Piece by piece, the world is replaced with machinery... Written because I was in class, and there were birds outside. Something seemed out of place to me.
Continuing with the overuse of that Corinthians quote, 'O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?' (1 Corinthians, 15:55) This is the sequel to Cried the Reaper so make sure you've read that! We find out what happens to Aida and Daron after the fall. For the love of all things pastry, please don't kill me at the ending. I'm very, very sorry. All poetry (c) me. EDIT: Thanks to the mods for the Mod's Choice, and to everyone who's commented! My eyes practically fell out of my head when I saw that...especially since Cried got a Mod's too! Golden feathers dance in my eyes. ^_^
You may already know her story; it is an old, old story. It is the story of a garden, and the loss of perfection. You may already know Lilith's story, but this is not hers. This story is not so old as that, for Lilith is older than all things. This story is about Eve. This is Eve's story of the garden and the snake's secret smile. I was a little hesitant to write this at all, and even more hesitant to put it on Elfwood. It does have a heavy religious tone to it, but I'm not trying to preach anything. I've been obsessed with telling Lilith's side of the story, and when someone suggested I tell Eve's, I couldn't resist. I apologize if this offends anyone in any way. Glossary of Hebrew terms (italics) at the end of the story. Comments and critiques welcomed. Enjoy!
A ghostly woman will dance forever...and her husband will search for her until the end of time. Two poems that really need to be read together...sad stuff. Partially inspired by The Scottish Widow by J.E. Shannon here on Elfwood.
And then there was Aida, just for Hanna! This turned out angstier than I meant for it to be, but I still like it. Aida is the Angel of Death-one of the five dark angels, a necessary evil. And the rest, you'll have to find out! 9/13/04-Guhbuhduhhuhwha? Mod's Choice? Me? ...Thank you all so much for your comments! You make me very happyful. And thank you to the Mods! *beams* For everyone who asked...yes, this will be continued, and yes, I'll let you know when. ^.^ Oh, yes. All poem-bitties are (c) me.
Written for the Muffin Girl! Go here. Now! This is actually disgustingly overdue. Miffy won a contest I had to bring me the heads of 15 flamers. She passed with flying colors! So here we are. Guest appearances by Brooke the Bloody, Obi-Wan Cookie as Vida, and my poor insane brother Noah. They all participated too, but apparently no one comes as close to coolness as does Miffy.
Cliffhangers. Bwaha. Next in this series is a similar story, but Aida next time. Then Sidya, Daron, and Lesetan. *Then* we find out when happens to them after the fall. Bwahaha! Before you read, keep in mind that the angels are how *I* want angels to be, not how Christianity or Judaism shapes them. Heaven here works how I want it to. Anyway, Redemption is one of the five dark angels-one of the necessary evils. She's not a happy angel, no... (This is the revised version) Oh, yes. And all poem-bitties are (c) me.
There is only one rule in all of Creation that remains the same: Lilith feeds. ** (Mods: Dang, I knew I forgot something. I SORRY!)
'Power,' she said, 'I will give you power unimaginable.' 'In return for what?' 'Blood...I will take it from you in blood.' And he said yes, the fool. ** As noted below, the bit of poetry italicized belongs to someone else. The plot has since changed in The Lonely One, my always in-progress novel, but this was originally how Danal, King of Azon, would bring about the destruction of his kingdom, leaving his daughter, Sayna Rian, to pick up the pieces. He makes a bargain with the War Goddess R'naya to restore Azon to glory; in return she will eventually come back and end his House, and someone else will inherit the kingdom. When the time comes, he refuses to pay. Lady R'naya of War, so rarely happy to begin with, does not treat Azon kindly.
