Lost in DreamsLost in a dream I saw a maiden danceLost in Dreams by alex-mg
And when she sat down by the river stream
Plunging her feet in the shallow waves
A mist descended, kissed her and fled
Everything that before was just and fair
Fell as rain forming shattered crystal shards
Each of them a cry, a dream, a tear
Everlasting is the war that I declare
While lying extinguished by the bewitched sparkling despair
Torched in a pile upon which you are
Still poisoning my weary heart
And as the fire tongue goes high
I won't lament your fall
Instead I'll dance around the burning branches all night
Urged by fury's call
Dreams on the barren field did last
Spread their wings rose up swallowing me whole
So now I am ascending the starry stairs
Running for I am scared
Entering into a plain but dear refuge...
The Rest of Your LifeI want all of you to think about something.The Rest of Your Life by H3LlsinG-p3rS0N
Think about your life.
What did you do today that made it worth while?
What could you have done?
Today I experienced the phrase "My life flashed before my eyes",
But I was in a classroom.
A man walked into our school so casually, armed.
Everyone stayed quiet and waited to see what would happen.
We all gathered in one spot in our classroom, turned off the lights and locked the door.
Our teacher said she would protect us, but then it crossed my mind.
What would happen if he came in here with a gun?
Would I be able to protect my friends and peers?
Would I die?
The police arrived just in time for him to not hurt anyone, physically.
My friends and I are now scarred now for the rest of our lives.
I will never look at that classroom and that school the same way ever again.
I will look at my teacher more carefully and proudly now that she said she would risk her life for us.
After we were safe I realized something,
I could have died today,
I close my eyes...I close my eyes and I feel the presence of another..I close my eyes... by YankeeGirl719
It feels so familiar..yet so foreign..
Been such a long time since I felt the warmth..
Of another who can love me..touch me..make me smile.
I open my eyes and I see nothing...
It is a dark place where I lay...
Been alone here for an eternity in the cold.
There is no one longing for my company..I close my eyes once more!
