Invasion!

by: EISLEY

The colorless words are burning our heels
As the bright lights of the city fade
Taking the chase to curb our fear
As the bloodless moon casts its face

Ooh, something’s not right
I can feel it inside
Something’s not right

You would take the breath from my throat
And you would take the cherished people that I hold

All in time you will be one of us painless, us blameless
Go to sleep, this wont hurt a bit
Shifting your shape to our shells

Ooh, something’s not right
I can feel it inside
Something’s not right

You would take the breath from my throat
And you would take the cherished people that I hold

And they will try to make us forget ourselves
One by one, one by one
Call me crazy but they are after us
One by one, one by one
You don’t have to know the truth
If you believe it
I believe it, too

Ooh, something’s not right
I can feel it inside
Something’s not right

You would take the breath from my throat
And you would take the cherished people that I hold

Halloween YA Story Excerpt

I haven’t had a real conversation with Barry since we were ten and I helped him search for his lost puppy, Galaga.  We never found him.  This tragedy must have rocked him hard, because he’s barely spoken to anyone since. And he never goes outside, except when in transit.  The Lamer Gamers all respect him.  It’s obvious from the slight nod of acknowledgement to his existence which occurs as he enters their restricted corner. Kayla can compliment him all she wants.  I still think Barry’s lame.  And now—kinda scary.

I Hate The Day

Of course the Captain sensed her pain.  Everyone on The New Remnant knew pain.  Pain followed them like a shadow.  Kayleen wondered if pain was something God intentioned.  Some people on the ship claimed pain was a compass, a tool, a device to teach you something.

But Kayleen just hurt.

The Captain, ever the philosopher, offered a thematic quote.

“’I hate the day, because it lendeth light      

       To see all things, but not my love to see. Edmund Spenser’”

“Humph,” Kayleen scoffed.  “I don’t love him.  I’m fine with not seeing him,” she added.

Hidden, Hidden

See, the way I feel
Is hidden, hidden
The way I feel

It’s time
If you’d reveal
What’s hidden, hidden
Is it time?

What have I missed? Make me a list
I can try, but you resist
Stir my soul, dig me a hole
I can’t move what you control

Still, I’m afraid to hear it
It’s hidden, hidden
I’m afraid to hear it

I feel fine, sevens and nines
You can offer, I’ll decline
Drop my guard, heavy and hard
I will treasure what you discard
Hit me in the head, send me to bed
I forgot what you just said
Make my day, send me away
Send me away, send me away

Yes, we ought to talk about it
What I need to say is
What I mean to say is
I don’t want to talk about it
Though I can see the future
I prefer to close my eyes

Show me a sign, boggle my mind
Water burns as I decide
Teardrop-stained, pleasure and pain
You are different, I’m the same

I fear
That it could destroy me
If you reveal
What’s hidden, hidden

The Red Knot Pre-release Quote

The guards, one dark and one light, both frowned slightly.  Their eyes, duets of black and blue, glimpsed Li with empathy.  Penuel spoke first.

“I’m sorry, Li.  But that was not the announcement. This is the announcement—“

In unison, the men declared,

“Do not be afraid.”

The Red Knot, the last book of the Days of the Guardian trilogy, will be released soon!
Begin the adventure with Vol. 1, The Red String!
