You know me better than I do

There's nowhere I've felt safer
Than wrapped up in your arms.

Meeting online gave us such a strong bond,
I loved you before I saw your face.
A promise gift sent as we were forced apart.
Our marriage vows exchanged by text,
We're never apart, no matter the distance,
You're in my heart, my mind, my soul.

From a reputation as a fierce gaming team
To our innermost fears and secrets
We've shared everything about ourselves.

Sister had gotten everything she wanted. Everyone loved her. Everyone wished to please her. She was the more beautiful one. She was the eldest. Mother and Father favored her over me. The best always went to her and I always got second best, if anything. They all hung on her every word and she got all the attention. I was left to my own design. No one to say I could or couldnt. No one to care if I failed or succeeded. Until one day in the most beautiful spring ever.

CIS vs GAR WarshipsCIS Warships vs. Republic warshipsCIS vs GAR Warships7 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
The Republic seems to have the advantage in capital ship combat, but the CIS has some equalizing advantages.
Many of the CIS warships are designed for mass production, and were designed for business scores not a full scale war. Many of the CIS leaders were cheap, and wouldnt spend the money for a traditional fleet. Only the Providences seem to be specifically designed for combat. The Lukrehulks are simply converted freighters with VERY strong shields and some turbolaser offensive capability., but with the sheer number of Turbolasers and the shield power added, with the fighter and troop compliment, a Lucrehulk is much a more battle-worthy ship than a carrier like a Venator (why it takes a flotilla to take them down). That's not bad at all for a converted ship, isn't it The Recusants are mass-produced destroyers. The Munificents are originally used to harass worlds heavily in debt, guard treasure vaults, and transfer finan

There she was again: that young Jedi woman. Battle raged around her, and one by one, her companions fell until only she and three others remained. And that was when they saw her: Revan. The Dark Lady wheeled around and stretched out her hand, deftly crushing the trachea of one of the Jedi within her invisible iron grip. The young one with the smooth alabaster face gave a start as she watched her friend choke to death. Revan flicked her wrist, and the Knight she held fast in her Force choke slammed into a wall and sank to the floor, lifeless. Revan allowed herself a sneer of contemptuous pride as the three remaining Jedi inched closer to her. She held the crimson blade of her lightsaber diagonally across her chest, both protecting herself and taunting her enemies.
Come to play, Jedi? she scoffed, her voice s

She believed in lies

He counted his lucky stars
She cursed barren skies
her laugh resonated, hollow
it echoed off the walls she built

He fell for her, hopelessly
He dreamed only to make her smile
she pretended he didn't exist
still, he was drawn to her (like a moth,

She told him she was too far lost

his eyes glinted, golden
bright enough to melt the frozen rock
she had called her heart
Despite her tries, she loved him, too
She decided to do something new:

Please forgive me for doing these things.

And now realise we could never together grow old.
How could I just let go and lose your smile?
Goodbye is a word I wish that will never be used
Goodbye is needed when our future never existed.

my hair feels bristled and nerve endings alert,

I feel removed from time as though it no longer exists,
ladybugs hover flawlessly over lemon green leaves,
their opaque wings lie open and red as freshly spilled blood,
I am constant,
I am still.

dipping their abdomens in the pale liquid,
I reach out to touch one and they are peach fuzz and peaceful this way,
it reminds me of the time you put your arm around my waist underneath fluorescent lights,
that moment felt still too.
iii. When I remove myself from the raised voices and thrashing emotions
I can breathe,
I can see through sightless eyes,
I can see the blue jays that are held in mid-air against a clouded ceiling,
now I can feel their wings upon my face and they leave traces of freckles everywhere they touch,
kind of like how every-time you left me I would find traces of your breadcrumb heart

What is Democratic Socialism?What is Democratic Socialism?3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democraticallyto meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives. Democracy and socialism go hand in hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken root, the vision of socialism has taken root as welleverywhere but in the United States. Because of this, many false ideas about socialism have developed in the US. With this pamphlet, we hope to answer some of your questions about socialism.

For to feel warmth in her heart
Is tantamount to suicide)

The world is now hers,
Her domain to rule over,
To enslave in her icy grip

Have you considered that the the world is just one large ripple effect,

Sol.Terra - Episode 1.1: Terra DayCal stepped into the doorway of his shuttle and raised a hand to shield his eyes. The light on Terra was so harsh, particularly this continent. He reached into his coat and pulled out the tinted glasses and the bio-scanner he carried. Slipping the glasses on, he checked the scanner screen to make sure he had landed in the right place. The readout confirmed it: Sol.Terra, Australia, Sydney. A small blip on the corner of the screen told him the Soschan he’d been sent to find wasn’t far away. Too violent for IU membership, many Soschans had taken to using their unique camouflage ability to emigrate Off-World illegally.

He wore a black military uniform with a sleeveless robe, both fastened tightly with the uniform's belt. On that belt he had the Lightsaber of Anakin Skywalker on his right side, and his own Sith Lightsaber on his left. He wore a black cape over his shoulders and draped over his back. The cape was fastened by a chain link that rested on his chest. Vader's cybernetic right arm was still covered by the black battle glove he wore during the Clone Wars.
