PersonaWe all wear a maskPersona5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
No matter how we shape or mold it
It stays the same way even with a slight change
For the mask is a part of us
Just as we are part of the mask
When we hide a hidden side
Deep within our hearts
It becomes a shadow
Something we try to deny
Something to forget
But it always comes back to haunt us
Trying to engulf us in its darkness
To show others what their really like
As they keep denying it gets stronger
Shifting and molding into something terrifying
The shadow becomes a beast
A monster of our dark side
Because we've denied it
For thinking it isn't a part of us
But it is a part of us
Like we are a part of it
The only way to combat it
Is to accept it as it is
For that shadow is you
You are the shadow
Your persona that is in your heart
Don't be afraid
Just face it
Show no fear
The shadow is you
You are the shadow
You wear the mask
Wearing the mark
On your heart
Once you accept it
It becomes a great ally
A powerful persona
Right by your side
Always there to hel

Metis was hurried into the meeting room. Aigis laid her on the large table, while Fuuka and Mitsuru scrambled around the room, gathering equipment and activating whatever program there was on the computer. Shinshudo began her inspection on Metis, taking mental notes about the damage that was caused by her daughter. ‘Goodness, I know that Labrys is strong. But I never thought she had this much raw rage pent up inside her…there must be something my predecessors missed when they were working on her.’
Labrys was sent outside to wait in the lounge with the others, where they could hear her mother giving out orders to Aigis and Fuuka. She sat by the window, staring outside while remaining perfectly still, like a porcelain doll on display. She didn’t even flinch at the discontent stares the others were giving her. At first Akihiko and Shinjiro were assigne

The three wild cards stared wide-eyed and mouth opened at the freaky scenario before them.
“What the hell…”
“…is going on…”
As if noticing that it was being stared at, the red moon grew brighter. The inky black sky made it look more ominous. It released a flash so blinding, they were forced to shield their eyes.
But just as soon as it appeared, the red moon was gone. In the blink of an eye, back in its place was an ordinary crescent moon emitting a dull light.
“What was that?” Minako gasped.
“It wasn’t the Dark Hour, that’s for sure,” her twin stated.
“I can’t tell if that was a Dark Hour phenomenon or not,” said Souji. “But it could be related. I think a visit to the Velvet Room is warranted.”

Around noon, the two groups were gathered in front of the Aiya Diner. The sun was high and their stomachs were growling. They made a quick stop at Daidara's for a while to check out any new weapons the old man had forged.
"I don't know about you guys, but I'm starving." Chie said, her stomach easily growling the loudest.
Yosuke smiled and turned to her. "Me too. How about a beef bowl, Chie? My treat."
She was surprised by his kind offer, but accepted it with a smile. Souji and Yukiko exchanged secret smiles.
The lunch crowd was starting to subside, and the Persona users waited outside for a while so that they all could fit inside.
"Well, let's get something to eat and discuss what we uncovered around town." Minato said, browsing the menu mounted beside the restaurant entrance. "I think I'll stick to ramen. I hadn't had that in a while."

"Shhh...don't be afraid." the beautiful man in blue, whom Minako had called Theo, rose with graceful fluidity and caught her in his arms as she blacked out from the shock of seeing him again. He laid her body on the couch, resting her head in his lap and softly stroking her face until she was able to wake up. He'd felt something for her once, in his strange and naive otherworldly fashion, and he didn't realize how much he'd missed the feel of her presence after having watched her from afar for so long. He held her, fondly reminiscing about those days before she jolted upright away from him. He couldn't understand why she pulled away and felt hurt at first until he remembered that things weren't as they were back then, life having since moved on in her world. "My apologies." Theo blushed, the faint redness apparent on the pure white skin of his perfect face.

Maybe because he wanted things to be in the dark.
An escape. A reprieve. Another life.
And then he woke.
Souji Seta was lying face down on a floor.
He felt its cool surface.
How did he get here?
He racked his brains until a voice said.
Awake are we my little deceiver?
Souji stared at the dark figure who was wearing a school uniform.
With uncanny silver hair and a face full of malice and chagrin.
And its eyes. They were the brightest yellow almost gold that he had ever seen.
His heart stopped for a long moment.
Was that himself he was looking at?
Why so surprised? the figure spoke.

At first, when Pepper spoke to him over the phone she thought for sure that he was faking so he could get out of the press conference he had today. This, however, was not true. Tony was actually sick. He had been in bed all day, at least two blankets draped over him at any time for when he got cold chills. Two tissue boxes, along with many used tissues sitting on the floor, a pile of cough drops, and a half finished glass of water all cluttered his nightstand next to his bed. Even though he was sick, he for some reason decided that he needed to use his laptop. He was half sitting up, the computer on his lap, typing something into a program before the laptop completely shut down, its screen quickly flashing to black.

Luckily, there was an outlet. Mom had taken advantage of that and plugged a small nightlight into it when I was little. She claims it's still there because “it's safer. I wouldn't want anyone tripping in the middle of the night.” But that was bullshit, and we all knew it. There was nothing to trip over in the hallway, nor would there ever be. No pets to run in front of you when you least expected it and no small children to leave their toys wherever they lost interest in them last.
The reason the nightlight was there was because I had been terrified of the dark when I was little. It was so bad I would have night terrors. They stopped when I

No pressure… you thought as calmly as you could manage.
Then you opened the door, stepping into what seemed to be an even more frigid environment than before. You shivered, “Damn it’s cold in here.”
Loki turned around; he had been standing with his back to you at the far edge of his cage. You noted that he was no longer muzzled, but appeared more tired and beaten than ever before.

"Yeah, but we're just better at hiding it," Shadow Minako added, letting out a creepy giggle.

It was the third attack on Earth that you had heard about and the first you had actually experienced. During the battle you had found yourself saving a dark haired ma’s life by springing into action and striking down a cathulu baby as you called them. You had later learned from the S.H.I.E.L.D. files that they were called Tyven, a race from a planet more covered in water than earth. You had also learned that the dark haired man who you had saved was the very same demi-god who had been the first to attack earth, Loki. You had been inducted into S.H.I.E.L.D. after they had learned of what you did for Loki and been trained as a ground officer. Meaning you got a job in a government building to keep an eye on things.

The tears running freely
Down my face.
They told us nothing was wrong,
Although their eyes were wide with fear.
Listen to me! my father said,
Everything will be alright, Dear.
But the tears were running freely

This must be some mistake!
My mothers face was grim
And her hands began to shake.
And the tears ran freely
Down her face.

Not wanting to believe.
I cried out to my father.
He wasnt allowed to leave.
The tears ran freely
Down my face.
I was shaking.
My skin was deathly pale.
The cold drove right through me,
Like a driven nail.
The tears ran freely
Down my face.
From the little life boat, my mother and I,
Watched the Titanic sink down
And thought of my father, back on the ship,
Struggling not to drown.
And the tears fell freely
Down our faces.
