And the painstaking happiness is unmistakable
There are missing pieces to this puzzle still to be found
The world dangles on a string that's unbreakable
But the sobs of so many unfortunate souls
Could cause that thread to quake
And we're losing administration of the controls
Chaos will rear its ugly head and leave destruction in its wake
Bleeding InkThese words have bled from my very soul,Bleeding Ink4 years ago in Other More Like This
Though to you they're nothing but symbols on pages
I shout their meanings to the wall, losing all control,
But in reply the plaster just stands still for ages
I know that the walls have ears, but they won't pay mind
Just as you can hear my voice, but it just won't speak to you
The walls I sought console in are now closing in and I'm confined
So I need you to give heed and lend me a diverse point of view.
Just Hurry UpAn underlying sense of counting down:Just Hurry Up4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Rhythmic, deep enteric thuds -
Each another year to fret and frown
About, wading in the claggy mud
That constitutes a blackened life.
A glint of blade had caught a baggy eye
To spark a thought to jump the fence.
Could I grasp the handle was I shy
Of what I had to do and hence remain
Enshrined in overwhelming strife?
The metal glimmered once again
To beg the possibility
Of halting once and all the pain
To relish an eternity
Of rested shoulders,
Peace of mind,
So here, my wrist;
Now quick and kind.
Winter WonderlandWe are skating on the thinnest iceWinter Wonderland4 years ago in Other More Like This
If only it wouldn't melt, nor splinter and crack
The powdery white substance from the sky is, oh, so nice
And there's not a doubt Sir Jack Frost is back
Perhaps I'll be visited by a Christmas ghost or two
Of holidays past, present, and those yet to come
Maybe I'll get a diverse point of view
Though I just may gain more pains to numb
You shiver despite your scarf and sweater
I ought not to complain about the cold
For when with you my outlook is so much better
And I'm kept warm by your heart of gold
I can smell the chill in the air
The nostalgia within the scent is thick
And I can taste each idle care
This time of year the time passes all too quick
The RainHow heavy fell the rain that dayThe Rain4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
From burdened clouds of mournful grey.
The torrent forced them stay their height -
Composure swayed by onerous might.
My skin wrung wet with icy chill
As mud embraced that sodden hill.
But mind of mine had elsewhere gone -
'Twas clouds abandoned I was on.
The driving drops advanced their gears
To camouflage my sneaking tears -
Whence now did swell such floods of pain
To see me melt into this rain
On equal bearing now were we:
This rain; myself, in harmony.
Winter WeatherThe clouds outside are dark todayWinter Weather4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
there is no hope of sun
no matter how much it does rain
the sadness ways a ton
With the wind so cold on my face
there is a chance of snow
that same cold breeze is still blowing
it sways me to and fro
it's time to go and leace you here
as it begins to snow
the wind dances with dazzling flakes
it's time for me to go
Now We AreYou are now forever mineNow We Are4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You are my heart
Surely impossible to take part
Forever our relation will be fine
Just let your simple voice shine
This seems to be a better start
You inspire my love art
Our bodies twine
My inspiration will stay alive
Now that you truly awake
I will do as I should
If I may contrive
Though you'd always break
Both of us always misunderstood
Nothing like this will set apart
Now that we are entwine
I'm so Tired...My happiness is bitter, My anger so strong,I'm so Tired...4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The loneliness with me has never been gone,
When will this get easier? Can this be?
That I will stay in constant misery?
The shadows welcome me as I cry,
One day they take me, and I'll die,
No one will notice that I am died,
The angst words I've left unsaid,
I feel so angry for everything in life,
I am so sick of this... living in strive,
Where is that book that tells what to do,
When your mouth runs dry & your lips turn blue,
I need it now, I'm ready to end,
The pain in my body that life sends,
Please give me some pills & let me lay,
My death of suicide, now its okay.
I'm Slowly Giving UpI can feel itI'm Slowly Giving Up4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It is right there
That simple little blade
That is close to tear
I want to do this
I want to be alone
Maybe not outside
But my grief has shown
I feel so ungrateful
I have so much to live for
But each day in living
Sadness grows more and more
I'm going to do it this time
Not another breath
I'm going to really do it
And send me to death.
Caught In The StormI can no longer feel the coldCaught In The Storm4 years ago in Open More Like This
Despite the sub-zero temperatures and the snow fall
My heart sinks further with each passing moment
And, with the rhythm of the snow, the tears descend
The frost creates an icy beauty
One that is withdrawn, impervious from all in this world
The snow is the quietest of splendors
Peace brought with the loneliness
My Salvation - PoemHow can I re-trace,My Salvation - Poem4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When every step,
Is lined with disgrace,
And soaked in regret?
I can't rectify,
What I can't look in the eye.
The writing's on the wall,
I still hear their words
Waiting for my fall,
Placing on their curse.
I am damned and lost,
With no path left uncrossed.
Are they friend or foe?
I cannot gauge intentions;
There so much I don't know,
How can I find redemption?
What have I become,
That I can justify what I've done?
I am on my knees,
I am too weak to fight,
But they just won't release,
And no one hears my plight.
Judgement is calling,
And my soul is fallen.
I cannot take the blame,
And I cannot let go,
I'm drowning in my shame,
I've reached a final low.
How can I rectify,
When all I do is deny?
It's hard to take a breath,
When you're choking on your lies;
I'm terrified of death,
And so like a phoenix I shall rise.
Perhaps to find salvation,
You must first know damnation.
What is HopeWhat hope meansWhat is Hope4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Hope is bright shining light which keeps darkness at the bay
Hope is gentle cold breeze on a hot summer day
Hope is to remain positive when going gets tough
hope is seeking more when others think u had enough
What hope means
Hope is dreaming of tommorow
Hope is simmering under sorrow
Hope is sparkles when tears in our eyes
Hope is a beautiful thing & beutiful things never dies
What hope means
Hope is as light as a feather
Hope keeps all of us together
Hope is ubiquitous and free of cost
hope is the last thing ever lost.....
CrazyTrapped inside my own headCrazy4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
With nothing but my own fevered dreams to comfort me.
I know the pain of the madman;
He lives inside of me.
I've felt the strength of demons
And the weakness of self- preservation.
And hope. Hope.
Hey, parents, do you know where your kids are tonight?
Are they locked away inside of themselves?
Are their minds slipping away?
Mama hen, mama hen . . .
The fox has taken your baby again.
Precious minds are a shame to waste
Memories are forgotten in haste.
I am losing all that is me . . .
Yet gaining something entirely different.
Something that acts like an animal
And speaks like God.
Comforts me like a best friend
And loves me like its child.
I am its child.
An innocent brat, ready for its teachings.
Ready to do what is told to me.
Believing all that is said to me.
Taking in all.
And living off of my fevered dreams.
Isn't as it seemsI don't deserve someone like you.Isn't as it seems4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But I'm falling more with all you do,
Take my hand and hold it tight.
Tell me everything will be ok tonight.
Comfort me when I need it most,
Take me for walks along the coast,
Hold me close like you'll never let go,
Tell me all that I want to know.
Smile at me and make my heart melt,
Make me feel things I've never felt.
Kiss my lips oh so soft and sweet,
Fill my heart with joy, make it complete.
Text me to show me you care,
Call me to say you'll always be there.
Tell me you'll never leave me alone,
Make an effort and wear cologne.
Dance with me and look in my eyes,
Answer all my pleading cries.
It's a shame this isn't as it seems,
These things happen only in my dreams.
Cry of Our HeartsThere is a great deal of depression that has overtaken my soul,Cry of Our Hearts4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It floods deep within, into every inch that makes me whole.
I wonder and worry of thought throughout the day,
What is to come, to my dismay.
As a flood of tears pour out of me in all my expressions,
more and more comes, more and more depression.
I assure myself everything is ok!
But who am I fooling?
Then I burst into a spirit of rage.
I have questions, and there are answers.
But I'm afraid and much too weak,
When I try to explain,
I hear I'm hearing wrong and need to be meek.
But this is how I feel, there's no wrong or right,
But as I battle with myself, I always lose the fight.
I feel intimidated sometimes by others,
But as I said "This is how I feel"
The pain in me is very real.
I lose control, my thought go wild,
and here I am only a child.
If only you knew what I thought,
If only you knew what I fought.
I need my thoughts held captive.
Oh God, assure me I'm thinking normal
and you'll help me think positive.
Unbroken PromiseDo you remember that promiseUnbroken Promise4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
From two years ago
You promised you'd love me
You'd never let go
And you held onto that promise
Cherished it with your heart
I never doubted you'd break it
Not even from the start
For you truly loved me
And all my quirky ways
Even on those dark angry days
Cause you were something special
A living part of me
Nothing could break your promise
Not even death you see
Cause when you left
And passed away
You took part of me with you that day
My hearts ripped in two
But I really can't blame you
Because you made a promise
Because I made you swear
Our bond would not be broken
Our love would never tear
And never let go
So when you left
You took my heart in tow
Persian windThe Persian sun, flies high above,Persian wind4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It twists, and burns, it kills the dove.
The fire of war burns bright inside,
The armies march, they can not hide.
The Persian moon, shines down it's light,
The moon-lit halls, carry no fight.
Love is in the air tonight,
The patrons sleep, their flow silent.
The Persian stars look across the dunes,
See shining ruins in the light of the moon.
Time will flow and the wind will blow,
Swallowing the ghosts below the dunes.
We CouldWe could stay here.We Could4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The hood of my car and this
with our trails of smoke receding
past our reach
into the dark depths of space.
I can see your face
from the corner of my eye.
We could stay here.
It's all I really want.
Where the worries of tomorrow
and the worries of last night
collide into smoke
outlined by the streetlight--
Heartlesscome and seek me,Heartless4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
in the darkness I will wait,
with no memories to care,
with no purpose so gentle,
only one mission,
I am a killing beast,
missions of war are my priority,
to kill everyone,
crimson curtains and walls.
all are quiet,
not a sound..
only my breath,
this is a tragic story of one so cold,
How can someone be so Heartless?
