The Lady Next Door

She sits and waits She does not know for what She dreams of yesterday Of love and laughter And a life full of smiles You can see it in her eyes The mist of tears shinning true When you call out to her And she looks up at you She is well past her prime An old lady most would say Just waiting to die When the door opens Her grandkids have come by She is full of...Read On

Monday

Give me strength...

Monday. I’ve overslept and I’m running late…again. Great! Breakfast done, I abandon the dishes and turn my back on the mess. The mangled remains of toast and jam, the spilt milk and the sticky fingerprints will have to wait. I have a job to get to. Child no. one, released from her high chair, springs to her feet and bounds across the room. She ricochets off the furniture,...Read On

I Want To (Fall in Love With You)

I want to fall in love with you I know that’s what you want too Yet still I hold back and hesitate On becoming fully intimate As much as my heart and body say It will be fine; it’ll be okay. Still, though, I cower and hide From openly standing at your side. In this supposed enlightened age There are those that we will enrage For our kind of love is still too often seen As vile and...Read On

Unaware Alpha

Demon is a young she wolf and this is her story through her eyes.

Chapter 1, Loner It had been a long hard winter. There wasn't much around to catch or even scavenge from others. Not that I would steal someone else’s meal unless I had too. I had been a lone wolf for as long as I could remember. I didn't even know why I was on my own. Weren't we meant to be in a pack or group of some sort? Although I had come across other wolves, some friendly and some...Read On

The Years Slipping Away

My mind is as it was when I was a child, so young, and yet so old. Recalling now the way I thought is the way I think now when I am old. Is this true of all, of everyone today in this distant point in the future, today, is this true, that we all were now as we were so young. Does this mean I am a child at heart, or at mind, or am I a fluke, or an oddity at work in the world  I...Read On

Butterflies

Rhyme

I once thought I was a poor man, With barely enough to eat. The roof above my head it leaked, A dirty floor beneath my feet. One day I went out on a walkabout, I walked all around the town. I saw how others were living. Let me say, it was quite profound. You see, what I saw as poor, It did not even compare. And of one old man I met on my way, Said life for him was fair....Read On

Forest of fire

Rising high above me, I’m at your mercy tonight, As my forest of fire Is meeting your delight, With long satin tresses, Wondrous orbs are rising, A sacrifice made holy, Expanding my horizon, Tasting the sweet nectar, My soul is rising higher, I offer you my potion, An angel in a choir, Time is passing slowly, Fingertips so tender, Building my emotion, Sounds of sweet surrender, Way out in...Read On

Crushed

I was feeling really low one night

Fallen upon blended knees, she wails her sorrow into the frozen night air. Why does she bother, she does not know. The more she bares her heart to another and is rejected, a tiny part of it shrivels and dies. Till one day nothing will be left alive. She will be cold as ice and hard as stone. She feels damaged, broken, beaten and torn. She has much love to give but no one will accept...Read On

Death, As Told by a Dead Person

Death may befall you at any moment. Be careful.

My mind is blank, As I write this verse, though it would be, I'm in a hearse. I was pushed in a stank*, and left to rot, and when I was found, I was covered in trot. A terrible woe has befallen me, and I don't think anyone will come. Not even family. I float around and I see my beau, goodness, it's her! She's sad, but gorgeous, and wearing faux fur. I've left her behind, the only woman who...Read On

The Best That You Can Be

"Why are you so hard on me all the time?" she asked, tears glistening in her eyes. "I always do my best. I work hard and get good grades and all that shit, but you never seem to be satisfied." She swiped angrily at the tears that were sliding down her cheeks. "I don’t believe that I am any harder on you than I need to be." I said gently. "All I ever ask of you is to never let...Read On

The Feast of Saint Valentine

A vow, once made, must not be broken.

Vast distances awash in silvered dust, Across the sandy dunes the horses trot. Late coming now but soon to tarry here,  Ere nighttime falls his band of men encamp.  None dare to speak to him of memories past. This feast day of Saint Valentine arrived In gusting weather, blowing winds most ill.  Now as the daylight dies the party rests. Endearing looks, enticing eyes of green.  Emotions...Read On

From underneath

I'll numb the pain till I am made of stone ~Evenescance

I'm under the bed. An old shirt in hand. The scent welcoming and strong. I close my eyes. Block out the lies. Pretending nothing is wrong. The shirt dries my tears, That nobody hears. Wishing once again I was home. Holding you near, Calming my fear. Even though I am actually...Read On

Gruntled

Sometimes you just have to dismiss a dis. Dissatisfied? Is something amiss? What's so good about D.. I.. S..? I think getting rid of it would be for the best. Displeased could be changed with such ease. From sad to happy would be just a breeze. Discontented would mean so much more, If you dismissed the dis and this I implore. Discompose lets chaos reign. But just shortening that...Read On

A Promise Broken

A promise broken by a so called friend

Heart torn, dreams shattered, hopes dashed. Despair and loneliness slowly seeping in. Chest pain, brain numb, anger rising Lies and half truths told, seemingly endless. Bitter, hate, lashing outward to you. You feel bad but not as much as I. You swore you would be there, And you're not. You said nothing would get in the way, Yet... It did. We made a promise, a pact,...Read On

The Opposites

Chapter 5 - Unusual As the days went by, I had improved the control of my power, and also started to train in some fighting skills. It was way too much for me to learn in such a short period of time. I only had a few weeks before my uncle decided to go up front with his plan. We decided to go out tonight and see if we could find any kind of information. “Are you ready Sariel?” I...Read On

Agony

The following poem is inspired by Real Life Events ;-)

Hitting your thumb with a hammer Is liable to make you curse But stubbing your unprotected toes Is likely to make you swear even worse You feel such a bloody idiot For being so stupidly clumsy As you moan and writhe on the floor In unimagined agony Until the pain has abated To a level more tolerable You are little more than a baby Gibbering like a fool When you’re...Read On

Never Again

To the truth, I bare my soul...

It's deja vu, but not at all the same. How can that be? Almost three years ago I almost lost you. You had been sick for months, so our life had been strained, I needed you more than you were capable of giving. We were soul mates, the couple everyone was envious of, and yet we threw it all away. Our connection had eroded weakening our commitment. I was lonely, feeling lost and immersed...Read On

fly with the fairies

It was not a normal day at school. I knew something had to go wrong. Everything was going way too good. Close to the 3 o'clock bell the phone rang. It was the office telling me I had basketball duty that evening. Great... Oh well, only a couple of hours. No big deal, right? Sure. I knew it, just knew something would happen. Then it did. After I was in the gym for maybe 10 minutes, and...Read On

There's Always A Way In

With the blackout having hit the cottage a few minutes earlier, Ariel propped the flashlight on the kitchen counter, opened the oven and peeked in anxiously. She hoped the cookies she had made survived the power outage. They certainly smelled great. Nothing like freshly baked cookies to warm up a cold, rainy night. She took out the baking tray and set it aside on the counter before turning...Read On

Out Of The Woods

It's all my fault. No matter how much I blame the GPS it was still my mistake. Trusting technology over common sense got us into this situation. Damn! I can call it a situation, but it's more serious than that would ever convey. We're lost. Stranded and freezing. We could soon die, if we don't do something. If I don't do something. It's all my fault. The sandy surface of the California...Read On

Into the wind

What the wind took... wont ever be the same

Every time things seem serious, we pull away. Yet we know nothing is serious. nothing in this world is real. Meeting you left me in a dreamlike state. always in a daze... then I woke. Scared, with a monster under my bed, shivers up my spine. Being with you will just fade away, into yet another dream. Let's cast this into the wind and live once again....Read On

Information Gathering

Two teenagers investigate the site of a meteorite strike and find more than they expected

Rebekah had never really noticed how quiet Alex Wolfe was before. But then again, she found herself thinking, if he had been less quiet she would probably have noticed him more before now. And then there would have been no reason to think he was so quiet, because he wouldn't be. There was probably a name for things which looped back around like that. She'd have to get online when she got home...Read On

Beautiful Dreams - Chapter Two

Chapter Two Walking into the house, I step out of my shoes, shut the door behind myself and start toward the stairs to my room. “Kayla, is that you? Can you come in to the lounge room please?” my mother calls out to me. “Sure, Mum,” I say, walking into the lounge room, bags still in hand. “Am I in trouble?” I see my mum sitting in her favourite spot in the lounge. Dad was...Read On

Delayed Arrival

Those heartstopping few moments many parents experience...

It was touch and go. The new young mother clung desperately to the new young father’s hand, neither daring to look at the other. The air crackled with tension. Medical personnel rushed around in a coordinated ballet of practiced routine. Barked orders were heeded without question. Every person in the small delivery room knew their role. They were masters and experts. It was always a...Read On

Dear Nicole, It’s hard to explain how you got these letters since I don’t have your address but the time will come when you will find out how they came to you. I know what you have been through. No one your age or any age should have...Read On

Elementals Chapter 20

The final chapter in the Elementals story.

Chapter Twenty Noah looked down at his map and sighed. “You know,” he said, “I don’t know if I am going the right way or not.” “And you’re asking me for directions?” Primordious asked. “Well I mean I never have been to Saeyune before, remember I went straight from Uryaen to Aeon Torris. Not many magicians do that you know. Still this map has none of the roads marked out on it; it’s...Read On

Cricket: Lone Wolf Part 05

Marcia explores outside the castle and finds something is missing.

As the sun rose, its light poured brightly on Cricket's bed into her happy face. She slept happily dreaming of the dress in the milliner's shop. She wanted to return and buy it or at least try it on. Her hazel eyes shone brightly as she got out of bed to face another day. She twirled on the floor imagining she wore the dress. As she twirled and spun, she hummed the song "I Feel Pretty"...Read On
