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?

"It's SG1, Sir." The technician announced.
"Open the iris."
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

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.
The Lost City THE LOST CITYThe Lost City7 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

Here is my heart
I give it to you
Take it from me
And do what you want to
You can display it
For everyone to see
Or you can rip it up
Right in front of me
But heed this warning:
Its fragile, beware
You can damage it painfully
Even with the smallest tear
So what will you do?
Create or destroy?
But you have been warned
This is not a toy
So here is my heart
I give it to you
Dont give it back
Just do what you want to

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.

It's warm up here,

on this foreign
pale orange wall of steel
I find myself clinging,
High above the concrete floor,
distance sounds filling the void
deep inside my mind.
I try to hear my own thoughts:
Where am I?
What is this unknown place?
Where is... everyone?
I ask myself through the mist
of confusion that surrounds me.
10... 9... 8... 7... 6...
A new sound echoes,
but yet I do not heed it
or understand what it means.
Yet, I find myself wondering...
What is that?
That doesn't sound like the cries of a bird.
It sounds too mechanical for a howl.
That isn't... the sound of an animal.
It doesn't sound... natural.

We have lift off.
The wall quake and roars
with all its might.
I find myself clinging on,
mystified but yet afraid.
Is this object I am holding on to
Some form of behemoth
trying to throw me off?
What should I do?<

Cirrus was born in the great city of Manehatten, Equestria, into the rich family of Dart Skybreaker, owner of the multibillion bit ‘Skybreaker Estates’ whom specialised in the construction and design of various high rise housing and business buildings, namely apartments, offices and quite unsurprisingly, Skyscrapers. Hence the company motto, ‘Break the Sky and Scrape the Heavens’.
Her mother, Ruby, was a fine connoisseur of the arts, fashion, cuisine and architecture. Wherever her husband Dart managed to find willing investors for his business, she would ultimately be the brains behind Dart’s financial braun. They say that behind ever successful stallion there is a great mare. For the Skybreaker enterprise, this was no different. Though gradually, as the family business began to grow, so too did Dart’s ego. Soon, Ruby’s genius and wisdom would be crushed under the brash eighteen wheeled chrome plated force that was a stallion’s lov

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

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

Chapter 1: Death is only the beginning.
The full moon rose above the dark meadow that stood at the borders of the forest. The night was exceptionally quiet, as if it were in mourning for a great tragedy. However, the only sounds that could be heard were that of light footsteps wading through the grass and dirt.
The soft noise had caught the attention of a demon that was out searching for a long-awaited meal. He had gone hungry for the past few days, unable to catch a decent meal due to being beaten to his ideal meal of villagers by stronger demons. But, it seemed his luck was starting to change. He had recently come across a sacred jewel shard, a jewel that can increase ones strength and power. He embedded it into his forehead, which immediately surged a wave of strength throughout his body.
This new power made him feel invincible

He took another composed and deliberate breath and forced himself to focus all his senses onto his hands to perceive the cold, smooth glass, with all its subtle nuances. Which areas of his skin did connect to the cooling material and which did not. It took him a moment before his focus on this coolness started to ebb away his raging fury piece by piece. He centred his thoughts until he was sure he was able to concentrate his mind unhindered on the essentials again.
Exactly eleven days ago he had asked John Sheppard if there was to be a next time and did not get an answer from him. Now however, he had received his answer.

"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. It was no longer of any relevance.
Impassively he felt the leather cuffs firmly close around his waist, followed by his wrists and ankles.
He would comply and wait. Move inside the small radius of action which was available to him. Step by step. Waiting for the moment when it was time for him to jump. Of course it had not yet come to pass. But it would come eventually.

Mga sarili'y kinilala ng lubusan
Sa bawat araw na nagdaan.
Sa tuwing kailangan ng isang kaibigan
Karamay o di kaya'y kausap man lang,
Ang bawat isa ay laging nariyan
Sa loob ay nagpapagaan.
Ang sarap balikan ng nakaraan,
Nakaraan na puno ng kasiyahan.
Ngunit ano ang kinahantungan

Nauwi sa luha't kapighatian.
Ngayo'y mag-isa na lamang
Sa mga jeep na ating sinasakyan
Noong ang ating pagkakaibigan

Rated PG 13. Genre: Sci-Fi / Drama / Romance
Takes place after the events of Season 2, episode 13. Slight alternate timeline from there on. Since the ending was so screwed up, I decided to fix it and make it more enjoyable, and to make more sense.. BTW, Spoilers ahead if you have not read the manga, nor seen the anime series.
...Get some tissues ready too...
I originally planned this as a One-Shot story, albeit somewhat long.
But I decided to continue it for at least 2 more chapters, since I've
gotten so many Faves...so with that, I thank you!
If you Fave this, please leave a comment below in the Comments section. I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

Higgs ordered the soldiers to settle down and took the seat directly opposite to him. The interior of the craft was now rimmed with the soldiers. Some stared at him with undisguised curiosity, others who were obviously better informed, with disgust.

The streets of Konoha were all empty, for today wasn't a day when everybody would be out and chatting and buying and selling in the streets. Today was the day of christmas. Today friends and family would be joined together for having a merry christmas.
Hinata realized how empty the streets were when she walked a little around. Almost no one were to be seen. She was wearing a furred coat that she always wore at christmas time. It was good using it especially when it was so cold as it was. Therefore she had to put on a hat and some gloves too to keep her warmth. She didn't exactly know why no one would want to go outside in this weather. The snow had just fallen last night and the untouched snow was very pretty to look at.
