A steady beat of a marching drum.
His fingers tap the beat on my arm,
Moving the rhythm of the music.
Tonight, we lean against each other,
Lost in the moon and the sounds of the sea.
A gentle sweet melody,
Drifting us away to a place of sweet harmony.
I can feel the tide tickling my toes,
Happy in this moment
But unsure of what he's thinking.
Does he feel the way my heart is beating?
Can he hear the thoughts that are deep inside my head?
I wish there was a way to tell him how I feel,
A secret connection,
Hidden between him and I.
Soon the tide will cover the shore,
Cleaning the sand and washing the beach.
It will wipe away every trace of us,
Every proof that we were even there.
Long after the moon sets,
After the waves have swallowed everything we left behind,
I will remember this magical night,
Just you and me, under the stars,
Between HeartbeatsWe hold in our kiss what you once called the beauty of a fading dream,Between Heartbeats4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The light to what seems to be a way of desperation,
Or perhaps just one to break down my seams.
Your touch calls upon my skin waves upon waves of trembling need,
Leaving me in fear of your breath-taking little smiles,
A chance to lose my mind to this consolation of love in between.
But I'm the one who has been preaching the lack of beauty in a fading dream,
Lighting the light in making our own unfading dreams,
And to perhaps hoping to fall in love somewhere in between.

Hanabi followed after her Master hurriedly, catching up to him as he walked briskly through the halls of the Imperial Palace.
“You made her mad again.” she stated worriedly.
The Grand Inquisitor said nothing as she followed after him and so she pressed further.
“You could try being gentler.”
“Why?” he asked somberly. “It won't do her any good.”
“But it will at least show that you care!” protested Hanabi as they continued. “She thinks you've completely abandoned who you used to be!”
The Grand Inquisitor snorted in apparent amusement. “Oh? And who are you referring to?”
“Kahan.” she stated candidly.
He froze in mid-stride, coming to a stop. Hanabi stopped as well, feeling her heart race as he turned to look at her, his blue gaze boring into her silvery eyes.
“What have I told you about using that name?”
“It's who you are!” Hanabi said defiantly.

Shepard I'm PregnantDr. Chakwas looked down at Miranda lying on the bed. Miranda wondered briefly why she was here. After all, it was only a bit of sickness. But Shepard had asked her to go and find out what it was, so she had. It was early and the majority of the crew was asleep, except Dr. Chakwas. She seemed to be wide awake. Miranda envied her as she stifled a yawn. Dr. Chakwas looked down at the OSD and sighed. Miranda tried not to show the fear creeping through her.Shepard I'm Pregnant5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
"Miranda, you are not ill," she said, but Miranda noticed the look in Dr. Chakwas' eyes. "You are -- I don't quite know how to say this."
"What?" Miranda asked impatiently.
Dr. Chakwas faltered for a moment, and then said, "You are pregnant."
Miranda's mouth dropped open. I can't be. It's absurd.
She wanted to say something, but for once she was lost for words. She smiled as the realisation swept over her.
"Congratulations,"" Dr. Chakwas said with a faint smile.

He can be such a child at times.
Who is the real four year old?
Ani or Leia?
Watch him go
As the snowball fight goes on,
Leia's hits more sucessful.
She's become really strong with the force.
He's laughing with the joy
Of a thousand childhoods,
None of which he led.
But he makes up for it.
Leia is just highly critical...
Highly accurate too!
That one hit his wedding tackle!
Not that he minds really.
A yelp and a grab
And Leia's high pitch laugh.
Soon he gets her back.
And I watch as that child's grin grows.
Both happy rolling in the snow,
Sweet innocent delight after years of war.
But me and Luke are happy in the safety of the kitchen.

“It's done my Lord.” she said courteously, ever careful of Skywalker's temper.
The cybernetic dark jedi turned his deathly mask towards her, his voice an electronic crackle that sent shivers down Aira-ty's spine.
“You are lying Commandant.”
Aira-ty tensed but remained where she was, her helmet under her arm as she starred back at the black voids.
“I executed my mission sir.”
“You let the jedi go.” Skywalker snarled, coming towards her.
Aira-ty remained where she was, staring at Vader's chest defiantly.
“There were no jedi down there Skywalker, just some renegades.”

She passed a hand over her head (she thought that the hand should be shaking, but it was not, and there was more subtle fear in that then in what had produced the shaking at the start), and felt cool air where the curved tops of her soft horns should have been. A rounded plate covered her head where parts of her mind still told her the base of her montrals were. It emitted a warmth that felt to her palm like that of a datapad which has been running too long, a bright electric burn entirely unlike the unmistakable, softer glow of body heat.
She could remember battling Grievous, could remember when the viewport in his starships hallway cracked, although she did not know who had broken it. Then--she was thrown aside into freezing space th

That will never be the same;
Going through these ups and downs
Have kept me from running rounds.
I used to be someone else
The one who cared for himself,
But now i see that I have grown,
Losing colors that I have shown.
I show new ones all the time,
And it's hard to stay in line.
Trying to do what is right
Just becomes a greater fight.
I won't be someone I'm not,
If I try, I just forgot.
There will be a change in you,
For me that's hard to get through;
But when it happens to me,
It's not as easy to see.
I learn to accept these things
For I hear life always sings
A tune that will never change,
So changes will be my gauge.
If I change, I'm doing good,
And living life as I should.

The glow in my smile you say is there,
The beauty of the winter in my eyes when I look upon the lonely trees outside
And when I breathe I want to breathe in only the scent of you.
I know you love me not because of some romantic imagination of a prince charming,
With shining armor and a winning smile or all the silly love poems.
Or maybe it is the silly love poems you like..
Silly words of my heart.
I know your heart beats with the fleeting rain,
A sense of something to treasure like love,
And in my heart,
A place that could never have enough of you.

If I could write a poem to make you fall in love with me,
I would have done it the moment I met you,
The moment I felt you smile..
The time you took me with that kiss.
I always want to make the world better wherever I go,
Speak my words and strengthen every person's will.
But every time I see you it's I who couldn't speak,
And whenever you touch me my world's perfectly complete.
So maybe tomorrow I will be able to write the poem I long to write you,
Look you in the eyes and tell you how much I really want you too.
It shouldn't be that hard to say a short "I love you",
But falling in love has even taken me to a place far from complete.

Star Wars - The Weak Will Perish
The tremor that passed through Darth Sear's vessel told him that he had landed on the planets surface. He was excited. Despite the fierce battle being fought over head, he had felt the Jedi break off from the republic fleet and make his way down here. What was so important, that the republic would allow such a powerful asset to abandon them mid battle? The Sith lord wanted to find out. Mostly, he wanted to test himself against the so called might of the Jedi. He had only ever encountered the Jedi once before. A Padawan. His master had slain him with ease. Now it would be his turn. The exit ramp slowly began its descent, revealing the grey sandy surface of the planet. Darth Sear walked out into a sand storm. This was of little consequence to the Sith, considering his cybernetic eyes. He scanned his surroundings, the darkening sky lit up with the fire of battle, his dark robes violently fluttering in the wind. He f

Through miles of pain and suffering I know.
It twists and twines like a serpent's spine
It slithers through the caverns of your mind.
Your heart breaks as your body shakes
The haunting sound of laughter quakes.
Be forewarned you've only just begun
To fall like the night or rise like the sun.
The going is slow as you all may know.
The corruption is vast but does not show.
The ordeals are many among the task at hand
You fall from the wicked you couldn't withstand.
The darkness consumes and seeps its way in
It misconstrues your views and you begin to sin.
Jaded and tainted you feel no remorse
Controlled by madness you take no discourse.
The dawn breaks and illuminates the skies
It cleanses the shadows which once clouded your eyes.
The nearby cathedral bells hearken in your ear
Almost as if the rapture was here.
Your newfound strength guides you along the path
Focused and determined to smite a demons wrath.
All of the sudden a distant object grows near

To fight for the land they treasure so dear
Their loyalty is so great
Their courage is so strong
Not all will travel down this road
One that involves dignity, bravery, and strength
Some will answer and come out strong
Others will answer, but not come out alive
This is the sacrifice that they must make
Knowing that their lives are at stake
But to those that have been called to duty
They will answer and serve with their very best
Not fearing for their lives
But fighting with the strength of a thousand tigers
Willing to lay down their lives
To keep our nation free
We honor and thank all of our service men
For their nobility to stand through it all
A task that is not to be taken lightly
That involves their heart, soul, mind and strength
To be focused and alert
Doing the tasks they have been given
And to serve our nation with the utmost respect
That it has come to deserve

You remember those years ago,
Family friends and enemies so,
You sacrificed all for them.
And now many years later so,
You look in a mirror on a world,
And in the reflection,
You see yourself.
And this time you stop and think.
You ask yourself,
How did this happen?
I did I become Darth Vader?
Was it really worth it?
Sacrifice with this,
Life taken away from
You, your wife and kids.
It's impossible to believe.
The world you once protected now destroyed by you.
Burnt and broken,
Dead bodies alien eyes.
Unable to face the truth.
The monster now is you.
Deep eyes staring into space,
Fear because you defended them.
How now the table has changed.
And as you look away.
The feeling gets erased.

Dress up as witch, sneak into the bio lab where a possible cure for whatever the hell had turned the world into a crawling pieces of crap. Then Francis had come up with the lovely idea of the costume. Sure, it looked like what a witch wore. Its just she didn’t WANT to spend 5 hours crawling around on the floor like a spastic in something that could only charitably be called “Revealing”. Still, she’d made it this far. Suddenly, Zoey’s hand, slippery from hours of sweating it out, dropped the flashlight. It clattered on the floor in the suddenly very silent room. A couple of infected turn to look at her, and Zoey froze, trying not to look up. Then, she quickly slid into the witch’s normal pose, brawling her eyes out for the satisfied Infected.

Everyone writes out of insecurities of the beautiful that brings us anguish of a heartful. I believe that the more negative things we spread in this world, the darker this world will become. And if only we could learn to share in action and words of the things we should live for, then this world may just have become just a little bit better than before.Regret?4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
