A Monster's LullabyThere's something in the darkness,A Monster's Lullaby4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Something that is not quite right.
The shadows haunt beneath me
Swirling just out of my sight.
The darkness threatens to swallow,
Everything that I live for.
But it promises to hold me,
So I cant really ask for more.
The blackness is a cradle,
It wraps me warm inside.
Bring out all the monsters,
As they sing me lullabys.
They sing me:
"The monster in the mirror,
The demons in the night,
The place my heart cannot love,
Where I cannot see the light
For I know my heart is broken
But I fear to give up the fight."
Maybe monsters aren't so scary,
They are scared just like me.
They broke so long ago,
That they are numb like I want to be.
Maybe a monster's what I am,
In the mirror it's what I see.
My own reflection's scary,
Shaky and unsure what to be.
It would be so easy to give up,
And I fear that I just might.
So soon I'll sing your lullaby too,
And hide you deep into the night.
"The monster in the mirror,
The demons in the night

Hooves ground into the dirt, tails flipped back and forth anxiously, the crowds around the starting line cheered as their friends and family members of the inhabitants of the small town of Ponyville took their positions on the starting line. With the Wonderbolt cadets partaking in the race there were considerably more racers than normal but Spitfire accommodated by placing her recruits in formation behind the regular entries, much to the chagrin of Lighting Dust and Fleetfoot.
As the racers all made final stretches and readied themselves, a grey earth pony in a black and white striped shirt with a whistle made his way to side of the of the starting line and addressed everyone.
“Welcome one and all to the Running of the Leaves, I want you all to remember to have fun out there and have a safe race! Now Racers, I’d like to call your attention to Ponyville’s own little supermodel who will signal the start of the race!”

As they approached the enormous set of double doors on the far end of the hall, a sort of tension built up in the air. The doors swung open just as the septet reached it, likely opened by magic. They entered the massive throne room and were immediately greeted by two ponies unlike any Kratos had seen before.
The goddesses were graced with both wings and horns, and were larger than most other ponies. The white goddess stood taller than Kratos himself, while the deep, dark blue goddess beside her, while smaller than her sister, still held considerable power in her presence. They both radiated power, not unlike many other gods Kratos had encountered. The difference here was that there presence wasn't nearly as hostile or forebodi
Jinx Marries the NightI had never felt so low in my life, and I have enough low points to compare this moment too. The first was when I discovered I had powers. Now must people, most young children would be excited about this revelation, but not me. As soon as I figured out the origins of my power I realized my life could never be the same. It was all bad luck for me. It started with little things, accidently breaking plates or making pots on the stove boil over. Then it got worse to the point where I made every light bulb in the house explode because I wasn't allowed to go to Kindergarten with my older sister. Then my hair color began to change, fading from a dark black into a shocking bubblegum pink. My peach colored skin faded into a sickly gray and my green eyes grew pink. My parents were horrified with the changes. By the time I was seven I looked like a circus freak and could not even control the magic I possessed. But that wasn't the low, oh god no.

Dash was reared back onto her hind legs with her forelegs resting on Sonic’s shoulders as they slowly moved across the dance floor. Sonic was surprised at first, expecting her to drop a good deal of her weight onto him, but quickly realized that she stood more upright than he had thought she would and as a result, felt just the weight of her forelegs. He did feel a tad awkward however, since on four legs he stood taller than her, but once reared, she had a slight height advantage. However, he quickly got over the feeling and moved his hands to her waist, resting them just above her cutie-mark and the two had slowly began two-stepping, swaying back and forth in time with the music while slowly rotating about.

If the glances he was getting from the other young men and women in the Temple were any indication he'd grown in other ways as well...though those could be due to his unorthodox appearance.

I wake up blinded by the sunlight
Only to realize absence of life's delight
Everyone yearning for brightness
In this place enclosed in darkness
The piercing pain,
The woeful cries
The thirst for greater wealth
To achieve a better health
Families tenuous of starvation
Parents and children seeking direction
Each district secretly wanting insurrection
Against the Capitol's greedy agitation
Iridescent competition for survival created,
Controlling life for entertainment started
All of us longing for an end to this rapture
No longer wanting to suffer from this seizure
This dystopia encased in obscurity
Residents being absorbed by vanity
Can this really be reality?
Why is it devoured in catastrophe?
What caused us to give birth to human bestiality?

It had been three weeks to date since Jim's little feature.
Sebastian wasn't worried yet. Why should he be? His boss would do this quite frequently, vanishing for months at a time on some sudden whim of his fancy.

Now she was able to walk, trot and run without any pain. Her wing was still mending, but the throbbing pain was gone, she estimated it wouldn't be long before she would be flying. She would have been a lot more enthusiastic about the whole ordeal if the blue hedgehog's melancholy attitude hadn't lifted since their fight.
