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.

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

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 - 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 - Laughter5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

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
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

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.

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.

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.

A traveler noticed a web in his camp.
And the tiny dridder filled with fright.
The night was cold with wind and rain.
Flashing lightning scared the tiny dridder,
that could fit in one of his hand.
The young man, with kindness in his eyes, did not refrain.
He sang her this song and held out his hand.
'Little dridder, little dridder, why are you here?
May I pick you up, if you don't lay eggs in my ear?
Little dridder, little dridder, let me warm you up.
I've made some soup and I'll pour you a big cup.
Little dridder, little dridder, let me hold you near.
And may my heart's warmth be sincere.
Little dridder, little dridder, there's no need to fret,
For there is no need to hold any sort of debt.
Little dridder, little dridder, I am no one to fear.
It's true the world is cruel, but there is kindness here.'
As trees gathered rings, time past.
A giant dridder stalked a trail.
But when she found her prey she could only gasp.

Or rather eye to shoulder,

But you will still be older,
The choices that I make,
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,
My plea; I'm begging,
But I can't find freedom in disbelief.
So let me go, before love grows forgotten,

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.

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
in hopes that Saint Nicholas would soon be there.
When up on the rooftop, the patter of hooves
and a, "HO HO HO!" could be heard on the roof.
When down the chimney came Saint Nick himself
with toys for all children, in sick or in health.
As the presents were stowed and the stockings were stuffed
With candy, dolls, cars, sugar plums, and bits of fluff
Then a loud boom from behind, as the door slammed open wide
Santa turned around and who did he find?
His hair was jet black, his jacket was too
A pair of sunglasses, and crocodile skin boots.
From his boots to his shades he was covered with ammo
he wore the expression of a disgruntled Rambo.
As Santa considered diving for cover
Arnie pulled out a gun and screamed, "You are one UGLY MOTHA @#$%ER!"
The bullets came flying, in a shower of lead
Santa dove behind the couch, his mind filled w
