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

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 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...
-The Moth and The Candle- (2009)Simmering in a pool of molten wax-The Moth and The Candle- (2009) by AlyssaStehle
I dance in a shimmering blaze
You come to me from the outer regions of night
On your lightest wings of powdery silk
I shed a golden light from my wavering soul
Though my heart is made of burning azure
That’s where it’s most intense
You are easily broken
Like the darkness that surrounds me
Like the shadows that cannot defeat me
Even then, you draw closer, fluttering innocently
-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.
“I think I knew that girl be
-Peppermints and Rain- (2009)Follow the leader to this sacred place-Peppermints and Rain- (2009) by AlyssaStehle
Where the high up electric wires criss-cross the perfect sky
I’ll share these super strong peppermints
And you’ll feel this ice cold fire in your mouth too
Although the aftertaste is a little bitter it’s still good
That sweet, sweet melody from just over there
You can hear it right? You can feel it in your chest can’t you?
That green, green grass that grows so far away
With all the blades individually beckoning you to come forth
You’ll go there and you’ll see
It’s the same grass that ran beneath your feet
Your heart may be dancing like a flame
Brightly, painfully, without stop, without reason
The smoke may burn your eyes and make you lose control
But it’s not from any weakness
Because even the most perfect days turn to night
That drum, that tuneless music is rumbling thunder
Dark gray clouds will take this beautiful sky away
Soon all the flames that brought you so much agony
They’ll be wa
-Newborn Star- (2009)Your lonely tear became a nameless star-Newborn Star- (2009) by AlyssaStehle
Looking at it directly it’ll disappear
Going alone to that sacred place
That dark world so far from here
Make a wish on that newborn star
Then your mind will always stay clear
That small quivering light
Far away on the other side of fear
Believe in its power to overcome night
You’ll be with the one you hold dear
Until that wonderful day arrives
I will always be near
-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
Lavender the Fairy Princess - Chapter 1Lavender the Fairy Princess - Chapter 1 by Lumenovus
I can think back to the first time I saw him. I didn’t think of the word beautiful as I do now, that came as we grew to know each other. However, I could not stop looking at the traveler that came to my father’s kingdom. It wasn’t simply because he was foreign. My eyes were just drawn to him, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to say exactly why.
I am Princess Lavender of the Luna fairies. The Luna tribe is almost the largest in the realm of Faerie, second only to the Sol tribe. If I had been born a boy, I would one day rule the Luna fairies. Instead, my cousin Braxon will rule, since I’ve no brothers. As for me? My father, King Almaden, promised me to the heir of the Sol Fairies, Prince Apollo, as a wife. A purely political move that promised to unite the two most powerful fairy tribes, as well as ruin my life.
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
-We're Falling- (2009)I felt as if stars were falling in my chest-We're Falling- (2009) by AlyssaStehle
Like before falling off the edge
Inhaling the cool spring breeze
Diving through the midnight air
This is where you are
At the far end of this labyrinth
Off the edge of this immense planet
Weight, limits, all faraway echoes
Broken or torn my wings are the same
Now we’ll say goodbye
As were pulled closer to the core of nothingness
Tumbling through this irreplaceable night
Under the moon where the air is sweet
It’s hard to believe we were once strangers
The shadow we cast erases the lonely years
Dreaming those dreams in color this time
I found my wish in the sky once more
It was reflected in your eyes all along
Sliding across a black and white photo of the entire sky
Soon we’ll plunge into the radiant orange dawn
This slow moving galaxy can’t keep up
Were slipping though the cracks in the heavens
Farther into each others hearts and dreams
Putting my hand in and pu
-My Way To You- (2009)The dark isn’t so dark-My Way To You- (2009) by AlyssaStehle
Like so many stars that line the streets
Illuminating the night just outside my window
The streetlights reflect silver on the trees
The pale lamplight that comes streaming though my window
Makes the darkness soft enough to touch
It’s like I’m in the Sea of Serenity
Casting shadows upon shadows
I want to dream but I don’t want sleep
Listening to the piano ringing in my ears
Tonight it makes me want to cry
If I could slip silently through the cracks in the floor
And out into the orange haze
I’d walk the streets lined with fallen stars
On sidewalks damp and gray
Winding through the silver shadows of this lonely night
I’d find my way to you
-Green Spring- (2009)A beautiful star flicks to life-Green Spring- (2009) by AlyssaStehle
I saw it appear
The door to a dazzling world burst open
Dreams are no longer dreams
Surrounded by spinning scenery
I’m still looking for that perfect sky
I call through the wild winds
I call for you
Let’s escape to another world
One we’ve never touched
One that’s sleeping somewhere
Far, far away in the green spring
*River Styx*River Styx, Hades bound*River Styx* by Delice1941
Silent ferryman makes no sound
His boat contains human sorrow.
Departing souls, no tomorrow.
Day and night boat departs
Shades of dead with fearful heart
Should they have a coin to pay
Passage assured, on their way.
You have no coin? journey short
No way boatman will abort
Bound for Hades, time of fear
Trembling souls, hour is near.

Crimson heartache sky
Petals of sadness
