John paced nervously, trying his hardest to stay calm. He straightened the clean pressed black dress uniform. Despite the fact that neither Kelly or he were officers they had agreed that the tradition of getting married in uniform seemed to suit them better. John had been glad for it. He didn't think he'd be comfortable in anything other than his uniform. Even with familiar comfort of the dress uniform he couldn't seem to calm himself down at all. His nerves refusing to settle and thoughts raced through is head.
"You need to stop pacing like that before you wear a hole in the ground." Fred put a hand on John's shoulder, causing the Master Chief to stop. "Now let's go, or we'll be late and I don't want to see her kill you."
John smiled at his friend and they made their way through the base. "Thank you again for this. I was a bit afraid that you wouldn't want to be my best man. I am marrying the woman you dated, after all."
Fred grinned. "John, you're my best friend, and you make Kelly h

Takeo impaled an unsuspecting ape in the back with his Katana while he used his other hand to cover the apes mouth, to prevent the animal from screaming. Looking to his left he saw Zoidius swiftly disarm an ape with his tail blade before decapitating it, there was a look of satisfaction on his face as he stared at his headless corpse. Takeo didn't know if it was because of Zoidius's own bloodlust or that he really hated their guts. Either way this dragon has shown to him that he can hold his own if attacked, but still they were in enemy territory they had to weaken them without them suspecting.
Takeo knelt down and searched the bodies for anything that he deemed would be useful with Zoidius looking over him, he felt his hand touch something, something rough. Gripping it Takeo pulled out his hand and stared at what he found, it was a large crumbled up peice of paper. Takeo immediately took an interest in it while Zoidius merely snorted in distain.

After walking for a few minutes, Sarika stopped when they came out of the one cave to where the three cave tunnels met in the fork in the road. She smiled some as Talmon and Kyran stopped and turned around to look at her. Aldric stopped right beside her and set Travis on the ground and was still very nervous about being transformed into a dragoness. He looked at himself and checked to see if he was changing or not and was relieved that he wasn't. He smiled widely and stupidly as he got back up off the ground and looked at Sarika.Realms: 26 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

Sarika smiled widely at this as she lowered her head so that she was eye level with Travis.
"Oh, the transformation should begin soon Travis." she said.
Travis shook his head and laughed a bit, "There is no way, I'm changing! I don't even feel different at all!"

They would never touch a piano again, never breathe notes in patterns full enough of beauty that they would make Debussy bleed with envy, never resurface from the cold glass of the lake's mirror. He was a sorcerer of sound, a soul on fire with compassion and artistry -- he was dead. Caught in the undertow. Forever frozen in insufficient rescue of a boy smaller than himself. His heart had gone still, but was bigger than any beating above ground.
I heard him breathing Clair de Lune every afternoon as I walked home. He was invisible, as though he was hidden behind thick veils of water, quashing his reflection, but never his sound. I could hear how beautiful his fingers were as they pressed gently over ivory and ebony, solid bricks and thin like enamel, striking chord after chord of pure moonlight. As the leaves and

Up in the sky,
The birds fly,
The songbird sings in foreign ancient tongue,
The sky moving,
The clouds perk,
The bird flies away.
The sun calls our name,
We chase the light,
We cross the bridge that connects us,
Breaking the barrier that divided us.
We climb our favourite apple tree,
To kiss the sun,
The wind touching us,
Gentle wind singing,
The rain dousing us in love.
Our mind, body and soul are free,
We run towards freedom,
We can fly from here

Just because I cannot have what you are receiving, does not make me a lesser person. It only means that my life is taking different turns to yours. Everyone is different and makes different decisions. Just because my choices are different to yours does not mean that you have the right to look down on me.
You may think that my choices have made me bitter. Maybe they have. Time will tell if you are right.
But do not pity me my choices. They are MY choices and mine alone.

You see the things we take for granted
She at no time ever had it
So don't be offended when her smiles
Never quite reach her eyes
Or why her friends
Only exists in mirrors
And why windowpanes
Cry with her on rainy days
The world only pretended to care
And at twenty-one she saw all too clear
That the people it sustained
Should be the only species to be extinct

Knew nothing about kindness

I still blast music

because music helps the evil thoughts go away.

In my dreams, I've caught a glance at you.. and all I saw was a figure.. a beautiful figure that floats around.. almost as though you are but a hallucination..
Are you real..? .. are you really out there for me..? I'd love to hear you.. just hear your voice.. if you could convey a message to me somehow.. to give me hope.. to tell me you love me.. then.. it could make me so much stronger, like the warrior I was.. before I was broken down by temptation..

The secret life
of elm and oak
and thin white poplars -
on a winter night,
grazing the moon
like tapers in December.
I smell earth -
peat and cedar
and the indulgent bulge
crafting the air
like a smith
lost in his work.
Chestnuts bear an offering
and the yearning pall
of pine scents the sky
till it's thick with resin.
And they gather
with boughs and limbs
bent like priests at play,
roots tight as ancient drums
to ruminate on stories,
sinewed in fragrant bark
making merry where
the green bends back

But there are no stars to be seen in the crypt of St. Vitus Cathedral, only the fleeting shadows of long gone kings and saints, delving in the sacred grounds of the old pagan sanctuary that christian priests claimed as their own long time ago.
This is a place of power, vows and ancient knowledge.
And you should have known. You should have listened to Heinrich, the quiet master of old, occult lore. He knows that some powers are no folkloric tales, no propaganda tools to beguile the simple-minded. They are real. You, the young neo-pagan god of death, wearing the black-and-silver of the Thunder God, warrior rings on your fingers like the Norse warlords of old, you should have known that some ancient things are better left undisturbed. That their golden shine is just a trap for fools, eye-candy for those always eager to reach out for Fortune and Glory - two unfaithful mistresses that drag you into their arms but are only deciet and lies

Why do you always seem so sad? Your eyes are deep cerulean swirls of the sea, calm on the surface but fatal underneath with endless anfractuosities. Crestfallen rivers find their way down your cheeks and fall like raindrops on your cold hands.
If you were a song you would be the most broken and desolate winter nocturne in solo. You would be the beautiful heartbreaking tune of the violinist in the park, leaning down to close his old case full of coins.
You said you could play the piano for hours, from sunrise to sunset and into the quiescent night, but I know your slender fingers always remain the same temperature---below zero. And sometimes, your heartbeat is so silent and your eyes so icy blue I could almost see the snowflakes waltzing in them, an endless snowstorm. What happened to your passion?

Did it feel good?
Shattered into too many shards, too many to count.
Taking advantage of my weak little heart?
I can never become back into a whole.
Is that what you wanted?
Love means nothing now.
That is why I never cry to you.
Its nothing but an empty promise.
For fear you take advantage of me again.

But then you left
Left for 3 months
I couldn't let you go again...
Yet you returned once more
Is this a sign?
Or have you just been talking to my friends?
Whatever it is,
It's confusing me

Before I leave myself behind
I've almost pushed everything away from myself
And soon there will be no more reasons to beg for help
I'm slowly dissipating, and as this continues on there will be nothing else
I am just too tired
The ending is all I desire
I quiver as the waves of life crash against my hollow shell
Striking endlessly, and after living through this I don't even fear the depths of hell
Because being this strong means I've accomplished killing every emotion I've ever felt
This life of mine shall be undone
My era of hopelessness has begun
I could be so more much than this
I do have a purpose, yet I still resist
I yearn to have it all but I don't even wish to exist
So let the day of the rapture come
But leave me be, the lone soul who is numb
I contain my own apocalypse in my palms

You find her, at last, in the woods, deeper than she or anyone else ought to go. It's uncharted territory, still, dangerous even to people like her. You walk into the clearing and understand the thuck--thuck--thuck you've been hearing, because there she's standing with the splitting axe and a tree and tears running haphazardly down her face.
You're there in two sharp strides, putting your hands on the haft of the axe and shoving until she stumbles back a step, and you plant yourself between her and the hapless tree. You can feel the raw wound in its trunk against your back.
"What are you doing?" you ask her raggedly, because you've been searching a long time and you can't understand why she'd come out here, alone, with the wrong kind of axe and not a thing else.
"You don't understand," she says, wrenching the axe away from you, and you start back. It may be the wrong axe but it's heavy still, and you've seen that glint in an angry molig's eye before. Closer than you ever

And every feeling their gleam implies
How that laughter is trapping me down
And makes me envy for a reason unknown
Though it's simple, I mature, I grow
Process unstoppable, process so slow
It's eating me rabidly, it's taking everything
To this point, where I can't feel a thing
Cloudy bliss covering my vision
Blinding me, unable to make a decision
For myself in a road for my way
A way just for me, for silent heart to stay
After all, I just want some power
To express myself a little bit louder
Some way for me to smile and cry
And finally stop this crushing lie

My third, and refill it from
The bottle, memories
Filling my head, like
Little movies of you and me.
All the smiles that left,
Nothing but... I don't know...
I can't describe it, without
Being cliché. I can't convey
What I mean, without
Using words already common.
So, why even try? Why do
I even write this for you,
When I know you'll never
Get the chance to read it?
A fifth glass refills itself,
Though I know I can't drink.
Still, the silent films play,
The happy memories dance,
And I sit here, my pen in hand,
Writing silent, and sweet,
Nothings you'll never hear.
