Poem - 'Lost'
God has put us in this world,
A once most perfect, peaceful place,
Now haunted with a thousand hates,
And only a shadow of His grace.
And in that shadow, a glimpse I saw,
Of one so beautiful, my breath she stole,
But handed back just hours away,
Not once returning to its whole.
A second love I found, in time,
A girl of beauty, and of awe,
But she too had a price to pay,
And led me one more step to fall,
I remained alone for quite some time,
I never thought I'd love again,
Until I met another dame,
A girl of beauty like a gem.
Although I never loved this girl,
Or had her love returned to me,
I knew her like a sister fair,
and shared with her what I could see.
She lead me to one fairer still,
A beauty from another world,
A beauty who remained untouched,
And how she stays, that wondrous girl.
I loved her once, and she loved me,
And oh the wonders that she spread
Into my life, but all good things
Must end at last, and so she fled,
And now I end with heart so close,
To feeling bitter once a
THIEVES character introduction
Mac placed the headphones over his ears, watching the feed on his laptop change from computer code to security footage. One guard? Easy. Cracking his knuckles, he gave a lean wink to the big guy sat in the sports car's driver seat beside him. Tank remained emotionless, as he raised a dark eyebrow. Mac returned to his monitors, grabbing the microphone and slotting it in place at the headphones.
'Redd? Can you hear me hot stuff?' An unimpressed voice returned.
'If your face were three feet away, I'd punch it.' she said. Mac smiled.
'I know you love me too, now get in there already!. There's only one guard.'
'Damn.' she said simply, 'I prefer it when there's two.'
Redd took a few steps to the gate of the museum, her wavy ginger hair bobbing at her shoulders. She was wearing a leather jacket and sunglasses, even though the moon shined down on her from another realm. Her low cut top was just enough to catch the guard attention, as the growling voice she had once emitted shifted tone.
