LonelinessLong I've played along the plot,
On the words that friends forgot,
Never checking twice my line,
Every day spent in confine,
Long awaiting their return,
I always hoped but never learn,
Never changing words nor tone,
Every day spent on my own,
Singing out a broken creed,
Singing so I might be freed.
We Are ForerunnerIn our riches you will find,We Are Forerunner4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.

A brick removed from friendships built,
Yet still he tries to stand and fight,
Against whats wrong, and for what's right,
The walls of freedom break and fray,
But yet he fights throughout the day,
His body weak,
His mind astray,
Now comes the time that Zack must pay,
The three approach,
Their weapons aimed,
For what Zack lost,
Now something gained,
For in his Heart,
He sees Her face,
His final wish,
A simple kiss,
The bullets come,
Zack welcomes bliss.

her angel face you hold so dear
she'll find you in that darkest time
her eyes will speak sans reason, rhyme
in time you will remember things
of birds and bones and broken wings
of deadly secrets, shattered dreams
things left unsaid and silent screams
with open heart and open mind
stand in the rain and you will find
that healing lies in these things true
and to remember changes you

They were returning from their prison on onyx
They had been through hell and back again
And the war was finally over
So now they could return to earth and see 117
The landed near a small memorial
It had photos many of soldiers who died
For the sake of humanity in the final assault
They were sad to see many familiar faces
One of them was 117 old cohorts
Sgt. A.J. Johnson was on the memorial
They also saw their old friends daughter
Capt. Miranda Keys was on the memorial
The 18 of them stood at attention
And paid their respects
They then began searching for 117
He was nowhere to be found
They returned to the memorial
Wondering were he could
It was then that ghostly figures emerged
Each one was a friend or enemy of 117
Zuka Zamame and YapYap stared emotionless
Sam, Kurt, James and many other Spartans also stared
Two disfigured and zombie like soldiers stared as well
They were Pvt. Wallace A. Jenkins and Captain Jacob Keyes
A giant octopus/zombie like creature also stared at this

Let me explain.
They call me insane.
Ludicrous. Crazy. Deranged.
But I must argue that isn't everyone too?
The man on the street? The girl at the park? The mail man?
A hundred years ago, people who dreamed of technology we have today,
A super computer. Satellites. People on Mars.
Was thought to be impossible.
Inconceivable. Unbelievable. Unrealistic.
A thousand years ago such things as
Canons. Cars. Space shuttles.
Were things said by the crazy.
Delusional. Upset. Mental.
And yet here we are today with all these things that were said to be unimaginable.
Unattainable. Futile. Hopeless.
So does that not mean that we are all indeed bizarre in our own way?
Demented? Mad? Psychotic?
Who are you to call me strange?
The Mayor? The President? Dictator?
It doesn't matter for we are all human in the end.
Flesh and blood. People. Civilization.
So lock me up for my point of view why don't you?

The chime pierced the silence of the flag officer's quarters aboard the Alliance battleship Kilimanjaro, and Vice Admiral Harriet Spencer's azul eyes opened begrudgingly before the chime called again. Sighing, the five foot nine woman rolled to her side and glanced up at the communication panel at her bedside, tapping the glowing accept key and designating voice only. After all, it wasn't right for an admiral to talk to her subordinates while half naked.
"Spencer, go ahead." She said and noted the grogginess of her own voice as she checked the time. Zero two hundred. No wonder she felt like she had just fallen off a sunderhorse.
"Admiral, I don't mean to wake you but we have a situation." Spencer quirked an eyebrow at the voice on the other end. It was Captain Kuritz, Kilimanjaro's CO who, like Spencer,

The Fog cleared. After 900,000 years of waiting for someone to find me, the fog that stopped me finally clears.
My name is Tamerai; well at least I think it is. That is all except a few numbers, which are my other names. I am the last of my race, for all the others are dead or mutilated horribly into the Flood, which I will not speak of because it brings back too many memories, which Id rather forget. My eyes are the darkest of greens, my hair is brown and short, and the rest I do not remember.
I open my eyes; a bright light blinds me, I slam my eyes shut again. Slowly I bring my eyes back out of the darkness. Weird creatures stare down at me. They look like me, but different all the same. No, they were different. The heads were smaller and the nose is larger.
Welcome back, its about time somebody found us, said a voice in my head. It was Zeta, my AI who will always be with me. A hacker of every computer, master of eve

As the stab wounds heal and turn to scars
I come to realize all the pain you've left
Sometimes I still feel the knife in my back
And as these old wounds are ripped open
I know I'll never be well till you're gone
Leaving you will allow my healing
Leaving you will allow me to grow
Someday you'll only be a memory

did you hear me?
You are not alone!
It is not your fault,
It isn't, hey, DID YOU HEAR ME?
Are you listening?
There is hope!
There is love,
Happiness is a choice
but you have to try to overcome the pain first,
you have to decide that whoever hurt you is not worth your anger
That you WILL NOT let them control your life or emotions
That you are stronger than they are
BECAUSE YOU ARE A BETTER PERSON
Because you are loved
Because you would never hurt someone the way you have been hurt
You are hope,
It's there, I can see it in you.
I can feel it in your words and yes,
even in your pain.
I know that you can do it
It isn't easy, but you are not alone,
The hurt rise up to protect each other,
from distances unmeasured and with power unseen,
we are the hurt, the victims
once hopeless, now an army,
a support to help people like us
to break through the barriers that numb us,
that make us hurt us when we don't deserve it,
that convince us that there is nothing better,
but there is
The Feeling That Doesn't ReachThe Feeling That Doesn't Reach4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That's all we are, isn't it?
We all start out the same.
In the spring, we blossom
and adjust to the life going on around us
and we are happy in our own ways.
Then the summer arrives
and we enjoy the light of the sun
filtering though the leaves,
hoping this bliss never ends.
The days grow shorter and everything starts to change.
Time passes and we can't stop it.
People start to leave,
and we never see them again.
We fall with them and try to stay entwined
but the wind carries them off
and they drift away, forever.
We try to cling to what belonged to us
as the world turns cold
but time and distance win
as the future appears before us,
slowly, quietly, taking our memories
with it as winter sets in,
with no vision of spring in sight.

take you anywhere they please
hold tight, it's about to take you under
why even try to breath?
just let it reach you one more time
before you start to leave
This will be the song of a lifetime
let the beat tear open your heart
we live by the smash of a drum
we breathe at the strum of each guitar
just let the song capture you
as soon as the first verse starts
This is how we get out
from under every watchful eye
we take one look at the crowd
than close our eyes and dive
we let the music pull us down
and tear apart our minds
I know you've got to feel this
the beat running through your veins
I can see it in your eyes
it's the only thing keeping you sane
breathe it in a few more times
cause this song will never change
