The dance of veils

The dance of veils

We die without love, we die within and without pain , we die,

we share the same breath as it beats upon the flames, tongues in a room of snakes slither beneath the flames, the walls cave in the cavern as my eyes bleed to see the pain, it is my vision that creeps to keep me sane, I am not without you in the darkness of the room , my eyes pierce you beneath the bones of the blood we once new, I am invited unto your Castle you make your way to my table in care, You sit to watch me squirm as I am waiting to be fed,

You wait to taste my bones my shattered soul it was once a king, I see your pain , I feel your breath I feel you inside of me again,

You hold your breath beating your chest and falling to your knees so sweet, how can it be that im your prison now because of my Mirror you held so deep, the fading of the time fades into the beginning and needs to be checked, the clocks tick upon the walls , I am waiting on the pain to begin, my knees buckle holding my breath to hear your stories as they tell me lies, I hear your vanity profess your visions you know I knew but we both found our net, come in the hallways as my steps blow upon the belts, my feet walk the floors, you knew my name I had no rest, there was a time I began to share the closets they both hold our breath , do not fear what I must tell you , because the rest of my stories are the same beneath the curtains they fall upon the deaf,

Now as I sit in my chair ever so lightly playing the game, my smiles are without the vision my eyes are without my home, I hear what you say if only once you knew my name , it is the play mask I wear to keep you from my name and to keep you from my home, forget not my name never forget something I shall not tell,

there is nothing we both knew from the beginning , and now there is nothing we both felt .”

Dina Husseini: To be honest I never knew you could make a fantasy this scary. I really enjoyed reading your story. At first to be honest, it was a bit boring but then it got so interesting and fun and (also you even scared me at times). I would really love to see this story on the big screen. It does deserve sc...

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 -

kotabsavage91: This young author really knows her stuff. From the 1st chapter I was sucked in and entertained the book. The characters are rich and well thought out and the plot keeps you guessing all the way through to an imaginatively well exacuted showdown. Keep up the great work, I look forward to more of ...

Natasha Jade Smail: a good read and keeps you interested throughout the whole story and has some gruesome moments that were well described to get you into the story.

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). ...

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

noelia herrera: I could not stop reading this book. it was truly great and it caught my attention quick. there was some misspelled words and some misplaced. but overall, IT WAS FANTASTIC! great job. I recommended this book to all my family and friends.

M. Drewery: I was scrolling down the story list and stopped on Happy Days because I was briefly reminded of the TV show. I started reading the blurb and thought 'oh no another Zombie story' except it ended in the best possible way. Now I'm drawn into a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse, which takes a much ...
