When they came in, they always came in fast. They skid low across the atmosphere like silvery stones, flushed with coldness and dawn. It seems like they had been coming for a few years now, and perhaps observing for some time before that. We knew what they had been doing for awhile, but due to the scale of the previous conflict their depredations went unnoticed. Unnoticed at least by nations and armies. The inhabitants of a remote farm would go missing. Bandits, of course. A fishing vessel might disappear, just before dawn on a clear calm night. Drift mine, most likely. However, the disappearance of all the human inhabitants from certain remote island chains seemed harder to explain.
As things were rebuilt, one missing person became ten, then a hundred, then a thousand. A sort of harvest was suspected. It took radar and collective will to finally see them clearly. Silent, swift, and hungry. We almost never saw them at all. We never found any trace of their victims. They came o

Permítanme que me presente por favor, mi nombre es Phineas Flynn, soy originario de Danville, una ciudad ubicada en el área limítrofe o como le dicen algunos de los tres estados.
Permanezcan atentos por favor, ya que hoy les contare como es mi variada vida.
Tranquilos, no empezare desde el principio, soy consciente de que esperan de que les cuente algo interesante y no toda mi vida, por eso me centrare principalmente este último año, tomando como punto de referencia el 21 de Diciembre del 2012.

Tengo 28 años, y en cuanto a mis aficiones pues… digamos que todos los veranos siempre me dedicaba a realizar un gran proyecto para divertirme junto con mi hermano Ferb.
A pesar de ser un muchacho muy alegre, siempre me ha gustado estar en la soledad, lo sé, suena raro, pero es en serio, no me gustaba que me interrumpieran cuando

come close to me
your case is here, inside
with your name inscribed
housing powder ignited
to see you
add more to the stream,
make concrete gleam
with the shards that you fling,
stay full automatically,
cover the scene
with the steam
of hot metal
and I promise
you won't feel a thing;
of your disjointed end,
if you think
you've collected your mind
steady your step
ready for death,
you will soon be
forgetting your breath.
What happens when we dieWhat happens when we die?What happens when we die4 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
To understand what happens when we die, we have to understand what the soul is.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. ~ Genesis 2:7
The scriptures tell us that the soul is not something we have inside our bodies. The soul is the person itself. When God created Adam, He didn't give Adam a soul. Adam became a living soul.
We are a soul. That's why we read that souls are born (Genesis 46:18), souls eat (Leviticus 7:20) souls sin (Leviticus 5:17, James 4:4). Souls learn (Proverbs 19:2). Souls can get sick (psalm 41:4) Souls can die (Job 33:22) Souls can be touched and killed (Joshua 11:11, 1 kings 15:29) souls can be buried (psalms 35:7, Jeremiah 18:20). We don't have souls, we are souls.
We (souls) are not immortal or eternal.
Something eternal is something without beginning or end; lasting forever; always existing. Therefore we (souls)

Dead men, dead men
Hanging on a tree
How many dead men
Do you see?
I see a dead man
With remorse in his eyes
He lived a life of hiding
Yes hiding from his lies
I see a dead man
Who loved the sight of fire
He burned his own house
To sate his own desire
I see a dead man
Who lived in the name of lust
He tainted all the pure
His heart the shade of rust
I see a dead man
Who envied all light
Who moved with the wind
Stole the stars of night
I see a dead man
Crying tears of pain
Hands stained with blood
All washed up by rain
Sins veiled in darkness
Cries of the slain
Reflect upon such madness
Feel their very pain
Cast them retribution
Blind them with the night
This is their conclusion
Bring back the lost light
Misty blue and carrion wine
Her tresses stained with red
"DROP DEAD YOU HIDEOUS SWINE!"
You can't say that, you're dead
Dead men, dead men
Hanging on a tree
How many dead men

"Do you remember me?" it hissed, words slithering in my brain like a maggot in rotting flesh. I shuttered; I remember you my old friend. I remember the pain you bring, the suffering I feel, the hurt of your words, the sting of your truth, and the depression you leave behind with me.
"So you remember me then?"
How can I forget you? Too many times, too many hits, too many licks; you've touched me far too many times.
"You know you love it, that's why you keep coming back for more!"
I don't mean to; you bring me the worst kind of people, people I fall for, people I like, people I love. They turn on me; of course, how can they help it?

The weather had been strange. With each passing day the clouds grew thicker, darker, and heavier. A few months back they had been white, beautiful and scattered sparsely throughout the true blue. Now it was as though there was no sky at all, just a large mass of gloomy haze. Then there were days when there wasn't a cloud in sight but still everything felt off. The sky wasn't the same blue and the sun the sun was the strangest of them all. It seemed too dim but too bright, too warm yet too cold. And the way it hung, no, the way it dragged through the sky was almost eerie. Sure the nights had been strange as well; the clouds would almost completely disperse and the moon shown brighter and larger in the sky, but it didn't have the same edginess the days had.
Today was one of those cloudy days and soaring through the grey sky was a young seraph. Her speed was too high for casual loitering a

Replaced it with fire shower,
You came hissing your depraved war cries
Faces drawn like a slave to your lies;
Under the dark
Shaking your champagne bottles
You sprayed your froth- throttled
Me out of spark.
Gathered up my rivers
In pitch darkness
Starved my suns brightness.
Pulled out of my landscape
Like a picked-clean bone;
Cornered with no escape,
I died in numbers unknown.
You popped corks loud enough
To drown songs of my youth.
But your fire
Could only lick my feet;
I climbed out of the mire,
To lend fire to your funeral pyre.
In time I found and held a handle,
And blew out my first birthday candle.

Hellish bodies tossed about,
The scornful mists arrive,
A mournful cry of faith
With bloody, calloused hands held high.
To try to grasp the blackened rain
As though to save a life.
All the human bodies do
Is hang onto the light.
When morning comes
We see again,
The soul that hangs above...
Our beds are shaken, hard, and damp,
The blankets all torn up.
Oh, how the ashes fill my mouth
When fear and love combine
And mingle in the river
Of the Holy and Divine.
The greatness that surrounds us,
The taste and smell of fame,
The touch of absolution,
As the angel's sword is trained.
The angled piercing glare
And the lightning flash within.
And the bodies all give up
When the day of Fate begins.
And onto what the chosen call
The destiny we find,
And when we all can find a piece
Of fate, and that of time,
Of choking and of crying,
Of pleasure and of pain,
Of finding one who loves us
In the livid burning rain.

You will not live,
After I am through.
Rending your flesh,
My claws will shred.

Even in a place where peace was the language.
The sky was blue, and the birds flew free,
from Cloudsdale to Manehatten city.
Friends would play and they all got along.
But sadly somewhere something went wrong.
The seeds of hate were planted in their lives.
To think one conflict would cause such a terrible blight
I look at this world; it's not the same
and only the dead can hold the blame.
From this one conflict: they let it expand.
Until it became the whole world's end!
The buildings shake the ground caves in.
Thousands die, they were all turned into the wind.
A wall of light rips through the land.
Cursing their lives as they see the end.
Tears start to fall as many watch from afar.
While the clouds shut close, the sky goes dark.
"Is this really the end we'll all soon know?"
"Oh, where did this land go?"
The shadows are standing; they stand for the dead
To even think these streets would be their bed

Twilight Sparkle: War is Necessary
Arms swaying at her sides, occasionally brushing against her skirt, a woman walked down an organized, clean hall way. Her head held up high, she walked with purpose. With each step the heels of her boots made contact with the pale gold marble floor to let out a sharp and authoritative click. Her demeanor did not waste it's presence for each person she passed either greeted her politely or stood at attention until she was several steps ahead. By now she had come to acknowledge the reactions, hardly noticing them, much different from when she first received such respect, which had left her flustered and embarrassed.
Still, nothing escaped her wandering gaze. Should one of the men linger too long in the hallway or a group of woman giggle amongst themselves to loudly (or if they giggled at all dependent on her mood), she was quick to make her existence known without a single utterance, perhaps an annoyed clearing of the throat
