in the surface of my empathy.
I tried fill it with a
logic that spoke nonsense to me
I had a vision, had a
purpose, felt like I had meaning
Girl, it's not you I miss.
I just miss the feeling,
(miss the feeling of your body).
Logic eroded 'neath
the downpour in the inner-city
We didn't see it coming,
the hurricane started so lightly,
but it won't wash away
the hurt or satisfy the yearning!
Our hands are clean,
so why is it I feel so dirty?
where has all the rain been falling?
I found an anchor in a phone-call from a friend.
I am no sort of liar... for the time, though, we'll pretend
to care about each other like we did when we were close.
I hear it helps with coping, keeps my spirits as high as my hopes.

What's important to you isn't necessarily for me
Back up from the screen and the drama it brings
To see there's more to life than just the material things
Drop the negativity and treat all others proper
Live positively and your life will prosper
Meditate for the answers that many have sought for
And you'll ascend to the full potential of what life has to offer
Respect individuality: politically or religiously
Diversity is the key to achieve community
You might not agree with race or sexuality
Yet treat others equally: just like how you'd like to be
The propaganda you create only propagates hate
Claiming heaven's gate only opens for your faith?
Don't feed me your lines cause I'm doing just fine
Knowing your grand design is billions of years behind mine
Some have to be right - others want to get along
Some have to fight - others want to belong
I wont judge what right or decide whats wrong
Id rather pass this light so you can *** m

For the Earth's sake, can't you see what's at stake?
Avoid the mistakes and choose to procreate
Your eyes are kept averted by the way they got you herded
By the loopholes they inserted into the ways our laws are worded
Which get more contorted as the rich get more rewarded
But do you read what's recorded? No! it's easier to ignore it
The time has come for the resurgence of a new insurgence
The reemergence of what's really important and urgent
We've got to strive to break away from the hive
Society thrives: yet you don't feel alive
Mankind has the resolve to solve how the world revolves
Yet some won't get involved to find from where we've evolved
It's hard to conceive with the mixed signals we receive
It's no wonder you concede when we all should secede
Too ignorant to vote, too distracted to revolt
How can we have hope when they can't reach for the remote?

maybe one night i can forget that i am afraid of closing

subjugated, made to think life has only one objective:
to live and to obey, so when the time is nigh, someday
we might be found worthy by a standard someone else created.
I remember thinking then "maybe God is dead,
or perhaps he's not as real as everyone seems to pretend,"
which led me to the thought, everything that I was ever taught,
all the do's and the do-not's, are a crumbling foundation.
(and I thought)
What if everything we know is wrong?
What if all these teachings
had us baited
I never sold my soul,
I never sold my thoughts.
I forged myself a new direction
'bove the influence
if I could live once more, be that boy i was before, oh
I'd repeat that satisfaction, and throw my faith away again.
But I would love a life free of shame and careful conduct,
free of misappropriation of my guilty conscience.
And I would love to say that all of us are free to listen,
to live and love without contrition

The pitter patting of feet or fingers on the floor
No wait, it comes from my closet door.
Hark, I hear soft gasping, loud rasping,
A sudden grasping of my closet door,
Thrown open in a sudden burst, come forth
Monster; yelling, shrieking, spewing from
My closet door. Don't scream, don't shout,
The monster's out, what fate awaits my night.
Dear Tommy, so sorry for the freight,
I did not mean to wake you on this night,
But rather to introduce myself, I'm Bernie
From the closet, I go bump when all is quiet.
My eyes glow yellow, my stomach bellows,
But do not fear me, just my breath, it smells.
You're father says do not fear the night,
I agree, you see, I am me, just me,
A humble monster in the closet,
Your friend, your buddy, just don't tell
Or I won't come out, and then we shall see
What really goes BUMP in the night!
Do you mind unplugging the night-light?

Redefining the Giantess ScaleAmazon: 2.1 m ~ 3.7 m (7 ft ~ 12 ft)Redefining the Giantess Scale5 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
This class of giantess has actually been recorded in reality; whilst modern day humans rarely reach above seven feet, skeletons from ancient times have been found up to twelve feet in length. Thus, I do not truly consider characters of this height to truly be giantesses.
Giantess: 3.7 m ~ 1 Dm (12 ft ~ 32.8 ft)
This would be the size of a small house, anywhere from one to three stories tall.
Decagiantess: 1 Dm ~ 1 Hm (32.8 ft ~ 328 ft)
This category includes the famous "50 foot woman"; this woman would be the size of larger buildings, but not skyscrapers. A moving object of this size would definitely catch the attention of global satellite systems.
Hectogiantess: 1 Hm ~ 1 Km (328 ft ~ 3280 ft)
This category is when a giantess begins to draw attention from a distance; ranging from the size of small skyscrapers to small mountains, she would be visable from a good ways away.

No one knew exactly what we were facing, they wore armor and hid their faces underneath breathing masks. It was only after killing them that we saw them face to face.
- From the documentary: The Battle for Earth, circa 2060
The Sogran, also known to humans as Marauders are a race of avian creatures from the planet Toltra in the Zsyker System. They were one of the first races to encounter mankind and conversely the first alien race encountered by the whole of mankind.
Typically a malicious race in search of planets to colonize in order to expand their interplanetary Empire, the Sogran are known to flout intergalactic law in order to achieve their aims. They have very few, if any true allies in the galaxy because of their hostile attitude toward most races, although they do have a mutual relationship with the Sikar.

But it's too late

Closing up to others
My silence forever kept
Catch me before I fall

My horrors now revealed
You're gone forever
And I'm standing here alone
Lost and foresaken
Catch me before I fall
But it's too late
My visions now hazed
Coldness seeping in
Freezing my internal organs
Lost in time and space
Frozen expressions of sadness
No longer do I exist
Catch me before I fall
But it's too late
For I have already fallen
Hit so hard I died in an instant

He'll carve her name into his heart.

she could only reply "me too..." before she began to cry.

Não há limites para o amor.
É isso o que espera de mim?
Amor infinito e incondicional?
Desista agora e não se machuque

Não tenho tanto para lhe dar
Meu amor é limitado
Não o esbanjo assim
Meu amor é negação
Sem um nós
Restam apenas eu e você
É isso que lhe dou
Algo que tem valor
Meu amar não é um oceano
É uma gota no deserto
Ele é fraco
Ele é parco
Precisa ser cuidado
Não tenho ânsia de amar
E se amo é por merecer
Na medida em que o cria
Não vá tão longe
Se cruzar nossas fronteiras
Não olharei para trás
Se você se vai

Love is the meaning of Life.
Love is what we live for.
Love inspires us.
Love drives us.
Love is what made us who we are.
It's the Love of Family.

That Love triumphs above everything.
It's when you're together with the one you Love,
and everything else fades away,
and all that's left of you is your Love,
and the one you Love.
It's when you know you can do no wrong,
Because when you've made a mistake,
you know that she'll be there to support you,
and make you feel better when you're down.
It's when you're angry at her,
but you still want to talk to her.

Love is like a final exam.

But it feels good to try.
Love is like your favorite ice cream flavors.

Love is like the rain.
Sometimes it's cold
Sometimes it just won't stop
And sometimes you just want to dance in it.
Love is like me.

Pequenas verdades e mentiras de mim
Imagens gravadas em olhos alheios
Impressões causadas sem saber
Eu, análogo ao paradoxo
Não sei das coisas minhas
Contraditório como tudo
Sigo sendo filho do jogado
Outros virão, dirão e contarão
Coisas que sou eu não sendo mais
Não posso dizer quem sou eu
De meus reflexos multifacetados
Como numa brincadeira macabra
Preso em uma casa dos espelhos
De um sinistro parque de diversões
Eu me perdi de mim mesmo
Em meio a tantos olhares distorcidos
Que me espreitam atrás de imagens que não vejo
De minhas figuras disformes e hediondas
Sinto-me acuado e despido
Sou o que eles pensam de mim
E o que minhas figuras refletidas lhes dizem
Não sou eu, contudo, um simples somatório
Sou também subtração, divisão e multiplicação de idéias
Sou a superposição de todas as imagens
Que não se completam e se con
