war has been brewingwar has been brewing6 months ago in Profiles More Like This
After a long period of peace it seemed war had been brewing. Some ten years ago the largest family of the lands fell into oblivion when the heads of the family and top generals suddenly fell ill and died within a short period of time. Without their leaders and supporting fighters the herd was doomed. It didn't take long for other families and rogue groups to steal and kill most of the once vast amount of horses which were part of the Nuran. Those who did not die or join other families disappeared from the lands and weren't heard of ever since. And without any sign of the perpetrators the lands fell into complete chaos..

Where I am GoingFor now I am going back to GermanyWhere I am Going1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The Land where I am from
With flowers, fields and small towns to discover
But all that's only for a month
The next Trip will send me back to America
The land, which everyone calls the New World
But what will wait there and then is a new time
A new beginning, but also an End
My future seems as if it does not exist
Too far away to reach it
It is like a pitch black pit
I don't know where I am going
Or what I am going to do
But even that can't stop me
Because everything moves on
And so does everyone
And someday and some when I will think,
Now, that's what came of it, of that pitch black pit.
Wish I Was A WolfWish I was a wolfWish I Was A Wolf1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I wish I am
With ears, a tail, and paws
And with a muzzle, fur and claws
But what I most wish for
For something the most
Are the eyes
Amber eyes, to be exact
Sort of like mine
But with more golden, and green, and yellow
What I wish the most
Are the eyes
Wolves are my favorite animal
They are indeed
They are the child of the stars
The child of the moon
They are as fast as the wind
As strong as the bear
And as beautiful as god
God made the wolves
He made them with care
Picturing how they would look carefully
The jet black nose
The deep, intense, yet kind eyes
The sharp hearing ears
The rippling muscles
The massive tail
The long, pink tongue
The long, strong legs
The sharp, white fangs
The shiny and soft fur, like velvet
And all these things add into one, very, beautiful animal
Their voices can do various thins
Wolves howl at night
But also at day
They howl joyful howls, happy an

unter einem nackten Baum -
die letzte Erinnerung
an den goldenen Herbst.
Es kann noch nicht
den Fakt wahrnehmen,
dass die Monaten so schnell vergangen sind.
So ist die Zeit, die uns verändert,
grün und rot und gelb und grau -
alles, das konstant bleibt,
diese Änderung der Farbe.
Fliege, kleines einsames Blatt,
fliege weg mit dem Westwind,
fliege durch Regen, Nebel und Schnee,
Augenblick für mich,
Ewigkeit für dich,
keine Einsamkeit mehr,

¿Le temes a la oscuridad?
Por supuesto que le temes pero no en mi caso, que me acuño en la penumbra del ocaso.
La negrura se vuelve mi amiga, mientras tú dormías y te decías que me querías porque solo tú lo crees; yo ya he dejado de creer. No necesitaste decir palabra pues en la antología recorrida me negaba a ver la verdad de ti.
¿Acaso lo olvidaste?
De mi boca no escapan palabras pero mis ojos se vuelven jueces de todo lo que miran. Es verdad a veces fallan su juicio pero la adversidad siempre termina sentenciando lo que antes no fue reconocido.
No le temo a la oscuridad de mi

And see the world in a thousand years
Just to say I told you so
With the world in ruin,
I could say I've seen worse
Human nature's just a misery,
It never changes; the curse
That's plagued us all since birth
I'd say it were a cancer,
If only it weren't the norm.
Am I the only one
To truly question this?
Everything that's held us back?
All the reasons we're unwilling
To move forwards?
Do you too?
I find it strange that nothing in this world surprises me anymore.
That behind the walls I've built,
I can expect it all.
Honestly, I wish I didn't.

The old traditional buildings and the smells of different foods, they all seemed so familiar, but why?
"We're almost there Chihiro!" Haku said as we ran up some stairs.
He seems really happy. I just wish I could return that feeling.
"Uh Haku?" I said deciding it would be best if I ask him.
"Huh what is it?" He said as he slowed to a stop.
"Um, well, how do I know you?" I asked as I placed my hand against a building trying to catch myself.

"Hey Haku, what is it exactly that you want to show me?" I asked as I looked up at Haku's face.
He frowned for a moment, then let out a relieved sigh.
"I want to show you my original home..." He said as he looked on with a serious expression.
"Your original home?"
"Yes, but it's more then that." He sighed.
More then that? What could he mean?

seeing you again.
i acted like nothing mattered,
like i didn't care.
all i could think about was you and me,
and how we used to be.
back then everything was easier,
we joked, and laughed, and teased.
we never would have thought anything would change,
but we never could have seen the way they would.
we were younger, wilder and foolish,
the world was ours and we knew it.
too bad everything changed.
between the months of silence,
the halfhearted calls and texts,
something snapped in both of us.
our will to care maybe,
or maybe it was the love we shared.
the calls stopped, and the texts did

red faced and nearly crying.
Just laughing so damn hard.
People will look at me,
Say, "It wasn't that funny,"
I tell them, "I know."
And laugh some more.
I can hide the pain,
and the grief,

in a small way,
in those bad jokes
that only we ever found funny.

So it grew inside.
One night I woke up,

It went away in silence,

When the waves started, entire cities fell off the grid over night. It was so methodical, so strategic that it couldnt be considered an act of nature anymore. People became afraid.

"On an Edge"
I'd like to live on the cliff's edge,
to stop my dull, wearisome, tiring dredge,
and feel the refreshment of an adrenaline rush
instead of this continuous walk through
the never-ending grey slush
that is ordinary, plain everyday.
But, I'm too afraid I'd fall off.
I'd like to feel the wind on my face
from a high, otherworldly place
and see the sea beneath me; to feel the grace
of wild, powerful torrents of crashing waves; I just crave
to see white hippocampi charging from the water's crest,
weaving though the mirage of deep cerulean and beautiful teal
that is the swelling and the peal of the fabric of the surf.

You know the saying that when you die, your life flashes before your eyes? Well right there, part of Chihiro's life flashed before her. She could remember everything: From the moment she entered the tunnel with the stone spirit, till the moment she let go of Haku's hand and ran through the grass toward her parents.
She remembered Lin, Boh, Yubaba, Kamaji, Zeniba, and the rest of her friends from the bath house. She remembered Haku; the first person she met in the Spirit World and the last person she saw from the Spirit World. Haku was the boy who saved her, the boy who had once made a promise. That boy.
