Within my chains

In Sheilas Mind"

I feel candle wax on my face I feel life without my fate , I feel you in my fate , I feel it might be too late,

why does my prisons fall upon my face, without choices I am beating alive, forget my prisons my life

I am feeling alone all alone

I am

I am completely fallen upon the ground, in the mist of my ashes I found I am found

and then the fallen the wings fall across the sand, they float upon the waters of heavenly hands, completely without my sins, I am falling without my wings, they burn across my back to make me me,

they fall across the prisons that no one knew, my only wings, they take me through , I am within my wings, I am within me

forget my sins they are prisons of lies,

forget my life it makes me hide,

forget my soul it has a side

its my own prisons its my life,

I am without my walls they cover me in blood,

they hide within this skin of foolishness and pride,

I listen to your lies you whisper in spews, they forget the hate they follow you

your my life if I am without my chains ,

you gave ,my prisons without my chains,

choices without , choices within ,

your my own heart, we are the same within our minds,

we are ,

we are

we are we.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

Patrick Johns: The Prince was an exciting read. I enjoyed the spoiled bratty protagonist and his drastic change through out the story. The world building was well though out and clear. The author did a great job painting a picture for the reader without having a map. I liked the connection to real life leaders....

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

Jacklyn Reynolds: As a mother of an Autistic child, I know how hard it can be. I love how beautiful you made everything. That's all I can say. I need to grab a tissue.

Jessica: I loved the title of this story, and that is what got me hooked. But reading this from beginning to end, it was amazing. How the character changed from someone on two legs to an animal on four was great. The emotions on this story is one to be remembered. There are a few grammar things that need ...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

MissMadokaKaname: I was impressed and moved by this work. The characterization and dialog were strong, and really brought everyone in the story to life. Also, the setting was handled in a believable and compelling way. The story captured the complexities and pain of love, and also the harshness of living in such b...

jseversky: Was amazing loved every second of it I really want to read more, and definitely would. Hope the author makes a 2nd book. Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, loved it. The author describes everything in in new and innovative ways, and love the 2 separate view points.

alsarahiddana: I've been hooked since chapter one! I love the characters they make me laugh and they seem very real. This story flows so nicely and the plot so far screams potential. I can't wait to read more.

Marie Roane: Loved this story from beginning to end!

Christopher Calvo: Truly a wonderful read and very well written! Love the characters and character development, and can smell the frybread as I read it! Can't wait for more as we delve into the Buffalo Summer.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...
