We are lanterns
You and I
But as the days go by
Forces I hate
And can't control
Pull you away
And as my world dims
My own light fades
Until it is gone
And all that can be seen
Is the cold moonlight
Reflecting off my panes
That once glowed
With warm firelight.

I Am Silence
Calm, Unease, Certainty, and Purity
What doesn't need a voice
In the place between words or actions
Creates me
We work in harmony
The crash of sound
It ruins our moment
My purpose will never be seen
I am ignored
When Emotion and I are understood
We may carry on
The world would Stop and Listen
And Hear what we have to Say.

A Splash of Color
"What are you doing here?"
I jumped in shock at the sound of the voice and looked around for its owner. A young man was staring at me, twirling one of his golf clubs. I didn't know what kind. For all the time I spent on a golf course, my knowledge about the game is full of gaps. I put a hand up to shade my eyes from the sun and looked up at the golfer dude.
"I'm thinking about life. This seemed like a pretty good place to do it. Problem?"
"Nah, this course could use some eye candy, preferably of the kind that can think for itself." He winked at me. Cheeky bastard.
"Oh good then, glad to be of service," I said with a heavy dose of sarcasm.
He chuckled. "No offense meant. My name is Westley by the way."
He was poorly named, I thought, no resemblance. "Will you answer all my questions with 'as you wish'?"
"Why, is your name Buttercup?" he asked with a goofy grin.
I rolled my eyes. "No, it's Natasha."
"Then I think not. Russian blood?"
"Not a drop."
"Well, fair Natasha, it is a pleasure to

Carport in your Kisser
My great-grandfather used to tell me, "Don't chase after timers because you'll only end up with a carport in your kisser." I never quite understood his advice until one Palm Sunday, I was gardening with my best friend Kimmycub. All of a sudden, we found an underground tunnel! It was green and spooky sounds came from deep within. Kimmycub saw something interesting inside, jumped in, and I never saw her again. Great-granddaddy was right!

Appearances Are Everything
Appearances are everything
At least that's what they say
And yet, every day
I pray, they're right
If appearances are everything
Then no one has to see
What goes on behind the mask
To conceal my misery
No one has to know
That he gets drunk
That his blood shot eyes
Terrify me
Haunt my mind
No one has to know
That the scars on my legs
Come from no accident
No one has to know
The fine line I walk
Every day, between okay
And insanity
Cause if I do my make-up just right
And my clothes are perfectly tight
And the jewelry that I made
Is proudly on display
No one has to see
The real me
Today before a mirror
I watched my eyes fill with tears
Then the second they cleared
Put on a smile that fooled even me
And felt a happy lie on my lips
I'm too good at this
But I don't care
Because if I dress up tonight
I think I'll feel alright
Just for a little while
I play dress up every day
To pretend it's okay
And they believe me
Because my act is flawless
And appearances are everything
That's what

The Golden Veil: Prologue
Run! She told herself. Don't look back, not even for a second, just keep running! And run she did. She ignored the pain ripping through her body, her heart, her mind, and put every ounce of energy she possessed into running away from what was causing it. The Black Panther cub at her side ran beside her with the same fervor, sensing the emotions of her young companion through their bond. The young witch's terror coupled with what the panther herself had seen was all the encouragement she needed to push her strength far beyond the limits she had ever dared to press even during their most vigorous training sessions.
Neither knew for how long they ran, only that they weren't safe yet. They had no idea where they were going. None of the places they knew were safe. They just kept running through the forest. Afternoon turned to evening, and evening into night. Still they ran, without even the light of the moon to guide them. Their stomachs growled, their legs, sides, and throats burned, and b

To A Future Without End
"To a future without end!"
They cried as they made merry
"To the pain that time will mend!"
Called those with burdens to carry
"To a path that will not bend!"
Rang, not a single voice wary
"To the message we will send!"
Toasted the king round as  berry
"To the lives that were lost."
The princess rose with her cup
"To the price our victory cost."
And everyone looked up
"To the calm after the chaos."
Her commanding voice echoed clear
"To the unity tragedy brings us."
For all the silent crowd to hear
"To the strong and beautiful princess."
Called a man in the back
"To the wisdom she is blessed with"
He leaned casually on a sack
"To the future queen."
"To the future queen!" echoed the crowd
"May she reign supreme."
Every glass drained and a father's eyes shone proud
:iconamaya2278:Amaya2278 1 0
Endless emotions
All but the motions
Downcast eyes
Countless lies
Distance, the key,
Silence and misery
Heath and happiness
Heart and spirit
On the ridges
Beloved bridges
Paths ahead
Tears unshed

Hello there guys! Long time no see! As you may have already noticed, I'm actually posting things again. I just posted three new songs! You can find them all in my songs gallery here:… Or individually here:… here:… and here:…

Please make sure to check them out and let me know what you think! <3

Also, I have a Tumblr account now, come follow me, it's the same name.

I also am writing fanfiction now, for The Hobbit and Harry Potter. You can find the Harry Potter stuff on ffn under this name, and you can find all the fics on my AO3 page, also under this name.

For those of you who follow my original story, I have good news. I don't really have a place where I live now to spread out my notes and work on the story the way I want to, but I will be moving in a couple months, and I will have an office at my new place. And in that office the manuscript will come together. I promise.

I hope you guys haven't forgotten me! I'm not gone, I promise! I just got lost... In a Thorin way... AKA epicly...

Oh btw, I got Skyrim. AND KOVU IS THE HOTTEST LION EVER! Okay, I'm done. Sorry about that.
  • Listening to: It&#039;s Chill, Lancifer feat. Meekakitty

Ok, I'll be honest, I'm terrible at creating any kind of artwork that doesn't involve slanted lines on graph paper. However, I do love to write. So here I am to drool over everyone else's artwork and hopefully find some people who like what I write and will encourage me to keep it up :)
