Photographs

The silent pictures hanging

in vivid flashes of black and white;

A hundred fading figures

of a million epic tales.


Each beautiful moment, frozen in a frame

--- a snapshot of a timeless jewel;

Even the times when darkness reigned,

images were bound with iron hold.


The torture of the oppressed and

aftermath of a battlefield,

are as worthy of a reminiscent

as the parade of the victor

and when the beacon was ignited.


The cries of a fallen soldier,

the scars of the lone survivor,

holds as much significance as

the union of two old lovers and

birth of one new fighter.


Thy banner be waving in war or in glory,

A flag caging the flames or unleashing the fire,

Fall hard to the doom and bounce back even higher

--- it's all preserved in the heart of history.


When the day comes and my mind fogs---

My memory fades with forgotten stories;

The photographs in these walls,

Will have the chronicles reborn.

chariethomas7: I love the plot line on how it's not just how Elizabeth has to deal the her lover but her ex husband and child. I personally scared that she would get caught with her child but not Ben. I would love if this story can continue. The ending is making me want more.

graceeming: I thought the whole story form the beginning was captivating, it really gave you the hunger that you were longing for in a story. Yes the end was not something that I enjoyed, but I recommend this to anyone that enjoys fantasy of this type.
