He almost didn't believe what he had just heard. He creaked his head around to the unassuming officer at the entrance to the saloon.
"You're sure?" he asked from his perch at the bench beside the barkeep.
"Sure as can be, Sheriff," the officer rattled, his voice cracking with fear. "It's...it's him."
The Deputy at his side straightened the ten gallon hat on his metal head and doubled back.
"I'll be a Met's uncle," he groaned. "That devil's here? In our town?"
The Sheriff sighed and rose from his stool as one rises in a church. He grabbed his bright yellow hat and reflected for a moment, running his rusty red finger across the V-shaped b

Jovian storm-red eyes glanced around. Jupiter had been seeking Terra for some time. After all, it was the time of day he usually came around, seeking a mission from Terra to keep him on track. After all, he had a short attention span and tended to seek fights if he didn't have a mission. Either that or he'd retreat to his nest with some KFC.
He tromped around the ship until he heard one last snip, then an "aaaaah." Terra. He'd found Commander Terra! He could finally ask for a mission!
"There you a---AAAAAGGGHHHH!!!" Before Jupiter could say much more, he had spotted what seemed to be a golden, luxurious mass on the floor. He had to have it! Prime nesting material! He had to have it! "LORD TERRA! MAY I PERCHANCE PURLOIN THIS GOLDEN MAGICAL FLUFF ON THE FLOOR?!"
Saturn sputtered. "WHAT GOLDEN MASS?

It is half past twelve
And I'm tossing in bed
I think I hear you
But that is all in my head
This is the third night this week
I toss and wake to my screams
In my nightmares you live
When once you were part of my dreams
I grip my pillows tight
And cry out so many tears
But if I close my eyes again
The blackness returns me to my fears
In my dreams
I can see the pain
As death took you from me
I relive that dreadful hour
And this is what I see
There I am
Holding you in my arms
And giving you a tender kiss
When from behind
A monster with a knife
Stole my love and bliss
He stabbed you deep in the back
With a knife as dark as his eyes
And falling to your knees
My heart broke
And life lost all her ties
I try to comfort you
In my arms
Tell you everything will be okay
But that monster laughs
And kicks me in the face
Before running away
I crawl to crouch over your body
Holding you tight to my chest
You try to speak
But the blood trickles
Down your mouth

Yet I am so lost.
I can see,
But I'm in the dark.
I was hurt,
But the pain never came,
I was waiting,
For only a dream.
I am the voice,
In the back of your head,
I am the face,
With no tears shed.
I am the outcry,
Echoing throughout the sky,
Coming to no end it seems,
Looking only to redeem.
I am the lost,
But I am found,
I am the soul,
Waiting to drown.
Being held down,
Waiting to drown,
In the vise grip,
Of the one I love.,
Who apparently thought,
I wasn't enough.
I am the voice,
In the back of your head,
I am the face,
With no tears shed.
I am the outcry,
Echoing throughout the sky,
Coming to no end it seems,
Looking only to redeem.
Pour scoulding water on me,
No burns or wounds to see,
Expressionless I watch you pour,
If only you saw how bad I tore.
I am the one who wipes your tears,
While his are left unwept,
You tell him all your tales of life,
While inside his are kept.
He takes your scars,
Takes your pain,
Hold you close,
Whilst he needs the same.

It had taken a lot of preperations, and ranting, and chasing away other robots. Especially Crash Man; if he didn't chase away Crash Man, chances were that the other would destroy what he had been carefully planning for weeks. That would have probably resulted in him getting into a fight with the Second Gen robot, which would not have ended well. But Crash Man was out of the picture, and he had accomplished his goal. That was all that mattered.
Copy grinned, staring at the steel armor in front of him. He could use his Copy Ability to change his jumpsuit into a color that was appropriate - the tricky part had been obtaining the armor. He'd had to create it himself, using memories that were not his own, but he had eventually formed the steel into a Copy-sized version of Shadow Man's armor.
The kid put them on, grinning at the fact that it was a perfect fit. Of course, when he looked at the mirror, he realized that he was missing a rather vital part of his disguise.

Words whisper in and out of my ear
But without you here, without you next to me saying them
Chills run up and down my spine
But you're not there touching my bare skin
I can still taste you, your kiss still fresh upon my lips
How can this be?
Are you a ghost hiding behind me
Speaking quietly into my ear....
Your breathing is still felt on my neck
The smile is still placed on my face
Am I dreaming?
Or am I returning back where my fantasies lay hidden
You here, you standing next to me, talking to me
It drives me insane
My skin strives for you
Just for you to hold me close, so I can hear your heart beat
So I can hear you breath...
Slowly I fall, faster and faster
My thoughts only containing you
My dreams have only you to seek for
To see you, to kiss you....
Future fantasies lay in front of me
Still the feeling of going mad lies in the pit of my mind
But this feeling of love surrounds my body
And somehow my fears fade slowly away
Because your hand has reached out for mine
Calling me softly

Light hearted passion swept through the night
Fragile hearts on the verge of breaking
A cycle of destruction on repeat
A mess of a room, a mess of a life
I keep waiting, wondering when it will happen
In the end I know, these tears will follow me home
Dreams fell out of the blue
This mountain of cruel became our home
The sun could never shine
Gifted talents reform along the lines
Deep in the home far away this piano echoed
Miles and miles apart, you touched my soul
Couldn't have thought of something more
Couldn't have been anything but great
Wandering the streets at night
Your touch I swear I feel
Your voice I claim to hear

Your haunting images have flown through this door
I've seen death to close, for too long
Your dark mirrored walls,
are a reminder
Of the person I've become
Drifting through this life
Coursing down these stairs
If I had as much too say at all,
it would be because of you
Wouldn't dream of time spent wasting
Nor could I forget,
the things I've put myself through
Torn and wrapped inside out
They've been looking out the wrong window.
The shadows lay as a never ending blanket
Wrapping everything underneath
The blood shall never be seen,
the traces of her last glowing warmth
Stolen in the passion of the night
But for such a passion,

No-one left to talk to
Just sitting here in silence
Music is dead to me
This little world I made
Away from all that I hate
A world where pain doesn't hurt
but where it is the sweetest releasing bliss.
Here I can kill myself gently.
My friends have all gone
My enemies hide at every corner
My home has become a prison
All I want,
Is to fall gracefully.
I'll cut the ties to this body
My torturer of 16 years
I'll make my wrists a work of art
As my lungs explode underwater.
Theres four reasons to save my life.
Let's pretend I'm fine.
Keep these suicide dreams to myself.

Strong and water resistant
A tear rolls down my cheek
Glistening like a toilet
Recently bathed in the stain-fighting power of OxiClean

Not even a Zorbeez could soak up all my love for you

Like an over-accessorized freak needs a Bedazzler

My Love For YouDuring its infancy, my attraction to you was merely a revisited feeling which had been buried under the combined weight of two other simultaneous loves. Riddles with much mis(t)ery; stress and problematic confusion, I was blinded to your adoring gaze.My Love For You10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
However distracted that gaze may have been.
Though I was deeply in love, it was among the most stressful times of my life. But then as the sands of past months eroded away, my feelings for you resurfaced. I knew your past love was over, and that perhaps even my sudden singularity was a part of the reason.
With my curiosity strengthening the way that I felt about you, I began to explore the possibility of calling you my girlfriend.
The weeks past, and doubt began to grow within me. Perhaps it was the three years of life between us, or the fact that I was playing right into the much dispised 'rotation' theory that fed this doubt. In either case, my hesitations were born of w

You can see me broken on the floor,
I am broken to this mortal world.
I am broken to you,
So toss me out.
Toss me out like a ragged doll,
Worn and frayed at the edges.
So toss me out,
Leave me there in the ice-y rain.
But please understand,
I don't want to go,
Don't want to leave you behind.
Even though I'm broken to you,
I still wish to be with you.
Don't toss me out,
Just take me, sweetly
Into your arms again
Unbreak me, make me whole again.
I'm still just shards on the floor.
Just shards of my self,
Shattered upon the earth.
So please, just take me in your arms
Smother me in your warm embrace.
Take me, make me, unbreak me
And in your eyes,
So, softly you can tell me,
So, lovingly you can show me.
Through your eyes, what have I become?

Just my dreams, the hating words.
Growing concerns beyond a measure.
Just to be this close, no words to sing this song.
Breaking things I've never seen before.
Losing the control I've never had.
I don't mind if you never return.
I wouldn't mind, if you never look back.
But I will mind, if you say this was all my fault.
Just this corner, this empty space.
I am not the only one here.
Learning with an ease.
Bleeding through the hole left in my heart.
I'll scream and you can hate me later.
Once this is over, I know. You won't be here.
So I won't mind if you never return.
I won't mind, if you never look back.. to this.
But I will mind, if you say.. This was all my fault.
You see the path, written out every word for you.
Spelled out the errors in which were created.
Help cheat life, but now I'm running on a thin line.
I know I've crossed, I know I'm still broken.
But I can't be held responsible for all of this.
Just to think and just to be.
There will be sometime, just when I can't make i

As I sit here, wondering where you are
Do I dare to tear myself apart.
Sitting there on the other side
I sat there all night and cried
I waited for you to call
I began to crawl, but I soon started to fall
Falling and falling, deeper I'm going.
Deeper I'm falling in love with you
I never knew I had to pick between you two.
I felt so obligated, how could I choose?
You have no idea what kind of pressure I'm going through.
As life goes on, As do I.
Each night at look at those pretty eyes.
Wondering how someone like you was so perfect.
I feel like a tiny insect.
So many feelings running through my body
And at any instance, all of it can go away.
I enjoy talking to you, you make me feel superior.
I want to get to know you more.
Getting in touch with my inner-feelings, I felt so much more.
My last girlfriend lied, and how much I wanted to cry.
I tried and tried to get back with her, I never really could tell why.
Why she didn't want to.
Was there someone else?

Making your solitude disappear with the second my foot steps through your door
A curse I seem to be
Taking your light, to make it mine
Loving each second of living, while I'm actually dead
Black rich liquid slowly falls from my arms
All scars are revealed
All hatred is unleashed
While everyone will be looking
They won't see my dying corpse laying on the ground, near my grave
My touch freezes your skin
My face as white as snow, with some red liquid stained onto it
Seems to be the only image you see within your mind
My screams become your nightmares
My cries seem to dwell into your sorrows...
My skin is rigid with deep wounds that let the colors spill out of my system
As your hand crawls up my spine, you feel the deathly feeling that lay within me

A Brief History of the Minecraft UniverseIn the beginning, there was the End, and the End was everything. There was nothing in the world but a scarce few floating islands, each seperated by many leagues of empty space. There was but one form of life, and they called themselves the Endermen. They stood on average three metres tall and had jet black hides. They had disconcertingly long limbs which had no joints but instead curved gracefully. Though their bodies would appear strange to the later races, their minds were filled with curiosity and intrigue at the world around them. They explored their islands and found a mysterious substance suspending them in mid-air. This substance, dubbed "gravitite", became the basis of the Enderman civilisation.A Brief History of the Minecraft Universe3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
They crafted tools, picks and axes using its remarkable properties. The Endermen used this mineral to create great flying machines to allow them to cross the voids between the islands. Their species united, their sciences advanced to heights that no later civilisation would reach for m
