(FR) Un jour ou l'autre - Promises of Someday

Dilettante ou caméléon
Errant éternellement
Vincent hantait son souvenir
Il trouva les réponses à la source
Nouvelle fierté, véritable identité.

Carole W     2/9/2014 10:22:00 AM
Just a girl,
And not a leader.
Mouse knows better.
In time,
Everyone will.

Magical night
Above he can walk freely
Showing his unique face
Questioned by no one
Until dawn he walks with his love
Every moment precious
Sunrise takes him home Below

Zara Wilder     2/4/2014 10:15:32 PM
Stormful nightmares portend
No greater love than this:
One lethal convergence Below
Wherein three hunters harvest names

This was inspired by several episodes:

Fear and worry ever warring with love and pride
A parent's dilemma
The desire to protect a precious, unique child
His certainties shaken when the boy becomes a man
Even though he knows that change must come,
Realization sometimes leaves him weary.

where the wall between the worlds grows thin

Edith     2/4/2014 5:35:38 PM
Very loving
Is our man.
Nice and gentle
Can he be.
Every loves him,
Not so mean.
To all he is our Vincent.

Listen to the sounds of dark stories
Above has broken some wing
Below has offered them glories
Yes, it has made their souls sing

Rest in the shade of the tunnels
I hope you can find here some peace
No fear and no hate is around you
To heal and to make all pain cease

Hear the wispers - our past dies
See the signs - our future arise.

When you ever dream a dream
here in this beautiful world
easy to live, easy to love
never held by boundries

There will be laughter and love
here in this beautiful life
ever free of limits

Boldly explore this beautiful time
love and laugh, sing and play
unlimited by lines
embracing imagination
blind to barricades
intense, challenging, full of hope
ready to fly on Pegasus wings
dearing to be just alive.

Spreading the wings
in this beautiful world
never bound by strings
give and take without regrets
see the world as it is ... for you.

Pater means "Father" in Latin
Another word for 'Despot,' Jacob?
Real power comes from brutality
And even Vincent knows it.
Copper and fire on your tongue?
Evil has a flavor, Vincent.
Look into their eyes for the last time.
See what they beheld?
Unrepentant rage!
Son of mine, at Last!

Marianne "Lioness" Nielsen     2/4/2014 10:59:37 AM
Sorry! Forgot my name in the 1st submission!! Based on "A Happy Life":

No-1 ever told her, her mom was THAT sick!
All she knew, was that her mom died.
Never again could she seek comfort in her mom.
Catherine felt so lost, even 20 YEARS later.
You must follow your heart, her good friend said!!

Mini     2/4/2014 12:15:13 PM
Together by familiar bond
Underground our hearts reside
Never forgetting to REMEMBER LOVE
Newcomers always welcome with open arms
Everlasting friendships formed
Love of a BEAUTY and a BEAST
Kindred spirits are we.....
Incandescent candle light soothes our souls
Never passing up a chance to be together. We are.....


T'Mara     2/4/2014 11:33:45 AM
I'm not quite sure if the first letters must form the episode title, or if any word connected with the episode would be fine. I therefore did one each!


Several old people
in the way of profit.
Elliott wants them gone,
glorious projects in mind.
Eventually they keep their homes.

Promises of Someday

Boldly going to strange places,
Roaming the world, brave and free.
Oh, those sweet childhood memories!
Two boys once grew up together,
Hopes and dreams they shared.
Escaped from confining tunnels
Rid of his father's rules
sought one of them peace in vain.

Mini     2/4/2014 12:01:21 PM
Windy, winding stair trek
Imaginations run wild
Night time darkness prevails
Trembling excitement of the crowd
Energetic children squirming
Round the tables they sit
Father begins the speech
Each candles light is passed
Silenced awe for a moment
The celebration begins....


Marianne "Lioness" Nielsen     2/4/2014 10:59:21 AM
Dancing light, music and friends...left behind.
Even though the tunnels are 'a hole in the ground',
Vincent reminds him, the "hole" is his home.
In the tunnels, he now feels like a stranger,
Never told anyone, where he was, what he did!

Good-hearted boy,
Ever helpful and kind.
Orphaned but not alone.
Freckles galore!
Fond of Catherine.
Remarkably compassionate.
Essential member of the community Below.
Young with an old spirit.

M.     2/4/2014 9:21:53 AM
Deep in the night thinking
Ever on tour never at home.
Very tired to run from memories good and bad.
In hurry to never get catched and to help without telling.
Never so relieved as finally being at home by his "father" and brother!

Cordi     2/4/2014 9:14:18 AM

Gold, silver,
Other jewellery
Lay in a ancient ship
Deep down in the tunnels.

Die Nacht der MASKEN (Masques)

Mitten in der Nacht
an einem besonderen Tag
sind zwei unterwegs
kennen keine Angst.
Einfach nur sie selbst,
keiner schaut hin.

Rose M     2/4/2014 7:58:49 AM

The loss so sudden
How to regain equilibrium?
Aimless, adrift, alone
Needing strength from his proximity.
Knowing their path is uncharted

Yet yielding to faith in their shared destiny.
On stunned lips she pressed a kiss conveying
Unending gratitude and love.

Claire     2/4/2014 7:17:54 AM
Daredevil chameleon
Ever moving on, a restless soul,
Vincent a beacon in his memory.
In the Tunnels lay all the answers.
New life awaiting, Devin Wells walks prouder.
