the PromiseHer mother left home in the fresh morning to sell vegetables to the fair, with the promise to come back before her bedtime and tell her a story.the Promise by ForestoFairies
Her cousin came in the warm afternoon to say that he had seen her mother dying at the fair ; her last words: "Tell her I didn't forget the promise".
Her bedroom window opened in the humid evening to let a whisper from the distance come in, her mother's voice from the underworld to keep the promise.
Death isn't a fresh perspectiveI saw my motherDeath isn't a fresh perspective by Tangled-Tales
swallowing something small
when I was just a child
The anguish in her eyes
faded, as she told me
it was just a
with a little extra kick
maybe years later,
that's how I convinced
to swallow fifteen,
give me a fresh perspective;
in the end,
my breath reeked
instead of mint.
The HollowOn the dreariest of days that felt as if it should be DecemberThe Hollow by LucariOH
Existed a boy in a town its name he can't quite remember
Eyes full of everything, that is apart from wonder
Looking up at the clouds, talking their thunder
Everyday for the boy was beginning to feel the same
'Today's are Yesterdays, Yesterdays are a pain' The boy would proclaim
Looking at himself in the mirror, at the start of every day
That would be the case if it were not for this rain
He ventured out of his room, his home, for the first time in forever
Not knowing what to do but he had to leave however
But he didn't know why, there was a feeling or lack of in his gut
Which got neither better nor worse once the front door had shut
So walking down the road he heard a crow laugh and sing
What he thought was his name, no it couldn't of been
Raising his hood over his head he kept plodding on
Though the difficulty in walking suggested something was wrong
Every step drew harder and he found that his pocket full of change
