Sickles of lies

What would become of me if I was left without you , you had my breath in your hand, you had my heart in your lies , you had my only soul that walked without my eyes, I have walked without my soul for so long, and then I was without my hands and looked they where walking beside me with my arms outstretched beyond what could had been , what did my eyes see, what did my hands see, the cover of the lies, the blankets of feeling, those things that my heart feels , and then love will lie,

it takes the form of Punishment , the joy of the never-ending cause, that thing we cannot handle we cannot obtain, we cannot give to our own self of lack , we as the prisoner of hope are the lost , we are the lost , we are the cause we are that which we cannot feel , we are. and if we see our own selves beneath the oceans of blood how can it be that which we are within our own prison , we will die. we will die from the pain , we will die from the books, we will die. that which the mortal body falls beneath , that thing the heart has the choice and the capability to form an illusion within the time , we are that which remains the punishment of ourselves, we are our own enemies , we are our own self of lack our prisons of those things that which we cannot obtain , our tears would be kept within our prison of hope , we are the writer of our own stories, we are the writer of our own words, we are lost within our own prisons…

we can no longer make a form of a bridge for those that take from us, we can no longer give head to the form of  prisons , we can no longer give our forms of blades, we can no longer give our measures of hope we are our blades of summer as the Sickles form within our hearts, are transgressions are without measures and our time has taken its form within the sounding board of homes.  for without its measure we can no longer be , and without our measures we can no longer roam this earth to be within our conformity , we are lost, we are lost without our home , we are lost without our hope , we can no longer be the beauty within our own souls, we can no longer be our shadows of our minds, we can no longer be our own chalice of our blood within our own blades of torment, we are finished.

we are finished within our prisons walls , and we will be finished upon this plane , we are finished beneath our souls , and we are finished beneath the hopes of everything we hold , we hold that flower , that flower of hope , that flower that surrounds itself in the sun light of beaming hopes , that sun light that gives hope that sun light that has beauty , that sun light that gives warmth to the soul , sit in the sun of the future and hold your breath , hold your breath until nothing makes sense anymore , nothing makes sense, hear the heart beat and then know that nothing makes sense.

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

Lauren Suzmeyan-Raine: I'm so glad you found a place to post your stories. I was horrified when I saw yours had been taken down, they are definitely the best 'reading' stories I've ever read. And I've made it my business to read every one I can. Well done.Lauren

RubyScars: I absolutely love your story! It killed me when I finished, I read it all at once and then it stopped at the epic cliffhanger! Uggggggh. But, that said, it just means that you have done such a lovely job. I am so in love with your complicated characters, and even the ones I didn't like you slowl...

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

mrh: I love this story soooo much! This is such an incredible twist on Harry Potter's story. I have loved every word of it. I hope you will write more soon! I want to know what happens next sooo bad! Please write more!

europeanlove: I gotta hand it to you. I love reading. I read books everyday. When the book is good I can read it in probably 13 hours. Your story was amazing. Great prose, very imaginative. Incredible dialogue. I am deeply impressed. Keep it up.

KathyJoy: Supernatural fiction (particularly werewolf and vampire stories) has been popularised greatly by works such as Twilight, which is not entirely a bad thing, but it has led to the genre becoming very stale very quickly. It is a relief, then, to read Aconitum which is bursting with originality, st...

Steve Lang: I thought this story was imaginative, and well thought out. I also think it was an original piece, and not a rehash of previous scifi stories I've read in the past.Thank you for the effort put into this tale, and I look forward to reading more of your work!

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective. I think that they would be more than a few people that want to know what happened at Hogwarts during that last year.As far a...

summerstone: Seriously this is one of the best books I've ever read. The plot is intriguing, I love the narrative style. Its very descriptive and unique, with minimal cliches.
