Chapter 1- A Ballad, a Sonnet, and a Eulogy

The Ballad of Delilah Logan

Delilah, the young woman with the yellow locks

Light skin, brown eyes, vengeance in her walk.

On the run from a past filled with gloom

Can’t escape her curse; suffering and doom

The darkness calls her name as she runs from the devil

Monsters of the night out to terrorize and revel

Blood left in her path but not by her own doing

For the gift of immortality, death is ensuing

Oh wow what she’d give to not have to run

Every life and every soul, another mistake

Her soul she would give to see the demons be gone

But her curse is eternal, no way to break

Delilah, the beauty with a heart of stone

The queen of the dance, lonely hearts as her throne

Intoxicating kiss, she brings men to their knees

A hundred years of running, yet she can’t drown out their pleas

To be in her bed is both a blessing and a curse

One night in bliss; and the next night in a hearse

But the curse is not so absolute, there’s more to it than death

The trail of blood goes deep before the final breath

Oh wow what she’d give to not have to run

Every life and every soul, another mistake

Her soul she would give to see the monsters be gone

But her curse is eternal, no way to break

All she wanted was to be loved; she didn’t know what it would cost

All she wanted was him; but in the end he was lost

Lies and deceit, adultery and sin; the price the heart pays for a fading moment

A hundred years later, there’s nothing within. An eternity of torment, cursed to repent

Oh wow what she’d give to not have to run

Every life and every soul, another mistake

Her soul she would give to see the evil all done

But her curse is eternal, no way to break


The Sonnet of Valeria Botello

Deep voices from the earth call out her name

Growling and rumbling, corpses from graves

Summoned by the devil, she cannot tame

The monster within, locked away in caves

Her name is a folk tale, forbidden lore

Her lips are untouched, as evil deprives

Her voice is an omen, harbinger roar

Her touch, a death sentence, no one survives

Demons from the depths of hell, here to take

Wicked deals made long ago, ink still wet

Always on the run, death left in the wake

No one understands, the curse that’s been set

Beauty on the surface, pain underneath

The girl who runs from monsters with big teeth


Eulogy for A Soul Taken too soon

So much potential, courage and love

Alan Williams, Jr. was truly a gift sent from above

So young yet so wise; he fought to be true

Never giving up when times became blue

He dared to be himself, when everyone rejected him

His cup was never empty; it was always to the brim

That’s how he saw the world, dreams and second chances

No lost causes, just new songs and funny dances

He hadn’t seen his family in quite some time

They didn’t see the angel he was, they never let him shine

But that didn’t make him bitter or mean or lost

He deserved love and he was willing to pay the cost

He loved unconditionally, believing everyone was good

Even when it hurt him, he did all that he could

To accept his own flaws and put aside the pain

So that he could help another move past the strain

He never asked for anything back; he gave from the heart

And even though he’s gone, he’ll always be a part

Of each and every one of us, the people he held close

His brand new family, the one that he chose

His passing is a tragedy; no one knows why he’s gone

He will never be forgotten; the sun sets then again comes the dawn

bonyspikexavier: The author is keeping us engaged with the plot. Though sometimes done sections are repeated, the way of telling is still awesome.
