hiding within a cage
of leaves and twigs
why do you not rise?
One who hangs so near to the sky
has no right to neglect it
to return to the ground
and crawl amongst the worms beneath
like those you chose to rise above
like those who can only aspire
to be so near to the sky as you.
Child of feather and beauty
Hanging between wonder and despair
to do not hear the sound
of your wings' sadness
do you not hear how they weep?
How they beg for a return
for a chance
to bask amongst the clouds
for which they were meant to see.
Children of wonder and sunlight
will rise above your chains
of fear and hoplesness?
Rise and fly
above me , above the Earth
above all of us
and let us watch
from the shadows of your wings.
will you fly for yourself,

“Levi, we’ve received some new information.”
The renowned assassin waited obediently for his orders that were to come. After all, an assassin was nothing more than a tool, and no one wanted a tool that talked freely. If he overstepped his boundaries he was certain another of his kind would be sent to wipe him out – or several, if they were smart.
He looked toward the shadowed figure folding his arms over the desk. “There’s a woman currently hiding out in Japan. [First] [Last] her name is. We’ve gotten word that she’s… got her hands on some government level intelligence.” He interlaced his meaty fingers together and leaned into them. “I need you to take her out, remove the information wherever she’s stored it.”
Levi stared blankly at the pudgy man before him. “How do you know she’s got information?”
“Ah, she told us. Directly. She thought she was being smart, but we managed to track her

as I bathe
all that is
in silvery light,
I lure the tide
to lap the shore.
and the moon
calls out to me
to caress the sand
in a watery blanket.
so I filter through,
washing every golden bead clean;
sand resting soundly
in my crevices.
I shimmer upon slumbering forms
far below, on the firmament.
I conduct my nighttime symphony
in perfect harmony,
the wolves wail,
the cicadas chirrup,
the owls cry out
and ravens rove.
and I add my own notes
to the sound of Mother nature's tunes.
crashing down wave after wave;
the bass of the impact
echoes through the shoreline
as I leave records of the wind.
sailors and marine creatures alike,
understand the jagged beauty
of my blustering anthem.
only the foggy blanket
can dampen my spirit,
and immerse my song
in the suffocating depths.
I've never struggled so much
to be heard above the dissonance.
my frost smoke layers
are becoming too much for her.

You sat on the grassy field beneath, your face turned ahead but your eyes not really looking at anything in particular. You felt the presence of a man beside you – the same man you had given your heart to.
Levi – it was a beautiful name. You loved how it sounded, whether it rolled off your tongue or his. It was simple, not a tongue twister like many other names you’d heard, no. Levi was short and sweet – just like the man who the name belonged to, you assumed.
You smiled a little to yourself. Knowing he was there made you feel safe, even a little flustered. But there had been something you always wanted to know about him – something you’d never figured out, something that had been hounding your mind for years.
He spoke up; breaking the silent air between you two. His voice filled your ears. “Hey, [First], are you feeling okay? You’re looking a little flushed.”
Your smile grew wider. You loved how protective he was of you. He w

A soft knocking interrupted the comfortable silence that settled in Levi's room. The man looked up from from the boring paperwork he had been holding off for quite a while, and stared at the wood. "Name and reasoning." He said bluntly.
"It's me, Levi." A soft voice spoke out. Levi raised an eyebrow in confusion. It was definitely her. But she never sounded this shy or quiet. She was lively and outgoing, not as much as Hanji but enough to not get on the man's nerves.
"Come in." He said. The doorknob turned slowly as the girl stepped in. Her (h/c) hair gleamed in the candlelight that illuminated the room. Her (e/c) eyes shone with an unidentifiable emotion. She closed the door behind her and faced the expressionless man.
Her lips parted and she took in a breath as if to speak, but choked on her words and left her mouth agape. She shut her mouth and took a breath through her nose. "We're friends, right?"

Reasons Why I Dislike FeministsCurrently, the hashtag “Women Against Feminism” has been trending on social media, and it has created quite the on-line feminist backlash. Feminists have been left scratching their heads, wondering why women of all people would have a problem with feminism. Why would women be against people who claim to be “advocating social, political, legal, and economic rights for women equal to those of men”?Reasons Why I Dislike Feminists6 hours ago in Editorial More Like This
If I had a dollar for every feminist who rebutted the phrase “I don’t like feminism” with “what do you have against equal rights for women?”, my wealth would rival that of Steve Jobs!
No, feminists, we do not have a problem with women wanting equal rights to men. Our problem is not with what feminists claim to stand for. Our problem is not with their positions. Our problem is with their words and actions.
You see, feminists, I don’t judge people based upon what they claim to stand for. If that were the case, I would take the word of R

A/N: This story is a continuation of "All That Jazz" and "All That Jazz Too"
It was as peaceful as mornings get. Silence, and a warm bed. Levi had been away for some time now after waking up from a hellish nightmare. His past still plagued his mind, the last thing he wanted was to go back to his drugs and crimes in a time like now. He'd never go back, back to the way this were back then. In those days, Levi would have never of guessed he'd have this kind of life. He shifted his weight on the bed and turned to face his wife. It was kind of comical how he was able to predict this so early on. He knew there was something special about you though, and he sighed a happy sigh at the thought. You were sleeping peacefully, the essence of an angel. This beautiful woman had given him the dream life. He was now a married musician with three rambunctious, albeit sweet kids. Luckily the three little devils were resting, still worn out from listening t

Your body trembled; anxiety reaching high levels as you swallowed hard, inhaling deeply in a weak attempt to calm yourself. In the world you lived in-- the one you desperately wished to be normal, there was something that should have never existed.
Twenty-four people were chosen. It didn’t matter who they were-- they were tributes. They were young. They were innocent.
But it only lasted for so long.
You had always managed not to get chosen, thankfully, but every time the drawing happened, you were on the edge of insanity. This time had been no different.
Silence among the crowd, your blood ran cold at a familiar word.
Desperation brought out the worst in people. Everyone did whatever was necessary to survive, regardless of the consequences. You never wanted to become like that. You swore to never succumb to such actions.
But you had to.
Like everyone else, you had something-- someone to live for. And you certainly wouldn’t go without a fight.
At first, you wanted

The girl walked though the hallway, looking for Hanji, Levi and Erwin. And Eren.
Why? Just because she heared an explosion from Hanji's room.
'Just please don't kill anyone of them. Or Armin. Or Mikasa. Jean. Christa, Ymir, Reiner, THE WHOLE WORLD!'
Suddenly, she was running downstairs, her uniform was now a little sweaty because of her running. And then, she entered the room. There was three people, one mad woman and two men. One was tall and the other was tall.
"Okay, Hanji. Where's he?"
Hanji laughed a bit, before look at the (e/c) eyes of the girl with madness: "Who?"

And can never be forgotten,
Friendship is timeless,
And never rotten,
It takes more than hugs and kisses
To be a real friend,
the nature of friendship,
Requires a blend.
The road to a happy life,
May sometimes make us stumble.
But to have a friend to give us a hand,
Teaches us to be humble.
Good friends are hard to find,
Hard to lose,
And impossible to forget,
But when they fly away,
Your anger turns to regret
Sometimes in life, we need a special person
To listen while we talk.
A special person who will not discourage or judge,
But encourage us as we walk.
Friends are there
To help you along,
The journey through friendship,
Is always long.
There are big ships,
And there are small ships,
But the best ship of all,

“Have you ever thought of what you’ll do once the titans have been eradicated, Captain?”
The night wind carried her fruity voice to his ears, her words crystal clear despite the raging storm that was soon to target them too, and Levi took a sip from his tea. The stars were fallen in the black, up, up in the sky, casting shadows of lights on their forms, enough so the oil lamp wasn’t necessary. They were glinting, teasing, sparkling in the dark sea, where their queen was the Moon, dominating them with her guiding shine, the mermaid in this vast ocean of nothingness but pale water-lilies. The wind blew, caressing his face with hesitant fingers before disappearing in the trees. There was a pregnant silence, only the sound of the crickets broke the tense atmosphere, singing without a care in the world their tune and Levi sometimes wished his life would be that easy.
“I haven’t.” Was his curt reply, before bringing the cup back to his lips, sipping

I lit a cigarette - with a lighter - and remembered Annie Venter telling me that in the eighth grade as I lit matches behind the school. I had stared at her and lit the whole matchbook on fire, and then I had dropped it in the grass. She made me stomp it out.
I stood on the porch of my apartment, listening to the rain and staring out at the fog and the clouds and thinking that somewhere out there, Annie Venter was probably sleeping, not thinking about the time she told some stupid kid not to play with matches. I flicked the lighter on and off a few times to see if it would feel the same way the matches had all those years ago, but it didn't.
The smoke curled above me in the cold air, a visible metaphor for addiction as it hung off me. Everything in my life smelled like that anymore: like ashes.
I dropped the cigarette on the deck and I stared at the small red ember, letting it burn and smoke, letting it become
