PerpetuaYoure my first thought at dawn
And my last as sleep claims me again
Youre my breath, my heartbeat
My every wish and the end to all pain.
Youre the deep mystery of twilight
And the smell of summer rain.
Youre the first star of morning
Come to watch my world again.
Youre my music, my rapture
My bliss, my phantom in the night.
Come whisper your soft words
Stay with me until first light.
Hold me close and share my soul
Your heartbeat is my lullaby.
Watch over me forevermore
And we shall never die.
HomeWe walked for an eternity along the moonlit path
Guided only by the stars of night, the wind and the rain.
Our horns held high, piercing, an immortal staff
To catch others, should they fall along the way.
Days and nights held no substance, turned to years
Seasons took their toll, and even our great power
Failed to catch those for whom we shed our tears
For help can we only those who seek such.
Our numbers dwindled, for death and desertion prevailed
Some lost hope, others their heart, but fain
Was the price as high for those whos very souls were ailed.
They wandered from the light into shadow.
At long last, when the last heart dwindled, a flickering fire
In an ocean of pitch night, the fields opened.
We saw our home, our kindred, and those we admire
We caught the breath of life once more.
Those that remained mourned those we had lost
The flesh had faded, discarded by a spirit disheartened
But this new life was ours alone, given in trust
By the land itself, for she alone remembered
Forever-WildsWe walked the path of the Forever-wild,
Hearts caught in our throats
Eyes white and wide
And every fear snapping at our heels
Fraught with the nightmares of a child.
Un-named dangers at every turn
We ran for countless nights
Seeking to flee the one thing that followed.
It was fear only, fear of itself
Which we wished to banish.
Shadows played until the dawn broke
Piercing sunlight burnt our eyes,
Now creatures of the night itself.
For we had feared and now
We had become the feared.
Eridus's storyShe smiled politely at me, the dear girl, as I watched her wind her way through the sprawl of drinkers and merrymakers. Caught halfway between the tender hands of youth and womanhood, her walk held the shyness that came with her transformation, as if she were not yet confident in her own skin. I watched her gaze linger on my own before she quickly turned away, blushing as if she had been caught doing something unspeakable. I could see her bite her lower lip, trying to hids a smirk fueled by delight or curiosity, or both.
Someone had noticed her, the young woman, and it mattered not who that person was, nor where their intentions layed, simply that the attention had been given to someone who was obviously seeking approval for the way she was, like most other girls her age. Hardly expecting any kind of gratitude for my mindset, I mused, my interest in the girl remained on a purely platonic level, a fleeting one at that, rather than anything of substance. I doubted, however, t
