They are white-like-the-sands
and they move with the flash
of the seagull's strong wing—
Why laugh your eyes?
They are green-like-the-skies
and they ask me to run
and they beg me to sing—
like the waves
on the shore in the breeze...
like the fish
as they leap through the seas...
They shimmer and glimmer,
they're stars floating free
on the waves—
So quick and a-quiver
between them so sleek
and so brave—
Will you swim with them with me?
In the green and sparkling sea,
swim with me...

Inner LightThe battle of loveInner Light1 hour ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Is an endless war
A severe addiction
Left me wanting more
I sought a queen
To kiss her every step
Yet through every façade
I nearly fell to death
Given all my hope
In a simple vanity
In this thing called love
I found only insanity
Causing me to fall
For love all alone
Leaving me fiery hatred
Burning through every bone
One day I awoke
To the dharma inside
To truth within
And the inner light
I found the love I sought
Buried deep inside my heart
A divine radiant light
That needed a simple spark
A candle in the dark
To destroy the pain
Burning with self love
Potential and gain
I simply let go
And chains forever broken
The answers I now seek
Lie inside left unspoken
Yet hatred still resides
A new war has begun
I fear no defeat
No victory is yet one
For in life's battle
A spiritual warrior was born
As The inner light burns fierce
My will shall not be torn.

Minutes later, the three gazed out towards the wall of webs from a distance. Silently, Seppuku raised a controlled and turned it on. Chiya covered her ears and dipped her head down quickly. At the simple press of a button, the entire area had been lit up. Two mini mushroom clouds quickly rose over the bunker, the walls of spider webs had immediately been burned away into nothing more than ash.
The three watched as pieces of the bunker went flying into the air. The entire area had been lit up, but technically, this wasn’t an act of terrorism on the account that this was uncolonized land. The three remained still for several more moments, from where they were standing, the bunker appeared completely demolished. One thing was for certain, Jody would have someone check out this location, but they would find nothing but ash and debris.
“I’m not going to miss those spiders…” said Chiya.
“They’re called tarantulas, Chiya,” said Seppuku.

The following day, Chiya had bid farewell to her mother on a happy note. She now had the sexual education she needed to safely get intimate with her lover, however, she no longer had a strong lust for this activity. If one day she found a good moment to do this with Earl, she would go ahead and do it. For now, she was simply excited to get to Devil’s Forest and begin the next step of their journey. What was most surprising, was that Earl was completely onboard for once. But between Chiya’s desire for adventure, and Earl’s desire to take down Black Shadow and live a fulfilling life with Chiya, neither of the two were as excited as Seppuku. The ultimate revenge was slowly coming upon Black Shadow, as Seppuku would often proclaim.
Right on schedule, the ship of Chiya Flower came descending through the dense fog towards the leveled starport of Mysteria. Chiya’s hair was blown back as she stood tall, several starport officers gazed up at the ship as

Really, Leo seemed to be a nice kid. I’d already even forgiven him for destroying my tea and scaring away my flatmate. As we approached a certain cabin, a strange one, with black walls and braziers with green flames, he backed up, took a breath, and knocked the door.
“Yo, Hazel? You in there?” Silence. Then we heard a cracking sound and hurried footsteps. There was shuffling at the door, before a thin girl with a mop of cinnamon curls opened the door. She stepped out with a smile. I tried to take a quick peek inside, but all I saw was the edge of an obsidian altar before she closed the door behind her.
“Hello, Leo! Who is this?” She had a warmth to her words, like she was really close to him, but not exactly dating. It jarred loose a memory of herself, speaking that way to some other boy, but that was in another time. Not now, but somewhere else, somewhen else.

The adventuress had been to countless caves, dungeons, and evil lairs. She has probably seen the most intimidating castles and caverns of anyone in the land. But nothing could prepare her for where she was now.
Being in the Nightosphere was unlike anything she had ever seen. It was horrifying, mentally disarming, and it probably would have fazed any normal teenage girl that found herself in its shadowy pits.
Fionna was no normal teenage girl.
She had pulled together all the effort in her entire body and— with Cake by her side—braved the Nightosphere like a true hero. She made it all this way to be presented with her biggest challenge in the halls of Marshall’s mother.

and it sends butterflies through my stomach.
I hear your voice
and I can't stop smiling.
Your touch alone
sends electricity through my body.
I used to wonder who I would fall in love with
and who I would marry.
And then I met you.
I realized that you were the one for me.
I was foolish for letting you go
way back when.
But now that I have you back,
i'm happier than I've ever been.
To lose you
would mean losing a piece of myself.
The one who has the key
to my heart
is none other than you.
The one who can make me whole,
when there is only a part of me left,
My life without you
would be worthless.
My time spent on earth would be for nothing.
My fear is that one day,
you will start to love another
and forget about me.
I fear that you will walk away.
Prove my fears wrong.
Show me that you will never walk away
without me by your side.
What I am trying to say
is that I love you.
I always have.
And I always will.

"But we already went over it like several times." The brunette replied as he crossed his arms over his chest. "I'm sure it's drilled into your head by now unless you're thickheaded or extremely forgetful."
I snorted at what he said and glared at him. "I'm none of those, okay?" I grumbled out. "I'm just really worried about losing."
"Stop worrying." Green stated as he threw the notebook to me, which I caught. "If you're that worried, you'll end up screwing everything up."

I believe sadness has it's gravity
For I can feel it's subtle tug
Like the tide from the moon
Rising and falling to the night
Yet I can't help but
Leap towards the light like a moth
Incinerated into snowflake ashes
Drifting to the whims of the breeze
Sadness, like a bitter-sweet lullaby
Weighs my heart down like lead
And softly exhales the sighs
Released like ravens into the clouded sky
So gently I orbit around my sorrow
Like clockwork in the pace of planets
Where my calls just echo silently
In the depths of soothing darkness.
Becoming HimI’d recently picked up a book in the library about space travel; the author finished the last page by saying that nothing we thought we knew was finite, and exploring the universe was like walking through fog leaving a string trail behind us. As I closed that book and put it away, I logged that logic away not because it was true about space, but because it was true of flesh and blood. True about me.Becoming Him2 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
People walk in the dark for years, like me. One day, they break down somewhere and think up terrible criticisms and anticlimactic endings for themselves. Some follow through. A select few suddenly feel the string in their hand, and they discover that if they tug on it, someone waiting at the end will reel them back in across the vacuum of space to a world they understand.

They died quite quick
Their blood flowed thick
Their despicable ways mad me sick

Batman Beyond gift drabble - BondThe last echoing notes of the old pipe organ had long since faded into silence, and weak shafts of moonlight shone dusty through the aging windows upon the cold floor. A lone figure sat before the alter upon his knees, his head bowed low in prayer as his gnarled, trembling hands gripped either a tarnished rosary or the folds of his opposite sleeve. Wind whistled and howled in soft snatches where the roof had been badly patched, and tugged at the long ponytail of hair upon the priest's head.Batman Beyond gift drabble - Bond2 hours ago in General Fiction More Like This

I could go out under the moon
And find kind of this kind of revelry
In bars and neon lights
But you're the only one
Who knows how to get in my mind
Give me the love
That I need
