Mortality in the Snow by DarlingWrites Mortality in the Snow :icondarlingwrites:DarlingWrites 9 9
Seven Billion and One
Seven billion hearts are broken.
  No, I do not need to count.
There is no library of loss;
  No registry of doubts.
Seven billion hearts are broken.
  I know, I’ve said so before.
But alas, whenever a child is born
  The new heart goes to the score.
But why are so many hearts a-cracking?
  Why can’t they stay in one piece?
Is it because of the money we’re lacking?
  Is it for pain and disease?
Seven billion hearts are broken.
  Need I say so again?
It is not by the lack of funds that their broken!
  It’s by deeds done by hand, lip, and pen!
You and I! We, and they!
  We all so love our fun!
So seven billion hearts we break,
  Plus that Almighty One!
Seven billion bottles He holds,
  Filled to the brim with tears.
The saints, the sinners, the weak and the bold;
  All have wept through the years!
But how heavy the tears flow from His great eyes.
  What sadness it must be,
To see the hands of those H

As sky turns and shadows lengthen
Watch the Sky Queen lose her strength
See the hilltops tinged in blood
‘Tis time again for ghosts and love
The Night Queen rose in high ascension
The centerpiece of a grand procession
As Kings and Rulers, all her friends
March ceaselessly toward Night Sky’s end
A thousand spirits walk abroad
The mortal hearts once more to trod
An owl gives a mourning call
One heart breaks, a star does fall
And so it is on the verge of night
When all is bathed in purple light
For a brief moment in human eye
The world observes a Pause in Time

In Which the End of the World is a Metaphor
Well, they say today's the day the world will end
So I thought that we might spend today as friends
I'll break out the chips and coke
You can set the TV up
And we'll make fun of old cartoons again
When the power goes out as happens in disasters
We'll lie on the floor in the light of a storm lantern
Fight over Monopoly
Tell tales that aren't scary
We can stay up late tonight forever
And when the final light goes dark at last
The sky begins to fall and Trumpet gives its blast
We will simply sing along
Though Armageddon may rage on
We'll hold each other through the final crash
They say today's the day the world will end
And that scares me a lot I won't pretend
But when the Saints go marching in
If we go marching hand in hand
Perhaps someday my world will finally mend

ID art by my awesome brother:… :heart:

Hi! I'm Donna Darling. I'm a homeschool graduate, aspiring author, and recreational artist!

I write mostly paranormal and fantasy fiction with occasional trips into mystery or sci-fi. I love history, folklore, and creepy/mysterious/fantastical stuff; perhaps a bit too much for my own good~

My current project (in development) is "Mortality"; the episodic adventures of a young man who finds himself employed as the Grim Reaper's assistant. It'll be a dark, yet also light-hearted gaslamp fantasy with quite a bit of friendship and sweetness!

You can read a test version of the first chapter here:

I believe stories have the power to change the world! But my hope is that one of my stories can change a life. Whether I succeed or not is in God's hands.

Find me on

Feel free to peruse my gallery of mostly-story-related art, and wonder with me when/if I am ever going to improve as a visual artist!

Or you can sit through a barrage of stamps:

I fav to much by HavickArt ...but I only fave what I truly like. :heart:
Today is the first Sunday of Advent and tonight is the first night of Hanukkah, which means that around the world Jews, Catholics, and Protestants are going to be lighting candles before the Lord, and idk about you but I think that's a beautiful holiday image.

Thank you all so much for your prayers!! :la: :heart:
