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 .”

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

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 ...

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 -

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!

ahattar4096: The only part. Get annoyed of is how they ask soooooo many questions here and there and it just makes it a bit boring for me. Like so boring that even some I skip through and after I do it has nothing to do with what they will next talk about in the story. My opinion is tha mabye the questions th...

shotgundriver: As with all horror fiction, the reader must be able to suspend disbelief to digest this story. Fortunately, the first-person style of the story is so casual, and the protagonist, Ashley, so familiar on many levels, that I found myself sacrificing sleep to stay up and read, as if I was anxiousl...

Pam Lobato Ceja: The plot is interesting although for me the ending feels a bit rushed, since a lot happens in very few pages. I did notice a few grammar mistakes here & there, but nothing too noticeable.Overall, I enjoyed this greatly.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

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...

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 ...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.
