Just relax and take deep breaths,
Count to ten and take it easy.
Death is due,
And the truth can come out.
We're both dead so no secrets now.
Yes he loves me,
And I love him too.
No point in denying
When my mind screams it's true.
So I lower my barriers and speak out.
I love you Ani and that's the truth.

Dantooine: Jedi Enclave: Council Member Meeting Room
"So, it has finally come to this," a harsh, dusty sounding voice said. The speaker, a bluish shimmering image of a human male of a venerable age, hovered motionless over the holocron projector that held the essence of what was left of him. His form was the only light here, casting a bluish glow before him that was not restricted by any corners of darkness in the circular room. "It is time the three of you begin your last quest as padawans, and take your first step in becoming full fledged Jedi Knights." He looked at each of the three figures kneeling in front of him, "I can't say you were the best of pupils...in fact, you were among the ones I had deemed as incompetent," he paused, "but, the masters have voted, and you now have a final chance to change my opinion. Go. Construct your own lightsabers. Use what you have learned, and be mindful of your surroundings.

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

We can have ourselves a proper Christmas this year.
Nothing to hurt us.
It's taken time. Lots of time.
But now everything's perfect.
My family are over for dinner,
You're determined not to use your staff,
And Obi-Wan's found time to join us.
It's Christmas bliss
With a Leia and Luke food fight!
Your Evil ShadowYour Evil Shadow2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Your face is that of evil.
A mind so lost and gone.
And somewhere in your subconscious,
Lies the one who you replaced.
Your evil shadow you never fought.
Not in his height of power.
Where he was the apprentice,
And you were just an innocent child.
But time moves on,
And deep in the force,
Lies his presence in anger and hate.
Glaring at you in your shadows.
Darth Maul's rage goes on.
Why not IchiHime?This is NOT a rant about why IchiHime sucks because I like Ichi____ or Ori____ better. This is exclusively for about my reasons why I don't think IchiHime will happen, or why it would be bad if it did.Why not IchiHime?3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Why not IchiHime?
There's a lot of reasons why I just can't ship IchiHime, in spite of Orihime's obvious "love" for Ichigo.
***The BIGGEST reason I doubt IchiHime will ever happen is because Kubo himself seems too chickenshit to have Ichigo get together with ANYONE. He doesn't want to piss anyone off by having Ichigo choose between Orihime and Rukia, even though if he had to, I'm certain he would choose Rukia because their bond is so much deeper than his bond with Orihime.***
Chances are, if it EVER comes up, Kubo will do like the writers of Macross Frontier did with Alto by having Ichigo say something stupid like "You're both my wings" and have both girls be totally okay with that for some reason. And then have a movie where Alto gets toge

OpenIf I opened my heart just like a book,Open6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
how would you see me? Would you even still look?
Would you push me away and pretend I'm not there?
Would the honest me be just too much to bear?
If I threw away caution, let it fly in the wind.
Told you my secrets let all of you in.
Would you still look at me kindly, even still care?
Would you hold my hand gently and still be there?
If I looked at you with anger and sadness or fear,
with you, knowing the reasons, still lend an ear?
If I was to cry and fall down on my face,
would you lie and say nicely it was done with some grace?
With all of my faults laid out to see,
could you accept them and love them honestly?
The price you would pay seeing me under the light,
all the imperfection's and scars no more out of sight.
If you knew me, all of me, open and whole,
would you still say you love me, with all of your soul?
Would you look at me, the same as you do,
when you think that you know me,
when I know that's not true.

I Never Should Have.I've loved you for so long,I Never Should Have.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've held all these feelings in,
My fear of losing you always stopped me,
I never planned on telling you,
Even though I wanted you to know,
You've always been in the background of my heart,
Even when there was someone else,
When you finally knew how I felt,
You kissed me,
For the first time in my life I was truly happy,
You said you had feelings for me,
But then she came back,
And now I'm lost,
What do I do now,
That you love someone else?

A Hierarchy lost in translation,
laid out before us, but so forgotten.
Lord forgive us our folly,
Such great division,
for reasons many.
To my human eyes,
the scorching history,
wayward amid all anarchy.
Fractions to masses,
to lead and wage war.
The eternal struggle,
to which we are oblivious,
but so highly involved.
Lord forgive me,
as I fear my efforts are in vain.

Aún recuerdo con alegría la hora del cuento. Mi abuela Etsuko siempre venía cada noche a contarme un cuento antes de irme a la cama. Pero eso fue años atrás. Ahora había crecido y no tenía tiempo para cuentos de hadas y leyendas. Pero, esa noche, quise saber un poco de su sabiduría.
-Abuela, necesito tu ayuda -le dije mientras que ella le pegaba un sorbo a su taza de té.
-¡Vaya, Nana! Ya hacía muchos años en los que no me pedías que yo te contara algo.
-Es que necesito entregar una leyenda de nuestro país para mañana y no se me ocurre ninguna.
-¿Con qué no te acuerdas de los cuentos que te contaba de niña?
-Sí.. pero -titubeaba- Me gustaría que me dijeras alguna... sólo recuerdo partes sueltas.
-¡Ah, que recuerdos! Ven, te contaré una que seguro que te va a gustar -dijo esbozando una sonrisa muy tierna en su arrugada cara.
Fuimos a mi habitación.

Laying in silence,
The regret on these sheets is self evident,
But not from me,
You fall asleep and I just lay there,
My thoughts race back through my memories,
I realize I've never been this happy,
What's swirling around your dreams is a mystery,
I may not see this again,
It will forever remain in my memory,
Your sleeping face is calming,
You're even smiling,
But even behind that is chaos.

The silence is deafening,
Scream at the sound,

All these things sufficate me,

Help me please,
Just wake me up,
Shatter glass nowhere to turn,
The silence is haunting,
Try to scream try to run,
Cry as I wait,
Life is death just wake me up,
Time stands still,
Darkness is here,
How long to wait,
How long to wait,
Death is near,
Wake me up,
Just wake me up,
From this nightmare......

de cambiar, de renacer, de crecer
de sentir el cambio en mi ser
y de comenzar a trazar mi caminar
Tengo miedo, y lo admito
pero hay algo que lo supera
y es la verdadera naturaleza
de las experiencias que vivo
nadie me dirá como debo vestir
cambié mis pequeños zapatos de charol
Por unso grandes de tacón
Nadie me dirá como debo vivir
Cambié mis vestidos de vuelo
por unos que me ciñen el cuerpo
Es algo dificil
tomar esas decisiones
que cambian tu vida a horrores
y que a veces no sé que decir
cual es mi camino a elegir
entre tantos retos por descubrir
y que tanto supone para ti
que será eso lo que vas a vivir
¿Que saben del mal el bien?
Para nada soy lo que ven
Solo soy una niña que cree;
que busca tan solo crecer
que busca un sitio al que pertenecer
que busca tan solo su ser

"Puss-in-Boots" CommentaryCommentary and Analysis of Puss-in-Boots from Angela Carters The Bloody Chamber"Puss-in-Boots" Commentary5 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
While at first it seems slightly strange having a story for adults told by a cat, it is this voice in Puss-in-Boots that adds to the comedy of the tale. Carter shows us, through using Puss as the narrator, that he is the predominant character, despite being a cat, and despite the fact that the love quest central to the storys subject is between his owner and Signora Panteleone. Puss demands our attention by not only being the voice of the story, but also making it as if we are listening to this story as he is putting the pieces of it together in his head by including his thoughts and humour. This in a way adds humanity to the character of Puss, in that it makes him seem more human and so we can relate to him more. He is not just a pet that gets fed and purrs occasionally, it is Puss that would pilfer the market for breakfast [and] cast his eye over any hand of cards
Not Yet A WomanNot Yet A Woman4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
In this life I'm a woman,
But I'm not yet a woman.
I'm a girl.
Just a girl,
But also a queen with a duty.
My life dictated by the situation,
A childhood gone long sacrificed.
For a life of politics,
Of providing a leader.
There is no mother or family.
I am Queen Amidala.
Not yet a woman,
No longer a child.
But one day this will end,
And I'll be a woman at last.
