Can you give a soul salvation?Can you give a soul salvation?3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
In the war with only night
In the shadows fearing light
One gives way to take respite
This the plea, he shall incite.
In the dark, he's lost in fright
Weary of the eternal plight
Singing that solemn lullaby,
Of the stars that have gone by.
Lost forever in the fight
From the danger and fright
Lacking will to neither live nor die
For them to strike he thus invites
Only a love from the days of old
Can stop the darkness taking hold
But his heart has grown so cold,
To decay, his body sold.
Who can offer him salvation?
Through the fear of annihilation?
Driven mad with isolation,
Can you save A souls temptation?
Who can off the love and light,
In the approaching dread of night?
In the coming of the swarm
Who can chase away the swarm?
From his death to his birth
Angels and demons war on earth
For whatever his soul is worth
Save this man from the markers words.

unknown by secrecy,
Ready and under high demand.
Six soldiers prepared
And deployed on command.
Now fought on desperate ground
Fear can now be seen.
We cannot back down,
Tis' what it seems,
No solutions found
But one,Noble team.
NO more options
We will have to cope.
With only one solution
These six soldiers, Spartans
Are our last hopes.
One by one they fall
Jorge, Kat, Carter, and Emile.
One by one defeat called.
This fight lost,
This thought, all can feel.
One left to lose,
But not all forgotten.
Now the package delivered
Nothing but surviving
Is the concluding option.
Fought and fought did he,
With no sight of cover,
Firing in all directions so desperately,
This fight is carried on,
But for him, it is all over
These brave minds...
These brave souls....
These humble soldiers,
Named justly, the nobles.
Through their battles waged
We turn the next page
as they are remembered as saviors
So on shall their story be remembered,
On shall their story teach,
Of the the days when S

With tears in my eyes
Like it is perfectly natural
Laughing out Loud
Can't see me cry
To see through these tears
Just to realize
You typed another damn smiley face
The rest of the message
Is so happy
Why don't you wring my neck yourself
Instead of letting the words do the dirty-work?
I can barely stomach
You typing the words
"The world is great" to me
Next to follow
Is some insperation proverb
You felt compelled to share
Once more, it's a lie
Solemnly I type the words
"That's a great one
It's so inspirational"
Don't say I lied though
Because you started it
I don't see
How you can even tolerate yourself
Your so happy
You sicken me deeply
But yet I linger
For fear of being alone
You make a desperate attempt
At some joke
Barely seeing the screen through the teary haze
I type LOL once more
But everything I typed
Has been in code
I'm crying right now
You try something else

Death of Emile
I watched as the last remaining Brute Chieftain drop to the rain-soaked pavement with various bullet wounds embedded into it's flesh.
Even with the last of the Covenant forces on the landing pad were killed, but my senses were still telling me that there are bound to be more of them.
And my instincts were telling me soon... very soon that they'll come.
I release the clip of my M392 DMR and refreshed it with a new one, readying myself if the Covenant bound themselves to show up.
I could feel the landing pad vibrate as Emile fired the Mass Driver into the oncoming Banshees, blowing them out of Her sky.
One by one...
As my gaze drifted towards the oncoming Pelican, the Pelican that's holding the UNSC's most highly skilled strategist and inspirational leader among the their Navy;
Captain Jacob Keyes.
As the Pelican landed on the landing pad and opened the back hatch, I could see three Marines and the Captain himself.
I placed the M392 DMR onto the back of my MJOLN

Let the old kings rise

And when time comes

and grab your shotgun
Fight in the dead wars
This should be fun
The residents are evil
in this house of the dead
load up on ammo
they want to be fed
This is all real
There's no typewriter
Just hand me a cocktail
and a Zippo lighter
Grab your gun
Lock and load
It's already begun
It's time to go
Kill 'em all
It's not just citywide
It's a worldwide brawl
Better not get bit
Or the virus'll spread
So if you do
I'll aim for your head
Whether a 9 millimeter
or a pump action 12 gauge
Doesn't matter the caliber
Shoot 'em in the face
Burn 'em, shoot 'em
break their neck
do whatever it take
to stay unbit
Grab your gun
Lock and load
It's already begun
It's time to go
Find other survivors
Hold up somewhere
You better prepare
Reinforce the door
It's your last stand
Here comes the horde
They're now in inside
Broke through your defense
Others have died
Take the offense
They keep on coming
Round after round
You can't kill them all
What Awaits at the Farthest Ends...The night started with a bottle of scotch and a blank piece of paper. When he came to the beach it was a warm spring night, right on the verge of summer but the heat didn’t last. A chilling wind came rolling off the water as the sun disappeared beyond the horizon. The cold hadn’t bothered him, nothing really bothered him anymore.What Awaits at the Farthest Ends...3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
He spent the whole night on that beach dragging his palms through the coarse sand, letting it slip through his fingers. He gave his hands a long look- still heavily calloused and riddled with scars. His skin resembled the facades of the old beach houses- cracked and weathered from too much sun. He was sure his hair must be wild, salt-ridden and damp from the ocean spray, but that hardly mattered either.
He had tipped the bottle back and drank the rest of his liquid courage hours ago, the arthritic bones in his neck still sore from savoring that last sip.
Dawn crawled up the coast like a shadow, bringing a thick mist that hovered over the water. He

It felt so good to be home after days of traveling. I was the Dragonborn who slain Alduin and the one they called Stormblade, the one who lead the Stormcloaks to victory against the Empire and recently, stopping vampires from taking away the sun. All I wanted to do was sit in my home within Windhelm and enjoy a bowl of venison stew before resting in my own bed after weeks of eating rabbit and sleeping in a bed roll in the mud.
As I walked through the icy town, two people approached me; they dressed in strange garments and wore masks almost similar to the Dragon Priests of ages past. One held their hands on their hips, the other leaned against the wall of Candlehearth hall, arms crossed over their chest and looking at me.
"You there! You're the one they call Dragonborn?" asked one of the strange people, this one was female, but the race was unknown.
I looked at them with an eyebrow raised, one of my hands resting on the hilt of my battle axe strapped to the back of my Dawnguard armor.

Remove my MJOLNIR armor and also bask my very pale skin among the glorious waves.
I wished that we all could do this, if we aren't in any UNSC or ONI personnel content...

As we, including our 'very prized' doctor, Dr. Halsey, walked through the big tunnel of the hangar towards the two docked Pelicans that they sit upon.

Our celestial neighbor, the red planet, Mars goes mad.
Not its fault
Rewind 20 yrs:
The 2026UB313 meteor was distracted from its original target, the earth, to hit Mars in a massive explosion. The meteor was spotted in the year 2026 and hence the name. Its trajectory had alarmed the scientists as it was in collision norms with the Earth. The calculated impact time was 10 years.
Ever since the 2012 doomsday was successfully averted, the space had grown hostile towards the earth. As many as 100 meteorite crashes were reported in 2yrs. Our sun showered more cosmic radiation than ever through the depleting Ozone layer. As fixing these became the top priority, no one paid attention to the 2300 km wide rock hiding in the Jupiter's shadow. And by the time the spectral analysis confirming a moving object was taken seriously, it was almost too late. There was not time to check the composition of the meteor, without which blowing it up was not practical. The onl

Without a moment of hesitation, the American pulled you into another back breaking hug. "WOO! Alright dude! You made the right choice! We're gonna party!"
The other nations were pretty disappointed you didn't choose to go with them, especially Britain who was now scowling and folding his arms and France who was pouting, disappointed he couldn't give you a makeover.
