Pt I

Perfection
The word so nearly incomplete
What a remarkable feat
To see the one you love
Ice cold with white feet

Perfection
A mirror to reflect the tears
Of a love you once found so dear
Remember the time
When the flower met the dust

But the time faded
Ever-so-slowly with the stars
Mystery lies clear beneath the bones
To shed of the love you replaced with fear
But when all grace came, you made yourself fame

And a million light years away
You met her, walking to your grave
A curious being
A curious feeling
Had she not been the presence
You were wishing for?

Taken from the fairy
A tale whispered so murderously
"I'll be back," her voice was so soft
So sure, "Just before the darkness hits"

So assured was her mother
As the darkness was not for another hour
And her daughter was strong
A wolf-like fighter
Why should she worry
About an unknown stranger?

Walking through the trees
A smile graces her features
Glad to be free
From the cavern she calls home

But the silence of the wind
Was broken by the disturbing hum
Of the footsteps walking so clearly
In the direction she marched towards dearly

His eyes dead with care
Marked without fear
The sibling of three
The one without glee

Carelessly, ignorantly she walked
Into the sight of the devils eyes
And for a moment
The two meet
But neither stopped
To encourage their beat

She looked away, to his dismay
But he still stared
Unprepared, not for the love he never felt
But for the beauty of the Goddess before him

It seemed as if that would be plain
No mark to settle his name
No fear to maim her glee
Just a stranger
As if that's all it would be

His Outstretched Tentative Hand
He hesitated for a second with an outstretched tentative hand. She lay motionless on the ground as if sleeping soundly. Her auburn hair lay around her and the air became colder. He didn’t mean to startle her but now she lay before him, unaware how close he was to her. Her mother had always told her to be careful and be alert while by herself. There was no way her mother would approve if she stumbled upon this scene. But he couldn’t stop his outstretched tentative hand. It was inches away from her head. He knew her mother would tear apart his soul if he dared to touch her. However, her mother wasn’t there. Her hair looked so

Temptation
"Oh but mother!" I sighed shaking my head at her as she crossed her arms giving me a stern glare. "Don't defy me, Perisia! You know very well to never cross into that land! After what happened your older sister, I couldn't bear loosing you too!" She said unfolding her arms pulling me into warm sun kissed hug, I couldn't help but hug her back. I completely understood what she meant, my sister Persephone had wandered off and…and was seduced by the god Hades. My mother,  Demeter,  was devastated but after a deal with my uncle, Zeus, he was able to free Persephone for six months. During those months my mother had lightened up and was happy.

Elle and Mias Chapter 3
Elle woke to a pounding in her head. Not again, she grumbled."Muuuunnngghhh." She ruffled her brow.  Dear god, please let this all have been a bad dream. Please.

Beautiful.

Such elegance with words and feelings so deep I believed that they did not exist anymore.

It was a strange feeling indeed to feel such warmth in my heart once more.

Thank you for writing such a piece as magnificent as this. You have found yourself a admirer in me.
