Born to prove to us what she's worth
"Hit the lights," she whispers, and struts onto the stage
The crowd cheers and gasps, everyone's amazed
The young boys heart's skip many beats
They came here looking for a treat
She blows each one of them a kiss
Blink for a second and you will surely miss
The heels come off, and down comes the hair
Haunting the audience with her stare
She amazes all who see
Each perfectly sculpted hip, thigh and knee
The boys all whistle, shout and cheer
But the finale is no where near
Her smile seduces all who should glare
She starts to pull up her dress, almost there
The lads all scream because they're delighted
She licks her lips, and they all get excited
The dress comes off and that's the end of the act
Barely has her dignity still intact
A girl who's brought more than just fantasies
A goddess who leave's more than wet dreams
Her body's a voice which she expresses
And this is wh

Bruised blue violets
Tears falling to the floor
Ripped up valentine's
A necklace hanging on a broken chain
You stormed out into the pouring rain
I sat and watched you from my window
But I was silently crying 'Don't go'
I stared at the mess
The one I had started
If only I hadn't lied
And hadn't tried to hide it

Empty graves left open
Under the moons eerie light
The smell of brains is potent
Horrified Screams pierce through the air
Ghastly figures roar through the town
On destructive paths, no one knows where
Terrified beings dragged to the ground
With blood, they'll paint the morning skies
Killing everything in sight
Under the silver-lit moon, it's no surprise
The undead will win the fight
Everyone becomes a mortal foe
Civil war in the streets
If you have fear, don't let it show
The zombies plot is almost complete
Pain and agony in every shout
They ignore their merciful cries
The human race they will wipe out
An promise you can't deny
Crimson eyes wathing the wicked
The chaos is quickly spread
Murder is a plague being transmitted
As if the streets were paved in red
The population has decreased
The battle was won
Now they will return to peace
For the bloody war was done

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

"We'll be there right away, sir."
On the other side of the desk, his partner looked at him. "A homicide?"
"If only we could be so lucky," Leviner snorted, making Ellsie wince.
It was just another case of illegal dumping. Once the 'cera crew had cleared away the overgrowth of ferns, Leviner stalked his way in. "What do you see?" Ellsie called. Although the entrance to the small shed was large enough to easily accommodate Leviner, there was no way Ellsie was fitting inside. Not that it was her fault. Maiasaurs were designed to be out grazing in the fields, not solving crimes. Leviner tried desperately not to think of her as delicious, delicious cattle. If he even so much rumbled his stomach at her, she would turn him into a raptor pancake with one large foot.
Tromping over the carpet of flattened leaves, Leviner swatted a small dragonfly out of the way, deftl

"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.

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.

"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.

No wine, no wench should be my sins
No titles, land or castles I claim
To serve til I die is my aim
I am a crow, I am the gloom
For a joyful life is no room

There's no place for mockery or shame
I am the sword in the murk
I defend, when enemies lurk
I fight for the safety of the realm
To die honored is just a dream
On the wall no name is given to me
The upcoming winter is all we see
Be aware of the fact that war will come
We need all forces to defend our home

An answering ruffle of leaves does not surprise me. If it's not a squirrel then it's probably my dog out patrolling her territory for new, alien smells. A crackle of brittle twigs from the same direction must be more squirrels, and a light slosh by the edge of the pond is just another trout belly-flopping as it gulps a bug off the surface.

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!

I hear you sneak.
Footsteps behind me!
A shadow sweeps across the empty lot.
My heart beats franticly in my chest,
As I quicken my pace.
The fear takes over,
As a twig snaps!
Just a bump in the night I tell myself.
But I know better.
I feel his eyes on me!
His gaze of death.
His skin as ice,
The grin of a madman!
I have encountered this monster before.
Not even human enough to be a man.
His eyes like flamed daggers!
Digging into my flesh!
A scream escapes my lips,
As I meet his gaze.
My skin crawls,
And I become ice cold,
As he draws closer.
I cannot think! I cannot move!
The end has come,
The end of hope.
The end of dreams,
The end of life.
Innocence has lost once more,
I think as darkness surrounds me.

Thousands of Virgin Mary statues stand silently, and peacefully in the dark just beyond the hazy shadows. Evil deeds shall be done. No matter what anyone believes or doesn't believe.
Its best to understand that before you die. Or maybe as you die. The agony between life and death put a lot of things in order for me. Things like school, and my mom's work, they seemed so petty and far away. The humming of a caring person was held much closer to my heart. It was Ode to Joy. As I burst from my human cocoon.

"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.
