Sorry for not posting one yesterday. I'll post two to make up for it...

[The Fall of Icarus ]


The sun rises slowly
The ploughman ploughs
The sheepherder watches his sheep
The ships sail on
The port town wakes


Unnoticed to everyone
Icarus is in the water
The sun had melted
Those wings of wax
His struggle with death
Caused amazing amounts of
Fear to surface


Screams in the distance
The ship lets down its sails
Screams in the distance
The herder shrugs and looks away
Screams in the distance
The ploughman just has to finish
Screams in the distance
The port town lay quiet


Death approached like a shadow
Stealing away Icarus's last breaths
The boy went limp
Sunk low into the water
All that remains are feathers
Light on the water's surface


[The Unnoticed Beauty]

The lighting played part
But certainly not much
For the beauty displayed
Was certainly her own

Those cerulian eyes
Soft porcelian skin
Amazing velvet hair
Pale and Beautiful

She was one of amazing grace
The way she moved...
Simply amazing

But tore herself down
With acts of pain
She held the blades close
And watched the blood
Such disdain

The beauty unnoticed
He vowed to protect
With light in his eyes
He balled up his fists

Never again did the beauty hurt
Never again did she dance with blades
Never again was she alone

-St. Augustine

"You lot. You spend all your time thinking about dying. Like you're going to get killed by eggs or beef or global warming or asteroids. But you never take the time to imagine the impossible. That maybe you survive." -The Ninth Doctor
