i am neither here
nor there - just a
forgotten fairytale
hidden deep within
a dangerous mind.

it's the fear,
somewhere in the
truth beneath the rose;
& all i need are
memories.

see who i am -
the deceiver of fools,
pale & frozen,
an ice queen.

but i will
stand my ground
in our solemn hour,
lost in a
demon's fate.
Another prompt, using song lyrics (or titles) of a favorite band. I used song titles of my favorite band Within Temptation, a Dutch symphonic metal/rock band. Their music is haunting and gorgeous and the lead singer, Sharon den Adel, is even more so.

All credit goes to Within Temptation for the amazing song titles. I merely put some together to create a poem. It helped to get my creativeness flowing and break through writer's block a bit, but still not enough. Oh well. I'm putting this as found poetry since I'm using song titles.

Songs used (I highly suggest you listen to them):

Deep Within
A Dangerous Mind
It's the Fear
Somewhere
The Truth Beneath the Rose
All I Need
Memories
See Who I Am
Deceiver of Fools
Pale
Frozen
Ice Queen
Stand My Ground
Our Solemn Hour
Lost
A Demon's Fate

Hahaha, I opened this up and before I ever read anything I was going to tell you it was a funny coincidence that the poem title was the name of a band you should listen to.

I guess you have.

Nice job with this. I didn't catch what you were doing until I was partway through.

I found them about two, three years ago? And I've loved them since. I really wish I could see them in concert.

I just love symphonic, ethereal music that has gorgeous and chilling lyrics.

WOOHOO

They do.  They really, really do.  The first song I heard that got me into the genre was Amaranth by Nightwish about 5 years ago, then I found WT through a Raven (Teen Titans) AMV with Stand My Ground, then I found Epica, Dawn Of Destiny, Kamelot, Delain, Sirenia, Xandria, Lacuna Coil, insert 10 other bands here, etc..
