Afraid, Katrina stared down the undead woman. Panic and fear wanted to take control but Katrina wouldn't allow the emotions to dictate her actions. Slowly moving towards the woman Katrina kept her eyes locked with the other woman's eyes.
"What do you want with me? Where is the child that was with me? What have you done to the family who lays here? Answer me," spat Katrina.
With a laugh that sounded like a loud sinister echo, the decomposing woman responded, "It is none of your business young one. It is our concern and no one else's. They add to our own collective power in the netherworld. Soon we will be able to break free of our bondage and take a hold of the world of living. The little girl is the key. She will allow us to completely break free and you cannot stop us once we do."
"How dare you use such an innocent child to your own destructive means! I

It was their first Christmas together, even Thor had brought Loki with him, trying not to make him feel left out. Natasha had just come back from the last mission, a long month in the desert, so now was ready to party. Clint had helped Bruce decorate the tree, apparently Tony had ordered several "avengers' toys" to make their tree really one of a kind.
Steve had spent the last two days trying to find the perfect gifts for his friends. He had done a fairly good job, the only problem being the inventor.
What do you buy to a guy who has everything, could buy everything or invent it himself? Good, question, but now he needed a good answer as well.
Tony was still working when Jarvis reminded him of the 'White Avengers', Tony's party for this Christmas with his friends. He rose from his stool, wiped his hands clean and went upstairs to his bedroom to clean up for good. When he reached his room he found the door slightly ajar, so he peaked inside to find out what was going on. He spotted a bl

Need to connect, to connect myself,
Have to take it and insert it in my nerve system,
Need to sleep, I must sleep.
Awake, all naked, cover in blood and in a little body,
It feels real, it feels normal, but yet I know that it is abnormal,
Knowing consciously that I am asleep, but why do I feel the need to keep my eyes shut and dream?
It is so warm, so good and so comfortable,
Yet it is so dark, so hard and fragile,
This body in which from now on I will live, will be my reality till the end.
What could have happened along the process,
Can't reach out to pull it out of my nerve system,
I think I lost control, and I think I am for nevermore.

As the ground collapsed beneath the young dragon, he found himself doing the only thing he could think to do: Stay on top. He quickly lost track of his winged companion, as they both tumbled down into the gorge below.
The rock Spike was on, he clung to with all his might, refusing to let go. It wasn't long before the stone impacted the ground and shattered, knocking the wind out of him. He tumbled across the rubble that arrived before, as giant stones fell around him, and on top of him.
The two Crusaders and four recruits watched their friends fall into the gorge below, helpless to save them. It wasn't long before the ground stopped breaking apart before them. Likely stopped by the tree roots below, thought Apple Bloom.
The yellow filly squirmed out of her friend's grip, and ran to the new cliff edge, looking down into the gorge below. "I don't see them!" she cried.

November Eve -
Summer is turning,
Darkness touches the day,
Puts on her black glove.
Gone the times of abundance.
Cold covers the land,
Prepares the rebirth in spring.
Let us kindle the fires,
Dance and celebrate.
When the veils between the worlds open,
The dead will walk freely among us in this night
And the gods pay tribute
To fertility for a last time.
Let us draw the circle,
From outside walking inwards,
Break bread, empty the cup,
Ask for guidance and cognition,
Visualize the own mortality
And prepare for the new outer existence.

I see you struggling,
You have no motivation, you are fading,
You feel like you're surrounded by lies,
But I know otherwise,
I need you to think,
Let all your feelings out with ink,
I can really help you,
If you just give me the chance to,
I'm here for you and I shall always be,
You can trust me,
You can't keep on doing this to yourself,
I can't even bare the thought of being by myself,
You are beautiful, you are you,
And I love you,
So please, please don't feel bad,
You're only making me sad,
You are my friend,
And you will be until the very end,
Please feel better,
I'll be here forever.

Ch. 1: Fun With Space-Time Continuum
"I can't believe I'm skeptical that this'll work," said Tony Stark, tightening a bolt on a piece of metal paneling.
"After everything you've built," chuckled Bruce Banner with a smile, "you shouldn't be. And anyway, it's about time someone invented one of these."
Tony rolled his eyes as he straightened up, rubbing a sudden kink out of his lower back.
"Where do you get your puns, Brucey? The 'Other Guy' throw that one at you?"
Bruce didn't reply as he began typing furiously at a computer set up near the large metal container. After a few minutes, Banner spoke.
"Where should we go?" he asked in an excited tone of voice. Tony took a quick look at the doctor's eyes, making sure the neon green glow hadn't shown up. It hadn't. This was just Bruce Banner being as giddy as a schoolboy.
"Shouldn't it be when? This is a time machine after all."

To breathe the curve and then the coil,
The bulge of arm, the pull and spoil.
He levels arrow true in place
As muscles flex in rhythmic grace.
The tune and sinew of his bow
When now at last he lets it go
Towards rearing Horse Head nebulae
While I'm in awe and full entranced.
He ne'er gives me a single glance
Yet do I mind in spite the day;
It is for me that he aims high
To stay the target his first try.
With stars that set himself ablaze,
And claims the prize with self-same mark.
What legend brands his epic phrase
While 'twixt the galaxies we spark.

A Spark In The Dark
After I had met you-
I found out that hope can be so wounding
And now I know what meaningful desires can do-
The pieces of my dreams are still crumbling
You made me fade in-and-out of your Heaven
Allowing me the taste of peace momentarily
And then right back to testing my withdrawing patience
While I plunge back into my same old Hell called: vulnerability
This feeling...is too raw
A tug of war between different kinds of torment
I'm missing you...so much
The rift between us seems to be infinite
Don't go...don't leave
Don't let go...of me
But when you left me for the last time-
I knew that the wrong kind of love can be so fucking addicting
I realized that you combined my truth with your lie-
You always made your words so fucking convincing
You forced me to despise what I will never have-
As you pretended to hand me m

The sun is shining, it is already autumn.
The shadows become larger.
Soon the night comes, the sun is setting.
The stars twinkle brighter.
It is so cold and wonderful,
The moonlight is so clear tonight.
I handle my things promptly
And search my delight in the wood.
In the wood, it already can be seen
That the year will come to an end.
The leaves fall, rustle already and
The wind let them turn!
Such beautiful colours autumn has!
The light is refracted so golden!
The wood is still full of colours
And makes my heart laughing!
I am amazed at colours and also shapes
Along the paths there.
Each leave is made unique
And does not correspond to standards.
Is my life not so
That it corresponds to a standard
So here in the wood
I will get a new sight again!
Like the leaves are different,
I may be other, too
And need not fit into the screen
Of the world around me!
I am aware that I have you,
my lovely wood and you have me.
Therefore I am enjoying it anew.
We are so much interwoven!

He watched you from the shadow of a large oak. Large green eyes studying your every movement. He could never leave the forest that was his curse. No matter how much he wanted to take a few steps beyond to take hold of what he wanted he couldn't.
So for now he would wait for you.
"Mom, please let me go into the forest. I promise I'll be careful."
"No __________, it's far too dangerous," your mother fussed.
"I'm never allowed in the forest," you said, "at least tell me why."
Your mother stared at you with worried eyes. She had her reasons, but she would never tell you. If she told you, you might be tempted to go to the forest despite her warning. "Just don't go ____________. Please, it's not safe for you to go there. If anything happened to you I could never forgive myself."
All that seemed to go through one ear and out the other. Pouting you turned your eyesight to the line of trees just a half mile away.

May I never see your face again should we ever part

May I never have a love like this that makes me disappear
May the world cease to exist should this ever repeat it's self
And if it should may I cut my heart out and place it on a shelf.

Carried by death on his fiery wings.

Losing MyselfLosing MyselfLosing Myself3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I like to project that I am strong,
that no one can touch or shake me.
But all this is an elaborate mask
I wear to keep the real me locked away.
I hide my sorrow, pain and shame
beneath a mask of happiness and joy.
People saw what I wanted them to,
except for the few brave few who dared
to try to dig and uncover the real me.
The me who fights off pain day and night
and writes words on a page to keep from
putting red slshes in my arm.
I feel like a part of myself is slipping away
bit by tiny but until nothing is left
but an empty husk of the woman I was.
People see the sarcastic tone and
haughty attitudeand think I think
I'm all that. Well they are dead wrong.
That behavior hides a vast sea of pain and loss
I will not show to anyone I do not trust.
And maybe I make mistakes but I live through them
and allow my life to go on and unfold before me.

For a long time – mostly 'always' –
It is there …. the yearning
For the infinite distance
In the depth of the night.
It makes often sad and let
My glance raise
To the stars in the sky.
But where is the feeling of the unity,
The connection with everyone.
It is so far and not here any longer,
Doubts and fear come up.
The yearning for the stars –
It is growing.
But I open my heart and let in
The love for everything that is.
Then, the yearning will stop
To trouble me.
I will find again
What I thought to have lost.

Man, being created in Your image,
finds his imagination overflowing with aspiration!
To create as You create,
to build as You build.
You have made us like You,
crafters after the Crafter,
painters after the Painters,
dancers after the Dancer,
singers after the Composer Himself.
But who can compare to You, oh God?
Who can paint, with precision,
each cloud in the heavens as You have painted it?
Who can animate the beauty,
bringing every colour in Your spectrum to life
in an ever living, ever changing sky?
And who can craft a single blade of grass
with every vein, every detail;
Yet weave it together so massively,
that Your precious cloth for the earth
can be witnessed from the heavens themselves!
Who knits the fragrant petals of flowers to their stalks,
and makes there the womb of which precious honey is born,
and with which none of man's sugar can compare?
Indeed: This is not the work of man!

Why are we so jealous of what others possess?

Why do we ruthlessly throw away other beings lives for our own personal and selfish reasons?

At a time, when humans still believed in faeries and elves, they possessed power. A power of which they were not conscious. They created what they thought and only by their will-power the fabulous creatures of their fantasies came to life. So it happened that the lonely dark woods were suddenly populated by gentle wood spirits. Delicate elves, dainty nymphs, graceful little fairies swinging themselves from branch to branch left sparkling stardust on their ways. A wonderful mystical world was arisen und its habitants were just waiting for assisting humanity. Those who were desperate and sad could call them and they always came to help. Then it happened that the humans forgot the magical realm and a dark age began.
The humans had forgotten that they only need to believe for to see. Those who were desperate stayed alone and those being worried found no comfort any longer. The elven realm existed further on but it fell into oblivion. Humanity had become blind. Hundreds of years pass
