The petalsCurled into a little ball in the corner of the room he hid from the world, His body was wracked with the emotional pain that was coursing through him as if it was his lifeblood. His body language conveyed very clearly the pain that he felt, the sight of him inspired many to give him unwanted hugs, most didn’t even realise that they were unconsciously reading this about him.
The room was earthy, with old wooden floors, walls with grey and brown wallpaper and wooden furniture. The four-poster bed in the centre hid him from view. Its silvery cover glinted in the sunlight streaming in from the window. The dresser’s draws were pulled out and ajar, clothing mottled the floor along with the few personal items he had allowed himself. With a black marker he had marked a wall with the words that passed through his mind every day. The words that made him cringe, the words that defeated him. The words that were devoid of any love.
Hidden behind the piles of clothes, the bed and the dre
Travelers, Part two Chapter oneThe black demon was covered in feathers and fur, its rear end correlated with a lion’s while his front with an eagle. He was no ordinary griffin of course for you see: His fur was as dark as night, his eyes as red as blood and his heart as cold as stone. He dove from the skies, his front legs outstretched; the talons were ready to grab the unsuspecting prey below.
The doe had being peacefully grazing, nibbling at grasses and leaves alike. Her eyes were wide and innocent, below her a fawn suckled. The young deer was just as innocent, in fact he was quite playful. With a squeak he dove away from his mother only to watch as the griffin swooped down and grabbed the female. Not caring much that he had stolen someone’s mother from them. No he was hungry and all he cared about was that. His need to fill his belly. He screeched as he took to the air, his own eagle-like screech mixing with the squeals and screams of the still alive doe. He chuckled to himself, feeling her writhing a
The needThe need to wait
The need to calibrate
The need to anticipate
Don't you see?
You cannot rush me.
Perhaps I'm not a delicate flower
Perhaps I'm a little bit more sour
I've always being a fighter.
Not a lover.
So let me embrace my need to wait.
To calibrate and anticipate.
To get used to the idea.
To become comfortable in the area.
I don't want to drown
I don't want to become bound.
I don't want to lose control
please don't take my control.
Goodbye my darlingMy darling,
I write to you in the hope that you are well
That health and happiness rules your life
And that nothing has let you down.
I wish I could say the same about myself
I’ve waited until now
Until the peak of my strife
Until I’ve being kicked out of town
I wish I didn’t have to say this about myself
For you see I have being dealt a foul
I am not tough
I feel like if I let go I’ll drown
I cannot save myself
Keep strong for they will hunt you down
They will tear and rip and shred
And only then will they begin
There’s nothing I can say to save or help you
For we are the same down our very frown
They scream for our blood that is just as red
They say we are different despite what they are seeing
My darling all I think about is you
I hope it is the same for you.
I fear for our love that is so outcast and judged
I hope our positions will never budge.
They are coming now,
I can hear the horses,
I can hear the automobiles,
I can hear the helicopters
I am so s
Travellers, part one chapter fiveTeara looked back and her head cocked to the side, Seth was lying on the ground and knocked out cold. Only moment prior the aura that they had felt so strongly had disappeared and Seth’s steps and being silenced with his fall to the ground. She was shocked, had he become the next victim of this vicious monster? TG rushed towards the fallen protector yet before she could touch him she was thrown backwards by an invisible force. The area resounded with a grown that was so menacing that Teara was seriously contemplating abandoning this ‘righteous’ mission and leaving the land to its doom. This wasn’t her job was it? No her job was to travel, to run away from things when they got too serious. Her job was not to fight things, she wasn’t a fighter she was a witch.
Just like Seth tears were forming in her eyes and wetting her fur. The dead-looking wolf was lying ahead of her sobbing and his sadness was contagious. It made her dwell on her life, on how she was a w
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
