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.

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!

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.

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...

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...

Sandra Leigh: excellent story. Lots of classic fairy tale elements with a fresh spin. Very much looking forward to the sequel. However, there are a number of typos and minor awkward sentences. I occasionally work for my publisher as an editor and would not mind editing this for you. Feel free to contact m...

Jade Jez: What a wonderful, immersive book from Eliott McKay. It starts with an air of mystery, introducing main character Michaela, the clumsy teenager. From there, it whisks you off your feet and dumps you into a beautifully written world where you can almost smell and hear everything happening. I go...

Barbara Ponder: This book is aimed at teenagers, however the style and content caught my attention and it is a long time since I was a teenager. Intriguing and enlightening novel I hope there will be a sequel soon.

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...

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish. The only flaw I could find is that I wish I could have read more. This book is certainly...

Alice Liu: Whoa! I've been wondering how would the Maurauders react to Harry's life and here we go! YOU ARE THE BEST! All the characters are consistent with their personalities shown in the book!

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Maria Appkova: I enjoyed the plot and the idea. and the need to change her awesome idea to save others people in city. and romance in the story involved. just romantic btw her and henri. Good work.
