Descent into Madness, part 2

I spat on the ground bitterly. I glared at the smirking royal, sheathed my sword and turned my back on him.

“Well, that’s rude,” I heard him say. “I didn’t even get a chance to thank my rescuer.”

I ignored him and started walking away but I noticed my cloak behind the rock and remembered what I hid under there. I had to get rid of him first before I went home with my prize.

Sighing heavily, I turned back to him. “Forget about it, it’s what anyone would have done.”

“Maybe so,” he replied smoothly. “But not as well as you did. And judging from your words when you realized who I am, you may not have wanted to do it.”

I stared at him. “Does what I want matter?”Read More »

Attraction

Attraction, it’s a funny affair
I didn’t think you were my type
but I was wrong and I don’t even care

It’s funny, I thought I’d be over you by now
Like stalking would make me forget you somehow

It’s funny that you’re unaware of the effect you have on me
I can’t help it, I get lost in the bluest gaze I’ll ever see

It’s funny, every day I’m asking why you’re so attractive in my eyes
You never had to do anything but I feel the heat in me rise

It’s funny how you crept up on me
It’s something I didn’t expect
You’re just too goddamn sexy
and I think you’re someone I won’t regret

It’s funny how you can make me do things that I’ll never admit to
but if you were here doing those feats, I’d join you in a fucking heartbeat

It’s funny that I’m still writing words I’d never show you in a million years
But it’s the only way of letting out feelings that you can’t hear

Attraction, it’s a funny fucking thing
I liked you before but now you’re my king.

Roses Every Year, part 2

| Part 1 |


Dear J,

I’m leaving. I don’t want to, but I have to.

I trusted you beyond all others. I believed you would never hurt me and I believed that you would always protect me. You didn’t.

I was yours, from the moment we met.

Love,
M


Dear J,

I’ve met somebody new. He’s good to me, I promise. You don’t have to worry.

I hope you can be happy for me. You’re my best friend.

Love,
M


Dear J,

You were right. It seems I chose wrong.

I know you want us to be together but I can’t be with you. But I’m glad to have you.

I hope you’re alright.

Love,
M


Dear M,

I still can’t believe you’re gone.

I’m sorry that I wasn’t with you and I’m sorry that I was too stupid to let you go.

I hope you’re happy now and I want you to know that I remember what you said a long time ago.

Love always,
J

Descent Into Madness, part 1

I woke up late, as usual.

My mother used to berate me about it, telling me that the animals would be gone by the time I went hunting. I told her she was crazy, animals were everywhere in the forest. It didn’t matter what time you got up, I could always get enough food for both of us.

I was wrong though. Food became scarce.

He usurped the throne, took over the kingdom and taxed the people. He and his knights hunted for sport, slaughtering animals left and right until their population dwindled considerably, leaving almost nothing for the rest of us. He killed her.Read More »

The Mad King, part 1

Once upon a time, there was a young but powerful king who sought to take over all the kingdoms around his own. He was bloodthirsty but fair and while people respected him, they also feared him.

He was successful in taking over most of the kingdoms except for one. This kingdom was ruled by an old crone, rumored to be a cunning, vengeful witch. The king would never admit it but he feared this woman. He delayed his attack on this particular kingdom, telling himself that he didn’t need another kingdom as he had amassed enough.

On the king’s 28th birthday, he grew restless and his desire for power overtook his fear. He decided to attack the crone’s kingdom at night, with five of his most loyal knights with him.

They invaded the enormous castle, slashing and hacking their way through the crone’s guards. The king reached the throne room alone where he found the crone waiting for him.Read More »

Want

Heat spreads all over my skin
Biting my lips, reeling it in
Dazed and confused, wondering why this is
When all I can think about is asking for your kiss

Heat pools in my core
I’m looking at you and wanting more
I’d beg for you without hesitation
Butterflies in my stomach, tingling with anticipation

I want without end, more than anyone can imagine
I feel intense desire, my patience is wearing thin
I long for your touch, here I am holding my breath
It’s you and me against the world from the moment that we met

I hear you whisper in my ear, voice soothing and deep
These memories we’re making are all for us to keep
You see me and your eyes light up, I feel my knees shaking
You smirk at me and you know exactly what I’m thinking

It’s a different kind of love, what I’m feeling every day
It’s too bad that you can’t hear all the things I want to say
I wish you felt for me just what I feel for you
For now, I guess I can pretend that you want me too
