The Voice of the Silenced Speak to me, O Muse of the Forest!The Voice of the Silenced by belleotricks
Let me hear the voice of the one we humans call” Nature”. Too long it has been drowned, strangled, raped, abused, and silenced; let it speak.
O Spirit of Earth, O Mhaithar an Nadur, embody me, and through me, share with the world of men the thoughts you have been harboring. My body and pen are at your command. I surrender myself wholly to you.

I am earth. I am root and rock. I am wind and wave. I am that which pulls and pushes and ignites the sky with fire. I am the first born of this world, and alone, I rule over all of it as sole monarch. I am the keeper of peace, chaos and death. I am a great spectacle to behold. I have no name for myself, but Men, the most troublesome being out of all that have walked upon this planet, call me Nature.
A Plea to Peter PanPeter Pan, have you forsaken me?A Plea to Peter Pan by belleotricks
Won't you come to my window?
Please rescue me, Peter
I know things you can't imagine
I've seen things no child should see
No arrows made the wounds I carry
The pain has become too great
The only place I could ever be free
Is beside you in Neverland
In Neverland there are no broken hearts
Neither any broken dreams
It's where a child is free to wonder
And not know what makes the sun dance
Or the wind blow and the stars shine
But I know all these thing, Peter
I don't remember what I knew as a child
Who is left to teach me to imagine?
I have done things, Peter, that I am ashamed of
Nightmares replaced my pirate ship dreams
Men have claimed me like land
And made me their own in every way
At least in Neverland I could be my own mistress
Now I carry the seed of another
And the nightmares become reality
Reality; do you know what that means, Peter?
Men live only to worry, here in Reality
They do not see the sun, nor colors that shine
There is so much to fret ove
Eleanor and I The other one, the one called Eleanor, is the one things happen to.Eleanor and I by belleotricks
She longs to be a “St. Matthew,” but she simply comes across as awkward. When greeting friends on the street she only knows how to sneak in a flash of a smile before she marches onward. She never knows exactly what to say, but when she thinks of it, it’s too late.
Her most valuable possession is her mind, which is a child’s piggy bank, her pennies are tarnished witticisms and half-remembered stories.
She doesn’t live in the material world but in her thoughts, so sometimes she forgets that she is not a goddess. Poor child.
She wants to be a “Sunny Girlfriend,” but so far has only achieved the title of “moonchild” who plays in the folds of the milky pre-dawn light. What a strange bird. So few understand her.
The only part of myself that I see in her is her musical soul. If you press yo
GraduationLet's see, how did this thing begin...?Graduation by belleotricks
So this is the end?
Is this how we conclude
This journey, dressed in white,
The sky overhead like a bright ocean
Where the "Great Porpoise in the Sky" waits for us,
And laughs while we cry.
I feel as light as the sunlight that fills the air
So brilliant, pure and clean.
Never have I been so free,
For this is as death.
Someone releases doves into the air,
They dance as they disappear.
They are our souls,
Winged and feathered.
With no wings and no wind
My comrades fly up with them
Higher and higher, for it is our birthright;
We have accomplished what we set out to do,
And can't stay here anymore.
We watch them become white pin pricks
On a blue dome.
I stand beside you, blinking away the tears.
If I were to speak, it would be of things long past.
I linger with you as long as I can,
But I must go.
I don't know what awaits me behind the sun, beyond the sky.
But my future is up there... somewhere.
You ask if I am afraid...
I look at you and smile,
My name is Eleanor (I'm on the right). My main realm of "art" is writing, where I spin tales in a variety of styles: short stories, vignettes, fan fiction, etc. I've also been known to dapple in photography, just as a light hobby.
