Nucking_Futs has a spectacular aura aboutNucking_Futs has a spectacular aura about
Battle

Battle
She lays on the cold, hard floor preparing for battle one last time. She looks at the Spiderman poster's, the trophies of year's gone by gathering stregnth as the cost of loss is much too high.

She hear's the dragon's scream as he swoops from the sky, feeling his hot breath down her neck. She looks to her trophy one last time; draws a breath, straightens her spine and lift's her sword to the sky, letting all hear her battle cry.

She parries and thrusts, twists and turns; but, to no avail as the dragon grabs her in his burning mouth. Flying high from the earth thru the cold, dark night. She can feel the air rush over her as the earth disappears far below.

She screams in agony as the dragon rips and tears her flesh from her body, crushing bones. Leaving her heart bloodied and raw. She falls to the earth no fight left, knowing on this night she has failed and lost the greatest treasure of all.

She hears the wind whistling in her ears as she falls faster and faster to the earth. Landing on the cold, hard floor she can hear the dragon's cruel, mocking laughter as he closes in for the kill.

She slowly closes her eyes for one last time and as her lungs begin to draw their last, she catches sight of her prize. Knowing there is no price too high she gathers her stregnth, draws steady breathe, pulls her bloodied and exposed body up to fight one more time.

As the dragon swoops down closer, feeling the heat of his breath she looks to her prize gathering her courage. She straighten's her spine, slowly turns to look the dragon in the eye and know's that tonight is not the last battle and tonight she will not fail.

For the price of defeit is much too high. The prize a son's hand in her's, a smile and laughter in her ears. NO tonight she will not fail.

I'm sorry. I laugh because I don't know how else to cope sometimes. I know exactly how you feel...

Don't be sorry it was thoughtful of you. ANd I would try and do the same for you. lol I don't know if it's part of my adhd but my emotions are jumbled; I cry when I'm ****** off, laugh hysterically when I'm scared or nervous lol it's just a mess.

lol Mary, I don't agree with you on that one; but, have found it helps for some off the wall reason. If I were a good writer I would be able to write anytime now just when I'm upset. But thanks

The best poems come out when there is much emotion behind it at the time. It's the beautiful way to vent.

Unfortunatly, the only time I seem focused is when I'm feeling an extreme emotion. Otherwise my mind is like a lil ball of fluff blowing in the wind.
