Vesper
My sweet vesper, please don't hide,
For you are my first and only guide.
I see you drawn in the sky.
In my dreams you laugh and we fly.
I must confess, my lover,
Not even stars last forever.
But one day as I will die,
My stardust takes to the sky.
You whisper, don't look, be brave,
As I search for you beyond the grave.
I won't stop climbing higher.
I long for the touch of your fire.
The universe we will scorch,
As your bright magic lights my torch.
We meet in a burst of flame,
Sweet vesper cleanse us in acid rain.

Literature
Tempest
Inside my brain is a tempest,
That swirls and spits up the sea.
Frothy white foam dances afloat,
While I contemplate you and me.
Fear often conquers my heart,
With thoughts of the vast and deep.
Inside I race the leviathan,
He threatens to steal away my sleep.
The more I fight the faster I fall,
I am tired, and I begin to drown.
I feel the weight of my leaden heart,
And the darkness drags me down.
But I can glimpse in my lonely mind,
Eyes the color of broken sky.
And when I see his lovely smile,
My heart finds the wings to fly.
I often feel no one can find me,
Lost on my ocean of despair.
But he takes my emptiness,
And makes it easier to bear.
And as the storm consumes me,
In the cries of salty tears.
He takes me up in his arms,
Chases away my haunting fears.
He calms the raging storm inside,
With the touch of his skin.
He does what no one could,
And made me whole again.

Hey everyone and welcome to my page!!

My real name is Courtney, but you can call me Torch. I'm currently a college student, majoring in Biology, and I hope to minor in Captive Wildlife. I'd like to work with animals for a career and perhaps study ichthyology (fish) or ornithology (birds).

Other than animals, I love art, music, and writing. I always like trying out new mediums and styles in my work, so a critique is always welcome! I love getting advice so I can work on excelling and growing as an artist!

Thanks for stopping by my page,
~Torch:heart:

The cold air catches in my lungs and sends a shiver up my spine. It is strange though, because I don't feel so bad; I almost feel a deep seated serenity in this place. I keep walking alone in the dark, but for once I don't feel afraid. My muffled steps on the overgrown sidewalk are all I hear in the quiet stillness on this night. The streets remain dark except the harsh orange glow of the lamps on each corner. I feel comfort when I look up, for little pinpoints of light scatter across the sky and feel familiar to me. I can close my eyes and know that those stars remain so constant in my life and provide a strange sense of solidity. I continue my trek through the solitude of the town, past the sleeping houses, the air chilling my ears. My breath continues to cloud out in front of me, and my mind wanders deeper into my musings. I feel as though I could almost wander here forever, the taste of nostalgia on my tongue. I am getting lost in this dreamlike state, but maybe it's just my fingers growing numb. It doesn't matter because for some reason I long to give in to the town's lonely slumber. It feels like home.
My sweet vesper, please don't hide,
For you are my first and only guide.
I see you drawn in the sky.
In my dreams you laugh and we fly.

I must confess, my lover,
Not even stars last forever.
But one day as I will die,
My stardust takes to the sky.

You whisper, don't look, be brave,
As I search for you beyond the grave.
I won't stop climbing higher.
I long for the touch of your fire.

The universe we will scorch,
As your bright magic lights my torch.
We meet in a burst of flame,
Sweet vesper cleanse us in acid rain.
Vesper
This is personal, and I gave it to the person I wrote it for.

Can you tell me what song I borrowed lyrics from?? Bonus points for whoever can find it!
