"Scream of the Butterfly"
His black talons shone in the firelight like beacons to his madness. The sweet scent of fear filled his primal nostrils with a sultry seductiveness unmatched by anything this existence could ever hope to offer. The unsurpassed exhilaration... the perfect harmony of pain and terror... humanity was a symphony, and he was its conductor.
Matagar examined the weeping figure he held pressed to the ground with one massive foot. She was a pathetic sight, indeed. Her black tresses were matted and soaked in her own blood and tears. Her clothing was torn - shredded in some places - from where his talons had raked across her tender flesh. She lay on her stomach, bleeding from too many wounds to count. She had been beautiful, if humans could ever attain true beauty.
Her flesh beckoned him... pleaded for the kill. It was almost overwhelming. The memory of her screams... the taste of terror on her scent. They were inviting, indeed. He wanted so badly to rend her l

She could hear his rasping breath in the darkness. The cavern that had been Celestia's home... her torment these three weeks, seemed confining as ever. She didn't understand how, but Matagar had managed to prolong her bloodletting. What should have ceased in mere days, had dragged on and on, from week to agonizing week. Every morning, he would inspect her. If she was not with child, he would mate with her... rape her - hour after hour... day after day. He did not cease or slow. From sun up to sun down, he would shame her. He slept only a few hours; it was her only reprieve from her humiliation.
In the beginning, she had thought to end her own life while he slept. Somehow, he knew what she'd planned. He always knew. It was as if her mind were an open book to him. That first night, when she'd contemplated suicide, he had appeared in front of her as if from thin air. What came next, she would not soon forget... or forgive.

"Scream of the Butterfly Pt. 3 - 'Fallen'"
I have never known such solitude. In all my centuries under the light of God, never have I been separated from my siblings for so long a time. For months, I have wandered this wilderness. For months, I have pleaded for them to come, and they do not answer. Every minute that passes brings me closer to darkness - a deep void I can feel growing within me, even now. I do not know how much longer I can remain myself.
Yesterday, I found myself cursing my own existence. Even further than that, I cursed my creator. I do not understand, or accept, what is happening to me; however, I cannot seem to control it. I fear what may be done with me, once I am returned to the celestial city. I know my Lord has felt my darkness.
I was created to serve... nothing more. I am an angel - a messenger of the one true God. It is not my place to question him... I do what I am told, and that is all. Yet, with each passing day, I find it more diff

Dear deviantART Community,
Expressing thanks to you all seems so little, though words are all I have to offer. People from all around the world, that I've met through this community and become friends with, have offered so much more than tips, tricks, and information about art and photography. There are people from many different countries, with all sorts of belief systems and points of view, that have encouraged me, and through me, my family, during my Dad's sickness. There are many of us on dA who are serious about the art community and our love of art, whether it be photography, drawing, digital art, etc., that reach out to each other in different ways, and are always there to encourage and nudge each other along.
One of my real-life friends often comments about how people and friends through the internet aren't "real" people; how there is an "invisibility" barrier. But, I disagree. I know the internet can be a

Chestnuts roasted on a dying fire.
Carbon remains: The lifeless black husks
Still protecting in vain, their charred flesh.
Like an untouched breast, once perfect.
Now wrinkled and reduced to ashes in the fire.
Flames, ethereal claws, crackle high feeding
On the flesh of the scattered demeanors.
Glance through the bamboo window.
The moon stained rains add texture to
The rouge sky; by simile can only be itself.
Clouds, like the smoke of burnt memories
Infiltrate the heavens like clear waves over burning reefs.
Below, a hut made of bamboo, drenched.
Black against the crimson sky, smoke
Enlists with clouds creating the figure
Of lifeless blackened carbon husks,
Thrown to burn, alone in the fire.
AbsentWeeks would go by so slowly as he sat at the window and watched each day over the brown fields of accumulating dead grass. It was the same routine with him every day for a period of over 13 months. Every morning, he would get up out of the large yet lonely bed and train outside before doing his chores that kept his small lot nice and clean. Then, once all the notable chores were finished, he would sit at the window with a small cup of tea and a heart full of hope, hoping that someday he would come back to him.Absent8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Each day he waited patiently, his enthusiastic grin fading with each passing hour. Along with his hope as time went on, his happiness disappeared. At the end of the day, he would slowly drag himself to bed, praying that he would be in the bed next to him the next morning. After a while had passed, they told him that he had abandoned him or that he was dead. At first, he was offended by it and would reply with an injured retort, "You are wrong! He would never do that

Why are you so different?
You're not who you used to be
And why am I so lonely,
When you're right infront of me?
Something isn't right,
I can see it in your eyes
I'm just trying to find
A truth behind the lies
You act like we're so close
But we couldn't be more far apart
And right now I can't handle
Someone playing with my heart
Tell me that I'm dreaming,
Tell me our love's still strong,
Tell me you're not leaving,
Please tell me that I'm wrong
Tell me that everything
Is going to be just fine
Tell me you love me
And you'll always be mine
Constantly, we're fighting
It gets worse everyday
And I don't want to stay
Just to watch you slip away
I only want to make you smile
But I only make you frown
I just want to make you happy
Seems all I do is bring you down
I've never felt so far away from you
And I need you here so bad
But I feel like we've already lost
Everything we ever had
Please tell me that I'm dreaming,
Tell me our love's still true,
Tell me you're not leaving,
I'd give up anythin

Scientology As It IsSCIENTOLOGY:Scientology As It Is10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The Scientology religion encompasses all life and provides practical solutions to every facet of existence. Its end goal is total spiritual freedom.
More than a system of belief, Scientology is an applied religion that plays a vital role in both the lives of its congregation and the community at large. It brings spiritual enlightenment to man by way of religious practices that advance him to higher states of spiritual ability and understanding, while providing practical solutions to every facet of day-to-day living.
Scientology is a religion in the deepest and most traditional sense, for it is concerned with no less than the full rehabilitation of man's innate spiritual self — his capabilities, his awareness and his certainty of his own immortality — and his relationship to the divine. Scientology holds in common with many of the world's oldest religions the belief that man was put here to work out his own salvation and that only by doing this can he fully understand his r

Crawling in my forlorn appearance
I hide my soul behind these tattered wings
Tattered and broken as they are
Plucked of light, stained in tears and blood.
In quiet despair upon the cold earth
Smeared in dirt I crouch upon my weary knees
And clutched timidly between my fingers
Rests one last jewel of Hope.
A single unblemished plume plucked
From the silver light of dawn
A feathered ray of light from beyond
To illuminate the void that has me bound.
This precious barb of silk
Once lost as I was and forgotten
Blazes now to immerse me in radiant bliss
To wash away the pain, draw me from the abyss.
So now I fade away…
My tender flesh removed
My shattered wings released
My inner light unsheathed… escapes.

It was a dark and stormy night! No, wait, it wasn't stormy yet. That happened later. Well, let's just say it was a dark night and leave it there.
Two whole days had passed since we had left the Cottage. We'd seen some interesting things already, like a forest of sticks and a peaceful meadow filled with animals. We'd followed the light of the Really Big Lamp and Radio's navigation skills (if they really were real) to this place; a creepy forest of darkness.
Being a lamp, I hate the dark. That's why I was so glad my light was there to shine in the forest, showing everyone where to go. Of course, I was a little bit angry when Kirby told me to turn it off, but he had a good reason. The battery was dying, and without it there would be no way we could keep going. Sure, we can move on our own power for a little while, but we need some power source to keep us going forever.
So, there we were, in the dark and spooky forest, no light, running low on power, no light, in need of shelter, and no li
