Can you give a soul salvation?Can you give a soul salvation?3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
In the war with only night
In the shadows fearing light
One gives way to take respite
This the plea, he shall incite.
In the dark, he's lost in fright
Weary of the eternal plight
Singing that solemn lullaby,
Of the stars that have gone by.
Lost forever in the fight
From the danger and fright
Lacking will to neither live nor die
For them to strike he thus invites
Only a love from the days of old
Can stop the darkness taking hold
But his heart has grown so cold,
To decay, his body sold.
Who can offer him salvation?
Through the fear of annihilation?
Driven mad with isolation,
Can you save A souls temptation?
Who can off the love and light,
In the approaching dread of night?
In the coming of the swarm
Who can chase away the swarm?
From his death to his birth
Angels and demons war on earth
For whatever his soul is worth
Save this man from the markers words.
Dead Space - LaughterA seedy motel on the outskirts of Mars Capita was the last place Isaac ever expected to find himself "living" in - and yet, here he was, a fugitive on the run, groaning as the Martian sunrise hit his face. He shifted in the creaky twin-sized bed, irritated that his long-awaited good night's rest had been so rudely interrupted. Apparently, he thought, even the goddamn sun didn't want anything pleasant to happen to him.Dead Space - Laughter4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Story of my life. He opened his eyes, grimaced, then pulled himself out of bed, his back aching and his limbs still sore from his run on the Sprawl. Then, with a long, pitiful sigh, he stood. If he wasn't going to get to sleep in, he figured, then at least he should go wash his face in some nasty, foul-smelling Martian tap water.
Isaac didn't notice it when he first walked up to the mirror over the sink - only after he had vigorously rubbed the sleep from his eyes did he see a giant penis d

Wind blowing in my hair
All alone was I
Because of my who I'd come to be
Others only stared
Then it began to storm
Salt tears on fresh rain
I fell off my roof
Sure soon to feel more pain
You caught me without harm
Even in the awful beating
Of the thundering rain
All the tourment of lonelyness
And all my inside pain
Your my sheild and Coat of Arms
My flag to show the way
After all the awful things I said
Even closer now you stay
And my heart this Rooftop Storm tonight
Forever will be warmed
By a fire I'll never let fade

The door on the right wall had been blocked, and when she mentioned it to U-Mos, he had assured her that his people had already cleared away the debris, and that there would be an elevator on the other side which could take her down into the storage area. Descending the lift into the courtyard itself, she recalled the battle that had taken place in this rooms Dark Aether mirror. Taking the designs for their Quad sentry robots to the next level, the Luminoth had begun designing a massive war machine that could help them defend the Fortress.

Tenten slowly walked towards the Academy that day. Her Genin exam had been simple enough. All she had to do was show Iruka-sensei a few simple techniques that she had mastered weeks before the exam. She thought that she would have been at least a little excited for today. It was something all her friends had been looking forward to. It was the day they announced the team rosters.
"Hurry Tenten! You're gonna be late!!!" Tenten looked up to see a few of the girls from her class running ahead of her. After waving half-heartedly to them, she looked back down. All she did was silently look at her feet as she walked. Her feet walked the familiar path to the Academy with ease. Why am I so nervous?, she thought. I should be excited like all my other friends. But Tenten just sighed. She knew that she wasn't close to anyone in her class. She was sure to be the outcast in any group she was put into.

Turning his head on the soft white pillow below his splayed out hair, Neji's eyes darted towards the far off wall clock. It was early. Only a quarter past midnight. He still had a little under five hours before it would be time to head out. He turned his head back to face the ceiling, closing his eyes in an attempt to will himself to sleep. This would be the last night he would get to sleep in a comfortable bed, with a soft pillow under him, and warm blanket to cover him.
The last night.
Neji's mind lingered on that thought. This could be the last night for a lot of things. The last night he would be in his bed. The last night he would be in the Hyuga compound. The last night he would be in the v

Peel back the skin and reveal my porcelain heart,
Like a clockwork doll, made in secret from the mountains,
A lock is encased in its center,
And the key was lost long ago
Given to a man of a name I've never known
You play music of the sweetest notes,
Stories of love and devoted trust
Love I don't deserve
Love I can only give away
What a truthful night it has been for this doll,
Every heart spoke its truth,
And she nearly cried from her shock
So much love and care,
From those she's never met never known
Her crystal blood flows freely now,
Warming up her ceramic skin,
Her glass lips shining,
Her bright eyes sparking,
You all have awoken me, once more.
I'm just the clockwork doll brought down from the mountains .
Basking in the unimaginable, unexpected love of your words.

Stretching a time from late 2186 to 2250, the Great Migration was commonly recognized as the period of time when the starfleets came to aid Earth against the Reapers return to their homeworld by FTL or other conventional means of commuting. By Quarian help, some larger battle fleets were renovated into starships to cope with a sustainable residency. While most have left the Sol System, some choose to resettle themselves on Earth or closer clusters like Tuchanka to help the locals rebuild their homeworld. This caused a shift in galactic powers for a moment, until the Galactic Alliance was established.
The Galactic Alliance, established in year 2193, is an inter-stellar organization between the former Citadel Council, the Systems Alliance, and the Perseus Consortium. The three major players in the field combined their resources to host aiding programs and agencies

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.

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.

A cold waterfall leaks,
From my pale and bruised skin,
Unveiling the ruby waters within.
As I bleed between the sheets,
The brutal, chilling slash speaks,
A slurred and vicious kiss,
From underneath the painless bliss.
As I bleed amongst the sheets,
A river of tears and pain meet,
Unleashing the terror and hidden ecstasy,
My only cure, a final remedy.
As I bleed below the sheets,
The lines of red bleat:
A sickened cry for help or aid,
Before my soul is left to fade.

The Greatest Feeling in the World</i>
I have a memory,
One full of feeling,
Of joy and elation;
It is a simple thing,
Intimate and tender;
It fills my heart,
With thoughts of her,
With laughter and happiness,
With tenderness and love;
It is a small thing,
But of such deep meaning,
Of such deep feeling:
The love, joy, and freedom I felt,
When I held her hand,
When I kissed her lips,
When I ran into her arms,
The greatest feeling in the world,
Is holding her tightly in my arms,
And knowing we share something special.
There is nothing wrong with this,
I loved her,
And thoughts of her to this day,
Warm my heart.
When a man and a woman share this connection,
When they love and hold each other tenderly,
When thoughts of their kisses quicken their hearts,
Smiles and praise are sent their way;
But two women?
How could this be?
How could their love possibly equate
To the love a man and a woman can share?
I can answer this,
Simply look into my heart,

I found myself growing closer
Until I stood right in front of him.
