Message from Writer

If you find inspiration with this, let me know. I would love to see what you guys do.

Half the names on the list had already been crossed off.

Check out Rohan's Defender and Coolgirl! Honestly, these are some of the most awesome people ever! And they write beautifully! Also, books4life is working on an HG fanfic and you NEED to go read it!

Also, if you need someone to rant to... I'm right here, ready to listen. And if you ever need someone to do a review, I'm here. And if you need a hug, I've got a few of those, too.

LMK if you'd like to be updated on any of my series.

When the Stars Are Dust

September 27, 2020


Tell me when the stars are dust
coating my pale fingers.
Tell me when the moon will fall
and the light from brilliance lingers.
Tell me when I dance
beneath a dying sky.
Tell me then and there
exactly how I die.

Because you know, don't you
Your face hides a million things.
I know you know I hate you
As every falling star sings.

Will you kill me simply because you can
and lay me on the cold, hard ground?
Will you kill me with a poisoned cup
to take my heavy crown?
Will you kill me like you did all before
with all your wicked lies?
Will you kill me just because
every princess dies?

Because you are here to kill
I can read that one truth on your face.
And you do not know that I can kill
And put you in your place.

Oh, I don't like to hurt people
the way you are willing to.
Oh, I won't hurt my people
just because of you.
Oh, I can't hurt the people
but I know you will.
Oh, I don't hurt these people
but I can leave you lying still.

I am a queen and I have secrets
Just like what you hide.
You are a killer with evil secrets
And you will keep it deep inside.

Tell me when the stars are dust
how I will die one day.
Tell me when the moon will fade
that you will run away.
Tell me how you tried to kill me
but I am here to stay.

    this is so so so so so so so gorgeous. The rhyming is so perfect. I can never figure out rhyming for my poems. I'm working on it tho! But you make it seem so easy and the flow is so natural! great piece of work!
