To Flowers And Trees They Offer Birth
Soil Caress The Warmth Of The Sun
Life's Mysteries Which Gaia Has Won
Creation Stirs Behind The Veil Of Time
Bringing Forth A New Era That Of Mankind
Though But An Ember In Natures Fires
None Has Such Strange Whims And Desires
The Candle Flickers, The Flame Dies
The Innocent Child Softly Sighs
Knowing No Shadows In Life's Light
Free From The Darkness Of Human Plight
Delicate In Thought Like Threads Of Silk
Weaved And Adorned With Gaia's Milk
Purity Of Spirit Is What Was Meant To Be
And Such A Child Shall Live For Eternity

As I watched The Birth Of Dawn
Softness And Beauty Of Stars Had Past
My Heart Still Heavy And Forlorn
My Spirit Was Ebbing I was About To Go
When Something Caught My Eye
A Solitary Cloud So Pure And White
Appeared From Way Up High
My Eyes Now Ember With Rising Sun
Saw An Amazing Sight
Within Its Fleece A Golden Glow
And A Butterfly Took Flight
Such Beauty I Had Never Seen
It Sat Upon My Hand
And Said To Me In A Voice So Soft
I Was A Spirit Of The Lamb
My Soul Was Open My Heart Poured Forth
It Listened With Silent Embrace
And When I Had Finished It Smiled At Me
With Serenity, Peace And Grace
Moments Of Silence As We Shared The Dawn
Then It Whispered It Was Time To Part
And As It Began To Fly Away
A Sudden Lightness Filled My Heart
I Watched In Joy As My Newfound Friend
Returned From Whence It Came
My Fears And Sorrows All Had Been Taken
By The Butterfly With No Name
Had I Seen The Truth Within The Cloud
I Would Have Witnessed A Wondrous Sight

Emotions Now Shattered Like An Old Broken Toy
Confused And Dazed, Wondering Why
Soul In A Turmoil Just Wishing To Die
The Brightest Day Now Shadows Of Night
Infecting The Heart So It Sees No Light
Thoughts Entombed By What's Been Said
A Loved One Lost At Twilights Ebb
Guided By One Whose Words They Believe
Not Seeing The Venom That Flowed To Deceive
The Only Hope Now Is To Pray To The Light
To Guide Them Back To All That Is Right.

Why did he save me, knowing he would die?
I should have helped him,
I shouldn't have left his side.
But he gave his life for me,
A coward afraid to die.
Would I have done the same in his place?
Just for the sake of survival?
This was a hopeless battle, we lost everything.
Yet he still had hope, hope to save the kingdom.
But when it was lost, I saw his eyes turn dark.
He lost everything he cared for, yet he kept on fighting.
He no longer valued life, and saw that I did.
He dove into the enemy, signalling to me.
"Run," He shouted, "Run as fast as you can."
I did, but I was caught by the enemy.
They took me prisoner, and I was executed.
But the last thing I remembered,
My last thought,
Was the chance he gave me,
Even though it was for naught.

Lab technician, Julie White jogged down the polished white corridor of the Orcus research laboratory carrying a tray full of test tubes and the all important health report of experiment "Heartbeat". She pushed open the door to the main lab, chest heaving slightly due to her lack of exercise. Professor Antitheus turned sharply at her entrance holding his hand out impatiently for the results she carried. She passed them over, inwardly sighing as he snatched them from her hand, tearing the envelope open with an eagerness Julie hadn't seen in years.
"Although not ethically or morally sound, experiment Heartbeat shows a sure sign of development, there has been an increase in brain activity and all of the internal organs appear to be fully healthy and able to support the experiment. It is with my professional opinion rather than my personal feelings that I confirm the experiment is now feasible to complete." Antitheus muttered before his mouth turned upwards into a snee

Silver Rain was the Hallmark of towns. Everything about it had the ability to make you feel safe, secure, and clean. Situated in green valleys of California, Silver Rain had one of the lowest crime rates in the entire state. And if that didn't assure you, it also contained a population of 32,000 white people with a smidgen of non-whites. It was the final destination for people who desired a retirement community under the maple leaves of Paradise.
And it was also the Fiery Pits of a Hellhole for someone like me.
Now it wasn't that I didn't think it wasn't a nice and peaceful town, which was an understatement by the extreme, but rather this place held me down under a suffocating clutch of mental imprisonment. I felt so detached from those who considered each other as Family while I stood on the sidelines, invisibly labeled as the outsider. The Others never understood the disadvantage of anything in their conscious beings, having their lives already mapped out by the
Awakening PrologueTry as she might, her mental calls for help went unanswered. She ran into the chipped stone walled garden that she was in when she felt his presence within the outer walls. Flowers littered the grass around the center of the garden shrine. She knelt down next to the small pond that housed the stone shrine of Nature and Sun. The lone willow tree cast its shadow over her praying form. Saria could feel him approaching; but no one stopping his trek through the compound. The water remained as calm as it had ever been.Awakening Prologue2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Nature and Sun hear my prayers," Saria said sadly as she stared at the wall surrounding the garden, "I am sorry for bringing this about a generation early. El'lyawen should have been Thalea's daughter not mine."
"I am sorry for breaking the laws that my kind has kept sacred since your last descent," Saria said as slow tears fell, "but El'lyawen is needed now. Evil is making its return to this world quicker than normal."

Mother Has LearnedSamus shot open the door leading to her final foe's lair. The darkness of Tourian had forced her into activating her night visor, and in each room, whatever light remained from the last faded more and more. Here, though, it was brighter, and Samus could feel, not only see, why. The narrow but tall and also deep hallway was shaking tremendously, and an orange glow was creeping up the walls. She looked down and noticed that she was standing on a platform above the actual ground, and that rising up to her platform was a pool of lava. When she looked up, she saw rinkas, a type of security system that shot ring shaped, plasma encased, artificial organisms at intruders, flying toward her. They were much like white blood cells, except that they could not change directions once they were fired. But they could penetrate walls, so there was no hiding from them. In addition, there were also laser cannons lining the high ceiling that Samus could not destroy. Luckily their aim was faulty, and theyMother Has Learned2 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
The Xavier: PrologueThe Xavier, a standard Obsidian Class Luna Destroyer- one of the most powerful starships in the Syrunese People's Interstellar Fleet; a fleet built by the people, for the people- be it defence or otherwise.

"Sir, by your orders am I clear to depart the bridge sir?"
"Of course Lieutenant, just make sure you're on the morning watch in time for orders from the Axion."
"Not a minute past 0700 sir."
As Lt. Feliss left the bridge via the Command deck's Solenoid lift, her spots glowed a deep shade of green; usually seen when an Aerolite is excited to some degree- the depth of the shade of the colour indicates the strength of the emotion. Lt.

A Daddy fox, Mommy fox, and Baby fox sat together with pudgy arms outstretched and pink mouths opened in soundless voicing of the greeting, Please Wipe Your Paws! The August heat licked at the single scoop of vanilla ice cream he held. He aimed the point of the cone over the spot between Baby's eyes.

Red Fox answered the door wearing a black short-sleeved shirt, a simple red skirt, and a scowl. Her copper face was untouched by makeup and her long black hair looked like it could use a quick brushing. If she were any other woman Coyote would suspect part

Khet - Chapter 1
A shallow breath shuddered past small, full lips, and tiny beads of muddy water dripped from the tiny chin below. A cool morning breeze swept down the steep valley walls, stirring silken strands of hair the color of aged barley. I was not yet the age to bear children the first time I met Leander, though those days were not long off. A dozen summers had come and gone in my lifetime, seasons spent helping my mother and sisters plant the newly green stalks of rice in the terraced hills of our valley. My small hands were scarred and calloused with a lifetime of hard labor, and in that moment, I held dearly to the bright green grasses in them.
I had no name none of my people did. I was simply daughter to my mother, sister to my siblings child to my tribe. We were the Ihtroken, the people of the great valley. Life was simple here. I understood at that age the three things that were important in my life; community, survival, and worship. This i

Prologue: A picture is worth a thousand words...
Just off the Gulf of Mexico Mrs. Waverly was peeling the skin from a boiled shrimp she had bought at the market that morning. The steam had begun to rise in her quaint kitchen and she had raised all of her windows to thin the air. The smells of the sea rushed into her house, mixing with the hydrangeas and lavender she had planted outside.
She inhaled deeply and strolled into the living room, wiping her hands on a damp rag. Mrs. Waverly stopped just in front of the bay window facing the ocean basin. Off in the distance she could see the docks and a few fishing boats barely returning from their day's work. She pressed her fingertips against the glass and smiled warmly as the small heads of her children bobbed across a hill of murky white sand.
Mrs. Waverly waved to them generously as they held up their toy buckets in triumph. The face of her eight year-old son was smug and confident while her four-year old daughter's was f

and be the woman I've dreamed I would be.
It does mean leaving behind all I know,
wiping the black board that is my life totally clean.
It's worth it though, to throw caution to the wind.
To be spontaneous like the seasons.
To be out going like a small child would be, without worry.
To try and improve my life,
and make memories forever imprinted in my mind.
I want to fly away from here;
spread my wings and fly into the horizon.
Brushing my fingertips against the cotton candy clouds,
watching the place I come from, fade from view.

Damned soul collector
Tell me, how could you extort the life out of those shiny, brown eyes?!
I'm vividly smiling as he slowly dies
Tell me, didn't you fell a thing while giving the poisonous kiss?
I feel every beating of his heart as we are immersing in the bliss
A soul collector, destroyer of the mind,

I'll encage his ripped soul,
Just after he'll lose the self-control

Just one more blanked face
Don't kill again with your breath-taking embrace,

You know you shouldn't, but your claws are digging already in his chest,
I'm spilling his blood, the flesh I wrest
Don't collect this soul, not this time,
I must capture his soul before he captures mine,

And blowing with all their might
Through every day
And during every night
Doubt will be lost
And the past cast out
the difference is uncertin
But the winds are blowing,
The days are all the same
Stuck in our ways
Walking in the wrong direction
Feeling through this haze,
The winds of change are coming
And blowing with all their might
Though every day
and during every night
No longer will pain consume the hours,
Or the masses
For my heart is made,
And this life will never be the same
The winds of change are coming
And breathing with all their might
Taking us every night.
