with the taste of cigarettes on my skin
On a gray September morning
when life feels too thin
with the bitter smell of coffee
lingering on my lips
that would be bliss
at my finger tips
You know why;
well, it reminds me of when we were together,
when life was a sigh,
of stormier weather
and rebellion in your eyes;
that's where I belong
Now and then I imagine
seeing you once more
in my dreams I watch
your bitter smile turn tragic
as you waltz through the door
the grip you had on cheek
slides to the floor
and you walk away without peep
you're gone like magic
Sometimes I wake up
with the taste of cigarettes on my skin
On a cold December morning
when life doesn't feel so thin
with the bitter smell of coffee
lingering on my lips
It is bliss
at my finger tips
to know you'll neve

right under your bed.
You say that the monster
fills you with dread
for he has red eyes
and claws as sharp as steel
and waits in the dark
for your soul to steal.
I say he's no monster,
just a big sourpuss.
I say he's not scary,
just a big doofus
for if those covers
protect you from he,
he'll never get past
your mommy and me.

Someone to Watch Over MeTony Stark listened absently as his assistant went through the numerous meetings, events, and reports that seemed to fill his day. It was less a matter of disinterest and more a matter of distraction, at least for today. He often got the impression that his company ran just fine without him making a few decisions or public statements here or there. Pepper could probably run everything without him if she really wanted.Someone to Watch Over Me7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Tony drummed his fingers against his chest, a fairly recent habit he'd developed, and waited for her to stop talking.
"Ms. Potts, don't worry about coming in tomorrow."
He was forced from distraction as Pepper stopped suddenly and spun around. It took good reflexes not to walk straight into her, and he was forced to reach out to steady her.
"Sir?" She looked worried, and he suddenly realized how poorly he'd worded the statement.
"You deserve a day off. Shouldn't have to worry about me on your birthday, so go ahead and take the whole day off. I'm sure I can manage one day.

She had (h/l) (h/c) hair, strangely dull (e/c) eyes, bandages were the only thing that covered her chest, and short ripped shorts.

"You bloody git! They are obviously wings!" England growled, nearly face palming. The american's eyes widened, and he ran up to touch the extra appendage. She flinched and spread her wings slowly, painfully wincing doing so.
"Oh my god!" England frowns.
Her wings were large and beautiful, but battered. There were pure white, at least, under all the scratches and dirt. Oddly, the left wing's middle was completely gone and wrapped

You often thought about what had happened in your life to lead you to where to this moment. You were a young, powerful senator who was leading the charge towards world peace. This put you on the hit list of many terrorist groups. You definitely weren’t the young girl from (hometown) anymore.
It was because of the constant threats on your life, and the nagging of your advisors, that you hired a bodyguard.
“An unfortunately attractive bodyguard,” you thought.
Ivan Braginski was tall and strong. He had light hair and violet eyes. He was also one of the most intimidating men you had ever seen. Hence why he made the perfect bodyguard.
You pulled your (h/c) hair into a tight bun and smoothed out your pencil skirt. Letting out a breath, you walked out of your home and into the backseat of the black car that was waiting for you. You busied yourself with papers and such, trying to avoid looking at the man next to you.

You watched as Kent and many others of the crew kept up to the tune of Smith's flute, Arnolds' fiddle, and Salem's drum. You clapped along with the beat and you laughed as one of the men fell. You suddenly felt a little hand grab your arm and you were pulled into it. You looked down to see a beaming and laughing Alfred.

Damned by the morning and by the light, our eyes lurk gloomily in the path of night.
We whisper tears throughout your sight, paralyzing your intelligence and fear of flight.
Alas flight is what you truly need, hence why your fate is for us to read.
In the air your body is thrown, whisked upon the dead; let your soul hear them moan.
Thrust forth and forgotten by the stain of blood, absorb the monstrosity from within the flood.
Bested by glasses and long dark coat, your flesh reeks a stench; thou shall be thrown in the moat.
Left to freeze and burn from the flames, thou is forevermore forgotten; the end of our games.

Diana was not having a good day. In fact, it was safe to say that she was having one of the worst days of her life.
It had all started when she’d she woken up. There had been another bogeyman attack in the middle of the night, so she’d climbed into her sister’s bed for protection. But she’d been so comfortable that she’d forgotten all about it. When she’d tried to leap out of bed to catch some morning cartoons, her foot had gotten caught on Averia’s leg.
Diana had hit the floor face first – and then Averia had fallen on top of her.
In the shower, Diana had gotten shampoo in her eyes. It wasn’t the kind that made her eyes hurt, but then her soap had slipped out of her hand. She’d bent down to

Lightning yawned and headed outside to get the newspaper. One of the best parts of her weekend was reading the newspaper while enjoying a mug of hot chocolate and some pancakes. However, she’d barely gotten through the front door before she tripped over something.
It was only her superb sense of balance that allowed her to stay upright instead of falling flat on her face. She turned to look at what she’d tripped over and scowled. There was another dead animal on her doorstep. It was a big one too – one of the deadly predators that stalked the plains near New Bodhum.
That was the third dead animal she’d tripped over this week. Where on earth were they all coming from? This thing couldn’t be more than a few hours old, and she knew for a fact that there was no way it could have gotten this far into New Bodhum without being spotted and dealt with. Someone or something must have brought it there.

Korra was the Avatar, the master of all four elements. A flick of her wrist could conjure flame, hurl earth, throw water, or summon a gale. When she really put her mind to it, there was very, very little that she couldn’t do.
Create a giant tidal wave? Check.
Start a raging inferno? Check.
Accidentally make a seething hurricane? Check.
Cause a disastrous earthquake? Check.
But as powerful as Korra was, there was one person who was even more powerful, a person who could, with but a flick of her wrist, command the Avatar who commanded the elements…
Her name was Asami.
