Once Upon a Dream- challengeFrozen lips, a face unkissed,Once Upon a Dream- challenge by Artistgirly-18
A castle in a kingdom- missed
Thorns sharp as razors edge
The princess teetering on a ledge
A dragon from her past unleashed
Her sleeping prince, out of reach
She picks up his fallen sword
Runs at the dragon, pushing forward
Finally prepared, dagger to heart
Her trusted air tears the beast apart
In green flames, the tyranny ends
Into the depths of the castle, she descends
But oh, too late, his lips are cold
Surrounded by the stench of old
It was not a curse in which they slept
But a deathwish made, a deathwish kept.
Unable to move on alone,
Inside a garden with thorns overgrown
She very tentatively, with motions nimble
Lays her finger upon the thimble
She lays beside her fallen love
Searching for strength from above
Into death her heart transcends
Her fairytale story finally ends...
But out in the mists, in the forest lost
A smiling figure she comes across
Her prince awaiting her beside a stream
To walk with her once upon a dream.
The FlameThe pyre is setThe Flame by Artistgirly-18
The match is lit
With fire bright
My teeth I grit.
The little flame-
A burning flight
From the mundane.
With golden hunger
A spark of desire
A thirst to burn
Within your fire...
My breath you steal
My skin you own
My mind forsaking
All but the unknown.
A secret kiss
A fire set flame,
Come take my darkness-
Come steal my pain.
TimeI suppose it must be time to box away your thingsTime by Artistgirly-18
Time to set aside the memories, the sadness it brings
Time to, with a weary soul, walk away at last
Time to tear you from my future, leave you in the past.
Time to swallow the reality of nothing left to mend,
Time that this great love affair finally come to end.
Time to patch up my heart. Preserve whatever's left...
Within this compassionate so you abandoned so bereft
Time for the dreams to stop,t he sound of your voice to fade
Time for me to accept losing all we've made.
Definitely time to stop wishing for you to come by
Can't keep remembering the way you used to sigh
Time to let go of the cadence of my name,
On your lips, on your smile, again and again.
Yes- time it seems to let you go, and start again anew...
But I fear no amount of time will stop me loving you.
MemoryThose glassy eyes painted blueMemory by Artistgirly-18
Rimmed with tears, what to do...
I watch you as you watch me
Masks to hide our memory
No more time for us to grieve
I just wait to see you leave.
Those whispered words under lights
Strung about high in the nights
We look about with a soft gaze
Anywhere but into the haze
Where we sit close but far away
Never letting love in our way.
Those aching breaths, thoughts aligned
Masterfully, painfully designed
A catalyst of broken things,
Scattered pieces of scattered dreams
I still remain an obedient slave,
Still passive for the love you gave.
Those repetitive salutations, goodbyes
Weakened by that incessant drive
No rest for the weary, no calm for the weak
Nothing left for me, nothing I seek
No ribbon or bow to gift me this pain
Little left to lose, nothing offered to gain.
Those staggering moments of being alone
A habit, obsession, that's only grown
The silence becomes the words you spoke
My defenses, a reminder of those walls you broke
Nothing left here of the
