The Girl And Her Wyrm

Folder: 
To Be Illustrated

"The Castle was gigantic. 

Expansive, was it's wide thrust,

filled with cracks, crevices and uneven bricks

pock-marked with mortar turning to dust.

 

Inside the deep recess

was a dormant terror,

up in it's highest tower,

a princess lived, none fairer. 

 

But both were locked up,

the furnace inside the gargantuan beast

kept the Castle warm,

the ovens hot, promoting many a feast. 

 

But lest the monster

breaks its shackles!

As once had happened before,

the quest none could tackle.

 

Knight after knight

fell to the flame,

the winged lizard licking tongues

of fire all about, untamed. 

 

Many an arrow was shot

from hunters brave, 

but no purchase for any arrow

was, by the monster hide, gave. 

 

Spear was no better,

having been thrown hard and true,

but not a single mighty heft

would force a metal tip through.

 

Then one day,

the princess who lived above,

just asked, 'give me a chance!',

but her father would allow no tug.

 

So that night,

while the great serpent ravaged the land,

she scaled down her tall tower

with the most daring plan.

 

She crept along the meadow,

in the cold of the moonlit night,

and up the the snoozing beast

she stomped her boot with all her might.

 

The beast sprung up,

startled awake by such a petite thing,

but before he bellowed flame,

she started to sing.

 

Sweetly, softly, 

she sang out her heart,

and through spirit, ripped hers out,

and handed it over, so that they'd never be apart.

 

Since then,

the two remain locked up with no regret.

The land has since healed.

But many don't forget.

 

Of the Girl and her Wyrm,

the star-crossed lovers never meant to be.

And how through love and song

she saved all the eye could ever see."

Mighty verus Meek. I've learned time and again to not underestimate those of small build; their characters are so often bigger than most.

*Love Gets Me All The Time*

 September.8.2000

 Trisha Barrek Hopkins

 

Love gets me all the time

It never fails

No this isn't a line

To make you believe me I'll walk on nails

 

Once I decide I'm going to be alone

Be all by myself and cry

Once I decide I'm making my heart all stone 

Wishing that I could die

 

Love came around

And changes everything 

It pops up on me without a sound 

And God...Love he decides to bring 

 

It's charming

It's sweet

And so alarming

No one can beat

Love never seems to be harming 

 

Love just pops up one day 

Takes away the rain

Shocks me to the point 

I don't know what to say 

Love even takes away my throbbing pain

 

I don't know what I'm going to do 

But I'm very greatful

That love can be to me 

So true

And to treat me like I'm no fool

*All These Lies*

 October-19-1998

 Trisha Barrek Hopkins

 

All these lies

I'm getting sick of them

Sometimes I think I should say my good-byes

They are growing so fast like an infested stem

 

You tell me one thing

Then you tell me another

Your promises you never bring

It's amazing we're still together

 

I try to hold on

But you make me so mad

To the point I can"ttake it anymore

Letting go will only make me sad

These lies and promises are becoming a bore

 

I love you too much

But all these lies got to leave

Even though I'll miss your soft gentle touch

One day I'll be gone then you'll believe

That I got fed up with all these lies

It became too much

 

No more kissing

No more blue skies

You'll be missing

No more lies

Stop before it's to late

Stop before I lose all fate

*All These Tears*

All these lies 
I'm getting sick of them 
Sometimes I think I should say my good-byes 
They are growing so fast like an infested stem 

 

You tell me one thing 
Then you tell me another 
Your promises you never bring 
It's amazing we're still together 

 

I try to hold on 
But you make me so mad 
To the point I can't take it anymore 
Letting go will only make me sad 
These lies and promises are becoming a bore 

 

I love you too much 
But all these lies got to leave 
Even though I'll miss your soft gentle touch 
One day I'll be gone then you'll believe 
That i got fed up with all these lies 
It became too much 

 

no more kissing 
No more blue skies 
You'll be missing 
No more lies 
Stop now before it's too late 
Stop before I lose all fate

*The Day You Begin To Live*

 

October-2-2000 

Trisha M. Barrek  Hopkins

The day you begin to live 
Is the day you start to die 
Things you see aren't what you believe 
Even the first tear you cry 
Is already the thing of the past 
The hardest you try 
You cant make the day last 


The day you take your first breath 
Is the day you gasp for air 
Trying to figure out whats next 
The sound of angels is what you hear 

 

Before you know it you're old 
So treat this day as it was your last 
Because before you are told 
You'll be the thing of the past 
God put you through this test 
To see if you pass 
Soon enough you'll be putting your body to rest 
The heart beat you heard it'll be over real fast 

 

The devil will try to take your soul 
But to let you see the light 
God will make it his goal 
To keep it shining bright 

 

The day you begin to live 
Is the day you start to die 
So live your life like you want 

 

Because getting older will soon be by your side 
Soon enough you'll realize you'll see 
Your ghostly soul will start to haunt 
Here on this earth in person you'll no longer be

Looking Up

Folder: 
Prevailing

 

And I push the boundless limits

To reach the unreachable, within

Leaping amid countless thoughts

With time that forever bends.

The outline of voices fall deeply,

On wishing ears so eager.

No longer a sound quite perfect.

Tainted retentions, left meager.

Out of tune with the non-existing.

Out of range with the remaining.

The stars; directing my following feet

Endlessly looking up, but straining.

I swallow my deepest terrors

And let the light shelter skin.

Once more, voices like puzzles,

Will be whole again.

 

 

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Theres not a day I don't think of the people that are missing in my life. One day Dad, I'll see you again. You've got me always looking up.

Monsters In The Dark

Now listen to what I have to say

For the wicked hide in the shadows of this day

 

You know nothing of what is of me

You may know the color of my eyes

But not of what they are capable to see

 

Now here, I've warned this upon you

For not every smile is ever true

 

Everything is not set in stone

You may say there is an answer

When nothing is completely known

 

Close your eyes, please understand

That what you may rely on is a blood-thirsty hand

 

Unknown of what they truly are

Watch think before you turn and talk

Someone so close to you can be so far

 

So remember before you go on and say

"But why would anyone do this to me anyway?"

 

Human nature can be full of evil and greed

Unwatched, A monster born within the shadows, full only of self pleasure and need.

I Have an Unknown Friend

I have an unknown friend, who lives in the sky

Why I question him, I do not know why

I should not go to look for him, they say

But I know he'll want to look for me someday

I wonder, I ponder, even as I sleep

I dare not awake, for I have gone too deep

But again, the sun calls to another abrupt wake

Alone again, to find an answer for my sake

I take another step foward, for this I will fight

Forever wrapped in this question, how it echoes through the burning light








MOTIVATION

I may be under this small roof today
I don't care, I am on a translational wheel
I believe would propel me to a greater height
