Why Do You Weep?Why Do You Weep?4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Why do you weep?
Those tears are not good enough to crown you.
Are you still asleep?
That sleep may be good enough to drown you.
A little smile may seem to be cheep,
Yet often that smile is good enough to crown you.
Let's forget all the pain,
Focus on what to gain,
Weather its sun or the rain,
Let's try it once again.
It is hard to succeed,
But a try is what you need,
May be you shall bleed,
Still you may succeed.
So let's rise from the ashes,
Get engaged in the clashes.
Ignore all the bashes,
Let's do what heart wishes.
If your path is true and right,
Then fight with all the might,
At the end of the night,
The light shall shine bright.

She had always known there was more then one way to skin a cat... you just had to out smart it; but how was the tricky part. Breathing deeply; her brows drawn together in an angry line, Teru stormed off of the school campus with her bag thrown over her shoulder. The few students who's stayed after hours all gave her odd looks, their eyes filled with mocking curiosity as she stomped her way to the bus stop; not the least bit aware of what had transpired only five minutes before. Teru was so angry she didn't even want to think about it, but she knew Kurosaki would.... if the small hand-shaped bruise on his cheek was to be any evidence of it.
With a soft roar of an engine the local bus rolled to a stop, its doors opening with a slight ring. Already having taken out her passage money, the brunette haired young girl dropped the yen into the bucket and moved to take her normal spot in the middle just by the door. Clenching the bar in preparation for the bus to jerk into moti

That binds me to you
Strong and metaphysical
I draw with a line
My purest vision of you
So beautiful inside out
And every motion - gentle
Just like in a dream
The wind handles
Ineffable, divine course
That I will never touch

EssenceWhen I think of you the Void slips away;Essence1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I play the first images of my being;
I create worlds and I am filled
It's like the first stone cast into the lake;
Waves expand and echo they rattle;
Stunned, I turn away from the Dark
With a smile.
Both the essence insist on hiding;
Within enclosures, dark forests;
With similar melodies resonating
Through the cracks.
Like in a mirror they are glimpsed;
Two drops of the same source;
Where lives arise and cease
The GeneralKalee burned.The General4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It was all he ever saw. He would see hints of it out of the corners of his eyes, licks of flame that were but ghosts of the true thing. If he shut his eyes, he saw it in full. Temples desecrated, thousands slaughtered. And Rothena, the flower of the life he had before, lost forever beneath the waves.
He did not shut his eyes often.
There was nothing he could do to quench these flames. They would forever be there, eternally tormenting him. All that this warrior knew to do was spread those flames, to ignite other worlds with that same inferno, so that others would know what it meant to be ravaged and broken.
So that was why the warrior once called Qymaen jai Shaleel, now known as General Grievous, stood here on Hypori before a massive collection of wrecked Republic starships. A droid army stood at his back, ready to move in and annihilate any survivors. All they needed was an order from him.
But that order was not going to come. For the General knew that the survivors hidin
Zombies Don't Drink TeaThe Dead don't need things like teacupsZombies Don't Drink Tea3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Useless trinkets, all washed away
No use for eyes, can't see tulips
There's no beauty, even in clay
No need for touch, it's all gone now
There is nothing left to live for
Yet they are still moving somehow
Exactly how, we are unsure
The Dead do not want anything
No desire for money or wealth
Don't have a job, don't own a thing
No worries or frets over health
It would seem the Dead have it best
So join me now! Let's all be zombies!
We'll all eat brains with renewed zest!

Ahsoka's Dream Part 1Run. Just keep running and they can't catch you. But how long can one person run without stumbling. She thought to herself. But who was she running from? The scene changes, darkness all around her. Only the sound is that of a heartbeat. She saw a body just laying there in someone's arms. Who is that? She kept thinking as I got closer. This when I realized it was Rex who was holding the body. Gently tracing the face with his fingers. Then looking over his shoulder she saw who he was holding.

Hot water rushes from the tap, creating more steam and fogging up the bathroom as the young Lylah relaxes deep within the tub after a long day of work as a dog's nail-stylist. Soaking in the lovely mass of H2O, she slightly smiles in total bliss life couldn't be better.

An invisible canvas covered my surroundings.
A celestial backdrop coated with toxic gasses transformed into ultimate beauty.
Reaching towards the nearest star,
I realized there was no way I could feel the particles,
Or the glitter of what I've seen on Earth.
Perhaps I can be a part of what lovers compare their eyes to.
Maybe they'll notice the brightest wonder of them all is what I'll expose myself to.
I push off the shuttle and release the safety rope,
Ignoring the other's screams and cries of panic.
Taking off my helmet,
I am what I've always wanted to be:

Summary: Firmus Peitt knew ghosts of the past haunted his commander. He just never expected to see one.
Type/Era: AU, about half way between RotS and ANH
Characters: Piett, Vader
Firmus Piett questioned his sanity. Ever since he was stationed aboard the Executor strange things had been happening. First he heard a child's laughter ringing through the halls echoing slightly. Then it was small footsteps, or a flash of movement in the corner of his eye. Once or twice he could swear he saw a boy running through the hanger.
In the beginning he just put it off as his imagination; a new post was a daunting task particularly under the Emperor's second in command, and a Star Destroyer was no place for a child anyway.
Within a few months however he noticed some similarities. For one, the boy only appeared after Vader let his... displeasure control his actions and had...ah....disposed... of an incompetent officer.

Há de haver uma lenda sobre tudo no mundo. Respondeu seu gêmeo.
A chama trêmula da fogueira iluminava o rosto dos idosos irmãos. O vento áspero e frio do deserto parecia não penetrar suas peles calejadas pela idade. As estrelas estavam bem visíveis no céu e a temperatura caía rapidamente.
O jovem deve pertencer a uma lenda. Seus olhos fitavam o estranho acolhido, o qual tomava sopa e sentava sozinho longe da fogueira.
Não há nada de lendário nele. O outro irmão comia um pedaço de carne salgada sem voltar sua atenção ao Homem.
A truculenta movimentação durante a instalação da caravana no oásis abafava a voz fraca dos irmãos,

I felt a warm body shaking me excitedly. I sleepily rolled over to see Finn smiling down at me and I screamed.
"What the hell?! FINN?!" I exclaimed falling out of bed.
His head popped over the edge of the bed to look at me. His grin was bigger than I could imagine and I felt myself roll my eyes angrily at him.
"It's 3:30 in the morning, and how'd you get in here?" I asked standing up to fix my T-shirt.
Finn soundlessly thrusted a sandwich in my face and I gave him a questionable look. I glanced at the half-eaten grilled cheese sandwich to see the image of Jesus and gasped out loud. His hand was clamped over my mouth before it became loud enough for my dad to hear.
"I know it's amazing right? I believe it is a message from God telling me to go out and do good with the world," he hissed as I glared at him.

I hear their frantic footsteps everywhere now,
Pounding again and again, in and out of my head,
Whispering, "You are not allowed to forget."
Serenity cried out as you struck and shoved
The strangled feelings I've suppressed,
And I saw how your hollowness bled
Out and made crimson puddles to drown my love.
Loneliness snickered to himself at me
When I broke down on your hard-headed ground,
Crying out to you 'please,' but silently
'Cause from around your heart I had been unwound.
Jealousy is tainting my lips, clenching my fists,
Urging me to the brink of insanity,
But never letting me jump free,
Down to darkness where I could fake believe.
Hatred is carving me this new heart of stone,
Slicing open white and red innocent flesh,
Devouring the purity lurking between my bones,
'Til I know not where my old heart rests.

I'll warn you upfront: this isn't glamorous.
At first, I thought I was in a car or on a plane. I woke up in an uncomfortable chair with an incredible headache and no idea where I was. My eyes slowly adjusted to the sickly yellow light, and I saw a ceiling with water damage. I didn't recognize it. I smelled mildew and smoke, which would've startled me if not for the headache.
I started to rub my head, but I couldn't move my hand. I looked down, and my wrist was stuck in something. Actually both wrists. And ankles. I didn't like where this was going.
Ugly laughter erupted from across the room. "About time you came around!" someone shouted. I rolled my heavy head to the left and saw Seth and Nate. They were sitting on an unmade bed, smoking.
Seth was not one of my favorite people. He worked at a bar I avoided, and he was why. He and I went back ten years, so we knew a lot of the same people. Like Nate.
Nate wasn't a bad guy, or at least wasn't till recently. He was lonesome and impression

The sky, he thought, had never been so blue and only now as he lay helpless on his back did he appreciate the true color it and wondered why he had never taken the time to notice it before now. Captain Rex felt the sun shining on his face, his helmet lay on the ground next to him. General Skywalker, or Anakin as he had demanded that Rex start to call him, knelt on the hard ground next to where he lay, lightsaber still ignited and a look of worry crossing his face. Rex could tell his lips were moving, but from the concussive force of the grenade that had gone off nearby, his ears were still ringing and he felt as though his limbs were made of heavy lead.
And what was that smell?
Rex's eyes grew wide as he finally recognized the smell and he tried to turn his head to see where it was coming from. It was the smell of parched and seared plastoid armor and, and..... blood.
Reaching up to touch Anakin's knee which was
