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.

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.

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.

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.

They do not think that there is an after life

They believe that the life they live right now, is the only

They treasure life more then anyone.
They care about others not because they were

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

The weather was perfect for her. The blue pegasus loved not only the setting sun in the distance as it painted the Equestrian sky a colorful mixture that matched her mane, but she also loved the few clouds that dotted the sky. The mare bolted across the sky, moving from one cloud to the next in a race against herself. Her eyes squinted from behind her goggles, picking up more speed. As if she was using the clouds as both checkpoints and obstacles, Rainbow Dash flew quickly around leaving a streak of rainbow across the atmosphere.
Slowing down, Rainbow Dash looked at the land below her. She saw Sweet Apple Acres sitting below her. With a smirk on her face, the pegasus flew down in for a landing, circling around the farm a few times as she lowered herself down. Rainbow looked at the ground, noting the shadows of the apple orchards seemed to stretch across the ground. Following the shady dirt path she l

What the sea is made up of makes up 80% of me.
When you're lost in a sea you have yet to realize that part of that sea lives in you. You fear it because you cannot accept that it's apart of you. You think once accepting it, you'll drown. Drown in this terrible character and you fear you'll lose yourself. You just got to understand the waters, and learn to swim.
Though you do not fear the drowning. You fear yourself. The water poses a reflection that you can't stand. You refuse to look at these waters, but you don't understand that you are the waters. You can float for a short time, but without learning to control the power of swimming, you will drown. You must realize that the waters are in you, therefore you have the power to control the waters. They will consume you if you don't learn to understand how to swim. Understanding how to swim, is understanding how to be yourself.

Her brows furrowed as she thought about it a moment. Why did she think someone looking out their window was something out of the ordinary? Maybe because here the houses were spooky looking and vacant. Yes, definitely vacant; some had peeling paint, looking old and worn, others had broken windows, missing shingles, fallen shutters. None of them had any cars parked anywhere near them.
"Which neighborhood are we in" she asked her mother. She didn't remember ever going this route before.
"I believe it's called Sarens Peak."
"That's an odd name. Does anyone live here?"

Andy was supposed to be the one who protected them and saved them. As he stood now, staring at their lifeless bodies, he questioned his own strength. He had let them down. How could he have possibly done this? He was the Prophet, the element of Spirit.
He passed his fellow brothers, the Wild Ones, getting a final glance at each of their faces. It saddened him to see them like this. He felt responsible. He couldn't protect them from the one thing that he had trained so long for. He couldn't protect them from F.E.A.R.
His eyes flickered up to the emptiness around him. Everything around him was now nothing but dust. It made his breath catch in his throat. Nothing, but a distant memory, was left of what used to be. There was nothing left since F.E.A.R. had taken over.
