Thoughts, not of my own
So overwhelming, yet meaningless
Not a single word, left to be unremembered
Just a single utter of the name I still hear
A hymn to a god long banned
Cemeteries of secular stone
My mother, rested beneath cold dirt
To me, the only god I have ever known
With her final day
She gave me
The very thing she lost
From the bed
Of which I lay my head
Nestled against the pillow
As if it was the warm breast
Of the one who birthed me
I heard the thoughts
Of the only other I loved
Only to know
The bond was not mutual
I give forth my spirit
Why of all people
It will be you
To Forsake me?
For a vacant mind, you were not so hollow
Retaliation an eager thought in your head
I feared you, revered

Saint shivered furiously, his feet pounding the pavement with muted thumps as he jogged down the sidewalk. Snow blanketed the landscape around him, casting the perfectly manicured lawns and freshly swept driveways under a blanket of crystallized powder. The sidewalk was layered with a thin coating of ice, making Saints hurried journey from the school to the Vivaldi manor a dangerous one. Hed already slipped twice, the skin on his palms worn red from catching himself over and over again.
Ignoring the blood that seeped through the tiny splits in his skin, Saint rounded the last corner and practically threw himself at the large cast-iron gate that surrounded the manors estate. It was freezing outside, and he wanted nothing more than to be sitting by the fireplace with a cup of Vivaldis mint tea to warm him up. Slipping one last time on the stairs, Saint dutifully picked himself up and shouldered open the front door.

Chapter 14: The Heart of Cocoon
Things passed in my mind, clockwork of the event rushing before my pupils. Flashes of the days past, seeing Hope smiling and laughing with Vanille brought a certain fire of rage within my heart. But I doused it as I hypnotized myself, watching the colors of the bridge between the worlds of Pulse and Cocoon passed us by. The tier of ache within me was lowly throbbing at the moment, and I truly felt as if my heart had been split in two with the guillotine of their actions.
He was nothing close to being a man if he could not even confess to me as a friend that he was not truly in love with me. Instead he was a cheater, a thief and it would be some time before I could trust him again. Maybe that would be time we couldn't afford. Slowly, marks were becoming spread. Either the others would find their Focus soon, or become monsters. I pinched the bridge of my nose, trying to settle my gut that was raging in nervous tension and in the sickness of being reminded

Analyzing And Improving: Kung Fu Panda 2
There are two occurrences that almost never occur in film for me. One is that a sequel is light-years above and beyond the original in terms of quality, depth, and entertainment value. The second is that a movie I disliked yields a sequel I enjoy.
Both of these oddities came to pass in a film I initially wrote off as another cash-grab sequel, which would either be a superfluous plot-less excuse to sell toys or a shameless retread of the original film with the same tired jokes and tropes.
Still, with nothing else to really rent I checked it out and my jaw hit the floor.
If Pixar nearly destroyed its credibility for me with the painfully mediocre Cars 2, Kung Fu Panda 2 was against every odd stacked against it a nearly perfect animated movie.
But still, practically every issue I took with the first film was fixed and there are so many innovations and downright daring decisions in this sequel that it practically stands as a wake up cal

The sky above Asgard was perhaps more complex than this one, with the daylight swirling away like a dancer's petticoats to reveal stars and nebulas gleaming like facets in an enormous black crystal. But, there were no clouds in Asgard. Not really.
Thor rather liked clouds. People said snowflakes could never be exactly alike, each one a perfect example of uniqueness. But Thor thought these people rather short-sighted as clouds were exactly the same. After all, all ice can do in the end is melt. Clouds had potential. For rain. Snow. Mist.
And, of course, storms.
Clouds were ever changing. Influenced by a thousand meteorological factors. Each one not only completely individual but constantly changing and melding to better fit with the shape of the world. Wispy cirrus and misty cirrostratus. Woolly cirrocumulus, remarkably akin to the fleece of a lamb. Altocumulus which formed in patches and looked almost like an upside down range of snow-capped hills.

You stopped walking and looked down at your feet, the weight of everything that happened to you rushing into your eyes. Before you could stop it, tears flowed freely down your cheeks, combining with the ice-cold raindrops.

The silence had been unnerving, but peaceful. Kurogane sat there, polishing his sword while Fai read a book he had picked up in this world. Thank goodness for Mokona's translation spell. The only sound was the soft snoring from, as Kuro referred to it, the meat bun. Monkona was happily curled up on Kurogane's pillow, much to the large Ninja's displeasure, so it was just the two of them. Syaoran and Sakura fast asleep in the next room over.
Kuro's face held its usual scowl while Fai had a pleasant smile on his face as he flipped the pages. He could feel Kuro's dark eyes constantly flickering up from his work to stare at the blonde. His gaze would sit there for a few moments before he would sigh or huff and then get back to polishing his blade.
Crickets began to sound from outside, making the silence seem even worse. Kuro's eyebrow twitched irritably and his eyes glanced up at Fai again. That playful smile still gracing the blonde's lips, his blue eyes hoo

"'Scuse me. Pardon me. Sorry," you would often hear him say while doing this.
As he tried to get between two tables that were pretty close to each other, one of his unicycle's pedals accidentally got into a customer's face.
