The TreatyThe Treaty by x-X-x-Lizard-x-X-x
"There is another option."
Lord Phillip, Privy Councillor and Chief Advisor to the King of Leira shifted his feet uncomfortably as he found himself affixed by a piercing blue stare.
"Pray, do enlighten me."
Julius let the man sweat for a moment, before flopping gracefully into a chair, and turning his gaze to the stained glass window. It lit his skin blue and green, flattering the classic profile that was the heartache of many a Lady at court.
Phillip released his breath as the weight of the King's attention weakened.
"Well, your Majesty... the situation is grave. Hexa is spoiling for war, and what with the Western rebellion and the cold blight on last year's harvest... we cannot afford to fight. Our soldiers are weary, our resources depleted-"
"Which is precisely why they choose now to strike." The King curled his lip. "Tell me something I don't know."
The grey-haired advisor gulped, and ploughed on
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.

to find better
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 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.

Own thoughts, self,
Against the sky,
Life line never fails,
Never change coarse,
Over and over and...
We, minds merge,
And our paths spread
Out like fingers,
Like roots of
Ancient oak trees, standing
High and wide,
True and mighty.
Flow the rivers,
Deep, waters of
Life, do not drink
From the well,
Life, and of this,
May more, often
And most varied,
Do not drink from the well.
Say what you mean,
Say it in a story,
Stolen whispers in the mist,
Kisses that were never,
Against the sea,
Salt hangs upon your skin.
Skin, keeping it all
Kept deep within.
Unthink the badness,
Hold the sun up high,
She emerged from
The deepest wood,
Dark shadows follow,
Green dressed with
The many hued sky.
We is, and
Come from earth, and
Blood, in time,
In time we is
All being what we can.

Love is a MotivatorDon't let your blood fall, my loveLove is a Motivator by Full-Darkness
don't unwind your intricacies
for you are more alive
now than you were before
Though you are forever changed
my prince, we will always be together
and as I lay you in your velvet-lined grave
let my tears wash the stains from your coat
My dear, though you couldn't be immortal
our love will never die.
Bitterness is a ParalyticKeep laughing and knowBitterness is a Paralytic by Full-Darkness
that one day
it will be me with the gun
and you with the knife
I'm not one for revenge
revenge doesn't move me
but love stands
above any feeling of pain
Keep laughing and know
for making me love you,
it will be your last
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

-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
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
Atheism (Why the attraction?)Atheism (Why the attraction?) by tommyboywood
Why do so many embrace disbelief? What trends have contributed to atheism's rise? Perhaps more important, does belief make any sense in this modern world? If you find these questions intriguing, please read my current journal entry, dated 8/10/13.
In a world so filled with hate,
does it make any sense to believe?
I know free will is on my plate,
but I refuse to let me be deceived!
Torn in Two 2The two kingdoms had been at war for over 50 years, and after all those years there was no sign of peace in sight. The kingdoms of Sombre and Léger hated each other and thousands of men had lost their lives fighting for their kingdom. Men left their families for months to fight, only getting to visit their families on special holidays when everyone could relax for a while and enjoy their family.Torn in Two 2 by L-Rue-Ryuzaki
On the first of May both kingdoms celebrated spring, to welcome the warm weather and new life. Also in both kingdoms they celebrated the birth of the prince and princess, the heirs to the throne. The prince celebrated his 19th birthday this year, the beginning of his second year being able to fight along side his father in the war.
The fighting had ended and everyone was finally heading home, they could finally get to see their families and spend the four days relaxing and not worrying about fighting. The prince was happy that once they resumed fighting he wouldn't have to worry about fi

Romance in the Cards Chapter 1 Part 4Ellie nervously sat at the oak table in between Frank and the hazel-haired man. She knew she must look very out of place, but then again, none of them looked like they would enjoy this game.Romance in the Cards Chapter 1 Part 4 by PikaInk
“Hey guys,” she said as she tried not to look confused. The man next to her looked at her with bright green eyes, but didn’t say anything. The other one didn’t look up from the pile of cards in front of his face. He just stared at them with a serious look on his face that Ellie couldn’t seem to understand. Was he waiting to hear horrible news or about to take a poo?
Frank was the first to speak. “This is Ellie. She’s going to play with us tonight.”
The hazel-haired man didn’t take his stunning eyes off of Ellie’s. “I’m Henry, we will deal you in. They’re almost done.” Frank flipped one of his cards with a green dragon on it sideways and said something that Ellie didn’t quite catch. His opponent pushed his thin
-Back To Life-The scent in my hair-Back To Life- by AlyssaStehle
Breathes sweet memories
Of the dreams that are meant to be lived
Cruelty, patience, yearning, and greed
After being crushed for so long
I was able to slip through the floorboards with ease
Heartbeats and blurred vision
Collided where the shadows stretched
A memorable dream indeed
What sweet smoke clouds my mind?
Tangled from movements, woven into my hair
It lingered all night long
The harm has been done; no tears will be shed
Butterflies flutter where icicles used to hang
Trembling as I’m brought back to life
Soft words, soft hands
Caressing my troubled thoughts, caressing my broken body
I’m healing; I can learn to smile again
Without understanding kindness
Without understanding my own wishes and desires
I embraced you without thinking
This morning too
It’s a little brighter, and a little warmer
Sweet breath whispered the snow away
Soon this dried up landscape will be reborn
Rain, weeping in the streets, the purging of blood
Memories, dreams, real
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.
