Sweetest Most Beloved Melody.Slowly my hand creeps around your stone cold marble neck. Your lips part and your eyes open as my mouth curls into a smile. I press my cheek against your silky brown locks and whisper delicately into your ear. Time seems to have slowed as I continue this act, only the sweet music keeps its steady pace. My whispered words turn into hummed song. A lullaby. My eyes glitter with anticipation, free from fear or guilt, as you pull away. I watch as you take the finals steps and turn back to set your eyes upon me. Time has picked up, leaving the song behind and intertwining with our heartbeat. I rejoin the music and hum the final bars of our most beloved lullaby. I embrace you as the melody fades, this is the final line. And with the piano, we will die.Sweetest Most Beloved Melody. by oox-anime-xoo

"For years now, I've watched her come and go. Sometimes here, sometimes not." Taiki thought to himself, staring out of the window of the classroom. "I've never been able to say how I really feel."
'Hey ' Daichi whispered from nearby. 'Are you going to come to the camping thing this weekend?'
'Camping thing?' He whispered back.
'Yeah to celebrate Aoi getting the part in that play the Drama club are doing.'
'Oh yeah, of course, should I pack the tent ' he stopped as the class fell silent. Slowly he turned his head towards the front of the class. The teacher staring right at him. 'Do you have some input towards this lesson Taiki?'
'Then I'll ask you to be quiet please.' she smiled and went back to dictating from the book and writing on the board.
'You know you really couldn't have asked at a worse time!' Taiki shouted, his mouth full of food. The four of them all sat on the roof of the school. 'You ask me in the middle of a lesson, that I
Beyond it allYou touch me as gently as possible, afraid of my glass skin breaking apart.Beyond it all by PleasurelyPainful
You get lost in my ocean eyes. Diving in, until you're in the deepest depths.
You run your fingers through my golden field of hair, and try to bring me back to this world.
Melting the darkness away.
Slowing the chaos down, if only for a moment.
Filling my world with light once again.
Captivating me, with all that you do.
Kissing my scars, allowing them to dissolve into nothing, as if they never existed.
You lightly place your hands on my heart. Your touch has the power to heal these wounds .
Hold on to me tight, as if I'll disappear, because soon I will...
I'll run into the stars and beyond the moon, you trailing behind as we fly, High above the universe.
We can run over the sun, around Jupiter and back to Venus. They'll never catch us.
We'll run until we find our own world, it's just beyond Pluto. The highest of high points.
Do you know where it is? It's there, whenever we kiss, touch, love.
NOT COLDI was running down the stairs, when I bumped against this familiar stranger. I said sorry, but all I got was a cold glare. Who does he think he is? I said sorry. Oh, never mind.NOT COLD by crookedbitterfingers
"Hurry! Next class is about to start and it's on the other side of the campus!" Jenna yelled bitchily in her high-pitched annoying voice.
"Coming!" I exclaimed, as I rushed down faster. Jenna's a friend. Well, almost. We have four classes together so we kind of walk together to next classes. "Who's that guy again? In history class, the quiet one who aced the test earlier?"
There it goes again, that glued smile and the waves to everyone we pass by. Is she running for council president or something? Haven't heard of that. "You talking to me?" she said and continues the waving thing.
"Uh, yeah. Who else?"
"What was that again?" she asked as she tilted her head.
"I said who was that "
"Oh, hi Jenn and what was your name again?" this Clark guy just popped out of nowhere and barged in.

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...
The Reaper's LootOf war, of war this day I write,The Reaper's Loot by Mordial33
Of battle and blood that is shed in the night,
Of cries and screams of blood and pain,
I wish this night to become day's light.
The pain, the pain of the killing pursuit,
The scars etched upon berserker brutes,
The hate and fear of fire and lead,
I see the fruit of the reaper's loot.
Oh fire, oh fire and destruction's start,
Oh copper and lead seeking the foes' hearts,
Oh flesh and bone you sought to rend,
And as their souls depart,
The devil sees your new art.
CuredHave you ever loved so unconditionally it hurts.Cured by born-master-poet
Watching your love go through pain after pain.
Listening to the complain, holding them while they cry,
Silently plotting to get revenge on who caused it,
But still just sitting there because all you could ever want
Is their happiness and to destroy that would destroy you.
I have, once, my best friend, though she was so much more,
At least to me, I used to be to her but she lost it.
She never told me so I always held out romantic hope.
It was dumb and people tried to tell me but I was blind,
I couldn't imagine her giving up on true love.
We talked last night and she unclouded my eyes.
Revealed the true nature of the world that was lost to me.
That breaking point was one I never wanted to reach.
I never wanted to feel that pain of nothing.
I don't care anymore, I don't feel anything but pain.
My heart is always beating hard and steady,
Against my chest making it excruciating to keep going.
She helped me get over my ridiculous obsession wit

-Sour Limelight- a short story-Sour Limelight- a short story by AlyssaStehle
I didn’t want to be in the spotlight. I was cast out onto the stage, naked and vulnerable. But I was the main attraction. For who? For what? There was no one watching. No one is ever watching me. The circus tent was empty and black. The cannons still oozed colorful smoke into the abyss. Purple and blue tangled on the rising air. When did the spotlight find me? As soon as I dreamed of her.
The second, the very instant Mab entered my dreams some enormous spotlight flicked to life. I’ve paid very dearly to be here center stage. I paid with the coinage of my very soul. My eternally weeping soul caused Mab to appear before me. She wiped the tears from my cheeks, took the kisses from my lips, the words from my mouth, the thoughts from my head, the beating of my heart, and the blood from my veins. She drank it all down. If I said no or tried to resist I’m sure it woul
-Only Tonight- a short story-Only Tonight- a short story by AlyssaStehle
Sometimes I think I hate everyone. I hate everything. Then, ten minutes later I’m in love with everyone. I love everything. I wonder what’s wrong with me. One hour after midnight and I left my glass slippers behind in a far off puddle. I left my coffin gaping open, sucking in the foul basement air. I guess I’m not like Cinderella at all. I’m not waiting for any prince. I’m looking for a light snack.
I’m a hungry hunter. Strolling barefoot through the lonely park that breathes softly with trembling branches and the smell of rain. The sky is hanging low with swirly gray clouds. Ah, I wish it’d rain some more! Crying sky, crying hearts. They are all delicious to me. Right now, I love everything. I’m even skipping a little bit. I’m excited for some reason. For no reason. Maybe, it’s my pretty yellow dress dancing aroun
-If I Could-That drop of sugar rain could not quench my thirst-If I Could- by AlyssaStehle
And could not revive the dried up words
That had crusted over like blood on my lips
Liquid gold collects on the windowpane
One drop at a time
If I could lay by your side right now
My mind would easily slip into a soft dreamless sleep
Surely, this melody would collect in our ears
And echo through our minds
While dawn floods the room with blue and gray
You’ll be waiting for me when I wake
-Pure White-The storm of youth has taken its toll on this building-Pure White- by AlyssaStehle
Reaching out trough the broken window
Pink scars burst open
The mild winter breeze explores my open wounds
A gentile kiss of ice simmering in the bloodshed
Standing still, I was mistaken for a mannequin
Did it frighten you when you saw me move?
I was reaching for something in a far corner of the sky
But I’ve already lost that dream
Solitude is something of a familiar thing
The ringing in my ears is amplified by the stinging silence
I’m too young to accept this reality
I’m too old to believe in that fantasy
The shadows in your room are blue, that much I know
The passage of time is a cruel thing
Anticipation turns to dread
My skeleton is pure white I’m sure
Men Of Gem: Country Lovers Hearts Chapter OneMen Of Gem: Country Lovers Hearts Chapter One by Akihabara-Butterfly
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

Chapter 8 Fallout!
Neither Joe nor Hump could sleep a wink that night. The adrenaline rush from the night’s events felt like it could last forever. They wondered if this was their future, to combine their love of music with the gospel of newspeak. If newspeak could be taken to other towns, indeed, to the entire realm of toad, what a stroke of genius that would be! It was while they were fantasizing about all that might be that Joe suddenly got quiet. Hump asked:
“Hey bro’, you okay?”
“Yeah, I was just thinking about Winky and all
our family and friends back in Anura. I can’t
help but wonder what the king and queen
would think of all of this. I sure wouldn’t want
my adopted brother to think badly of us, ya know?”
“Think badly of us? C’mon dude. I believe with all
my heart that they would be behind us one-hundred percent!
After all, isn’t that what fam

Chapter 7 The Concert
Joe woke up Friday morning with nervous anticipation. Only a few days ago he and Hump had had an awkward moment with Malinda’s father. Tonight was the big concert, yet the sky on this morning was cloudy and foreboding. Joe wasn’t superstitious in the least, but he couldn’t deny what appeared to him to be ominous signs of impending doom. Hump, of course, laughed it off. He said:
“Now look Joey, we been planning this thing for a week.
Ain’t no way we canceling now, dig? Besides, we got
our catalog of songs down pat. We ready to go, dude!”
To which Joe replied:
“Dude, we got our catalog down pat? What catalog? We got
three songs! In any case, I got a gut feeling somethin’ is gonna
happen. You just wait and see.”
After a quick morning meal Hump pulled out the guitar and they started in on their first collaboration together: “If I
My everythingI never realized it until I moved,My everything by born-master-poet
But she's the only girl for me.
She's my first thought in the morning,
And the last thought at night.
She's my light when all I have is night.
She's my only hope when I'm depressed.
She believed in me when everyone doubted.
Sure we fought before but I've changed.
The reasons just aren't there anymore.
I'd do anything to be held
And to hold her one more time.
I'm in love with everything about her.
From the freckles on her nose,
To the way she sleeps in my arms.
The color of her ever changing eyes
And her adorable dimple when she smiles.
The thing that stops my heart though,
Is the way she looks at me
When she thinks I'm not looking back.
Megan and Purity. Ch 2. GreetingsPurity gasped and woke up rubbing his eyes. He never had a nightmare since he left. Well there is always a first for everything. Seeing a dim light in the kitchen he went checking on it.Megan and Purity. Ch 2. Greetings by Purity360
He peeked around the corner. Stunned it was a rather youngish middle aged woman getting a midnight snack. He wasn’t sure how old she was he had guessed 30 but it didn’t make sense in his head especially since Megan was 20.
The woman seemed to be digging around in the fridge not even changing out of her office suit. She was getting a late night snack then turned seeing him. She had a half of cake in her mouth.
He cowered a bit with a red face. The woman swallowed smiling a bit.
"Sorry ma'am I was just checking to see who it was." He retreated back behind his corner. He wa slightly stunned by the fact she was extremely young. Purity had expected a bit of a much older person.
“Oh no its fine!” It seemed she didn’t the unexpected company. The lady popped around the corner bein
Megan and Purity. Ch 1. PurityPurity shouted and growled at his mother. “Burn in hell!” He wandered away. He needed to get away. Being there only made it worse. He never knew he had screwed up that badly. What started as a little pity fight turned into a constant war. Sure most of the problems were his fault but... He shook his head in denial.Megan and Purity. Ch 1. Purity by Purity360
No. Not now. It's too close. Further.
He prefered not to think about it now. Purity retreated further, taking every single corner he could take. Left, left, right, straight. Anywhere to run seemed better. The worries slipped away once Purity felt he was a good mile away. He looked around as it was barely night time with a mostly cloudy sky. He approached a park with a rather sturdy tree in front of him.
As good as a new home I guess.
Grouchy with no money at hand, forgetting his wallet, he sighed sitting down by a tree. He sniffled a bit. Alone in the darkness. His mind was going in circles. Could he go back? His mother would never take him back.
Last LoveI had her,Last Love by born-master-poet
The love of my life.
The last one I'll every love.
I hurt her,
I know I did,
And it's the last time.
States away to be exact.
I regret it,
I normally don't,
But this is my one exception.
My only exception,
The one that will always be there.
So hard to prove,
To her father that it's true.
To fight me,
Because I hurt her so bad.
Away hurts so
Much more than anything he could do.
I told him
Exactly that and,
I think he finally caved in.
Of hope is all
I need to slip back into her life.
And I am her only Jack.
She and I
Eternally each others last love.

Just FriendsIt’s been a long time since I sat next to a friend,Just Friends by MySocksRock
and looked in his eyes
while he held my hand.
I never imagined this would happen to us,
two broken hearts healing
nearly destroyed by lust.
All night I hoped that you wouldn’t see
how much I adored
the way you laughed and teased.
I made the first mistake long before your kiss,
as I spent the whole night
staring at your lips.
It took all my strength to push you away,
to ask you to wait for another time
The truth is I would love to be with you,
but we both still have so much
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...
