Ozymandias

An ambitious man
Displaced a neighborhood and threatened a world
As Tunnel dwellers watched helplessly
In the heart of the city
To become immortal.

Promises of Someday

A young man still carrying old scars
purposefully crosses the park
and enters a dark culvert.
After traveling the world,
Devin feels the pull of home.

Arabesque

Lisa
spinning and leaping
since childhood
in the cold, dark tunnels
warmed only by their praise, as she turns, and turns, and turns.

To Reign in Hell

Winslow, his dreams damped down,
championed the love he believed in, nonetheless. Braved danger, when that love – not his, yet his, his, too – was threatened.
Braved the depths and that bleak darkness
to stand forever, their guardian.

Episode: God Belle the Child

A broken, haunted maiden
Hear spirit seeking a shelter of loving warmth
From the icy winter storms
A shelter found, beneath the streets of freezing death
For in her the meaning of life grows

To Reign in Hell

Friend Winslow, a brother, in truth
Insists on embarking with him
After danger has claimed her,
To unknown depths
To protect a love believed in.

schießt auf einen Unschuldigen
in der Nacht
im Central Park
im Namen der Wissenschaft.

Remember Love

Vincent
Comes slowly awake at a soft touch of my lips to his
Tonight, after denying himself a wish
Of meadows and sunshine in Connecticut,
For obedience and duty came before dreams and happiness...

Vicky     2/2/2014 12:09:57 PM
Remember Love

The woman
Temps my son with foolish dreams of a life that can never be,
Tonight as she brings a - humph! - "safe" van
To one of our tunnel entrances
To take Vincent away from us and toward danger.

Vicky     2/2/2014 11:52:48 AM
Remember Love

Catherine
Offers me a trip,
A few days together, soon
At a place of her childhood
To share with me the gift of freedom.

M.     2/2/2014 11:02:35 AM
A curious Catherine
seeks out where Vincent may be
a few days after his birthday he doesn come to see-
So she follow him to mouse Chamber .
To see him and mouse ( a little surprised and amused) eat some giant Chocolate cookies smiling together.

When the blue bird sings

Kristophers imagination
brought to life the love that is
in the future of dreams
inbetween two worlds
because it is meant to be.

A successful, intuitive Irish writer
fearlessly walked with Vincent
one Halloween night
in the park
because she knew he was a kindred spirit

God bless the child

a lost woman, almost a child
strandet with no love and no hope
in the wonderful time of Christmas
in the streets of a cold city
to find a someone that cares and reaches out to her.

Ein neues Leben

Ein nobler Mann
weist eine hübsche junge Frau zurück
als sie ihn bittet bei ihm zu bleiben zu können
in seinem Bett
weil sein Herz jemand anderem gehört.

God bless the child

A noble man
send back a pretty young woman
as she asked to stay
in his bed tonight
because his heart belongs somewhere else.

A starving boy-artist
Dabbles in oils,
Dead of Winter cold.
A Fantastical man loves a Beauty in a red dress;
But only if you draw outside the lines.

LauraG     2/2/2014 6:04:39 AM
Boys, brothers, best of friends,
Whispering and laughing
Beneath the covers
All those long tunnel nights
Dreaming dreams

Zara Wilder     2/2/2014 3:50:34 AM
Walk Slowly

intuitive detective, she
immersed herself in mystery,
exploring by October night
a beauty's haunt, a lover's height
to guide illusive truths to light
