Through the time of day I see,
I see what's not in me.
I find the pain and I think
of all the things in life...
my life and
I know the pain of fear
and the cost you pay to hide
your real life,
to the extent you don't know
the lies of hiding who you are
from the reality of who you wish you weren't.

You lie to hide so much
you convince yourself
the lies are real.

And then at the light of dusk I sleep
and all lies and fears are lost in time
dreaming of a life that can never be.
The happiness of a trusting boyfriend
and the everwatchful eyes of young children
smiling back at you for who you are.
Like faeries in a little child's book.

And at the rise of dusk I hear a voice so soft
and innocent,
like one of a mermaids song,
"Arise young child from your
songs of dream and go back to
the fears and lies of reality,
as soon you shall dream again."

And so I rise and meet the dawning new day
with hope that reality is a continuous nightmare
that ended with last nights dreams...

and again I wait for dusk to come
and take me to my dreams.


The Chantress

by

Drucilla Vampyress

Sha talks to the godess of the moon
asking for protection
while she marks her circle
in a blazing white light.

Through her chants she asks
and praises the gods & goddesses.
She asks for protection from those
who try to harm her,
and she asks for this pain of hers
to ease.

She praoses the earth,
gives thanks to the corners
for the protection she
recieved,
whilst doing her work
on this special eve.

She now has finished & she
takes her white light &
stores it in herself
for next when she returns.


I can fly

sitting here in my room
it's all lit up, but
no-one's home
just sitting here
all alone
i feel like crying
i feel like dying
i'm just sitting here
by myself
thinking of ways
to
pass my time
life is so long,yet
i have such little time
why do i feel
the way i do
happy, yet
so sad and
i don't know
why...
i just sit and watch
as life passes me
by
this room is my world
small dingy and
disliked
the hatred puring out
of me
and
f
l
o
w
i
n
g

so freely
toward the
ones
i do not
know
why is this happening
to me
why
can't i just
die
waiting for something
that's
never going to
happen
waiting for something
and
you don't know why
waiting for life to pass
you by
if only i could fly
i would take off and
never
come
back
i'd show you
all
that i could live
without your
love
your laughter
and
your light
i'd show you all...

if only i knew how to fly

The air is warm,
yet the light
is dull,
The soft padded walls and ground.
The air blowing through,
so happy
yet bored to tears
sliding slowly down
a soft cusion
sliding
falling
dropping
sinking...
into the ground
hiding from the predators
in white
with their coats, papers
needles.

Injections
ow...
Help me I'm falling there
is a light,
am i dying and that light is heaven?

"No, you are in hell and you are mine"

Her heart lifeless
& her soul... dead
Spent her life looking for love,
Giving love,
Yet never once recieving.

Now only her body's left
Slowly dying.
The last years of her life
spent in a coma...

The once young girl
is already dead.


Shattered Image

Your the only person in my life,
the only on that matters.
Your the only one who will
care for me...
when I am old and grey.
I could never live without you.
You are my best and only friend,
you are the one in the shattered mirror
looking back at me...
