A Sad FarewellShe gave me life to succeed without fear.A Sad Farewell2 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Even when I ran far away, she cried
So many tears - her heart filled with despair.
The demons had consumed me deep inside
And used insatiable addiction
To tempt my transgressions with tirelessly
Flaming force; I cracked from its attrition
Like the damaged cells of a vessel tree
That can no longer grow without water
To drink. My cups always contain cheap beers;
Before my eyes adjust, the dawn slaughters
Me once again. I have none to say, "Cheers!"
With, so I sit alone, pondering life,
The things I've missed, the goodbye I never
Said - Sadness because of that stupid strife.
Feigning facades is my fate forever.
Your PoemYou appeared in my lifeYour Poem2 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Suddenly I must say
At your very own guise
Always there to make my day.
You easily made me your friend,
You never had to lie or pretend,
My soul you managed to unbend,
You're the one I always wanted to defend.
With what you said and what you did
I don't know if you realised it
Me, like an open book you could read
Everything would make sense if I revised it.
I fell in love, like never before
Suddenly in my life I had lost control
Over our conversations I began to pore
Searching for a sign, looking for more.
I did stupid things I will always regret
I thought I would lose you
I really wish you'd forget.
Never, ever did I mean to abuse you.
Still, with me you were so kind
You stole my heart, I lost my mind
Looks like for each other we were designed
You, everything I ever wanted, all combined.
When I'm with you nothing matters
You slowly build up my self esteem,
You kill my inner monsters
And make it seem like a lovely dream.
I love you, don't you see?
Your words are

But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor?
It will be tossed out, for it is useless.
And she walked with a light.
The light burnt out, and before she knew it
She was stumbling in the dark,
For she could not see the path she was walking.
She, as the salt, has lost it's value.
She is worthless.
She will be tossed out.

Hope, no more
But a weak feeling
For the freedom
Never to be found
Never to be fully lived
For an eternity

Of the pain
In my short existence
For hope and feelings
Never to be had
Never to be felt
Never to be lived
On soft wings of doom

even in the darkest of times
when the sun can’t reach
our lost souls
We cry out in pain,
but no one hears our call
The wind howls through desolate lands
and barren trees dance a sad ballad
while a lone bird
sings the song of hopelessness
we cry out in pain,
but no one comes to our aid
The shadows loom closer
and there is no where safe,
I cannot run or escape
for it never ends
We cry out in pain,
but no one seems to notice
The blows rain down
while the laughter catches the wind
and is carried to my ears,
a deafening sound
We cry out in pain,
but it just gets worse
At last, it’s time
to finish it all
the pain, the names, the abuse
it shall all disappear
We cry out in pain,
but we were ignored.
All that remains
is a poem,a photograph
of what once could have been
but never will be.

How doth the little butterfly flap it's tiny wings?
Uhm... no. That's not right.
Little butterfly; your tiny wings are so colourful.
They represent, dreams and hopes for the future.
But sadly, those dreams and hopes are easily crushed.
As easily as you are, little one...
Those dreams and hopes for the future were all crushed,
When your frail little body hit the windshield of that car.
I heard the crunch of all the parts of your body, breaking.
Along with you, my hopes and dreams,

Spirits of the Ice ForestThen sun rises over a forest near the South Pole, lifting the vail of the months of darkness. Down below a snowy landscape is revealed. For the animals here, it is a life and death challenge. A small feathered ornithopod stands on the snowy field outside the forest, watching the sky, as the sun begins to set again. The start of spring begins an astonishing story of life, at the poles. The sun sets back down completely.Spirits of the Ice Forest2 months ago in Plot Outlines & Synopses More Like This

The sun fully up over the South Pole. It is still the early Cretaceous, and dinosaurs are found in every part of the globe, even here, at the poles. It is spring, and most of the snow has melted. Yet temperatures will remain low, averaging 5 to 10°. Lying ahead is months of light during the summer, and months of darkness in the winter. Dinosaurs have to adapt to this environment, and they have in the most extreme way. Feeding nearby is a clan of Leaellynasaura. These little dinosaurs are only 2 metres long, relatives of those that
SilenceSilence.Silence3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
A language that everyone speaks.
But one that we are not able to hear.
A place where emotions and abandonment meet.
Of which we are forced to confront our buried fears.
There are no more lessons that the agents of society can teach.
An infinite amount of words expressed through a solitary tear.
People dish out advice but never practise what they preach.
A language with the same traits as a hopeful prayer.
A society where people judge others, as they sit back in their self proclaimed seats.
They can no longer understand you and they aware of the darkness that draws near.
Many lives led but we are all accompanied by the same drumbeat
Maybe you don't want to be heard but people will forcefully lend an ear.
Lips fused together, unint

Bind me within your embrace
Bestow me with your grace

Never let me see my weakness again
Blanket my fears so I won't cry
Cease the false hope from shining in vain
Ward away the lies that hide behind my eyes
Morph this disaster into a calm night
Burn the dying sun out
Darken the nightmarish sky
Let the ominous clouds melt
Lock away this cursed gift of sight
I no longer desire it
Shut out the world from you and I
I yearn for the abyss
Rip away my self-hatred
Bring back my innocence
Obliterate the life I created
And color this reality obsidian
Let the void consume
Paint my essence black
Devour what was once called truth
My faith is in your hands
I profess it all unto you

10: Loads and loads of free, open source software.
To paraphrase a recent advertisement, "there's a free app for that!"
Just about anything you need, any type of software, you can find a completely
free version, in many cases, superior to what you have to pay for in
Windows. Libre Office is 100% MS-Office compatible, and free. Shotwell and
KDEnlive are video editors nearly as good as Adobe Premier, and far superior
to Windows Movie Maker, The GIMP is at least as good as Photoshop, and the list
goes on and on and on.

I start on making the fire when I hear a strange cry. I look out to the mouth and see something big fly just over the cave and to the lake. It soars away before I get a good look at it, all I know is that that thing is rather big. It looks like my old pet, my tosp from back on the ship.
I sigh quietly . . . I miss Eka . . .
Shrugging it off, I go back to the campfire and spark a flame within minutes. For the past few weeks we have gotten used to our new lifestyle and gathered and made things that can help us out here. I made a habit out of gathering wood worth two to three nights, for tonight we're fine. Tomorrow I just might have to go out and get some more.

"Can you give me one of them, please?" Sirus says after shaking his head. I pick up one of my hairs from the ground and hand it over to him. He takes the two ends of the hair and pulls them, noticing that my hair isn't as weak as he believes them to be.
I smirk at him in amusement. "I take it, you didn't know that Asmodei hair does not tear easily?"
