My name is Joshua Rains. What I do is something that you probably wouldn't believe or understand. I hunt down the paranormal and supernatural...and I police it. Note that I do not destroy it. Destroy is a last resort. Do you believe that just because something isn't normal or isn't human it deserves death? Of course not...they are living creatures like you and I. Indeed, some are evil and, in those cases, death is the only thing you can do...but isn't that the same with any criminal?
However, I didn't always think that way. Actually, I used to be very prejudice towards the supernatural and paranormal. I was one of the most feared monster slayers in America. You didn't know my name simply because I didn't want you to...it comes with the work...but I digress. I was responsible for the merciless murders of countless creatures and spirits in my time...until one month ago. What changed my opinion and views of monsters and the supernatural? I'll tell you.
I was 19 at the time. I was young an

Lost in the Abyss
Nowhere to go.
Around the corner.
When will it end?
Where did it start?
Take the Hate.
Take the Love.
And throw it all away
Throw it all away for another day...
'Round the corner
Down the street.
Lost in the Abyss
Nowhere to go
Screaming for help
But no response.
Just the silence
The silence of the Abyss
Never to be found.
A knife in hand
Now plunged deep into the Heart.
My hands stained with the blood
The blood of my Sin
The Sin I committed
The Sin I threw into the Abyss.
So that now it may be lost....
Lost in the Abyss...

Never. Never again will he forget that moment that they shared. It was one of the best moments of his life...so far. Knuckles didn't know what was coming his way nor did he know who it involved and how dangerous his life was about to become. "Shadow..." he was gripping a blanket as he was awoken by his face hitting the new shiny hardwood floor. (Ouch!) He opened his eyes as there was a knock at his front door. He woke up completely and scrambled to get some clothes on. There was another knock at the door. Was is Shadow? And another knock came. "I'm coming!" he scrambled out of his room and into the hallway. "Hm..guess he's not home.." he said walking down the steps of Knux's porch. His ebony hair was flowing in the wind as Knuckles ran down the steps to open the door. He opened the door but nobody was there. "Shadow?" Knuckles smiled and called as he ran down the porch steps and looked left and right. But when he didn't see anyone his smile slowly faded away

Wind Whisperer - A Tale of Winds
Another owl's life
Yamin blinked. Despite his words of proposal, he was never less sure of himself or his cause and he was not at all certain of his hold upon that which he had come to consider as dear to him. Yet, with his eyes upon hers, he saw the answer in the soft glow that started to shine from her eyes as she hopped off the nest and threw herself at him, crying, "Yes. Yes, oh yes!"
As he folded his wings around her in embrace, Yamin sent a prayer of thanks to the heavens that his life was no longer vacant, that he had finally found his heart beating in her chest, and that now he had finally come to understand what it means to be happy.
It was a completely different way of life for Yamin, and indeed both owls, since that fateful day. True to his calling, he would still fly away sometimes to wherever any gust of wind would carry him but, this time, he did not have to go on his
Never Coming HomeI ran to my roomNever Coming Home4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Searchin' under my bed
For that one last letter
The last letter you sent
It said you were coming home
The very next day
But as I reread it
I knew that's not how you really meant it
I just realized
How lucky I really was that day I fell to the floor
But then you pick me up and say
I'll always be there for you in the end
I realized how lucky I was
To have you in my heart and in my mind
I sat there and thought for a while
Even though I cried
You said you got caught up in the war
That you had been fighting in since '94
It's been sixteen years that you've been away
And you come home draped in red, white, and blue on a plane
It was the night of Christmas Eve
We were all dressed black
For that sermon on that hill
That said you're never coming back

(As I always knew.)
And if your arrow of betrayal
Comes spiraling down once more,
To finish off my maiming
By your blunted tongue -
I shall not dodge the blade

But let you pierce the flesh that's left
To protect this heart of mine,
When bones do crack and shiver
Beneath the full force of your quiver,
I shall not run, but fall to where

With that sad goodbye
In the end
We're always told
That we don't understand
We're treated like we don't even know
About the war going on outside those walls
But what if I told you
Life isn't fair
But that doesn't mean it has to end in a goodbye
Would you tell me that you love me one more time
Would you tell me I'm beautiful one last time
And that I'm so special
That you're afraid to hold me
Because I might just break
Would you ask me what war we're fighting
Because it feels so much like heaven
When I'm in your arms
Would you hold me high
Twirl me around
Hug me when I'm upset
Kiss me when I'm sad
Love me when I'm gone
What if I told you
That life doesn't have to end with a goodbye
Would you hold me high
And feel the wind race through your hair
Feel my love going through your veins
And feel my heart on your heart
Would you love me forever
If I told you
Life doesn't have to end in goodbye
No it doesn't have to end
With a goodbye

I first started seeing him a little after I turned six years old. I had been sitting in my wheelchair in my back yard with a wooden board stretched out on my lap. I was using it as a desk to draw on. My pencils were in a little tin soup can and my paper was piled neatly next to them on the surface in front of me. I had been doodling suns with smiley faces and dogs playing in the grass and stick children beaming up at me for several long minutes, before I somehow sensed that I was not alone.
I had raised my head. Standing only a few feet from me, was a humanoid figure. He (I judged it to be male) was wearing a smart black business suit with a white shirt and a black tie; a white silk kerchief peeked over the edge of a breastpocket located on the left side of his chest. I had seen such suits before; my father owned one for formal occasions. His were always creased though, no matter how much you tried to iron them out. This suit however, was flawlessly wrinkle-free. It was h

I wonder why we lie
I wonder why we fight
I wonder why we die
I wonder why we think there's a light.
What if the only thing there is darkness?
I wonder why as humans
We're so ignorant.
I wonder why we all want money
I wonder why we even try
I wonder why we smile when we're not happy
And laugh when we're sad.
I wonder why I'm even writing this
I wonder why life seems to hate me.
I wonder why I'm even here.
I wonder why we always ask
I wonder why we don't just follow
Or maybe it should be the other way around.

You know, I tell myself everday,
That I'm going to change - that I'll be different.
'This isn't the same; I'm not the same,' that's what I tell myself...
As I sit in front of the computer, praying time doesn't move.
Coward, you're weak and you'll always be weak! You bloody disgrace...
I pick up some new magazine, get inspired,
'I want to be like that guy,' is what I think to myself.
I give it a try for two or three days - I quit.
Same old shit again...
Making up excuses? It's what you always do, you gutless wonder...
I try to reach out with my hands,
Seeking something, anything that I can find to help myself hold on...
But I don't find it - I just find myself,
Sinking back down into the same black swamp - I'm drowning.
Awww, what's the matter? You gonna cry, you gonna cry?
Yeah, I've hit rock bottom,
And you know what? It feels pretty damn good down here.
Nice, warm, comfortable, familiar.
No pressure, no problems - just like everb
