“What on earth is that?”
“It’s poetry, Haskins.”
“Yes sir, but what’s it doing in your hands?”
“Improving my mind. Listen, I wandered lonely as a cloud which floats o’er #veil...”
“Don’t you mean vale?”
“I said veil.”
“You said veil, it says vale.”
Where do tears go
Running from oblivion
Seep into the soul
A tender #veil forms
Shards of hope
Glisten in the light
Biding their time
Cloaked in certainty
Ready to moisten
An arid field of love
Marcela peeked through the red velvet curtains, checking her #veil one more time she readied herself to enter the stage.
The crowd applauded as she made her entrance, mesmerized they could only look on in awe.
She was dressed to kill, and she left the crowd murdered.
Marie stood in her boutique wedding shop, adjusting the bride-to-be’s #veil.
“Perfect! How much do I owe you?”
“This one’s on me,” said Marie .
She came every spring. Marie wondered when she’d accept her fiancé died in a crash 2 days before they married, 20 years ago. #vss365
Lift your #veil,
just a bit,
share the wonders you hold inside.
Let me see your real face,
just for a moment,
share the beauty of your words.
Please, you are safe here,
I took the #veil to hide from the world. Sister Angelica they call me. As I move from city to city, my sins follow me. Forgive me, I do not know what I do? No more lies: I think I shall tell the truth. Nobody thinks a little old nun is capable of evil.
They are wrong. #vss365
Through a #veil of mist I saw them strolling up the beach.
"Is this meant to stop us?"he laughed,and hacked at the fence with his axe. He made a narrow opening, and their army poured through.I grinned from my perch and watched them march into hell.
Until the fog arrived, the school trip had gone well. The milky #veil transformed the woods, the trees jutting out in warning.The kid, Jessie, was taken moments later.
She found us eventually, her skin as cold as a gutted catfish, her lips pulled back in hunger.
Hair in a #veil over one eye, she looked shy, ya know? Kinda sweet. Prob’ly scared of the bikers at the bar. I’m a good guy so I said, “Hey, sweetie, I’ll look after ya.”
Then she took the stage with the bikers.
“I’m Princess ManEater, and this is my band, Kiss My A$$!”
The day he'd been waiting for had finally arrived. He would marry the love of his life. He was ready, he was sure. She was the one.
As she walked up the aisle, his heart fluttered. After the 'I do's', he lifted her #veil.
"I love you baby," smirked her crazy twin.
Swaying seductively to the music, she danced the dance of the seven veils,
As each fell to the ground, his anticipation grew.
By the sixth #veil, she was naked.
He had lost count. But she had not, as she shed her skin and enveloped him within her true self.
She vanishes beneath the reflective #veil, like a cormorant, leaving only ripples behind
He sits at the water's edge, wondering when & where she will surface, a smile spreading beneath his eager eyes
She always returns, with a story in her beak to satisfy their hunger
"I'll have the #veil."
"The what, sir?"
Ed slams a fist down on the table.
"I WANT THE VEIL."
Jake jumps up and grasps the waitress's shoulder s, then starts shaking her.
"For all our sakes, just bring him the veal!"
Panting, he checks the GPS.
He reaches for his pouch, chooses the right sigil, makes the correct incantation.
The #veil is ripped. He steps through and sighs, relieved.
As he turns around, he sees she's already there.
Only. One. Tiny. Step. Behind.
"Besides, walking the #veil of torment is enough to strip me of my appetite."
The devils eyes narrowed.
"You don't strike me as having a weak stomach."
"I kill people, I don't torture them."
The devil grinned. "Oh Shae, do you really want to lie to me?"
Nothing will stop the truth. It will bend into a light deprived angle if necessary, to escape. A scribe may so befuddle the event that many people will pay an exorbitant price to hide behind a #veil and observe only seeking fiction and that my friend is good for business. #vss365
The Red Queen is struggling to sing Alice's deep notes from Billy Budd. "O beauty," she quavers, wrapping herself in the lace curtains as though they were a bridal #veil.
Meanwhile, bloodied but unbowed, Vixen the Viking drags herself upright and searches for her sword. #VSS365
Poet lives in shanty town
A #veil of shadows
Cast o'er ground
A cutler's polisher by day
By candle's light
She kneels in prayer
O lord my sin was to be born
An unwed mother
I polish knives
It's work starve
Is this my life, Lord
My path you carve
She sat in the old rocking chair, rain streaming down the window. Her #veil, unremoved for years, now a dirty brown. Her face aged, her heart still broken, she waits in silence for her prey. Each new tenant the only thing that now brings a smile to her cracked lips. #vss365
#haiku #vss365 #veil
“She’s too beautiful
For mens lust-filled eyes to see
Fit her with a veil”
No, I want freedom
To feel the wind on my face
Lift the veil from me
“Choose the veil, or death!”
Then I shall die, for in death
My spirit will soar!
Gabriel stepped out of his black mist portal and looked around the sleepy village. He knew that under this thin #veil, there was people here he could use. He would feed their distrust, turn them against themselves. What better way to spend a Sunday.

When I wear a scarf to keep my ears warm,people used to have these ridiculously strong negative reactions to my presumed religious #veil. Assumption was I wore it because of some foreign man.
I didn't.Even if I had,still wouldn't've been any of their business.
She pulled on her bindings as the hood was yanked off her head.
She blinked, her eyes adjusting to the naked bulb in a dirt-floored cabin.
“Sorry, to mess up your special day, honey, but your fiancé didn’t pay.”
“Boys, take her to my room;keep the #veil on.”#vss365 #satsplat
It wasn't nets at the windows, but a thick #veil of cobwebs. The sills were parched, the house starved of life. The flickering had died weeks ago, and I was curious.
Lifting the letterbox, I reeled at the stench, the dark hailstorm of flies and Mrs Ward's pink slipper.
Will we meet again
beyond the #veil,
a love lost
in fog and despair?
A mystery as old as time
hope remains eternal.
didn’t plan it
as granite #veil
turns broken shale
cleft of regret
a mere step
but truth defiant
takes time it takes
in the giant
steps she takes
All the ritual is done,
Everybody had fun,
It is time for us to start a journey,
I don't know how r u feeling,
But I m yearning 2 remove ur #veil ,
I waited for this opportunity like hell,
I don't want 2 waste time,
I want u to plant ur lip on mine,
#vss365 #AmWriting #poetry
The widow walked the church aisle to the open casket. She squeezed her husband’s hand & lifted her short black #veil to kiss him. She heard sniffling & sobs above the organ’s moans. Tears streaked her face. But, they’d soon be reunited. A car & new passports were waiting. #vss365
Arthur egressed from the Voyager & was amused to see small,neon-blue cats on the planet.
They seemed calm & gentle.
But unknown to Arthur & behind their #veil of innocence,were signals being sent to the clan of 40-foot cheetahs who called CatEye home.
The #veil hung in her closet, unworn. She'd felt such hope when she'd chosen it, admiring the delicate beading and the soft velvet trim. Until her love betrayed her. Surprisingly, she was more sorry about never getting to wear that veil than she was the loss of his love. #vss365
I don't know why it's called the #veil of the dark side, he thought. I can see clearly now. All the fog of confusion, the indecision, the self-doubt, they're all gone. Yoda was right about one thing, though. There will be suffering. It just won't be mine anymore. #vss365
I used to get so huge with the world, my new in-laws wanted a cage. 'To control her morphing,' they said. (They saw me turn into a church spire that week). He got a #veil instead. Dropped it over the world; worked nights. I morphed into dust and mice. They were content. #vss365
Evelyn always fondly anticipated her wedding day to be set and arranged. After waiting for years, her parents finally found her a groom. At the wedding, he lifted her #veil to reveal a rotted, maggot filled corpse underneath. An arranged marriage... In Hell.
"Shouldn't we go back to the truck?" He scanned the area. The mountains seemed to envelop them as they walked.
"We will never find the beast that way. Stop being chicken." She faced him just as the #veil dropped, and screamed. #vss365 #SatSplat #amwriting #WritingCommunity
The #veil fluttered but for a moment
When your saved breath slipped and at last was spent
And though my heart had died it heard no plea
That would pull the curtain aside for me
But life goes on and its wisdom imparts
There is reason for veils and deaf hearts
Lately, Jason has ghosted on a few plans. He’d much rather stay in or build new friendships. It hurts. He wishes he could wear the same #veil in front of his close friends as he does with strangers, but they know. The guilt is taxing to bear. The alternative is admission. #vss365
On rainy days, the King would pass behind the highest waterfall on the Claw and step through the mystic #veil which protected his mother's sleeping form. She aged not a second in her final rest. His sins and regrets flowed freely, for here he was forever Mina's child.
The thin #veil of life
Receding as life
Comes to a close
The Quantum Dream.
For a distant future, uncertain
I can hear
The Song of the Void.
I rejoice as I embrace
In the End, We are free.
The curendera had worn a thick black #veil over her face. What was this woman mourning? She was spit upon, called a bruja, and even a vile insult of chingada was cursed upon her. She kept gathering her herbs. The real evil was coming and she was the only hope!
I love the ancestral solitude
of any forest thing.
I want to lift the #veil of it
and crawl inside.
I want to look into its eyes
and see the guarded rings,
the secret things
sealed inside the pine.

He heard a scream returning to the cabin after gathering wood. When he entered she was crouched near the table holding a head. Approaching slowly she turned to him & said from under a #veil. "We have another one for the wall my love" he just smiled & she laughed.#vss365 #satsplat
#InstantTurnOns When I lift my bride's #veil to give her that first tender kiss as man and wife and she smiles and gives me a wink that blasts away the tension and reaffirms the great life choice I just made
George rubbed his eyes and the shimmering #veil surrounding the man was visible now. George tipped his hat and continued to the market. Merlin was an annoying man with his glamours hiding his true visage, those made George´s eyes sting. Vanity, thy name is Merlin. #vss365
She runs, trailing veils and silhouettes behind her. Loosing shadows, freed from binding cords and preconceptions, escaping fears and silver-threaded tears. She is a comet of a girl, feeling the past disintegrate behind her. #vss365 #veil

Nine in the evening. The girl waited for her daddy to arrive and unveil the towel she drew over her head and reveal... a toothless smile! 9:30. 10:00. 10:30... she waited... and waited...
The #veil of fog came on them quickly. The young men were unconcerned. Out early on the usual route Kyles of Bute to Greenock carrying cargo of nitrate of soda. But for four, this day would have but 8 hours, taken into the #void, rammed starboard by the Earl of Carlisle. #vss365
A heart discarded,
torn, old wedding #Veil .
No longer draw the breath
to beseech you,
Weakened in the knees
to meet you,
such a sordid tale,
but we both lost,
one final toss
upon the jagged shale.
It was a moment to embed in life.
As the wind blew, off went her #veil
He discovered a rare source of light in her eyes.
He couldn't just be himself.
As their body clasped each other
The journey to oness began.
It was a typical #SaturdayMorning. The early morning sun peeked through my window bathing me in its warmth. With each sip of life giving nectar, the #veil of night slowly lifted. "Today was going to be a good day," I thought. Just then, the phone rang. And, here we go... #vss365

Mist filtered off the lake in swaths, hiding the calm water. Dew clung to the green blades of grass, and birds called from the leaf burdened trees. Each morning, blooming flowers greeted the sun as it lifted nature's #veil on the world. All while I sipped tea on my deck. #vss365
