I tell now of a desperate fight,
A secret devotion was at hand;
Betwixt the daughter of a knight
And celibate ruler of the land.
While all the kingdom bathed in sleep,
The lovers left the castle's rune.
What pain, it was, to silent keep.
To meet just at the rise of moon.
And in the mystic forest night
For every sunset, they would meet.
The king, consumed in azure light,
His noble lady he would greet...
Until the demons seized the land
And men were rallied to defend.
The crown prince forced to lead the fight,
To lead his warriors into the night.
The lady, forced to sit at home,
To wait unrested, all alone
And sick for her lord's very life
Which left this world amidst the strife.
As the night envelops me,
I am finally let free.
To the moon, I now belong,
Under sheets of honesty.
Sleep is a narcotic,
So my true heart here prevails,
As my eyes are shut and I detach
From the real world's troubled tales.
May I never yet awaken,
For my joy exists in me,
All the good is real, and the hate is gone
When I wish for it to be.
As for all that ails my spirit,
In my dream, it's forced away.
The Devil shall not get me here,
For asleep, I'll always stay.
The winds of the arctic,
Like daggers of cold.
The dark, silent deepness
Of a blue, icy hold.
Shards of wet glass
Sinking into the skin.
Slicing like razors,
Drawing blood, cutting thin.
Why, when I kiss you,
Do your eyes lose a tear?
My lips, are they painful?
Do they chill you, my dear?
Is it true, have I lost all the warmth
From before? I once burned with affection.
That me is no more, for I'm frozen and cold,
My skin has gone pale. I'm just an illusion,
Soul-less and frail. If you search in the glacier
Of hatred and pain, you may find my image
and chillen form slain.
five.Five is the number of times you worry he’s stopped breathing, as the surgeons carve around his heart, twisting away the plaque ridden arteries, and pulling a vein out of his leg. Five is the number of heart wrenching hours you and your family were waiting in the hospital room, worried that your lives would crumble, that there would be five members of the family instead of six, that five days out of the week he would not come home for dinner, that five kisses from him would no longer be given to his wife and four children. Five was the amount of fingernails you bit off while watching people enter and exit the waiting room, and the amount of minutes your mother spent on the phone, explaining that something was wrong. Five is the critical difference between holding a father’s hand as your mother cries into his heart shaped pillow. The difference between rejoicing and smiling weakly because he’s okay or carrying your father’s American-flag-covered-casket and watchin
A Guide to Writing DialogueWhat is dialogue, exactly? The definition from Merriam-Webster’s dictionary was several lines long, so I shall summarize it in a short sentence for the sake of the readers; it’s the writing that illustrates conversations between two or more characters in a story. We read and hear it all around us, but creating it in your own work can be a challenge. However, if you find dialogue an obstacle in your writing, then don’t push the panic button. In this tutorial, you’ll find by analyzing what dialogue can do and how to use it, you can turn your greatest fear into your greatest ally in your story.
What dialogue is
Like I’ve asserted before, dialogue is basically what the characters are saying to each other. It can be found in multiple mediums such as books, movies, comics, video games, etc. We even engage in dialogue daily without even thinking. When you talk to your best friend, a co-worker, or even your dog, you create dialogue. It’s exchang
