And this is me…

My name is Ashley, I’m in my mid 20’s.  I have a wonderful son who attends Head Start.  I graduated High School in 2006 and that was the last time I ever written anything.  It’s been 5 years since I’ve had this writers block and I need to break it.

Since leaving High School:

  • Met my sons father
  • Had my son
  • Left my sons father
  • Lost my job
  • Began playing world of warcraft

That’s a sum of the last few years.

Looking back on the things I did write in High School, I realize how cliché I was.  Just another teenager who looked to the darkness.  The problem was, for me it wasn’t a ‘fad’ as some people call it.  I still look to it.  But for my son’s sake I do not dress like I did back then nor do I revolve my life around the dark things.

Aside from that, this is my frist piece of writing in 5 years.  Inspired by this video:

The Slaves Amulet

Tonight’s the night I’ll vanish
Leave this place forever
Rid myself of these foolish chains
Put the horrors of tomorrow behind

Dark was the sky as the night came upon the lands of grey
Ice that sparkled brightly with the sun
Now shone dully upon the pale moonlight
And the wolves in the forest howled
And the panthers of the night came about

    Tonight’s the night I’ll vanish
The storm be my friend and hide my tracks
As I disappear from this forsaken life
Put the horrors of tomorrow behind

Snow fell slowly as the moon centered in the sky
Black clouds covering the stars
Making her trek through the halls
Of a stone castle
The amulet upon her neck shone

    Tonight’s the night I’ll vanish
Tomorrow’s the day I’ll be gone
As I disappear from this forsaken life
I’ll leave behind this amulet

Golden chain with a blood-red ruby
An heirloom given to her
From fellow slaves
It glowed this night
It’s never done this before

    Tonight’s the night I’ll vanish
Leave this forsaken life behind
Tomorrow I’ll be anew
In a world where no one knows

Her foot touched the snow
Covering the black slippers she whore
The storm came quickly
The winds howled with the wolves
Tonight’s the night…………….

Tonight’s the night I’ll vanish
Rid myself of these horrors each day
In a world where no one knows
Is the dream I have…….

Continuing her path into the forest
Never slowing never stopping
Footprints scurrying by
As the animals keep close eye

    Tonight’s the night I’ll vanish……

The amulet fell to the ground
Blood seeping from the ruby
Beside the golden chain
Her body lay frozen in stone
Covered by snow as the storm passed by
