On my face
Reminding me of what
Time cant erase
You cannot see me
Am I really a ghost?
Do you really forget me
Even when Im the host?
Do I have a chance?
What would you say
If I decided to tell you
My secret one day?
Would it be too late?
Would you already be gone?
Then where will I go
To sleep until dawn?
So many questions
With no answers to bear
I look at you and think
Do you even care?
The Lost City THE LOST CITYThe Lost City8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So long a city sleeps in silent slumber,
With only the ocean's tiny bubbles in company.
Far, far above, lies the great haven, the Sky,
Yet it is far, far out of reach for her towers.
She lies in wait,
She the Lost One,
The Lost City of the realm,
She of Pegasus.
The great city of Anscestors lies,
In a slumber of anxiety,
She weakens underneath her oppressor's might,
Those many tiny droplets,
So feeble on their own,
So strong when united.
Then, a rumbling at her heart,
Her blue hearth opens and from it,
Emerges many tiny creatures,
Carrying crates and odd devices.
So primitive, she moans....
Are they to save her?
The great city of the Anscestors.
She watches, opening her eyes of light,
Which shine upon their faces.
Sounds appear upon the air,
They speak to her, and to one another.
"Is the city alive? It's like it knows we're here."
One ponders of her majesty.
She grins, and opens her mouth wide,
Showing them her wonders far beyon

Sam and Teal'c stepped from the event horizon onto the ramp and were quickly joined by Daniel. Jack was just about to turn away when a fourth stepped through the shimmering blue vortex. The unexpected guest was not human, it was a large dog that looked to be a cross between a German Shepard and a wolf. The animal looked around and his toothy jaw dropped open.
"Carter!" Jack called across the intercom. "On your six!"
Sam whipped around and froze at the sight of the large wolf like dog that was standing on the ramp behind her. She automatically raised her weapon at the creature. Teal'c also brought his staff weapon into posit

Using Sams icy blue eyes perfectly River glared at Jack. Sitting on one of the beds in the infirmary River once again grabbed the front of the lightweight jacket she was now wearing. Jack reached out and took her wrists.
No. Jack said with a stern tone.
With a look of defiance River jerked out of Jacks grasp and ripped the jacket open with enough force to send the buttons flying. With the jacket torn she went for the collar of the black undershirt. Jack took a firmer grip on Rivers wrists to stop her from undressing herself. Restrained the wulf in human clothing started biting at the evil shirt.

Sam bounded through the chest deep snow of a high mountain forest. The bright sun glinted and dazzled off of every surface, however it brought no heat. There were some unusual sounds in the background of this winter wasteland, but they did not concern her. The only sense she was concerned with at the moment was tracking down the source of the musky odor in the air.
Pausing for a moment Sam bent down to sniff at the new fallen snow. Her panting breath was forming little white clouds that condensed into ice on her whiskers. Now more sure of her direction she sprinted off once again.
Coming to the tree line of the vast mountain range Sam skidded to a stop. Throwing her head back Sam howled, her canine voice traveling far through the crisp dry air. Without waiting for a response Sam ran out into the clearing and began digging frantically at the mound of snow beneath her paws

I fail to see the humour in this.
Yeah, well you would, Daniel.
Jack, what am I going to do?
Do what I'm about to do: go back to bed.
With that said Jack hung up the phone. Daniel sighed heavily and put down his own phone. He should have known that Jack would be no help, but he had to call someone. Suddenly finding himself being kicked in the lower back Daniel turned around from his position on the edge of the bed. Jackson was chasing something in his sleep.

Laying on his back Daniels leg jerked in his sleep. He found that he slept far better in Jacksons body than his own. Jackson didnt mind, in fact he seemed to learn faster if he was taught something in his own form and then allowed to sleep in Daniels.
However, sleeping as a dog did have its disadvantages...
...like sensitive hearing.
Rolling over Daniel blinked a few times and looked over at the clock. It was barely six am. The incessant knocking repeated itself. Groaning Daniel crossed his paws over his face, hoping that theyd just go away.
Alright, alright. Im up, Im up.
Assuming it was Jack pounding on his door Daniel didnt bother switching bodies. He slunk out of bed and padded over to the door.

so that I won't forget your name.
You're tattooed on my soul
therefore life will never be the same.
How could I ever focus
with your memory in my head?
how could I sleep at night
with your scent upon my bed?
How did I ever trap myself
inside such a dream.
Though this is all reality,
nothing is as it would seem.
You're tattooed on my arm
to show I belong to you,
and tattooed in my mind
with everything you do.
What is it that you do
that gets me this way?
What is it that you do?
What is it that you say?
Why do you do this to me?
Why can't I just shrug you off?
You take away my self control,
and conquer my every thought.
You're Tattooed on my arm,
my mind, soul, and heart,
to show that my love for you
was pure right from the start.

Jack woke slowly without opening his eyes. It took him a moment to figure out why he was so warm before realizing that it was Sam snuggled up against him. Her short hair tickled the underside of his chin anytime either one of them took a breath. He wasn't sure what the future was going to hold for them, all he knew was that he didn't have the emotional strength to cope with it right now. In fact he wasn't sure he had the energy to even face the day and thought about just going back to sleep.
A sudden hot rush of air against his face caused Jack to furrow his brow in confusion. The rush repeated itself. Jack had that eerie feeling of being watched. He slowly opened his eyes, fully expecting to find River watching him. When his vision cleared he did find a mutt staring at him intently, but it wasn't River.

The Wulf hybrid bounded down the hall towards the elevator with his tail held high. The people in the hall moved to the side as the pair barreled towards them. Jackson skidded to a stop in front of the closed elevator doors.

Before Jack could catch up to his prey Jackson reared up and slammed his paw down on the elevator button. The doors slid open and he escaped into the elevator. As the doors closed Jack could see the mirth in the Wulfs golden eyes.

I find myself clinging,
High above the concrete floor,

I try to hear my own thoughts:
Where am I?

Where is... everyone?
I ask myself through the mist

A new sound echoes,

It sounds too mechanical for a howl.

It was rare that people truly did amuse him, so today was no exception. The only things that entertained his great mind were himself and Miss Pepper Potts. Tony Stark was a man of genius--a man who deserved to be surrounded by the best and only the best. He was a shark amongst goldfish; a wolf amongst sheep. Finding himself encircled by dimwits and bigheads who did not deserve whatever standing they had managed to slimily climb to was not big on his very busy agenda.
So why was it that today he was currently stuck in one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s many offices, awaiting for Fury to bring out someone who apparently had taken agent Phil Coulson’s place among their many-numbered staff, when the man of iron had much better things to do? Such as taking Miss Potts out to dinner in France, or perhaps working on his suit? It was due for a tune up, at any rate.
Alas, Tony Stark’s life was a cruel one. He was the most talented of all the Avengers--brains, braw

Donning his battered orange jacket and a worn pair of pants, Admiral Carth Onasi abandoned his military dedication -- and posture -- in attempt to fit in with the crowd. He'd been tracking down various information brokers and well-traveled smugglers with hopes that someone would have news of Revan. Unfortunately, due to his promise, his selection was restricted to whatever scum was stupid enough to work in whatever Republic territory he was stationed at.
In this instance, he had been recommended the services of an up-and-coming Bothan sludge news reporter who seemed to know more about the celebrities she was stalking than their own mothers. He'd reviewed the reports local authorities had filed against her and found it incredibly easy to predict what nightclub she would make her next appearance at. Driven by the desire for information and the need for a stiff drink, he found himself seated next to her at the club's strategically lit bar.

We lost the fight
With trembling hands
We shot on sight
Knee deep mud
Cold hard faces
Looked to the left
All the dead's paces
Advaced then fell
Mowed down with ease
While all the generals
Sat, sipping tea
Pointed on a map
That's where we'd attack
Little did we know
We'd fall 5 k back
Over the top
One after another
We gave what we gave
When asked to recall
My dear old friend
All I'll say is...
You cannot comprehend
The everlasting impression
Of James in my head
Writhing in pain
Two seconds from death
Then the silence that followed
His last ever breath
His face gaunt, hollow.

In stagnant pools the Beast does sleep,
A lurid gleam denotes its keep;
Twisted trees around it grow,
Bare of leaves and white as snow
The Beast! The Beast! It lies in wait
Deep within the murky lake
And as I passed its fetid lair,
A musty scent did fill the air
A memory from long ago
Of my lost Juriaco
Floated up from days long passed,
Then slipped out from my trembling grasp
The beast awoke with toothy grin;
Its yellow eyes; its heart of sin!
Rising from its foul pond
To break that ancient, sacred bond
And in a moment of silent doom,
My precious hopes the Beast consumed
That surreal love my soul did keep
Was lost forever to the deep
And now I stand beside the pool
Through the spring and through the Yule
Frozen like those ghostly trees
Yearning for my memories
Until at last, should you come by
Only trees would you espy
All of them like me deceived;
Forevermore they can not leave
This twisted forest built on loss
Of dark desires, secrets, thoughts

"Do not worry John. It is still too early to be concerned." He thought with amused satisfaction as John Sheppard kept his suspicion against him alert. Not that it was entirely misguided. And not for the first time he acknowledged John Sheppard of being a worthy opponent. Although he wished he would not have to see him as such. Todd resolutely brushed the thought aside as superfluous.
