The crow lurks with fierce hunger in his sights
And a greedy desperate intent on the prize
He stalks, skulks, scopes and he sizes
Up this sandwich shop by the Northern Lights
The crow lurks as he spots the ladies and men
While they give their delicious, creative choices
Cookies, combos & cold cuts of great rejoice
Wait for those who gladly face the lion’s den
The crow lurks; he knows wary eyes are on him
That one wrong move spells disaster at least
That patience is key to a damned glorious feast
That the perfect steak-out won’t happen on a whim
The crow lurks; he’s picked a potential prospect
Taking a seat right beside his starving wing
A stout, bearded man both quiet and discerning
Though prone to error; forgot a straw he suspects
The crow lurks; a door opens, mere seconds to spare
He leaps from perch to prey with supreme swoop
His mind focused on a potential months-long scoop
Knowing now’s the time to catch the man unawa

"Nope. Never. I actually forbid you to do that. Ez, why would you ever even consider asking her on a date? Well, for one she's a girl, like, gross, and second, she's related to Garen, and you know for a fact that he would murder you" Taric exclaimed. "It would turn out so bad.."
-Sigh- "I know. And yes, I get what you are trying to say there, and no, I will not go out with you. But Lux is worth it. I don't care if Garen gets mad about it."
"There is no if.. he will. But don't come crying to me when he punches you while you sleep" I watch as Taric walks off down the hallway. I know that I will pay dearly for what I am about to do. But I don't care.
"Oh my gosh! Lux I'm so happy for you!" Soraka squeals. "You guys are totally going to get married and have pretty babies and omaigosh. This is so exciting"
"Woah Raka, its only one date, it could go horribly wrong, he could turn out to just be pranking me or something, getting my hopes up. What if he don't show up?" I do

I think I'm alone.
The darkness has swallowed me whole.
I can no longer hear cries that mirror my own.
I fear I'll fade into the shadows that I am submerged into.
My mind has lost the ability to remember.
I had an image I held so dear; it has faded too.
I know there were soft whispers and words meant to make me whole.
Those too have gone, leaving me with nothing but a feeling of despair.
I used to be so vibrant; I'm colorless here.
El error de un temorAl final mi error solo fue uno:El error de un temor2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Temí por lo que pudiese pasar si no lo lograba,
Lo que me pasaría a mí,
lo que pasaría con mi familia,
Lo que pasaría con el mundo….
Lo que te pasaría a ti
Temí de una extraordinaria manera por ti
Mi error fue que temí tanto por lo que te pudiese pasar,
Por los traumas que sufrirías,
Por la vida que arruinarías.
Que en un simple momento,
Deje de temer
Deje de temer por temer de ti
Mi miedo se desvaneció frente a un colosal temor,
Mis músculos tomaron la inteligencia que a mi cerebro pertenecía
Y con todo el temor que mis brazos tensaban
Me perdí en un gran error,
Un error que evite durante tanto tiempo,
Y por amarte yo temí
Y por temer, yo no te perdí a ti
Pero tu si a mi

The dynammic duo had been at it again.
"Vi, follow the plan!"
"Plan? I don't need a plan!"
"Vi! God damnit!" Caitlyn exclaimed as her partner launched into battle without so much as warning or precision... again. Caitlyn laid out a couple traps and, before she could blink, Vi was zooming back.
"I lied! Run!" She said, grabbing her partners arm. Caitlyn grabbed her hat and gun in one arm, as the other arm was preoccupied by being tugged out of socket. She heard all 3 of her traps go off and looked up to see a few champions tugging them open to get their legs out of them, grumbling their displeasure. Caitlyn smirked as Vi dragged her back into base.
"We're fine now, Vi." She said, pulling Vi to a stop and tugging her arm out of the iron grip. Vi turned around and smirked at the gunman.
"I know. Thanks to me!" She grinned all quirky. Caitlyn rolled her big brown eyes.
"Whatever you want to believe." She said, adjusting her hat on her head correctly and realigning her gun.
"Aww, C'mon Cai
GrowingThe friends I had,Growing7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
the memories we shared,
the lessons we learned,
the persons who cared.
Words gone unsaid,
the lives drifting apart,
my school life ending,
my true life given start.
Regret growing inside,
of the words left unspoken,
the lives I wished to touch,
my heart torn and broken.
Those friends so far away,
distant and grown mature,
my memories beginning to fade,
the life of my childhood a blur.
A familiar smile,
comes in to view,
my eyes begin to open,
thank God, it's you.

Poor little low-lifes,
he thought to himself,
such ignorant beings with such fragile images.
Towering over the wall of screaming children,
he merely watched their games
As they battered each other with

A girl with light-brown hair stomped in front of him,

"Where do you think you're going, smarty-pants."

he stalked on.
"You're not worth my time."
Anger bubbled beneath her pink skin
but he kept going

as he noticed two hazelnut eyes
trying to bear
two comet sized

His steps sounded through the strangely

vitamin water sloshing dangerously near the edge.
The boy smiled at him and they continued down the corridor,

Thank you for being the most ridiculous thing I will probably ever get involved with.
But I'm happy to say I'm finally over you.
We're good here.
We had some good times, some bad times, and a lot of sad times.
And you'll have many more like me
But I will never have any more like you.
I've painfully dwelled on the fact that you're no longer here for two years.
I realized I was fixated because I thought it was something to fixate over.
But it's not.
And you're nice enough people, but you're not something for me to fixate over.
You're a part of my past.
You're a mistake I made.
A mistake I'm happy I made because I learned so much from it.
But you're not my present,
Nor do I wish you were.
I'm happy for who and what I have, and wouldn't dream of mourning over my gifts.
I'm happy to say I don't feel pain anymore when I think of you.
I don't miss you.
This is the last thing I needed for my closure.
Just to say I'm ok.
And I sincerely hope you are too.
