It’s all red to me, peering at it beneath a bloody rag
I drove my bicycle into a brick wall today
Strange things leaked from the cracks in my skull
Tiny spider-monsters, oven cleaner, crumpled pages
Ashes and diamonds, pieces of eight, stardust, milk
I lay behind a dumpster leaking for years and years
Below the ‘No Exit’ neon sign, before it was replaced
With a Wal-Mart, where I was a Valued Customer
They bandaged me up, gave me a shot of morphine
And one of those little carts so I could continue shopping
I bought a gun
I Belong To You I hate rain. Not really, I love it. Just not when the most beautiful, perfect, wonderful, perfect, comfortable, waterproof, perfect coat in existence has been savagely butchered by my so-called friend’s Dalmatian.

Some people might try to fill the void with lesser coats but I can’t bring myself to betray Valentino, even after her death. Instead my slippery arms grapple with each other in wet shock as I stumble to the op shop, clinging to one last thread of hope. I know in my deadened heart that I’ll never have another coat like her. Yet here I am, blundering through the elements in my vain search for the acceptance and warmth I found wrapped in Valentino’s woollen sleeves.
Thud. My body slams into the door, making the ‘open’ sign quiver and the bells tinkle in offense. I fight for entry, the door’s assault doubled by the stale funk of

But in truth, they are the ones who are living life to the fullest.
They do not think that there is an after life
where we can frolic and dance for eternity.
They believe that the life they live right now, is the only
life they have, and the only life they will ever have.
They treasure life more then anyone.
They care about others not because they were
told that it is the right thing to do, but because
they feel that it is the right thing to do.

I should have died today.
I know I should have died, I went ahead to scout and there they were, abyssal creatures hundreds of creatures corrupted by the abyss and they captured me alive. I cannot believe that, I have difficulty believing they would do that and it happened to me. The Abyss is simply a force of nature the constant devourer that will attempt to hunt and eat every one of my kind. And yet it spared me. It wanted to know something, something I did not know, but I did know one thing if I told them of my ignorance I would die so I talked and talked telling them everything of no importance while I attempted to think of a way out.
After a few hours of this William and Kriana came to my rescue, no time have I ever been so happy to see anyone. William did almost kill me with a firestorm he dropped on the abyssal creatures, burned up my back something terrible. I am rapidly running out of serviceable clothes.

A-22A Raider (LOSA)
A-22A Raider or LOSA (Low Observable Strike Aircraft) is a stealthy land or carrier based attack aircraft. It is tail-less design powered by twin afterburning turbofans and a two-man crew. It is designed for both high and low altitude penetration of enemy air space to provide CAS, Wild Weasel, and rapid strike missions carrying a variety of air-to-surface munitions.
The basic design of the Raider allows for excellent maneuverability at all airspeeds, and provides excellent low speed handling, such as an approach to an aircraft carrier. It utilizes 2 dimensional (pitch axis) thrust vectoring nozzles and P&W F119-100 low-bypass turbofans like that of the F-22A Raptor.
The Raider also uses many other technologies developed for both the F-22A and F-35A such as the AN/APG-81 AESA radar, EOTS, HMD, and numerous other systems.

you and me holding hands, so in love at the start..
you and me in the wind on a swing at the park..
on my knee with a ring, oh we hugged and we smiled..
life was good; now it's great, or was I just in denial?
'cause we fought, then we cried; and we broke, then we lied..
now you're gone and I'm lost feeling so weak inside..
so I ask: could we be — after all we have seen —
still in love, yet broke up; somewhere trapped in between?
I don't know, you're still gone; time has passed, nights are long..
here's to you — here's goodbye — as to you I gift this song..

"Hey..." Luno poked me in my belly. "Are you awake?" I groaned a little. "Solé..."
"...What?" I mumbled with my eyes closed.
"Never mind..." He said. "Yeah, well... Food's here..." I opened my eyes when I realized I actually was hungry. Luno smiled and shoved a bowl with Pokemon food to me. He stared at me as I started eating, Luno watching me. After a while I couldn't stand it anymore.
"...You know..." I carefully started. "...It's kind of hard to eat when there's someone looking at you all the time..." Luno blushed and looked away a little.
"S-Sorry..." I instantly felt bad.
"No... I-I didn't mean it that way!" I laid my paw on his. He looked back and smiled slightly.
"Ok..." I felt my cheeks becoming a little red. What was wrong with me? I turned my head away, afraid he'd see my blush. I tried to look a little through the corners of my eye. Luno looked to a total different direction.

The Story of TwoStories, oh so many stories!The Story of Two3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They tell of pain and misery.
These stories of a tortured girl
With horrid memories.
Pain of a broken heart,
As she's left alone in the dark...
The pieces scattered everywhere
When she found there was no spark.
Haunted by her memories by day,
And horrifying dreams at night...
Tears stream down her face
With the pain she cannot fight.
So many people doubted her
And always saw nothing,
But in all reality...
In this girl was something.
This girl had a soul of silver,
A heart made of gold.
Great strength and determination,
A personality so bold.
She refused to give up,
Kept success in sight...
She would not back down,
Wouldn't give in without a fight.
This girl is more than nothing,
More than anyone could see.
She's got so much potential,
So much she could be.
Yet no one understands,
No one wanted to believe.
Except one young man
With his heart on his sleeve.
He saw everything in her,
The agonies of her past...
He saw a horrifying life

tossed carelessly down to Earth’s residing floor.
Kicked and quickly crumbling, you’re pushed along the surface
or washed up on the shore.
Your lines fading, blurring out,
your tattered edges worn.
You’re thrown and tossed and burned and crumpled,
fearful as you’re torn.
Your lines and edges ripped and soiled,
folded and inevitably bashed,
Your margins, boundaries, clearly coiled,
an appearance so unmatched.
A life meant for others, a worthless ending taper,
feeling imperfection, but this is just life as paper.

“What are we calling up Master?”
“You in a manner of speaking my boy.” Reinhardt smiled to himself. “Today you will no longer be my apprentice.”
“You mean?” Johannes pushed himself off of the wall looking excited. “You’re taking off the restrictions.”
“That’s right from now on you will be your own man, under your own power and your only limit is what you set for yourself.”
“Thank you Master.” Johannes bowed his head.
“Think nothing of it. Get into the circle and we shall begin.” Johannes did as he was told and waited for his Master to fetch his staff. It had changed a few times over the years from a simple hiking staff to a more ornate staff, suit

Every day hanging by a thread is my hope...
I never believe to lose my heart this way for someone else…
Now I wonder why suddenly she no longer wanted me. Why my life went empty. Why nobody answer my questions...
Nothing left without her...
Live without living in me and the hope for life is so high, that I die, because I do not die...
One day I dreamed a love like no one could ever dream it, some love it was all life, all poetry.
And the winter passed and did not come, and the spring also passed, and neither came.
I'll stop calling the Moon by your name. Maybe knows, that I died in your mouth.
You have killed more than ten times and I have been reborn in other: your eyes.
Happy images of the woman fill my confused mind.
My heart lets himself go, and for the first time is quiet. And I smile at the naive girl.

Do you still remember the first time we met? It was in Kindergarten. I was going down a slide and then the string on the hood of my jacket got caught on the banister and I was choking. I wanted to scream for help but I could only stare forward with my bulging eyes and hanging tongue, until the teacher saw me struggling and untied the string so that I could breathe. "Don't be afraid now," she told me. "You're safe."
I didn't see you again, Death, until many years later. Middle School--when people were busy trying to find their partners on the dance floor during P.E., you and I were already locked in a nightmarish salsa no one else could see. I held the cup of water in one hand while you held the uncapped bottle of pills in the other. And the moment I reached out to you to take them, that's when people saw us dancing and pulled me away. "What the hell were you thinking?" they asked me. "Come back and stay with us."
But even though we weren't moving in macabre unison, the musi

A snow shower pelted the landscape of the forest during moon-high. A howling wind blew through the trees, which carried some snowflakes with it. The tree’s branches shook, and the pine tree’s needles swayed. It was leaf-bare, the cruelest part of the year. However, in the Deerclan camp, a miracle was happening.
“Eaglepaw, grab one of the sticks by the entrance while I feel Specklefang’s stomach!” ordered Dreamleaf. Her young apprentice then ran to the entrance of the nursery and grabbed one of the snow covered branches in his jaws. He brought it over and gave it to Spottedfang, whom held it in her mouth. Dreamleaf then placed her white paw onto the gray she-cat’s stomach.
“There will be two kits, Spottedfang,” the medicine cat meowed. The queen nodded her head before a spasm shook her body. A minute later, a gray she-

These were the first words the white and grey she-cat processed. Slowly she lifted her head to meet the Medicine Cat's gaze. Quietvoice's eyes met her's and they wouldn't look away. Swiftstream dragged her gaze away from the Medicine cat's to the five scraps of fluff that were suckling at her belly. They were perfect. In a rush she felt the fierce pride of a mother as she swept her tail around her kits. Nothing could ruin this moment.
A spotted grey tom loomed over the new mother and her kits. He was so huge that Quietvoice was pressed against the nursery wall. His shadow blocked the light filtering from the den entrance. Out of instinct she wrapped her tail tighter around her kits and raised her head to meet his gaze. When he spoke his voice was smooth as silk.
"Won't you permit a new Father to look at his kits," he asked, and the she-cat felt a shiver down her spine. Out of the corner of her eye she could spot the

I raced towards the Hokages Tower determined to find out what happened to my dear Naruto. Barging into her office, she looked up at me in surprise.
"Sasuke? What's happened? Why the big rush?" She asked a little shocked. She stood up and posed the way she always does and I glared.
"I want you to tell me who was on that mission with Naruto! Right now!" I growled at her, wanting an answer right there and now. Tsunade sighed and sat back down.
"I don't think anyone went with him Sasuke. Hakate has the report, ask him. But Sasuke, don't be angry at his response." Tsunade looked down and continued with her work. I stood there like a gaping fish for about one minute before I ran off to Kakashi Sensei's place.
Sensei's place wasn't too far away, so I was able to get there within minutes. I bashed my fist against his door. No answer. I tried again before losing my patience and kicked the door in.
