We Are ForerunnerIn our riches you will find,We Are Forerunner4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The key to what we left behind,
Hidden deep within the dark,
A single final glowing spark,
Our perfect everlasting mark,
Buried safely on the Ark.
But first we had to end it all,
And death incarnate - had to stall,
So we stood there side by side,
To stop the unrelenting tide,
Holding back the endless Flood,
That sought to taste creations blood.
And so the rings we did ignite,
To burn it all and end the fight,
It purged the worlds and all their skies,
And brought about our own demise.
I'm sad I caused the decimation,
Of every species - every nation,
Yet I pray you stand our station,
Loyal guards to all-creation.
Sangheili Heritage Part 1Sangheili Heritage (Part 1)Sangheili Heritage Part 16 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Sangheili, a strong and noble race,
Masters of battle, on land and in space.
They were once a race unknown.
Though very mighty, they were alone.
Till the Prophets arrived, bringing war.
Their mighty weapons, hard to ignore.
Both races fought a mighty duel,
But losses were high, the fighting cruel.
This was a battle which couldnt be won.
A great new alliance had just begun.
The Sangheili established numerous legions,
Whose power was used to take many regions.
More holy relics they had to claim,
That was their most important aim.
The Covenant Empire continued to expand,
Aided by races from each conquered land.
The Sangheili became a great warrior class,
Leading other races, deployed en masse.
The prophet leaders continued to preach,
About the Great Journey the Covenant would reach.
But these claims, told by every minister,
Ignored a truth, far more sinister.
These truths would not be found,
Till the Covenant gained more ground.

Happy Holidays, my angsty friend!
I know, I know. Holidays? you are wondering. What are those? Happy? pfft. No such thing. Not any more. Well, the annual winter days of celebration are upon us, whether you recognize them or not. And happiness can come in any size or shape.
Take, for example, the box sitting before you now. Wrapped in silver foil. (More resistant to heat.) Held closed by a thin silk ribbon, shiny black. (A color we have in common, hmm?) I tied it myself. Yes, my fingers are working again; thanks for asking. A couple of years of therapy and all of my limbs now move as I wish them to. Zach may have won that battle, but I won the war. See. It does happen. If we want it to. But, man, we have to REALLY want it. We have to decide to want it. Thats just a little free advice from one whos been there to one who thinks too much and acts too little. Take it or leave it, Ahren. No charge.

Dragon otherkinThere is a huge difference between physical body and spirits. They are two separate things, and they are not necessarily the same. Take otherkin for example, they are human in body but something else in spirit. You may or may not believe on otherkin but I want you to believe that the soul exists. And if you want a proof well you have to look at yourself. I cannot place a mirror in front of you, and say: Look that is your soul, you have to find it on your own.Dragon otherkin7 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

People call me insane.
How do they know?
Can anyone truly say what is insane?
And what isn't?
Who can judge? Everyone.
Who has the right? No one.
They are not mind-readers.
They have no way of knowing
What is inside my head.
Even if I write it down,
It is changing all the time.
Points of view, opinions.
The next second they become old
And new ones take their place.
Constantly changing, evolving,
Inside my head.
Always questioning, thinking,
Reasoning, and imagining.
Insane? I don't think so.
Truth is a matter of opinion
Everyone is insane
At the exact time
That no one is.
Why must people call me insane?
Why must they fear me?
Is it me they fear
Or what will come out of their mouths
If I prod long enough?
Are they afraid of opinions
And actual thoughts,
Or is it just
Tiny, insignificant me?
Why must people fear
What they do not understand?
Worse of all,
They don't try to understand.
They just stick a label on me, POP!
I am crazy.

You know when you care about them more then yourself.
You know if you would risk your life to save them if they needed you to.
You know if their happiness matters more to you than your own.

Do You See?Do you see that girl over there?Do You See?4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The one laughing unbelievably hard,
With all the emo jewelry?
She looks like she's up herself,
Her voice carries all around her.
If you knew how broken she is inside,
You would cry for her.
Every day she covers her pain with fake smiles,
She acts like the world is a fairytale,
Because she has no hope for herself.
Sometimes she starts shaking,
Clutching her head,
She hears voices,
And see's visions of her future daughter,
And nobody understands how much it truly hurts.
Do you see that boy over there?
The one holding his girlfriends hand,
Looking as if he couldn't be happier?
He broke a beautiful girl's heart,
The broken girl's heart.
He knows she's struggling,
But he never attempts to talk to her.
She is too scared to tell him what's happening to her.
Things hurt him too,
But he covers the pain with this new girl,
But he will only end up hurting her.
Nobody ever offers to help him,
He always feels in the dark,
Do you see that girl?

Ive shared thousands of kisses with men
who don't exist
I close my eyes and runaway from reality
Where I gain everything I don't have
When I close my eyes I can fly
I can climb
I can swim
I can scream
I can cry
And no one laughs
No one gives me a funny look
they don't ask
"Is she crazy?"
"Is she Insane?"
The people in my mind don't judge
They only act
I am supposed to stay in reality
But how can you expect me too?
My mind,My imagination is so much better
Do I care for reality?
Does it care for me?

Forget what you think you might have known.
Because those thoughts I cannot condone.

For those who live.
This is the gift I give.
Cut your strings and make you lifeless.
The look on your face will be quite timeless.
Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
For the world has yet to know that you've died.
Because, you see, the clocks of death have no numbers.
Where time goes one often wonders.
And now it seems I must be on my way.
For yet again it is time to slay.
But young child do not fret and fight.
For death has come upon you quickly this night.

I blink at the faint voice, but all I see is darkness. The first thing I feel is pain as I regain consciousness, my whole body is aching. I try to move but I can’t, it hurts to even try.
“H-he” I cough with a raspy voice. “I’m…here!” I call out in a weak moan with all my strength.
I don’t know if they heard me or not. I don’t even know what’s up and down, my whole head is spinning.
The next time I open my eyes I see a flash of light across the ceiling and footsteps approaching. One of the flashlights hit me straight in the eyes between all the rubble. It’s blinding and I hear the man call for the others.
They found me. A wave of relief washes over me and mixed with the pain it’s a strange sensation.
Suddenly the rubble covering most of my face is lifted off and a man is looking down at me.

Her sweet lips so full and soft and pink,

If only she saw, if only she could know
