A Sorrowed LossI lost someone I loved today,
His soul now to fly free.
His heart to meander carelessly,
As he watches over me.
He left us in the morning,
During sleep; mind so calm.
His eyes clasped inside his inner being,
Yet never all that far.
Tears were shed; hugs hardly felt,
The pain; too much to bear.
In memory we fondly think of him,
How life takes; it isn't fair.
Grandfather to many a child,
Son to outlived dad.
Husband to a mourning wife,
What a wonderful life he'd had.
The pain of most is knowing that,
His father survived all sons.
Left alone; no wife nor kin,
Nor the moon nor setting Suns.
We celebrate however,
Knowing dear old John is home.
We look to heaven and think o
A time piece in stone,
The wall that withstands,
A wall that protects.
A wall that, beyond extreme labour,
Against the endless attack,
A timely journey,
The track that leads nowhere,
A track that guides you forward,
And shows you the way back,
Though light is never definite,
A new look upon things,
New ways of living,
A way to see.
A change to see you smiling,
The only way forward,
An unplanned change,
A mistake to fail your heart,
A loss of mind.
A spontaneous fracture,
Photetry Contest - Signs
I took the leap,
I fell hard and fast.
The water rushed up around me.
I hit the ground,
Thump, whip, crack.
The blood pooled up around me.
I looked around,
My blood mixed with water about me.
I held my breath,
My life to fade.
'Shallow Water' the sign that forsook me.
The End Is NighLife has you tied up so much right now,
I'd help you but I'm not sure how.
If you've a plan, let me know,
I want to help, you say; I'll go.
Life takes you by the skinny wrists,
Wrings them tight with turns and twists.
It stabs you in your scar-wreaked back,
As you climb the monotonous track.
You cry in pain; agonising hell,
Forever doomed to scream and yell.
You fall to the ground in pain and war,
When death comes knocking at your door.
'We've come for you' Death exclaims,
'You're out of time; the end of games.'
You stand to your feet and welcome in,
Death, the end, darkness within.
Trapped Inside A Dream Part 11A few days went by without any dramas, and Nicholas continued to hide his phenomenon. As time went by, the infection spread. It now covered his whole arm, his torso and both legs. Only his head and left arm remained unaffected.
'I must be dreaming.' He said as he stood naked in front of the bathroom mirror, examining himself.
'You're not dreaming Nicholas.' The mirror spoke back.
Nicholas stumbled backwards, panting. He stared at the mirror, willing it to remain silent, but it spoke again.
'This is so very real Nicholas.' Nicholas tried to run; he remembered the incident in the mansion with the mirror, but yet this perfectly normal one seemed to have a hold on him.
'Let me go!' He cried, attempting to leave the border of the frame.
'No, Nicholas. You are ours now, and you will remain forever ours.' It spoke calmly. A strange sense of calm that sent chills down his spine.
'No! NO! Let me GO!' He yelled, pounding his bare skin against the air beside him. The same invisible force from the
