Sneaking in under your skin
Igniting your heart

Memoirs of an Elemental - Chapter 18
Chapter 18 – If Only He Knew
        Merrick let out a heavy sigh and looked me deep in the eyes.  “OK, I admit my heart skips a beat whenever you look at me.  But I’m also terrified because you and I are from different worlds.  Maybe it is love that I feel for you, but I can’t help but worry you don’t feel the same about me, that I’m just some....”
        I lunged forwards and wrapped my arms around him, bringing my lips against his, kissing him deeply.  He wanted to know how I felt, so I showed him.  I’d never kissed anyone before, so I didn’t really know what I’d feel, but it quickly turned from a curious act into something…more.  As his cool lips rubbed gently against mine, I felt an electric tickle that seemed to ignite my soul, turning it from a simple and steady flame, into a raging inferno

Memoirs of an Elemental - Chapter 17
Chapter 17 – Road Trip
        I woke up in a daze, with something warm and furry snuggled up in my arms.  Looking down, I waited for my eyes to adjust to the dark, just as the thing by my side suddenly moved.  I jerked away from it and saw what it was, a small orange fox, staring up at me with cat-like eyes.  Instantly recognising it as the one that killed the policeman, my heart began racing within my chest.  I considered jumping off the bed, but the Fox just looked up at me and yawned, before moving forwards and licking my hand.
        “Err, good fox?” I mused, hoping that it continued to stay friendly.
        “Her name is Nixie,” Lilith explained, as she flicked a light on by one of the crates. “And it seems she likes you.”

Lily finished her painting and stepped back.
"I'm home." She whispered, climbing through the canvas to where her mother waited.

Iorveth and Yrdenne, Chapter 1: Prologue
A pair of leaf green eyes wandered over the small clearing. Somewhere here must be the source of the whining, he thought. It was dusk, and the elf was out in the woods, hunting for game. Originally he was looking for a deer, but then he heard this whining and vague crying of an injured animal, promising easy prey. And he was hungry. He had followed the noise to the little clearing with the huge oak stump in the middle, and now he was standing there, half hidden by two small trees with an arrow on his string.
But the clearing was empty.
It was autumn, and he saw a track in the fallen leaves that vanished in the middle of the clearing, just next to the stump. There was a hole in the ground where the track stopped. The animal must have fallen into this hole, maybe broke a leg. He smirked, this was easier than expected. Soundlessly he started moving towards the hole. In spring a mother fox with her kits lived in a burrow next to this stump, from time to time he used to come by to watch the

In That Moment - Poem
Tears fall like raindrops from a dark, angry sky
Relentless, unstopping, coinciding with cries
Why do we hide our tears?
Is it pride?
Is it fear?
They say no one wants to suffer alone
And yet I keep choosing this road
In the hope that my weakness is not revealed
I question the purpose of this futile release
And my own heart's reasons for blinding me
I treat my emotions as though they were mindless foes
Instead of friends telling me things that my mind cannot know
So loud are the thoughts within my head
Shouting to ignore it, and to brave on instead
But all I ever do is listen to that voice
And so now the other will not permit me the choice
Deep inside of my chest is a small vibrant flame
That urges me to give in, and to let loose screams of pain
To dare to be vulnerable
To let my brokenness be seen!
But I always seek refuge behind masks, curtains, and screens
My emotions roar fiercely in their demand for solace
But my mind wont release me
Which speaks lies?
Which is honest?
"It will br

Meterious's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Literature

Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name's Mark, I pretty much spend all my time writing fiction stories (Fantasy and Sci-Fi) as well as creating whimsical Poems. I've been writing for over 8 years, and I'm currently in the final stages of editing a teen fiction fantasy novel, prior to seeking publication. If you've had a look around (which I encourage you to do so, if you haven't already), then you'll likely have noticed my weekly running story "Memoirs of an Elemental" (I know, I know...Its a bit of a mouthful). Anyway...every Thursday I deliver another chapter for everyone on here to read. It's a fantasy story with delightful bouts of action, romance and of course, elementals! (Honestly, what is not to love about that eh?) A word of advice though, read chapter 1 first! (Seriously, who jumps straight into chapter 3? No wonder you're confused about what's going on).

Also, in my spare time (Haha, spare time....that's a cute notion) I dabble with photography. Oh who am I kidding, I say I dabble but I bought a Cannon 500D a few years back, so I guess its more serious than mere dabbling (now that i'm reading this, dabble is a funny word when used consecutively) OK, back on track because I'm aware I'm now waffling. So photography, yes, so...I focus mainly on nature, landscapes and Macro photography. Although, I'd love to learn how to take portraits and personal photos of people.

I am up for working on commissions and collaborations. Perhaps you're an artist who is seeking someone to help write a story for your comic, or you need someone to create a poem. Whatever it is, give me a shout and I'm sure I can help you out (oh look, it rhymes!). I am also happy to do Critiques and offer writing and photography advice, so don't be shy!


Sorry if I'm a little quiet lately, I'm trying not to melt in this disgusting heat. I'm used to colder climes, that's for sure. Currently I'm sitting at my reception desk, with the air con on low. 😂
I'm stuck with a slight dilemma. Do I continue the next chapter from Merricks point of view, or do I switch back to Lilith? I'm somewhat torn, because on the one hand, I'm tempted to keep her motives secret till the next few chapters, but she also has a so much story and insight to offer. I also feel it would bring the reader closer to her as a character, as they start to understand why she does what she does. I'm at two minds, so perhaps you guys may be able to wiegh in your thoughts and help me decide.
I'm just in the middle of writing Chapter 17 and I have to admit, Lilith is far more mischievous than I first thought. I couldn't help but laugh as she tortures poor Merrick. As if he hasn't been through enough as it is, he now lands into her teasing clutches.

The more I write about her, the more I fall in love with her character.  She's a total delight to write about and a breath of fresh air.  It also makes total sense to me that Merrick would fall for her charming yet mysterious nature. He needs someone like her to pick him up and give him a sense of direction, a new life so to say.  

Sorry, just wanted to share my thoughts.happy bounce
