Not because I want to feel the softness of her fair lips or the warmth of her breath as she exhales against me.
I want to kiss her because I can’t think of any other way to fully express the beauty that she is. I want her to know that I see her as perfect. That she is perfect.”

what's so romantic
about missing-you and distance,
love stressed and strained like string
across miles of roping rivers;
it's ugly and sad
and there is no cure
because i will not wait by the letterbox
praying daily on my knees to a god i know i believe in but i'm not sure you do
to hear word from you-
that you're well;
that you're happy;
that you're eating and sleeping and feeling alive;
that's what i want, you know-
i want your vitality to blaze like the great chicago fire,
i want to see your scrawl emboldened with each word
i want to see you concretely on your feet
and certain of where you are going
without a sergeant telling you how to walk.
i want you to walk across half of the states
and back into my arms.
i want you to look me in the eye
and i want to see no hesitation back
when you tell me you love me.
i never want to cry because you're leaving
because you will never leave again-
i want you to love me like flames love oxygen:

The Barracks The wind whips across the barren planet's surface. Red tinted earth glows with the light of the neighboring sun. Several long-abandoned barracks bunched together, the same sun's glint soon overpowered by a brighter light.The Barracks2 years ago in Settings More Like This
All out of nowhere, a barrage of heavy blasts of supercharged plasma obliterate the ground around the structures. The serenity of the scene is turned straight to the horrors that the most war-hardened soldiers fear in their dreams.
A blast lands between several of the barracks, uprooting one of the entire buildings and sending it somersaulting through the air. The light from the sun and the explosions glint off of the twisted metal fragment of it's former self, small molten metal bits fly from it before it crashes to the earth.
The blasts draw to a close and the scene reduced to a hellish aftermath of smoke and smoldering wreckage. A desolate place so seemingly pointless for such a concentrated attack.

Excerpt In the year 2094 ESY, mankind finally ascended to the stars. With the invention of the “Warp Drive”, a machine that creates wormholes through space, the vast unknown could be explored for the first time by human astronauts. But we soon learned that we weren’t the only sentient beings out there on exploratory missions. Many new worlds were discovered, along with many new races of alien creatures; from the lizard-like Kel’leech of Kel’le Prime, to the various sentient plant species of the Skigg of Skiggous, to the dog-like Caniins and cat-like Felii of Domesticus, are only some of the magnificent creatures that populate our galaxy. Yet all did not come in peace; many wars broke out with alien species that refused to welcome humanity, plus a few bloody wars between Earth and her colonies. In the year 2143 ESY, the United Alliance of Planets (UAP) was created. Peace was obtained through diplomatic means, creating the Council of Worlds, much like the UnitedExcerpt2 years ago in Settings More Like This

Then how will you your secret tell?

Because you cannot.
You have not color, for the daylight to see.
So how may I know of your secret, do tell me?
When there is now nothing to look upon.
Because the light won't let me.
You have not kindness in your inherited temper.

There once was a site called DeviantART,
in wish the freaks of society could be set apart.
But the admins are stupid,
it smells oddly putrid,
it might be because of the farts.
Art is the central glue,
But the admins haven't much of a clue,
What qualifies as art
is widely spread apart,
which gives porn uploaders the cue.
The generic art varies in type,
like a telephone call on Skype.
You've got your casual sparkledogs,
Sonic the Hedgehogs,
and Anime art to gripe.
The site hasn't a filter,
which may or may not be a kilter.
There's underaged kids
screaming "FUCKING SQUIDS!"
and adding on a "lol" in the face of a quilter.
If you dare to have an opinion,
if it's different to theirs your an onion,
The kid's couple is the best,
if you don't regress,
they'll beat you until you're their minion.

The ache in your chest
The burn in your throat
The sting in your eyes
When you have to say good-bye
To the one you truly love
To give up their warmth
For an empty spot beside you
When you no longer smell their scent
Right beside you
But it resides
On your clothes
The tears he wipes away
With a steady hand
As you shake
When you know he has to leave
But can't stand the very thought
When your hands shake
As you grip him tight
The tear that stained his sweater
The sweater he left for you
The sweater with his scent
That one thing that will keep you from dying
From the pain of missing
The person you want to hold tight
Maybe he will return
But it still makes you sad
To see him go away
When all you want is to be near him
You shakey voice
As you bury your face
In his wonderful scent
When you couldn't care less
If you fall apart crying
Because part of him
Is always with you
Finding HimselfHis feet dragged along the ground, barely lifting off at all. It would probably wear out his new sneakers, he knew, but somehow he didn't really care. With a hand occasionally brushing sweat from his forehead, he trudged down the sidewalk, making his slow way home from school. The afternoon sun was blazing overhead, but trees lining the path provided shelter from the heat. He knew the route home by heart. Left turn here, straight until the crossing, then right turn again. So on and so forth. The same route he took home every single day.Finding Himself5 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
He hated that route. Or, more precisely, what it represented to him.
Because he held, deep within his heart, a simmering resentment for the life he led. He resented it, hated it so much, that never-changing, mindless banality of the world. That was what the route home represented-a mind-blowing sameness, the unalterable mundanity of a world that pressured people from their earliest memories to do more, to work harder.

Whose scent does tantalize
And whose flavor is nice

Your silken touch

The thought of you enraptures
And makes my heart sing
May the goddess of sweetness
Lift you on feathered wing
The gossamer feel
Of your soft, glazy skin
Even the dullest of kin
Your existence itself
Is beauty divine
I shall adore thy glamour

You are the object of my obsessiveness
No substance volatile
No fires of hell

That in me wells
The dreamy fantasies
That your essence implores
Would slake any soul's thirst

May my stomach be your stronghold

Or more men on magazine covers,

While women losing is sexism.

Stone Spiritus are the great builders and heavyweights of the eight Spiritus races, known for all matters concerning their power, stone manipulation. All Stone Spiritus are able to manipulate the non-living or else atomically inorganic matter of stone (opposed to Earth Spiritus who manipulate the living, organic components of ground), therefore being able to create, shape, and hurl massive hunks or stone. At more adept levels, Stone Spiritus may be able to manipulate sand or possibly even lava if they are able to bypass Fire Spiritus constraints. A few Stone Spiritus have been known to be able to combat Electricity Spiritus by using their own bodies to conduct and redirect current, but the only one who has successfully executed this maneuver is the Stone Vendixus
