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

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.
-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
You Told Me That You Loved MeYou told me that you loved meYou Told Me That You Loved Me by Rifle1980
And breathed life in to my world
You told me that you loved me
And you’ll always be my girl
You told me that you loved me
That I’m such a special man
You told me that you loved me
And we were part of His plan
Now you tell me you don’t love me
But you still let me believe
You tell me you don’t love me
And you never let me grieve
You tell me you don’t love me
That we can only be friends
Then you tell me you still love me
But never speak to me again
It's been nearly three years sinceA letter written in blood and tearsIt's been nearly three years since by Full-Darkness
an envelope filled with wasted years
parchment made from empty fears
written by firelight under smoke uncleared.
No sun is risen to end this night
no candle is lit to bring us light
how many times I've said it isn't right
and pulled you from so great a height.
Darling, this is how it ends
with four words my spirit rends
let this love from my heart be cleansed
I guess then, this is how it ends.
And as I lay upon my pillow
and stare at the foreign ceiling
I whisper your name
And pray I never have to go back.
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
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
Revelation ch. 2The combination lock’s dial spun under my shaking fingers as I attempted to open my locker while he was standing behind me. His breath tickled my neck as he spoke, making me bite my lip as he told me...whatever it was he was saying. My heart was fluttering enough for me to be worried about a potential heart attack. I took a deep breath as I slammed my locker shut and turned towards him.Revelation ch. 2 by Full-Darkness
“So what d’ya think, man?” he asked, continuing his unending line of speech, “we can go to the party on Saturday and watch the game on Sunday, it’ll be awesome.”
“Yeah,” I said, hiding my trembling by gripping my binder tightly, “that’s cool. I’ll call you Friday, alright?” we grasped hands and clapped each other on the back. As his face came close to my ear, he slowly brought his lips to my jaw. I closed my eyes, but the words rushed out quickly. “Stop, Jake, people will notice,” I whispered.
*Mystery*Fields of golden grain.*Mystery* by Delice1941
Flawless under summer sun
Sundown, all is well
Moonlight cast gentle shadow
Sunrise, crop circles.
-Sunlight- (2008)Asleep in the shimmering green meadow-Sunlight- (2008) by AlyssaStehle
The sun tickled the side of my face
I sat up straight in the sunbeams
Light danced all around
I was warm and comfortable
Scattering the golden petals on the wind
He loves me, he loves me not
Grasping the cool flower petals tightly
I felt a warm hand envelope my own
Two dreams, touching finger tips
Hold me like the suns rays
Warm and familiar
Even as clouds cast shadows on this world
Even as the sky glistens with orange and gold
Before the night takes you away
Tell me that you love me
-Blue Dawn- (2008)My world has become blurred by this happy tear-Blue Dawn- (2008) by AlyssaStehle
The sky seems to be different than before
Quietly I closed my eyes in the haze
I’m sending my thoughts
Across the blue dawn
I called your name many times
But the wind carried it away
Till it was only a whisper
I’m here in this capsule of night
Far from the feelings we have for each other
I draw my yellow curtains to keep out the sun
Falling into a light sleep
While the day goes on without me
I’ll be here dreaming of you
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...
