The Old Tales

our voices mingle, overlapping
as the fire is crackling
the warmth pulsates up and down
and we look all around
as the tales we once heard come to life again
and we see them with new glowing light
nothing hides from sight
the fears and cares flee into the shadows
cold memory seeps into our heaving chests
and we remember

the old tales! those stories of lore
we said they were but grey truths
but tonight! oh tonight!
they shimmer like a strange scintillation of reality
and i cannot help but wonder
is it all real?


Happy Halloween, Hobbits! I hope you all have a great night.
Let me know in the comments what you dressed up as, what your favorite candy is, and whether you have any favorite scary books or movies!

P.S. A video for you. :)


  1. Do you still run a doll-blog?

    1. I'm taking a break until I get inspiration...and I'm pretty short on time, as you could probably tell by my rare posts on here.

  2. I dressed up as Katniss Everdeen. 😃😃

    1. Cool beans. ;)
      May the odds be ever in your favor!

  3. Help!!! I totally messed up my blog. I was trying to change the sidebar buttons to better match my new header, but I only wanted to change the image, not the link! Anyway, I ended up removing the buttons completely, and now I don't know what to do! Please help!

    1. Whoops! I'll take a look at is this weekend if you like.

    2. Thank you!! I was fiddling with the settings, and next thing I know, POOF! Buttons gone! He he... guess I should probably leave those alone from now on.

    3. That's happened to me before...only I reset the blog to Blogger's original settings and got rid of my entire design...


Thank you for leaving a comment-you're the best!
