An Angel on this Field of Ice,
I hesitantly step on this,
Field of Ice.
This surface of ice,
It is but the most slippery,
Field of ice.
I try moving slowly,
On this surface of ice,
But my Crooked skates,
Knock me off balance.
As I start to fall,
For the very first time,
I accept help,
And In no time,
A hand catches me within the fall,
She catches me from my misery,
And helps me escape the pain,
Field Of Ice.
With the sweetest voice,
Asks me,"Are you OK?",
Even though I seem afraid,
I nod aimlessly,
While I reach for her fragile hand,
I grab her hand firmly,
With the the grip even death itself,
Knows to be too tight.
This grip is,
And Almost unbearable.
Even though it is so hard,
For her to bear,
She continues to hold my hand,
Helping me inch forward on this slippery,
Field of Ice,
At first we move slowly,
But our speed gradually increases,
She lets go,
Telling me, "I will be back"
I watch her c

It broke into a million pieces.
I put it back together again; it still works.
Oh... I lost a couple of pieces... But it still works.
Wait! I've lost a couple hundred pieces... But it still works
Scratch that. I lost a couple thousand pieces... But it still works
Oh dear. Nevermind. I have about ten pieces left... But it still works.
Oh no... Well, I only have one piece of this fragile thing... But it still works.
I'm giving this last piece to you. I trust you. Please don't lose it.

"What is it like?"
"Magical. The best feeling of my life."
"What does it feel like to be in love?"
"Let's see Being in love is like the beautiful rainbow after a storm. It's the butterflies in your stomach and the tremble in your fingertips. It's the pink on your cheeks caused by something other than a cool breeze and the inability to do anything but smile. It's the fact that every day seems brighter and giving up hope doesn't even cross your mind."
"Yeah, love is an amazing feeling."
"You must love someone quite a lot."
"I do. But why do you suddenly want to know so much about love?"
"Well, I thought I was in love. But now I'm sure I am."

Remembrance Day originates at the end of World War I. The idea is to honor those who died in the line of duty, defending their country from enemies. For all its pompous words and fancy granite memorials littered with colorful flower bouquets, Remembrance Day and others like it have failed miserably in achieving this goal.
I've often been criticized as having no respect, and that can be an impediment when discussing certain topics. However, I am often in luck – hypocrisy deserves no respect. What changed as a result of the enormous sacrifice of those who died in WW1? As the first bombs of WW2 fell just two decades later, millions once again obediently lined up under various pieces of colored cloths to slaughter and be slaughtered. It became obvious that absolutely nothing had changed, and that the millions of WW1 had died in vain.
Most would agree that all that lip service paid to the sacrifice between the two world wars wasn't good enough. To truly honor their sacrifice would be

Here I will be,
Waiting for you,
When the time will come,
When our hearts finally meet.
In the past,
My heart had been broken,
Broken so many times,
That the pieces of glass, Were so small,
They couldn't be pieced together.
You did something that was
You gave me a new heart,
A heart without any bruises,
A heart without any bends,
You gave me a heart,

So bright, That I am no longer afraid,
Afraid of my fears from the past.
In the past,
I would have never thought that such a thing,
Would be possible,
But that is love,
Love is something that amazes us,
Its powers are so unparalleled,
That we can't even begin to understand,
What lies behind the word, Love.
It is so powerful it gives us something that escapes us, Bravery.
Here I will be,
Waiting for you,
Hoping to find the answer,
To what Love truly is.

Look at me,
Our appearance may be different,

Luke stood in front of your house, straightening his tie and worrying about whether or not he was dressed too formally. He patted the box in his pocket, making sure it was there before breathing a sigh of relief. The night was rather chilly, so it was a relief when he heard the sound of your clicking heels growing louder and the door opened. The sight of you stunned him into silence for a few minutes before a breathless "wow" escaped his lips.
You blushed and folded our hands in front of you shyly. "Is it too much?" You spun, letting green fabric rustle across the floor. Your dress had a green bust, green, pleated skirt, a gold belt, and a gold halter strap. "You said formal, but I don't know-"
"It's perfect. I was actually just thinking the same thing, so we can be over-formal together," the words tumbled over each other in a rush from Luke's mouth. He held out his hand with a flash of pearly white teeth. "Now your carriage awaits." Amusement sparkled in his gr

“So we’re going to Jotunheim next?” you inquired to Loki as the two of you started your way out of the hall of knowledge. You held onto Loki’s hand and you went, trying to keep up the appearance that everything was fine. Odin’s words still haunted your mind, but you didn’t want to believe him.
Loki nodded slowly, though he didn’t’ seem too keen on the idea, despite having long since known that this was going to come.
You noticed his unease, but understanding that there were things about Jotunheim that affected him, you decided not to go down the road of “are you alright about this” for once. Even if you had dared to ask what about that

You looked at the door to Loki’s cell with the knowledge that the Avengers would all be watching.
No pressure… you thought as calmly as you could manage.
Then you opened the door, stepping into what seemed to be an even more frigid environment than before. You shivered, “Damn it’s cold in here.”
Loki turned around; he had been standing with his back to you at the far edge of his cage. You noted that he was no longer muzzled, but appeared more tired and beaten than ever before.
“[Name]… you came back?” He asked walking toward you as far as he could manage.
You smile at him, “More like I was allowed back… I would have been here sooner if not for lock and key…”
He grimaces, “They will regret such an action against you…”
You shake your head and walk toward him, “That won’t be necessary Loki… they did what they thought

“One, Two, Three-,” Loki counted aloud before the girlish screams sounded again. A few moments later Tony and Clint ran into the room in nothing more than a towel, their hairs coloured fluorescent pink and purple, with glitter covering their still slightly damp bodies. Everyone erupted into fits of uncontrollable laughter. Oh yes, even if the day had only just begun, you knew it would definitely be a good day.
Tony had absolutely no shame and decided that he would proudly walk around the Tower in a towel with fluorescent pink hair and gold glitter. Clint on the other hand ran away immediately and tried to wash the colour off. He returned almost half an hour later, far less sparkly… but that was about it.... His hair was still coloured bright purple, and had even leaked down to stain certain areas of his eyebrows.

You were ashamed and scared. And yet, you couldn't back down. Not when so much was on the line. . . When your future depended so heavily on your decision and how you handled yourself.
Whatever the case, you had to correct your blunders. You had to make it right, and that was that.
You slowly entered the den/living room of Stark (cough Avengers cough) Tower that was surprisingly vacant, and walked towards the deep, leather couch. You could see the reason of your unease sitting there; his blonde hair splayed out across the back of the couch, in ultimate relaxation despite what had occurred several hours prior. You tried to walk silently, but after a moment the God of Thunder stopped the charade cold.

Cocooned in my virtuality, the rate of disintegration can only
appear slow, the remorseless grinding of the geology of my days
When will the plates finally shift, the quake that banishes my quiddity
unthrone all sentience, the depths disown what had seemed to float
above the unplumbed depths of organicity,
impervious to the blood-boiling turmoil of the gut.
My truth is my mortality, that alone will never leave me go.
Conception, that implosive moment when a million futures perish,
when two in a moment of fusion predicate the existence of one,
when tangled ribbons of time are knotted and woven
into robes of potentiality, potentiality clothed in nascent flesh. Even as the blossom buds
the seeds of ultimate decay take root. That final moment
is adumbrated with the earliest stirrings of the embryonic heart.
My truth is my mortality, that alone will never leave me go.
