A Light In The Fog
The long nights were dark and the short days seemed darker
The sun tries to rise but even the moon's glow is brighter
I'm just searching for something to give me a sense of hope
Even though I'm another typical fool who should just learn to let go
Eyes grow dim as time goes on
It's a sin to be this strong
I'm going through life and only seeing blurry faces
It's too harsh when all forms of trust are blind
I've walked this world and noticed nothing really changes
Every step seems futile and every dream is a sleeping lie
All souls cannot be shrouded
All hope cannot be abandoned
I needed a reason / To keep me breathing
So please pay heed to the pleas / I don't want the dim lights to leave
And then I caught a glance of you and instantly knew
That I gave up too easily, thinking you wouldn't have come for me
And because of you- my outlook had improved
And tears of joy could only drip helplessly

Wings Of Light
Upon me is the last dawn
Faded away has the last dusk
I leave behind all of the rights and wrongs
I don't deserve an afterlife that is also rough
Mesmerized in deep suspense
As I await the final arrival
My tears become so intense
These last moments of hope are vital
Allow me to break away
Accept the toll of my undying faith
I was careless as I fell
Mocking life itself
Every secret I held
Defined a broken side of myself
An inner slaughter I could not defend
A one-sided war that I could not fight against
My downfall is what I didn't want to prevent
I always lusted after the idea of my final descent
Because I knew that in the end I would ascend
All I can really do is live this divided life as best as I can
I realized that the only thing in perfection is being broken
And the only way to get rid of that is to wipe out my existence
Shine down and shine true
I will no longer be powerless
You don't know how long I've been waiting for you

Darling, you and I both know
in a better world I could be your Lethe
wrap around you, drown you
that ever tried to bring your fate down on you.
Still if I picked up the pieces
I'd hear their soft hum
the one shells moan for the sea
for even then there would be places in you
still not free.
Surely women must have learned by now
never to trust fruit.
A garden is a prison earned
and there is nothing satanic, nothing sacred
Yet when your body curls in on itself
seduced by not-seeds that need only thirst to root
you find your lips wet
and what might be blood or juice
becomes the same as sweat.
Your skin is singing
I swear, hymns to the colors
the way the world's ringing hurts your ears
the salt of the Dead Sea come alive in your tears
the smell only in the sky as the rain clears
the poppy-eyed bud people who spend years
walking around, faces turned toward the light
thrusting pomegranate crown
Light X Reader- Chapter 1"5 more criminals mysteriously die of heart attacks. What is causing this?" you read on the title of this morning's paper. You sigh and toss the paper on the counter, running a hand through your hair. You heard of the person known as "Kira" from many different websites and news reports who was said to be the cause of the criminals' deaths. You do wonder who he is but don't bother prying into it much. You look at the clock hanging in the kitchen where you were sitting and narrow your eyes slightly. The time was only 11:00 a.m. and you knew Matsuda was working. After your parents left for America to study, you stayed behind in Japan to finish school and were taken care of by their friend Matsuda. He was working on the Japanese task force in order to catch Kira. That left you alone in the small apartment most of the day and night when Matsuda would decide to sleep over at the police office. Deciding you were bored out of your mind, you stand up and grab your coat to go outside.Light X Reader- Chapter 12 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Ryuuzaki closed his eyes and let another soft moan out. Light smirked and licked his neck again, then kneeled down, pulling up Ryuuzaki's shirt more, licking his chest. "Ryuuzaki....you taste so sweet...." he said and looked up at him. Ryuuzaki looked back down at him, not saying a word. Then, before Ryuuzaki could blink, Light pulled off L's shirt and was leaning against his chest. These feelings are so strange.....I know Ryuuzaki as a friend...but...My heart says different....he thought. Ryuuzaki blushed lightly and looked up at him. Light smiled and kissed him on the lips deeply. The other quickly kissed back. Light's hand snuck down into Ryuuzaki's pants and started to stroke him through his boxers, as Ryuuzaki did before in the dorm room.
Ryuuzaki opened his eyes wide, moaning out Light's name in pleasure. Light smiled at his reaction. "I see you like this Ryuuzaki...." he said and stroked him harder. He stiffened some and clenched his hand

Where were you when our hearts divided?
You said we’d always be united!
You were my breath into my mouth
The name I use to shout
But in your eyes is blood
Your sins over-flood
I struggle just to breathe
My skin tears beneath your teeth
I am your everlasting victim
Your DNA runs throughout my system
My body is completely yours
But this is what I endure
You’re the enigma in my life
Continuing to thrust the knife
I am dying with apathy eyes
I’ve been filled with filthy lies
For I am your entity
Your incessant chemistry
Bound by the lies in your veins
My existence is trapped in chains
But to you…I am your light
I’m what makes your heart ignite
I’m the antidote to your innocence
I am your very synthesis
You’re in forever stagnation
And I’m your only salvation
Trapped by innocent, trapped by pain
Trapped by torture you can’t sustain
We are a unity, we are one
The only something you can’t outrun
I am you and you are me
Innate for al

"Be back before dark okay? And watch out for the flea." Shizuo puts his feet up on the coffee table as you nod and open the door.
"Will do bye!" You walk down the stairs from your 5th floor apartment and breathe in the Ikebukuro air as you pull out a list of errands and start walking to your first stop. You need to buy groceries and find a part time job to work for money. You and Shizuo aren't rich so paying bills becomes tough sometimes. It doesn't matter the job, you just want a well-paying one. As you walk to the convenience store, you spot a familiar van parked with four people hanging around it. You smile and run over to them excitedly.

adrift, spinning. It patiently tracks the breeze
on the edge of genesis, floating in motes
of static. On the surface, it seems at ease.
Light filters through oak leaves and coats
its thrall, the summer heat's slow weave
through the river's margins to the throat
of the sea. Small fish leap up to tease
the moon tonight. Simply, this white note
rotates its body like thread released
from reel, alters its position over nodes

"Matsuda? I can't believe he's capable of taking care of someone. He can't take care of himself half the time. And I see you're not supposed to know much on the Kira case huh. No worries, I don't know much either. It's confidential business. You said you were headed to the police station right?"
"Yep! But it'd be a short visit. I don't want to be a bother to anyone." The snow starts to come down heavier and you pull your coat collar up higher to keep warm.
"I'm sorry but nobody is there. I was just there to drop off some clean clothes for my father and he wasn't available."
You wonder why no one is at task force but shrug it off.

The mighty Rainbow of Light continued to unleash its purity across the land and remove any remaining Darkness that had corrupted Equestria and the rest of the world. Once all traces of evil recently spread by the Dark One had vanished, the Rainbow faded away.
Courageous and the Mane Six were returned to the ground where they rejoined the various creatures that were at a loss for words after what they had just witnessed.
Equestria was once again the beautiful paradise that existed for over a thousand years. The eyes of the many gazed all around…simply astonished by the warmth of the sun that shined down on this land they call home.
Silence was upon all the ponies, dragons, buffalo, and zebras; no pony knew what to say or how to react to finally seeing the Darkness disappear and the Light returning once more.
The silence was soon broken when one pony within the crowd screamed with excitement, “We did it! We saved Equestria!!! WHOOOOOOP!!!! Chee
Into the LightWhen I was a boyInto the Light2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I used to pray to dashboard lights--
They always brought me safely home.
As darkness would unfurl himself
along the horizon and, like a serpent,
swallow up the sky
regurgitating stars and the bile of moonlight,
I was saved by the messianic gleam
of artificial luminescence shining through.
I'd tuck myself into the leather seat,
press my cheek against the warm cold glass
and watch with hushed worship
as the soft orange glow emanated
from behind the dials, buttons and knobs
like a night-light promising
safety, warmth and immortality.
A brilliant shade of green would come,
resurrected from the blackness
of the radio's display,
either flashing digits or holding steady
on the last station
awake and broadcasting that night.
Often I would find myself embraced
by the gentle suspension,
by the beaming radiance of electric light
if I should become lost,
I could always find my way back home
by surrendering my earthly fate
to the hallowed trinity
of defroster, speedo
This Light, SpeechlessThis light, speechlessThis Light, Speechless6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and without a name,
is dismantling the day
quiet as a door left
unopened by the wind,
folding itself unhurried
into idle birds, this
origami light, unmaking
muscle and design,
is not for the hand
upon the world unwashed,
the stains of lunch
and a book unread
this light is taking up the dust,
and the best of the bed,
the chair and chest, giving
its indifference gradually to
whatever is dead on the sill
and the soft muttering of birch
leaves awaiting twilight.

Crawling in my forlorn appearance
I hide my soul behind these tattered wings
Tattered and broken as they are
Plucked of light, stained in tears and blood.
In quiet despair upon the cold earth
Smeared in dirt I crouch upon my weary knees
And clutched timidly between my fingers
Rests one last jewel of Hope.
A single unblemished plume plucked
From the silver light of dawn
A feathered ray of light from beyond
To illuminate the void that has me bound.
This precious barb of silk
Once lost as I was and forgotten
Blazes now to immerse me in radiant bliss
To wash away the pain, draw me from the abyss.
So now I fade away…
My tender flesh removed
My shattered wings released
My inner light unsheathed… escapes.

I, the sheltered child who started to tragically fall from your grace
Into the void of this sudden loneliness
Realizing I followed every single one of your steps
But yet, I failed to hold onto those uplifting moments
Now I feel as if maybe I had forced you to make every one of those promises
That which you still kept
So I don't want to sound dishonest, but out of us, you are the strongest
You make sure to protect
To you, everyone, and everything is dearest
None left to neglect
But with all of that, you take on those heavy burdens
And try your best
Calling out your name into the nothingness
Forgetting about the peace you bestowed upon me
I guess it's just too hard to be away from

A cool wind blew across the Banishlands, causing the gray mare atop the hill to shiver. Winter was retreating, but a deep gloom still flickered over the land. Dark storm clouds loomed high in the sky, and to the southeast, the Lorarem Mountains soared into infinity. The mare snorted, tossing her light gray mane. The rainy weather disturbed her. In a life before, the black clouds above her head would have meant more than a wet coat. But now, they were a simple sign that a moist night was closing in.
Letting out a deep sigh, Yalda arched her neck to glance at the black stallion that stood at the foot of the grassy hill. In the shadowy light, Razarrs coat shone like ebony obsidian, powerful muscles etched out in his fur. Letting out a high-pitched whinny, Yalda swished her tail, blue eyes flashing.
