Finding the GroundSoft treads, rain on the ground
Land lightly, in the air around.
Millions falling, on paved streets
Keep your hands out, as you fall from your feet.
Swept AwayWelcome home, where your feet feel safe.
But only for a moment, in this dull, forgotten place.
Rest this night, but stay no more,
For when the tides crash on the shore
It will be gone, washed away
It will return again some day.
Second ChanceHold your breath
The stars are falling
Close your eyes
It's you I'm calling.
Open palms, wrapped up tight,
In my fingers, eyes alight,
The crystal gaze, that stares me down
Strips away my tarnished crown
Something to take the heaviness away
Something to know that my soul has stayed
Alive, through all the broken hearts
Hold my hand, let's find a new start.
What Isn'tThose eyes, take my mind
To a far off place
And every night,
I'll see that face.
To have you beside me
A gift, beyond measure
Your heart, your soul,
To hold you when your fingers shake
To lift you when your feet ache
Would be the world, I couldn't have
Would be the fate, I didn't grab.
What They SayThey tell me to stand at attention
And sing, for my fragile home.
They tell me to kneel
For a father who left us alone.
They tell me, to strive for my goals
That they put in me to chase
I'll tell them, tonight
Tonight we save our unforgivable race.
All the Catelippars are Flutterbies!Writhing in a velvet prison
Is the mind, to hold it's own.
Like the caterpillar, who grows to be
The mother, who disowns.
For the years, coming of age
To trap itself, in a silken cage
But yet, the butterfly within
Wishes to be the caterpillar again.
Official Business - Part 1Why are we here, anyways?, I thought to myself, There's nothing here, and there never has been. Why, time and time again, do people insist on going in? Maybe it's just human nature that, when quite so many say to not do something, we're unbearably inclined. Whatever the reason, I'm here.
"Where do we get in?"
"You think it's unlocked?"
"How are we--"
She gestured up at a window above, where a face materialized, and waved back at her. A whir and a click later, she pulled the door back, and we were inside.
"What do you think this place was used for?"
"It's an office building, so...office stuff."
"Is that all?"
"Of course not."
I left it at that, and hardly a minute more, we were at a dead end. The ceiling had collapsed, and the rubble filled the room.
"No getting past this. Plan B?"
"Plan B? Plan A is still in motion."
Another door to the right stood closed. However, she didn't even check the lock before she began searching the room.
Untitled 2The black void deep within your chest
Where once a noble heart did rest
Will feel the pain, when everything's wrong
Won't keep simply dragging along
To stare through the space between
The lost and those who intervene
To see the light, where once you could hide
Away from the world, who wouldn't swallow their pride
But now that's gone, the shade is ablaze
With the eyes of those, who were once afraid
So find your feet now, for the ground moves fast
Keep your wits about you, or you may meet your last.
UntitledLook around you, the streets are aflame
With the fear, that has no name.
No face, no thought,
No fear, loves naught
Shutters and doors will bar you within,
Within it's warm reach, feeding on your kin
The outcasts, the ones, who you fear the most
Will be the heroes you need, when you become their host
The daylight soothes none, for in it's shadow you'll see
All the things you can't ignore, make you set yourself free
Or tell yourself it doesn't matter,
That everyone's the same
That rebellion will fall flatter
Than dying without a name.
Keep in Touch!
^Nyx-Valentine arrived in our community and started whipping everyone into a frenzy with her relentless desire to bring the Artistic Nude and Fetish galleries to the fore. 9 years later, and it's safe to say that Nyx is not only a leader as a photographer in these galleries, but she has also established herself as a much saught after model. ^...
