Flames Never DieFlames never die, for embers always live,
The spirit of a fighter, only so much can give,
Through adversity, sorrow, fear and pain,
The flame of a hero, dims in that relentless rain,
But even in the great monsoon, the flames do not die,
For one faint ember lives on,
Rescued in love before it was gone,
Nurtured with kindling of friendship and care,
Sheltered with love from fear's evil lair,
The light is small, quivering cold,
But day by day the flame blooms,
And cheerful laughter emerges from the glooms,
Still it's not quite there, not what it once was,
For once it was the flame of a spirited leader,
A fighter who could not be defeated,
In time the flames will recover,
History will say there is no other,
No leader so great, no fighter so brave,
No will so steadfast, so determined to save,
May his flames never die, and his embers always live.

trying to get away,
trying to ignore what they do,
forget about what they say.
No move I ever make,
can ever be one right,
every simple thing I say,
always starts a fight.
I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
the way I'm supposed to be,
the thing is your slowly killing me,
why can't you see?
I'd really like to run away,
where someone would understand,
to someone who could see my pain,
and gently take my hand.

"Things aren't always what they seem
You're only seeing part of me
There's more than you could ever know

I'm incomplete and I'm undone

There's so much more that's going on

Finding out that the Pokémart in Phenac city didn't have any Poké balls had not been a very welcome surprise. Then again, Ray supposed it hadn't been much of a surprise, there weren't many wild Pokémon in Orre so there wasn't any demand for Poké balls. He had to admit, if it hadn't been for Sam insisting on asking around they wouldn't have learned that the Outskirt Stand may have s

“No, I’m good,” N said quickly, waving his hand to dismiss the waiter who had offered him a drink.
He glanced back out into the large room before him, people crowding the gigantic space. Hundreds, maybe thousands had gathered for the ceremony, and what he was witnessing now was the celebration that took place afterwards.
It was a big deal when a new Champion was announced. It only happened once in a blue moon, and to be at the party was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
However N at the moment was thinking perhaps he would rather be somewhere else. Somewhere quiet, and away from her.
In all reality he wanted to be closer to her, talking to her, and celebrating with her. But he simply didn’t have the courage.
He had screwed up just about everything else in her life before t

you told me nothing.
Nothing worth knowing, anyway.
Whatever happened? Did you just get bored?
I'm not always cheery, not always interesting,

Let me get something straight with you, Unova is completely frozen.
Every blade of grass, dirt, bricks and trees were covered in ice; like a giant snow globe minus the peaceful air to it.
So don't even think for a second that we could see any green grass beneath that harsh layer of ice.
But if I could find something to change that, then I would gladly die for it to do so...Who knows? Maybe Rosa might smile genuinely if that happened.
I have no idea why we even considered thinking of travelling all the way back to Route 9, the route next to Opelucid City, even if it did have the only market that would still provide us with food and supplies despite knowing who we were. It's too risky with the newly-plasma-renovated capital mere minutes away that had an abundance of policemen and plasma grunts-- or 'The-Stupid-Ninja-Pirates' as Rosa would keep calling them.
I still can't quite wrap my head around how those idiots managed to clear the ice to mak

That little voice inside my head

Each self-inflicted cut,

nonexistent to the piercing eyes of others,
visible only in that lonely mirror reflection.

Not pretty enough,
There is not a perfect inch

Why can't I be beautiful?

Give me rest,

Just a bullet in the chest.
Every acrid breath makes sweet death,
Like the gentle touch of a lovers caress.
Let me die,

Pain and disease
Are only a tease.
Give me a place,
Where I can be free,
Where demons wont chase,
And torture me

"Are you sure that you will be alright looking after Hana?" Hue's mother asked, making the final adjustments to her hair.
"Yes, Ma'am." Rosa replied, flicking her curly bangs of her bright blue eyes.
"Rosa, I told you that you can just call me Serina!" The older woman said, looking at Rosa through the reflection of the small mirror.
"Now, how do I look?" Serina asked, turning around in a circle. She was dressed in a knee-length dress made out of a shiny silver material with a light purple sash around her waist. Her dark, redish-purple hair was straightened and left down, a rare sight to see as the busy woman hardly ever got dressed up.
"You look absolutely stunning!" Rosa squealed, grabbing the lady's bag off of the table.

Are you lonely ?
Lost within such a Labyrinthine heart,
Ruling from somewhere up so high,
Glaring down at me with those eyes
There you stand,
So opaque and obscure
With all the little pieces of us,
Twinkling in the distance,
Cannot fill the spaces between
Those that separate our hearts.
And I can't even say your name,
I wish I could just tell you
Someday I will find the strength
To say these words to you
What are you really playing at?

De ses yeux éclairés par les brumes océanes,
Déposant sur mes ailes une lueur diaphane.

Vers un profond silence dans lequel je m'immisce,
Pour écouter son cur plus grand que l'univers
M'offrir sans restriction les clés de son mystère.

And you were once lost to me...
Though I'd searched, the place was never right
Timing was off just by a few minutes,
Moments slip like grains of sand
Falling down the hourglass of my heart...
From the moment I first saw you,
I know it sounds much too bold
But I knew you'd follow me home
From there, knew one day you'd be mine
To have and to hold,
Someone who compliments me perfectly,
Going hand in hand with my own ways
And so flawlessly intuned with my soul...
For so long I had wondered
Why there was so much darkness within me,
Why I was surrounded by it
Why it consumed me so completely...
But most of all, I wondered why...
It felt like I was missing half of myself,
Like I was incomplete
And without you, I am.
Without you, there can only be dark
There is no light,
And I know it's cliche' but...
You will always be my light
Even in all of this darkness.
Two halves of one shell
Drawn to one another
From across vast distances,
