You Should Be Sleeping

You Should Be Sleeping

We're three of a kind,

but we can't take it with us when we go.

That much, we know.

Will we care, when we take the land?

No, for Gryffindor, and tall we stand.

It was not ours to take.

But we did it anyway,

just like we always do it anyway.

I suppose all that's left to do is leave,

and join you in the armory.

I didn't want to come at all,

but they're running from us at a crawl.

And poor, dear flights from death

cannot handle life like the rest.

Are you ever going to see

just what you've taken from me?

The ocean never ceases flight,

just like us, so alone this night.

The midnight oil burns with us,

and red's come over all the colors rest;

A sweet cascade of vicious death.

Laughter air is scarce today,

and not one of us shall run away.

A ghostly peril, running sway;

A spider crawls the foyer whilst the kittens play.

Acid, silver, spinning tongue,

No one's gone, and no one's won.

In our custom fashion, we will try

to take them with us when we close our eyes.

The battle's lost for some tonight,

and last words did not escape the fight.

A runaway brawl is no sensitive flower,

still to listen to your heart break with power.

There is no respectful chorus here,

and this is what we all most fear:

That we've fought, and died, goodness on our side;

But when the time is come, though of us there be many,

and love had flowed freely here,

We can't take it with us when we go.

chrissyvaerga67: I’m like not a grammar person soooo I just gave 5 stars

Sa'adah Achari: First of all, I did not expect that the ending was like hanging and sad. I want to know more about Anna story. What happen to her and her kids? But, overall is quite a good story.

Jojo Sproul: Fast paced, realistic..Story shows that sometimes your worst enemies are members of your own household..Times of joy and times of sorrow, just like in real life...The Author needs to get a proofreader or review the chapters before posting...A good story can be spoilt by poor grammar or incorrect ...

Yasmin Kingi (Yazzy): Intense and unpredictable. I loved it, and was sad to say goodbye.

Ashlee Ennen: This was a nice surprise of a read, I can't wait for her to upload more. This is easily the best book I ever read about werewolves and all of mythological beings. It's not your normal supernatural telling that we all have read over and over! I would hands down buy this book or if the writer make...

Auslly4ever15: I would have wanted to find out if all the girls turned into vampires as it was never discussed if they had been, or read about one of them at least getting turned. Overall a good quick mini series to read

Abby: Loved it!! Masterpiece. True work of art

Auslly4ever15: Another cute quick read😊could use some grammar and editing like the rest of the series, but overall cute book.

turtles_101: I love the book but they way the author did the ending was a little to abrupt almost as if they were trying to end it as fast a they could. Other than that I did enjoy the book.

jenniferaddy0: It was an interesting piece, I didn't want to put it down until I finished.

Mhz SweetCharmz: Best Werewolf Book Ever!!!!!!!!!

Rose: The book is great I actually read it more than once. It's so great

Shaun: The story is great and I would like to continue reading but I can't do that if you're not gonna continue writing. Even though Mason and Amooti doesn't interact that much I could already feel the chemisty.
