Demon and the girl... ...The demon was sitting against a wall, sat comfortably in the night on the ledge of one of the walls surrounding his castle.

And then his peace was shattered instantly by a piercing scream.
He looked down away from the sky casually to see a shadow running over the landscape below, reeking of fear and exhaustion- the stench of a mortal filled his nostrils. His sharp red eyes looked ahead to her pursuers- and a smile formed in the corner of his mouth.
Kanine beasts covered black with three glowing red eyes and long snapping whiskers. Claws with which to tear apart flesh and bone.
The footsteps of her fleeing stopped and were replaced by close panicked breathing.
She could run no further, blocked and trapped by a wall that seemed to span for miles in both directions. She could only run to the left or right for a minute or two at the most before being caught- and eaten

i realize that we
are nothing but hell-brought fire,
the seven deadly sins
(you be lust, i'll be pride)
and a mess of upside down picture frames.
my teacher once told me
that most writers are introverts;
we drink in the world
and spew it back in ink and titles.
we tattoo words
across the inside of our eyelids--
but somewhere in the process
i must have drawn you
inside the convex of my irises,
because all i can think about
is your wind-shaken frame
flames licking across your hips.
you turn black
beneath my hands.
i can't write about that.
My Bleeding HeartMy Bleeding Heart3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My heart is bleeding
Try sleeping with a broken heart
The nails are deeper than I ever thought possible
Didn't even know there was flesh there
The air I breathe is toxic
The food I don't eat can't heal me
Everything slowly kills me
Insomnia haunts me
Pieces of my heart keep shattering my dreams
Try living a never ending nightmare
Pain and fear my faithful companions
I have made them a special place
Where they can spend the night comfortable
I swim in darkness cause my misery blinds me
I know where the light is yet I don't want it
My cries and my sobs by all go ignored
They look at me but the truth is in codes
They can't read what's written on my soul
That the love is almost over and so is the hope
What am I supposed to do? How do I get back to where I belong?
I know he's somewhere, I can feel his presence
Yet I can't hear him, I can't see him
The knowledge gives me courage, the strength to endure
I'm still not ready to lose
But there's not much you can ask of these broken p

And in the depths of this never ending twilight my mind retraces its steps,
Following the veins along your arms and across your chest.
Counting the memories as they slip between my finger tips,
Remembering when times were good
And you said you’d write a love song for every one of my tears.
But those days are long gone, now fading stars in the darkest of nights.
When our souls were light and our days care free,
We would watch the leaves as they fell from the trees.
Each one a dying light, like a firework that streaks through the night
But we built a fire so big and so bright,
An undying passion blazing in the night.
I found heaven in your eyes the murky blue like stormy skies,
The curve of your lip like a mountain range,
I could sit forever and gaze at you this way.
My piece of heaven in the depths of hell,
Your light reached out to me and healed all my scars.
When you said that every breath I take is a tiny gift to you in a miraculous way, I welled up i
Our Simple TaskWe are deepened by our dark souls, sealed within the bloody and banished scrolls.Our Simple Task2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Damned by the morning and by the light, our eyes lurk gloomily in the path of night.
We whisper tears throughout your sight, paralyzing your intelligence and fear of flight.
Alas flight is what you truly need, hence why your fate is for us to read.
In the air your body is thrown, whisked upon the dead; let your soul hear them moan.
Thrust forth and forgotten by the stain of blood, absorb the monstrosity from within the flood.
Bested by glasses and long dark coat, your flesh reeks a stench; thou shall be thrown in the moat.
Left to freeze and burn from the flames, thou is forevermore forgotten; the end of our games.

I know who you are, walking alone

And your own secret throne,

With that look in your eye,
That electric spark,
That past that you hide,

Your not at all cliched,
Double blade, a maid,

I know your past, why you hide away,
The family and friends you lost,
The price you had to pay,
It's not really your fault,
Your not that alone.
You take a long time deciding,
Your striding, colliding
Your own world your dividing
I know you begged, when you were young,
In streets at morn, dusk and dawn,
To feed yourself, I know that it stung,
Scars in your heart,

Letter to Anyone w DepressionI wrote this because I'm depressed and I don't want other people to feel like how I'm feeling, so I wrote this letter to try and give them hope.Letter to Anyone w Depression4 years ago in Letters More Like This
Yes, you. I don't know your exact troubles, but I do know one thing. Depression, even suicidal depression,is something most teens and young adults have been through. No matter what lies your depression tells you, there is always someone who loves you and that you need to live for. So, are you saying why do I have to live for others instead of for myself? Don't worry. I think everyone whose suffered from depression has had those kind of thoughts about only living because other people want them to and feeling like there's nothing they can get out of their own lives. I know it's hard to live only because others want you to,but over time forcing yourself to live for others and see the value other people have in your life will help you realize how valuable your life is. All life is precious. No matter what you think of yourself, you're not
What Monsters Haunt YouWe caught the scent of a grand monster,What Monsters Haunt You2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So we set out on its trail.
The path was wicked, but we were both broken,
So how could we ever fail?
Now you’ve gone north
When I went east;
I just kept searching
for a lethal beast.
And all the beautiful, broken, bitter beasts
That I chased and hunted and sought
Turned out to be so much more monstrous
Than we ever could have thought.
Well, I swore that I could tame them—
Instead they tore my heart to shreds;
But I suppose that’s just the way it goes
When you hunt the things you dread.
I love you, but I envy you,
Up on that higher road;
You’ve left the wilds of this world
For a place I cannot go.
I am stumbling forth, on my own—
This wicked land is no place for a lone child—
But you’ve left me alone to hunt monsters
And I’ve lost myself within theirs wilds.
And now, you see, they have bested me,
Their only pleasure is from this gain;
I knew and they knew all this time
That I was just hunting for my

Hayns. How to characterize these creatures from a far away world, Esvarra, in just a single word?
Empaths. Yes, this concept is a foundation of their culture, but it only answers “how?” and “why?” questions and not “what are they like?”
What does an empathy mean for a hayn? An ability to read minds of other's, an ability to feel their emotions. Inability to become distant from other creature's pain, great compassion toward other's suffering. A weird combination of collective intellect and individual reason.
Intellect and reason are not synonyms, at least in hayns' case. For example, let's take a computer: intellect is it's capacity, operative memory. Reason is all programs that use an electric “brain” as their main source. Intellect is capacity, reason is an algorithm. First one is impersonal, it's only responsible for complicated processes that a brain is capable of processing. Algorithms can be changed, overwritten and corrected. New pr

with words that butterfly with hope

of that quiet desperation that I feel

your averted eyes poised with concentration. It spoke
of how long I waited to build a lifetime
with you, and how in many ways I still am.
It spoke of promises that balloon as uncontrollably

it spoke of the destructive power of trust;

Let me kiss your breath away

I shall dress you in a wedding gown

Our wedding bed is covered

Stained only by the secrets
I have forced upon it now.
Sleep gently, my love

He smiled and said "okay"
I said "no, for once I mean it
This time you wont make me stay"
But bags were never really packed
And that night in our bed I lay
The taste of blood on my lips
Still remained there the next day
I screamed at him "please stop this!

Baby, I know you have a temper
I know my ways make you so wild"
"But I promise I'll try harder
Not to push your buttons so much"
With that the beast resumed control
As I quiver at each stolen touch
They scream at me to leave him
To them it's such a simple choice
But it's been so long since I've heard
Anything but my master's voice
To the point that I no longer know
My own mind or my own heart
But today he said he's sorry again
And tomorrow will be a fresh start

"I've been doing fine with them," I had said, a little surprised at the sudden suggestion. My sister had looked pointedly at the small patch of tulips that had previously encompassed the whole side yard. They were already dying, and the bulbs would have to be planted again soon. I had been planning an intense Internet search for that.
"I'd like to see you do better," I had muttered, but agreed nonetheless. I left the actual hiring to my sister, though.
Which led me to this moment, staring at a stranger on my doorstep and hoping rather desperately that there had been a mistake and he was not, in fact, the gardener my sister had hired.
"Can you… wait here, for a moment?" I asked the man. He nodded, clasping his dirt-encrusted gloves in one hand, and tugging at his ponytail with the other. I scurried inside.
