New Best FriendI met a new best friend today,New Best Friend8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
We never ran out of things to say.
It seems I have known her my whole life.
We chatted about life's constant strife.
I told her all my lost hopes, broken dreams,
She has been there too, It seems.
She listens quietly, I love her so much,
And my heart she managed to see and touch.
We stand there, choked up and crying,
Then I found out I was lying.
I reach out to draw her near,
It hits me that my best friend is only a mirror..
Assassin's RemorseShe wiped her dagger clean, and sheathed it. The man was innocent, but the job paid well. She pushed a loose strand of curly brown hair back behind her ear and adjusted her jacket. Rummaging in her pockets she pulled out a velvety, dark blue piece of paper. She placed it on the man's chest, making sure that there were no blood stains on it. She took a step back, turned around and walked towards the front door of the house.Assassin's Remorse8 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

You gave your wings
So he could fly.
Yet ungrateful -
He flew away,
You begged him stay.
He speaks his words
And storms through life
He's given up
And given in,
As his worlds
Spins around him.
No matter what
You yell and scream
He sees you only
As a dream,
For he knows
That if he wakes
His ebbing faith
May crack and break,
And even though
You care for him
He's hated you
Since the beginning.
At least, he claims
That that is true,
But really he
Just misses you.
He is scared
To face belief
And love, because

On the ground lay bloody feathers
A war that tore a family apart
heavenly being you fell too far.
the hands that carved your wings strikes you down
why such hate for these beings that your brothers protect?
is it because they bleed and kill in your father's name?
Sitting in a forsaken palace your hate grows,
for jealousy consumes even the most pure of heart
why does your face twist from pain and anger?
You were once beautiful as the sun itself.
But now in this hot paradise of evil you rot and turn cold
Beautiful creature look how far you've fallen,

Creatures of darkest shadow and shapeless form,
Which come to me on the eve of this wicked storm.
Be they messengers from the realm of the dead,
These beings that fill my heart with such dread?
They crowd my chamber in a haphazard swarm,
Their presence disturbing yet somehow quite warm.
"Are you all truly here, or are you only in my head?"
Said they, "We are souls from a world beyond,
We inspire, we heal, and we mean you no harm."
As I lay dying there they filled my soul with song,
And of those shadows I grew quite fond,
For I found they had a certain otherworldly charm.

Ghostly revelation now begun,
Smell the fires of burning glory,
A third testament written with a twisted story.
Oh can you hear the angels sing?
Their shrieks of pain from fiery winds,
And can you hear the demons cry,
Lights from heaven now blinds their eyes.
The hands of the lord are not so forgiving,
To weak to break this sinful living,
The wars of ages still raging on,
In a world where peace does not belong,
With hell on earth and fire in sky,
Lay down your weapons and watch life die..

He no longer prays
For he no longer cares.
Wanted or unwanted;
You'll never see him there.
The dullness of the moment

His never-ending story
Has nowhere to begin.
And that gateway to heaven?
He's convinced he's seen it:
Claims his mind and his body
From the heart of the pit.

Through the sky
On frostbitten wings,
The blissful days
When his brother would sing.
On distant lullabies
He wishes to forget.
All of his losses
Tangle in the melody
But were they worth it?
He shamelessly begs,
Not God, but the stars
For just one more chance.
But his pleas go unanswered
For he's lost all hope
In this everlasting dance.

Info: Cryos are my versions of ice dragons. Simple as that.
Habitat: Cyros prefer subzero climates, especially in areas filled with ice and snow. They greatly dislike warm areas. So much that they will freeze an area to suit their needs.
Special Traits: Cryos have traits that indicate ice powers in many ways. Their talons, wings, horns, and tail spades have an ice-like texture, and are the sharpest among dragons, next to dwellers. Their ice powers are very deadly. The ice can resist temperatures of up to 400 degrees. Very little opposition can generate a temperature higher than that. But despite their cold nature,

Variety had returned to her apartment, exhausted from the fight against Coral, and was looking for relaxation time. She had invited Lauren and CopyCat to join her, but the two had to do some business before they could join her.
Variety had also given Gothica a call about the situation with the giant snake that was in Coral's possession. Gothica informed her that any information on such a creature could be found, but it would take time.
Upon entering her apartment, Variety was seized in a strong bear hug by Jaxx, her husband. Variety wrapped her arms around his neck and her legs around his waist.

To get by in this life
Owning just the ground I stand on
In hand, the bread and knife
Like the knife, a bootleg sharpness
Does prove quite effective
You'd never expect it be in
Any way productive
And yet, it stands the rusty dust
Of time and beyond that
Lies the end goal, a simple task
For this tool stirs the vat
That very vat, holding the blood
Of my letting, my pain
Fire to perfect boiling heat
But that a mind insane
A passionate fire leaking
Liquid of no flavor
But rest assured, 'tis edible
As any meal before
It's all this servant can offer
From himself to barter

Her long slender fingers gripped the clear plastic piping bag, the contents inside oozed out slowly reflecting the amount of pressure she applied. On a baking pan lined with parchment paper she carefully drew designs with the melted chocolate. Her light grey eyes, downcast, were fixated on the current task. To the untrained eye the final product was nothing but mere dark brown squiggles, but she knew their purpose and was excited with the outcome. Using the back of her hand she wiped her forehead, strands of jet black hair escaping from her chef beret. She smiled proudly and lifted the pan placing it in the freezer to allow

My life has crashed,
You do not know what you have done.
You destroyed my future,
You destroyed my hopes,
I am tied by love’s ropes,
I cannot read, I cannot write,
I am just staring at the sky, consumed by night.
Instead of a future I see frontiers,
I see people for me dropping tears.
What has happened knows no one but me,
My demise is near and that I see.
Everything is because of your beauty,
For you I had to throw away my duty!
No one tried me to understand,
That I wanted my heart from you unhand!
I tried to turn to ashes your image in my mind,
I wanted to leave everything behind,
Oh, how I’d wished that day to go blind.
How I’d wished to abide this curse,
But I’m incurable, it gets only worse!

It's easy to cry when everyone you love will reject you or die.
What will it take to make you admit that you were wrong?
I'm not some weak play thing-- I'm more than strong.
I've had time and I've had change,
But still I can't explain our June in the rain.
Oh the thunder we'd make would have no sound at all,
But it would rise, it would crash, and collide as we fall.
You've been pulling out the nails that hold up everything you've known,
Now there's not a god damn thing left to be shown.
Sure, I was early to finish, but I was late to start.
You broke me-- I might be an adult, but I'm a kid at heart.
Inside it drives me crazy, I try to act like shit don't phase me,
When really you had me sinking, drowning in my insecurities.

We will be awake when you need us

In the noisy bar of the Guild, a lone man could be seen sitting at a table in a corner. His black hair was pulled back in a ponytail, revealing the metalic radiance of the earrings piercing his ear all while his naked chest was showing underneath his long coat.
Fallon walked towards him with confident steps and a sigh of relief.
"Hi." she greeted and sat herself on the cold seat next to him, assuming he was there alone.
"Hi..." Ragnor greeted back.
She rubbed her neck with a grunt as Ragnor resumed checking out the single ladies in the bar. He had stopped trying to flirt with her once he realized her interes in a certain man, an
