I'm not going to put up with it any longer.
The pain and the tears over the course of these years,
I'm fed up.
From now on I'm going to live life differently,
free of inhibitions and most of all,
No more sorrow.

Deimos stood up quickly as the ship’s computer sent out a warning signal, indicating the proximity of a nearby planet. The nails on his paws clicked loudly on the metallic floor as he made for the nearest window. Deimos’ mulberry eyes widened as he pressed his self to the glass, looking out upon a small blue and green planet orbiting slowly in the cold, black expanse of space. Long had he wished to look upon this planet, his place of origin.
He was not like the ones he remained loyal too. The Irkens. Most of them were small and green with large luminous eyes, reminiscent of his own. Instead of fur they had skin, and where he had pointed ears they had only long antennae. Yet he was a part of them. They were his family, if the word “family” would be an appropriate word to use; but after all, it was they who had made the wolf-like mutant, now staring out upon the place he had come from.
As Deimos looked out he couldn’t help but wonder what it could possibly b

A misunderstood angel,
Thrown from his home of heavens beyond,
People bow before you faithfully.
Some slit wrists hoping to glance you as they die.
Some cry bloodied tears and curse your name,
As they watch friends die
In sickness, starvation and war.
To some you're a myth,
You are a legend, not even close,
To being real.
But here lies the truth
Under old marble walls
Hidden from all humans
Not to be discovered till death.
Why does the bible not say words?
The truths about him and his four.
The Four brothers that live and reign.
Over all of Hell.
God does not move to save his children,
I used to love him.
But even Lucifer would not be this cruel.
Lucifer has better sense even then God.
Since he knows suffering as we do.
And God knows nothing of our pain.

Letting out another growl, Toothless leaped with all his force from where he stood as a great flamethrower struck him at his feet. Dashing in between trees, he realized that trying to stay close to where Hiccup was became useless as the Timberjack kept firing one scorching flamethrower after another, not giving him a single chance to stop for air or counter her attacks with his own lightning ball. Following his movements, several trees were cut down by the intimidating Timberjack wings and smaller rocks crushed beneath her feet as she chased Toothless around in great circles. Not even hiding behind bushes or anything that could serve as a cover stopped her from firing blindly around her, making Toothless worried that if he kept running around, dodging the attacks like this close to where Hiccup was, one of the flamethrowers might end up striking him, intentionally or not. Toothless just wished he would wake up, so that he had least could get away while he averted her attention. But no

They will never come to understand, to accept.
They only see our flaws, our mistakes.
They will only know what they've been taught, been told.
Are you okay with that?
Are you able to look past that?
Because you are not alone with this.
There are others out there.
And they are the ones that really matter.
We will be there to help, to heal.

You sigh and stand straight before wipe away a little sweat that had gathered. You had been scrubbing at the deck for what seems like forever. It was Captain Jerkland's fault. He had been so amazed in your cooking skills, and he wanted you to scrub the deck. Then, the annoying crew just had to butt in and agree with the man. Ugh, the nerve of those smelly pirates! You were already cooking for them, plus they had been the ones to abduct you!
"Why hello, babe," a voice says. You turn to see a tall man with blonde hair and brilliantly blue eyes. He has a little flippy piece of hair at the top, which made him look cute. You could already tell he was not the help, because he was dressed in a long, blue coat with gold swerving around all over it. Also, he had a blue hat with a golden- that's right, it's golden feather sticking from the top.
"What do you want, pirate?" you ask the man you've not seen before.

- Later that day, as soon as the last Night Fury drifted into the world of dreams, I tiptoed my way out as quietly as I could. Then I unfolded my wings and with a "Farewell, everyone" thought started rising into the night sky. I didn't really know nor care where I flew, the only thing I wanted was to get away, as far away as possible. I guess my mind went a little black at that point, 'cause the next thing I knew was that I woke up in an unfamiliar place, my whole body aching like never before. At first it was like a dream came true: after my legs stopped aching I caught my own breakfast in a lake, had a rest and explored a little. But when a seashore came to my view, my dream turned into a nightmare. I finally realised I had no idea about how I appeared here and how I was supposed to go back: there was nothing but sea around, and I couldn't fly to my island because I didn't know where it was; none of the Night Furies actuall

Here they were. The Nightmare King, and the Winter. Since the battle for the lights of the children, Pitch has kept a keen eye on Jack. He was a neutral party, and not to mention apparently extremely strong. However, it came as little surprise since dark and cold were easily put together, yes? He even made mention to that kind of power when they created the black-sand glacier mere moments ago.
But when Pitch offered him a spot as a partner, he never expected the other to agree. Jack let his offensive stance drop ever so slowly, and Pitch had his arms up in a gesture, but were now frozen as he stared wide-eyed at the boy. This went on for so long, that Jack pulled his hood up over his head and looked away.
"Really?" Pitch blurted out again, mainly to himself than to the other.
"Yeah, because, you know.." he shook his stick. "..your right. They'll never trust me, and children will never believe in me. Why should I take a chance with their judgement when yo

The wall stood high behind him as the General walked away from it in one of his routine night watches. His dog, Athos, found its way besides its master. It sniffed the air carefully but seemed to find nothing. Not like Ascaraeus Aranai, General and the Head of the Defense Force of the Harbingers, expected anything out of ordinary happening. Their village was built on a remote point of the peninsula. They were protected by the sea, the forest and the Castle of the Family.

A Matter of the HeartA Matter of the Heart1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
How do you heal a heart
When it comes to you?
Do you wrap it in cellophane?
Tightly, so the hurtful words
Never seep inside?
There is no shelf-life on a heart
No timer or date you can set it by
Do you pack it in ice?
Cloak it in the tiny crystals
Until, cold and blue, it hardens from pain?
Or do you weep over it quietly?
Letting your tears form the coating
Letting your words drown the suffering
How do you bear the pain, I wonder?
If your heart is chained, as well
Sick with your own troubles, your own grief
How do you heal another?
Or do you burden yours further?
How do you heal a heart
When it comes to you?
How do you wipe the blood
From a troubled soul?

I've drawn more here than I ever did studying art at uni. And what's even more amazing is that I've enjoyed it.
Recently, I've been on a bit of a downer concering my artwork. I hadn't been doing anything. I knew I should've been, but I hadn't. I'd tried many different exercises for drawing techniques and tried drawing drills. After coming to this course however, and meeting several friends, I began to realise.
I was enjoying the work that I was doing. Before, in uni, I had fallen into such a state, that it no longer seemed like something that should be enjoyed, just something that needed to be done. The most miraculous thing is how quickly I've improved over these past couple of weeks, from just wholeheartedly enjoying my drawings and getting stuck in. I now draw everyday, not because I think I should, but because I want to. I've stopped usi

A relatively newly devolved genus,

the Common Troll can be identified
by its lack of intellect,
astounding arrogance and total
inability to identify or tell the truth.
Inexplicably, the Common Troll

Zoologists are baffled, and fear

Her scream was alone in the night. Not a sound accompanied it in the wild, wild darkness. Cenda could see only his shadow now, only the blue tint of his hair as he withdrew farther and farther away. She tried running to him but the steps took her nowhere. She didn't gain up on him no matter how fast she run.
"Don't leave me!" she screamed after him, but he didn't stop. He didn't turn around to come back. Cenda had to stop to breath, but her lungs didn't seem to catch the air. It flew right through her, or at least it felt like it. Her heart was pounding hard against her ribcage, so hard it hurt. Wounded. She was wounded. And bleeding. She was bleeding. Inside.
"Niem... please..." Cenda choked out but barely heard even her own voice. The shadow was gone. Gone, gone, gone into the darkness. She felt it closing in around her, swallowing her like night swallows the day. She tried to run, tried to find him. See even a glimpse of him. But nothing. She saw nothing. She felt

Keenan's eyes wandered around the yard where people were gathering. More and more were coming. They weren't occupying only the soil but the nearby trees and rooftops alike. There was only one reason why the people of Heen were gathering in front of the leader's residence all at once this early in the morning, before the sun had completely risen. They had been summoned there.
And everyone knew the reason. It had to have something to do with the angels.
The so called Kookanee tribe.
Keenan snorted and removed a strand of brown hair from his face. It was about time this meeting was held. Those traitors had been left alone for too long. They had managed to form a tribe of their own.
