That rains so lightly upon
The cold, glittering snow
Before that star is gone
Shelter from the cold night
Until the brilliant dawn
The return of the soothing light
Of which we've grown so fond
Too often, the more distant stars
Go, in our ignorance, forgotten
They're away from us, so very far
But from them, are our lives begotten
The Music of the Spheres
Is audible to attentive ears
Listen to that magnificent symphony
That of the vast, dark eternity
Burning Orb of Luminescent Glory
Eclipse the whole of the human story
Lashing out with tongues of fire
Trivialize all human passion and desire
Stars are within us
As we are but a small part
Of the Forever All;
The Wonderful Universe
RegretIn the hollow of night when all is stillRegret8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
upon a hill where there's only shadow,
not a one knows just how it goes when doubt
is the cause for the sickness of a heart,
that died at the start and again will die
for the trials that it has not yet weathered.
And the measure of a one so weathered
is the quietness of how they are still,
but oh no, not I, for I am to die
and to do it so all in your shadow.
That I had a heart, a still-beating heart,
should always and evermore be in doubt.
And you still do smile, no likeness of doubt
after all of the things you have weathered;
though we're apart you still think I've a heart
that does care for you and thinks of you still -
but there is hope lost, and there is shadow,
and there my care for you did indeed die.
I wish I could cry for those who would die
instead of facing the things they would doubt;
but they foreshadow that one great shadow,
and they must bear the things we have weathered.
And I cannot kee

El día llego Sam fue algo fría (se lo dijo por teléfono) pero le dijo que siempre serian amigos, así que no fue tan malo, aun así el no pudo contener esa tristeza y se escapo de casa para buscar a la única persona que lo comprendería. Su hermana Jazz (quien estaba fuera de la ciudad).

Era de noche, el hombre de la luna estaba en el centro del cielo, iluminando toda la tierra, principalmente en el lago donde se encontraba actualmente su guardián más joven y nuevo, su luz se reflejaba perfectamente en el enorme lago que le pertenecía al espíritu del invierno, toda el agua brillaba intensamente.
El chico de cabellos blancos, caminaba lentamente sobre la superficie del lago, congelando al contacto con el agua, la capucha de su sudadera le cubría toda la cabeza, impidiendo verle casi nada el rostro. Tenía una de sus manos escondida en su bolsillo y la otra sujetaba débilmente su cayado.
Camino hasta un punto preciso del lago, se quedó parado ahí por unos minutos, miró a su alrededor, casi podía jurar que nuevamente estaba viviendo ese día, podía ver a su hermana patinando por el hielo junto con él.

Envy--FMA Character Analysis 1Hello fellow FMA fans and obsessive Envy fans! Here is Part 1 of my first character analysis of the world's most misunderstood homunculus, Envy. I'm doing AS-level English Literature at school, so an in-depth character analysis didn't seem like such a massive overwhelming feat to accomplish. I am going to try and be as neutral as possible when dealing with the surprisingly deep character that is Envy, so as to make the analysis believable. I'm going to look at his (or rather, as in the manga, 'ITS') character as it was originally portrayed by Hiromu Arakawa in the manga series of Fullmetal Alchemist, for obvious reasons, and am going to refer to Envy as 'it' throughout the essay for that reason.Envy--FMA Character Analysis 14 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The points I am going to expand and elaborate on in the essays are:
-Envy's human appearance, and how it is deeply significant.
-Envy's fascination, and subsequent hatred, of humans, which stems from its insecurities.
-The intense fear of death that Envy shows on two, very interesting, occas
'IB' - Chapter Five'IB' - Chapter Five2 years ago in Horror More Like This
As Dib stood outside of his home, he couldn't help the overwhelming loneliness that washed over him. After the neighbours reaction, he highly doubted anyone would take him seriously. Not like they had taken him seriously before anyway.
On top of the extreme aloneness, the boy was feeling a massive amount of paranoia. His house had proven to be just as dangerous a place to be now, and after seeing how easily and quickly Zim could infiltrate it, he realized he would never feel at peace inside of it. He would always be looking around himself, checking to make sure he was truly alone.
Dib took only small, slow steps towards the house now, his eyes flicking everywhere as he scanned for any threats. He was quite jumpy now though, so when a small leaf flew by him he jumped backwards a step and let out a high pitched scream. He began to breathe rapidly until realizing it was just a leaf before taking a deep breath and staring forward again, his eyes continuing to scan his environm

Envy Character Analysis PART 3Envy Character Study Part 3Envy Character Analysis PART 33 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
We meet our adorable sexually-ambiguous homunculus in volume 8, in which it doesn't do all that much. However, there are still goodies of character study to be found here!
So, we finally happen upon Envy with his other homunculi siblings Lust and Gluttony as they observe the newly-captured Greed suspended and crucified on a cross-like rock slab (or iron pole in the anime or giant slab as in the religiously-sensitive Viz edition of the series).
Greed and Envy, as we veterans of the first series will already know, have never been bosom buddies. For how similar they are in their vices, they are also radically different, and difference, as the FMA series shows us, naturally causes conflict.
Greed and Envy, as individual sins, both reflect the desire to gain something of value, and in pursuit of this negatively affect others.
This is, however, where the similarities end. Greed focuses nigh-entirely on material goods, such as money, property etc. Envy on the oth

A haunting wind, howling like a beast.
A terrible thump, heavy beats in the night.
A delicate sharp noise, that hangs in the air.
I hear this music over and over.
In birth, it was my cry, the slap on my back, and the cut of the cord.
In death, it was the broken window, the footsteps in the night, and the knife.
And after, it was the music I heard going six feet under, the first mound of falling dirt, and the shovel hitting the last.
Jesus death was not a sacrificeJesus death was not a sacrifice.Jesus death was not a sacrifice2 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
That's what some people say nowadays to invalidate Jesus death.
God is a God of order. He reigns with righteousness (Psalm 5:8, Isaiah 33:5) and He has a law (John 14:15, Psalm 119:33-35).
When a human law is broken there is a "payment" to make, either by going to jail, doing community service etc. When God's law is broken there's also a "payment" to make. It is the just thing to do.
'...sin is the transgression of the law' (1 John 3:4) and 'the wages of sin is death' (Romans 6:23). When Adam and Eve broke God's Holy Law (Romans 7:12), they sinned, condemning themselves and their generations to die.
Couldn't God make it so they wouldn't have to die? Why are the wages of sin death?
The problem here is not God. The problem is sin. When they sinned they stopped being perfect1 and imperfect people can't have perfect babies, that's why we all have (inherit2) sinful natures.
Perfect + sinless = ete

Down into well, poor Timmy fell,
Down he fell into the pits of hell.
Brought into hell by an eldritch spell,
Poor little Timmy who fell down the well.
Alone he cowered and shivered and shook,
He shook for hours, so long it took,
So long it took for him to feel well,
Well enough to explore this hell...
Through pathways littered with scenes most gory;
Most gory indeed was little Timmy's story,
A story of fear and suffering defined,
Poor little Timmy, he ran out of time...

Mine is not a body that would make men go to war
Mine is not a mind, sharp as a blade nor quick or witty
Mine is a heart that bleeds and loves none the less.
I am not a queen of beauty or elegance of ages past
I am not a model or scientist, nor a woman of career
I am not a fashion statement or a symbol of feminism
I am a woman with hopes and dreams none the less.
Mine is not a perfect home from the magazines
Mine is not the latest fashion or trends of clothes
Mine is not the accepted norms of life or style
Mine is the individuality of not caring for either.
I am not the person everyone else wants me to be
I am not the kind of woman people expect of me

The 13th Hour- "Interesting"Tokh walked through the halls, glancing to the sides every so often. His white hands were buried deep in his pockets to keep the cold from invading his fingers. The room itself was blue from cold, with purple sand slowly trickling through the curves of the hourglasses on the shelves. An icy wind ruffled his platinum hair.The 13th Hour- "Interesting"7 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
It was also very dark. Tokhs gold eyes were equipped with night-vision to aid him, but normal humans would not have been able to see their own thoughts. Which was why normal humans never came down here.
He paused for a moment as he passed a seemingly random hourglass. He found himself stopping all together and reaching out to take it from its perch and delicately balance it in his hand.
In reaction to the sudden warmth, the sand within flared a brilliant gold and began to glimmer. The hourglass itself quickly warmed and began to let off a subtle glow.

A voice from heart.
A lovely sound.
You're so tender,
So simple and complicated.
Spontaneous and shy.
Silent and talkative.
Serious and funny.
Always in love.
Tears rolling down for an illusion.
Eyes looking up missing somebody.
Letters never sent.
A heart that never sleeps.
You are so beautiful
Even when you feel you're the ugliest one.

Even when you feel nobody cares of you.
You are a goddess
Even when years painted lines on your face.
A sweet strength
A reason to love.
