Zömök tél uralja
a szürke lélek birodalmát;
marja rideg falát.
magányos, őrült fájdalmában,
hogy a jég megolvad.
Ekkor szidja magát,
mert ésszel már tudja: remény
csak a kietlen lét.
Mintha tavasz jönne
és rácáfol a józan észre:
küld a bús vidékre.
Hideg jég elfolyik
és virágot bont a kikelet.
s átkarol ízibe.
illatát, mely örömről regél -
nincsenek többé már.
De változik minden!
A karok a semmit markolják.
S csak levegőt talál.
Testetlen meleg lesz,
aztán gyorsan ez is elvész.
s fájdalom visszatér.

kis hajó ténfereg.
megkapaszkodik a gerinceken
és áthág habokon.
Megrántja a rideg Szél
vitorláját is még;
a vékonyka szöveten -
Majdan tovább siklik Tenger kékjén,
lódul, s nem vesztegel.
Honnan ez a kitartás?
- Fuvallat kérdi már -
hordani sok emléket
és halál gondolat marad csupán:
míg magány feléled!
Vidáman nyikordul fel
pár rút deszka erre:
de bizton választ nem ad.
Szél megragad és dúl-fúl mérgesen -
hajó néma marad.
Csendessé érik a Szél
és nekifut ismét:
lovagolsz a vizeken,
pedig az néha feldühödik még,
hogy széttörjön téged!

Episode 1 : Last day at the office

I knocked out five of his teeth with a fist so hard that his whole face exploded in blood and before he collapsed into the "Star Wars Wampa" rug his wife got him for Christmas, I connected a second one right under his stomach making him squeal like the pig he was. I didn't turn back to see, but the noises of curious chairs inside the cubicle farm and the silence that came afterwards was enough to know everyone's eyes were burning holes through the venetian blinds of Smith's office, just like I wanted to.
He was still conscious when I began to kick him around. Now, I got to admit things went out of hand for a moment there, but I had to make sure he would not go unnoticed in a crowd anymore. Was hard though, ignoring all those wet sounds he made, but when I was done his face was nothing but a pulpy mass of flesh begging me to stop and the message was on his way. They will hear

The alarms were blaring and I crouched behind a wall clutching my awesome new prize. I pulled my scarf from around it and grinned at the gleaming gold bust of some old woman. Yeah, I stole it. Real gold. But I wasn't after the stupid metal; I was after what was inside the bust. Something no person could ever think to be inside of this piece of junk. Honestly, I'm not even sure what's in it. I just read somewhere that this thing held something way more valuable than the gold that encased it and I searched around for tons of busts just like this one but they weren't the real thing.
I peered around the corner and spotted security guards running my way. These guys made me laugh. They were sorry excuses for security. I turned the other way and quietly, but quickly, escaped the corridor. I entered a whole new one, empty and everything and ran through it. I made a left and then a right before I hit a dead end. That's when I heard the clattering of shiny boots and sho

how painful it is to watch you sink so low.
How could a nation once so blest
become a nation which has failed its test?
Each day the sun turns its face from your deeds,
thus with the world you plant enmity's seeds.
Where has the spirit and unity gone?
Why it has drowned along with your brawn.
You once held God's will as your very own
Yet you left it and became the world's groan.
See that you've brainwashed the masses
for you are lead by a great herd of asses.
Distracted by the daily truffles of life
so long as they are fed and entertained, the people see no strife.
You liberated more people than every other nation combined
Yet now you have left your values and walk blind.
You've not learned from mistakes made prior
and your future has become dreadfully dire.
You are a wounded bear, America, you are no longer ready
you fight the wrong enemies and you don't fight steadily.
You take my freedom which was written with blood
In God you no longer

Sunken CityMy lonely boat sank 'neath the seaSunken City3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And there was metal, glass, and me.
Upon the ocean did I stand
On neither sand nor rock nor land.
Icy steel from fire wrought
Against the crashing waves had fought
And formed the face I stood upon
And the towers that eclipsed the dawn.
Though terrified I was at first
And bleary-eyed because of thirst,
My intrigue quickly did take hold
And suddenly, I felt more bold.
Upon these streets, I did set out
And cries for help began to shout,
But no soul in the city lay,
Just lifeless steel and burning day.
And to myself, I said aloud,
"What happen'd to the ancient crowd
That lived within these buildings cold
And walked upon these streets of old?"
But none there was could answer me
If over time or suddenly
Did fateful forces choose to end
The lives of near a hundred men.
What struck me hardest was the fact
That food I had but water lack'd.
All I could do was watch each cloud
And pray with rain it was endow'd.
With no one to discuss my plight,

My Statement of BeliefThere exists one God, who has always been and will always be.My Statement of Belief3 years ago in Settings More Like This
God is comprised of three distinct personalities; the Father,
the Word (Son) and the Holy Spirit.
Al three are distinct and all three are one.
God created man in His own image to have fellowship with Him.
Man chose to disobey God and as a result fell into sin.
God is absolutely holy and cannot allow sin in His presence.
Because of our sin we are all separated from God.
Since the punishment for sin is death, all of us deserve God's judgment.
Because of His love for us, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ to earth.
Jesus, God the Son, lived a perfect sinless life.
He then died on the cross as the perfect sacrifice for our sins.
Three days later He arose from the dead.
40 Days later He returned to heaven.
Someday He will return to judge and to rule the world.
Jesus' death and resurrection opened the way to heaven for us.
Jesus gives eternal life to all who repent and commit their lives to Him

"Buy a day to have a friend, in exchange for a day to be miserable."
Says the sign by the door.
I bought a friend one day. What is another miserable day anyway?
I've been having lonely bad days since I can remember.
When I make "friends"; they always leave me in the end.
Whether they moved on from something we both used to like, or they find someone better than me.
The hardest part of my miserable days, is seeing groups of happy people.
Most of all, if they are talking about the things I like. Why can't I be a part of their group? I ask myself sometimes.
Why can't I find a friend who can share a real bond?
So I rented a doll programmed to be my friend.
We went to places I liked and showed it the things I love.
We had a great time. But, I had to return it by the end of the day and it forgot all about me the next day.
It was time to pay my bill. The shop owner handed me the tab and it was blank.
He said all I have to do was live life as I usually did. Miserable.

Puis il repartit avec un sourire mielleux et une démarche de gentleman qui ne laissai aucun doute face à son rang social.
