Winter's LossWinter pressed frosty lips to his consumptive lover's cheekWinter's Loss by childofthefallen
Death, death sweet and silent,
From Autumn's auburn brow, the last traces of color departs
And ill-begotten, lonely Winter bids farewell
To his lost love's whitened brow.
He wanders, aged, weary, leaden-souled,
Ill-at-ease and frozen to the core
He moans embittered cries and summons grey clouds
To blot out sparkling suns and azure skies
As he lonely roams across freshly whitened plains
And besets the Earth in blankets cold and chilly glass
Or sits in iced and brooding silence
And frosts the Earth in solemn solitude
Til melts his icy heart in season's turn,
And joins in death his lady lost.
Each day with regrets of its ownEach day with regrets of its own;Each day with regrets of its own by childofthefallen
Happy but hindered by hesitation;
I don’t have all I could have if I tried.
DanaI figure I can sigh at life if I want to. I figure I have enough of my own troubles to be able to. I said that to my parents once. They just laughed. Not in a mean way, but they didn’t take me seriously. I think that’s the trouble with telling adults things; they don’t take young people seriously. And the kids at school don’t understand me, nor I them. I think when I graduate in two years it will be without the fanfare or friends that I thought would be there.Dana by childofthefallen
My school adviser suggested that my parents put me in counseling a few years ago. They sent me, for a while, but I don’t know what happened, but eventually the sessions just petered out and I didn’t go anymore. That was what it was like with Sunday school. And ballet, but I did like that. I guess maybe I never said so enough.
As soon as I was old enough, I decided to get a job. I’ve always read a lot, but I started buying magazines a lot until I ran out of money. The weekends and h
ForeverWe waited for moonbeamsForever by childofthefallen
To fall like rain and unhinge us
From a fabricated reality.
We waited forever.
The only magic is love and beauty and faith.
I believe in souls because I can feel mine
Burn and shift inside of me
And I can see yours breathing with mine.
Somewhere above our heads
Is a silent, empty heaven
That knows no time or pain,
No kaleidoscope of colours that flutter or sing.
How long have I walked here
And what will I see next-
All these things I want to know but can’t.
Let’s run as fast as we can
Faster than we ever dared, fast like our dreams
Laugh at the world, so small beneath our feet
And spin it off its axis.
We’ll run forever.
