Burned without a Choice

Burned without a choice

Burned without a choice,

Wishing in the wishing well,

falling upon my falling dwells , falling upon the broken glass

falling upon everything in my mind

giving you everything I had you gave me dead

came upon the mountain tops , only to fall down

came upon the ground to fall back on the stones

sure you should had known my name

giving me Birth to this losing game

insanity calls my fame without my fortune

giving me everything but perfect pictures

you show yourself without a blameless fault

you hide but give me a curse,

breath stolen without the fortune

love kindness it falls upon the dead,

you shout without the voice

Thunders fall upon the ground

clouds fall without the sound

nothing now I can call , I have lost my voice but I am still alone,

Screw the World screw the game

nothing matters but nothing but fame

losing games lost without a choice

I find myself lost within the game

Clouds show you sun , without the rain ,

knowing it comes all over again,

whats the point within this losing game

giving you everything but you keep me sane

Heart beating without my choice,

Love fills it without our curse

Breath upon my Neck of choices, curses.

Choices but curses giving me time.

Kat Paul: I know you mentioned thinking of making this into the introductory chapter of a longer story... What you have so far definitely intrigues me! My favorite bit is the twist about poor Bergen giving the creature the inspiration for its identity. What would interest me the most in the rest of the s...

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). ...

Bradley Darewood: I really really really liked this. I just voted for you!The voice is flawless-- I can't write men as well as you do and I have a penis. Maybe I'm narcissistic but I particularly enjoyed the moment where he muses about how artists would do better in such a solitary job. But my favorite moment ...

shadowmaven: At first, the word "Dagon" threw me, making me think that this was going to be a story based on one of Lovecraft's, and was pleasantly surprised--no, make that thrilled--when it wasn't (honestly, I like your mythos more). Your writing is so lyrical, deftly capturing this tiny village and the rela...

Shannon Rohrer: This is probably one of the most imaginative stories I've come across in a long time. You have hooking down to a fine art; every chapter has been as engaging as the one before it, the story unfurling in a way that is easy to follow and paced perfectly for each round of events or backstory. Lookin...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

Resting-Madness: I've been in love that strongly, that I could see myself in the same situation as Surgio. The slow crawl of desperation was well depicted, I could feel myself leaning close to the screen, like he and I were conspiring together on how to construct this Frankenstein of Adela. And that's written thr...
