"What would you do to keep me?" His voice pressed into me, as gentle as his kisses. My reply came immediately, "Anything." It was the right thing to say and he smiled down at me. His eyes sparkling with love, desire, and remorse. He pressed another of his gentle kisses to my neck before pulling away, "I know." The words were faint, barely a murmur, but the finality echoed in my heart like thunder. There was nothing I could do to retrieve myself from his heart and there was nothing he would do to erase himself from mine. I watched him as he left the room, my heart dancing into the night with the man I'd given my soul to.
I remained where I was in bed for only a moment longer. There was no room in my mind for regret, I had a task to accomplish. I would make my revenge worth everything as the ability to exact it had just cost me all I had left. I felt my soul fade from the earth and I knew our deal had begun.

I feel I must warn you, my dear. I am fantasy. I will play to your every dream, reflect each desire. I will show you to the entrance of indulgence, but the moment you get too close, the moment you try to grasp hold of me, I will disappear. I’m like a fragile breath of fire, a flame extinguished by the slightest sigh of an approaching body. I will forever remain just out of reach, separated by that thin veil which holds illusions from joining the solid realm of reality. If you choose to ignore my warning, as so many have, I welcome you to find solace in my arms. You may experience the heaven of my embrace for as long as you can hold yourself at bay. However, the moment you begin to strive for more I will be ripped from your side. I am an impossible longing which will never cease. I warn you with such sincerity you will never push me away. You have been enchanted. Make the most of our time, bask in moonlight until your heart can no longer block its own rays. Then, I will fade.

Fondest Memories and Forgotten Promises
Do you remember our first promise?
It's etched in my mind no matter how hard I try to forget.
I made a decision when you told me to remember what I want,
You helped me move on when you kept me from forgetting.
I remember loving your easy manners and your eyes, so full of emotion.
You needed to forget the love you left behind and you needed me.
I only wanted your happiness so we smiled and laughed while the world stood still and we all strove to remember our hearts desires.
Our first promise to each other, "I promise I will never forget you."
The memories we leave behind are what keeps us timeless, eternally etched into life.
Poisonous and sweet. Innocently fatal. Made of pure sin. Looks are very deceiving. Beware of edge. Kisses - Yours Forever
Even as you killed me, you were so beautiful... Your eyes though they were now devoid of emotion still reminded me of the day we met. I had been trying to reach the container of ice cream on highest shelf at the market and you had gotten it for me. I had looked up into your face and your eyes had shined with amusement as you handed me my ice cream. Your lips now slightly pursed in concentration reminded me of the first time you kissed me. We had been walking through the park searching for my scarf I had dropped somewhere. We were laughing at something you said and the wind was freezing cold on our skin. You had leaned in and my eyes had fluttered shut and our lips had met and I could've sworn I felt the sparks of emotion dancing around as we relished in the other's presence. Your breath coming in slightly strained pants at the effort you're currently exerting reminded me of the first time we made love. You had been adamant that we make our first time special. You wanted to make love to me not just fuck. I remember your body hovering slightly above mine as you kissed my neck and told me how you thought I was beautiful. The explosion of emotion when we climaxed together and the feeling of complete ecstasy that came from giving everything you had to the one you love. Looking up at you now with your hands around my neck, I wonder when that love left you. I wonder if you still think I'm beautiful even as you're strangling me. I can't help but tell myself you still love me and with that desperate wish in mind I can die smiling because even killing me, you look so perfect.
The Adventures of Patty the Unlucky Leprechaun
The day started out like any other day, Patty took her pot of gold to her personal rainbow intending to spend the day enjoying the sun and the warm shine of her gold. Upon reaching her rainbow however, she found her spot had been taken by none other than her least favorite person, Tweex the Fortunate Leprechaun. Tweex was the luckiest leprechaun alive and Patty absolutely despised her. With her usual spot taken Patty trudged off to find another rainbow. As her name suggested Patty wasn't very lucky and had wandered very far before coming across an available rainbow in one of the shadier areas of the world far too close to humans than Patty would have liked. Patty reluctantly set her pot of gold down and reclined in the partial sun to enjoy the colors of the rainbow bouncing of her gold. Patty soon drifted off and awoke some time later to the sounds of heavy panting. She opened her eyes and jumped to her feet. Her pot of gold was missing and there was an enormous dog staring at her. Being a leprechaun Patty was only a few feet tall and that was about the same height as the dog in front of her. Patty look at the dog and the dog looked at Patty, then with a playful bark the dog bounded towards her and Patty took off running. She ran far and the dog ran after her. Patty ran past her usual rainbow where Tweex watched her with a slightly confused expression, past her favorite tree, and finally she could almost make out her home in the distance. She was only a few feet away from her door when she tripped and the dog caught up. If there was one thing Patty hated more than losing her gold it was being covered in dog spit and it simply made her day when the dog proceeded to slobber all over her. A few minutes and numerous curses later Patty made her way in her house thoroughly exhausted and in a decidedly unhappy state. ~The End.~
As the spirit sat and watched the girl on the other side of the mirror, he felt such sadness. Despite being dead for only a short time, it felt like an eternity. He watched his wife with loving eyes and watched as she smiled at the mirror. Her eyes had never looked so empty and her smile that he loved so much had turned into a silent lament. He wished he could hold her once more and take away her pain, to give her the escape of his heart. Then her smile turned genuine and he felt a sense of dread settle upon him. His eyes never left hers and she seemed to be staring back. Her mouth moved to form a silent word, "Soon" and then he screamed as only a spirit could as he watched a figure appear behind her. The bullet flew slowly to slowly then it had gone and she was falling forward but the smile that he loved so much never left her face.
Onward to a Great Adventure
I'm free, the world open to me.
The wind rushes by as I begin my adventure.
Time is meaningless as the skies fly by and the flowers embrace me.
The magic words set me free.
Nothing is restricted, I've past all those limits.
Voices echo around me and I know I'm home.
The lock is finally broken and the doors glide away from each other.
The warm air seems to bring promises of never ending pleasant dreams.
Happiness spreads through me and I can't wait to start.
She's smiling, her eyes shut, and her body cold as they lower her to the ground.
Tears Cry Too
Please don't wipe me away. Please don't ignore my presence. I love you, I need you, I bleed for you. I'm feeling something, see? I'm feeling something, save me! Would you abandon me if I were something more? Would you cry for me if I had nothing left? I'm showing you my soul. I need you to help me hold on to it before it all goes. When I've disappeared and everything is alright will you still remember me? The journey is sad but it's better than the end where everything is fine and nothing is real. Please don't hide me away. Let me fall and I'll find someone to save you.
