Champion's RefusalYou dangle everything I ever wantedChampion's Refusal in Free Verse More Like This
Just maddeningly out of my reach.
You don’t know what I’d do to get it,
Minus you slipping me that drugged peach.
You think I can love you
After all your trickery and lies?
Think twice about it, Goblin King,
Look straight into my cruel eyes.
“Fear me, love me, and I will be your slave?”
Sure, maybe in your dreams.
Isn’t this one of those?
But nothing has appeared as it seems.
I can’t possibly love you
When my heart’s quaking with fear
And I don’t want to remain
Another minute, let alone a year.
Go back to your castle,
I’m taking the child;
And you can wallow in your misery,
Remembering how you I so beguiled.

The target is carefully, meticulously selected.
"That one!" they seem to humbuzzwhisper.
The newbie is sent to perform the deed, though she is
Well-aware that it will be the last thing she ever does.
She lines up her weapon carefully; a misfire could mean
A cruel scolding and starvation courtesy of the queen.
What a shame, she thinks; the target is so tantalizing.
She strikes, and the glory that she did not fail overwhelms
Her small body before she falls to the ground, lifeless.
Like the smallest and most tender of intimate kisses,
Placed on the tip of her ring finger.
She screams once, a natural response, but the brain
Takes a little longer to react.
'Foreign substance' it reads.
Then after quick further examination, 'contaminant'.
She is oblivious to the toxin winding through her veins,
Clotting as it sees fit.
The venom reaches the lung

And you kept me
in your ironclad grip
even though there was
nothing to salvage.
I feared freedom would
never arrive, never save
me from that dark pool.
Someone more exalted,
wiser in all aspects
and a far more experienced
innocent than you came
to reach a glowing white
hand of redemption out to me
when I had almost suffocated
under the premise that you
would someday return
to the way you were.
Once out of the mist,
I saw what was concealed
Behind the facade I clung
to for far too long.
A demon, not a clever one,
One that did not know enough
to keep up the charade, but
knew enough to keep me trapped
in that contortionist's web
of hopeless blind devotion.
Demon, though you ruined me,
You were an excellent teacher,
and now I am wiser:
Never trust a demon
in the guise of an angel.
Angels are too rare to be true;
but once uncovered, adhere to
that angel and never let them
If an angel becomes disenchanted with
a mortal, then perhaps there is no
Unseen BeautyHow can I describe the joyUnseen Beauty in Romance More Like This
That crawls up my spine and
Ignites in my brain when I see
The most beautiful creature ever
Do not think so, but then again,
Have never seen yourself clearly.
When a self-image is viewed,
See only despair, disgust, demon,
An object, a thing, to be destroyed.
When I gaze upon the same visage,
I see hope, radiance, seraphim,
More of a man than most men ever are,
A person to be celebrated and loved.
Choose to ignore the God-given gift
That has been bestowed upon the chosen
A gift that normalities may never possess
But all I can focus on is that gift,
On shaping my own variation and knowing
That my gift can never be as fine-tuned as yours.
Believe that no one could ever love someone like
Yourself, that a monster has no real chance at
Happiness and love.
I disagree. If
Would only look beyond the outward appearance
And concentrate on the inner contents,
Would discover how many women consider themselves

All the hidden pain, deceit and lying;
New naive lovers do not see horror
Nor will they take note of their state: dying!
Being with a beloved is akin
To being wounded with a Vorpal sword;
To having a poker hot on your skin:
But you don't mind, it's of your own accord.
When you examine the depths of their eyes,
Can you find some semblance of malice or hurt?
You may not see it, but please be advised:
It is there lurking, so please be alert!
Do not ever fall in love's strong chokehold;
Or else you can consider your soul sold!

Our celestial neighbor, the red planet, Mars goes mad.
Not its fault
Rewind 20 yrs:
The 2026UB313 meteor was distracted from its original target, the earth, to hit Mars in a massive explosion. The meteor was spotted in the year 2026 and hence the name. Its trajectory had alarmed the scientists as it was in collision norms with the Earth. The calculated impact time was 10 years.
Ever since the 2012 doomsday was successfully averted, the space had grown hostile towards the earth. As many as 100 meteorite crashes were reported in 2yrs. Our sun showered more cosmic radiation than ever through the depleting Ozone layer.

And by the time the spectral analysis confirming a moving object was taken seriously, it was almost too late. There was not time to check the composition of the meteor, without which blowing it up was not practical. The onl

The three of them remained silent for a while, considering their own train of thoughts. Batman found the urge to explain everything and clear his side, but he realised he would have to do that compromise and explain all through his life if he started it. That was something his ego would prevent him from doing. Revealing his true self to Lisa was an option he wanted to consider only as a last resort. But he certainly owed the lady an apology.

You'll make me give it all in to the original sin
I know it'll just happen all over again

But until then I just guess you'll do
Because one of these days this habit will die

Arrows rained down by the hundreds. It did not take long for Artemis to rally her Amazon sisters and take a full frontal assault against their attackers. By the hundreds, fully armored men stormed the shores of Themyscira. They wore battle armor similar to the Amazons and seemed to have the same kind of warrior's fire the Themysciran women had as well.
"Amazons!" Artemis shouted over the noise of rushing war. "Attack!" she commanded with her sword pointed towards the enemy. She pulled on the golden reins of the Pegasus and flew directly towards the heart of the enemy's swarm. With a great swipe of her blade Artemis took the heads of four of the male warriors clear off.
A wave of angry women followed her down her path with their swords raised. By the hundreds the Amazons stormed into battle. But this was not an epic battle like David versus Goliath. This was a war of the century! While one man would fall on the battle grounds, he took with him two Amazons.

Somehow mercy is shining bright
Reflected in her eyes
I'll never know what she sees in me
What I see in her is pure
I taste the truth upon her lips
She will always be mine

I am not worthy of this place
Blessings I don't deserve
There is no joy surpassing passion
And now despite all my sins
I hold eternity with me
Crying as I smile
My Angel has fallen to me!
Within my arms
Then by my kiss
