Midnight DanceYour fingers slide in between mine,Midnight Dance by EnchantedImagination
Our hands perfectly entwined.
Your arm wraps tenderly around my waist,
As you whirl me around and we trace
imaginary patterns on the floor.
Everything about you I adore,
as my head lies gently on your shoulder,
And we dance a dance that is older
Than time itself.
Your scent engulfs my mind,
And brings with it memories so refined,
Filled with pure emotion,
To you I promise complete devotion.
My senses are drowned out,
So that there is no room for any doubt,
Past worries and fears I twirled
As I fell into another world.
Hope and love fill my heart
As we perfect this dying art.
My dreams fall into place,
Made real by the smile upon your face.
And as we dance,
Our minds filled with true romance,
I mirror your movements
As we step backwards and forwards
To the slow, steady rhythm inside our heads.
As Lovers Go (a Story Prologue)As Lovers Go (a Story Prologue) by Emobella101
I'm staring at myself in the mirror now. It's strange. I look so normal. Unchanged really. It feels like on should look different. Like something so important, leaving such an effect on my life, ought to leave some physical evidence.
But no. It's the same me I've always seen. The only clear differences are the tears streak and dark circles beneath my eyes. This makes sense. I haven't slept, I cried too hard to sleep. Made myself sick.
I look into my eyes, and practicing smiling. I'm good at faking it. Frighteningly so, actually. I gaze into my own eyes intently, waiting to see a sign of my experience. Waiting to see the broken girl that I've become stare back at me. But it doesn't happen. All I see is the me. same old me. Same old me.
And the same old me is average, through and through.

You were good,
but I gave you up for what ever
I miss you now
I need you now
I want you now
I could say it again and again
You were right,
me and him did fight
You're going back,
but I won't meet you down the track
not so far atleast
We're in different continents
even if you go back
we'll still be thousands of miles apart
I scarred you when I did
because of what I did
because of all I fibbed
I can apologize over,
over and over
but I was around you long enough to know
you wouldn't trust an old lover
I made a mistake
I didn't know what was at stake
I know I messed you up
I just want to try and fix you up
You might not see this... Never
but in my heart is where you'll always be... Forever
I'm afraid of it now more than I ever was,
because when you're around I don't need a drug to sore high
Our MomentShe lay there in his arms for what she knew would be the final time. The last few moments that would be truly theirs. The warmth of his skin, the look in his eyes, the feel of his touch, every one of these she would miss. He too looked on her for his final time, as they sat listening to a distant aeroplane in the sky. The room was dark, only illuminated by a low, flickering street light outside, its mumbling buzz just audible over their heavy breathing. She moved her head slightly, resting her head on his bare chest. They began remembering all the moments they had shared in this city. The day they met; his asking for directions to classes three years ago. The time not long after that he'd plucked up the courage to ask her on a date, his was so nervous he tripped over his words so many times she had to ask him to repeat himself. The first time they shared a kiss atop of the abandoned church on the hill, its bell tower a perfect view over the city. She could still remember the cold nightOur Moment by maxaxe

Lions on AcidCake consumes cob:Lions on Acid by axes4six
it's a natural order from the deities of tobacco.
Faith dies when it won't come true.
It's hard to tell what came and what we simply never knew
If I saw you right now, I'd pretend we were red soda again.
I'd tell you stories about ponies and plants and perfume and
I'd lick the sticky, icky essence of your mind. It's rather
that you didn't kill yourself
Because, we are men.
That means that if you were dead,
I'd dance around in a kilt like a man waiting for
cannons and barets
and time to reverse so that
You and I were just lonely like lions and
did you know they were lonely?
Kings and things….

It gets too cold when we remember
that we may not be human.
I don't feel like I fit the description.

Our Island of Trees, Part 1Our Island of Trees, Part 1 by maxaxe
"I never wanted any of this to happen."
Two school boys sat on their secondary school playing fields, enjoying the warm, if not rare, British summer. Both around fifteen years old, they have known each other longer than either of them cared to remember, neither one had really changed all that much since they'd met all those years ago in primary school, both remained immature, unsure and relatively uncaring of the future and most of all concerned only with their own enjoyment. The first, Aaron, was the smarter of the two, although brilliant, he rarely used it, only in times that he could get a laugh from his student audience would he be bothered to tap into his mind. He was tall and well built, he'd been asked many a time to play on sports teams throughout his school years, and declining them all under the simple notion that it would require time and effort, only the former would he have in abundance. He was most noted by his other classmates as being a comic and clown, but one that w
Poetry Commissions Open, October 2013Greetings and Salutations, Everyone!Poetry Commissions Open, October 2013 by Jeanneau-La-Pin
Taking a page from my youngest daughter, who is also a member on this rather interesting site, I have also decided to start offering literary commissions, in my case: Poetry.
I have been writing in general for a good many years, and even longer where my poetry is concerned, having published a book of original French poetry just a few years ago (and I will post the cover to and Amazon.com link within my gallery a bit later, for anyone interested within purchasing it - Those who can read/understand French, that is ).
A few, more recent examples are already within my gallery, and I will place here, as well.
There is honestly no form I do not or cannot do, except perhaps Limericks, I suppose.
My information is as follows:

I FellI fell down into a hole of despair,I Fell by HakunRyozaku
and felt a pain that no one can bear.
Lost in the dark and stuck without a way,
I feel less pain the longer I stay.
My feelings and emotions are slowly numbing,
my hopes and my dreams are already crumbling.
I fell down and now I can't get back up,
now all I can see is a half empty cup.
Lost my strength and lost my will,
all I can do now is just stay still.
I look up to see the bright eyes,
staring at me while my soul slowly dies.
One step and another yet I still can't see the light,
another step, and I fall back into the night.
Here is a darkness I cannot stand,
my hope is holding on by the last strand.
Someone save me before I completely lose my way,
please don't leave me here for another day...
-No Reason- a short story-No Reason- a short story by AlyssaStehle
“Iris where on earth did those marks on your neck come from?”
“They came from a dream I had.” It was true, but my mom wouldn’t believe me. I hardy believed it myself. She tore apart my explanation as I drank the sweet pink milk leftover from my cereal.
“That’s impossible you probably got bit by a spider.” Mom didn’t eat breakfast with me. I was usually about finished by the time she woke up.
“I got bit by a girl.”
“Come on put your shoes on, we got to get going.” She completely ignored what I said. That happens a lot. Not just with my mother, just with anyone. Whenever I tell them or show them something strange they ignore it. Sometimes I wonder if it upsets them.
It was raining the morning I woke from that dream. The rain on the windshield created translucent blue gray shadows on my lap.

The old Victorian-styled manor loomed ahead. Anaiz grimaced at its mile-high wrought iron gates, clearly showing her disappointment; the pillars that supported the structure were made of obsidian stone. The massive land was surround on nearly all sides by woodlands. "This is the place? It's bad enough that I barely know anything about this guy..." She sighed and pushed open the creaky gates, trudging up the twisted beaten path the led to the manor. Upon closer inspection, she could see some Gothic embellishments. She looked down the multi-functional watch on her wrist and pressed a button; a small greenish holograph of the manor appeared from the watch's face. "Ugh, this is the place, alright."
"Ah, so you're the Red Lady I've heard so much about. Finally we meet! I see you are true to your namesake..." came a male voice that chuckled a little from behind her as she was raising her hand to the lion-head door knocker. Almost immediately she moved to the side and slid
-Only Me- a short story-Only Me- a short story by AlyssaStehle
I can't just exist. But I can't live either. I was never meant to live in a world like this. I'm sure of that. Where is the reality I desperately seek? Where is the end of my dream? When I wake up, will I want to go back to sleep?
I don't think I was ever born. I don't remember anything but pain. The pain I cause others. The pain inside my mind. Like a headache that never fades. If I reach out for help I drag that helping hand into the shadows. Into unknown darkness and torment. Nightmares. Perhaps I am a nightmare within a large beautiful dream.
It must be a beautiful dream. Because I met someone from outside, someone pure. Though the world is twisted and cruel she kept her sadness inside, it bloomed again and again within her soul. She came to me with a smile.
I can't remembe
-Kindness- (2009)As I step on the withered broken dreams-Kindness- (2009) by AlyssaStehle
Abandoned on the side of the road
I think that this fragile existence is at its limits
I know you don’t care if it’s broken or crushed
But I just want it to stop raining
I stretch my short limbs hard as I walk
I was messing around when I sneaked in
To that secret place deep in another’s heart
That silent flash of lightning from far away
That kindness out of the corner of my eye
What you so innocently require of me
Is something that cannot be fulfilled
That’s what makes the rain fall so coldly
Like the water droplet on that pure emerald leaf
It’ll fall as soon as I touch it
Shouldn't Really Love YouShouldn't Really Love You by Lanton
Shouldn’t Really Love You
26/7/14 (original lyrics 27/5/96)
Ten to seven felt so wrong
Even so my love was strong
I just wanted you to know
Didn’t expect the way it would go
All my friends they got to you
Told you things that were not true
Seems that they drove you away
Never had my chance to explain
It was many years ago
And we weren’t very old
I could take you not being mine
As you’d still give me a smile
Time went by and we grew up
Seems we’ve found our own true loves but
Truth reveals that time to time
There’s a ghost caught in my mind
Seems that what really got to me
Was that I was never free from
All the guilt they made me feel
Before I saw it wasn’t real
Wanted to apologize
See forgiveness in your eyes
What they said didn’t come from me
Back then I guess you couldn’t see
Truth was I cared for you
It’s a song for the truth

“What is this hunk of junk doing on my ship?” Zuke, Capitan of the Panther, pointed at my treasure in a very un-ladylike fashion.
“But she’s an AME unit, there aren’t many left now days. She’s a rare find.”
“She can’t speak or walk! What use is she?” Zuke was now standing in the doorway with her hands on her hips. I had Ame’s back panel open and I was tinkering with various wires and parts that had been in need of some repair.
“I’m working on it. She’ll at least be able to walk.”
“Whatever just don’t forget your other duties.” She turned sharply and left. I like Zuke for the most part. She’s very generous and has a strong sense of justice for an outlaw. She’s a bit over forty but she has been taking illegal anti-aging tablets that have left her lookin
Stars of Evoney Chapter 2 The side of Kayden’s slightly tan face now had a fresh red mark shining on it. Glasses a skew, Kayden turned around slightly surprised to see a familiar face.Stars of Evoney Chapter 2 by TheXFilesLover
Wisps of dark amber hair slightly covered her milk browns eyes, which began to soften in recognition.
“Oh, it’s you” she said in her low rough voice. She smiled maliciously at him out of her pale lips waiting for a response.
“Always great to see you too, Carrie” Kayden said back. He should’ve known it was her. “Who else did he always happen to run into on a daily basis in Toronto?” he asked himself sarcastically.
They both laughed and she joined him at the table sitting across from him. Carrie was a life-long friend of Kayden’s, who had recently moved to Toronto. Kayden wasn’t surprised that Carrie smacked him with a newspaper. Carrie could be fu

He felt a light breeze as he walked along the brightly lit streets of Toronto. Kayden missed the country area he had grown up in for one specific reason because he could sit in the open fields in the night air. He could count the millions of stars that contained hope and, possibilities. With the extremely bright lights of Toronto stars were no longer visible. This distracted people from finding the truth behind the stars.
Kayden's digital alarm clock lay crooked on the shelf set for 10:00am. Though there was little need for the alarm this morning as something small and, fluffy lay across his neck. He woke up and almost had a heart failure assuming, some rabid animal had broken in his apartment.
Kayden jumped quite harshly and, was half right.
"I almost just flung you off the bed and, you're still staring at me." Kayden muttered to his 3 pound lop eared rabbit. He thought about how much the bunny had probably pooped on his bed too while he was sleeping. The alarm cloc
Men Of Gem: Country Lovers Hearts Chapter OneMen Of Gem: Country Lovers Hearts Chapter One by Aisiko
The sound of country music wafted through the air, steady clacking of the pool cues against the balls on the billiard table echoed mixing with the voices of the partons. People entering and exiting the tavern chose to enjoy their moment together in the small ranching town. Filled to the brim with people traveling from the nearby city of Gem, Texas to have a drink, one patron in particular stared deep into the glass of whiskey running her thin fingers against the cool glass.
She chose to leave the law office during the reading of her grandfather’s will; He had not left her a thing. She was as many people told her a lost cause.
A person, whom had blown the only chance at having a life that many women dreamt of having, To be waited on hand and foot by a house staff . The life she had grown accustomed to be the one that her stepmother had chosen to live.
She did not want this, glancing up at the men and women enjoying the atmosphere. she held back the urge to dr
-My Spring- (2009)How could I forget that ageless song?-My Spring- (2009) by AlyssaStehle
My footsteps may have been washed away by the midnight rain
But they sill exist somewhere on the spring breeze
Along with many other un-awakened dreams
Looking out as far as I can see
The word’s colors begin to run together
Barefoot in the rain, welcoming the new season
All alone on this street, shimmering with inspiration
Happiness is dancing all around me
I can’t be lonely, I won’t be sad; never again will I feel those things
I just want to walk, even if the rest of the world is fast asleep
Somehow I know this night is not for sleeping
Someone else will count my sheep for me
On this street of no return
I’ll sing that love song one more time

When summer cast golden glow
Weeping willows, river side
Cast gentle shade, punts could glide.
Mild, quiet summer day
Strawberry smell and smell of hay
Silken dress on a boat
Shaded by parasol, afloat.
Today loud music rocks river
Weeping willows really weep
T/shirt slogans, blue jean rule
Now we’re noisy but very cool.

fallen angel lost in the windThe angel has fallen,fallen angel lost in the wind by kairi-the-bat
The cracks have appeared,
Theres no way to stop,
What we all feared,
The pendulum swings,
Time passes by,
Without her snow white wings,
No longer shall she fly,
A heart full of cracks,
A soul took away,
Love brought her down,
And blew her heart away...
