Snared there for eternity
Without an ounce of light inside me.
Farewell, all my former friends.
It wrecked and tore me inside,
I can't even walk anymore
I can't live no more
My fate is awfully decided.
My heart is pounding.
My hands are shaking.
Still, why is it so hard?
To end my life.

Why did the roads of our destiny cross? No one knows. Hell is waiting for me, since the Gods made me taste paradise. There is no weak words to describe her ; pejorative becomes meliorative, this embittered perfection of her face reminds me those delightful paintings of Goddesses.
If Beauty and Charm melt into a being, this very abject being would suffer of her heavenly presence.
This infinity of sensations in her gaze, make feel and shudder of everything best this world offers.
Alike a luminary with a human face: only needing to be to shine brightly, no one can touch her, inaccessible.
Faint men would fight ; I would fight, slay, die, just to feel her breath.
Such misfortune for the inept man who, goofy, dullard, can only think about one thing.
Such fortune yet that the only thing I think about is Her.

"...I already know."
He was holding his heavy head
Full of shame and lies instead
Tears wanted to flee but were stuck
His body motionless as a trunk
"You hurt her terribly this time, you silly moron."
"...Oh shut your mouth."
"She was kind and blind enough to love you, and yet..."
Slowly realizing what he has done
This petty mind was torn
From any sane mental state he flew
Painfully raising the head anew
"...You're pissing me off."
"And yet, you screwed everything she has brought you."
"...Stop talking, you piece of trash."
The gaze abnormally empty
Darkness surrounding him as a krone
World has become hostile so quickly
In his dreary room, alone
"...I should really stop talking to myself."
That summer nightSitting amid the silky sand grainsThat summer night6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
that glisten under the silver moonlight;
contemplating the forth worlds above,
I yearn to comprehend the eerie language -
of those forever-glittering gazing eyes.
The bittersweet northern wind rustles
blowing to me the spray of the mild sea;
I shiver, and then,
breathe in the most exquisite smell;
and along their melody my heart merrily leaps
Among so poetic atmosphere, a comet shines:
lighting up the horizon,
enthralling my soul, and mesmerising my mind,
as it sweeps the sky with its luminous tail -
of magical golden dust, and sparkling water drips.
To my feet I shift my weight to bid
my farewells to the transient guest as
it exists the scene;
drooping my eyelids, drowning in a trance,
I make my wish:
'May all the years' nights be as -
fabulous as this summer's splendid one'

Violin notes whistle through dried branches,
Puddles - eager redbreasts moisten their throat.
Vast painting of the poet's dreams!
I hear; siren's melody baits lost souls from the wood,
The misty air is loaded by scents of dews,
Tremendous land of dead leaves, out of sight! Swimming peacefully,
White waterlily feels the dragonfly scratching its back.
Trees' woody eyes are pointing at the sapphire surface,
I stare at polychromatic clouds, leaving the heavenly throne.
And from her very breath, she blows them off. Lady of the Lake.
Condescending Nature! Your cruelty is matched your greatness.
Natural, hazy shivers flow through my bloodstream,
There, there she looked at me! Lady of the Lake!

Laughing out loud
What's wrong with this hysterical crowd?
Looks like I was left out, threw
My heart's petals have faded
No souls by my side
Deeper and deeper into agony
Loneliness has become heavy
This blade I hold
Will shed my blood instead
Do I target the proper enemy?
Why should I use it against ME?
Are you serious? All of YOU
Laughing at ME? Miserable amused faces
You should reconsider it anew
Before I tear you to pieces
You'll know the meaning of pain
It'll become your best mate
My tears wouldn't have been vain
I'll destroy all of you without any regret

"Yes, I can't seem to find Shepard anywhere. You know where he is?"
"I believe your boyfriend is in the cargo hold doing his Biotic routine." Tali jumped a little at the boyfriend comment. This only made Jacob laugh. "Well, go ahead."
Tali made her way to the elevator, blushing at the comment. The elevator took several minutes before the doors opened at the cargo deck. She gasped at the sight. Dark energy surrounded Shepard as he lifted half a dozen crates. They moved through the air slowly. One by one they were placed on the ground. Shepard placed three of them side-by-side. He then placed two on top of the three, side-by-side. The final crate was placed at the top. The dark energy that surrounded Shepard dissipated.
"That was incredible, Shepard," Tali finally mustered.
Shepard turned around and smiled. He was breathing heavily f

Both he, Tali, Liara, Ashley, Vega, Javik and Joker stood in front of the memorial wall. They had just placed EDI's and Anderson's name up on the wall. The only name left to add was Shepard's. Garrus placed a hand on her shoulder.
"No," she said sternly. "I'm not ready to give up on him." Tali walked away from the memorial wall. "We need to get back to earth as soon as possible. Shepard will need our help."
The elevator door opened and she went inside. The doors closed. The others looked at each other and shook their heads.
"She's still not ready to accept it," Liara said.
"I'm not sure, I'm ready to accept it," Vega said. "I mean it's Commander Shepard! He already died once already."
"But he was at the epicenter of the energy wave," Ash said.

"You seem to be attracting unwanted attention, Tali," he said matter-of-factly. "Several passerbys were staring at you."
Tali hated Garrus pointing this out.
"Many think less of the Quarians for traveling in the Flotilla and for creating the Geth," she sighed. Tali wished this idiot would shut the hell up. For the first time since she left the Flotilla, she was treated as a person instead of a second-class citizen. Mostly thanks to Shepard.
"The Quarians endangered the entire galaxy when they let the Geth break free," Garrus countered. "I hope your people are properly contrite. Tali."
Was he trying to to cause conflict? "As the Turians are properly contrite for releasing the genophage upon the Krogan?"

This takes place a few weeks, possibly a month, after the destruction of Sovereign.
Exiting out of the CIC, Garrus Vakarian strolled down the stairwell toward the living quarters of the SSV Normandy. The celebration that had followed the defeat of Sovereign was going on all throughout the Citadelthroughout the parts that remained relatively intact, that is. He was all for revelry after the hell he and his commanding officer had gone through, but it had turned out to be livelier than he preferred. He noticed how empty the ship felt, especially with the looming silence in the air. His mind began to wander to the faces he had seen at the celebration. All the crew from this ship, the people he knew from C-Sec, high ranking officials he had investigated, ev

Ashley Williams walked towards the Embassy lounge. The knowledge of Shepard's victory lingered in her head. Just a few days ago Councilor Anderson notified her of Shepard's victory over the Collector's and his betrayal of Cerberus. She felt like an idiot. Even more so when she learned that Garrus, Tali, Joker and Chakwas joined him in his mission. Why did she say those things on Horizon?
Of course she probably screwed up any chance to be with him. She grew fond of him during their mission to take down Saren, but he didn't seem to express the same interest. She always assumed he had a thing with Liara. Or so the rumors went. Maybe she now has the opportunity to find out. Though there was a whole new rumor about who he was with, but it was too crazy to be true.
Ash entered the lounge. It was pretty empty. It only took a quick scan to see Shepard's table. With him were Tali and Garrus. Ash cringed. It was almost like fate was rubbing
Normandy Crash siteThe shuttle touched down on Alchera. The area was covered in blankets of white snow. Chucks of the Normandy was skewed all over the place. Shepard stepped out of the shuttle and saw the grave of his old ship, the Normandy. He walked forward towards some wreckage in the distance. Something glinted in the snow next to some rocks. Shepard walked over to find some dog tags. The tags fumbled around in his hand. He contemplated the object. Each tag would be a life that was lost on that day. A life that isn't going to be brought back thanks to some secret project. Lives that will stay dead. He read the name: Negulesco, Monica. Someone he failed.Normandy Crash site4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
"I'm sorry," he sadly whispered.
Monica was part of the Normandy's security. He only spoke to her a few times, but never really got to know her.
Shepard walked over to the wreckage to see that it was the cockpit. Another glint to the right caught his eye. He walked over and found another dog tag.

Welcome to Summoner's Rift
The vision was clear, Orianna was in the summoner platform, a circular stone base, with arcane symbols underneath her feet and stone steps down that led the way into the field. The sky had a few clouds and the breeze that came from the woods surrounding the battlefield contained something magical within, after all, the field was built in a place where the magical forces had more strength, and where magical battles of untold proportions where fought during the previous Runewars. Turning her head left, she could observe at close range there was the shop keeper, ready to serve the champions of the league, a small being, with an abundant yellowish beard that could almost touch the ground, and in its back, a tiny bag filled with equipment that seemed to be falling from it. It was curious to some of them, having participated in both sides of the battlefield, how the shop keepers looked identical, perhaps twin brothers. Following the sight to the right down the step

His parents didnt allow anyone to come over, because he had gotten a bad grade in the math-test a few days ago. Simon sighed. I know that I just had a bad day I mean, this can happen to everybody Or not? Oh damn, why are my parents so complicated
After studying for his next test, which he had finished very fast, since hes actually a very good student, he sneaked out of his room. His parents were watching a TV show, so there was no possibility that theyd come upstairs and check onto him.

Of different colors and designs;

And yet you still have the balls to say that?

But that's okay; I'm used to no one listening.

The Peace Seeker
Whispers that no one hears
The world is deaf from despair
The sun becomes my throne
As I watch reality become undone
Someone can be another person's hero
If only love existed
Dusk will break with a darker tomorrow
Another day of being two-faced
Every second- a promise is broken
Every minute- a tear is taken
Every hour- a smile is forced
Every day- a child is born
I stitch my mouth shut / I finally had enough
Silence is my sin / Truth is my friend
Seal my eyes wide / Lies can finally hide
I will witness no evil / I will force another smile
Anyone can be someone's demon
Because greed insists it
Peace is not real to a planet of villains
Needs cannot be resisted
Every chance- wrongs replace rights
Every opportunity- delusions will ignite
Every wish- is for more of the same
Every hope- is for someone else to blame
Screams that will echo on
The voices of war will succumb
The moon becomes my beacon
As I await for the answers I'm seeking
