Do you know who I am? Do you think that my soul is calm as you say?  A tame mare you can bridle.  A sight for eyes that searched too long?  Another pretty face, to recall at the late hours of the night?

No.  I am no princess from your fairy tales.  I am no damsel in your accursed, grey, towers.

No.  I am nothing like it.

I am the chill down your spine, colder than the winter months.  I am the monster under your bed, naught but pale bones and empty eyes.  I am the ghost that haunts you, dead and hungry for more death.  I am all the things you hide from.  I am something to fear.  Something to hate.

I am the force behind the dark that keeps you awake.  The one that keeps you still as you pray to god that it passes and doesn’t see you.  The next time you call me beautiful think of every shadow that has touched you in your dreams.

Run from me, boy.  Forget you ever saw me.  Lie down and hate the day you heard my name.

I am no calmer than the height of the storm.  The raging winds have a gentle touch compared to me.  I am no less fierce than the strike of lightening.  The two edged sword is more merciful than I.  Should it pierce you before I find you, consider yourself blessed.

You know nothing of me.  Leave my sight and read your tales, boy.  You’ll find no rest here.
I am every knife in your back, bitter as the feeling of betrayal.


I wrote this a couple of nights ago. I was kinda angry and frustrated when I wrote it. It's safe to say I can have an ego occasionally.
This will go down when I set up my other account and then I might put it there as well. Tell me what you think.

Hahaha!  I know how you feel!  I look through somebodies written stuff and say TOO LONG; DIDN'T READ!  XD  Thanks so much!  I'm glad you like it!  Writing with emotion is certainly better than drawing with it.  XD

I'm... really stunned by this. In the best possible way, I mean. Like... breathless, wordless, everything-less? It's like Queen Mab herself burst through my door to tell me what a piece of shit I am.

:blush:  Really?  Breathless?  Wow.  I didn't think it was that good.  Thank you.  It means a lot coming from someone who is such a great writer as you.  And you aren't a piece of shit, my friend.  Quite the opposite.  :)

Haha. Thanks for saying that, but this piece gave the feeling of someone with power and authority saying as much.

Oh good.  That's nice to hear.  I thought it would come across as a kind of power trip... overly self confident sounding.  Authoritative is actually exactly what I was looking for.  :)

it's a fine line to walk. And you certainly strutted your stuff, so to speak. That... didn't come out quite as well as I'd meant it.
