The Red CrownThe Red Crown6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I remember a ruby crown,
By mischief set alight,
Perilously burning down
On your tresses of night.
A leap, a splash, and wounded pride;
Such memories I had.
I know that you were beautiful;
I knew all girls were mad.
What I lost, at last regained,
But only these of worth:
Your smile when you said my name,
And the land that gave me birth.
Cruel truth remaining to be faced,
Demons to be fought,
But a moment with you: there is peace,
And pain can be forgot.
I did naught to deserve this life,
And the debt must be paid;
The land in flames of war and strife;
Her pain must be allayed.
My pride, my safety, and my throne;
These I could deplore,
But how could I leave thee alone
Loved I not honour more.
When I've fought for love of country
And died for love of friends,
Maybe I'll then be worthy
With you to make amends.
As the lightning fades I'm praying
To be again with thee,
And we are children playing
Under an apple tree.

Rex stared at the wall. Cody had gone drinking with the others, leaving Rex alone with Denal. Rolling over, Rex watched his most trusted trooper stretch and take off his armored boots.
Going to bed already Denal? Rex chuckled.
Denal turned and grinned at his captain, Well sir, we got training tomorrow dont we? With your drills, Ill need my rest. he snorted.
What? Rex grinned.
Oh its just the rest going off like that. Boy, their gonna have a hangover and go through drills. Sucks for them. Denal smirked.
Rex put his arms behind his head. He hadnt bothered to remove his armor yet. He wasnt even tired. After counting all of the scratches on his helmet, Rex glanced over to Denal who dozed with his arms crossed over his chest.
Loud barks of laughter and a hard thud directed Rexs attention to the door. Denal had awaken, annoyed at the interruption.

The time had come for all things to change,
All your childhood memories erased,
Everything you thought you knew replaced
With things neighborly and all strange.
Whatever you love: the rock 'n' roll,
The silver screen magic, song and dance,
The puppet theater, has been choked,
As the voice of the frog had croaked.
The filtered air is no longer sweet.
The dead man's count is off the charts,
Of shattered dreams and broken hearts.
What is wholesome is merely deceit.
The end was brought by a small red imp,
Who tickled fancies and hypnotized
His charm was all but mirrors and smoke,
When the voice of the frog had croaked.
The cookie crumbs are nothing but lies!
Don't let children play on the junk heap;
Without self-esteem they'll be dirt cheap,
Like monsters damned to philosophize,
Ever changing "in" to "out" and back,
And justice is near, justice is far.
The monstrous moa flew unprovoked,

No hollows... no enemies... not even a pop quiz.
His day was an utter bore.
Light foot steps approached the door before a slight creek was heard.

He looked to his side, spotting a stuffed animal being held up in the air.

The rain pounded against the slippery and muddy dirt trail. All around you you can hear the heavy breaths and smacking footsteps of your comrades running, carrying their bundle of supplies and their green hoods drawn over their faces. You were shivering, but you felt hot all over. You guessed it was the exercise taking its toll.
You looked at each and every one of your friends, taking this opportunity to clearly analyze their traits. It was always a habit of yours to stay observant, especially in such a tragic world as this.
You looked at the short blonde next to you. Her name was Christa Lenz. She was always going out of her way to help people. She was fast and used her size to the utmost advantage; you knew this because you had sparred with her once and had underestimated the short girl, ending up getting a mouthful of dirt. She was always apologizing for the littlest things, even if it wasn’t her fault. You held a deep respect for Christa

You heard pants and wheezes that screamed desperately for air.
The dark haired student in front of you, coughing while setting his red framed glasses on his rather beautiful eyes that deepen into an ivy-like colour, started to calm his breaths.
After looking at him carefully since you couldn't during class, you noticed that he had long legs, an attractive face that showed intelligence and theoretical thinking, overall a figure and character of a person that would definitely be popular, or be a main character in a story to make an example.
How desperately did he run?
Did you do something to him?

He was leaving for another expedition.
You were both used to this routine; telling your goodbyes over and over again. No matter how many times he left, anxiety built within, nerves on edge as paranoia washed over. He always came back-- some injuries here and there, but the commander always recovered from it.
But even though his return was almost guaranteed, it never reassured you that he would truly come back.
A small sigh left roseate lips, digits reluctantly brushing his cheek, eyes meeting blue hues. His eyes were always memorizing; a remembrance of the long nights you spent together, gazes burning into each other, bodies pressed against each other.
A timid smile crossed your lips at the recollection, a hint of curiosity appearing on the blond’s sharp features, a questioning look shot your way.
Shaking your head, the concerned thoughts returned to mind once again, look of content immediately faltering. Fingers tentatively grasped his shirt, a step forward closing the distance
Break the Ice (Contest Entry)This was not how Raven had planned spending her summer. Summer was many things, but freezing was not one of them. She shivered and pulled her cloak tighter around her, wishing now more than ever for a fur lining to keep the cold out. Next to her, Robin seemed to be fairing no better than she was. Raven looked around at her surroundings, longing for the beautiful visage that the Titans' Tower had to offer. If she closed her eyes, she could imagine the softness of the grass; the brightness of the sun warming her body; the crystal clear ocean that crashed lightly against her feet as she stepped on the edge of it. She could even imagine the thrill that she got whenever the alarm sounded, signifying trouble.Break the Ice (Contest Entry)2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Although the ship had to make a jump into hyperspace, no one in the command crew knew where the ship was supposed to go. DeJosa had never informed anyone of the location of the cruiser they were going to board, and on the command deck, she was nowhere to be seen.
Clone Commander Avon, the commander under DeJosa, waited impatiently for the general to arrive.
Avon was a very serious commander, and this was necessary to counterbalance DeJosa's aloofness. He was a babysitter; and without him, nothing on the ship would be done until DeJosa needed things done for her own benefit. This stress had turned his hair grey, and left him looking more aged than he was.
He had gotten to the bridge early, 4:00 a.m., on her orders. Th

Thor was now leaving Asgard after visiting his father Odin, who wished to speak with him regarding the mortals that helped saved the nine realms from destruction at the hands of Loki. The conversation between Odin and Thor, like most of their discussions, was very brief and left the Thunder God wondering, for it seemed like Odin knew something that nobody else did and was intentionally hiding it. Thor could only begin to guess what his father was hiding, but whatever it was, it was something that was not meant to be revealed to anyone at this particular point of time.
He could only hope that whenever this secret was, it would be revealed to him and his fellow Avengers before it is too late. Thor continued to walk through the halls, his mind deep in thought regarding his conversation with Odin, and thus did not seem to notice the sound of approaching footsteps.

There are times in this life that I find myself left in awe.
Left in utter amazement and confusion alike. It wasn't fourteen hours ago that I had come staggering up the ramp
from the docks, more scarlet and black than I was flesh. By the fates,I was more dead than alive when I'd collapsed
in the arms of Clarke -- but even at that point, I couldn't have felt more alive. The blood trickling down my skin,
caught up in my hair, and promising nothing more than the evidence of living to be branded into my body. My pallete.
My canvas. My tablet to scrawl the stories of my life upon.

He makes me feel like an alcoholic. I'm sent up to the heavens under his gaze, his smi
