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 .”

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless.

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion on the grammar is to use www.grammarcheck.net. I have it bookmarked on Google Chrome. I see myself in the determination in this beautiful story! I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have dreams that I have been working hard for, too! The humor made me laugh!

William Elliott Kern: cthanold123 congrats on your submission to Inkitt.com..............your story and plot are weaved perfectly..........fine imagination, excellent writing. Wish it was a longer Story, but it does suffice to fill my plate for your works............The punctuation and Grammar were okay, but your sto...

Lacey Eder: The stories remind me of the chilling 2 sentence stories on Reddit. Creepy, but not too scary and short. There were a couple of spelling errors throughout, which probably should've been taken care of beforehand. But, if this were available on Kindle Unlimited for $1-5, I'd consider buying it then.

Juzme34: Once I started reading I didn't want to stop. A few minor grammatical errors caught my attention, but a quick edit can fix those. I found the main character's view interesting, and her thinking process a bit odd. Yet it was easy to follow her train of thought. The story ends with the reader wanti...

danijelstoilkovic: I really like this story. The characters, the mysteries, that bonding in the end, but I would really like to see what happened next. Is there a second part? And this would really be one cool horror movie and if I was the director, I wouldn't change a thing.It's awesome!

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.
