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.

Starved of hope.
I'm just that cutter
Reaching for rope.
I'm just that dumb blonde
Reading all night.
I'm just that coward
Bleeding for a fright.
I'm just that child
I'm just that girl
With messy hair.
I'm just that burner
Wanting to be cool.
I'm just that geek
Scared of school.
I'm just that emo
Smiling with glee.
You're just another drone
But you'll never be me.

Rainbow Dash stalked out of her house, muttering to herself angrily. It was the night after Applejack had shouted at her for asking for her love, and the day hadn't gotten any better since. She saw, way down on the ground, Applejack running out of the library, and gave a pained smirk. "Look at that... AJs running back to her precious Trixie now is she? Huh. What a surprise."
As she muttered to herself angrily about the oddities of CERTAIN FILLYS and how they could SOMEHOW resist the Dash, she didn't notice her slow and unintended descent- at least, she didn't until she crashed into Twilight's treehouse library. "Oh, horsefeathers", said Dash angrily. The day just wasn't going well for her.
Twilight galloped up to the crash zone, where she found the cyan filly lying in the tree. "Rainbow Dash..." she said to herself, tutti
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. Rena,Chung & Aisha were already there. "Where's Elsword & Raven??" Eve muttered. "Still sleeping." Aisha replied in an annoyed tone, Eve shrugged then,said "Well, It is 6:20..

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

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

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.

Her words echoed in his mind. His arms held out away from him and his head up, he looked similar to the crucified image of christ. His hair was shaggy and tangled, and tears were dried on his face. He tilted his head back slightly and looked upward. "If only I had known..." he whispered. "If only I had been smarter...not blinded by love..."
"Silence!" The word rang throughout the large room. He winced and his eyes began to tear up once again. "Yes, mistress..." he whimpered. Shivers ran through his body as her laughter flowed from above.
His left arm jerked upward and he winced the familiar tugging pain in his palm. He glanced at his hand and saw the nearly invisible string going upwards. The connecting wound had begun to bleed again. His
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 War4 years ago in Settings More Like This

For the father's sins, pass to his son.
Now the gate has been unlatched.
Headstones pushed aside.
Corpses shift and offer room.

Behold the fear your mothers could not withstand
Brace for war of terror, blood and flesh and bone
You will fall by my starving hand.
For your father's sins you must atone

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, 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.

Or rather eye to shoulder,
I may not be too young,
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,

But I can't find freedom in disbelief.
So let me go, before love grows forgotten,
