by Uwe Lammler
We live in tribes, where strife and envy
From the edge of history cries out for fratricide
We dream in forests with dense foliage,
In the fog and below the silence of the Rauhnacht,
We reign in legends, sung from far away,
Noone penetrates in the glow of our Sun Fire
And lately became a name our taint and reward
But even our becoming was always passion.
The wall of the Romans cut through our land,
The West and the South supported the enemy
And bought from outside with good profit
Amber and various household items made of tin,
But even the tamed in the Roman state,
Thought about renunciation and vile treachery,
Wakes up in the Cherusci the old teutonic spirit,
Varus will become the victim of the German passion.
Who doesn´t avoid horror, should be warned,
Death won´t be longer a suffering, the death will be passion,
Who stays close to the source, who gives birth to life,
Laughs at the fools who adorn shamefully themselves,
Barbar, which was meant a

A gentle smile graced her face.
"I have something for you love." She whispered.
She cupped her hands beneath her breast and stared down at them peacefully.
Before he could grow curious, a brilliant scarlet rose appeared and began to slowly bloom beneath her fingers, it's silky petals a perfect contrast to the thorns that pricked her delicate and scarred fingertips.
A small drop of blood flowed from the tip of her finger to gently land on one of the flower petals, the color of her blood meeting the rose and blending instantly.
She lifted it to her nose to inhale the exquisite aroma.
She smiled before presenting it to her lover standing wide-eyed before her.
He slowly brought his shaky hands to reach hers, affraid that if he touched her or the rose, they would shatter or dissapear.
"Don't be afraid." She tenderly assured. He nodded and took the small rose in his hands.
"Thank you..." He replied.
She stretched her hand to gently caress his cheek.
"Sorry for the blood

i see him across the room
laughing and flirting with the other girls
oh why can't i be one of them?
why must i be the dandelion in a field of roses?
i walk over and act like everything's fine
but every time he smiles
my heart skips a beat
and every time he cries
my heart breaks a little more
i know i should be happy that we're friends
but when you tell me i'm like a sister to you
it's like salt in the wound
and i know
i can never admit how i feel

Ianto brought extra blankets to work with him, which he wrapped around the coffee maker with care. Still, it spluttered and choked when Ianto tried to ease the coffee out of it. February 13. The thing had been sick for two weeks. Sighing, Ianto went to go tell Jack.
Ianto's heart nearly broke when he pulled out his stopwatch later that day. He pushed the button on top, but the hand only shivered in the cold. Ianto nestled it in the blankets next to the coffee pot, brokenhearted.
Ianto arrived bright and early the next morning, anxious about his coffee pot and stopwatch. What he saw surprised him.
The coffee pot was gurgling gleefully, while beside it the stopwatch ticked blissfully. Ianto quickly spotted what had brought about the change; someone had placed a space heater behind them. There was a note attached to it with a pink bow.
Happy Valentine's Day Ianto!

When they woke up, both of the adult Bennetts gazed sadly at the portraits we had positioned so carefully near them; but I didn't sense any shift in their romantic auras. Still, I hovered nearby, keeping my bow drawn and aimed either toward the kitchen where Liz had started on breakfast or toward the bedroom where Jim was stalling before making an appearance. My arms were starting to get tired, and there was no sign of reconciliation by the time the kids slinked in for their meal.
I was invisible, but Jamie kept looking hesitantly at Jack and Sandy as if he was unsure whether or not to greet them. Sophie, however, brightened up and clapped her hands at the sight of them, then started peeking around corners and crawling under the table.
"Soph, hon, what are you doing?" Liz asked.
"Looking for the angel," she hopped up to look on the counter then turned right to Jack with her tiny fists on her hips, "Where's the angel?"
"There's no angel, dear. Now sit do

"We have big problem, friend," North shook his head sadly.
"Families are falling apart and it's taking a toll on the children we protect," Bunny explained with difficulty, "The kids are losing hope."
"And the memories they're forming aren't nearly as happy," Tooth added.
I could see Sandy mentioning a problem with restlessness as well.
"They are hurting," tears glistened in Christmas spirit's eyes, "So they close themselves off to protect themselves. Close off to wonder, close off to happiness, close off to believing…because parents have lost love."
"You're talking about…" I swallowed the uncomfortable lump in my throat to push out the dreaded word, "…divorce?"
Everyone nodded sadly.
"And nobody can have fun during a divorce," Jack chimed in with hostility in his voice, before slamming closed the book in his hand and gliding down to join us again, "So what are you going to do about it?"
I hesitated, looking from one guardian to the next and finding a mix of

As soon as we were right in front of the youngsters, I released my invisibility magic and watched as their little mouths dropped open and eyes grew wide.
"Pretty," the boy whispered.
"Are you an angel?" the girl tugged on my skirt, and I could hear Jack suppress a snort.
I descended a few inches so that my feet finally stood on the ice, then I knelt down to be at eye level with the children, "I'm not an angel. My name is Cupid. I'm the guardian of love."
"Your eyes are purple," the girl declared, then shuffled around to touch my wings, which I unfolded for her.
"Cupid," the boy repeated in recognition, "Like the one that shoots arrows?"
I nodded and patted the bow that stuck up from behind my back, "That's me. What are your names?"
"I'm Jamie Bennett and that's my sister Sophie," he answered, then a blush spread across his face and he lowered his voice shyly, "Miss Cupid, there's a girl in my class that I want to make a Valentine for next week…"
"Oh," I smile

Remains Of A Flower
One by one
I love you so
Petal by petal
I want you to know
Second by second
I would never let you go
My sick heart clutched the surroundings on the inside
Filled with unseen love that can't make it's way to the outside
Unseen tears bide, along with these strong feelings that I try and hide
My whole body wants to just curl up every time I see you
Concealing the secrets within, I guess there's nothing else I can do
So like a human flower, the emotions I have for you just grew and grew
Never ceasing, never sleeping, never thinking of anything else
I hate this daydreaming, because I always self-consciously doubt myself
Dwelling over the fact that I never stood a chance at expressing what I really felt
One by one
I couldn't take it anymore
Petal by petal
I had to confess what I could no longer ignore
Second by second
I needed to say everything that I should've said before
But you stopped me, and didn't even give me a chance
You were like a frostbit

Peach Temptation The loudest thing the girl could hear was her footsteps. The house was in perfect condition, and reasonably priced, but she still couldn't understand why her parents wanted to live in such a large residence. She was an only child, and they were rarely ever home, so the house would be almost completely empty most of the time. They insisted that she'd be able to have parties here, but she knew no one in this strange town. The walls were dark, and most of the floors were wooden. Though she had objected leaving their old country side home, her parents didn't listen. They must have thought that the city would be good for her, that she'd meet more people. After a month of living there she still knew no one, and every day that passed made her miss her wonderful home by the lake.Peach Temptation3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Because of the mangled corpse dumped at our neighbor's house.
But you know me,
And the crazy lurking behind these eyes.
You know I can't live without a little rebellion.
So build me a bonfire to dance around,
And I'll scream at the sky, crush stars beneath my feet.
Stack the branches high, let me climb to the top
And drop the match from hands soaked in gasoline.
You thought the purple haze was just a notion
In a dream-addled brain, nothing for the sane person to bother with,
And you were right!
So what does that say about us?
We lost the world before we found ourselves. (We just had to lose it all.)
It's not that we're losers ourselves;
We'll gladly tear the guts out of those who would subdue us!
It's that this world isn't ours, never was, isn't good enough.
It's that we're always out for more, ripping chunks from the universe
With teeth sharpened on a lack of remorse.
We'll ring our eyes in ash and scare the complacent from their beds.
A Guardian's Story: Part 1 (Jack Frost x Cupid)When I was alive, I loved stories. It's one of the few characteristics I still maintain from my old self, even after all this time. I remember who I was and what I did, but I can't remember the feelings of being that girl. It's as if that life was the plot of just another book I've read - and it would have made a good book too. A pretty shepherdess maiden falls in love with a handsome young hunter in the wilds of old Britannia, but they lived under the rule of a cruel and greedy chieftain. When the hunter kills a deer from the chief's prized herd and goes into hiding, a search is conducted from house to house. Just as the hunter's hiding place is about to be discovered, the shepherdess cries out in confession, knowing full well that the punishment will be death. She spins a lie that she accidentally shot the deer with an arrow when she mistook it for a wolf coming through the thicket toward her sheep.

It is the night of all Hallow's eve, when we believe the lies we weave.
Parties continue well into the night, but it is different tonight.
At midnight, there's a sudden hush, and shadow snuffs out the light.
The dark is rising, just another lost warning.
Demons blend in, walking side by side with masked human.
All Hallow's has come, but no one knows to run.
The dark is rising, just a forgotten warning.
The dark snuffs out the light, and shall wreak havoc tonight.
All Hallow's has come, and no one remembers to run.
The dark is rising, and the precious light is falling.
All Hallow's has come, and the massacre, has begun.

"I have a fun idea!" Jack declared, jumping in front of me wearing that cocky smirk of his, "Let's see how useful those angel wings are. I'll race you to town! If I win…"
"If you win?" I cut him off, eyebrows raised in an amused smile, "You're way out of your league, kid."
North let out a rumbling laugh as he laid his large hand on the young spirit's shoulder, "I'm afraid to say Cupid is right, Jack. There is good reason why I named one of my reindeer after her. She is fastest flyer I know."
"Faster than me?" Jack's wide eyes held a mix of disbelief and admiration when he looked up at me again.
"Cool!" Jamie cried.
"The fastest I know," North answered, "but even so, best way to Jim right now is through portal, so come before it closes."
While most of me was determined to get this operation underway, I was surprised to find that a small part of me had been successfully distracted by Jack's challenge. It would be nice to beat him in a race, to prove that I really was good

As soon as we were sure that Jim's destination was his house, Jack and I put on some speed to beat him there. It only took a couple seconds of eye contact to silently establish that this was a race; and then a few moments after it had begun, the race was already over as I brought myself to a halt on the Bennett's doorstep. Jack landed behind me, laughing happily and trying to look pouty all at the same time.
"That was too short of a distance," he protested, "We have to go somewhere where I can really ride the wind."
"You still wouldn't stand a chance," I rustled my wings for emphasis, "I can ride the wind too...when I'm not in a hurry."
"This isn't over," he shook his finger at me as we passed through the door and into the house.
The instant we were inside, we caught a brief glimpse of Jamie and Sophie clambering up the stairs towards their rooms with Tooth and Sandy disappearing after them. In the dining room we could see Liz sitting alone at the table, whi

Alone, together, forever.
We can face this world together.
Hand in hand, open minded and open hearted...
As a team, we could take down anything.
Conquer the problems that challenge us,
And save the victims of life's cruel reality.
I think we could make it out there.
I'm sure of it, I'll have your back,
And you could have mine.
We'll protect each other from harm.
Forever and always.

I tried to stop thinking about what Mordcai said to me at the coffee shop, about me feeling guilty about doing those things to Eileen. I guess deep inside I MAY have some feelings for her, but not in THAT way. Wait or maybe I DO but.......AAAHHHH!! I DON'T EVEN KNOW ANYMORE!!
My brain was killing me. Arguing with myself did not help me at all. I decided to talk to Skips about this problem. Hopefully he has some spell or potion that will stop my madness and guilt.
"Hey Skips," I greeted him while he was meditating (like he does almost everyday). "I need your help with something." He opened his eyes and stood up. "Let me guess," he began. "You fell in love with Eileen and want to get over it." Was there really ever a reason to explain yourself to Skips. I'm not sure if he has supernatural powers is a crazy stalker O_O.

Everything in life.I need to hurt myself... No, you don't.Everything in life.3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
I did this... I need to hurt myself for it.
It won't go away if you do, you know it won't.
But everything in life has its consequence...
Maybe if I hurt myself, then I won't have to feel them,
Maybe it'll be consequence enough, if I'm hurt then.
Maybe she won't dump me for what I did too,
Maybe it'll be consequence enough for what I did to you.
I don't get why you're worried though...
But I dream the future, read my poetry, sometimes, I do.
And a few nights I felt a crossover, a nightmare come true,
And now I know that it has happened, because of what I did to you.
So now, I need to hurt myself, to give me a consequence,
So now, I need to fade away, and never be spoken of since.
And now, I want to hurt myself, to save myself more pain,
But all things come to an end, and it's always the same.
