The Waiting

Charged for crimes she didn’t commit She refused to give up her only consent Holding strong to her innate dark magic Denying to use it as her defense was tragic Held captive beneath the earth’s vile floor Evil spilled each day seeping to the core It was a long tortuous penance she paid For theContinue reading “The Waiting”

All Great Fortune’s

It’s been a long-standing tradition that every time you read a fortune out loud that you append “In Bed,” to make it more… shall we say, entertaining.

Dancing Flames ~ #FWF

  Sweltering days spent at the beach absorbing the heat Temperatures drop rapidly with the departing sun Nightfall gatherings around the shared campfire Partaking in song, sweets and drinks – all evening long Exhausted from the day’s extraneous play Hypnotized by the dancing flames and lapping waves Dragged under the sea for much-needed sleep Emerging sunContinue reading “Dancing Flames ~ #FWF”

Soul Reaper

“She always had that about her, that look of otherness, of eyes that see things much too far, and of thoughts that wander off the edge of the world.” ― Joanne Harris By day Shelby was a beautiful sight to behold for sure.

Nirvana

First Encounters

As soon as he entered the room Jana noticed.
