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.

The two Surveyors made their way up to the console. Alexandra made it up first, climbing over the side and making her way to the supervisor. Robert angrily climbed up by himself, visibly upset that Alexandra wasn't there to help him up.
"Good work," the Supervisor said as he looked at the console, "We're getting a clear image. The engineers are currently moving the loader. Altman be praised at their progress. They are just barely ahead of schedule."
Robert got a good look at the screen. Sam Caldwell was currently pulling the loader on the track using his Kinesis Module. The Marker seemed to be glowing slightly brighter as the loader was brought in close.
"This is Cooper to Maxwell. You reading me, surveyors? Over."
Maxwell raised his right arm and punched the button on his comms module. A hologram vidscreen revealed the face of an engineer on the other side.

Personal Log of Samus Aran: Log File 11700
There are some days when I regret my choice of profession. I've lost count of the vacations and leisure trips that have been interrupted by the call of duty; what good is earning money if you never have the time to spend it? At least it seems the Galactic Federation has finally found a good reason to pull me away from my R&R; a Space Pirate fleet has been spotted traveling through Federation territory. It was hard to miss them; the Pirates had deployed several dozen ships of varying sizes. While this alone was enough to send the Federation into full-on panic mode, the Pirate fleet's behavior is even more disconcerting; it has repeatedly ignored Federation colonies and installations during its exodus. Even the vulnerable, certainly appealing targets have been passed up in favor of their app
Dead Space: SilenceEllie, where are you?Dead Space: Silence3 years ago in Horror More Like This
They say silence is golden.
But, we humans are not accustomed to true silence, as much as we may be unwilling to admit it.
The hum of a cooling fan. The rush of the tides. The roar of traffic from beyond the apartment's walls. The beating of our hearts. The puff of breaths, chest falling in and out, the creak of leather against a pilot's seat. The buzz of electronics, the roar of the C02 scrubbers. The sound of the stars themselves, twinkling, a manifestation of billion year old light reaching my eyes.
I found comfort in those quiet moments. But I did not know what silence was, I realize that now. True silence steals. It mars, it takes, and leaves nothing but a primal, unexplainable terror.
The fires have been extinguished by Tau Volantis. The baleful moaning of the red-hot shuttle chassis being therm

Delta Squad remained in the weapons training room even after the others had left, uncomfortable with waiting while there was a mystery waiting to be solved on "Planet StarChild". It was named "StarChild" after it appearing out of no where two months ago. No known inhabitants, parents, environment all seemed native to those who saw it. Out of curiosity (and precaution), the Delta squad was to be sent as an investigation team to gain information on this "unknown rock"... But for now, the team was to wait as instructed by Gabe (a male scientist who assisted in the making of the clones) while he brought out "Their new team member".
Sev (RC-1207) used this wasted time of waiting to his advantage by attacking holographic droids. Scorch (RC-1162) and Fixer (RC-1140) sat on near by crates while the Delta Squad team leader, Boss or 38(RC-1138) paced anxiously.

The entrance to the Sanctuary Depths is just past the Fortress Temple courtyard, to the right.
Samus had remembered that area, the Luminoths final defensive position before the Fortress generator. 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. The giant four-legged walker was dubbed Quadraxis, but the Fortress fell to the Ing before Quadraxis could be completed. Not one to ignore such an opportunity, the Ing took Quadraxis back to Dark Aether,

Is this what they call Love?Eve yawned slightly as she opened her eyes, She glanced tiredly at the envelope at the side of her bed. It had a trimmed red & gold edge with a small red heart in the middle of the envelope. Eve didn't understand why humans participated in this holiday called "Valentines Day", She didn't have "romantic" feelings for anyone. Eve sighed & thought "Why on earth did Aisha make me participate in this stupid event?!" Eve got up then, stretched a little. Last night was tiring with everyone trying to seal off The Gate of Darkness. Eve exited her room to get changed into some casual clothing, Eve slid on a dark long-sleeve top then some blue jeans. Eve felt odd wearing these common clothes, but she always felt a bit odd when trying something new. Eve walked out of her room to where everyone usually meets up.

some people have parts of their body they are sensitive about... ask her... and try not to focus on those parts but do show them love if she allows.
-when you are w/ someone esp. someone you love... if you or they have been abused in some way... held down or hurt in some way w/ some one the more vaulnerable you get w/ someone the more these things may come up. you wouldn\'t want her and she wouldn\'t want you to flash back and not tell you or be put through something they can\'t take.
-a good way to help this out is to have a STOP word like \"k baby\" or just pull one another in to a hug postion and let her know that this will be TOTALLY ok... before anything happens... reasuring is the key.

The Guidelines Of WarWritten about the firsthand accounts of Navy SEAL Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell during Operation Redwing in Afghanistan on 28 June 2005, showing the uselessness of the Geneva Conventions when the opposing force do not take after the Conventions themselves. Three of the four Navy SEALs on his team were killed in action due to the vote on letting three goat-herders go, instead of killing them, after they were discovered. The choice was based on the fear of the liberal media labeling them as murderers and resulting in imprisonment of four of our finest service-members; the choice got MOH-recipient Michael P. Murphy and Navy Cross recipients Matthew Axelson and Danny Dietz killed. Luttrell was also awarded the Navy Cross for selflessness in the line of combat.The Guidelines Of War5 years ago in Settings More Like This

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

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.

Katie jolted awake at the sound of the noise, then looked at the time. The digital clock read ten fifteen PM in its bright green colors in the surrounding darkness of the room. She decided to go to sleep early that night so she could wake up the next day with plenty of energy the next busy day ahead. She had scheduled meetings with several other chefs, whose recipes varied from chilis to casseroles. The woman had been studying the art of cooking, hoping to soon earn a degree and further pursuing her dream of becoming a professional cook, able to be hired for all sorts of occasions from informal parties to highly elaborate weddings.

But you will still be older,

Despite the consequences I face,
You might believe things change,
However, I remain the same.
The screeching claws that rip at my flesh,
Wear me down even at my best,
They're dragging me through a downwards hole,
Mimicking my cries as my heart grows old,
The scars are reminders that I remain unchanged,
I'm withering away in this endless game.
You understand this more than anyone else does,
Having witnessed the triumph of unattainable love,
Yet the faith that you pour into my soul,
Is so much more than I can convey,
Although you trust that things can change,
Haven't you noticed that I've remained the same?
The wails and moans that rise from the dark,
Are silent to the world as they only whisper to my heart,
Apart from you, I know no one can see,

But I can't find freedom in disbelief.

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.
