Lily

By Anjali Roongta

Poetry / Romance

Lily

Circe

From the shadows of the past,

A maiden has ensnared by heart.

Her hair red like a flame,

Flickering down her back,

Burns the hearts of all around her,

Her eyes are emeralds,

Set in the most beautiful stone,

And the coldness of it grips me in its arms.

My eyes follow her,

A willing slave,

I dance before my lady.

Her magic snares have me trapped.

Her voice is that of waves running,

To the ears of a man dying with thirst,

That kills him with longing yet he stays un-quenched.

Her sharp words bleed from eyes,

Yet blood and all I offer,

A willing slave,

To her tune I dance.

She is Circe,

The cold queen of my heart,

I know with her lies death,

I know her beauty is a trap,

A broken heart is l will get in end,

Yet a willing guinea pig,

I am,

To all she does,

A willing slave,

To my beautiful stone lady,

A moth,

Ready to burn in her flame,

A man,

Ensnared to the core,

For her and her alone.

James Potter closed the muggle notebook and hid it at the bottom of his trunk with several disillusionment charms on it and went to the common room, his hurt from Lily's rejection already gone and a wide Marauder-ish smile on his face.

"Oi Padfoot! Want to go to the kitchens?" he asked loudly, running a hand through his hair as he watched Lily Evans scowl at him from the corner of his eye. Everything was okay, just another normal day at Hogwarts for the Gryffindor Quidditch Captain.

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

Elizabeth Krohn: I really enjoy the story but the Dursley's hate for Harry to just disappear is not very realistic and does seem to OC for me. Dudley, i can see changing due to the dementor incident but the other two ... not so much.For breeding purposes Luna and severus should have kids to have another Hogwarts...

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse! This is sort of a multi-genre festival of delights. With hints of forced societies, vamps, hunters, romance, apocalypse, government conspiracy, and thrill...

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

MelanyFrey: This story is just so realistic and so amazingly written that I felt I was a part of it. It starts off completely ordinary, describing the lives of three young brothers, then slowly shifting the focus on one of them, putting him into the spotlight and following him into this unusual, but yet so r...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

MavisMcQueen: "To Live Again" is a well crafted, highly engaging, heart vibrating tale surrounding our favorite Elven King.
