What is a firefly captured in a jar
When born to spread its light afar
Glass prison holding a tiny frame
This life extinguishes an inner flame
For his pleasures sake, life forsake
Starved without flight, Firefly dies

She always brought the sunshine on a rainy day, the girl who saw my chromatic world through her beautiful green Kaleidoscope eyes.
She walked across the dance floor in silver stilettos, Killer heels, swathed in sensuous silk, her dress a river of red flowing into my hungry arms.
To the tempo of the tango, we danced my blues away …
The Lord of the Manor kept his secrets,
locked within the dark recesses of his cheating black heart.
There were many mistresses, trysts and love affairs .
Yet, without shame he avowed to his Lady his undying devotion,
eternal fidelity and love for her and her alone.
As he looked deeply into the black mirrors that were her obsidian eyes,
he swore let death take him if he were ever untrue.
Morgana was versed in magickal arts.
They say the eyes are a window to the soul.
When she looked at him, she knew what to do,
she saw retribution reflected back at her in his empty, lying eyes…
And thus, his Lordship came to his final resting place,
not in the sumptuous marital chamber within the Manor House,
but in ignoble and unhallowed ground.
Buried under the weight of the cold cruel earth…
and his own mendacity.
She was a dangerous secret, kept hidden from the world.
How could he explain that when he looked into her Obsidian eyes he was afraid of what he saw looking back, reflections of the darkness in his own soul.
Who could understand, when he could not make sense of it himself, the deep feeling of love he had for the Nightwalker dwelling in the tangled forest of his mind?
Many women came and many women went, as he tried to forget her. But he knew she was just a whisper away and if he were to say her name, she come. Yet fear kept him silent for he knew only she could assuage the longing in the dark recesses of his lonely heart …

Kyle was a star Poker player He kept his cards close to his chest, never showing his hand, confident his next move would be undetected until he made it.
That was until he met Nell.
It wasn’t until the last hand, he realised that all along Nell held all the aces even though Poker was not her game.
Nell was used to taking King’s down, planning her moves many steps ahead.Too late, Kyle realised he needed to change his game.
