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 .”

Kayresia A. Bass: Again, the author has amazed me. Very good story right from the beginning. As the story begins, curiosity keeps you reading just to find out what is going to happen next. Gabriel is an average guy who finds out later he is not so average. He meets and falls in love with a woman named Tanya. I lov...

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). ...

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!

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 ...

Deleted User: What a story. It may be short and small but it is mighty and massive in creativity. However, I did not feel any romance in the story rather than a lot of horror. It was a great read and I cannot wait to see what this author has next on the agenda. Sometimes short stories have the best content and...

NRF: I love this story, it has a little bit of everything in it, mystery, adventure, murder, innocence, love and a surprise twist that will leave you hungry for more! Great read! NRF

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

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.

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!

Tony Lee: Great ideas. Some mistakes here and there, but not too much to break the immersion :) This was my second book here, and I'm pretty satisfied! Well I can't think of anything else to write so I'm just gonna fill the space up with random words. Magazine holder sidney sheldon first bible shack tom ha...

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 ...
