Do you hear that?
Your time draws near!
I can see you there
as you tremble with fear!
Do you know why?
You see. The Black Sacrament,
It has be done.
Haha, it's no use;
You cannot run!
For Cicero, yes Cicero,
knows your every hiding place.
It's no use!
You can't win this race!
Because Cicero, poor Cicero,
Is the Night Mother's Keeper
So he must do as she asks!
For Her will is the one that runs deeper.
But yes, Cicero must return,
return to his duties, you see.
You cannot escape
your soul is the fee!
Your soul will go to Sithis!
To Sithis it will!
It will serve the Dread Father,
So, alas, I must kill!
Cicero likes a chase.
Run as fast as you can!
You must make haste!

"Aren't you afraid you don't have a job?"
"Aren't you afraid you don't have a girlfriend?"
"Aren't you afraid you don't have your future figured out?"
I am afraid of my future.
I am afraid because society has beaten the idea of it mercilessly into my head.
I am afraid because I'm being told my choices now will affect my whole life.
I am afraid I can't make those decisions yet.
"Everyones starting to get those grades up."

You're as bright as a star.
My days are filled with agony,

Never knowing you.

And I wish you the best,

You deserve nothing less.
So remember you this poem,
When you are feeling all alone,
I hope it will remind you,
You can always come back home.

The touch from you
For which I strain
For to hear your voice

Would give new life
Like planted grain
A kiss, sweet mother
Would be so kind

Out of time
To feel your words
Inside my mind
And know that I'm
Not left behind

The merry man's fight
To hold on to sanity
Lost in the night
The silence so empty
Held smothering tight
Even blind eyes could see
There's no end in sight
His family gone
When things had felt right
Hunted and burned
In flames so bright
Their acceptance a memory
Seeming so faint
When consumed by the jester
Who's laughter did taint
No one to hold him
No one who speaks
No one to tell him
The words that he seeks
Praying for a whisper
To end his heart's strife
The echoing laughter
Creeps into his life

Just between you and me
Just our little secret
That will set my heart free
Free to become
Free to be one
That you had the same
Secret as me
But you were too scared to share it
Frightened I'd run
Or I'd flee
But with a laugh
With a smile
I'll beg you to stay
Be mine for a while
Please don't run away
Because the secret I hold
The one to be told
As our story unfolds
If I may be so bold
This secret I have
Is strong and it's true
So I dare-say quite simply
I'm in love with you.

An abomination of God.

And I love men,
Because I am gay;

Sceptile ReportSceptile (the Forest Pokemon) is an exceptionally rare Grass-type Pokemon found among forested areas in the Hoenn region and portions of South American jungles. Although they might not have the sheer defensive abilities and energy needed to take many blows in battle, Sceptile are nonetheless vicious fighters that can easily defeat foes with amazing speed and agility. They might not bring the greatest offense to every battle, but they can definitely run circles around (and on top of) any opponent they face; just make sure not to get on their bad side, or you'll quickly find out just how painful their Leaf Blade and Leaf Storm attacks can truly be!Sceptile Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This

DiscordHere, in darkness of my prison, unmoving, I have laid here for hundreds of years. A god does not need food, water, air or sunlight. Eternity can be unbearable if you have nothing to keep you occupied. And what can you do, if you are locked in dark, cramped chamber, surrounded by all types of magical barriers?Discord3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
You start looking for a gap.
I still remember my sweet, beautiful Nightmare Moon, so bright and so proud. She would smash these locks, break the barriers apart. Leave nothing but slightest embers of magic, which would melt into her magnificent black mane. And then, she would make night and shadow itself kneel before its true goddess. But I am not strong enough. My powers pale in comparison to those of Nightmare Moon.
The only thing I am good at - is spreading seeds of chaos. To look for contradictions and create strife and discord.
That is why I'm not fighting my barriers. No, I listen to them; I seek out the gaps between two layers of defensive magic. Cracks within the shields wh

Though certainly not among the sturdiest of combatants, Shedinja are surprisingly dangerous creatures that truly push the limits of scientific knowledge in relation to Ghost-types far off the edge of comprehension. No one may know what they are truly after or what they even are, but for a one-trick pony, Shedinja aren’t too bad; after all, it’s not like there are any other Pokemon out there that are naturally immune to 12 different types!Shedinja Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Kabutops ReportKabutops (the Shellfish Pokemon) is an exceptionally rare Rock/Water-type Pokemon found among tropical areas near shallow coastal beaches worldwide, though only in exceptionally limited numbers. While they might not be the strongest of beasts out there, Kabutops are nonetheless vicious creatures that can easily prove to be too much for all but heavily-armored Pokemon to handle. They might not be able to utilize their natural Water-type abilities to do much in battle, but that will probably matter little once they've managed to cut the opposition to ribbons faster than they can blink!Kabutops Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
