Okay, new story. It's sort of like a sequel type-thing to the first story I put up. It's not the same story line but... hopefully you get what I mean. It's kinda hard to explain. It's called 'Would You Ever...'.
Would you ever run to the waves crashing around deadly cliffs?
* * *
If you knew it was your fault you met the killer…
* * *
Would you ever want to run in front of a murderer to save another, but didn’t have the guts?
If it was the love of your life whose life was about to be taken.
If you were the one who insisted on walking back instead of getting a lift with your friend.
If the love of your life had been laughing heartily only seconds before.
If you were the one that got you both lost.
If you were the one who insisted on getting directions.
If you were the one who was ignorant to the knife in the murderer’s hand.
If you were the one who told him you were both lost and alone.
* * *
If you knew it was your fault the love of your life was dead…
* * *
Would you ever cry your heart out in front of a killer?
If he had just slit the throat of the love of your life.
If you hadn’t been brave enough, strong enough, to stand in front of him.
If your legs had started wobbling as the knife was raised to his throat.
If you had gasped when the first drop of blood fell.
If you had screamed when he collapsed in a red pool.
If you wanted to run, but didn’t want to leave him behind, dead or alive.
If you had looked up and seen laughter in the killer’s hard eyes.
* * *
If you knew it was your fault the killer would walk free…
* * *
Would you ever whimper in the dark as the man who killed the love of your life walked away?
If you crawled to the lifeless body and wept.
If you lay your hand on it’s chest, but couldn’t feel the rise and fall of breathing.
If you called pointlessly for a flicker of life, but had no answer.
If you took his hand in yours and pressed it to your face.
If you saw the cold, lifeless eyes staring back at you.
If you call into the night for help, but only one person, a stranger, heard.
* * *
If you knew it was your fault you couldn’t handle this…
* * *
Would you ever trust a stranger with the body of the love of your life?
If they were the only person who came to your call for help.
If they carried it away, supporting you while you tagged along.
If your throat, your eyes, and your heart all ached.
If you walked into a police station and were immediately surrounded with unwanted questions.
If you wanted to scream at them, to tell them to shut up.
If you eventually fainted into the arms of an officer.
* * *
If you knew it was your fault no one would know what happened…
* * *
Would you ever kick and scream as someone tried to help you?
If they tried to calm you down.
If you knew there must be a glint of insanity in your eye.
If you just wanted to wake up from that horrible nightmare.
If you knew you would never wake up from this particular nightmare.
If you would trade this night for all the horrible deaths you had ever dreamed of.
If you wondered what would happen if you had been the one who died.
If you wondered if the love of you life would feel as pointless as you did.
If you thought there was no point to life if the love of your life was gone.
* * *
If you knew it was your fault people would think you had gone to try and calm down…
* * *
Would you ever run out of a police station with people staring behind you?
If you ran down random crossroads until you collapsed from exhaustion.
If you looked around and only saw a map outside an information centre.
If you saw the brochures around it featuring the cliffs to the south.
If you suddenly had an idea that made you forget your exhaustion.
If you jumped up to memorise the map on the window.
If you found the quickest route to the cliffs.
If you started running down the roads to them.
* * *
If you reach the edge of the cliffs…
* * *
If you jump into the waves below…
* * *
If you were glad you will be with the love of your life again?
I know it's double posting but the last post would have been way too long. Hope you enjoyed. ;D
Hmm, it's very deep, Dinaria> It's kinda spooky, and very unique from other stuff I've read here. It's really good!
Lolz, thanks Cam ;D I'm glad you enjoyed it.
I really enjoyed it Dinaria, it was really effecting. In a way it could relate to the fires, as there'd be a few people who do lose their love ones, and want to go and join them. Well done.
Thanks Arwen ;D you're right, it could relate to the fires a bit. Weird how things that are alike you find out about around the same time. (Like when you learn the meaning of a new, complex word and hear it in context a few days later :P )
Okay, I've been abandoning writersmerge again. I feel really bad, so here's just something I'm about to make up on the sport :P
The sun shines through the window,
The leaves rustle in the breeze.
The stars shine in the dark night,
The water flows with the wind.
But as this is happening,
My heart is breaking anew.
Everything I see is him,
The sun is his golden hair,
The stars, his sparkling green eyes.
The leaves are his warm breathing,
The water, his bubbling voice.
But though I cry out my heart,
Though I am crying my pain,
I know he wasn't worth it.
And I know, as my heart breaks,
It will recover from this,
It will learn to love again.
I think that was alright for made up on the spot actually :P not great, but passable.
very nice. you do good work 'on the spot'
Thanks Deb ;D
Okay, I'm bored, so I've decided to make another poem... thought this one I'll actually think about more... hm... thinking hurts :P
HUNTER AND PREY
I crouch, terrified, as I see the mad glint in his eye,
I scream loudly, but he cackles in response.
No one can see, no one can hear what he does to me.
They can't see the blood, dripping from my pained wrist.
They can't smell the terrible fire, burning through my hair.
Their stomach's cannot turn as my eyes roll back.
And as I lay in a pool of my own red, sticky blood,
I know they will not come, I know they don't care.
I ran away, and now I will pay the ultimate price.
I should have known he’d follow me out of town.
I should have known he would hunt me no matter what I did,
No matter where I went, or what I would do,
He would hunt me, I would run, he would laugh, I would cry streams.
He would win, I would lose, and they would not care.
I would be another murder unsolved forever more.
I cry as he strokes the blade, I sob for life.
I straighten my face as I realise that he has now won,
My last tears go unfallen as I fall.
Oh Dinaria!!! it is so spooky but deep! I love it! cant wait for more!!!
Thanks Bambi ;D I'll try to get some more up soon... but homework's kinda crazy atm... actually I'm supposed to be doing some now... :P Oh well, I'll write some more soon.
Both of those poems are really good Dinaria. When I read Hunter and Prey, I was thinking of James and Bella :P Probably because I'm working on my Romeo and Juliet dvd cover, where Edward and Bella are my Romeo and Juliet.
Lolz Arwen, and thank you ;D
I love Hunter and Prey.
You always have the best endings. They give me chills.
Thanks Hannah ;D
Here's a poem I made a while ago. It's kind of terrible, but I figure... I don't know actually, I just like the rhythm :P
As it lies, in front of me,
It seems to laugh, in front of me,
It seems to stare, in front of me,
At the air, in front of me.
As it moves, next to me,
The thing that's there, next to me,
As it stirs, next to me,
I scare that thing, next to me.
I feel it watching, behind me,
I sense it twitching, behind me,
I know it's there, behind me,
It suddenly pounces, behind me.
I start to float, above me,
I start to rise, above me,
I start to panic, above me,
I see the light, above me.
As I look, below me,
I see the ambulance, below me,
I see that thing, below me,
My savage murderer, below me.
Wow! That's really effective repeating the phrase Dinaria. I like it.
Dinaria, you should so write the script for a horror movie :D
Thanksguys :) lolz.
Kimby, I might try to write a script for a horror movie now... hehehe |:| *feels evil*
i love them Dinaria! they are awsome :D
lol i'd love to see the script when your done, twould be great ;D
I like the rythym of it, too! I think you would be good at horror movie scripts... And I would read it, but horror stuff scares me : ;D
Of course I'll post up the script Helena, so of course you'll get to see it ;D
Lolz Cam, horror stuff scares me too. Once when I was writing a book (currently abandoned) I was writing about a demon that had entered the elfin city, and I was suddenly paranoid and had to keep checking under my desk and consoling myself that I had made it up :P lolz. This is the bit, it may be a bit confusing since you haven't read the rest, and I'll spoiler it (just for the sake of it :P ).
In the morning Simon woke again to a knock at the door. He got up and answered the door. It was Lilicia and she’d been crying.
“Come in, you look exhausted.” Simon said.
It was true, she did. She had bags under her eyes and kept yawning. She looked frightened too. She was looking around like a rabbit that had only just escaped a fox. Then he noticed a huge gash down the side of her leg, which he could see through a huge tear in her dress. He also saw a blood stain in her gold hair.
“What happened?” Simon asked.
“When you all left, Piers picked me up and put me on his back, right?” Lilicia started. “He carried me around for a while and we got to the huge fountain, you haven’t seen that yet, it was then I heard something breathing heavily. I suggested going to the lake and having a rest there. So we went there and I could still hear the breathing, I knew who-or what-ever it was had followed us. I casually asked Piers if we could go to the palace to see my friend Nira. He said okay, but I could tell he was getting exhausted. I said I’d walk my self, but he said he could carry me. I wanted to get to the palace so the guards and other elves that live there could defend us. I had a knife on me, but if was an elf, it could do magic. We were passing the fountain again and that’s when it attacked. First I saw the coal eyes, then I saw the red-leathery skin. I think I screamed, but I was deaf to everything thing except the demon’s breathing and snake-like voice that came from it’s mouth. I jumped off Piers, it pushed him into the fountain, and then it turned to me. I could have sworn those coal eyes could see into my very soul. It told me to go and it would only kill Piers, but naturally I wouldn’t. It circled me and I felt for my knife. I got a hold on it and turned to the demon but it was gone. I ran to get Piers out of the fountain. It sprang out from the fountain and slashed at my leg with its razor sharp claws. I concentrated on getting Piers out of the fountain. I used magic to create a shield. I could see the demon look around for something in the reflection of the water. I think it thought I couldn’t do magic. I managed to clear Piers’s airway, and heal the bruise on his head, but the least I could do for myself was stop the blood gushing out. I was crying so much that I didn’t see or hear the demon run back and throw itself against the shield. It broke. The demon ran at me and before I knew what was happening it jumped on my back and my head banged against the marble of the fountain. I felt blood run down my face. It was wet and sticky. I saw the demon run at me again, talons outstretched. I turned and thrust my dagger into it; I think I got its shoulder. I stopped the bleeding in my head and it retreated. I couldn’t follow it because I had to get help. I called Samna and told him what happened, he came and took Piers to the recovery centre. I was up all night warning everyone about it. My room is being searched for evidence, and I need somewhere to stay.”
So yes. Homework is so hectic atm. I've taken five pages of notes today for S+E, rehearsed a monologue for drama, started a powerpoint for a health assignment, and written some journal entries for English. I'd better go give mum some stuff to sign too :P Then I still have to finish the notes, finish memorising my monologue, do some swimming training, clean my rabbit cage, write some Animika (up to page 59 XD ), finish the English Journal entries, revise for a Science test on Monday, get some of my Maths homework done, clean my room, do some more of my health assignment, organise my file (not an easy task considering how much I deject it) and try to have a little time for myself :P I hate it how teachers ignore the fact that you have other subjects and other homework :P
I'm supposed to be doing some now, which sucks. Sorry for going on for this long ~:|
It's really good Dinaria. I enjoyed reading it. And I understand about the homework, but luckily I don't have much at the moment.
i like it very much Dinaria, tis good :nod: i know what your talking about with homw work i have apile of my own, not to mention my many assignments and essays ~:|
Thank you both :)
I envy you so much Arwen. :P
I forgot, I also have a science assignment due Friday... or Thursday that I haven't started ;D I love procrastinating... I think.
Ahh procrastination. My favourite thing to do. Good stuff D. I hope your homework turns out as well.
